That's how we were TOLD it worked...
If it comes down to a lottery again, MLSE should 'remind' Bettman how loyal they were during this whole mess. They have paid more in lost hockey revenue than any other team therefore deserve something in return. (ie guaranteed top 5 pick)
A lost season doesn't suddenly make every organization equal, so not everyone should have a shot at number 1. However the draft shouldn't be based on only the last season either, but a total of the last 3 would be good. With the added caveat of no top 5 lottery pick if you already had a 1st or made the playoffs in the last 3 years.
In other words, only the current weaker teams get top 5 pick, like it should be.
