Considering the Pens won a cup with Crosby, I wouldn't feel bad about a lockout netting us a (hopefully) 1, 2, or 3 overall pick.
If the league uses the same method as last time, the Leafs have a ~6% chance of getting the first overall pick. If they finish 5th last like last season, I believe it's something like ~8% chance at first overall.
