      Ah, thank you all for the responses.

      I definitely appreciate the work you put in. I can't imagine how much time it must take to compile stats and create ratings for 800+ players every year. I run my own sim league (http://www.angelfire.com/planet/hha/) and that's time-consuming enough.

This way, the team would have an extra 2 months to get in the ratings, test them, tweak them, retest them etc. One possibility would be to take one extra month to do the work and then release the disk in mid-to-late September, before the new NHL season begins.

I just figured that since the APBA ratings are based only on the stats from the regular season and not the playoffs, there's no need to wait until mid-June to start working on at least the first phase of the disk project.
