Ron is a poor man's 3rd/4th line center in the ATD so I personally think he warrants selection earlier than McKay. But if you're that high on McKay that think he should go back up to ATD 4th lines where he started, then this one can be considered debatable too.
Poor Dwayne has unfortunately become the punch line of ATD statements about mediocre players lately. He will see his stock fall next year, deservedly so. Will he fall past McKay? Should he? I'm open to arguments there.
Darryl should probably not be picked before McKay. But he usually isn't, either. (there was a streak of 4 drafts - 8 to 11 - where he was selected an average of 384 slots after McKay)
**** should definitely not be picked before McKay. But he never is.
Obviously, Brent and Brian were much, much better players than McKay. Ron was quite a bit better too at his peak.
I don't see any substantial difference between McKay and Duane. If anything, McKay seems to have been a bigger part of his championship teams than Duane was. When I criticized the Duane Sutter pick in the ATD, it's because I knew I could get someone at least as good 600+ picks later or whenever McKay usually goes.
By the way, I gave you feedback on the "re-do" idea via PM, because you asked me specifically via PM.
