Here is an idea ... they use last season's final regular season ranking with the lottery again to determine who gets the first pick. After all 30 teams have picked then the team that picked 30 also gets 31, 29 picks 32 and so on. So Wash as an example would pick first overall then 60. If Pittsburgh is 2nd they then pick 61. If Calgary wins the Stanley Cup they pick 30 and 31 and you continue this for every round.
