We need to lose all 3 to fall as low as 4th.2016 NHL Draft LotteryBeginning in 2016, the Draft Lottery will be utilized to assign the top three drafting slots in the NHL Draft, an expansion over previous years when the Draft Lottery was used to determine the winner of the first overall selection only.Three draws will be held: the 1st Lottery draw will determine the Club selecting first overall, the 2nd Lottery draw will determine the Club selecting second overall and the 3rd Lottery draw will determine the club selecting third overall.As a result of this change, the team earning the fewest points during the regular season will no longer be guaranteed, at worst, the second overall pick. That club could fall as low as fourth overall.The allocation of odds for the 1st Lottery draw will be the same as outlined above for the 2015 NHL Draft Lottery. The odds for the remaining teams will increase on a proportionate basis for the 2nd Lottery draw, based on which Club wins the 1st Lottery draw, and again for the 3rd Lottery draw, based on which Club wins the 2nd Lottery draw.The 11 Clubs not selected in the Draft Lottery will be assigned NHL Draft selections 4 through 14, in inverse order of regular-season points.Who didn't know that...?You? I figured it has been common knowledge for at least the past year.

I didn't know that. But I'm secure enough in my ignorance to admit it.

The odds adjust by virtue of there being one less team in the pool per lottery. Each team's ball count stays the same, but the total number of balls is reduced as the lottery winner's balls are removed.

I thought there was some other kind of weighting going on.

Wouldn't they just simply remove all the combinations from the winning team(s)? That's why the 29th place team has only a 13.5% chance in the first round, but then up to 20% or so in the second round (if the 30th place wins the first).

Sorry if this was answered but didn't see it. So in round two. do the Leafs get the first pick in round 2? Or do they go to where they landed in lottery. Ie. if we pick 4th do we then pick 34th?
