The farther you get from the lost year, the less relevant the criteria used. Either base a weighted system on last years results or throw thirty balls in a bin and pick them one by one. But of course this is the NHL.
The Oilers have the same chance as the Habs because of their multiple first overall picks the last 3 seasons.
