1st - 25.0% - Florida Panthers
2nd - 18.8% - Colorado Avalanche
3rd - 14.2% - Tampa Bay Lightning
4th - 10.7% - Nashville Predators
5th - 8.1% - Edmonton Oilers
6th - 6.2% - Carolina Hurricanes
7th - 4.7% - Calgary Flames
8th - 3.6% - Buffalo Sabres
9th - 2.7% - Philadelphia Flyers
10th - 2.1% - Dallas Stars
11th - 1.5% - New Jersey Devils
12th - 1.1% - Phoenix Coyotes
13th - 0.8% - Winnipeg Jets
14th - 0.5% - Columbus Blue Jackets
This was updated yesterday (the 26th) so the teams may not be in the right order, but the percentages are right and the Sabres are still in the 8th slot.


Sucks for us that Minnesota won, but you've got to take what you can get and getting slightly better odds plus having Philly move in the standings is still really good for the Sabres. All in all, considering some of the 'tank' jobs we've hoped for in past years, the 8th pick in this loaded draft is a great consolation prize.
