As such, there pick is 4th at worst, which only yields a 10% chance at a #1 pick. Toronto, who has been playing better lately IMO, probably will see themselves finish around 23rd, which gives them a 0% chance of that #1 pick.

Also, when was the last time a player of Iginla's calibre was moved, without the teams hand being forced.
Correct me if I am wrong, but don't the bottom 10 teams get a chance to participate in the lottery? I thought that is how it works and that any of those teams, if they win the lottery can move up 4 places. So if Toronto finishes out of the bottom 5 teams they wouldn't have a chance to pick 1st overall but could move up 4 places in the draft. I think that is how it works anyway. Anyone know for sure?
