Alright, did the lottery for the prospect draft in an odd fashion via random.org, but it worked out I think. Here's the results, at my first glance (some calculation was required on my part to figure out who won what position):
1st: Beef Invictus
3rd: 2 Goalies 1 Cup
4th: Wu-Tang Clan
5th: Richmond Robins
6th: Last Place
7th: Adeptus Astartes
9th: Hollywood Cannon
11th: WV Icers
How does this sound to everyone? For those that don't remember, I took the contracted teams out of the equation, leaving us with 12 teams. Then, whatever rank you were in the standings with those contracted teams taken out of the equation is how many entries you had in the drawing. For instance, since I was last, or 12th, I got 12 entries in the lottery. Since JVR wast 1st he got 1 entry in the drawing. Good enough to help out those that didn't do well yet random enough to not encourage tanking.
If you don't like the results or the method that I chose then feel free to express yourself and if majority opinion is that I need to re-do it in some other fashion then it shall be done. However, note that this will be a serpentine draft so I really don't see how this is worse then any other method.
For those that don't feel like adding the "numbers" up themselves, Shoot, Center City Lumberjacks, A Tribe Called Soul, and Broad Street Brassknuckles are being contracted. All their prospects (players under 82 GP) will be added to the prospect pool (highlights including Kadri, Huberdeau, Couturier, Schneider, Scheifele, Zibanejad) and their pro players added to the pro draft (too many highlights to go over in parenthesis =P). Check out their rosters if you wanna see exactly how much the drafts will be enriched.
Popular opinion, in terms of how many teams to contract, was that most people either didn't care or wanted 4 teams contracted rather then 2. In fact, only one person that I can remember was clearly against contracting by 4 teams so, while I must apologize to that one person, it's something I felt had to be done.
Center City Lumberjacks was active towards the end of the season, but for a large part of the season he was inactive plus I needed a fourth team to contract as Shoot, A Tribe Called Soul, and Broad Street Brassknuckles were all extremely inactive all season long. So I apologize to CCL, but I unfortunately had to choose an extra team to contract.
