Well, since there was no season, there can't be a traditional draft order. Thus, the NHL would be hashing how to order the 2005 draft after the CBA is settled. The most popular method seems to be a weighted lottery, with the number of lottery balls determined by a team's recent playoff history. Most scenarios have the Flyers having about a 1 out of 60 shot at Crosby. So, it is unlikely but not statistically insignificant.
