It's not like the NFL. Only the last four slots (27-30) are reserved for playoff teams (the four conference finalists). Washington and the other non-CF playing division winners go next (~23-26) based upon record. Because of that, the Caps are picking 26 since they are automatically the team with the best record that isn't one of the last four teams.

Hope that helps.
