Well! We know NHL 17 franchise mode and ratings was a bullcrap to ruin their game. I love NHL 17 roster ratings! For example, nick bjugstad: NHL 17 give 86 as 2nd line forward. When nhl 18 overall release, nick bjugstad drop to 82 overall as 3rd checking forward . I don't understand why EA NHL 18 players overall drop everything except some players were grow overall. If I'm play NHL 18 franchise mode when the game come, I will change overall and make similar to NHL 17 roster overall ratings. Here is my example of NHL 18 overall rating change: Forwards: First Line Forward = 89 OVR - 99 OVR Second Line Forward = 86 OVR - 89 OVR Third Line Scoring Forward = 84 OVR - 85 OVR Third Line Checking Forward = 82 OVR - 83 OVR Fourth Line Forward = 80 OVR - 82 OVR Depth forward=78 OVR-80 OVR Minor forward= under 78 OVR Defensemen: Top 2 Defenseman = 87 OVR - 99 OVR Top 4 Defenseman = 84 OVR - 87 OVR Top 6 Defenseman = 80 OVR - 83 OVR Depth Defenseman = 78 OVR - 79 OVR minor defenseman= under 77 OVR Goaltenders: Elite Goaltender = 90 OVR - 99 OVR Starting Goaltender = 85 OVR - 89 OVR Backup Goaltender = 81 OVR - 84 OVR Minor goalie= under 80 OVR I hope everyone will boost at least one or two overall until NHL 18 come. Let's find out which players will be great performance on 2017-2018 NHL regular season.
