NHL draft scenarios
Not really that great an article from Strachan but it's not bad. It's already been decided that teams will not lose the rights to their unsigned 2003 draft picks.
I do like the idea of a lottery between the bottom five teams for 1-5, the next 5 teams for 6-10. I think it's completely unfair for playoff teams to have a shot at the #1 overall. Also don't like the idea of making the Caps (and possibly the Pens) ineligible for the #1 overall simply because they got Ovechkin and Malkin last year. Teams like Ottawa and Quebec ended up with 3 1st overalls in 4 years and no one was saying those guys should not be eligible to get it.
