    I'd take Hischier. New Jersey has an interesting off season ahead... expansion draft, plus first overall pick and potential Kovalchuk situation.

    Eh, the Sabres have been getting hosed on draft position pretty much every year since they started missing the playoffs. It's Buffalo, though -- they're used to it, lol

    Haha, can't argue that. I've honestly paid no attention to the lottery system for years but now that my hometown team is a part of the fuckery, its hard not to notice how silly it all sounds. That said it seems to certainly do its job of generating buzz. Kind of like the issue with division based seeding. Makes little sense competitively but it is exciting if nothing else.

    I'd lean towards him as well but Patrick is a two way centre who I feel might be what NJ wants more.

    Canucks and Red Wings were both 1 number off from winning it.

    Taylor Hall had a great tweet tonight that he is adding "NHL Draft lottery specialist" to his resume.

    I swear the Pens defense on the Caps first goal is the weirdest thing I've seen in the playoffs so far this year. Did they forget Niskanen isn't on their team anymore?

    How often in an NHL season does a penalty killing team fall asleep so horribly? Especially in the playoffs? The saddest thing is all 4 Pens players were being occupied by only two caps. Any one of the other 3 could've had a 1v1 with the goalie. Just weird because it was unprovoked, Washington did nothing to draw them in, the Pens just bit on a trap that wasn't there. I'm sure the puck took a weird bounce or two during that scrum but there's no reason the 3rd/4th Pens players should've gone anywhere but the front of their own net.

    Oh well, Caps are getting railroaded. Hard to see them winning 4/5 games with 3 in Pittsburgh.

    The Caps need Holtby to outplay Fleury if they're going to win. As near as I can tell, that hasn't happened yet.

    Yeah, you can argue that's been the difference so far. Fleury has had two very busy games and played great in both. The Caps could've come out with a big lead earlier today if not for him.

    Ovy seems to be suffering from Peyton Manning syndrome. Clearly better by far than everybody except one single player over an entire generation (Tom Brady) and that single player happens to win everything, especially in head to head match ups .

    If Ovy ever does get it done in the playoffs, I sure hope its this year or sometime soon when he can be a major part of the run. Winning it at 36 after a 30 pt season won't feel the same or earn the same respect. He's a 1st ballot guy regardless but this kind of stuff decides if you go down as a true legend or just a guy near the top of some categories. You can't be the second best of a generation and let well over a decade go by without an ECF trip.
