depends if there are still slots available....if all the non playoff teams grab the top spots, I'm pretty sure that, if....aw **** it. who am I trying to fool? I don't have a PHD in Advanced Bettman Strategies. Maybe someone else can answer.If Pitt loses do they slide into the lottery ?
I am hearing that if picks 1-3 are awarded by the non playing teams , lottery is overBottom line on the draft lottery after you play out both phases (if necessary) is that each of the 8 losers of the play-in round have an equal 3.06% chance at the 1st overall pick. Then slightly higher chances (but no much higher) at the 2nd and 3rd overall picks. Its 75.5% that one of the non-playoff teams will get the first overall pick.
lol ya, Habs got screwed again. So dumb. We were better off not making the playoffs. But financially the playoffs gives Molson a bit extra cash, so it works out for ownership.So if I’m reading it right, the Habs after losing in the play-in round would have the same chance at getting a top 3 pick as any other team losing the same round. How did we agree to this?? I guess that the cost of making a playoff we didn’t deserve to make.
Yeah those guesses are as good as any. Arizona and Colorado could be options in the west too.I'm going to guess it's two US cities with local and state governments that have relaxed restrictions and a political appetite to get back to normal quickly. Florida? Vegas? Just guessing.
Don't see it being Toronto and would be quite disappointed if it was.
Just read an article Vancouver was on the short list.I thought Canadian cities were a no go due to customs
That is correct buts its easier to just do the math. Those percentages I showed are the odds of any of the 15 teams ending up with the first overall pick. Those percentages are correct overall odds without the confusing language about multiple draws depending on what happens in the first draw.I am hearing that if picks 1-3 are awarded by the non playing teams , lottery is over
The other teams have no shot to move into the top 3
