    How will th draft be done? Will all the teams be put into a lottery, and done that way, or will it be determined by last seasons results? Just wondering what would be the better way to do it. Personally, I think that the lottery would be a better idea.

    I believe they've already stated a lottery would absolutely not happen.
    Possibly have one large draft? A combination of the 2005, and 2006 draft class would definitely rejuvenate basically all prospect pools, as essentially the first round would be deep until the 45th pick...

    I really can't pretend to know, I don't think they've decided, theyre is still a chance that the NHL starts up after Christmas or something, which would mean business as usual for the draft, however I think that the draft should always be a lottery, even with the Cup winner, and other playoff teams having a "shot" at the top pick, even if it's only a .5% chance. It'd be interesting to see every round chosen by lottery as well, or even just switch it so the guy who picked first, picks 30th in the 2nd round, and first in the 3rd round, and then 30th in the 4th round. That way it evenly distributes talent (kind of...)

    I can't see them NOT having a draft if a CBA is in place. That would be unfair to all the players like Brule and Crosby to push back their development a whole year.
