On which basis to reject?
Suppose you reject, say, me, on the basis that I'm in a well-represented demographic (30-39).
Well, you end up having the Quebec demographic underrepresented (considering its importance in the history of hockey), the Habs declared fans underrepresented (again, considering its importance in the history of hockey) and the French demographic totally absent (... I think).
That's only my case, but I'm pretty convinced there are others who are in a similar situation...
not to mention, the implication attached when someone says that there were not enough older posters, is that older posters are somehow better or more qualified to compare these goalies on a historical basis.
