Unfortunately, we "win" the tie-breaker (ROW).
At the current moment though we have played more games than them. If they lose one more and we dont play then ya.

Also the worse pick we can get right now (say we win the last 4 and everyone SOMEHOW loses every other game) is the 13th pick. Can only get better!

Yeah, I get what you're saying, but the point is, they need another point. If we both lose out, they get the better pick.

Things went about as well as they could have tonight. If we lose out, we should be picking 5-6th, simply because a few of the teams below us in the standings play each other.

Let's not predict wins, that hasn't worked out too well.

Does anyone know what time the lottery is on that Monday? I have a final that day, hoping I don't miss it.

I'm a pessimist so I don't expect the Flyers logo to be picked for the top spot. I am hoping that it isn't a higher-up team, further pushing the Flyers down. They pick around 7th, they take BPA (which hopefully is Nurse), and they make intelligent picks near the start of subsequent rounds to refill the farm.

i am not gonna predict anything

since i suffer from a reverse curse. told my buddy that we are gonna lose to habs and rangers. was so confident i bet on habs and rangers. he says everything you predicted was the exact opposite. correct. its my anti jinx. so if i predict the flyers to go 0-82, they will end up 82-0. if i say they will lose a playoff series, they win it. so i am gonna say nothing. no comment. last year i was confident we would beat jersey in round 2, told my buddy we have this in the bag. he says yup. my mistake, i should have said we are gonna lose the series.

To be fair I think most Flyers were confident going into that game. Flyers beat the team that was favored to win the Stanley Cup going into the playoffs in six games and the Devils took 7 games and double OT to beat the ****ing Florida Panthers. Definitely one of the most disappointing playoff series to date.

Ok, thanks. Think they'll broadcast it from NHL.com or TSN.com? I don't have either channel up at school.

Do you have NBC sports? Pretty sure they'll broadcast it.

I'm going to say we lose out the rest of the season. This team is defeated.

I expect Edmonton to win it again just to show how stupid the NHL system is. Either that or the Devils will win it just to make me angry.

New Jersey's win gave us a bit more breathing room.

A 1-3-0 run down the stretch would guarantee the Flyers at least a top-8 pick. Assuming that Jones, Mackinnon, and Drouin are top-3, at least one of the "next" five (Barkov, Nurse, Monahan, Lindholm, and Nichushkin) would definitely be on the board, as well as the frequently discussed Ristolainen and Zadorov.

Because of our ROW, 1-2-1 finish could mean 11th...

This may well happen now that they are officially out of it. I am looking to watch the interaction between the players and Laviolette. They seem to have totally tuned him out. If that is the case over the last four games of the season, I don't know how the FO could possibly bring him back in the fall.

I'm predicting 100-0 wins for the Flyers in every game to the end of the season. Bank on it!

Dropped to 8th--2 points ahead of EDM, with the tiebreaker.

Best we can realistically do at this point is 7th going into the lottery (with quite a bit of help), but maybe we're just banking on karma.
