I find the criticisms thrown at Iain's model in this thread are rather odd, why slate it for not having Thomas in the top 30 when he was a very late pick? If it should be criticized it should be for failing to recognize high picks that panned out like Yzerman being out of the top 30 in 1983 and Sundin being 22nd in 1989. In these cases the scouts obviously knew something that the stats couldn't pick up.
But if you read through the series it is obvious that these misses have been acceptable so far with the incredible roster put together without top 10 picks.
No updates since April worries me since I'm very interested in seeing how it works in an era where it could possibly have existed 1999-present. Will there be more updates on the Westerns?
