I just read that Edmonton has now received the 1st overall pick 4 times since 2010! What are the odds of that?  That seems preposterous.  But if it was rigged, Bettman would have him going to Arizona to cover for his abortion of a franchise.  They should have stayed in Winnipeg.

The plan for the original Winnipeg Jets was to move to Minnesota but then some greedy developer came in and bought them so he can get an arena built in Glendale next to all of those unoccupied foreclosed homes. As usual the greed of the other NHL owners learn after the financial problems of Florida and Tampa Bay. Don't see why the Yotes couldn't share the downtown Phoenix arena with the Suns.
