As of 2/27/18 the Tropical Depressions. *Whoops I meant to say "Hurricanes" sit out of a playoff spot, again... Canes at this moment would be picking 11th in the NHL draft. With approximately 3.5% odds to win one of the top 3 draft lottery spots. The hockey gods decided to rain down on the Canes last year by gifting 2 Metro teams some undeserved draft lottery gifts. Will the hockey gods decide to finally gift the Canes after years of hard depressing suffering? (Doubtful) Since we ain't winning the lottery we should probably start learning the names of guys outside the top 3. So who are we looking at in the likely 8th-13th pick range?
