As there is now a 60 pt limit, a drive towards parity, a limit on contracted players without paying a penalty and effectively a completely different system, I dont see what relevance the previous 2 seasons have.
With a new system in place, surely that slate needs to be wiped clean and start all over again?
You're forgetting that the entire contract system is based on performances over past seasons. That's how we've rated players, and thats the foundation of the entire system.
With each team facing the same salary cap and dealing with players ranked on past success, it's only fair for teams to draft players based on team success. It's the way it's done in most professional sports, where the finish of a team one season determines the draft pick the next season. That way the lesser teams tend to end up getting the better players in the draft.
