The Lightning have won the 2008 draft lottery! Here is the picking order of the first 14 teams (the remainder of the teams are decided after the playoffs):

1. Tampa Bay Lightning
2. Los Angeles Kings
3. Atlanta Thrashers
4. St. Louis Blues
5. New York Islanders
6. Columbus Blue Jackets
7. Toronto Maple Leafs
8. Phoenix Coyotes
9. Nashville Predators (from Florida)
10. Vancouver Canucks
11. Chicago Blackhawks
12. Anaheim Ducks (from Edmonton)
13. Buffalo Sabres
14. Carolina Hurricanes

The Draft Drawing is a weighted system to give the teams that finished with the fewest points during the regular season the greatest chance of having their combination selected. The Lightning and Kings both finished the regular season with the fewest points in the League (71). As a result of winning fewer games (31), Tampa Bay was assigned the greatest number of combinations, representing a 25% likelihood that their combination would emerge. The Kings (32 wins) were assigned 18.8% of the combinations, followed by the Thrashers (14.2%), the Blues (10.7%) and the Islanders (8.1%). The remaining teams had the following chances: 6.2%, 4.7%, 3.6%, 2.7%, 2.1%, 1.5%, 1.1%, 0.8% and 0.5%.

Lecavialier, St Louis, Stamkos. Goood forwards but still not a great goalie.

I'm just hoping Atlanta picks up Doughty. They really need some defence.

It looks like LA will be picking up Doughty. That means they should have Thomas Hickey, Jack Johnson and Drew Doughty. Not bad 3 young d-men.

Mike Smith my teams former backup/starter for a while. Proved that he can play but lacks consistency. He's an average goalie at best right now hopefully he can turn himself into an elite goalie.
