I'm not necessarily for a 58-game season, I'm just presenting another option. But I find what you are saying to be benefited by a 58-game season. Franchises that are trading players around like a stack of trading cards would soon be discouraged to do so and the "player movement" would stabilize. As to the player deadline, I don't understand how changing it is a big issue.
