Team: 2020-21 Pittsburgh Penguins
Team Explanation
why does EA always fail at player ratings?

my thoughts...
forwards
Crosby-93 (he's still number 1 until McDavid wins)
Malkin-92 (bc of his renaissance last year)
Guentzel-89 (40 goals. period. give the man some respect.)
Rust-86 (point-per-game player last year. legit top-6 winger)
Zucker-85 (20 goals 50 points penciled in. consistency. can't wait to see a full season in PIT)
Kapanen-83 (who does he play with and can he finish consistently?)
McCann-81 (because of his slump to end last year he isn't higher.)
Tanev-80 (Nicknamed Turbo for a reason)
Blueger-80 (great defensively and has #3C potential)
ZAR-80 (amazing defensively but I wish he could get a goal every once in a while)
Sceviour-78 (good on the PK)
Erod-78 (nice but small sample size. let's see what he can bring)
jankowski-77 (awful year last year, hope he can regain his game)
Lafferty-77 (showed flashes but needs to prove he can be a NHL regular)

defense
Letang-89 (why is doughty a 91? like seriously!)
Marino-85 (great rookie year with #1 potential)
Dumoulin-85 (ridiculously underrated. top-5 defensive D-man in the NHL)
Pettersson-83 (took a step back from a good first year in PIT but is still young)
Riikola-80 (PLAY THE MAN!)
Matheson-78 (for now. I'm intrigued by his shot and speed.)
Ruhwedel-78 (good 7th D but that's all.)

goalies
Jarry-84 (one good year but was picked high for a reason)
desmith-81 (fine backup goalie)

Not many people go on the Forums. Plus who cares, if he could’ve posted it on the Forums. It’s hockey, and he wants to say what he thinks. At least it’s about hockey.

not in pure skill or impact but factoring in reputation and trophies, etc. like Messi is still soccer's #1 even though there are better younger players...
