It would make it easier to see which periods were strong or weak in producing all time greats. One could see e.g. how many 1960s born players were on the list, etc. It would also be easier to sort players based on birthyear. Thirdly, one could see at what age a player's career started and ended.

Regarding "career span"... Since Lidstrom's "senior" career started 1-2 years earlier than 1991 (link:, it seems as if you define "career span" as the seasons a player played in the NHL? So for Fetisov, it will say 1989-1998? What if guys like Suchy or Svedberg would end up on the list? What about Europeans who moved back to Europe to continue do well at a high level (for example, Salming was good enough to score 4+3 points in 8 GP in the 1992 Olympics).

I personally don't want to see team listed, for the reasons you mention.
