That works for me too. There's one other reason I can think of in which I wouldn't like the 16-30 picks all up for grabs and that is a very good team getting blasted by injuries in the playoffs and just wiping out. Take us for example last season--not saying that New Jersey wasn't going to win anyway but as soon as Jagr went down and with Henrik not altogether recovered we were sitting ducks. One could see where Detroit is coming from--they always have some kind of plan for the finals but they are older and if they got bounced early--maybe because of a lot of injuries they'd be picking maybe 8-10 slots earlier than where their regular season record would have them. The four finalists idea is okay--the rest should stay the same.
