Draft lottery day thread 8PM NBCSN

Recommended Posts

Yeah EDM winning twice and devils twice shows it's not fixed. NHL would want the rags to win certainly not the devils

LA and Colorado got hosed much more than the Sabres did.  

But the question regarding the last 2 wins is a good one.

Another lottery where the Sabres drop back.  This lottery scheme was a fantastic idea. 🙄

Good thing we picked up those final 4 points in the season and didn’t land 3rd worst, which would’ve landed us the top pick. 

Everyone say this with me now: Butterfly Effect.

Sportsnet evidently displayed the top three ahead of time on accident. Check the time stamp of that tweet. Oops 😂

NJ # 1 pick 2 out of the last 3 seasons.  F them. We have been by far the worst team in the NHL the past 5 years.

Isn't Kaako in play at 1?

SN has us taking Zegras at 7.

No need to fuss about the last two wins - it's the massive collapse beforehand that put us in this place to begin with, nor would slightly higher odds guarantee anything.

Someone buy Jack a suit that fits.

It's hilarious how poorly fitting that thing is.

 

 

 I like it.  

Fashion is for the weak minded...

Lol wut

 

Fleecing Eugene Melnyk for a 1st rounder that unintentionally ends up being 4th overall, then gets deferred by Ottawa, then still unintentionally ends up being 4th overall?  I'll take that hose any day.

Also not mad about LA not winning.  LA won two Cups since 2011.  CHI won three Cups since 2010.

At worst I was hoping 6th... 7th might put us just out of range for the elite players.  We won’t get help for next year that’s for sure.  

3-9 or virtual pick ‘em. We’re fine.

Chicago, NYR, and NJ? Gross. Gross gross gross. 

No division rivals or teams I hate.

Both firsts and Risto for Mitch Marner.

Yes, please.  Especially some sort of Provorov with a right shot.

Every single team has a greater chance of staying the same or falling back as opposed to moving up. But by all means, think it’s a stupid system designed to screw Buffalo.
