I am working on a huge project regarding the draft. When perfected, it will be able to answer practically anything you will want to know about the draft since 1969. One tweak I am looking at is the defensemen. With forwards, you can almost look at their career offensive totals and know whether they were a franchise player, top liner, 2nd liner, or so on. With defensemen it is a bit trickier. Point totals help, but they tell only a part of the story. In 20 years someone could look at Jason Smith's bio and say "hmm, looks like your average stay at home 3rd-pairing guy" but we know better. So, to those 35 and over, I ask you: looking at defensemen from the 70's and 80's, which ones are the Jason Smiths and Brendan Witts of their time? Who was deceptively good? And, who are the Jason Woolleys and Oleg Tverdovskys of that era, whose offensive numbers don't do justice to how mediocre they really were?
