It's the most wonderful time of the year! You know, when there's next to no hockey news, and we spend a lot of time over-analyzing a bunch of players who can't legally drink in most, if not all of the cities that they play in.

We also took in reader rankings over the course of July to see how you all felt before reading our profiles, which has helped us create a consensus ranking of nearly 375 users that will be featured throughout the series and broken down in more detail when the rankings are done.
