The prospect draft wont really do much to help the worst team next season, maybe a few seasons down the road, but not the next. Which is why they should have the first pick in the regular draft so they can get that immediate help.

The lottery should be for the prospect draft, in my opinion. But yes, polls and votes will decide.

I try to run a fair league so most decisions will be run by the league members first.

Draft results have been restored by customer support (we get priority when it comes to customer support due to the Premium league status). So if you all are curious about how the draft went in retrospect then feel free to take a look. I also posted a new poll for "Best Draft Steal". Choices are as follows:

Evgeni Malkin by JVR in Rd 1 Pick 9
Claude Giroux by A Tribe Called Soul Rd 2 Pick 20
Ilya Kovalchuk by Last Place Rd 3 Pick 42
Phil Kessel by JVR21 Rd 5 Pick 73
Jamie Benn by A Tribe Called Soul Rd 6 Pick 84
Jason Spezza by JVR21 Rd 6 Pick 88
Jordan Eberle by *Unknown* Rd 8 Pick 115
Jody Shelley by Bettman (picked for an inactive manager) Rd 26 Pick 413

How the hell did we all let Spezza drop to round 6? Are we stupid?

I flat out refused to draft Kessel. I was still angry at him from last season.

I think Tyler Seguin was a steal for me considering my team absolutely blows

I wonder if my losing streak will continue and I will actually be out of the playoffs. That would be ridiculous considering the hot start I had.

You were in sole possession of second place and only 1 game behind me at that point.

I got a boatload of injuries and I don't think I've been the same since.

I'm the Minnesota Wild of our league; great start, then TURBLE

JVR21 gets first place and his prize is...wait for it...50 dollars! As soon as he sends me his e-mail address that is (I'll be paying through PayPal).

Also, yes, I'm serious. I know I never announced a prize for 1st place, but I decided on it just now that I should. Leagues with prizes tend to be the most competitive and active leagues, right? So I'll hand out prizes. Winner of the regular season gets 50, champion of the playoffs gets 75. Now go ahead and battle it out for that 75 you playoff contenders!

So, to any of you who intend to quit this league or end up being lazy and inactive, here's a couple of things to consider.

1) This is a Premium Fantrax league, with a life-time membership, at no cost to any of you, ever.

2) Winner of the regular season receives a monetary reward as does the playoff champion.

So now there's even more incentive on top of the fun-ness of the league!

Just a thought. If I won the regular season or playoffs, hypothetically, would you all have to pay me money.

God damn it I want the free 50! Good job by JVR though.. I'm coming for that 75!

Thanks for the rewards system too, pretty cool you would do that. Maybe next year we can get all the people to put money into the pot. That would definitely keep people coming back if they have their money invested for a bigger prize! Just an idea.

If everyone would be up for that I'd definitely do it.

I was too busy free falling down the standings to win anything.

Whawhawhaaaaat?! I'd feel bad taking money from you when you're already paying for the league, man.

I'm not sure how to do fancy screenshots and what not, but I can confirm that he did send me 50 bucks. Best commissioner ever? I think yes.

That is pretty awesome. We should all put money in next year so he doesn't have to do it since he already paid for everything.

Also if everyone isn't on board with it, then only reward the people who put money into the league. If none of the people who put money into the pool win, then carry the pool over to the next year. Or you can always figure something out.
