Even after an 0-7-1 start in 2009-2010, we only ended up a few points away from awarding Boston with a pick out of the top 5. Had we managed 4 more wins that season, so just one more win every 6 weeks, Boston would be picking Burmistrov. Like you have to be really bad, and we just don't ever seem to be really bad enough.
The way you used the example how Toronto was maybe 4 more wins from not giving Boston a top 5 pick in 2010, one year before Toronto was at least 1 more loss from getting the 5th pick in 2009 (Brayden Schenn) and instead they ended up with the 7th over pick (Nazem Kadri) because they won their last game of that season vs Ottawa.
