Can anyone explain why the first pick overall is being reserved for teams to be able to sandbag a five game series for?
Basically its so the lottery odds would be the same as they were at the beginning of the season. Detroit still had the best odds, but there were 8 placeholder teams that cumulatively had higher odds. Specifically, "Team E" was the winner of the lottery. In a way this was actually the simplest way to so it, besides just waiting for the play-in round to be over, which easily would have been the simplest solution.
...but whatever, the Blues won the Cup!!!!!
