Also I'm pretty sure there is even a better chance lately in the last few years.
It's 50/50...for every Penguins or Black Hawks team who are terrible for 5 years drafting high works for them there is a Blue Jackets or Islanders which drafting high didn't work. The point is who wants to scrap on the bottom of the NHL for 5 years for 50% chance of it benefitting them?
