    OK, the order of the first 17 picks is set, with NYI, NSH and STL all eliminated.

    After that:

    (1) Is the cup winner still seeded 30th?

    (2) Is the Cup finalist seeded 29th (I thought I read this might be a change, not sure if it was put in place for this year)?

    (3) Are the division winners still seeded 25-30th(or 24-29th or 23-28th depending on if either/both of the aformentioned 2 rules are in place, and also depending on which 2 teams make the Cup final)?

    Thanks for any help!!!

    OK, I did some more digging, and eventually answered my own question unless the NHL has changed the rules from last year unbeknownest to me.

    - Cup winner seeded 30th

    - last year the finalist wasn't seeded 29th, no idea if that is changing for this year, I'd assume not since I haven't heard anything about it.

    - division winners are seeded 25-30, or 24-29th, depending on who wins the Cup.

    Thus the draft order is:

    1.Washington*
    2.Pittsburgh*
    3.Chicago*
    4.Columbus*
    5.Phoenix*
    6.NYR*
    7.Florida*
    8.Carolina*
    9.Anaheim*
    10-Atlanta*
    11.Los Angeles*
    12.Minnesota*
    13.Buffalo*
    14.Edmonton*
    15.NYI*
    16.Nashville*
    17.St.Louis*
    18.Montreal
    19.Calgary
    20.Dallas
    21.Colorado
    22.New Jersey
    23.Ottawa
    24.NYR(from TOR)

    division winners:

    25.Edmonton(from PHI)
    26.Vancouver
    27.Washington(from BOS)
    28.San Jose
    29.Tampa Bay
    30.Washington(from DET)

    DAL, NJD, VAN, WASH - thru BOS, and OTT will pick no worse than where they currentely are in the first round, and could move up assuming a team below them in the final standings wins the Cup.

    * = confirmed, barring future trades

    Thanks speeds for clearing this up.

    In almost every mock draft I've seen so far, its had Philly's pick (traded to Edmonton) in the 23rd or 24th spot, however it looks like the only way they'd pick at 24 is if Calgary, Colorado or Montreal wins it all (unlikely IMHO), and there's no way they'll pick 23rd.

    I know you were just talking about the first round, but for anyone who's still unclear:

    This also applies for all subsequent rounds.


    This only applies to the first round.
