NHL 09 Categorized Player Ratings

IGN has finally posted every player rating for NHL 09. The only thing missing? Overall ratings.

How come?

"One thing these ratings are lacking is an overall rating -- at this stage of the game, EA's still tweaking the game and its AI, which affects the overall ratings to the point where they're not ready to be confirmed."

Last summer, EA released the ratings at the end of August. Maybe with the huge build up and demand for 09 they decided to whet our appetites a bit with some numbers early on.

What we can examine in the meantime are some individual rating categories for guys.

Offensive Awareness
Sidney Crosby-99
Joe Thornton-97
Evgeni Malkin-97
Sergei Gonchar-96
Pavel Datsyuk-95
Alexander Ovechkin-95
Ilya Kovalchuk-94
Jarome Iginla-93
Vincent Lecavalier-93
Henrik Zetterberg-92
Patrick Kane-92
Jonathan Toews-90
Dion Phaneuf-85
Mike Green-85

Defensive Awareness
Nicklas Lidstrom-96
Zdeno Chara-95
Sergei Fedorov-93
Dion Phaneuf-85
Mike Green-85
Mike Komisarek-85
Brian Campbell-80

hmmm strange...

Datsyuk Def awareness = 85
zetterberg def awareness = 90
crosby def awareness = 92

but i thought he couldn't play both sides of the ice??? i guess the haters are wrong again.

not that a video game is the deciding authority on the issue.
