I don't have a huge problem with that much of a chance for the number 1 pick, since it's a guarantee that a good team that happened to have a bad year will under no circumstances land someone like a McDavid or even an Eichel.
Doh, apologies you are correct on the total percent.
Still, wrt to the "good team/bad year landing a super star" concern, I would rather there be a random chance of that occurring (even if it's more likely, it's harder for a team to shoot for it), then a pretty heavy mathematical advantage to tanking. In the old and current system you are still guaranteed to finish no worse then second. I say re-seed all non playoff teams with those new tables for the first round, but this change is pretty good too.
Love this change, didn't even know it's on their radar. I've always hated how you could secure yourself a better draft position by losing, it presents teams with a potential conflict of interest. This is a pretty good compromise between helping the teams who need it the most and just doing a complete random draft for the 14 teams on the outside.
I liked the old system, where the best you could do was move up four spots.
You liked the system where finishing last netted you a 75% to retain the number 1 pick?
