Well yeah.  The Flame Wars IV tendency to kill off little-known

Well, I dunno about "officially".  I don't think anyone would say that
someone "isn't really an LNHer" just because they haven't been added
to the roster.

But, yes, the roster - and the LNH info-documents in general - are in
sore need of updating.  Hmmmmmm, sounds like a project...
