You just know the league would land a top 2 pick with a league supported team or the big bread earners. About half to two thirds of the league have better or similar chances than the Avs.
Only 7 teams have a better chance than the Avs

TEAMS WITH THREE BALLS (7)
Calgary, Carolina, Columbus, Dallas, Minnesota, Toronto, Winnipeg

TEAMS WITH TWO BALLS (6)
Anaheim, Colorado, Florida, New York (I), St. Louis, Tampa Bay

TEAMS WITH ONE BALL (17)
Boston, Buffalo, Chicago, Detroit, Edmonton, Los Angeles, Montreal, Nashville, New Jersey, New York (R), Ottawa, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, San Jose, Vancouver, Washington

Although I do agree, the Avs would probably get a better pick by playing this season than no season.
