Obviously I hope the Sabres get it, but (even though it would push our pick down) I wouldn't mind Columbus pulling off the impossible. After getting jobbed last year at the lotto, and the positive strides they made this year...imagine MacKinnon feeding Gaborik.

If you honestly believe that there's a good chance the Sabres win the lottery, you need a refresher course in mathematics.

Oh okay, I thought your facepalm was directed at me haha.

Yeah, I agree, it would be really cool to show it live.

Sabres win it so the NHL can unashamedly pump large markets for the next 5 years. Whenever anyone claims bias they'll go "BUT THE SABRES!" Terry slips Gary a fiver and we laugh all the way to the draft. At least that's how the Nyquil dreams play out.

I'm a little worried the next dream will have Betman in that evening gown. That'll be a weird one to explain to my therapist.

I agree. It would be a simple process to show since they are using a lottery machine.

And they should hire an outside consulting firm to run it (maybe they already do).

I've never been interested in watching the NHL lottery before. New experience for us Sabres fans.

It's like the scene in Willy Wonka where we all think Charlie didn't in fact get a golden ticket and Grandpa Joe wants to give him one more good dream.

I am dreaming dammit let me dream!

Talked to my math prof about these odds as he follows the Sabres too. He said its possible. I'm rigging the draft though so don't worry.

Sabres fan: What do you think the chances are of a team like us and a guy like MacKinnon... ending up together?

NHL: Well, that's difficult to say. I mean, the chance we published was about 3% but we don't really show the process so...

Sabres fan: Hit me with it! Just give it to me straight! I came through a long, rough season just to see this. The least you can do is level with me. What are our chances?

NHL: Not good.

Sabres fan: You mean, not good like one out of a hundred?

NHL: I'd say more like one out of a million.

[pause]

Sabres fan: So you're telling me there's a chance... *YEAH!*

I can't help but think of those lines from Dumb & Dumber as I read through our thread...AND...yes I want that top pick as well and also won't give up hope until the order is set.

Let's go Buffalo *clap clap clapclapclap*

Uhhh, that's not how the lottery works at all.

Also, saying something that has a 94.4% chance of not happening, isn't happening, doesn't really qualify as "calling your shot".

If Philly, Dal, NJ, or Carolina win I might need therapy, but my crystal ball says TB wins.

Hmmm... the conspiracy theories could (will? ) be out in force tonight. NHL-run Phoenix? Massive market Philly? The Chosen, err Oilers?


For the Sabres, given their inability to win most anything for most of this year, it would make a nice consulation prize to catch a break tonight.

Quite relieved to learn that a math professor has confirmed that something with a 3.6% chance of happening is indeed possible. Had my doubts until the expert weighed in.

You know, the Sabre fan has been through a lot of crap luck over the past few decades. The Buffalo sports fan in general has been through even more.

For once in the history of this teams existence could God or whoever it is that decides on these matters of chance throw this team and its fans an effing bone???

PLEASE???
