who, Ladies and gentlemen on Live right here on SportsCastr Almost government in lunch story cap of the NHL draft lottery.
So that age old draft was postponed and it's pushed back to a later date and I will get that date to you.
But again, we will always have the NHL draft lottery.
And then you have the draft, which would have been in Montreal this year.
But, of course, because of Kobe.
19 not just NHL, but other drafts, including the MLB draft, the NFL draft and soon to be the MBA drive has gone through some change.
And with the NHL, a few changes have happened.
And one of the big changes is that this NHL draft was bit more confusing and we will get to that in a second.
So let's just recap the eight lottery picks that will pick tonight again.
You read them in any joke commission All spot.
Spend the ping Pong balls and you know the Red Wings and stay finished again.
The regular season it was officially over, but Kovar, 19 made it.
And But when the season ended and want it stopped due to Kobe 19 the Red Wings had the world's record.
And that's why the Red Wings had the most Ping Pong balls.
And so the Red Wings had the best odds to win and had the first draft picks.
So again, the NHL draft Lauder, same as the n b.
A draft lottery is a lottery where you spend ping pong balls and pin pong ball you pick is gonna be that pick.
So they pick the the first pick in the second pic and the third.
It's kind of like the real lottery, but obviously, the team that has the world's record and has a better chance to win has more Ping Pong balls.
So let's get to the draft.
Lottery results, starting with number eight and the Buffalo Sabres have a pick in the NHL draft.
The new Drazi Devil's number six Anaheim Ducks again have the six pick in the draft.
The Auto Senators and the Ottawa Senators have two picks in this draft, so if it's at number five and they weren't drafted in 67 right, they're gonna have these are one pick through the four pick.
So again, Ottawa Senators at the fifth pick in the draft the Red Wings have the four pick in the draft.
So that was a big thing, because the Red Wings again were the projected first pick in the draft because they had the most Ping Pong ball.
So that means they were the most likely to get picked first, which would make them the first pick.
But understand, they fall back to not second not, though, to four place.
So they fall three spots back in the red rings with the protected Frost pick and then the second, then the third fall back to fourth place. So the red rings.
Tough luck have the fourth pick in the draft.
This Senate always have the third pick in the draft, so the senator was like, I said, have two picks in the draft.
The fifth and third pick, one of the first round picks, was acquired in that Eric Carson trade again.
Every Carson's a great player, so you gave up a first round pick.
So that was that Number two, the Los Angeles Kings.
And that means the first pick in the draft goes to on NHL team, the any Joe Placeholder pick.
So again, the first pick in the draft was an odd one.
This year, it is the placeholder team again.
After the qualifying round, the eight team that eliminated will have equally weighted odds to win the topic and face two of the NHL draft lottery.
So many gels open face three in the face three plan.
But there's a phase two of the NHL draft because of this playing torture.
So usually, when you're done with the season, it's not like the NFL where, you know, you know, the Bangles.
When the season ended, they had the worst record.
So the Bangles well, the first pick in the draft, they knew that Now, with the NBN NHL, since they both have a lottery pick, they both have MBA in NHL draft lotteries before actual draft.
The teams know how much Ping Pong balls.
They're gonna get right based on the record, but they don't know what pick they're gonna get, because again, it's a lot of the drawing with Ping Pong balls.
But because of this playing around, and we don't know what the team's records are gonna be and how far they're gonna make it to the playoffs, there was an N H O placeholder Ping Pong ball, and it happens to be the first pick in the draft.
Yeah, so that was something different.
No, I do not know exactly how this will work, but all I will know is Alexis LaFree, Nia Rule be the first book in the job again.
He was supposed to walk on the stage Friday night in Montreal as the top pick in the draft, but instead he's gonna do it virtually.
It's much different, but you're still gonna get drafted.
Thank you, Tina.
Thank you, Brandy for drawing and for the follow much appreciate.
So that will happen again.
The lottery format was a bit different this year, a bit more confusing and complicated than usual due to Kobe, 19.
Stopping the season two again and show regular season is officially over.
But instead of 16 teams in the playoffs, you have 20 2024 teams, right? Um, so then, instead of the regular 16 teams make the playoffs, you have 24 teams, and that's why the 2014 is a playing around tournaments or, technically, the teams that losing that playing around or considered not playoff teams.
That's why it's not called the first round.
It's called the playing around.
They should present for joining.
It's called the plane around not the first round, because the playing around, according to Gary Bettman, it's not really considered the playoffs.
So if you lose that plane around, you're not considered a playoff team and that you would be eligible for the NHL draft lottery.
But now there was Onley in this draft, any child placeholder team for the team that loses in the plane map.
And obviously eight teams are gonna lose in the playing around again.
24 teams making the playoffs.
Six teams with a bye 16 teams playing in the playground.
So eight out of the 16 teams are gonna lose.
So, out of those eight teams that losing the plane around one of those 18 we're gonna get the first pick.
It could have been the second thing could've been the thought could have been the fourth could with it had been the six could've in the seven have been they again.
This is a lottery with the big bomb, boss.
So happens to be the NHL placeholder team happens to be the first pick in the draft, but again, was the lottery.
Any Chuck play soccer team could have been the fifth pick in the draft.
A pick again picks one to wait.
So luckily for the team that losing the plane around, they're gonna have again.
The Red Wings have the worst picture, worst record.
So they should have the best pick, like in NFL.
But like any Joan MBE do, it's allowed away.
So just because you're the worst team doesn't mean you're gonna get the first big.
And I like this because it makes it exciting again.
When the NFL season ends, we know Bangles have the first pick, but with the NH on MBA, it gets exciting.
Who's gonna get the first pick? Because there's a lot of.
But also you won't get a lot of teams that are taking right, because you so the Red Wings we're taking to get the first pick that they don't end up getting the first pick because again, it's a lot of so just because you have the worst record doesn't mean you're gonna win the first pick of the draft again.
You have the best odds because you have the most big bomb balls doesn't mean you're gonna get first pick and drop.
So that's why the NHL number, they don't want things taking.
So that's why they have a lot of so again, it was a bit different this year.
But that Angel draft will still be going on but again has pushed back so again the losers of the plane round.
So, eight out of the 16 teams that are gonna lose in the plane around, we're gonna have a major prize ahead of them.
That is the first pick in the drop.
It will soon be a major prize, you know, getting you know, the first pick.
Second pick their pick for pick, pick, pick six.
Picked, seven thick eighth pick in the draft wherever the NHL placeholder pick lays but happens to be in the lottery.
So no team was the first pick in the draft.
So that's a big, big, big price for one out of eight teams that losing the plane.
So again there was a 24.
5 percent chance of a plane around team winning the topic, and that's what happened.
A plane team again.
We don't know the playing team yet because the plane around didn't even happen but a placeholder team.
And again, the place where your team is one of the losers, one of the eight losers of the plane rounds.
So it's really called The Placeholder team has a 20 foot, 4.
5% chance of warning the topic in.
It'd just blow Ottawa's chances because I don't want a big chance because they had two picks and they had the 35th.
Red rings all started 18.
5% chance cause at the roast.
So again, the Troy take over the biggest loser in this draft because they were projected first book.
And not just that.
From first, they felt from second and from third, they fell back three spots, the four spot.
So that's the big loss, and that is that anyway.
Again, those the NHL draft lie results one more time to eat.
Seventh double, sixth Ducks fifth.
Senators fourth Red Wings, third Senators to kings and the Bulls pick of place on her team, which will be determined based on one out of eight losers of the plane around.
Now we may get some cheating in the plane around.
We may have a team that's gonna pocus it.
Lose the plane around to get the first pick in the draft.
But again, it's not like the NFL.
If you have the worst record, you automatically get the first pick.
It's going to be the same gonna be NHL draft lottery stays to.
There's gonna be another draft lottery for the eight losers in the plane around.
So if your team loses in the plane around, you're gonna have a drug.
You're gonna be in the lottery for a chance to win the first pick in that age old drop.
I was gonna win.
Thank you, everyone for watching peace out again.
And it's your draft. Lottery is done.
With starving NHL draft in, There would be no NHL draft lottery face to for the one of the eight teams that losing face in the plane.
See you guys later.
Pizza. Have a good night
