Manly are welcome to choose a conservative minimal trade strategy though if they wish.Sorry Manly,feel the same way as Eudebrito.
But your additions are awesome and you chose well.
There were two prizes described at the start
1) The best team at the end. Teams like the storm and other elite teams can conceivably win this by just not losing any key assets and tinkering around the edges.
2) Most improved team. Anyone can win this. But it is easier for a lower ranked team to improved usually - it takes many trades and transactions.
When I first invented the rules 8 years ago toyed with the idea of only having a most improved award - or making that the main award -as I figured the goal should be to make as many improvements as possible.
However in cricket general manager you have teams like Australia and it is hard for them to grow so I put in the second "best team" award so the elite teams can compete with each other and have more modest maintenance and growth aspirations.
Some extra context for the awards.
