TBH, the seeming "randomness" of it all makes me enjoy the experience a little more. In the real world, prospect growth really can be almost random.

Can you imagine any sim engine that would have predicted that could have predicted a few years ago that Tim Thomas would grow into an elite goalie and Steve Mason would be a backup? Or that Hedman would seem so "meh" after three years in the league? Real GMs have to face that kind of randomness, and I kind of prefer that experience to one that can be easily gamed.
