What happens in draft 2005?

If there is no season next year..

what happens to the draft 2005?

Is it Washington picking first again..or only the lottery teams getting a chance at Crosby or do all the teams go in a big pile and get picked?

There have been countless threads on these, no one knows exactly what will happen.

If the year is lost, then perhaps they don't even have the 2005 draft. They may just combine every player into the 2006 draft.

There's so much uncertainty right now. That's why I was hoping that Burke wouldn't go nuts and start trading 2005 or 2006 draft picks. Don't know what the NHL will do if the entire season is lost.

If the 2005 draft is cancelled, a 2005 draft pick that is traded away could come back to haunt you if they simply move it over to the 2006 draft, with double the talent.

double the talent..but double the picks too so at the end, it's the same thing..

There is no way they could just cancel the 2005 draft and/or merge it with 2006. Picks have been dealt already and it wouldn't be fair and there would be a lot of protest from teams that it effected negatively.

I could imagine they might delay it until a new CBA is in place then proceed to have a draft with all 2005 eligible players, whether it be in the actualy calander year of 2006 or not. And then have a 2006 draft afterwards.

Just kind of thinking outside the box but what about:

Averaging the teams records over the last 5 years and then having a draft lottery with the worst 14?

or

Keeping the order the same as '04 but having a lottery for just the #1 overall pick for all 30 teams - each team getting an equal shot?

Don't know how logical those are but thought I'd throw them out there.

I can't see the NHL keeping the draft order for '05 based on last years records alone - even though I personally wouldn't be upset b/c my CBJs would have a lottery pick.

As a Caps fan

I think it's only fair to keep the same draft order as 2004.

This topic was discussed on the Leafs board today. \http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=78617 I wouldn't mind seeing the NHL just keep business closed and get the draft age backed up to 20, where it was before the WHA frigged it up.

There may never be another Entry Draft after 2004, as its existence is one of the items on the CBA negotiation table. Certainly many agents would like to see it abolished and their clients become unrestricted free agents at 18.

I think the only logical solution, is to put all 30 teams into a random lottery; clean slate.

I wish they did that, no matter what NJ has better odds of haveing a better pick this way.

I agree. There is no games played so there is no way that we could just stay the same.

The one thing that is certain is that if there is no CBA there is no draft. The CBA dictates the rules in which the draft is run, everything from the number of rounds to who is considered eligible.

It all depends on when the CBA is resolved, if it was resolved next year during the summertime, I would imagine they would reschedule it, but if we miss 1.5-2 seasons of hockey I would expect them to merge with the next draft in 2006.

It's hard to tell what they would do with draft order, but I could see another lotto system used to give the teams a little slide in the order. Maybe if they had it so every team could slide up to 4 picks up in the draft order, and they would draw the order for every team with no team slipping more than 4 picks. I would not expect them to keep the same order as the 2004 draft, and would at very least expect them to re-draw the lotto picks already made.

Re-drawing the whole draft is flawed in my opinion because some teams can be expected to have good seasons and would benefit too much from drawing a lucky high pick. That's why I think you have to put a limit to the movement.
