Why were these players downgraded/upgraded?

This is strictly about Franchise Mode / Offline modes. No idea why HUT has different ratings. Anyway, what is up with these:

Luke Schenn 84 overall (upgraded)

Erik Gudbranson 86 overall (upgraded)

James Reimer 82 overall (downgraded)

Reto Berra 78 overall (downgraded)

Keep posting questionable ratings. Personally don't understand these 4. Both Reimer and Berra had good stats, especially Reimer and got downgraded. I'm not sure Panthers would've signed Reimer on a 5 year 3.4 million a year contract with 82 overall.

Then Luke Schenn, who was thought to be a waste of roster space last season suddenly jumped to 84.

And as much as I love Gudbranson he did absolutely nothing to improve his rating to 86 and elite potential. Why would Panthers trade such D man for a very low value 80 overall McCann?

    Reimer isn't that good at all. Plus, if he was that good, Toronto would have kept him. I think an 82 is more than fair.

    Reto Berra should not have been downgraded, I agree. As for the other 2, it is questionable, but acceptable. You also have to take into account that EA's grading system is flawed. Certain attributes jack up overalls too high while other attributes do hardly anything for the overall.

    A lot of you guys don't ever think... When choosing the attributes it's not only about the player but about the team... You have to think about who they are playing with...

    Why does individual player ratings and potential depend on the team?

    Probably cause if it didn't and you didn't do it upon the players they are playing with and gave everyone a decent rating just because of their playing abilities even though they get traded to a team who is bad all team ratings would probably be through the roof with guys with no talent at all
