Anyway, Boston is an outlier in many respects here. I am all for acquiring Leafs 1st rounders in trades, but they fact they nailed 3 out of 3 is a statistical anomaly.

Nice new avatar.
Can't claim credit for making it but thanks!

7pts is pretty far down the chain. Boston won the cup without needing to tank, they will likely be a contender for a long time because they got toronto's rebuild picks though. Seguin & Hamilton will keep them strong even after Chara retires.

At the draft I would've been very tempted to swap picks with the leafs for the right to swap 1sts again one time in the next 3 years.
