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"
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.
