My question is just what happens to those draft picks? Are two kids going to lose out on their chance to be drafted because of the Devils?
I guess they could have a 29-team lottery for the picks. That would probably make the most sense.
Actually, the picks are going to be automatically awarded to the winner of an unaudited and behind-closed-doors draft lottery. Gary Bettman has announced that the lottery has already taken place and the winner of all the picks is the Pittsburgh Penguins.
