Maybe I've missed a post on this, but what happens if the mini playoff thing doesn't go ahead, or is cancelled? It's not like they can re-draw this scenario...?

The following post in that thread outlines which teams qualify (the Leafs juuuust don't quite qualify as bad enough).

I like this kid and he might be available in our slot (#38 on Bob’s list)
Very approximately a right shot Finnish Sandin that got lots of Liiga games at 17

Younger half of the draft class and low boxcar stats could help him fly under the radar.

So what happens if the Leafs lose the play in but also don't get the first pick? We're still out of the top 10 right?

Gotcha. So ideally the leafs get bounced in the play-in and the season limps across the finish line. Yesno?

Looks like the very best the Leafs could get would be 11th. That assumes an upset in every single play-in round and a team with a worse points percentage than Toronto also winning the second lottery. So it's 1st or bust.

We ain't losing no play-in, CBJ going down in two (the incessant offensive barrage causing them to forfeit early).

I didn't realize that Ottawa also has the Isles 1st rounder, barring Isles win the lottery - then it moves to next year.

And they've got 4 second round picks. 

That's a lot of early picking.

One of the few things Dorian as done well for the sens is acquiring picks and prospects once the team actually embraced the rebuild. He got super lucky with the 1st from San Jose, but, otherwise, he's been pretty good about adding picks in the first couple rounds.

If Leafs don't win the lottery where does Carolina get the pick?  13?

13th or 14th, depends on if a team above or below the Leafs in the standings wins.

I'm assuming they are going to do the draft thing the same way they do the usual draft

List teams as they count down to #1.  Given how this playoff thing run I'm expecting the Leafs to get 2nd.   So not only do we not get Lafreniere but we also lose our draft pick to Carolina.

I believe someone said that Bettman will be plucking the lottery balls out live on TV.

They must be using weighted balls to fix it live on TV for the Leafs.
