A top 100 players list would look very different from the first 100 picks of the draft.
I've done a couple of ATDs, one here and one elsewhere (the one here was pretty damn good learning experience, I got my ass kicked), and I found one thing that tends to happen with a lot of GMs (thought not all) is that watching goalies go in particular you'll see the dominos start to fall after the first five all-time greats are taken. Obviously it speaks to team building as you said, but in the end you don't want to be caught without someone to dance with once the music starts.
EDIT: Also, once the play-offs matches are set I'd be happy to take a load of PMs to determine the winner and to be of assistance with the write-ups.
