From Sportsnet:

The NHL is borrowing a page from the NBA when it comes to the draft lottery.

The NHL announced Monday that all 14 teams that miss the playoffs, or the teams that hold the rights to the top 14 picks, will be eligible to win the No. 1 draft pick when the lottery is held on April 29.

Under the previous system, the five teams with the fewest points had the opportunity to win the top selection since no team could move up more than four spots.




Another step towards League "parity" or just another "gimmick"?

As long as we get #16 on this list, who cares ;) .  Really though, teams are getting rewarded way too much for not doing anything for 5+ years but collect top 5 picks.  Pens, Oilers, Hawks....

I like this team.
