All great ideas, guys. I was thinking about Satan too. He's definitely one of the leading point-getters among the undrafted players.

I did some research and there are 9 hall of famers not drafted. What's holding these guys back?

Jimmy Gardner LW
Shorty Green F
Tom Hooper F
Steamer Maxwell Rover
Frank Rankin Rover
George Richardson D
Oliver Seibert C
Harry E. Watson C
Frederick Whitcroft Rover

As you may have guessed, they are all from the pre-NHL days. Their bios on legendsofhockey are quite impressive and I think they appear every bit as worthy as celebrated picks like Harry Trihey and his shamrocks.

The three whose only listed position is Rover may be hurt by the fact that there is no such thing as a rover now, but wouldn't there still be a place for them as forwards, even on a MLD team? The fact that they all made the HHOF as players speaks to their greatness in their time, so if they truly don't belong here I am interested to hear why.
