Someone who hasn’t played a video game in years may not have the best perspective on this, but here goes:
WEEI.com was able to get their hands on a copy on a copy of NHL ’11, the most recent edition of the popular EA Sports hockey video game. After taking a gander at the ratings of Bruins players, Boston fans should have something to say about how their team is represented.
Overall, the team is an 88. The offense is an 87 and the defense is an 85. The goaltending gets an 89.
Here are the individual ratings. First, the skaters:
Zdeno Chara: 89
Marc Savard: 88
Nathan Horton: 84
David Krejci: 83
Milan Lucic: 83
Michael Ryder: 82
Marco Sturm: 82
Mark Recchi: 82
Patrice Bergeron: 82
Mark Stuart: 81
Blake Wheeler: 81
Daniel Paille: 80
Gregory Campbell: 79
Andrew Ference: 78
Johnny Boychuk: 78
Matt Hunwick: 77
Shawn Thornton: 77
Zach Hamill: 76
Adam McQuaid: 74
Tyler Seguin: 74
And the goaltenders:
Tuukka Rask: 84
Tim Thomas: 84
It seems pretty fitting that Rask and Thomas, seemingly neck-and-neck entering camp, are given the same ratings. And for what it’s worth, Taylor Hall is a 75.
