1st Overall Pick...
 
If there is no season this time around, then I assume they will repeat the draft lottery like in 05. Imagine we win this lottery...I have had dreams where we picked 2nd and now had Seth Jones beside Letang and added to our already crazy deep defensive prospects pool. :laugh:

My question is:

Realistically, what draft pick number do you think we would get with out chances?

Realistically, it'd probably be between 15-20 which would make it okay. Not bad but not good. I would be happy with anything in the top 15 in such a deep draft.

The enjoyment of watching the collective heads explode on the Flyer and Ranger boards would be worth more to me than anyone we actually would draft.

Ragamuffin Gunner 09-02-2012 12:04 PM

I was thinking about that. People's heads would explode.

JTG 09-02-2012 12:11 PM

I don't want the pick...it would make this place unreadable.

You'd figure that if there was a straight lottery again, we'd have a 66% chance of getting a top 20 pick. Good odds.

I hop we get the 1st overall pick and draft MacKinnon for Crosby's wing.

Antaris 09-02-2012 02:23 PM

Rig to win Mackinnon.

In Gary we trust!


If we got a top 5 pick (hell, top 10)

If there's a lockout, Uncle Gary will OWE US bigtime. He's already set up EDM with rigged lotteries of star players. It's time to give us the next one again. Realistically no one should ever win another lottery besides the Oilers and Penguins even if we make the playoffs every year for the foreseeable future. Winning generational talents through the lottery is pretty much our right.

MacKinnon belongs with Crosby anyway since he's from Nova Scotia and gets the "next one" label already.

I like it. And Mario comes out of retirement again.

Mario- Crosby- MacKinnon
Kunitz- Malkin- Neal

Top 6 problems= solved

What if the other 29 teams die in a plane crash and the Pens are automatically awarded the Stankey Cup? Neat to think about.

What a great Sunday topic....

Not just Nova Scotia, but MacKinnon is actually from Crosby's home town of Cole Harbor - even went to the same High School to play hockey in Minnesota.

This all getting kinda scary. The stars are lining up - the NHL season is doomed, and it is absolutely improbable the Pens would not win this lottery.

For it is Nathan's destiny to rule the NHL side by side with Crosby as hockey godbrothers. The Crosby's are distantly related to Clan MacKinnon, and we all know at the heart of any great world changing event - is a Scotsman.

6 cups guaranteed baby!

And HFBoards would be blowing up every day for a decade.

Make it so Uncle Gary.

Just dug up some interesting stuff on Clan Crosby and Clan MacKinnon

Clan Mackinnon's motto is - Fortune Favors the Bold!

Clan Crosby's motto is - I Shall Rise Again!

This some pretty powerful stuff here folks.

I think we can all take from this that there will be no NHL season.

The Pens will win the Lottery.

Draft MacKinnon.

And once joined by another Scotsman as team-mates, line-mates, and soul-mates, Sid's play will rise to sites unseen since the NHL decided to outlaw offense.

The 300 point barrier will be broken for the first time in history come the 2015 season.

You read it here first people.

Since we won't actually be getting the 1st overall pick, I'm just speculating, but what would it take to trade for it?

Jacob 09-02-2012 06:10 PM

The screams of a thousand children.

Kaspar and Samuelsson also want to come back to toughen the defense :sarcasm:

My body is ready...

The conspiracy threads would flood the main board...it would be all too perfect. My soul would consume the hate and I would **** sunshine and rainbows.

More than it would be worth. Despres,morrow,Bennett 1st+2nd

Crafton 09-02-2012 08:32 PM

Seth Jones is going to be Pouliot's partner down in Portland and we all know how much Shero likes drafting the junior teammates of current prospects.

Dovahkiin 09-02-2012 08:43 PM

Because of this thread, we're gonna get a pick in the 25-30 range. Thanks guys.:sarcasm:

Because of winning the Stanley Cup, we're gonna get the 30th pick.
