After this season, it would be the ultimate punch in the face to the CBJs to lose tonight. So it will probably happen and they will probably lose.
I think Edmonton will win and people will moan and groan to no end at them having no 1 for three straight years or Montreal/Toronto will win and everyone will claim the fix is in by the NHL because they are a popular teams and they don't want yet another young star festering away in another outpost.
But I do have this feeling that Edmonton will win and the board will just lose it. You think all the threads about redoing the lottery is bad now, if Edmonton wins this board will go nuclear.
