I hope CBJ wins. They deserve it. I'm just thinking about how pissed I would have been if we ended up getting bumped to the 2nd pick in '09. Especially 3 years later when JT has put some distance between himself and Hedman/Duchene... IMO it's only right that the Jackets get Yakupov.
That and we don't end up getting bumped to the 5th pick for the 2nd year in a row.
Edmonton winning would actually be a great scenario, second only to the Isles of course. First off, hboards would go crazy how unfair it is which would be hilarious to read. Second, I gotta think these would be the likely picks:
Which leaves Ryan Murray to fall directly into our laps at #4. And Toronto fans whining like crazy because they didn't get a center.
Based on the odds, it's more likely that the worst team WON'T retain that top spot (conversely). It's been a few years since the worst team was unseeded, so we are due. That said, the hockey gods don't look favorably on this franchise, and Wang has a ton of ****** karma coming his way with how he operates this team.
