On the search a player feature, it is great to have, but I have Firefox installed and I would recommend using the search tool in Firefox to locate players. It's Much quicker, and it uses predictive typing. Predictive typing would be for example, if I was searching for 'Pujols' by the time I got to typing the letter J the search tool would have already located and highlighted Pujols.
Also, the Firefox search feature is low key, out of the way, and not intrusive like the Internet explorer search tool, which pops up in a box over the work window.
The search feature in the draft tool is good, it's just a matter if you want to wait for the page to reload every time you search.
