    Does anyone know the odds for entry drafts in past years? Meaning, the system the NHL instored a few years ago giving lower teams in standings more favorable odds, i.e.:

    30th overall = 15%
    29th overall = 10%
    28th overall = 8%
    and so forth...

    Does anyone know the exact formula for this from previous years?

    Can't seem to find this info anywhere.

    Are you referring to the lottery draft? This should answer your question:

    This means that only the 5 worst teams had a shot at the #1 pick giving the worst team a 48.2% chance of keeping it.
