It's Healy. What does he know? He's an idiot.

Healy just wants something to rag on the Leafs for for the next 10 years in between his fawning over Carey Price's haircut. The Leafs will not pick Crouse.

He's such a moron.  On Kessel's wrap around he said he wouldn't even call that a scoring chance because he was behind the net, and how Price was looking the wrong way.  If Gallagher had scored that goal he would have prattled on for 10 minutes about what a special player he was, and that the "little big man" was so quick that the goalie didn't stand a chance.

McDavid has 5 goals in game 2.

The Leafs should select him if he's still available at 4.

There would have to be a HUGE 3 team brain fart for that to happen!

Brain fart doesn't even cover it... brain shart perhaps.

The G.M.s, picking ahead of us, would have to all fall out of banana trees right on their heads!

There's so many teams there that I would truly be disappointed if they win the pick.

McDavid has 15 points in 3 games against the Knights.  It's hard to watch as a Knights fan but this guy is insane.  It doesn't help that Domi's playing hurt and Marner and their starting goaltender are still out.  Pretty much makes these horrendously one-sided games.

What were the percentages under the old system? If I remember correctly, the lowest team to ever win the lottery was 7th last, right?

Those odds are insane.  Someone here posted a lottery simulator recently and it's absurd how many times it gets won by a team that has no business getting the first overall pick.  I don't know what the NHL was thinking.  If they were trying to dissuade teams from tanking, it clearly didn't work.  Instead it's quite possible it will end up rewarding a team that's quite frankly undeserving.

If I was the type who subscribed to conspiricy theories, I'd say some East Coast team, likely the Flyers or Devils, will win the thing.  Can you imagine McDavid being wasted on the Devils' fanbase?  We can all look forward to him receiving his Hart trophy in a parking lot ceremony.

But isn't that the crux of the matter? Why is the crappiest team in the league (and generally intentionally so) more deserving of this reward than a team like Dallas, LA, or Boston who tried to get into the playoffs?

I think the general idea of the draft is to distribute talent so that bad teams don't perpetually stay bad.

Pittsburgh and Chicago were both in pretty awful shape before they got Crosby & Malkin/Toews & Kane. Would there still be hockey in those markets if the draft order were reversed before those drafts happened?
