I would have said the same thing that Howson said "We got the guy we wanted" whether or not we did. Losing the draft lottery was one of the larger disappointments in franchise history. Sounds like Ryan Murphy was pretty good pick too though.
On the good side, NY Rangers and LA Kings only got 1 point between them last night and both were at home. I can't imagine Rangers missing playoffs, but they're on the right track after playing 5 of first 7 games at home. LA has 8 of their next 9 games on the road. They could bury themselves in the standings now.
If we get three top 14 picks out of this hell bent season (and 3 chances at #1 overall pick), it would be good step forward for this franchise.
