If I understand this correct, the NHL has created a system for this year that would give eight teams (including the Wild) incentive to immediately and viciously tank their opening "playoff" series. All right, I guess.

    1. The No. 1 pick in the 2020 NHL Draft will be determined by the Second Phase of the NHL Draft Lottery after the results of the First Phase on Friday.

      The team will be one of the eight that are eliminated from the Stanley Cup Qualifiers and will be determined by a second drawing to be held before the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Each of the eliminated teams will have a 12.5 percent chance of winning the No. 1 pick.

      I'm less sure of the Wild's involvement, but I really don't understand much of any of it. And it's not for lack of trying.
