With Rick Nash traded to New York, EA Sports was quick to turn around what the star right winger will look like in his new Rangers gear in "NHL 13."

As for how his inclusion in the lineup will affect the overall team’s rating, I got a surprising answer when I asked Andy Agostini, the game’s database and online producer.

“We checked, and the star rating (new ratings system for teams) doesn’t change for the Rangers,” Agostini said. “Nash comes in but [Artem] Anisimov and [Brandon] Dubinsky leave making the Rangers have a better 1st line but they lost 3 roster players from their team. So for the NHL team it becomes a bit of a wash.”

The Rangers are rated three-and-a-half stars out of five on offense, four-and-a-half stars on defense and four-and-a-half stars at goalie.
