Adding 10 more to that would be.... just horrible. With the discrepancy between the have and havenots in this league.... I see no better way to widen that gap even further than by having a phenom land on a team that had a down year as opposed to a team that flat out sucks.
This happens already in our league. Last year the first six picks were all made by teams holding another team's pick. The year before 3 through 8 were the same. In 2010 it was 2nd and 3rd. If we're going to deviate from the NHL on this, the argument has to be sound, and history contradicts yours I think.
