That's an apples to oranges comparison. We might draft the wrong guy, but that's different from not being in a position to draft him anyway because we're out of the elite player range.

Every loss in the next week could pay huge dividends for the next decade. So, yes, I am actively rooting against the Preds for the remainder of the season.

Every single Cup winner since the lockout has had at least one top 3 pick (pretty much an elite player) contributing for them.

Except one - Detroit, and considering that we're yet to match Detroit's budget or attractiveness as a destination for FA's - if we want a cup we probably should get a top 3 pick.

And what better chance than this year?
