Incredible.  The Rags are going to complete their rebuild well before we do.

We've been terrible for the better part of a decade, and they're going to turn their rebuild around in about 3 years.

Well it helps when you get players who only want to go there cause of the bright lights (Trouba, Fox) AND you win three lotteries in two years.

As long as he sucks, that’s all that matters.

The Flyers will probably win the Cup too. I’m not a betting man, but the way this year has gone, you can almost guarantee it at this point.

Sucks but hard to complain when the Devils DID get two 1st overall picks in 3 years. 

It's still pretty easy to complain. It was a terrible system and the league got what they wanted... The ability to cram a few big markets into possible playoff positions and still be able to have them available for a lottery pick if it didn't work out. 

The only fair way to have done it is to have run the lottery after the play in ended with the correctly weighted percentages.

Yeah it’s bullsh!t. The league got exactly what they wanted, and that’s why they did it this way.

**Whiny post warning**

I mean it's really frankly ridiculous when you step back and think about it.  We've had completely meaningless hockey in New Jersey for 80% of the past 4 seasons or whatever and, praise be to Jebus, we managed to win the lottery twice and select some good players.  But as far as entertainment is concerned we've had really.. very little on the ice to care about.

Meanwhile, the Rangers have had, at the very least, entertaining teams.  They've won games, made the playoffs, etc.  And they're going to now rocket past us in the rebuild process.  

It's the way it goes, but it's such bullsh!t.
