    But probabilities are against getting either one. Right now, in third last place, the Senators are guaranteed to get a top 6 pick with a good chance to pick 5th. Getting a higher pick in the 1st to 4th position is a dream.

    Interesting how the bottom of the league tightens up this time of year too.

    I have a bad feeling a winning streak is in the works.

    Nah what they torpedoed was a playoff spot long ago. We should have expected something like this given some of the talent on the roster. Still a piss off though. We're the Kessel era Leafs.

    Ya, most have said that there is too much talent on this team to truly be the worst, so it isn't unexpected. Just a little annoying as the prophecy fulfills itself.

    Every ****ing year (when we miss the playoffs)!

    The worst part about this is the biggest contributors will either be gone or regress next year.

    I've posted this in some of the bottom 5 Canadian team thread. Mainly trying to grasp what each fanbase is looking toward in the upcoming draft if their team doesn't get the top OA selection.

    Let's assume OTT receives the #5/6 pick and the following are gone.

    Dahlin
    Svech
    Zadina
    Boqvist

    #5 OTT selects:

    Dahlin
    Svech
    Zadina
    Boqvist
    Wahlstrom

    #6 OTT selects:

    There is no way we can out tank a Boeserless nucks. Saw most of the Kings game and just wow that is an awful team. Haven't seen them look this bad since the Sedin era started. A few injuries has turned them into a horror show.

    Let’s just hope we don’t catch the Habs.

    That lottery is such BS. But I also understand why it exists. Very conflicting. Thanks Edmonton/Toronto!

    They should make Marion Gaborik the Goalie and Anderson a forward. That would help the tank. Or they could even make Cody Ceci our number one centre and put Burrows as number one D man.

    You keep saying Melnyk doesn't want to sell! Besides, I don't think Bieber has the net worth to buy the Sens.

    Melnyk keeps saying he's not selling, and until that changes, I'm going with that.

    At what point does this franchise start becoming a poisoned chalice ,for him...The fans no longer trust him and it seems to be unwilling to buy into what he is selling.Him selling the team, may become an option he will have no choice but to look into...The league has already stated the team wont be moved period....
