Default 2020 NHL Draft

I know I'm starting this waaaay too early, but was trying to figure this out.

We get Vancouver's first round this year if they make the playoffs, or next year if they do not? So lottery protected this year, no protection next year???

So, if that's the case, we want them to miss the playoffs so we have a chance at a lottery pick next year?

Yeah, you want the weird scenario where we end up with a #1 overall pick because a GM agreed to an open-ended pick stipulation that no GM should ever agree to because weird scenarios like that do happen and said GM ends up the punch line of sports trivia jokes forever.

They’re pretty firmly in contention for the postseason though. I guess stranger things have happened.

I don't know how firm their position really is. They're really on the bubble along with four other teams in the Pacific Division.
