Great fucking day to be an Oilers fan.He didn't look overjoyed!  I would have been less cheesed with him going to Toronto to be honest.  The Oilers dysfunction is going to affect him.  The Oilers management ids pretty bad, maybe on draft day they'll accidentally announce someone else as their 1st pick!

Okay let me try and understand this. Bettman gets the draft lottery idea from the NBA. Yet does it completely different. He has a rule that a team cannot fall more than one spot in the draft order. So why have a draft lottery then. Who's to say the Leafs didn't get the third overall pick but can't have it cause Arizona can't fall more than one spot. This complete bullshit. Now the Leafs won't get the center they truly need.

The Oilers winning the lottery proves it wasn't fixed. You know Bettman would have put him in Arizona. Lots of butthurt around the web tonight, I'm just so happy. I'm sure McTavish would trade Leon Draisital for Toronto's 4th overall pick, we have plenty of Centers now.

Now the Leafs won't get the center they truly need.Since the Oilers lost to Carolina in the finals in 2006 they've drafted the following:
  • Jeff Petry
  • Sam Gagner
  • Jordan Eberle
  • Magnus Paajarvi
  • Taylor Hall
  • Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
  • Oscar Klefbom
  • Nail Yakupov
  • Darnell Nurse
  • Leon Draisaitl

Amongst others with Petry the only one that wasn't in the first round(2nd round at 45)  Eberle was the lowest 1st rounder at 22.

Playoff appearances:0


These idiots are going to **** McDavid up!  Here's hoping he pulls a Lindros, even though I wasn't a fan of that stunt!

It proves that the draft lottery is bullshit to begin with. The purpose of the lottery is to prevent a team from tanking the same year a future star player is eligible for the draft. Instead they reward the team that's been tanking for the past decade. I still think the idea and the way they do is stupid and screws a team that needs the talent and gives it to the team that has to much of it and still can't do anything with it. For those who believe Leafs ownership doesn't want to win because they fill the seats anyway should start the believe the NHL feels the same way and that it doesn't matter if the Leafs win or loose because they make the NHL money. They should have been rewarded with number 1 or 2. It's about time hockey's biggest market has a true star.

Jesus, calm down, you're going to get Hanifin or Strome. Just as good as McDavid!

I wanted Strome. Not gonna happen. I don't see the Coyotes passing on him because he fits their need as well. I have no problem with Hanifin but Strome is what they really need and will take less time to develop than a d-man.

I think Hanifan is going to fall now, Toronto isn't going to take him.  Marner?

Damien Cox has already done a Mock Draft - you won't believe who he's got going # 1 to Edmonton.

He writes for a Toronto newspaper. Like I've stated in previous posts. Toronto media knows nothing about pro sports. So I would believe the National Enquirer before I believe his journalism.

I can see that. Blue liners are a risk. He plays in the NCAA not the CHL so not much is known about him over a long season.

The draft wasn't rigged, that's nonsense. Edmonton should deal RNH for a top young d man ( Seth Jones type) or a top 5 pick and draft their own. They could always trade down to #2 with Buffalo and come back with a kings ransom of a haul.
