Hearing June 26 is the date that we should have the NHL Lottery Draft. No dates on the NHL Draft yet.

Even if that's only a best of 5 it is getting very unlikely that the bottom 8 of the 24 "playoff" teams will be decided by the 26th. Which means that it's beginning to look like a done deal that only the 7 bottom teams will participate in the lottery. Not quite 10% yet but damn close.
Of course the probabilities are not yet known but you've got to think that with the 2nd and 3rd overall the Sens would have the best odds of landing Lafrenier.

Well, none of the Canadian teams are going to win the Cup, and we're going to come out with, by far, the shiniest draft toys. So Diddle it, things are good.

I am not as hurt if teams can only fall one spot but it sounds like that is off the table too.
