Were you people not following hockey during the last lockout? If we remain locked out and the NHL uses a similar weighted lottery, anyone can place anywhere.
Well, we are making an educated guess based on our previous like 5 picks or so. We always seem to be picking in the lower-20s, so saying around 20 isn't that far of a stretch. I don't think we will get a pick above like 18, unless we trade up. But who knows, maybe we end up at like 12 (even though that probably won't happen). How exactly did they do the draft lottery last time?
