Definitely needs to be at least talked about before people start making concrete plans on keepers for next year.
So are you guys thinking about some kind of expansion draft? How's that going to work?
I'm thinking that there should be some kind of ranking system that each of the existing owners can use on his players... two untouchables, two "A" keepers, and two "B" keepers. The new owners put all of the "A" keepers in a hat and draw two each, and all the "B" keepers in a hat and draw three each (re-drawing once if they want to for a duplicate position).
Obviously, the teams who lose their "A" keepers in the expansion draft have the first picks in the real draft, then the teams who lost their "B" keepers, then the expansion teams, and then the rest of the league.
I dunno... just thinking this through. But yes, you definitely would need to know what's going to happen, so you know how likely you are to lose one of the studs on your team, if you are able to protect any of them 100% against the expansion, and what you'd be able to do to replace any of them if they are taken.
