Going over the letters:
A - will assuredly achieve potential (eg Crosby=10A)
F - almost no chance of achieving potential (F is almost never given with D being the lowest)
10 - Generational talent (eg Crosby)
9 - Perpetual -aAll Star (eg JT)
8 - Sometimes All-Star (eg Marleau)
7 - Tweener (4/5 dman, sometimes top 6 forward, definitely top 9)
6 - Grinder (6/7 dman, 4th liner/reserve forward)
I had a problem figuring who should top out. I had about 5 guys at 7D in my rankings, the rest lower.
in HF a 7 is not a tweener -- it is a "Second line forward / No. 3-4 defenseman / journeyman No. 1 goaltender"
in HF 6 is " - Third line forward / No. 5-6 defenseman / Backup Goaltender
in HF 5 is " Fourth line forward / No. 7 defenseman / depth goaltender"
