Look at it this way, last time 4 teams had the highest chance at 1st overall. Two of those teams fell out of the top 10 altogether. Whichever lottery system they use, we NEED a top 5 pick if there's a full lockout.
One thing you forgot is that Columbus owns the Rangers and Kings 2013 1st round picks as a result of them trading Rick Nash and Jeff Carter. Now the chances of the Blue Jackets winning the 1st overall pick with either one of those picks is very slim because the NHL would still go by the Rangers and Kings records from the 2011-2012 season. So chances are those picks end up betweeen 25th - 30th overall, however the fact the Blue Jackets would have 5 balls and not 3 balls.
