Ya now that it is all but over I want us to get as high a draft pick as possible. I still can't cheer for them to lose though but if they do I see it as a bonus now.
If it's over tonight I want to see them call up some kids for the last 4 games and get Jacob a few games. Bench booth so he doesn't get hurt!!
I was cheering for them to lose. Actually, the game was going just about perfectly. they actually played pretty well, Lack looked solid, Kassian and the Twins looked strong - so, the team seemed to at least show some signs of life - and all they had to do was let LA get that goal with a little over a minute left, call it a solid game, officially get eliminated from playoffs, start playing Markstrom, and go for the 6 pick. But they had to win, goll-darnit!
Dallas should beat FLA today, which will put the playoff misery to bed, and put Markstrom on the ice. We're still in solid 6 pick contention, and with Ana and Col on deck as opponents next, it's there for the taking.
