from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,
Detroit currently is 24th place overall, which would give them the ninth best lottery odds. If Detroit stay there, it would have a five percent chance of picking Bedard at No. 1. The team would have a 5.4% shot at picking No. 2 overall. The most likely result: Drafting 9th overall. If the standings don’t change, they have a 64.4% chance of getting that No. 9 pick, a 23.5% shot at picking 10th and a 1.7% chance of falling to 11th....
Most teams would be happy to land the No. 2-rated player , Adam Fantilli, a 6-foot-2 forward from the University of Michigan. He recently won the Hobey Baker as college hockey’s best player.
But the draft lottery odds are far from settled. If Detroit loses Tampa Bay in regulation, and Washington beats New Jersey, then the Red Wings would fall into 25th place.
A Red Wings win could also potentially pass both St Louis & Vancouver to end up in 11th position
