The only team here that I could have seen changing is Florida but still not likely. A somewhat fairway would be meshing the 2000-2005 standings and maybe to make things even more fair add the final payrolls at the end of the 2003/2004 season. Then hold a lottery. And because of the factor that there wasn't actually a season, the lottery should be slightly favoured with a 6% chance going to the worst and about 1% chance going to the strongest. Just my opinion...
think of the Atlanta Braves in baseball ...they went from worst to first in one season after finishing near the bottom for a few years ...there is no reason to doubt that Atlanta, or NYR, or Pitt, or Was couldnt do the same, it takes a short while for top players to develop and turn a team around ...think of Colorodo, and Ottawa.
