Thought this was interesting. NHL standings if the Olympic System was used (3-2-1-0)

Question for you guys...

The Isles traded their first to Buffalo in the Vanek deal, but it can be deferred to next year if it is top ten. Unless something crazy happens, it will likely be top ten, if not top five. The question is, do you keep that pick in what is considered a less than strong draft, or do you roll the dice and see what happens next year. Now, if next year's draft is supposed to very deep, which I think it is, I think I consider rolling the dice. Even with a healthy Tavares next year, this team still likely misses the playoffs. So I guess what I'm saying is what comparable pick would it take to keep or defer the pick? Is pick #5 this year the same as pick #10 next year? That sort of thing.

Also, if the swap is automatic this post is obviously irrelevant, it is only applicable if the Isles have a say in the matter.

I think it all depends on the health of Tavares moving forward. If he's going to be 100% ready to go next season, then I think you give them the 2015 pick with the hopes that you're at least a middle of the pack team next season. Use you high 2014 pick to add another piece to the puzzle and call 2013-2014 a lost year.

If Tavares isn't healthy enough to give you a full season, then I give up the 2014 pick and keep the pick in 2015. McDavid and Eichel are good enough prospects that you keep that pick if you think there's any chance you'll be in that area of the draft board. To me, that only comes down to whether or not Tavares is fully healthy and ready to go in October. I guess you'll have to depend on the doctors to give you the answer on that one.

It's not automatic, the Isles have the choice to defer the pick if it is a top 10.

I don't think the Islanders will be #1 overall bad next year. So if they are hoping for McDavid & whoever the college kid is (Eich-something) they might as well grab their high end pick this year.

Incidents like what happened last night come around every once in awhile and rattle our sense of perspective. Suddenly our own team's woes become pretty trivial in the face of such an event, and every hockey fan looks inside him/herself and asks that fundamental question: How did the Canucks become so bad?

This year it should be top 5 with a decent chance to win the lottery, so I think they'll keep it.

I'm still scratching my head about the whole Schneider/Luongo deal.

They had a 3-0 lead into the third and then let in 7 goals to loose 7-4. Against the Isles.

Eddie Läckte som ett såll as we say in Sweden.

What I take away from that is that the Flyers are going to lose in a shootout to the Devils tonight.

I seriously think we should take some things from the Olympics. I still like the 3-2-1-0 point system. I like how you can re-use shooters for the shootout. How the shootout is 5 rounds instead of 3. However, I still wish for more OT though.

The NHL likes money, so a 3-2-1-0 point system will not be adopted any time soon. The current system keeps the playoff races tighter. In the 3-2-1-0 standings posted above, New Jersey is in trouble; in reality, New Jersey is very much in the hunt for a spot.

Tighter races keep fans coming to the arena, so I doubt we'll see anything change in the near future.
