The Sabres 'bĂȘte noire' has come back to haunt them. This pantload had no problem over the years with the tanking of the Pens, Hawks, Bolts, Panthers, Flyers, Thrashers, and the perennial tankers of all time--the Oilers. But now that the Sabres look like they might get a high draft pick or two over the next two or three years this cockamammy commish gets it in his head that the whole system has to change. This is not paranoia- this guy dislikes the Sabres and goes out o f his way to screw them. He is afraid that the Sabres might rise again from the ashes as happened in '05 and '06. It really bothered the league that Buffalo was pounding the Flyers, Bruins, Pens, and everybody else in sight when they were supposed to have a ragtag team of youngsters and castoffs from other teams. Now that the Sabres have joined the usual suspects, Oilers and Panthers, in the cellar, the league is twisting itself into a pretzel trying to figure how the bottom feeders should not profit. They are considering some kind of a 5 year average plan so that it would be possible for the sixth team from the bottom to pick first. :snooty: :doh:

They changed the daft lottery last year to include all non-playoff teams able to draft first overall.

Not just the bottom five anymore.

The present lottery is for first place weighted for the worst teams, and , except for the lottery winner, no team loses more than one level. Now they are considering placing the second to the fifth pick in a similar lottery so that the worst team could pick sixth instead of at worst second. They are also considering using a five year average in the equation. Don't tell me that Bettman isn't the turban in the Sabres punch bowl.

You find a source outside of those fools and maybe this has some weight to it.

Regardless, the NHLPA, and Board of Governors has to approve any and all CBA changes and rules. Bettman works for the owners, if he would push this through they would not keep him around.

Sabrenoise is not a credible source. Ever.

2016 draft lottery will draw for the first three picks. The bottom team will at worst get the 4th pick. Is there any chance that Edmonton could win all three? I assume that the winner for #1 will be removed from the #2 drawing but with 'no goal Bettman' you never know. Nobody except Sabre fans seem to care that the winning goal for the '99 Stanley hasn't been scored yet. Bettman claimed that there was a 'double secret' memorandum that said it was ok to follow the puck into the crease-except the puck came out of the crease while he was still in it. Even Dean Wormer wouldn't buy Bettman's BS. There are lies, damn lies, and Bettman explanations.
