I'm stressed for sure about it. Winning the lottery changes hockey in Nashville forever. Tennessean, businesses and non-hockey fans can understand and repeat often the phrase "the next Wayne Gretzky". It substantially improves attendance and, I would guess, our cup chances.

All that being said, a top 10 would be great, a bottom 10 very bad, and the middle barely tolerable. I won't pretend to be a draft expert but my sense is there isn't a huge drop between #2 and #8. Any sense of that from anyone? Anze Kopitar, for instance, certainly sounds like a player we could smile about if we landed him as a consolation prize.
