i understand how the lottery works in normal cricumstances, but these are not normal circumstances. If only one team has the possiblility of moving up then I don't think that's very equitable at all. In that case they might as well just use the regular system with last years order since it's doubtful anfone out of the top 5 would get the first pick over all anyway. They should be drawing for atleast the first 5 induvidual sposts, this way there's more room for movement and we don't just get a strict repeat of last years draft.
I don't see why they wouldn't just wait till after the 2005 season and run two drafts based on that year and with differant lotteries. Atleast that way you wouldn't have teams that had signifigantly improved themselves (ie phoenix) drawing better than a team like the rangers or the bruins (who really get screwed over in this.)
of course, the most equitable solution: PLAY A SEASON!
