It is completely unfair to teams, like the Habs for example, or Carolina, that work hard to improve, and never have a chance at the number one. Even this past draft, our chances of winning the lottery were not that great.

As it is, the draft rewards bad management, year after year, and that is wrong.
Besides Edmonton and Pittsburgh how many teams have been that bad for more than a year or two? Maybe it would be better to penalize a team like Edmonton with a five drafting place penalty after picking 1st twice in a row.

I don't mind teams moving up or down a couple of places but I don't like the sound of this one bit.

The only thing worse then letting idiots own and run sports franchises is letting idiots who don't own sport franchises run sport franchises.
