    If a team were to fold, how would the NHL hold its dispersal draft? Would each team have an equal shot at the #1 pick or would they use the same method as the entry draft, basing it on the previous year's standings?

    No one knows - it has never happened before.

    The closest thing was when the Cleveland Baron's merged with the Minnesota Nort Stars in 1978. IIRC, there was not any type of dispersal draft.
