I couldn't find any info about who won the lottery before i came on here, what's the deal with no news coming out of NHL.com? But i agree that Toronto was the worst choice, but at least it will be fun to watch another top prospect waste away in Canada. Too bad this one's American.

Worst part of toronto winning is now are the Lou apologists in our fanbase who will somehow make this seem like some sort of stroke of genius move by Lou in the team tanking, winning the draft (that they had the highest chance of winning) and selecting the obvious player

I wonder what is more likely to happen Devils picking a player at 11 or trading it away for a player/picks

Picking. I'd put it at an 80% chance.

Obviously sh!t happens and a really good offer lands on our laps, but it just doesnt seem likely right now unless a currently highly rated player (notably a D-Man) starts falling and a team behind us a few spots wants to move up.  Maybe some GM wants to move a current player that we're interested in by the draft, but predicting a move is folly at this point. I'd put trading up at an equally low possibility. Outside of the top 3, the talent level becomes more condensed so we'll likely be getting a talented player at 11.

Nice list Common Dreads, my only comment is that I'm under the impression that the Coyotes desperately need to add a defenseman.  Then again, they're about to swap out Maloney for a 26 year old moneyballer, so who the hell actually knows. 

I bring it up because I would love to see a run on defenseman and Nylander start to slide a little.

I agree, but my thought process was they'd likely go BPA considering they have an additional 1st Rounder at 20th overall, they could add a defenseman at that pick if they wish

Craig Button has us taking Clayton Keller.

Button's mocks usually get a lot of sh!t but last year he actually did pretty well. I hope he's right this time too.

Eh, it'd hurt more if it was the last number drawn. We were out on the 3rd. It sucks, but its easier to swallow looking at it like that.

Picking @ 11 is nothing to sneeze at. Still could get someone only a year or two away from being NHL ready.  CD,  I think the Oilers will take a d man @ #4. 

also, another team (12-14 pick) might "really" want to move up (like the Bruins') and fork over someone that could step in.
