Sure, go ahead. It's not going to carry any more weight than your other post did.

No we haven't.

We've gotten one top five pick in 25 years and it came via the lottery. So I'm not sure what makes you think that we can suddenly do this now without having that draft position to begin with.

?

Dude, fact of the matter is that we're sitting here two points behind Carolina and aren't far behind the Islanders. We're close to the Oilers as well and we play ALL these teams.

Absolutely we could pass them.

I'm sorry but this post is flat out stupid. There's absolutely no benefit to having a lower pick. None. All that happens there is that you give other teams the benefit of picking in front of you.

Nobody said Timmins was perfect. But to sit there and try to insinuate that we'd be better off with a lower pick makes no sense.
