I know its not right to take advantage of someone in distress.

On the other hand....

Me not winning this thing will cause me distress. So by winning, I'm practically a hero!

In all your greatness I feel it's important that you refer to yourself in the 3rd person. Great people do great things.

I think it would be even better if he replaced a third-person pronoun with a first person objective pronoun, therefore:

The reason why we made this rule was because some people were getting upset that many prospects were being taken in the regular draft, even if they aren't going to play in the NHL that year. This rule addresses that, as the prospects who don't play in the NHL will be put into the prospect draft (NOT the regular draft). This strengthens the prospect pick value every season.

If you use a keeper on that "prospect", then this rule is completely voided.


Now, as I said, we can always re-do, deny, or completely ignore this rule if people like. If it is too complicated, we can just dump the whole rule all together.

Unless you're saying he would be ineligible for the following main draft.
This is what I am trying to say. He would be ineligible to be taken in the main draft the following year. Hence why the prospect pick(s) would become even more valuable.

All in all, I'm just trying to find a medium for both sides of the argument.

Anyways, this thread is coming up to 1,000 posts, so I'll be making a new thread shortly.
