Changes to the draft lottery system

I like the new system but I also understand why Murray is really sore about it. But still if things are going their way the sabers could end up with the top picks.

mixed emotions about this, i like that it reduces tanking but i dont like that the worst teams dont get the top picks. like in the nba how it never goes to the bucks or 76ers and it usually goes to a popular team like the cavs or bulls.i blame the oilers and cavs for this. (sorry for mixing sports, it just helps prove my point.)

Doesn't really matter much but the % are leveled out to where they should be.

i propose giving the 1st. pick to the team that just missed out on the playoffs. (#17) then counting down from there. 18-19-20-etc...to 30 then picking back up at #16 to champs.

this would totally stop the tanking issues and promote the end of year games to actually mean something for winning.

this 17th place team would just miss out on revenue of playoffs...but the perk would be #1 overall.

now..the argument would begin that a team that has the opportunity to take the 8th seed or tank the game for the pick could come up...but the statistical opportunity would have to fall in place just right.

this would never happen...because the bottom teams would have a fit over getting screwed. but my response is then dont suck!

rewards for failure just bugs me. its like a field goal. "you tried...and came...kinda close..heres some feel good points" :w00t:

Terrible idea. Rich get richer and porter get poorer. Parity is a great thing in sports special when it comes to watching playoff hockey stuff like this would kill the NHL. Unless your goal is to go back to just the original 6.

Yea this isn't a good idea. Why should you be rewarded for just missing the playoffs? Plus, there actually might be a bigger incentive just to miss the playoffs than make it! Thus, if you're in a battle for the last spot with like 2 other teams, all of them might try and tank to get that 17th place, which wouldn't make for entertaining hockey at all.

There was an interesting idea floating around a while back to just alternate which team gets the top pick each year. I still don't know how I feel about it, but considering the wings haven't had any top ten picks in like 100 years, our cupboards would have been quite a bit more stocked had this been the set up.

Actually thinking on it a bit more I really like this idea. Depending on how the numbers are arranged, each team could get a top ten pick every three years, regardless of how they perform. I think this would also increase the amount of trading as well, because a team with a solid core, already up against the cap could get a top ten pick and not have any room for the player they draft.
