Read the paragraph about "division" winners.
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?
But the current draft system rewards the worst losers most. Heck, you don't even have to try - in fact, you're encouraged NOT to try - if you want to pick some surefire superstar.
You say fans are supposed to accept losing on the ice but not "losing" in the draft order?
