What I mean is, by the time we're 1300 picks deep, we're left with mostly middling NHL players, and the resumes of the players we do select are "beefed up" with senior, international, and minor league accomplishments. In a lot of cases they are much more attractive players than NHL-only guys who are left.

Still, I wouldn't be in favour of just "cutting off" the pipeline of players from the NHL to the ATD. I always want to get the next best player, and quite often he played significant hockey somewhere other than the NHL, just like 11 of the 24 selections I made in this AA draft.

I see that a Top-1000 thread has been created. Come on in and give us some examples of players who would be good picks right now, with little to no NHL experience. They are out there.
