First off fans do run much less play on the team. I assume leaf player have some dignity and they dont want to lose on purpose to "win" the draft. And yes ive read your boards.


Second it take a lot more than Mackinnon/Jones/Drouin/Barkov to beat Boston/Philly et al. In fact several thing will have to happen for those roles to reverse.

Im also curious since TO fans have been selling the whole "tank to rebuild in order to win" philosophy is how many team have won a cup doing.

Im genuinely curious because i cant think of any. Even Chicago who is/was the flavour of the day for successful team building needed more than the draft.
