Thats good for them, they deserve it. I wonder who they're first pick will be??

When life gives you lemons throw them at the Ottawa Senators and their fans and hope it gets them in the eyes ;)

Good, Chicago needs the advantage of being able to pick the best players sooner. Then hopefully their season will be a bit better than this year's.

Another frustration for the Oilers. If they would have lost to Calgary on Saturday night, they would have had 1st overall pick.

Esposito will not be the #1 pick, I hope not...

There are: People that make things happen, people that watch things happen, and people that wonder what happened, who are you...

I say they will pick James Vansrysmdyk( I think that's how you spell it) When the world under 17 tournament was in Regina I was a stick boy and I met him I saw him big power forward.

Pretty cool to be the stick boy, eh?

But Angelo or Jacub Voracek will go ahead of him.

I've figured it out, the guys gotta play like girls!

It seems that there may be a little uncertainty about how they decide who gets the first pick overall. Here is a snippet directly from the current NHL/NHLPA Collective Bargaining Agreement that should help clear it up. I also see that it is listed in the article link at the top of this page:

---------------------------------------------
Entry Draft Selection

The order of the selection of the first round of the 2006 Entry Draft and Entry Drafts in the years following, shall be determined as follows:

(a) Clubs that do not make the Playoffs participate in a weighted drawing.
(b) The non Playoff Clubs shall be ranked in the inverse order of the Regular Season point totals, with team #1 being the Club with the worst record, team #14 being the club with the best record:

Team --------------- Odds
1 ------------------- 25.0%
2 ------------------- 18.8%
3 ------------------- 14.2%
4 ------------------- 10.7%
5 ------------------- 8.1%
6 ------------------- 6.2%
7 ------------------- 4.7%
8 ------------------- 3.6%
9 ------------------- 2.7%
10 ------------------ 2.1%
11 ------------------ 1.5%
12 ------------------ 1.1%
13 ------------------ 0.8%
14 ------------------ 0.5%
