Just thought I'd show the 2005 lottery rules and the odds if they implemented it again in the event of another frieken missed season


1) Missed the playoffs in each of the previous 3 seasons.
2) Didn't have the 1st overall selection over the last 4 drafts.

If you met both criteria, you got 3 balls.
If you made the playoffs only once OR had the 1st overall only once, you got 2 balls.
If you had two or more of any combination of those two (playoff appearances or 1st overalls), then you only got 1 ball.

If implemented again:

3 Balls: Calgary Flames, Carolina Hurricanes, Winnipeg Jets, Toronto Maple Leafs, Columbus Blue Jackets, Dallas Stars, Minnesota Wild

2 Balls: New York Islanders, Tampa Bay Lightning, Florida Panthers, Colorado Avalanche, Anaheim Ducks, St. Louis Blues

1 Ball: Nashville Predators, Phoenix Coyotes, New Jersey Devils, Ottawa Senators, Chicago Blackhawks, San Jose Sharks, Philadelphia Flyers, Buffalo Sabres, Edmonton Oilers, Vancouver Canucks, Pittsburgh Penguins, Washington Capitals, Montreal Canadiens, Los Angeles Kings, Boston Bruins, Detroit Red Wings, New York Rangers
