I wonder what the actual "lottery" is like...it can't be like the lottery "machines" you see on TV with the balls, because how do you have .5% of a ball..?...is it a physical lottery or some sort of computer program...does anybody know?

you can still have .5% with ball system.

1 ball of 200 is .5%

Ok fair enough on the .5%...but how many balls out of 200 is 18.8% for example..?

The NHL Draft Lottery is a weighted system to determine the order of selection for the first 14 picks of the 2013 NHL Draft. Teams finishing with the fewest points during the regular season possess the greatest chance of winning the right to the first pick in the NHL Draft. Fourteen balls, numbered 1 to 14, are placed in a lottery machine. The machine expels four balls, forming a series of numbers. The four-digit series resulting from the expulsion of the balls is matched against a probability chart that divides the possible combinations among the 14 participating clubs.

So as of now the Canucks have a 2.7% chance at first overall pick. Can the teams move up or down into any of the other places? Like could Vancouver end up finishing in the 9th spot but move up to say the second or third pick in the lotto? Or is it just the #1 pick that is in play?

only the 1st pick is in play. If we finish in the 9th spot, lets pray no teams behind us get the 1st pick, because if that happens we get bumped down to the 10th spot. But no worries, I know this team will drop further down within the next week or so.

Gary Bettman runs the lottery, it cannot be done with balls because as we all know, GARY BETTMAN HAS NO BALLS and will never have balls to use in the Lottery. It will be done on the Bettman honesty type Lottery where he will randomnly pick a team.

I think Canucks could finish 6th-7th in the lottery standings.

Just the number one pick. So, if the Canucks finish 9th in the lottery standings, they can pick 1st, 9th, or 10th. The only way they would pick 10th is if a team from spots 10-14 won the lottery.
