So how the Hell can the Canucks at 24th overall (sixth worst record) go up from 6.2 to nearly 19-20%?
The math don't fit, therefore you should exercise your right to refrain from further embarrassing yourself.
Actually the sixth worst record is 25th overall.
Nice math, Mr. Arithmetic.
Carry on though.
*puts mastabeta back on ignore*
In the whole scheme of things, it's minutia on the main point of the argument, in other words,
a team that finishes with a "similar record to the Canucks" last season i.e. the 6th worst overall record will not (logically) have "nearly an equal chance at Connor McDavid as the team finishing with the worst overall record", contrary to the speculation made by cyber bro dave .......
if what Sabres' Sports Reporter Mike Harrington, who cites the GM of the Sabres (a team would have vested interest in such information for obvious reasons) is true. There has been no information to my knowledge at this point in time that refutes what Mr. harrington has stated. If you are aware of such information, you are more than welcome to share it with me and the rest of your Peanut Gallery ...............
Please refer to the following passages:

Contrast dave's statement with the following:
