Love the update, its not as big as what I would of liked to have done, but I will take what I can get.

I wish NHL would do it more dynamically like 2K, It would be great to get the updates more frequently and experience players who are hot and cold.

As for changes, I would tweak a couple.

Tyler Johnson should be bumped a little higher, dude is enfuego right now.
David Pastrnak? I get its earlier but he looks good, he should get a bump.
Colin Wilson, He has been awesome lately. Maybe next update?

A few things-

This is FAR too late. They already lost most of people's interest in the game.

Those few ratings don't even look good. Mike Smith is statistically the worst goalie in the league right now and he's still rated that high. Mike Richards is an 85... maybe 5 years ago. It's absurd that he is only rated one point lower than Filip Forsberg.

And the worst thing of all- every player listed above is rated 80 or higher. There is no difference between players!

Please come back Revamped Rosters.

Pastrnak is now 76 overall with an elite potential which I think is great, I would have put his overall a bit higher but considering EA standards, it's a good start.

you should probably look at the PDF. There are a lot of changes but OS just listed five increases and five descreases.

It appears as if not even the pdf has all the changes, considering that Pastrnak isn't listed there but in game there is an increase in his overall and potential.

I just looked at the PDF. That is a ridiculous amount of players rated 78-83. And that's not even half the players in the NHL. Seriously, there is no difference between the 4th liners and the 1st liners.
