You sound as though it was a sure thing Homer would pick one. Outside of the first overall, there's nothing forcing Homer to go D. Actually, I'm sure Homer would go against ALL draft experts and scouts and skip over Jones at #1.

As much as I want a top Draft Pick it is great to see them playing so well the last couple of games and the young guys getting a chance!

The devils finishing below us will be a kick in the balls. If we're missing the playoffs I want to completely suck. There is nothing worse than being mediocre.

Looking at the standings and the games remaining, the best case is a 6th-worst finish. Baring something silly, we aren't going to catch FLA, COL, CGY, CAR, or NSH.

Quote:
6. Tampa Bay - 38 points (@MTL, CAR, TOR, @BOS, FLA).
7. Edmonton - 39 points (@COL, ANA, ANA, CHI, @MIN, VAN)
8. New Jersey - 40 points (@PHI, FLA, @NYR, MTL, PIT, @NYR)
9. Philadelphia - 41 points (NJD, @CAR, BOS, NYI, @OTT)
10. Buffalo - 42 points (@BOS, NYR, @PIT, WPG, NYI)
11. Phoenix 43 points (@STL, @CHI, @DET, SJS, COL, @ANA)
Technically we could still catch Dallas, the Jets, and others, but it is less likely. It seems we're going to fall somewhere between 6 and 11, depending on the results the rest of the way. BUF and PHX have tricky schedules down the stretch. It really isn't out of the question that 2-3-0 puts us in 11th.

If we had simply lost the last two games, we'd be sitting 5th overall and only two points ahead of 2nd overall.

Hard to believe just a few days ago we were all talking about the Flyers getting a top 3 pick.

What do you mean?

It isn't a matter of faith. It is a matter of arithmetic.

As stated above, this thread was a massive jinx.

This makes me sad, I was really hoping to get one of jones/drouin/mac. They will each be very special players

You realize its a LOTTERY right? Just checking to make sure your aware. We totally have a chance at Jones or Nurse if we finish 5th or 6th.

...yes.

I think everyone understands that there is a lottery for the first pick. I think everyone understands that the chances improve with a lower finish.

That said, we're going to wrong direction--and are now more likely to draft 10th overall than 1st overall. That's why people are saying that the "tank" is failing.

We are 5 points from a Playoff Berth <.05% chance, and 5 points from the 3rd pick. It could just as easily swing the other way.

Problem is, I don't think the tank is employing the proper strategy...

The tank backfired and is actually protecting us from death!

We should have taken a daewoo...

That 4 game winning streak = difference between Jones/Mackinnon and Zadorov/Ristolainen/Domi/etc..
