    This thread will cover some analysis of the results from these threads:

    Centers - HFBoards Top 31 NHL Centers

    Wingers - HFBoards Top 31 NHL Wingers

    Defenders - HFBoards Top 31 NHL Defenders

    Goalies - HFBoards Top 20 NHL Goaltenders

    Now that the HF Top Players by Position polls have concluded, I did some simple analysis on the results. Basically just breaking things down by team, country, and division, as well as looking at the averages, minimums, and maximums.

    One thing to note - I added a "Points" column, which is basically a very crude metric of how "good" a team should be simply based on their "top-line" talent. This is as simple as assigning points per ranking. So Tampa would get 31 points for having Kucherov in 1st for wingers, Chicago gets 30 for Kane in 2nd, and so on. This is clearly a flawed metric for several obvious reasons, but that's for another thread and argument.

    With that said, here are some of the results (I'll add some of my own commentary in the next comment):
