      I'll address scope / goals / "to do" list shortly in a separate post.
      Suffice it to say for now that my goal is most definitely *not* to
      duplicate hockeydb.com in CSV format.

      As far as the chances of this project killing off hockeydb.com, I
      honestly don't think there's much to worry about.
      Baseball-reference.com has continued to grow despite the fact that the
      underlying data is freely available (there has even been talk of
      adding employees in the blog recently).
