Gabriel Landeskog: 88 (NHL 15: 88)
EA actually nailed this one. Well, if the game was about beauty, Landeskog would clearly be a 99. But it isn’t, and Landeskog isn’t the modern Wayne Gretzky. Still, he’s the Avalanche’s best left wing, a great player and a great captain.

Alex Tanguay: 84 (NHL 15: 84)
Remember when I said EA’s ratings often suck? Well, they do. But it looks like they were alright on the left wings. Tanguay is one of Colorado’s best, but in his mid-30s, he likely won’t go any higher anymore.

Blake Comeau: 82 (NHL 15: 82)
Told you, they got these right. Comeau is the No. 3 on the Avalanche’s depth chart. He’s a good two-way forward that may also get some time on the second line, if he has to. Nothing more, nothing less.

Cody McLeod: 76 (NHL 15: 78)
Good ol’ Cody McLeod is one of the Avalanche’s assistant captains and apparently a great presence in the locker room. On the ice, however, he really isn’t that great anymore. Good fighting skill, but that’s about it.

Patrick Bordeleau: 73 (NHL 15: 77)
Bordeleau is similar to McLeod, except he’s neither a great presence in the locker room, nor a great player. Sorry Patrick, but this should be your last time listed on the Avalanche’s roster.
