    Red Wings will pick #4, some playoff loser picks #1

    The team that will pick No. 1 overall in the 2020 NHL Draft went unidentified during the NHL Draft Lottery on Friday night.
    That's because one of the 16 teams set to participate in the NHL's play-in round for the retooled Stanley Cup Playoffs will receive that No. 1 overall pick. Per TSN's Frank Seravalli, each of the eight teams eliminated in the opening round will have an equal 12.5 percent chance in "a second lottery draw to be conducted at a later date." The "phase one" lottery results: 1. TBD, 2. Los Angeles Kings, 3. Ottawa Senators, 4. Detroit Red Wings, 5. Ottawa Senators, 6. Anaheim Ducks, 7. New Jersey Devils, 8. Buffalo Sabres. Canadian winger Alexis Lafreniere is the prize that awaits the organization that ultimately grabs that top selection.

    If this doesn't show that how the current system is broken, I don't know what will.

    We sat here thinking, "oh, we have the worst record so we will get the #1 pick". But, in reality we had a 50.6% chance of selecting 4th. How the **** that is acceptable for the worst team in the NHL is ridiculous. We received exactly where we were most likely to select at. Had more of a chance to select #4 than 1, 2, and 3 combined.

    Ridiculous.

    AND, you're going to give a team that is still playing for a chance to make the playoffs the #1 pick? **** is broken. Needs to be fixed. Terrible. Just give the worst team based on record the #1 pick. I don't think you'd see the type of tanking you see in the NBA.

    This all of this. This is straight up BS. I think the NHL really needs to look into this.

    if you endorse your coach, and you flop massively, you should either get the #1 pick and be forced to keep the bum coach, or get screwed and kiss the bum coach goodbye

    Now we're in a spot where we didn't get the pick and we're stuck with the turd burglar coach for another year, so he can fail again, and we'll get screwed again, and the young talent won't develop
