If the season gets cancelled, how would the next draft work?
I was just reading an article on Puck Daddy about the positives for Columbus on having the ASG postponed, and there's this:
I don't recall how the last draft worked following the lockout, was it a straight random lottery or was it weighted with the standings of the previous season? It'd be a silver lining in this whole schmozzle if my Leafs are poised to get another high pick without having to watch them suck hard to earn it.
By not playing, the Blue Jackets assure themselves of being in prime lottery position to draft Nathan MacKinnon, a potential franchise player.
