I would hope they scale it in a version such as you mention , although for me I don't want any teams that make the playoffs having a chance for the overall pick .[/
Agreed. But imagine we are a bubble team and just miss out on the playoffs. Having everyone that didn't make the playoffs involved in the draft lottery would be assume. IMO this is more likely than us being a true bottom feeder...I hope
Like your optimism , however I have no confidence in a shortened season to do well or poorly for that matter , all bets are off so to speak.
The pessimistic view could easily see Pavelec being spotty at best and who knows what shape any player may show up in , let alone a key guy like Buff who has been known to enjoy a liesurely off season , we are missing Bogosian , the injury may take longer to heal than anticipated , we have the travel aspect .... and a lot of teams could easily be better.
An elite level prospect to add to Scheifele , and Trouba would so painful as a franchise to miss out on if we have a bad shortened season , imo.
