    Winning first overall would be very Oilers. I fully believe the Oilers are hated by many because of their lottery wins.

    I was kind of hoping the #2 pick would be the one, if any, to be available. That way if the Oilers lost and if the Oilers won the #2 draft spot, it wouldn't be quiet as bad.

    On a serious note winning the entry round is really the only thing Oilers fans should be rooting for. McDavid and the team need an official playoff appearance. Chance to win the cup is what it's all about and under the circumstances the Oilers have a better chance than many/most. Also if we did get the #1 slot the bonus structure would be incredibly difficult to fit in the current cap situation. Even a standard 1st OA bonus Laden ELC could break the Oilers. McDavid could put a bad #1 into Calder talks just by sitting next to him on the bench... And then signing a another potential superstar... would be next to impossible after the ELC. While a good problem to have it would be a problem.

    Lafrienere McDavid Puljujarvi
    RNH Draisaitl Yamamoto

    Would probably be the most talented top 6 in the league in a long time no matter who is the RW of that top line.

    This is not a typical playoff season, I don't believe the players are really that interested in playing, therefore I hope we lose the play in series, improve our draft position and wait for hockey to come back in January, a well rested movtivated Oiler team with hopefully Lafrienere on the wing will be fun to watch.

    Well that is 8 votes for not continuing the season.
    NHL management at its worst.

    Pathetic idea to hold this draft lotto in june. Play-ins idea was just as dumb.

    I got to admit holding the draft lottery now was extremely stupid. I'm curious if they got decent ratings. Probably for the first time in a decade I didn't bother watching. Pre restart/minor updates just seem lame to me. I'm looking forward to the playoffs but every decision/activity leading to restart seems long drawn out and makes little sense.

    As difficult as the situation has been I feel the nhl is just flopping around pretending to be relevant. It's hard to imagine they are serious about restarting the season. I think they could already be playing games if they really wanted even with covid restrictions.

    Must be out of the loop. I just look for Taylor hall tending to find out what's going on.

    Imagine the Oilers lose to Chicago and wins the lottery. An outbreak happens and the league is forced to cancel the remaining of the playoffs.

    So if the Oilers lose to the Hawks and don't win the 2nd draft lottery...

    will they be picking where the Hawks would? 9th?

    No, win percentage determines it, but they'd still be guaranteed to draft ahead of the playoff teams, and in that scenario, ahead of the Hawks

    Isn't the 2nd lottery going to be used to fill out the remaining slots?

    Winner gets 1st overall
    2nd = 9th
    3rd = 10th
    4th = 11th
    5th = 12th
    6th = 13th
    7th = 14th
    8th = 15th

    We get 1st overall or 14th/15th depending upon if PIT advance or not.

    We have no shot at picks 9,10,11,12

    Canes and Isles both have a better winning percentage than we do.

    Just keep it with the teams in the play downs. They made their garbage system. Stick with it

    It's a win-win for Oilers fans. If the Oilers win they advance to the playoffs and anything is possible with McDavid and Draisaitl on the team. If they lose they have a shot at Lafreniere.

    Puljujarvi is at best a 3rd liner at the moment

    If we get the first overall, we apologize to no one. And wishing to get the #2 instead of the prime cherry makes zero sense.
    Do you want us to finish up as runner up for the cup too, so everyone else wouldn't be so mean to us?
