Are you more focused in the truth, or to follow your own self-serving interests? :mex:

Listen, I can't even with this junk anymore.

If you can't accept that when I said the process might change it was supported by reporting from a respected source linked by you, that's your business.

If you want to pick apart the type of offhand comments that are all I can muster up in the face of your incessant braying, go ahead. It's quite obviously all you can do to assuage your frustration over my initial response to you on this subject.

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.

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:

dbr wrote:If the current view that the changes in lottery odds (but not the draw for positions after 1st overall) will go into effect immediately prevails, the Canucks could have a season similar to this past one and have a nearly equal chance at Connor McDavid as the team finishing 30th overall.



Contrast dave's statement with the following:

I like how whenever the topic of restructuring the draft lottery comes up it's Tim Murray screaming & hollering that it can't happen next year....and a big "phewww" following the last meeting on it. He's become the official spokesman on McDavid/Eichel and finishing last. It's become a joke & I just pray they don't get either of them.

To be honest, I don't mind if the Sabres are going "all in" on McDavid/Eichel. Because it opens up trade possibilities with a team like the Canucks for either Cody or Myers, plus they are an Eastern Conference team. I could see another EC team like the Hurricanes going "all in" on McDavid/Eichel by trading away the Staal Bros. for picks sometime during the season.

I would be annoyed if a WC team i.e. the Oilers or Flames have the opportunity to draft either of them (for obvious reasons. :mex:

Well no other team talks about those picks continuously like Murray. He sounds like Gollum playing with the ring. It should be embarrassing for the NHL.
