Also, the oilers currently have the second longest playoff drought in the whole league, behind only toronto. It is also possible they change the format. But hey, in a lottery involving the whole league, anything could happen
The Penguins still had 3 balls in the lottery because they traded up from #3 to #1 to get Fleury in 2003.
