as far as the lottery goes, im constantly having questions about it because whenever i think it goes one way, it gets cleared up and its different. i initially thought they changed it to more like basketball where the picks can land in whatever order they draw them (i dont know if theres a "4spot" rule or something like that in basketball) but here in the nhl draft theyre saying you can only drop back 1 spot...so does that mean you see who wins the top pick, and if its a team who wasnt the worst team then everyone just moves back one spot and theres the order? if everyone has a shot at getting that pick, even #14, then it would be nice to know that we could only slide 1 spot. is that correct?

wouldnt that be great if we got mackinnon (or even barkov). finally, we would no longer have to worry about centers. MacKinnon, Bjugstad, Shore/Goc. that would be incredible!
Yes, you can only slide back one spot.
