three would probably do.

Personally, due to the questions i've mostly gotten, you'd probably want to do 4 or five

1)superstar (probably top 5 in the league at their position)
2) First line/first pairing
3) second line/second pairing
4)3rd line/3rd pairing
5)utility/depth (4th line/7th dmen/callups/etc)

I think whats interesting is just frlom recollection of the names on the list it seemed to me that outside the top 3 picks, "superstar" and even "first line/first pairing" types seemed to come pretty uniformly over the next 20. But that little tidbits primarily anecdotal.

as for the idea of minute per game, that's a good idea, but i had recalled reading somewhere as to why it could be a bad data point, but can't for the life of me recall what it was. It would be nice to compare even strength minutes as i think PP/PK would be too dependent on the team
