Lottery is just that, a lottery.
I am of the opinion the only way to make the draft lottery fair is that EVERY team that doesn't make the playoffs are given equal odds.
In fact, just put one ball from the 15/16 non playoff teams in the hopper and draw them one at a time.
The entire reason the lottery was put in was to stop teams from being crap the whole season just to get the 1st overall pick.
Now that the risk of that 1st OA not going to thee worst team, people call it unfair. Can't have it both ways.
Besides, you wanna talk "conspiracy", don't be shocked when Crosby and the Pens lay waste to the Habs in the play-in round and then it turns out MTL in fact is the mystery team who won the 1st OA pick.
Draft was supposed to be held in MTL-----cancelled
No. 1 pick is a highly skilled French Canadian kid
Just like the league handed Matthews to the Leafs, they will this year find a way to hand Laf to the Habs
