Yup yup, we still have the chance to pick anywhere with one ball, I'm hopeful we can slip into the top 20 again, like in 2005. Our last first round pick in the top 20 (beside '05 with Kindl) was 1991 with Lapointe, but there are so many intriguing prospects all over the board I'm pretty excited wherever we land. Remember in 2005 they snaked the 2nd round, so even if we landed high 20s, we'd have an early 2nd rounder. Can't really be too disappointed.

and Henkka if you're still wondering, this chart explains it the best for 2013. Any team can be top 10 but the more lottery balls you have, the higher % chance you have. Props to a blog called Dirty Dangle, found it on there.

Although, the Islanders first overall shouldn't be counted. They have 3 balls as well.
