If my choices are no season and a top 5 pick, or a half season and a Cup, obviously I'll take the cup. However, if my choices are top 5 pick or half season with another 2nd round exit, I'll take the pick.
I'll take a 48 game (or whatever) season. I trust our team on the ice more than our chances on a lottery!

Plus, it would be important for the building of the team going forward; like whether Stewart has a future in St. Louis and whether to offer Lehterä a deal. No season puts us in a really awkward position.

I really never understood why it was a snake draft. It was like they wanted to pretend 1/60/61/120 is similar to picking 30/31/90/91. It should have been if you picked first in the first round, you picked last in every other round. Not that closes the gap, but it is at least slightly more fair.
