I'm kind of torn about high-level players. On the one hand, the best way to get better is to play with/against people who are better than you. On the other hand it's kind of cheesy to see someone who can clearly outplay the entire other team by themselves. We had a couple of those guys in our C league last season, and it can be absolutely no fun to play against them.
[Redrafting the teams] also keeps the cheap shotting to a minimum. Most guys don't want to be idiots because chances are you're going to play with them next year. It also gets everyone familiar to every player. Most guys wouldn't slash, spear or hack a buddy.
Exactly. Our league kind of got away from that the last few seasons (allowed "protecting" players, allowed goalie captains, etc) and this summer there were multiple fights etc. Shaking up the teams regularly is really, really good for a league, I think.

At least in our league (which redrafts every season), you can request to play with someone else, but it's up to the captains to decide whether they honor that request or not. Usually they do, at least for relatives (we have a father/son pair who almost always play together).
