If the season gets cancelled, how would the next draft work?
I was just reading an article on Puck Daddy about the positives for Columbus on having the ASG postponed, and there's this:
By not playing, the Blue Jackets assure themselves of being in prime lottery position to draft Nathan MacKinnon, a potential franchise player.
I don't recall how the last draft worked following the lockout, was it a straight random lottery or was it weighted with the standings of the previous season? It'd be a silver lining in this whole schmozzle if my Leafs are poised to get another high pick without having to watch them suck hard to earn it.
