Sometimes, sure.

I think in the 6 seasons I simmed (yrs. 1-2, x 3) the following teams won the cup: LA, Montreal, Chicago, Flyers, and Vancouver. (I don't remember the 6th--it might have been one of the above). Of those, only Montreal is really a stretch, and that came in Yr. 2 of one of the seasons.

Plus, all of those were without the trades made in this league.

Mostly, though, this way gives an incentive to play as one of the bottom 15 teams in the league, to actually try to construct a roster that will be competitive 5 years from now, etc.

There are plenty of leagues that aim to play every game--which is fine, but you're limited to basically 2 seasons at that point. The mix here is what makes this league unique, and, at least to me, the most fun.
