Or Have every person on the committee make a hypothetical dream team, every player on all teams go to elite list, do that 3 times and their is your elite list to start with. I'm sure their will be a lot of the same names picked by all the committee members, and that's ok because it makes my point of the best being that much better then the rest.
Hopefully the committee members are still apart of the game and actually kinda follow it and don't just look at season by season stats to make these decisions.
Then Any player you would replace X with Y is a major player.
Then to get to watch list go name by name and see if you'd replace any major player with any guy left on the list..
Then everyone else left from 2022 conference play is no points.
Elite list worth 2 points
Major list worth 1 point
watch list worth .5
point total 7for AA
3.5 for A
Then the elite list starts over the following year the same way. That way you don't penalize guys that have one good year with a sometimes career ending death sentence of being stuck on a list that they don't belong .
