Gamers beware, NHL 09 player ratings are out

From Greg Wyshynski of Yahoo! Sports:

Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby has more offensive awareness (99) than Alexander Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals (95). He’s also faster, more agile, a better passer, more disciplined, and has the same slap-shot accuracy and power. (Ed. Note: My sleepy, pre-coffee eyes misread the shot power numbers. Ovechkin is at 90; Crosby is at 88. Still a little too close.) Ovechkin is, of course, tougher; and has better poise than Crosby (thanks, Mike Richards).

We know all of this because IGN has bestowed upon puckheads today’s great time-sucker: The player ratings for EA Sports NHL 09.

Nice find by the Puck Daddy.  I’m sure there are a ton of debatable ratings, which I will leave for all you gamers to argue over.

What a wild and wacky Friday.
