Let's be positive. Our remaining games this month are OTT-PHI-FLA-NYR-WAS. All teams trying to improve their position in the standings and crucial game for WAS.
I found this bit of research (didn't check if accurate):
Looks like in the past decade, the last team in the standings won the lottery LESS than 50% of the time. We have a 1 in 5 chance to pick 1st. If we pick 3rd or 4th, BPA is still going to be a major contributor in 2-3 years. That player would be on an inexpensive ELC and we can always get experience on the UFA market.
I really hope the Habs don't trade that pick for some so-called impact player in their late 20's early 30's who might not be a good fit in this city. I'd rather see us build a new identity around homegrown prospects for once.
