I haven't started this one, but I did create my personal list of the top 50 defensemen ever awhile back.

I basically did what you said. I ranked names until it stopped being easy anymore, somewhere around 30-35. Then I collected a bunch of names that I thought were in the next tier and did my best to pick the best, add him to my list and repeat. Ended up moving around a lot of these guys once they were added. This got me into the 40s, then I picked another group of guys. Ended up with a list of 50 plus 7-8 Honorable Mentions... heh.
