So Arizona finally got sanctioned for the illegal scouting and testing of draft eligible players. They forfeit their 2020 2nd rounder and their 2021 1st rounder. I am wondering who then gets these picks? Honestly they should be awarded to us for being the worst team, but I'm guessing they will just do a new lottery or something to see who gets these. Will be interesting.

They get offered to each teams from the bottom up, only being able to choose one, Detroit will choose their 2021 1st rounder and then Ottawa takes the 2020 2nd.

...and in other news, ocean front property value in Nebraska is at all time high! www.nebraskaoceanfront.com :lol:

I guess we would move up one spot with the Caps 2nd round pick this year, otherwise it won't affect our position. 

 32-45-52?

No, the only round impacted by the elimination of teams is the 1st round. Each subsequent round is sorted by where the team finished in the regular season.  We have the #32, #45 and #58 in the 2nd round.

No one gets those picks. The league can and does add compensatory picks and subtracts sanctioned draft picks.

There will only be 31 picks in the first round of the 2021 draft. If Arizona is a lottery team, that just increases the odds for everyone else in the draft lottery.

Right. 31 teams 31 picks. Who gets Arizonas forfeited pick is what im asking.

Ah, my bad, I forgot about expansion. So then 32 teams 32 picks. Would like to see a lottery for Arizona's pick that's not rigged for a convenient big market team....

Actually, the 1st round will still have 31 picks because Arizona is giving up theirs.

no one

everyone moves up a spot, pre-draft lottery odds get adjusted and one sad little boy doesn't get drafted. 

What are you talking about. Picks don't just disappear. Do the math, what your suggesting would be unfair to every team picking ahead of Arizona in the first round that year.

They still pick in the same spot no? 

Also, you're right. The NHL would never do anything unfair come draft time...........

It would be more fair than compensatory picks which pushes every team that follows down one spot. And this happens sometimes too.

It's not that hard. If the Coyotes would have picked 10th, than teams 1-9 still pick in the same spot. Their draft order is unaffected. The 11th place team now picks 10th, the 12th place team now picks 11th and so on. It's not really unfair to anyone. Picks 1-9 are still getting better players than teams 10-31, presumably.

But since the draft order for 2021 hasn't been determined yet, then most likely Arizona just won't have a ball in the hopper if they don't make the playoffs. And the teams who finish better than them will just move up one spot in the draft if they do make the playoffs.

Giving the pick to another team would be WAY more unfair.

I really dont get how league can just dissapear picks. So a ton of teams just move up now? Thats fukt

But if Detroit has the first pick in the second round(very likely) that becomes another first round pick for us. Win!
