I'm a little confused. I thought that for playoff teams, the teams were ordered by where they exit the playoffs, with the tie-breaker being regular season points.
By that logic, Vancouver should be picking in the top 8 of the bottom 16, shouldn't they?
EDIT: I read on wikipedia that division winners kind of throw a wrench in things. My mistake.
Yeah and if the division winners don't make it to the Conference Finals, it throws another wrench into it - if a non division winner makes it to the Conf. Finals, all the eliminated playoff teams basically get bumped up a draft spot. Or something.
I don't think Morrisey will be around that late. If we have a chance at him it will be with the St.Louis pick. I think Calgary should get Morin with the pens pick. Even though he is projected as a 2nd rounder a 6'7" dman that can skate and is out right nasty is something this team needs.
