What I think is the best part of this suggestion is that Washington-Ovechkin, Pittsburgh-Fleury, Columbus-Nash, and Atlanta-Kovalchuk...would all have a ball taken away for getting the first pick. Allowing WSH in particular to get Crosby would blow ass.
The advantage in having four balls as opposed to three is so slight that it is hardly an advantage at all. The same can be said in respect to four chances as opposed to one. All it takes is one chance. The draft has always been geared to give the worse teams a shot at the best players. To give teams that made the playoffs the last three years any shot at all is a travesty.
I'm sure all the fans of those teams that made the playoffs would DISAGREE
