Depends how many years they do the ball counting for. In 2005 it was you start off with 3 balls and if you make the playoffs in any of the last 3 years or pick first in the last 4 years you lose 1 ball for each time that happens, and you can lose up to 2 balls.
Edmonton for instance would lose 2 balls for picking first at least 2 times(they can't lose all 3 balls for picking first 3 times), while a team like Detroit would lose 2 balls for making the playoffs twice(they can't lose all 3 balls for making the playoffs every year).
I believe their would be a few teams with 3 balls like Toronto and Columbus(Calgary, Dallas, Minnesota, Winnipeg and Carolina all haven't made the playoff in the past 3 years as well). The Islanders on the other hand would have 2 balls due to drafting Tavares(although they missed the playoffs the past 3 years as well).
