Unrelated: if the season is kaput... what happens at the draft? Does everyone get an equal number of ping-pong balls in the lotto machine / an equal shot at getting lottery picks? If we could get MacKinnon or Drouin that would be hilarious (and slightly awesome). The anti-Penguin pandemonium would be unprecedented. I for one will enjoy some serious post deletion and infracting of angry fans within the division. "It's rigged! I'm never watching hockey again. F all you !*&^!*&!"
I guess it would work just like last time. The more points and playoff appearances a teams had in the last 3 years, the smaller the chance for a good pick becomes. But technically, I think every team has a chance at 1st overall, even if it's only 1% or whatever unlike in a regular draft.
