Jarome Iginla: 86 (NHL 15: 86)
The Avalanche’s best scorer of the 2014-15 season, Jarome Iginla deserves to be one of their highest-rated players. He may drop down due to age-related regression, but we’ll hope for the best.

Nathan MacKinnon: 86 (NHL 15: 86)
MacKinnon’s name stands alone as the personified slump that last season was. Why? Nobody knows. He showed what he can do in the world’s best league, and there is no doubt that he’ll get back to that.

Dennis Everberg: 77 (NHL 15: 70)
Everberg came out of Sweden’s second-tier league. Therefore, his original rating was no surprise. He did, however, prove that he can play in the NHL, and despite having an injured shoulder, he should be able to build on that next season.

Mikko Rantanen: 73 (NHL 15: 69)
Rantanen was one of TPS Turku’s best players last season. He will likely start the 2015-16 campaign in San Antonio, but I thought it would be fun to add him here anyway. In EA SPORTS NHL 16, he would deserve a 73 rating, and if he manages to make the roster out of training camp, it could go even higher.
