When the lottery came up and Edmonton won many fans, like myself, felt bad for CBJ fans as they deserved ti have their pick of the draft for 1st overall.

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.
