Will the canucks have a chance at #1 Draft pick?

78 posts in this topic

Just wondering if there is no season will everyone in the NHL have a shot at the #1 pick. I believe thats how Pittsburgh got Crosby.

That would be deadly if canucks get a shot at a # 1 pick because we have never picked #1.

I believe it is possible, but the chance is a lot lower than 1 in 30.

It would be nice for a change if they just put all 30 balls into the machine and gave everyone equal chance.

Why do we have less than 1 in 30 chance if noone plays than everyone should have an equal chance?

I wonder if we have the worst luck with 1st round picks.. Only a small percentage of ours go on to do great things with our team...

with the 2005 lottery rules in effect this is how it would go:

Each team begins with three balls in the lottery barrel. For every playoff appearance in the last three years or No. 1 overall pick over the last four years, a team loses one ball.

3 ball teams

CALGARY

DALLAS

TORONTO

COLUMBUS

WINNIPEG

CAROLINA

MINNESOTA

2 ball teams

NY ISLANDERS

ANAHEIM

COLORADO

ST. LOUIS

TAMPA BAY

FLORIDA

1 ball teams

EDMONTON

PITTSBURGH

PHILADELPHIA

BOSTON

WASHINGTON

NY RANGERS

VANCOUVER

SAN JOSE

DETROIT

NASHVILLE

PHOENIX

LOS ANGELES

CHICAGO

NEW JERSEY

BUFFALO

OTTAWA

MONTRÉAL

That means we'd have a 1 in 50 (2%) chance to get 1st overall...

Imagine if every years draft was done this way. It actually wouldn't be too bad, since garbage teams wouldn't be rewarded with stanley cups.
