If it's true, if we did get #1, wouldn't you think the Flyers would pick Jones, no questions asked?
Depends on how the lottery is.. But here's how it was in 2005 :
Teams were assigned 1 to 3 balls based on their playoff appearances and first overall draft picks from the past three years.
Each team started with 3 balls and lost one for each of the playoff appearances or first overall draft picks with a minimum number of balls being 1.
So here would be the 2012 lottery numbers
And if the flyers were to get it, I'd prefer if they traded down to number 2 to get Jones plus whatever they can get since Mackinnon will more than likely go first overall
