NHL just announced a change to the draft lottery.



Quote:
NEWARK, N.J. -- The NHL is borrowing a page from the NBA when it comes to the draft lottery.

The NHL announced Monday that all 14 teams that miss the playoffs, or the teams that hold the rights to the top 14 picks, will be eligible to win the No. 1 draft pick when the lottery is held on April 29.

Not sure how I feel about that. I can see the pros/cons for both styles.

I thought they decided that a long time ago?

I knew this going into the season once the lockout ended. I think?

Jack Johnson is available? He would like good in a Wild uniform imo and his contract doesn't break the bank.

He's all Columbus has right now. I'd imagine they would want a roster player with name-recognition (i.e. Koivu, etc).

Which makes one scratch their head trying to figure out what the Pens have to offer. They aren't exactly deep anywhere but on D and i don't see them willing to deal one of their name-recognition D men in exchange for Johnson. Makes me wonder what in fact CBJ might want.

I still want to see the entire draft order set by weighted random draw. Tanking is still too directly viable.

He has 14 goals and 2 assists for the season. Pretty nice G/A ratio there.

I figure Columbus will be going for another rebuild.....again.

Not sure if I'd want to get rid of prospects/pick. Columbus could be shopping Johnson as he's not having that great of a year...but the price would probably still be a lot.

And what if his rough season continues? And into next year? It's a big risk to take.

It all comes down to what Columbus would want. I'd be willing to give up a first rounder for him but to add a prospect to that....not sure if I'd bite.

I don't think they want to rebuild again. Their current prospect pool is pretty thin; they would be starting from scratch.

Their new GM, Jarmo Kekäläinen is known especially for his drafting ability, and he and the owner worked together in St. Louis. They know what they're getting.

Always liked JJ but the price would be too steep and I don't think he's quite what we need. If we're going to go after a high end d-man I'd rather it be a righty to play alongside Suter. That way we move Brodin down to the 2nd pairing with Gilbert and our top 4 would be very balanced and quite potent.

I'd give a 1st+mid level prospect for JJ. I'd play him with Gilbert. Suter-Brodin is too good to break up. We would have an above average top 4 then.

Columbus would be asking for a 1st, high-level prospect, and roster player just to start things off.

I agree, it isn't a price worth paying. But, it is Columbus, you never know with them.
