10+ Ratings. 50 Years of Drafts.

I rated the performance of all NHL General Managers from 1970-2020, focusing on the drafted players only. All ratings and rankings are based on a unique scoring system awarding points for good picks and subtracting points for bad picks. All General Managers with a Ranking have made at least 85 picks in their career.

Note: Active GM's will usually have lower ratings because many of their picks are not yet established. Therefore Ratings/Rankings will change on a yearly basis.
