Well....technically any team that does not make the playoffs can win the lottery.
But as for a top 5 pick?
I think the Kings could get another top 5 pick if they do not significantly improve.....
Do not forget that the Islanders just drafted Tavares and DeHaan (even though DeHaan probably will not make the team this year).....but Tavares will probably improve the team significantly.....especially playing with Okposo and Bailey.
Tampa Bay just got a franchise defenseman (Hedman) to go along with their franchise center (Stamkos).....not to mention they still have Lecavalier and St Louis.
Atlanta could improve significantly if Kane somehow makes the team and finds himself alongside of Kovalchuk....add in Bogosian and they could be a threat to make the playoffs in the east.
So standing pat is not an advantage for the Kings.
