    There have been three all-time drafts of the best ever players, and yet there are many great players deserving of selection as among the best, or at least, the next best.

    So let's have another draft to determine "The All-time Next-Best".

    Rules:

    All of the players selected in the first three all-time drafts are off limits (a complete list will be posted as soon as the x3 draft is finished).

    Otherwise, the rules are pretty much the same as the last all-time draft except there's only a 12-hour clock.

    G.M.s of all-time drafts are guaranteed a spot and rights to their NHL team name if they wish to keep with the same franchise.

    * = spot reserved for sure

    (The next priority will go to guys I've invited by PM)

    Sign-up:

    1. Victoria Aristocrats - VanIslander *
    2. Thunder Bay Steamers - Dr. Moses *
    3. xxxxxxxxxxxxx - Spitfire11 *
    4. Brampton Blue Devils - BuppY
    5. Toronto Maple Leafs - Leaf Lander *

    The teams are like farm teams, sort of. Imagine the players picked in the three all-time best drafts were unavailable. What players would you choose to make the best team possible from among the previously undrafted?

    Some guys to be drafted should be playing with the best ever, others are indeed best only among those of the second-tier of all time.

    There are plenty of guys who could be considered sleepers or steals, as deserving of promotion to the best-ever. Many have been just great players worthy of some recognition.

    G.M.s of any of the three previous all-time drafts have PRIORITY and are guaranteed a spot.

    To be clear, I added an asterix * after those who it applies to.

    But,... there will be spots for fresh blood (I've PM'd a few committed G.M.s from other drafts at HFboards, who would be valuable if they decided to join).

    I'll PM every G.M. of the previous all-time drafts, and give them a few days to respond to claim a spot.

    We could end up going with 20.

    We'll see.

    There will be a 7-day recruitment period, starting today, and the draft will begin next weekend. And there are a lot of good players that have had several great seasons, even if not quite HOF worthy.

    20 is better. With 30, you always have drifters and guys who drop out.

    Hey, that ECHL team is only one or two players away from a Cup... provided I can sign Jesus. However, he's still kind of miffed about the last time a group of people hung him out to dry.

    I really think this should be just open to the last all time draft. No offense I am sure that people are great hockey minds, but at the same time it would be more of a farm team based system, which would be much more interesting, but I am in either way.

    In sticking with the farm team theme, I'll be the Edmonton Roadrunners.
