Read what he said again.

The BJs could very well end up the better team after a lottery draft but to suggest that they will be able to find more talent in 1 draft than the Oilers did in 3 with the best picks in each of those drafts is crazy.

First of all, if the BJs get MacKinnon their second round pick basically becomes a third round pick, their 4th becomes a 5th, their 6th a 7th. Next, his premise of acquiring more firsts sounds simple but who trades a pick that could become first overall? Or in a draft that is expected to be much deeper than normal? The BJs aren't exactly flush in NHL talent they can sell without opening holes in their roster.

It would be sweet revenge from the last lottery for the Alberta teams to be on top.
