If they lose the last game and a couple of other teams win, the losing streak will mean a difference of 10 positions at the draft in June. That is quite substantial. Some G.M.s would trade an extra first round pick to move up 10 spots in the draft. But that also makes the pick they gave away (and I emphasize "GAVE AWAY") for Kovalev better.
Re-do your maths...

Anyway who cares about the picks. I'd have given up our pick for a worse one if we could have finished with home ice advantage.
