It's the first year all 14 clubs not qualifying for the Stanley Cup Playoffs (or the clubs holding their 1st pick) have a chance at winning the first selection.The likelihood of each team getting the first overall pick, from team worst, to 14th worst is (in %): 25.0, 18.8, 14.2, 10.7, 8.1, 6.2, 4.7, 3.6, 2.7, 2.1, 1.5, 1.1, 0.8, 0.5
I will roll on the ground and laugh my ass off if Calgary ends up with a pick outside of the top 5.
Ok....fine....I'll be in my recliner, but I digress on that.
Now if only the fates will conspire.
You still can't drop more than a spot in the draft order, for what it's worth.
How does that work then?
If Colorado wins the lottery and gets the 1st overall pick, Calgary automatically gets the 2nd pick?
