One of the more intriguing things in NHL offer is a draft lottery that would give all non-playoff teams a chance at first pick. Overdue.

Basically what the NBA has.
If this means that finishing 17th or 18th overall provides same chance at no. 1 pick as finishing 30th overall, it's a brilliant move, and long overdue.

This could finally solve the problem of Habs Syndrome, teams that make a huge effort, just miss all the time, and never get the chance to draft a star, and then move out of that endless finishing 10th to 7th in conference world.

It also eliminates multiple tanking teams like the Oil and the Pens from being assured no. one overall. This I really like.
