Well if we're going to lose (and I never hope for a loss) this one would be a lot easier to swallow than most. Washington are chasing the Leafs for 8th and we'd move down towards a higher pick in the lottery. That would be the silver lining.
Safety-wise, I really don't understand why anyone would want to play in KHL if you could make it in the NHL. It took the refs 30 secs to blow down the play and then his own team's medics don't even rush over as he's suffering. The only ppl seemingly concerned are his own teammates. KHL is bush league.
Gawd there are a lot of bad teams in the East this year, and these are two of the worst! Go habs, if we can't win games maybe we can win the lottery. Second or third overall would be a major opportunity to land a top player, either one of the Russians or your pick of a very strong D crop. A ryan suter or shea weber to play with Subban down the road... God I miss Mcdonagh.
