I like the idea of an eastern and western conference draft pool. With regards to the contract years, I think 24 years with the initial draft (with a max of 3 to any player) and one additional year after every season. Starting with the second draft, you choose a 1, 2, or 3 year contract for your drafted players. I think the option to start a player at his 1st, 2nd, or 3rd season is good and when a player has played his last season in the database, he goes back to the draft pool. What about anti-tanking and vetoing trade rules?
