The team is too good to get first overall. The only way they can is if the season is cancelled and they get lucky in the next lottery draft.

No GM in Toronto, where the pressure is huge and the franchise is worth a billion will be hired to finish 30th. Get that fantasy out of your heads.
we've tried for 40 years to do something other then draft and develop our own team and has failed I think it's time for a differents of opinion.

however you don't need to finish in last and win the lottery to get great prospects.

alot of great prospects get picked just outside of 1st overall like Rielly, Galchenyuk, Murray, Schiefele, Strome, Huberdeau, Landeskog, Larsson, Couturier, Seguin, Johansson, Skinner, Duchene, Kane, OEL.

some of those will bust no doubt as there's no gaurentee like alot of people like to point out but alot of those probably will be qualty NHL players.
