is it possible to do a more detailed player analysis for each player over the course of each year... updating say the top 20 each year. I notice that a blurb tends to get written when guys are drafted, but they are rarely updated in their individual pages... (not *****in' about the fantastic work you guys do at all)

for example we could rate (on a scale of 1-10; 1 being hopelessly inept, and 10 being on par with an NHLer reknown for their hands/speed/hockey-sense/etc, with 5 being average for an NHLer):
straight-away speed,
speed with the puck,
skating technique,
turning/pivoting,
balance,
agility,
hockey-sense,
levels of play with and without the puck,
shot power and accuracy,
stick-work (magic hands, or hands of stone),
nastiness indicator (ie i read recently that plekanec plays "dirty")
improvement from one write-up to the next (i.e. went from a 5.5 to 7.0 because...)

i'd find an updated section like that VERY interesting, especially since i don't actually get to see as much hockey as i'd like!

Aside from the above... what can you say about Korneev? He's jumped WAY up the charts recently... what does his play look like from that one time you saw him?
