That's probably true in the sense that other teams could possibly offer more.  OTOH Edmonton really could use a couple of guys like Phaneuf and Rielly, not to mention Kessel.  As much as I get maligned for criticizing P&K, I know (and have said so plenty of times) that they have real trade value.  If EDM had the #1 pick in hand, they would at least listen to an offer to ship them those 3.  But it might take more.

There's just no chance. If the Oilers were desperate to add to their blueline they'd shop RNH and Hall before even thinking of passing on McDavid.

Yeah, you're right.  Whoever lands the #1 is not going to part with it in any realistic trade scenario.

Do the Oilers really need McDavid?  Not as much as we need him. (natch)

Dallas wins and Colorado gets a point. That puts the Leafs in the 10 spot.

Wow, did you ever put a lot of work in that table!  Thanks.

I would also note that Ottawa is 3 points back with 2 games at hand and Minnesota is 4 points back with 3 games at hand.  In a few days the Leafs could land in 8th place.

Ah, there we sit, in the sweet spot of eternal frustration ... just south of mediocrity, but nowhere near the tankocracy.

Columbus, Philly and Minny are all teams that could realistically finish ahead of us.

Maybe Ottawa too....

Whatever Karma chips I've banked, I'm putting them all in to winning the lottery.

The Leafs will either win the lottery, or whatever team that finished one spot higher in the standings will. Those are really the only two possibilities.

Either that, or they keep Nonis around and draft Lawson Crouse.
