Imagine that the NHL decided to contract 6 teams to get the league to 24. The six teams contracted are: Phoenix, Florida, Atlanta, New Jersey, Columbus, Nashville.
The NHL annonces a contraction draft for the remaining 24 teams where they can pick any player from the six teams without cap ramifications (But they still have to pay their current salary). Using the current reverse standings, the Oilers would pick first
Who would the Oilers select first overall. Whoever has the highest total will be selected. Tomorrow Ottawa will make their pick and each day someone else will to determine hypotheticaly what would happen.
So from the six teams who does Edmonton take
We'll be doing this with all the 24 teams using SBnation to determine the picks. Leave the choice in the comments
*Note: I'm taking a risk assuming of these teams will aqquire anyone who would go this high in the next two days. IMO only Richards would maybe have a shot
