Hardly matters? Yes. In the race for 1st overall. But not the other stuff.. You can only move down one slot.

I hate cheering for us to lose but it really is what's best long term for the franchise.

MacKinnon, Drouin, or Jones are all going to be great players.

We can also lose in OT/SO. Even if we win we'd only pass Nashville and Tampa Bay if they fail to pick up a single point in their last game.

Holy **** Barrie played 28 minutes tonight . Both him and Elliot looked really good makes me feel a little better about our defence in the future. Barrie looks so confident out there, you can just tell by the way he's wiring those shots.

The lottery weighting is the exact same, only difference is that whichever team wins the lottery doesn't just move up 5 spots, they draft 1st overall but the odds are the same as they always have been

With that being said, I still love seeing wins more than losses even at this point

Holy jumping....was there a game tonight???!!!! (Just kidding...sorta)

Oh geesh, this move to a home that can't receive Dish Network's signal has really screwed with me and although I really haven't missed watching the team lose, it sucks to miss the few games they manage to win. Thinking of going with the internet based version of CI....how has Game Center Live worked for those of y'all that have it? Would you recommend it over the traditional CI packages or not so much? The ability to watch archived games from the past seems like a huge plus.

I've been using GCL for years now. Because I'm living in Germany I never had to deal with blacked out games. This has changed this year. Not many Avs games have been blacked out but plenty of exciting ones. So I'm not sure whether I'll order it again.
The quality of the streams is very good, though.

Ty and Stef are dynamite. Happy for Bordy, he deserves to score from time to time.

Really disappointed that we won that shootout.

If we had just lost the SO, we would have 29th locked up now, and we could have went out and destroyed Minny tomorrow to potentially ruin there playoffs.

Now I don't know what I want tomorrow. Cause I really want CBJ to make playoffs.

The game against the Wild is today, not tomorrow.

This.

I don't condone tanking, but it's frustrating as hell to be this close to a great prospect after the hell our team put us through and NOW they decide to win some games.
