NHL Draft Lottery Thread that Matters not One Lick to Us

"Craig, is that a Tambellini's foot you're rubbing?" - Abelimages

Watch the NHL Draft Lottery and laugh at how it no longer concerns you!

Hey Islanders fans, it's time for the NHL Draft Lottery ... and you're not invited!

Wooooooooplayoffs!!!!1

It's televised tonight at 8 p.m. EDT on TSN (Canada) and NBS Sports Network (U.S.).

[UPDATE: Colorado won the lottery, moving from 2nd to 1st overall and bumping Florida into 2nd. Everyone else stays as they were. Watch the full show -- including James Duthie shaming each team in between picks -- at TSN here.]

Here are the odds, which are the same as always except now the team that wins the lottery actually wins the #1 overall pick -- even if they are lower than fifth on the list below:

1 - Florida - 25.0%
2 - Colorado - 18.8%
3 - Tampa Bay - 14.2%
4 - Nashville - 10.7%
5 - Carolina - 8.1%
6 - Calgary - 6.2%
7 - Edmonton - 4.7%
8 - Buffalo - 3.6%
9 - New Jersey - 2.7%
10 - Dallas - 2.1%
11 - Philadelphia - 1.5%
12 - Phoenix - 1.1%
13 - Winnipeg - 0.8%
14 - Columbus - 0.5%

Here are links to Central Scouting's ranking of the top North American and European skaters. (Follow those if you really want to see goalie links too, but no team should ever draft a goalie with a lottery pick. Ever.)
