This is getting to be a bit of a mantra (if not quite an obsession) for me, but I think we have to wait and see.

Until the format for the draft lottery is announced, we are just going around in circles guided by the latest scoop from some media outlet.

But here is what I would consider a harsh reality. No matter what system is adopted, there is very little chance that the Leafs (or any particular team) will get to draft Crosby. At best, our odds would be one-in-thirty. Correct?

(I am ignoring Messenger's theory that things will blow up entirely and the Leafs will somehow acquire Sidney, post-apocaypse. If the apocalypse happens,all bets are off).

Personally, I would be quite thrilled to have even a top ten pick.
