No! Makes zero sense. Pending lockout, there will not be a random draft order. It will be the ping pong ball system and or a revised version of the previous lock out formula.

I think it could increase to a 1-5 ping pong ball lottery based upon the last 3 seasons record / playoffs - Stanley cups / 1st overall picks.

If there isn't a season and teams like Columbus / Toronto / NYI do not get a decent 2013 pick, there will be riots, .... well at least in Toronto. My Wild in theory deserve a top 7 pick (or so) but who's to say they will get lucky enough.
