It's been two seasons since we ranked all NHL players, all positions, in one comprehensive list. Things can change a lot in that time, and I'm in the process of trying to find the thread in which we did this last so that we can compare when all is said and done.
Here's how it's going to work - For the next 48 hours, posters can comment "I'm in." if they want to take part. On Friday July 14th at 2:30pm we will have the finished list of participating posters.
I will put that list of posters in a hat (or dudacek can if he wants to, he was the mastermind of the first iteration which went very well) and draw names randomly. That will give the "draft order". For example, say Bill, Todd, Sally, Michael, Jess, and Freddy are drawn in that order. The picks would go as follows:
If you want to play, I'd advise taking some amount of time to look through rosters or scoring lists to have a general idea of your ranking list. I am going to go all out and make my list today and tomorrow, so I can cross guys out as they get picked and read off my highest ranked remaining player with little effort as the listing goes on. This is so I don't take Spezza because I forgot Getzlaf exists, which would skew the rankings and not actually represent how I feel about the two players.
If nobody wants to play then I will just post a 200+ name list of my preferred NHL players in order for everyone to ignore.
But it sounds like Eleven and WildCard have already declared their participation, so that makes three of us.
Who else is in? And if I've forgotten any wrinkles, do please remind us all.
