    12: Carolina Hurricanes (3.106% Chance of First Overall Pick. Moves down from Number 11 Spot)

    13: Winnipeg Jets (2.705% Chance of First Overall Pick. Moves down from Number 12 Spot)

    14: Tampa Bay Lightning (1.804% Chance of First Overall Pick. Stays at 14th Overall Pick)

    15: New York Islanders (0.902% Chance of First Overall Pick. Stays at 15th Overall Pick)

    In my opinion, I think the Draft Lottery odds should be based on points, not ranking. It is unbelievable that a team with 48 points is picking fourth and a team with 88 points is picking 2nd. The less points you have, the bigger your chance of winning the draft lottery is. For example, a team like Colorado should have a 30% chance of winning the draft lottery while Philadelphia should have a 1% chance of winning the draft lottery. Tell me your thoughts on the results in the comments.

    This is what the NHL wants. If you tank your not guaranteed a 2nd overall pick anymore, and imo that's good. They want everyone in the NHL to be competitive, and don't want to award bad teams with great draft picks. The funny thing is though, I don't think the Aves were even trying to tank (at first).

    I see your point. I just think it is unfair that a team like Vancouver, who were trying to be somewhat competitive (Signing Eriksson, trading for Gudbranson), get the fifth overall pick while Philadelphia, who had 88 points, get the second overall pick.

    Canucks were stupid. Trading young guys and picks and suddenly making a 180 to get a good pick is not competitive playing.
