2011 what lottery pick will we get?

unfortunately i feel once again we will be a lottery team. boston upgraded big time, atlanta just made a nice trade. tampa is on it's way back. there aren't too many teams we are competitive with on an on going basis. unless tallon can pull off a miracle, we once again are a lottery team. maybe 3 years down the road we will be competitive if the right moves are made. i see tallon stripping all assets that he reasonablly can including vokuon, booth, weiss and looking for a total rebuild. the horton trade reinforced this message.

I'd have to say this is a little premature. We have no idea what our team will look like opening night. I'd give it a few months before talking about lottery picks.

He's probably right. We look worse than Edmonton's current situation now.

Well, hopefully we end up in last with a 5 or 10 game separation from the 29th team. Then we draft sean couturier. That would give us a chance to start the rebuild properly.

Right now maybe. But I think its extremely unlikely that we go into the season with our current roster.

What if we addded some combination of Connolly, Gudbranson, Sharp, Steeg, Bobby Ryan, etc.

We could be pretty decent. Not saying we'd be a playoff team but its just too early to tell.

LOL. True Panthers fan post If we don't make any major improvments i wouldn't be surprised if we got #1 overall as there is no Crosby, Ovechkin or even near Stamkos level prospect available at #1

No, I said "redundant threads". Still...this thread is VERY premature, and is based entirely on idle speculation since we know next to NOTHING about the makeup of the team's roster next season. So really, it is a completely pointless thread and really does deserve the axe.

I suppose the problem is I unstickied the rant thread. Why don't you save it for after July, then I'll open a new rant thread and everyone can have at it with all their favorite doomsday predictions. For now, though, I'd rather skip having threads like this.
