Guest Posted April 3, 2016 Report Share Posted April 3, 2016 This year’s NHL draft lottery has a very different dynamic to it. We will see the début of the top three spots all determined by a bounce of some lottery balls. With that comes some intriguing possibilities for outcomes. Just because you finish in 30th doesn’t guarantee you a spot in the top three. In fact, the chances of the last place team picking fourth is almost a coin flip at 47.5%. Even though last place has the best odds of landing the top pick at 20%, more often than not, someone below jumps up and steals the pick from them. These are the odds of getting the #1 pick in this years draft with the last number being games remaining. It's the most updated i've come across, however it's one or two games behind. Please feel free to post the most up to date odds if you can find them. Edmonton Oilers 20.0% 67 3 Toronto Maple Leafs 13.5% 67 6 Vancouver Canucks 11.5% 67 6 Columbus Blue Jackets 9.5% 68 6 Winnipeg Jets 8.5% 69 5 Calgary Flames 7.5% 70 5 Buffalo Sabres 6.5% 73 5 Arizona Coyotes 6.0% 75 6 Montreal Canadiens 5.0% 76 5 Ottawa Senators 3.5% 79 5 Carolina Hurricanes 3.0% 82 5 New Jersey Devils 2.5% 82 5 Colorado Avalanche 2.0% 82 5 Detroit Red Wings 1.0% 87 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
