I think the major issue i would have with that kind of problem would be that there probably isnt a substantial amount of evidence showing a non-hpp player getting selection or advancing beyond the top HPP players - i would have to go back and do some digging to see if that is really the case, and if so it would mean some great players are really being missed or missing opportunity. I guess we are squabbling over the 4th line players either way. Although, to the players involved, that can be a pretty big deal when it comes to jr draft time or potential pro upside.
