I must add again, that more than half of the teams left I can't see anyone taking, like Nashville or Colombus. They just don't have the scoring nor defense to keep up with the Oilers, Pens, or Sabres, etc.
Without restrictions in place for SH% and D Rating and Goalies, I think this league will have a hard time filling up.
There's only three or four more teams left that could compete. The rest can't, however much I love this theme.
Maybe allow two of the same franchise? Alter the D rating and SH% (even then most of the teams can't compete).
Or start combining regions, like Florida teams. Who will draft the Coyotes? They don't have one 100+ player in their history; no 20+ SH% scorer. They would just get crushed.
Food for thought.
