You answered your own statement this SHOULD be about potential. If it were about NHL games played, then our impromptu Top 20 would look terrible with Kalinski, Holmstrom, Rinaldo, Wellwood, and Sestito at the top. Unfortunately this has become some sort of hybrid abomination where some picks it becomes potential and some it is NHL readiness.
