I remember when the rules for the 2005 Draft Lottery were announced and what teams would have the best chance to get the #1 pick and select Sidney Crosby, a lot of people thought it was set up for the New York Rangers since at that time they hadn't made the Playoffs since 1997. People assumed that Bettman would want Crosby playing in one of the most popular American markets with the media and etc. Although as we all know the Rangers originally ended up with the 16th overall pick, so if the same system happens again let's hope Toronto ends up in a better position.
