I was about to ask how Pittsburg ended up with three balls, having drafted Fleury 1st overall two seasons earlier (which should have put them in the "2 ball" camp)... but a quick google brought me back to HF where this question has already been answered... they traded up from 3 to 1 to get Fleury, so since they had spent assets they "didn't have" the first overall in the view of the NHL.
Why would we have 2 balls? Last time they removed a ball for each year a team made the playoffs or was given the 1st overall. Hall, RNH, and Yakupov should give us only one ball.
