I made the observation that most posters who think that players should just fall into line wouldn't want a "draft and tell you where you will ply your trade from 16-20" before you are "drafted" into your adult job.
I don't know what you do for a living but how would you like to be treated that way?
Does Forsberg have the option to seek out and play for a different team in a different league? Please dont insult people by comparing a junior hockey player to slaves, who were hunted down with dogs and killed or maimed in horrific fashion for leaving their masters.
Ridiculous analogy is embarrassing.
So make trades? Trade what for what exactly? Trade your poor vets for more poor vets? Teams that are snubbed by top talent are usually poor to begin with, and if they cant build through the draft, then how are you supposed to get better?
Are the other gm's around the league morons prone to making poor deals? They are going to take your garbage in return for gems?
Fact is PG is the least desirable location in the entire league to play. Worst travel, small, stinky town with multiple pulp mills isolated way up north with no other big city for hundreds of miles in every direction.
Your understanding of the situation is lacking. Big time.
