    Go PIT! Go WSH! Just as long as Ovechkin goes to the East.

    If the Penguins are the worst team of all time, what does it mean if they finish 29th or better?

    I would ordinarily hope for CHI, cause I feel bad for their fans.

    But I as an Oilers fan have to hope for CHI to win all 4 games against STL and NSH, if possible.

    Perhaps if they do so, karma will smile upon them and they can win the lottery :)

    It means Columbus never actually got the NHL team they were promised six years ago.

    The 2 teams i would want A.O. to go to are either the blackhawks or the pens. Both have teams with young talent and are lacking a potential super star. The only thing I wouldn't like about him going to Chi. is their owner.

    Because the only way the Blueshirts get Ovechkin is from winning the lottery from the fifth spot, they're too far ahead of Pittsburgh, Washington, Columbus, and Chicago in the standings.

    Except the team that finishes last has greater odds because if the sixth last place team or better wins the lottery, the worst team still retains the #1 pick. But you're right, finishing last doesn't guarantee a thing.

    Factoring in teams outside of the bottom 5 winning the odds add up to...
    30th............48.2%
    29th........... 18.8%
    28th........... 14.2%
    27th........... 10.7%
    26th............. 8.1%

    No, the BLUE JACKETS should win the lottery

    That's exactly why they shouldn't win it.....they've already gotten their 2 offensive studs (both of which are better than anything Wash has). CLB needs to finsh 3-4 and grab Barker for that team and give a team like Wash (who's fan base has never had a franchise guy....PIT's had 2 over the last 20 years, and CHI just doesn't desrve it because of mgmt....besides, Wirtz would never put in the $$ to put a decent team around him and I really don't want to see someone of that talent wasted on a lame team, which he would in PIT or CHI).

    Can u tell I'm a Caps fan :) Truthfully though, I'd feel the same way if I wasn't.
