I agree the ball thing kind of sucks for teams that aren't bad but not good.

BTW average points for each team over the past 4 years

Boston Bruins - 103 points
New York Rangers - 96 points
New York Islanders - 73 points
Buffalo Sabres - 94 points
New Jersey Devils - 98 points
Philadelphia Flyers -99 points
Pittsburgh Penguins - 104 points
Montreal Canadiens -89 points
Ottawa Senators - 86 points
Toronto Maple Leafs -80 points
Carolina Hurricanes -88 points
Florida Panthers - 84 points
Tampa Bay Lightning - 83 points
Washington Capitals - 107 points
Winnipeg Jets - 81 points

Chicago Blackhawks - 104 points
Columbus Blue Jackets - 79 points
Detroit Red Wings - 105 points
Nashville Predators - 98 points
St. Louis Blues - 95 points
Calgary Flames - 93 points
Colorado Avalanche - 80 points
Edmonton Oilers - 71 points
Minnesota Wild - 85 points
Vancouver Canucks - 108 points
Anaheim Ducks - 90 points
Dallas Stars - 89 points
Los Angeles Kings - 93 points
Phoenix Coyotes - 96 points
San Jose Sharks - 108 points

Edmonton really does suck as does the New York Islanders

If based off of averages

Edmonton Oilers
New York Islanders
Columbus Blue Jackets
Toronto Maple Leafs*
Colorado Avalanche*
Winnipeg Jets
Tampa Bay Lightning
Florida Panthers
Minnesota Wild
Ottawa Senators
Carolina Hurricanes
Montreal Canadians*
Dallas Stars*
Anaheim Ducks
Los Angeles Kings
Calgary Flames*
Buffalo Sabres
St. Louis Blues
Phoenix Coyotes*
New York Rangers*
Nashville Predators*
New Jersey Devils*
Philadelphia Flyers
Boston Bruins
Pittsburgh Penguins
Chicago Blackhawks
Detroit Red Wings
Washington Capitals
Vancouver Canucks
San Jose Sharks

Here's a weird idea and complicated idea but fun nonetheless:

Top 10 gets three balls
Middle 10 get two balls
Bottom 10 gets one ball

Now, if you picked in 1st overall since 2009 (I went 4 years ago back to the 2008-2009 season), you lose a ball. So New York Islanders loses one, Edmonton losses three (you can't have zero, so they'll have one). If you won the Stanley Cup in those four years, you lose one ball. So Pittsburgh, Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston lose 1. If you haven't picked in the top 10 in those four seasons, you gain one ball. Calgary, Nashville, Chicago, Detroit, Washington, Vancouver, Buffalo, San Jose, St. Louis, and Pittsburgh all gain a ball.

So breaking it down further

Edmonton Oilers - 1 ball
New York Islanders - 2 balls
Columbus Blue Jackets - 3 balls
Toronto Maple Leafs* - 3 balls
Colorado Avalanche* - 3 balls
Winnipeg Jets - 3 balls
Tampa Bay Lightning - 3 balls
Florida Panthers - 3 balls
Minnesota Wild - 3 balls
Ottawa Senators - 3 balls

Carolina Hurricanes - 2 balls
Montreal Canadians* - 2 balls
Dallas Stars*- 2 balls
Anaheim Ducks- 2 balls
Los Angeles Kings- 1 balls
Calgary Flames*- 3 balls
Buffalo Sabres- 3 balls
St. Louis Blues - 3 balls
Phoenix Coyotes* - 2 balls
New York Rangers* - 2 balls

Nashville Predators* - 2 balls
New Jersey Devils* - 1 balls
Philadelphia Flyers - 1 balls
Boston Bruins - 1 balls
Pittsburgh Penguins - 1 balls
Chicago Blackhawks - 1 balls
Detroit Red Wings - 2 balls
Washington Capitals - 2 balls
Vancouver Canucks - 2 balls
San Jose Sharks - 2 balls

It can get a lot more complicated than that but here's my reasoning on those three criteria;

1 - 1st overall pick is like the Stanley Cup for losers. That's the best player in the draft and if you're lucky to draft them, you should be building around your franchise

2 - Stanley Cup winner. You achieved the ultimate goal and built your organization.

3. Top 10 - You don't suck bad enough to pick in the top 10 and haven't won anything either. You should be rewarded.

Personally this isn't bad:

Pick 1: Vancouver Canucks
Pick 2: Detroit Red Wings
Pick 3: Washington Capitals
Pick 4: Buffalo Sabres
Pick 5: Minnesota Wild
Pick 6: Boston Bruins
Pick 7: Toronto Maple Leafs
Pick 8: Ottawa Senators
Pick 9: New York Islanders
Pick 10: Dallas Stars
Pick 11: Winnipeg Jets
Pick 12: Columbus Blue Jackets
Pick 13: Montreal Canadians
Pick 14: Carolina Hurricanes
Pick 15: Calgary Flames
Pick 16: Colorado Avalanche
Pick 17: Florida Panthers
Pick 18: Tampa Bay Lightning
Pick 19: New York Rangers
Pick 20: Phoenix Coyotes
Pick 21: Anaheim Ducks
Pick 22: St. Louis Blues
Pick 23: San Jose Sharks
Pick 24: Edmonton Oilers
Pick 25: Pittsburgh Penguins
Pick 26: Nashville Predators
Pick 27: Chicago Blackhawks
Pick 28: New Jersey Devils
Pick 29: Philadelphia Flyers
Pick 30: Los Angeles Kings
