Nobody here wanted to tie the league record for 3 consecutive 1st overall picks. Nobody is happy with the potential of another top 5 pick if the kids don't start picking things up. I also highly doubt we get a 4th 1st overall unless the new lottery gives it to us...and hopefully we'll be placing somewhere around the 10th overall so it would be quite a jump.
I'm sure no Oilers fans WANTED this to happen, that's not the point I'm trying to make. If my team was in the running for a second straight first overall pick, I'd be avoiding these discussions like the plague, not trying to justify things.
