Not many stars in the bunch, sure, but 16 guys who played 400+ games in the NHL. That's not exactly just a bunch of fringe players - those are legit NHL players. 8 players drafted in the 5th round or later played 250+ games, which is an excellent return on late round picks.

The lack of high level talent is disappointing, yeah, but the Leafs still produced a solid number of guys that had legit NHL careers.

Gunnarsson was the only real top 4D.
Think a case could be made for Stralman too.

Yeah, missed him.

That we promptly traded away (I will never get over the Steen trade).

Yeah, that part's not great, but, at least the amateur scouts were doing their jobs relatively well. The pro scouts and the GMs, however....

I hate reading those draft articles knowing the Leafs aren't picking.

There's a part of me that wants as-of-yet unidentified teams to win all the possible lotteries.

If it ends up being like Arizona, Carolina, and Minnesota I'll love the pure chaos idea of it. If it's Chicago/Edmonton, Montreal/Pittsburgh, and NYI/Florida I'll regret cheering for it.

Amazing. Did anyone catch what the odds were of that happening?

I’m just stoked Ottawa lost
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

Ah that's actually a lot higher than I thought. What a weird system.
