Do you think the NHL's track record suggests this process is being conducted honestly?  This is the same criminal organization that sees fit to permit Kelly Sutherland to openly rig playoff games and put Colin Campbell in a position where there was a clear and obvious conflict of interest.

So you are saying that the NHL, the Accounting firm and the 15 teams' official reps who are present at the drawing are complicit? Conspiracy theorist much??

I think if we actually saw the selection process, reactions might not be so consipratorial. 

Every team has a rep in the room for the actual lottery, it's not some backroom process.

The most depressing thing is somehow we've dropped for 4 straight years. Somehow for 4 straight years a team or teams have had worse odds yet won anyways. Somehow we're 0/12 on lottery picks. 

 

Just mind boggling. And just incredibly sad

Why do I always feel like I need to shower and get a rape kit after the draft lottery? I hate this god damn thing. Tired of getting F'd in the A while all Bettman's darlings get the B's and J's every year. Lottery... What a bunch of Horsesh*t.

So what is it you think, exactly is happening, besides luck of the draw?

Caufield could easily be the best offensive player in the draft and he's right in the neighborhood of the Canucks pick.

To be honest I think we go for it.  Shoot for the moon.  We can pick up infinite second liners in free agency

I am pi**ed. So, the 3rd worst team gets a lotto pick. The 6th worst team gets a pick. You would think it was some sort of pattern of every third team, and that the 9th worst team would also get one. But Nooooooooo. It jumps right to the 12th worst team. Canucks luck. So maddening. And Jack Hughes - if I could read minds, he was thinking VAN. And when NJ won the 1st, it looked like it physically hurt him to crack a smile. 

 

And I guess Bettman is happy. I believe he lives in NJ and this lottery also helped out a couple of original 6 teams in the US.

I was salty when I first saw where we ended up BUT it is what it is - my new version of the draft lottery is everyone who doesnt make the playoffs gets their name in a hat and drawn that way - screw the balls/etc - do it the old fashioned way :)

For the record, this expected result does not have me questioning our late season wins or tanking. Players play the game and I want players who want to win every game. 

Players can't tank. 

 

From a management perspective I question it big time.
