Yes. I know it sounds strange, but I don't think anyone would expect a trade participant to veto their own deal.
I've never played in a league where you can vote on your own deal.
It's on ESPN, so the system allows all teams to vote.
Trade talk on IM is just that, talk. The owner should be able to change his mind until he makes the offer, if he felt pressure to go thru with it thats on him. Once its in the voting process the ship has sailed.
True. It seems Team A was forced into going through with the trade since Team B was on his case about how "he already agreed to it."
I think its a bad deal for him just getting the 1 earlier pick but the league isn't going to be thrown into turmoil by this draft pick deal. I'd let it play out just the way you have it set up.
As you said, I will just let this play out. If the trade stays at 5 vetoes, then it stands. If it hits 6, then no deal.
offseason trading of draft picks has been 1 of my keeper leagues best moves, although we've always had players involved with the picks. It really aids lesser teams with poorer rosters(especially abandoned teams with new owners) get a player or 2 they like for a pick exchange
We do the exact same thing. Several trades of that type have already taken place and it's a good deal for both teams.

As I mentioned earlier, the commish would be the only one who can veto a trade in the league's first year. Unfortunately, a few teams (ironically led by Team B) started chirping about how I could abuse my commish powers if I didn't allow teams to vote and so forth. Most other teams were ok with me determining trades (I never veto), but somehow the "allowing a vote" won 7-5, so now we have votes for trades.
BTW, what site did you derive the pick values from?
