They changed the draft lottery rules, so the top 10 teams that miss the playoffs have slightly better odds, whereas the worst 4 teams have a slightly worse shot at it. Buffalo has got to be pissed. And for the Canucks, well, if we finish just out of a playoff spot, 14th worst, at least now we'll have a 1% chance at McDavid rather than that piddly little .5%

It gets even worse for would-be tankers in 2016.

The last-place team could with 4th overall. :)

The way it should be. I can hear Buffalo crying from here.

Be thankful Todd
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Nice to have a GM whose a hockey nerd too...

http://www.faceoff.com/sports/hockey/vancouver-canucks/benning+remake+canucks+uncluttered+picture/10158316/story.html

The last occupant, former GM Mike Gillis, had a big photo of himself and a trophy fish. Brian Burke proudly displayed a portrait from his minor-league playing days: Burke bloodied but stoic. (He was injured in the warm-up).

Benning could show off a photo, too — for instance, holding the Stanley Cup he won three years ago.

“I just cleaned my office up,” Benning said Thursday. “I usually have these sheets spread out all over the office. I like to keep wall space available.”

Benning is an active thinker. He writes down ideas, makes lists, charts. He has a hand-written roster of his team, with age, salaries and contract status noted by the players’ names. Another poster-size sheet displays the traits he believes a Canuck should possess. But Benning’s masterpiece is a positional depth chart that includes every team in the National Hockey League, penned by Benning on feltboard and arranged by team rank. It contains the colour-coded names of more than 700 NHL players and occupies most of the south wall of Benning’s office at Rogers Arena.

It’s like what Michelangelo might have created for the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel were he a hockey nerd and not a Renaissance genius.

“This is my work space,” Benning explained. “I need to know every player in the league.
