ok lets say a team like (edmonton, nucks) misses the playoffs but they have a better record then a playoff team in the east. Who picks first. Like if the Nucks or oilers were to miss the playoffs would they be picking before any playoff team in the east, or could they potentially be drafting after like a #7 or #8 seed in the east if their record was better then the team in the Easts. Just wonder how that works. I'm sure it didn't make sense at all.
