Total of 49 balls

One Ball (~2% chance of 1st overall):
LAK VAN SJS CHI PHX DET NSH OTT NYR WSH BOS NJD PHI PIT TBL EDM MTL BUF

Two Balls (~4% chance of 1st overall):
STL NYI COL ANA FLA

Three Balls (~6% chance of 1st overall):
MIN TOR WPG CLB CAR CGY DAL
A 6% chance is not worth a full year of hockey taken from my life for the second time. Who knows, we may be a playoff team next year, we may very well be in the lottery.

Anyways, Nathan Mackinnon would look good as our #1 centre.
the formula was to give Pitt Crosby or they were going to fold in Bankruptcy.
...then it was a weighted draft from the bottom up, which was 100% unfair, as teams like the Pens who had just drafted Malkin would not have finished dead last again.

Anyone have a list of the picks the Leafs hold for the 2013 draft as of now?

How about needing Tom Kurvers so badly that Leafs dealt away the pick that was used to draft Norris Trophy winning dman Scott Neidermayer #3 overall in 1991, and that was actual a good outcome as Leafs made more bad trades mid season to avoid the pick being #1 overall and Eric Lindros instead.

Boston wins a Stanley Cup and yet still has a top 10 ranked prospect pool, because Leafs felt the need to prop up another organization with our picks rather than build through the draft themselves due to GM impatience and Murphy's law taking over and doing the rest taking the Leafs to the bottom of the league.

The 2012 and 2013 1st round picks sit precariously now in jeopardy as Leafs head into summer looking for trades to bolster the struggle team for next year. Then we can all sit back and hear the GM echo out those infamous words again that "July 1st is our entry draft" for Leaf Nation.

Rinse repeat.. "Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it".
why do you continually quote Cliff Fletcher ...let it go man, just let it go!

1st (TOR)
2nd (TOR)
3rd (TOR)
5th (TOR)
6th (TOR)
7th (TOR)
4th or 6th (ANA) - Lupul is on the roster for 40 or more games this upcoming season it's a 4th round pick.

Agreed. Our odds aren't good enough. I would rather have hockey to watch.
