Would you be willing to lose the year for MacKinnon?

Would you be willing to sacrifice this entire year, knowing the leafs would have a great chance to draft MacKinnon? (Assuming the Crobsy draft rules are used)

Short term pain, long term gain at it's finest.

We will probably have just as good of a change as getting him whether we play hockey or not. I want hockey.

Less chance than we had winning the lottery last year and getting Yakupov.

Yes, without even thinking twice. A future #1 C for the next 10+ years, or play 50 some odd games and pbly draft outside top 5.

The odds are probably better if there were a season.

Pittsburgh (1), Columbus (7), Buffalo (12), NYR (16) had max 3 balls last time. Play the season

If we have a higher chance than we do now, yes, otherwise no.

The odds of MacKinnon might be better if we do play

I'm thoroughly entertained by these negotiations. If you don't have a sense of humour about it, it's going to drive you nuts.

I'd rather make no deals and play the season. There's no way this deal could survive in the East with this team..

I might if it was a great chance of getting MacKinnon. But since it's only 6%, nah

I don't consider 3/50 a "great chance" of winning, assuming we go by the 2005 rules.

Play the damn season. I want hockey.

No because they could very easily be drafting 30th and the Kings could get 1st.

I think the lottery draft should be arranged so that the criteria for 'getting balls' is the same, however teams with the max three balls should be the 'lottery teams' Meaning if there are 5 of them, they would get the first 5 picks, then the rest of the league.

Another way of doing it would be to average the points over the past 3 seasons and do the draft order that way. With the normal lottery rules for bottom five teams. One twist though, any team that had a first or made the playoffs in the last three years, drops out of lottery spot.

Throwing seasons just as our team should be entering it's prime sounds painfull. If we can't start winning when hockey starts up we need to blow the entire thing up because the core of our team should be at their best

We had a better chance at Nail last year than we'd have this year without a season.

I'm against tanking so I'm obviously against this. If there were an NHL season and the Leafs tanked they would have a much higher chance at getting Mckinnon.

If the the 2012 draft lottery is the same as the 2005 draft lottery the Leafs would have a 1 in 16 shot at drafting first overall. That is a 6.25% chance. Those odds are awful. The math after that gets a little complex and I am lazy.. but if someone is bored (or smart enough) figure out the most likely draft spot for the Leafs with those odds. It is definitely out of the top 5. Probably closer to 11 or 12.

4 teams 3 balls

10 teams 2 balls

16 teams 1 ball

That tells me there is a 1 in 3 chance a playoff team (from last season) gets to draft first. That is a 33.3% chance. Those are pretty good odds for playoff teams.


So after reading my post does anyone who voted yes want to change their vote?

OK OK, did not look up whether LA had their pick.
My point was that one of the strong contenders could just as easily get the pick, defeating the purpose of the draft as a mechanism for strengthening the weak teams.
League got lucky last time (or did they? ) when Pittsburg got Crosby.
If it happens again, it should not be possible for an already strong team to be drafting top 10.
(outside of trades)

If we were 100% guaranteed to be able to draft MacKinnon then yes, without a doubt.

It's like you structured it specifically to favour Toronto. I like your style

We aren't. In fact, we have a 6% chance at it (assuming they follow the same procedure as 2005).
