Arizona quietly picking up steam in the Sweepstakes. They're in third place right now, only 7 points behind awful Edmonton. Let the conspiracy theories begin.

If only they weren't 5-0 this year against Edmonton… go 3-2 and they're only one point apart.

Playoff hopes dwindling for the Bruins, maybe they can draft Connor McDavid and then trade him in two years for Ian Cole, Steve Ott, and a 2020 first.

Hope the Flyers start tanking more. This team is lifeless

I'm a actually cool with the Bruins tanking for McDavid, or better yet, Eichel or Hanfin, since they're good old Massachusets boys! :P

As per that proposed trade of yours; if that were to actually happen, I would flip a googleplex of tables.

Maybe Carolina... he & Skinner could be the new Toews & Kane.

Except I'm not sure the hundreds of Hurricane fans will be enough.

If by new Toews and Kans you mean McDavid equalling the offensive output of the 2 and Skinner being injured and diving all game they could for sure be the new Toews and Kane.

The Leafs aren't looking to good atm so I'm hoping they make a run at a top 3 pick.

Buffalo is back in second place in the Sweepstakes due to having more games out-of-hand than Carolina.

I'm told that the Sabres are back in first place in the Sweepstakes due to tiebreakers... all they had to do was go 0-10! You put up a heck of a fight, Edmonton, but we'll take it from here.

The Leafs are a point up on Columbus and the Jackets have 3 games at hand. That should force the Leafs to bottom 5 and then hopefully claw their to the bottom 3 or win the lottery. A guy can dream.

Toronto would be the perfect lottery winner with Buffalo finishing 2nd: the Canadian city gets the Canadian, the American city gets the American, the league's co-flagship franchise gets the generational player, a team that's still pretty important in the grand scheme of things gets a player who's still really good in the grand scheme of things.

We don't live in a perfect world so he'll just end up in goddamn Raleigh.

My exact thoughts. The bitter hate that already exists between the two cities, then add in the McDavid vs Eichel rivalry. It really would be something special. Despite my hate for them, I really do feel the league is better off with Buffalo being a strong franchise as far as standings go.

We all know Buffalo won't win this thing... they never win anything.

Tonight's a great Oilers-Leafs matchup... I might even tune in.

There's bitter hate between Toronto and Buffalo? Like, just in general? Going both ways? Why, though?

If/when the Sabres finish last, they have an 80% chance of getting Eichel. The draft odds were also flattened out, giving the less bad teams a better shot at #1. We could see it come into play this year.

They're Buffalo's little brother that grew up and now outshines the big brother that became a meth head and steals money off the parents' dresser.

I was actually surprised to see somebody hate Buffalo, too. We really couldn't be more innocuous! I "hate" Toronto in the friendly sports way. It's a cool city and Buffalonians consider themselves honorary Canadians. We had the first American Tim Hortons! Do we not all watch the same African Lion Safari commercials (off Hwy 8 between Hamilton and Cambridge)? We're so friendly, we have a Friendship Festival! We keep our side of the Falls crappy so that we don't upstage yours! Buffalo's homeless wear the clothes that Canadians generously leave in our mall parking lots! I want to beat them more than other teams, but they would be my second pick to win the Cup.

Even when they lose...they still lose.

That could happen.

Finishing last is about guaranteeing Eichel, with the possibility of a surprise upgrade to concierge-level McDavid.

The worst team only has a 20% chance at McDavid.

Hamilton would like to be involved, but they're stuck in the middle.

The Kings have a 3.5% chance at McDavid right now, as crazy as that sounds... how mad would the NHL be if they managed to narrowly miss the playoffs, pull a 2008 Bulls and win the lottery? B)
