If we win we will end up 7th likely and the guy we want may be there at 4th so Burke will have to package up a lot of talent to move up 3 spaces...

So we basically lose players and good ones just to win a game...

Puts the rebuild back not forward

with the leafs luck he will be a bust anyways. Even if we win the lottery and get Yakupov.. he would probably turn in to a Daigle for us.

1) Drafts and Draft Talent are mutually exclusive
2) Kadri is currently playing at the same pace as him despite being up and down throughout the better part of 2 seasons

I don't see how it's possible to actually lose to the Habs with the way they are playing right now.

Maybe if we kidnap Scrivens for a day?

Of course you would because you have zero integrity. The NHL imposes rules against purposefully losing and that's why the lottery was undertaken after Ottawa flopped on purpose for Alexandre Daigle.

I blame Phil Kessel. If he didn't score so many points, we wouldn't even be talking about THIS game - we'd have #1 overall locked up a while ago. I hate him so much. He makes me cry. I'm going to start a thread about it.

Seguin, Hamilton, Knight, Yakupov for Kessel + 7th overall...

add MacKinnon too. I blame Kessel for us not getting him next year.

I also blame Kessel for the Rask trade.

Best case scenario, Leafs loose in regulation and NYI win. we fall to 4th overall guaranteeing one of Yakupov, Girgorenko, Galchenyuk or Forsberg

Okay I already had one thread like this and it was closed. Same fate for this one and let me repeat. NO TEAMS OR PLAYERS in the league should be allowed LOSE on PURPOSE. If they do they should be banned from the sport, a fanbase can want a tank but not the players as their integrity is put on stake. Regardless if you want to complain about this, please do so in the Tank thread, as well any other poster with same idea of this thread will be infracted.

Closed.
