Can you imagine the Blues landing a Nathan MacKinnon or Aleksander Barkov or even Sean Monahan? That would make this entire lockout worth it IMO.
Oh wow good point. I didn't realize that the 2005 lottery balls were based on the previous three seasons.

To even land a top 10 pick would be incredible after being the 2nd best team in the West last year.

BTW, I really think the season is in serious jeopardy of being cancelled. That is the only reason I'm discussing this. I need something possibly positive to talk about.
