If we can't find anyone to take the open slots, those players will go into the general draft.

I'm not sure I like this idea. I think if there is contraction we should hold a separate draft.

Draft picks have been traded based on the understanding that the draft would have players from the FA list and the NHL Entry Draft.

We should discuss this.

Ideally though, I would prefer to not deal with contraction. And I think we should all make an effort to find GMs (which should not be all that hard??!).

Sure, I hope we don't have a dispersal, but having two drafts isn't ideal either. How do we determine a dispersal draft (DD) order? It doesn't seem right that the bottom should get a top player on top of a top pick. Nor does it make sense to reverse the order for the DD.

Lumping it all into one draft FA, Entry, and dispersal draft is fairest to all. Take what suits your current situation and move on.

If you care about parity I think it very much makes sense. If you look at the bottom-feeding teams in this league many of them are in dire condition due to years of mismanagement - often by GMs who are no longer with us.

Okay, I think we should have a dispersal draft. we try and model this after the NHL, that's what they'd do in that situation.

The only problem with that is that draft picks are dealt knowing the draft / UFA class is weak. Injecting top talent into a draft all of a sudden is not at all equitable.

if we are going with a single draft system then contraction should be avoided. That's fine, too.

My thoughts exactly. I traded all my picks based on my feeling that this year's draft litter was an extremely weak one. With players from three possible teams in the mix, it is a substantially different kettle of fish sticks.

Thus, I argue for a separate draft with a non-weighted lottery so first pick is wide open.

I'm fine with a separate contraction draft, but we ought to weight it to give bad teams better odds. That way people who traded away their picks get their fair shot, but we will try to help out the sad sacks a bit.

It's also the closest to how things would have worked out had we known about the draft at the start of the year.

If there is contraction, what happens to the future draft picks of contracted teams, some of which are surely floating around - perhaps on my roster.

The draft will be offline, like always. If you are away once we start, leave a list.

We need to figure out new GM's or contraction first anyway.
