I think an underlying, quantifiable 'dividend' needs to be present to keep opinions in line. I would suggest player's share of ice-time per point earned multiplied by a set magnitude. Then there's no way Phaneuf would be more valuable than Lidstrom. People would still have opinions and 'buy' speculatively, but I think people would be smart to try to buy the best performing players, which would take literally hundreds of opinions and combine them, which can be more valuable than one or two 'expert' opinions IMO. There might be a better mechanism to achieve this goal, but I think it could be more valuable than some 'garbage-in garbage-out' statistics.
