6) Just take the best ones by stats and chemistry.
7) Keep it simple and stupid.
Let's make #4 "top-six" and I'm sure we can all agree. Because otherwise, #4 and #6 contradict each other.
And #5 can't come to fruition no way, no how. First of all, we have only 18 NHL skaters, out of which only 5 are d-men. And even if you take all of our NHLers and stick them in there whichever way you can (which contradicts #6 too, that's no way to build the best team), you still need a minimum of 4 non-NHL players. So there can only be a 84% NHL ratio at best. Can't go higher no matter what. A realistic count is somewhere around 75%, but it can go even lower. Though I suppose it's still true... yes, it
be 95% NHLers. We just can't achieve that.
