Thanks for your help.

This rating will probably help also in determining the

value of the player after his career has begun.

I'm sure I'll run into the situation that I will have

too many minutes on one team while not enough on

another.

I'll also run into the situation that I have two small

forwards ( for example ) and will have to move someone

to balance out the minutes played.

I'll have to balance minutes played somehow.
