Flyers NHL13 rankings are out, and your favorite player is horribly underrated as usual!

If there won't be any actual hockey in the near future, why not some virtual hockey?

Above are the individual player rankings for this year's version of EA Sports' NHL 13 (via PuckDaddy) and as you can tell by a quick glance, some players are rated a little lower than they should be. Sure, it might be the homer in me, but Wayne Simmonds had a career year last year with 28 goals... shouldn't be be better than he was last year? Talbot also dropped two points from an 81 to a 79 despite scoring the most goals in his six NHL seasons, and don't even get me started on Couturier and Read who both showed they belonged (defensively & offensively respectively). One or two other weird things to mention are that Andreas Lilja - whom I don't care about in the slightest - and Ruslan Fedotenko were left off the roster completely while Chris Pronger sits at an 85 when he probably won't see the ice ever again. These changes will probably be fixed during the first or second update, but until then we have something to gripe about.
