TheGuardian_ Posted March 24, 2016 Share Posted March 24, 2016 Each draft position is assigned a certain range of numbers at random so they don't have to do a huge number of balls dropping. It is the "random" where I would like to get the numbers as they coincide with the balls being dropped. The numbers could/would already be signed to each draft position just needing teams to assign each spot. The list already exists, it was posted awhile ago, but has disappeared in the last month and looking for it results in millions of hits, hence the tin hat stuff. It is not the percentage chance I look for, it is the actual "formula" that was posted once. Without the "formula" and the numbers already posted for each position, "random" might not be so "random". If anyone could help me find that list and post it that would be great. FYI, there are hundreds of numbers assigned to each position, it's a big list. I would think that the third spot is something like 12 to the third power or so. Anyone do that numerology stuff? Do the Nucks have lucky numbers? How about Astrology?

Spotted Zebra Posted March 24, 2016 Share Posted March 24, 2016 Canucks and lucky don't really go together. I don't know the formula that you're looking for but I'm sure someone does Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

wloutet Posted March 24, 2016 Share Posted March 24, 2016 The 1000 different combinations can be done with only 14 balls, where 4 are picked. The formula is 14C4 on your calculators which results in 1001 different combinations. Drop down 4 of the 14 balls and register the result such as: 8, 2, 7, 11. Of these 1001 combos, 201 could be assigned to the Last Place team, giving them 20% chance of getting first pick. The rest of the chances of first pick can then be assigned other combinations. Easy!

appleboy Posted March 24, 2016 Share Posted March 24, 2016 If you end up in the bottom 5 there is a better chance of moving down then up. That is why I would like to see us drop farther. you can only lose 3 spots. Who cares about the math. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

If you take two calculators and put them side by side then punch in 80085 on both, what do you get? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

Those assigned numbers were on the net before, now they are gone. I mean the numbers assigned for each draft position. I am looking for the actual numbers, not just the formula.
