Actually @CreaseAndAssist this whole NHL draft lottery disgusts me. How can in good conscious can the NHL reward a team in the playoffs (no matter how convoluted they are this year) the number #1 overall pick based on a random drawing and not due to a trade. IF I'm the Wild or any other struggling team in the supposed playoffs who have no real shot winning the cup, not think about not giving it my all in the best of 5 play in series. Why not. The wild would have an equal opportunity in gett
The lottery at it is is asinine! I have been saying it for years. And if there was a lottery that illustrates what I have been saying all along, it is this one!
It is wrong that the worst team only has an 18.5% chance at the first pick. I agree that it should NOT be a coin flip. We don't want tanking to give a team too reasonable a shot at it, because tanking sucks. I get that. But less than a one-in-five chance at it? No. That's wrong.
