There's such an NHL bias to the draft, for the most part, that the ATDs to date could not be the foundation for what I've been thinking for a while could be a Top-1000 Hockey Players of All Time book unless it wasn't ranked, more divided by position, style of play, etc. The last few MLDs would be crucial for such a project, as many all-time greats slip through the cracks. Still, this forum has been more about the process of discovering the history of hockey. Some of the issues about cross-era comparisons are interesting tidbits that could be expanded on, or an imaginative book "What if...?" could work if it invites the reader to do likewise. A website or all-time draft computer game seems more relevant (when I joined these ATDs back in 2004 I thought doing an FHL fantasy game would be a lot of fun, spending months debating SP, SK, DF ratings, coming up with crossgenerational formulas and tweakings of SC, PA, OV).
