Yup

Signed first contract at age 20 (April 19, 2013), making him exempt for 3 years (13/14-15/16) or 160 NHL games.

as much as i'd hate it, i wonder what kinda backlash and rule changes would happen if the coilers win 1st overall again

Coilers basically killed the marketing careers of so many first/ top 5 picks.

If I were the NHL I wouldn't want to keep giving them the next generation player and let them rot in Edmonton.

They should change the rule regardless of the Coilers winning or not.

When they do the actual draft why does it take place behind closed doors? (Or am I wrong about that) Things like that always lead me to believe that the "fix" is in.

HOW DO I KNOW IT'S NOT RIGGED? The number-drawing process is supervised by accounting firm Ernst & Young

The lottery will be this Saturday. It takes place behind closed doors but many representatives from the league and teams will attend. Teams are assigned a series of number combinations based on their % of winning the first overall pick. 1001 combinations are possible with 1 causing a re-draw.

This video shows the process during last year's lottery: http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/console?id=810726

Apparently its the first time since 1983 that it has happened.
But this might be the first time that the next round starts BEFORE the previous round is finished.

Based on the games listed in 1983, sounds like the previous round game was in the East and started first, and the next round game was in the West and started second.

Today, the second round game has started already, but the first round game doesn't start until 7pm.
