I was talking to my roommates the other night about Crosby's draft year. Does anybody know how draft positions would be decided for 2005 NHL entry draft if the entire 2004-2005 season was locked out? I assume that in order for the draft to happen, a CBA would have to be in effect, however, let's say that the new CBA is signed sometime between April and July 1st, 2005. Would a new lottery be done with the same positioning as for the 2004 Entry draft? Would a completely random lottery including every team having the same chance at 1st pick be held? It'd be kinda scary if the team that got Ovechkin were to pick 1st and snatch Crosby in 2005. Anyone know what would happen in this situation?
