Where did you acquire this data? Sometimes these websites have players in the wrong position.

After Nugent-Hopkins got injured last season, Taylor Hall (LW) and Jordan Eberle (RW) were centered by Sam Gagner (C). Gagner has not regularly played on the wing since the 07-08 season. Eberle has spent his entire career with the Edmonton Oilers on the right wing.

For the Edmonton Oilers, here are some position corrections:
  • Teemu Hartikainen should be 20 LW, 16 RW and 10 C
  • Mark Arcobello should be 20 C
  • Chris Vandevelde should be 20 C
  • Lennart Petrell should be 20 RW, 18 LW and 14 C
  • Jordan Eberle should be 20 RW
  • Taylor Hall should be 20 LW, 16 C
  • Sam Gagner should be 20 C, 18 RW
  • Ryan Nugent-Hopkins should be 20 C
  • Anton Lander should be 20 C

When it comes to ratings, please take the following into considering:
  • Justin Schultz has 2.5 stars potential yet is considered to be a blue-chip prospect and potential #1 defenceman
  • Taylor Hall has 4 stars potential despite being a #1 overall. If Seguin is 5 stars, Hall must be as well given that Hall has a better points clip over the past 82 games than Seguin; further, Hall should have very high aggression and bravery as given his playstyle
  • Nugent-Hopkins as #1 overall should be 5 stars
  • Yakupov as #1 overall should be 5 stars
  • Ryan Smyth should have lower physical attributes
  • Ryan Whitney should have significantly lower physical attributes (can no longer skate effectively)
  • Ben Eager should have significantly higher physical attributes (very fast skater)
  • Mark Fistric is known for huge hits yet has a hitting of only 14

Captain is Shawn Horcoff. Assistants are Nick Schultz and Jordan Eberle.

Thanks. Been enjoying the game so far.
