There will be no changes to NHL draft lottery odds, for this year anyway. Only difference is team that wins lottery gets No. 1 overall pick.

In the past, lottery winner could move up only four slots. There was thought to changing odds - may happen in future but won't be this year.

Only non-playoff teams have shot at winning lottery and getting 1st overall pick. Odds of winning as follows: 30th place, 25 per cent...

29th,18.8; 28th, 14.2; 27th, 10.7; 26th, 8.1; 25th, 6.2; 24th, 4.7; 23rd, 3.6; 22nd, 2.7; 21st, 2.1; 20th, 1.5; 19th,1.1, 18th, .8; 17th, .5

Great news for us.
So we are going to a style similar to the nba? Basically, all the lottery picks are up for grabs between the non-playoff teams ..... ? The 12th team could get the 8th pick, the 9th team the 5th pick and so on. Correct?
