Here's a cool draft lottery sim I found:
http://oilers.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=524450
I did it about 10 times and my results were mainly good:
Twice Edmonton Won
Twice Boston Won
Anahiem onceB's pick 2nd
NYR once (if the miss the playoffs)B's Pick 2nd
Columbus onceB's pick 3rd
Florida onceB's pick 3rd
Tampa onceB's pick 3rd
That's 70% 1 or 2! Let hope so! LOL!

From what I was looking at earlier, the #2 has not won the lottery yet. Couldn't think of a better time to change that.

Tuesday is the day...then we can all start talking about who they should pick (if they do not get #1 or #2) Oh and maybe we'll be talking about Game 1 vs Wash,NJ,Pitts,Buffalo!

Really wierd how many times I had Columbus or Florida win vs. the Bs. I mean, based on percentages of winning the lottery, it should be pretty much 70% of the time the Bruins draft 1 or 2. I must have had 40% of the wins go to teams that can bump Boston to 3. Is there a math Wiz out there who can tell me whether that's a normal statistical variance or not?

Book boy,
From what I have, the bruins have a something like a 61% chance of drafting 2 or higher by my math..I am over simplfying it but just add up the odds of the 5 teams behind them of winning and subtract from 100 since these are the teams that can bump us back with a win.. I get 61%
