100% incontrovertible evidence it was fixed

So the 15 GM’s in the room including the ones getting the shaft and the independent accounting firm that does the lotto are in on it? Sorry not rigged, we had an 84% chance of picking 9-12. We got 10 sounds like it checks out to me.

Of course it wasn't fixed. Rich people don't scam or cheat!!

Holy crap Dach is just dominating at both ends of the ice.  Wouldn't mind moving up a bit to make sure we get him, which wouldn't cost nearly as much as the top 3.

I'm on the fence with Dach he has a Kyle Beach vibe to him.

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.

I'd be a lot more bitter right now if we weren't developing talent the right way and also hadn't improved our drafting. 1st overall picks are nice but the Coilers are a perfect example of what happens when you don't develop your young players properly and have some leadership on and off the ice to guide them.

I honestly don't think there's a huge discrepancy between 1-10 this year.  Neither Hughes nor Kakko are going to be generational players, maybe not even frnchise players and there's at least 4-5 behind them who could easily be better picks.

I tend to agree - with the exception of Bowen - he sounds like the true cream of the crop for D men this year.

I definitely think the NHL is missing an opportunity here for more fan engagement - I'd love to see the draft lottery live instead of Daly flipping those stupid cards.

But #1 is drawn first off, then 2, then 3 etc.  Where's the drama in that?

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.
