There looks to be some phenomenal talent in this draft class and I would love to see the Leafs take full advantage of it.
You can guarantee a top five pick by being one of the four worst teams in the league. The lottery only moves someone into the #1 slot and moves other teams down one slot if necessary.

Please not that my posting in this thread in no way indicates any willingness to cheer for my team to lose.
