Hey all I was thinking about the draft and I think the best way to do it is a weighted lottery. So the Pens would get the most entries and the Bolts the least. You are drawn out of a big roller and you draft where your team was picked. You can fall or rise to any position. So in theory, the Pens could fall all the way to 30, and Tampa could get Crosby, but the chances are remote. I think this will work because of a few reasons: 1. Say the Pens fall all the way to 10th. They will still be able to draft a great player and they did get Malkin last year and Fleury the year before that. They aren't hurting. 2. When the cap is in place some teams will have to dump a lot of talent. Teams like the Pens will be able to sign these guys and make their teams better right now. They can get some good vets to help usher in the next gen talent. And in the end, isn't the point of this game, to win the cup? Not drafting the next great young kid? Does it really matter to Pens fans if they become a cup contender with Crosby or without? They are still contenders... 3. This gives every team a shot at the kid. The NHL can play up Crosby and start up the hype machine. Like what the NBA did for Lebron. Get all the fans excited about this kid and announce that every team will get a chance at him. This would go far in bringing some wayward fans back into the folds. Thoughts?
