Is it just our league or the draft is so bad this season everywhere?

I scouted potential of all 16 years old players with 88, and 6 of them has 88-106, which means max.-1 (94) or max (100). That's ok, everything normal for now. But when I scouted quality of that 6 players with 90, not even a single player has quality 90 or more! Not even one! That means that maximum that I can get on this draft is player with 90+ quality and max.-2 potential, which is so bad, because I will probably choose first.

For example, last season there was 5 players with Q95+/Pmax-1.

So is it just bad bug in our league or did anything change about draft this season?

Same in my league, scouted 16 players so far only 1 player was 95+ quality.

I scouted also in my B team now - even worse. Only 4 16 years old players with potential 88-106, and also not even one of them with quality 90 or more.

What is that? I need explanation please, because something clearly changed a lot.

I've scouted seven players in my league's draft class, and five of them are Q90+.

Nothing out of the ordinary there.

You took the other way to scout players so for now it doesn't mean anything, if you know what I mean. There may be a lot of players on my draft who has Q90+, but I first scouted potential and everyone who has potential max.-1 or max, has quality under 90. So when you will scout the potential of this five, and all the other players who has Q90+, then you (and we) will know exactly if everything is the same as it was.

But anyway thanks for the response, because it's a "big problem" for me and it seems that there won't be any answer from people who are actually compatible to give answers of that sort.

Don't see your problem..... do you want to have a guarantee to find one or more Q90+/maxpot youth players in the draft? There's a random factor included, what makes the draft system more realistic, as there are strong and weak draft years in real life too.

That's true, I don't expect to find 10 players Q90+/Pmax every season, even if there is no one as good, it's ok. But I scouted in two different leagues, and there is no 16 years old players with quality 90+ and potential at least max.-2! Not Q90+/Pmax, but Q90+/Pmax-2!

To compare with last season draft, when in both leagues were 5 players with Q95+/Pmax-1 and also no one with Q90+/Pmax - which I agree is not a problem, because you can't expect Crosby on every season draft, but also you can't expect that on the whole draft, there are only players who will play AHL and ECHL their whole career .

For the amount of time and resources (scout picks) required to get a good player in the draft, the award is often lacklustre, this is of course amplified by your draft position. I think for the most part you're better off investing that time and resources into your youth school players but the draft is a fun aspect of the game. I consider myself pretty good (or maybe its just lucky) with the draft but more often than not the players I boost (the best players in my youth school) are not the drafted players.

the draft is being tweaked a little almost every season. main factor affecting the harvest is the team activity in the draft in the league. otherwise the few active teams would just split those top quality players every season.

In other words, the more non-manager teams in a league, the worse draft this league has?

Yes, basically, but just to a point.
