I thought we drafted player for their career value up until when they were drafted. If I knew a player could suddenly boost their career value in the middle of the playoffs I would certainly gone for more modern players.

Edit: No its not horrible as this is not a million dollar lottery Im talking about but a low risk 1000 dollar lottery with several small prices.
