As for that "lucky break" you're talking about the 2nd overall was Malkin. So yeah, I'd much rather have either Malkin or OV + the top five the following year. But they got the shaft and drafted 15th.
They had 2 balls so statistically, it's not surprising they didn't get top 5. Many teams had 3.
The fact is, they moved up from #2 to first overall. According to the rules, this meant they lost 1 ball in the lottery. That seems fair to me.
