DEVILS WIN #1 PICK ****2017 Draft Lottery Thread


Recommended Posts

With the way the season has gone I expect us to end up with 6th, 7th or 8th. I hope I'm wrong and we get some luck tonight. 


The Devils have an 8.5 percent chance of winning the first overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft Lottery after finishing tied for the third fewest points in the NHL. They will be guaranteed a top-eight pick in June's NHL Draft.

They tied the Arizona Coyotes in the final standings with 70 points, but the Coyotes received higher odds based on regulation and overtime wins. The Devils won 25 in regulation or overtime, while the Coyotes won only 24.

Along with the Devils' 8.5 percent chance at the top pick, they have an 8.7 percent chance at the second pick and an 8.8 percent chance at the third pick.

The Devils cannot pick fourth, and they have a 7.2 percent chance at the fifth pick. They have a 33 percent chance a the sixth pick, a 28.7 percent chance at the seventh pick and a 5.2 percent chance at the eighth pick.
