This idea would kill small-market teams that finish near the bottom of the standings as well because their fans wouldn't even have a high pick to look forward to.
Bruins got lucky with Seguin while they were a great team, and they ended up with Rask on a really good trade. See how that all worked itself out.

Now let's say they did have the #1 next year? They will not have #1 again for 30 years.

I think it's a brilliant idea. You get your moments and the rest is built around making great moves. It might actually get teams to start making hard moves while trading instead of this meek bullcrap going on now.

A question for you...... What if the Habs have the first pick next year?
