CLINCH 29th Overall
If we win 29th: Lightning have to win.
If we lose: We don't need anybody's help.
Florida: We cannot pass them for 1st overall.
Tampa: Need a big win here in front of their crowd to take the pressure off.
Nashville: We cannot pass them if we win, they hold all the tiebreakers.

I will remain neutral for this one, so that I can not be blamed or blame myself for the outcome. I suggest you all do the same.

edit: If we win tomorrow, we gain a ROW on Nashville.

So I tweeted Dater before realizing the ROW issue with Nashville, and he took the credit. Jokes on him because he'll look like an idiot if Avs finish 27th. Mwhahaha

I really want to win Hejduk's last game, CBJ to make the playoffs, and Minnesota to miss out so I think I'm just going to forget about the tank tomorrow.

While I want a top 3 pick, this draft is good enough that top 5 is fine.

Recent 4th-6th overall's have included players like E. Kane, Pietrangelo, Backstrom, Alzner, Kessel, OEL, Zibanejad. Obviously some lesser players in weaker years were picked in that range (Brassard, Gagner, Hickey, Filatov, etc etc), but this draft is pretty strong at the top. We will still have a chance to grab a great player with the top end depth of this draft.

We beat them twice this year, so if we win and they lose we are ahead of them.

Avs had two home games. The first game is disregarded.

Regardless, a win in OT or regulation give us the ROW tiebreaker.

It's just one game, we shouldn't settle for 5th pick in the draft.

Seph must be drunk lol,

Nashville AND Tampa both need at least one point for us to be able to win in regulation.

We can win in the shootout and stay 29th if Tampa picks up a point, because they would hold the ROW tie breaker. (We're tied in ROWs with NSH, The first game against Nashville gets dropped, which results in a tie, which moves to GF/GA differential, which we lose.)

Surprised Hejduk or Giguere did not announce that this is their last season. Both are done tbh (bad health more of the reason for Giggy, he'd make a decent backup but maybe not in an 82 game schedule).

If we bring Hejduk back next year after overdoing it with Foote (and already overdoing it with Hejduk) then that's a bit of a problem.
