And the aversion around starting one's team with a pure offensive player (not named Gretzky or Lemieux). I think this even counts for Eddie Shore, although we shall see if that is justified or not. Seeing Shore and Hull fall out of the top-10 is strange to me.

I actually think it is easier to start building the offense around a winger simply because the center position is so much deeper, but to each his own.

edit: I've got a pretty good idea how I would build around Bobby, but it is unconventional and would not be that easy to pull off in terms of getting the right support personnel. I am curious to see what MadAr has up his sleeve.
