    Just watched the Be a Legend video, and on it, you can see the Karlsson card from HUT. His rating in it is an 83, with a potential of 91. I can also make out his stats to be 87 Skating, 80 Shooting, 86 Hands, 74 Checking, and 82 Defence. One would think his player attributes would reflect these.

    Oh dear God, I've just realised how pathetic I am. Don't look at me!!

    I like that they've come back with potential in numbers instead of letters. Or both would be good.

    The # for potential is only for HUT, BaGM uses Letter grades still.

    Nope, I am just assuming based on last years game. That's the way it's been for a while. Also, HUT ratings were different from the rest of the game. I won't be getting the game early anymore since I no longer live in Brampton, and don't want to drive 4 1/2 hrs to get a game. Sad

    4.5 hours each way + gas for a week early. Yeah that's a head scratcher. I wonder if I were to grease the palm of the guy at EB if he'd give me a copy early.

    If your store is anything like the store we have here, the EB Games guy probably greases his palm quite a bit himself, already. Maybe a Large Slurpee would work better.

    Wait, that sounds ... wrong. Never mind. Has hockey started yet?

    Aw Sad I think it is cool. It's obviously going to be abused by the immature players online.

    You guys should try EASHL. Do you have two consoles with two live accounts?

    We have 2 consoles, but we don't go online believe it or not. We like to GM teams with the trading and signing and stuff. I play...probably 50 of the games a year and sim the rest, she'll sim them all.

    When the prices of consoles came down we just got a 2nd one so we wouldn't have to fight over it. I've thought about online play, or even updating rosters and stuff, but I'm pretty content GMing. StickmanDancing

    Well if either of you ever decide to give EASHL (essentially online be a pro) a go, let me know. I play with some friends and we'd have you out for a few games.

    There is an extended demo at some store in Toronto, and somebody jotted down a few of the notable players overalls from around the league. He noted all the Leafs overalls as well as potential, and a couple of key players from other teams:

    This is not a link to the original post, but someone who compiled the info from several posts made by the HFBoards guy:

    Alfie is the lone Sens representative, with an overall of 84. To put things into perspective, Matt Lombardi is an 83.

    Well the early release is out in Europe already and a select few have the full game, so info is being slowly released.

    FYI Spezza's overall is 88.

    It appears they're giving away 80s like they were candy.

    Operation Sports has released a video of the rosters with player ratings and overalls. Here is the link to their youtube channel:

    http://www.youtube.com/MrOperationSports#p/u/3/2WT6VUZSQZg

    And here is the Ottawa Senators roster:

    J. Spezza 88 C
    S. Gonchar 85 C-
    D. Alfredsson 84 D
    C. Phillips 84 C
    M. Michalek 84 C
    E. Karlsson 83 B-
    N. Foligno 82 B-
    C. Neil 82 C
    M. Svatos 81 C
    M. Carkner 81 C
    F. Kuba 81 C
    P. Regin 81 C
    Z. Konopka 80 C
    Z. Smith 80 B- (no new contract)
    B. Butler 79 B- (no new contract)
    J. Winchester 79 B- (wrong cap hit)
    B. Lee 79 B-
    R. Shannon 79 C
    F. Lessard 77 C
    C. Greening 76 C
    E. Condra 74 C
    A. Benoit 74 C
    S. Da Costa 70 C


    Really surprised to see Shannon on the team as he has outright signed with another team. Will have to change some of Greening and Condra's stats, as I'm sure they don't have Greening's speed, or Condra's D ability.
