OK OK, did not look up whether LA had their pick.
My point was that one of the strong contenders could just as easily get the pick, defeating the purpose of the draft as a mechanism for strengthening the weak teams.
League got lucky last time (or did they? ) when Pittsburg got Crosby.
If it happens again, it should not be possible for an already strong team to be drafting top 10.
(outside of trades)
