I think they should just give us Caufield and lets us get on with it.   He is the guy!  :gocan:

NYR with the #2 and Chicago with the #3... it's almost like the NHL wants those team to get better quicker to drive up league revenue....

Like when they sent McDavid to the sh**hole that is Edmonton. Give it up already, it's tiring.

I believe zero of this "system" of theirs.

 

Whatever.  We'll still kill it and get an awesome player that nobody cares about until they hit the ice full of win.

Just would have been nice to have an extra thing to celebrate going into the offseason

we've dropped 4 times..other then phx no one has dropped more then twice 

Thank god for scouting and JB

To be honest.....

I am slightly less happier that Chicago got 3rd

than Colorado getting 4th

It is bad enough they get the 4th

 

Did I say that right?

 

MMMM...….ok, I am just not happy!

Maybe next year we barely miss the playoffs and 50 years of not being gifted a top pick adds up to a Lafreniere caliber reimbursement.

Really, who would WANT to even get drafted first anymore? Worst.

Yeah getting robbed at gunpoint on the daily and having to call insurance cause your wheels where stolen from your car again in Newark.

Don't see the benefit for the accounting firm to be in on it, they would sink if that sort of corruption were true and found out. Sorry we had and 84% chance of picking 9-12 and that is where we ended up. 

Really? There is tens of millions of dollars at stake for the NHL team winners.

 

I agree that is where odds said we should land. But the NHL has just done so many shady things over many years that it invites scrutiny. And its not like multi billion dollar companies have never tried to scam the public. I would list the examples but they are too numerous to mention.

 

I am not saying the NHL is 100% corrupt. But it sure would not surprise me. And people that say "they would never do that" are just naive imo. But whatever. We got 10th and hopefully JB finds a gem.

They have Lucic who has really taken Draistil under his wings and taught him how to spear guys in the balls. 

They could have had Prust much cheaper

This might have been answered, haven't read the thread.

 

Why don't we get to see the balls being dropped/pulled?

If you think the draft was fixed you are probably one of the people praying to your imaginary god today for a good pick.

Benefit of the league =/= benefit of Ernst & Young. If the draft was truly corrupt McDavid wouldn't be an Oiler.

This.

 

 

If the draft lottery was in any way rigged there is no ****ing chance McDavid goes to Edmonton,  and there is no way Arizona born Auston Matthews goes to Toronto.

They thought it would be inappropriate to show buttman pulling and dropping his balls.  :ph34r:
