reverse order from the season ending standings. No one should be "rewarded" for an early playoff exit.

Example, Nashville gets the top seed in the league and gets bounced in the 1st round, they do not deserve the 17th, 18th, 19th or 20th pick, they should still get the 28th pick based on their regular season finish.

This is foolish to think about rewarding teams that get bounced early.

NOT EVERYONE WINS.

SOMETIMES PEOPLE LOSE AND THAT'S OK.

geez, what kind of culture are we creating?

I don't necessarily think this is some kind of PC measure to make teams feel better about losing. If anything, I'm surprised it hasn't been set up this way already. The Cup finals teams should be 29 and 30. Teams bounced out of the playoffs first ought to be next on the draft list after the 14 teams who didn't qualify.

It's not like a playoff team who had a great regular season gets into the playoffs and says "Gee fellas, we'd better cool off now, lest we get a worse draft pick." Come on now...
