    When should we expect the next version to be released? I value the opinions of HF's distinguished posters, and plenty has happened since the last list was made (2009) to shake up the order.

    When somebody is willing to take charge of it, hopefully this summer.

    I may be alone on this one, but, other than the influx of new and departure of old posters changing the composition of the voters, re-attacking this more than once every few years is probably unneccessary. I feel like Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby have played their ways up the list, but that precious little else has changed. Henrik Sedin, Daniel Sedin, Duncan Keith, Jonathan Toews ... I don't think any of these guys have significantly changed their stock in terms of where they stack up all-time, and they're the trophy winners.

    That said, I'd be interested to see if my cynicism is justified or not ...

    There has been a lot of new information presented about some older players in recent all time drafts. For example, Frank Nighbor really is laughably low.

    The unintentional bias against post-1980 players really could stand to be fixed.

    Selanne and Pronger are must adds IMO. What makes them worse than Brett Hull and Borje Salming respectively?

    My interest in an annual list of this sort is three-fold....

    1) Who the newcomers might be and where they'd rank their first time on (i.e. Selanne, Crosby, Ovechkin, etc.)

    2) Whether the ever-growing achievements of players already on the list affects the ordering (Lidstrom, Brodeur, etc.)

    3) If players snubbed in the past benefit from evolving attitudes (Niedermayer, Bure, Pronger, Lindros, Iginla etc.)

    The last complete list is 3 years old. Plenty has happened during that span. It's time for a new list.

    Right now there is a HHOF project going on, which has fizzled a bit maybe to the format and the playoffs starting as well.

    I'm new to the site, in that I wasn't around when the last list was put up and have a minority opinion on the current list and would gladly like to be involved in a new updated list.

    Ditto..... And pursuant to the earlier post, what "project" is it that the HHOF is working on?.....

    Even as huge Selänne supporter, Pronger is perhaps the biggest omission. Salming I think gets extra points as a pioneer. No comment on Brett Hull tho...I have trouble respecting him since his lack of respect for the game. (various interviews...incidentally same kind of things drop Mario a bit in my eyes)
    Crosby and Ovechkin just haven't had long enough careers yet to justify them being in top100 lists.

    hull won a hart and a pearson though, scored 50 in 50 two times, and he was much better in the playoffs

    and the year he scored 86 goals the next best scored 51

    Hull had the higher peak, but

    1) he really only had a few seasons at that level. Selanne has had more seasons as a superstar.

    2) Hull's "peak" was highly influenced by Adam Oates.
