The lottery for the next NHL draft took place earlier this week. This year's lottery was particularly important as the next superstar, Connor Bedard, is expected to be the first pick.

Despite the event's significance this year, some insiders found the format to be rather dull.
Two former NHL players, who are now analysts, gave their review of the show and shared their ideas on what they would change if they were in charge.

Major Proposals to Overhaul the Draft Lottery Revealed

During a TV presentation, Guillaume Latendresse and Antoine Roussel shared their views on the lottery.
"We could make changes to the show's format. I'd like to see something more dynamic than just watching Bill Daly flip a sign. We could have witnessed the tumbler that we saw in the photos live. It would have been thrilling to watch the ball come out on television. We need to make the event more dynamic in 2023."

"We live in an era where we crave transparency. For me, it would be intriguing to showcase the behind-the-scenes activities. They certainly employ competent mathematicians. It would be interesting to see how the odds change as the ranks of the teams are determined."

"They could even take breaks and give people an opportunity to place sports bets. We need to generate more interaction with viewers. That's the beauty of sports. The concept clearly needs revision, and it requires creative minds."

The event is too significant to remain as mundane as it currently is. Any change would be an improvement. It seems like the NHL is reluctant to alter things in a way that would please the audience. They persist in making it about themselves and disregard the desires of the fans.
What do you think? Should the concept be reconsidered?
