I guarantee you'd change your tune the first time a team like Chicago or Pittsburgh won the cup and a top 5 pick in the same year.
Jumping into this discussion a bit late but as far as the draft goes... I really think that each and every team in the league should have a shot at the number one draft pick no matter if they're dead last or won the Cup. Maybe not an equal chance it could be weighted by the standings, but I think the first round could totally be lottery style with the remaining rounds established by regular season standings. Would really create some fierce competition no matter what time year especially if the draft class is deep.
