EA SPORTS NHL 16 Colorado Avalanche left wings

Gabriel Landeskog: 89 (NHL 15: 88)
Gabriel Landeskog got one more point than I gave him. But, he totally deserves it. A great captain who tied Jarome Iginla for the team-internal scoring title.

Alex Tanguay: 84 (NHL 15: 84)
Alex Tanguay’s rating didn’t change. I personally didn’t want it to change. Tanguay doesn’t deserve to have it changed (in either direction).

Blake Comeau: 83 (NHL 15: 82)
One of the rare times when I agree with EA. Comeau deserved a tiny upgrade and he got it. However, he is listed as a right winger in EA Sports NHL 16.

Cody McLeod: 79 (NHL 15: 78)
Instead of getting a downgrade, EA decided to give Cody McLeod an upgrade. They also moved him to the right wing. Something must have been confused.

Patrick Bordeleau: 77 (NHL 15: 77)
If McLeod is a 79, Patrick Bordeleau’s 77 is probably okay. However, neither one should actually be rated this high.
