2013 NHL Draft Lottery – Avs win, Sabres 8th – Mon Apr 29 – 8:00PM ET – NBCSN, TSN

2013 Scotiabank NHL Draft Lottery to be held Monday:
Quote:
The 2013 Scotiabank NHL Draft Lottery, a weighted system to determine the order of selection for the first 14 picks of the 2013 NHL Draft, will take place Monday, April 29, at 8 p.m., ET.

The League, in cooperation with TSN, will announce the results of the Draft Lottery live during a 30-minute program produced and televised by TSN in Canada. The special presentation also will air in the U.S. on NBC Sports Network and will re-air on NHL Network U.S. at 9 p.m., ET.

The 2013 Scotiabank NHL Draft Lottery will be the first in NHL history in which all 14 clubs not qualifying for the Stanley Cup® Playoffs -- or the clubs that have acquired the first-round drafting positions of those non-playoff teams -- will have a chance at winning the right to the first overall selection.

The odds of winning the lottery are unchanged from previous years and determined by the teams' regular-season point totals. The lottery-winning team will draft first overall, with the remaining 13 teams slotted in reverse order of their regular-season point totals. In previous years, the winning team could move up no more than four slots in the draft order.

Based on team finish, the percentage chance of being selected in the Draft Lottery is:

Florida Panthers 25.0%
Colorado Avalanche 18.8%
Tampa Bay Lightning 14.2%
Nashville Predators 10.7%
Carolina Hurricanes 8.1%
Calgary Flames 6.2%
Edmonton Oilers 4.7%
Buffalo Sabres 3.6%
New Jersey Devils 2.7%
Dallas Stars 2.1%
Philadelphia Flyers 1.5%
Phoenix Coyotes 1.1%
Winnipeg Jets 0.8%
Columbus Blue Jackets 0.5%

The 2013 NHL Draft will be held Sunday, June 30, with all seven rounds being conducted on the same day for the first time since 2006. As previously announced, the New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center will host the event.
To sum, our pick could be: 1st (3.6%), 8th (87.7%) or 9th (8.7%).

EDIT: Avs won .. Sabres pick 8th.

There are not many things in this world that would make Buffalo sports fans happier than a #1 overall pick for ANY of their teams. Now I am not a Bills fan, but after this weekend's NFL Draft, I think many fans were rather upset that the choices were made and the position that they were in.

The Sabres though, they have the opportunity to hit the jackpot on Monday night. I know the chances are very, very, very (can't emphasize that enough) slim - yet there is still a chance. "SO YOU'RE SAYING THERE'S A CHANCE?" Yes, there's a chance and it would be the most miraculous thing to happen since signing Ville Leino of course...

We dealt with a grueling season, and it was more grueling than Florida's because we have expectations as a hockey market team to succeed. Our team consists of bums, trolls, etc., but we need that bonafide star. Who knows what will happen if we lose Vanek? Who knows where we will finish next season? All I ask God/Jesus/Ghandi/Mohammed/Whoever is up there, to give us the opportunity to draft a stud.

Is that too much to ask for?

Also, completely dumb that the entire 14-team order is not in flux.

I'll call my shot now.

We aren't getting #1, so stop dreaming about it.

At BEST, we'll go 5 or 6.

It's impossible now. It's either 1, 8, or 9.

I hate it.

So do they actually show the process? Or is it done before hand and they just reveal results?

If what I am reading is correct, New Jersey won the lottery out of the 8 spot in 2011. They only moved up 4 spots as per the rules back then but it has happened before!

that "can only move up 4 spots" rule seems absolutely Neanderthal compared to even what we have this year.
