    I looked for this topic and didnt find it

    But anyway I thought guys who's team have been eliminated would be on top of things, for example leafs and canucks fans.

    Why? It doesn't really matter to either of those team.

    If theres any last thing for them to look forward to, its the chance of potentially being drawn higher than expected. Bottom three have a shot at #1, not sure how it goes beyond that.

    Leafs/Nucks's fans will be interested even if the odds of their winning 1.3% combined are basically nonexistant... they/we/I can dream that the near impossible happens.

    Even besides that... it will tell us who gets the 1st overall draft spot, and that's of interest to most of us regardless of whether it's our preferred team or not.

    1.3% chance is to move up the max 4 spots, not to move up to #1

    leafs would move up to #9 if they win the lottery

    I know, that's what I was referring to... combined the Leafs/Nuck's have an infinitessimally small 1.3% chance of getting a better draft spot, (9th/10th) respectively if they were to win.

    Actually this year I would be as happy at second as first. Even third would not be a disaster. For the Pens this pick really is not nearly as important as it is to any of the other rebuilding teams, though it certainly will not hurt and I am excited about the prospects. But please, please, please make it be the first overall for the Pens anyways. I want to see collective HF heads explode. ;)

    The Blues have never picked 1st, so it would be nice to have the #1 overall pick once.

    But if it was a choice between that or watching people go ballistic because the Pens got the #1 overall pick again, ... Jaded-Fan, I'm pulling for 'ya! :D

    If you picked the previous three seasons in the 11-14 range (not good enough to make the playoffs, but not bad enough to warrant a top 10 pick), then winning the lottery and breaking the chain of mediocrity is a blessing.

    In all honesty I have no real feelings for tommorow. I'm just as comfortable with the Pens picking first, second, or third.

    It will be funny to see people go ballistic if the Pens win, but some other team can win this year I hope. Having Crosby as a Penguin, I could care less if the league made us forfeit our first rounder for a few years.

    Of course, I'm excited to see who we do end up with. But I would rather see a team like the Blues win this year.

    Exactly. See above as well. It really sucks to compete year in and year out, and only hope that you can get an impact player with your pick. Seriously, the Kings have been just a poorly managed as the Pens were before they sold everything off. The difference? The Pens will go deep into the playoffs probably about a decade before the Kings will.

    Yup. It doesn't really bother me that much.

    But let me put it this way - I'd give up the Pens top pick this year for even a chance to have snuck in the playoffs as an 8th seed. I hope this is the last year that the lottery matters to me.

    Seems to be the Blackhawks luck, eh? Would've been cool to see Chicago get a stud like Malkin.

    Well at least it can't be Malkin to Barker bad.

    Probably Staal to Toews or Toews to Staal. It really doesn't matter this draft if we pick 3rd or 4th anyway.

    When you've been looking at the 8th seed (if you're lucky) and a first round exit for the last decade(or pretty much the whole duration of your franchise) I bet you would probably re-think that.

    Cups:

    Penguins 2
    Kings 0

    Not that the Kings have any luck with their early picks either, but it was the Pens tanking that basically got them those first two(and there will be more)
