One of the underlying themes of this second Waiver Draft we'll have  is the correction of some of the poor picks in the first Waiver Draft this year.  17 picks from the Week Nine edition of the draft earned less points since the start of Week Ten than the players they were dropped for.  Maybe there should have been a few more people passing on their picks, but that's just the added flavour of a hockey pool, I suppose.

The order I'm using here was what we saw after the weekly audit, so this is still likely to change a little bit.  A few teams that are in the PIM pool are changing up to add some more goonage, while there are still a few rookies getting moved into place in this draft.

Since the week ends on a Wednesday night, we might get the Waiver Draft started early, just to ensure we get the whole thing done.  An e-mail will likely be out before the middle of the week, just to make sure everyone knows what's going on.
