    Default NHL Draft Lottery Status

    If there is no more hockey this season, is there any chance that the League decides to scratch the Draft Lottery and just go based on who finished last, second last, third last etc??

    Or is this wishful thinking?

    I doubt that happens, although it wouldn't be the worst idea. I can see them doing something along the lines of the Crosby draft coming out of the lockout, but who knows how this will play out.


    10 Team, Points Only, Cash League

    25 Man Roster (no position), top 20 point getters count at end of month
    Keep 20/25 at seasons end, Cut 5 to FA for redrafting
    Goalie points W=2pt L=-1pt SHO=2pt

    Stamkos, Tavares, Eichel, Couture, Wheeler, Lee, Gusev, RThomas, Kucherov, Nugent-Hopkins, Burns, Zuccarello, JBoqvist, JSchwartz, KPalmieri, KConnor, Necas, Yandle, Point, Konecny, TBertuzzi, NSchmaltz, Vrana

    This make sense. Seems highly unlikely that the NHL gives the worst team first overall pick. The draft lottery was designed to give all non-playoff teams a shot at the top 3 picks. If anything I would see the league going the otherway and expanding the teams in the lottery from 16 to 20, to account for the fact that certain bubble teams may have missed the playoffs.

    If the playoffs are played as regular, 16 teams in, then the 15 on the outside will probably use the standard lottery results. In some ways that lets all teams get something: a playoff berth or a lottery berth. If the season is cancelled and no playoffs are played I suspect the league will want to do a lottery to get some hype going leading into the next season.

    They'll find a way to work in a lottery system of some kind, and the lottery draft show might be a collection of Skype calls. If nothing else it'll draw some eyeballs.

    I could see them expanding the lottery due to the uncertainty with the bubble teams. They’d also likely rank each team by points per game, it would be the fairest way IMO.

    No chance they go with the Crosby lottery plan. That season had no results to go off of while this one has a significant portion wrapped up. Also can’t see them going strictly with the reverse rankings, the NHL loves the suspense of the lottery.

    I haven't looked but if the NHL ends the reg season and goes by a point percentage are the Leafs out or in?

    it's an Interesting note as the 2020 - 1st to Carolina is top 10 protected.
    Similar as with Vancouver's 1st which now belongs to NJ. it is lotto protected.

    The news today about a potential tournament for the top pick is absolutely terrifying for me.

    Iíd bet my house that doesnít happen, itís a dumb idea in my opinion.

    They should just keep it simple. Adjust the standings by winning percentage and use the same lottery odds as usual. The bubble teams that donít qualify, well itís just bad luck for them. The flaw in this system, if the season is ultimately canceled, is that weíd be using the current (adjusted) standings for non-playoff teams but how do you rank or determine the draft order for the playoff teams? Iíd say simply have an unweighted lottery for all 16 teams.

    There's nothing else going on right now so fringe ideas will be covered as major stories. It's going to happen a lot.

    It would be a way to drum up a lot of extra $$ in lieu of a reg. season - that would be the goal of that I would imagine
