They did do very well last year in a league I'm in, however I think
you did a good job in limiting these players' potential by adjusting
the hidden ratings. I guess I'll know for sure this season, which is
just starting in the league with no maximum play restrictions.

the shots he faces against the top teams, he'd be their starter.
I'm not sure how exactly to work this out, other than subjectively.
One could make an argument that a goalie that faces a ton of
shots with a .905 save % (like CuJo when he was in St. Louis) is
as good as or better than a goalie who doesn't face many shots
with a .915 (say Belfour, Brodeur, or Turek). However, does the
goalie on the better team face more 'quality' shots? Could go
either way there.

had, as its #1 line, Lindros-LeClair-B.Hull. The three of them consistently
finish in the top 10 scorers, and in fact have finished in the top 5 more
than once. In fact, at the end of the last season all thre were in the top
10, two of them in the top 5 (along with my second-line centre Lafontaine).
So with come combinations, it works very well; your mileage may vary.
