Couple that with the fact that the Rangers may play 3-4 NHLers the rest of the way with a clueless coach, and they certainly have a chance.
Because I REALLY don't feel like doing anything of value this afternoon:

Standings (PTs-Ws)	Draft Order
CAR (61)		PIT
PIT (65)		CAR
CLB (69)		FLA
FLA (70)		CLB
BUF (72)		BUF

ATL (54)		CLB
CLB (57)		ATL
FLA (60)		FLA
TB  (69-27)		PHI via TB
PIT (69-28)		PIT

NYI (52)		ATL
TB  (59)		OTT via NYI
ATL (60)		TB
FLA (66-22)		FLA
ANA (66-25)		ANA

ATL (39)		NYI
TB  (54)		ATL
NYI (58)		MIN (expansion team)
NSH (70)		CLB (expansion team)
BOS (73)		NYI
I am reasonably sure that the lottery worked like this:
In 2003, Florida (#4) wins the lottery and moves up to #1, then deals the pick to Pittsburgh and takes the #3 spot.
In 2002, I believe Columbus (#2) won the lottery.
In 2001, Atlanta (#3) won the lottery.
In 2000, I don't remember what happened. I believe the Isles (#3) won the lottery and later dealt for TB's #5 pick, but I'm not sure.
