Read several threads on the topic but still have one question for discussion/opinions. We're expanding next season and have most of the nuts and bolts covered. Each franchise will be keeping either 7 or 8 players, within our contract/retention rules. We then have two schools of thought on how to proceed. EITHER:
1. New franchise may select one player from each franchise, followed by a round of existing franchises "recalling" an exposed player (pursuant to existing contract/retention rules), followed by another round of picks, lather, rinse, repeat as needed.
2. New franchise may select one player from ANY franchise. Said franchise may then "recall" an exposed player, followed by another draft pick, lather, rinse, repeat as needed.
IMHO there isn't THAT much difference but one of my "better" owners feels #1 damages existing (good/solid/deep) franchises less than #2. I don't see it.
