That's a fantastic way to make sure the worst teams stay terrible.

All the draft stuff etc may be a nice consolation prize, but the losing atmosphere is horrific and counterproductive .

Then just make the draft bracket the bottom 4 or 8 teams, something to prevent intentional losing. Top draft seeding doesn't equal success either, the Oilers are a good example of that.

if you're bad, you're bad and are probably going to lose a lot of games.

Option 1 for me. In no circumstances should a team ever purposefully lose a game.
