sure but the oilers are pretty much set for the 2nd seed in the conference.. so for all we know they might rest some ppl for the playoff.. and who knows what the flames will do lol they could tank for a higher pick.

Oilers could claim top spot in the division still. They have 3 of their last 5 games vs the Canucks. McDrasaitl are good for 2 goals on a bad night and if they get offense elsewhere they're scoring 4+ at least.

 

I doubt the Flames tank. Their schedule is pretty lax so it's not like they'll have to rotate guys. They play the Jets today(technically today) then have 3 days off, play the Senators then have 3 days off and then play the Canucks and have 3 days off. If MTL $&!#s the bed they have a shot at the playoffs too. If they're eliminated they at most play youngsters in for fringe players which is still better than our roster. Half our players are either rookies or fringe players. We've got so many regulars out.

 

Have faith, we are probably drafting top 8. Hop aboard the tank, there's room.

Last nights loss should be it but still not mathematically out. One more loss... Hoping for no more than 6 points the rest of the season... that and a little luck in the lottery.

I wondered today, would having Beagle made a difference? Looking from all aspects including leadership and pride / backbone that he shows every game. 

 

I don't think Rousel would have made a difference but I do wonder about beagle...

So IF we land 1OA, who ya guys taking?

Powers, Clarke, Beniers.....................all 3 are talked about regularly as #1

 

Hughes, Johnson, Eklund, Guenthier, Edvinsson are the next tier

 

McTavish, Sillinger, Coronato, Lucius, Lysell, Svechkov, Ceulemens, Raty

 

with Cossa and Wallstedt breaking into the top 16 somewhere. pushing 2 down (top 18)

 

By Need

 

Too High........only if we win 1 or 2 in the lottery

#1 Clarke

#2 Beniers

------------

Too Low..........only if we trade down

#12 Ceulemens

#16 Svechkov

 

These are the players I actual want............like, all 4 of them :picard:

I think it makes too much sense for Seattle to "win" the draft lottery. Think about it from Bettmans perspective.

 

1. It is a great story. Newest team takes 1st overall!

 

2. It immediately trolls Canucks fans who have been waiting 50 years.

 

3. It adds insult to injury to the Canucks themselves who the league still holds a grudge against.

 

Its like the triple crown win for Count Chocula.

Does anyone know how and why Tankathon lists us as 7th?

 

It seems most of the sims I've done put us around 7th. A freaking one percent chance Dallas got first overall in one sim, and Arizona (forfeited first round pick) also.

 

I know there's more games to go, so maybe we will fall more in the standings when those are completed.

Tankathon goes by % pts/gm.  Not total points.

was just checking the TSN info again, one scout claiming Clarke has "genius" level hockey IQ. Wouldn't that be nice to get.

 

My wish list order would be:

1st round:

Clarke

Wallstedt

 

2nd round:

Boucher - big RW (like the family history and toughness angle - we need that), maybe some potential to move up if we lose/trade Brock down the road

Logal Mailloux - more right side d depth
