    today NYR likely slot 15th for draft, pre-lottery

    but could easily fall to near, or into, top 10
    DO we care?

    IF NYR LOSE out, they drop to +2 (Pts-GP)

    NON-playoff teams which might pass them:
    Dallas +4 6GR(games remaining) (or Nashville, one makes playoffs)
    Phila +1 6GR
    Chicago .500 6GR
    Calgary -2 7GR
    Van -3 12!GR
    SJ -4 7GR
    LA -5 9GR

    Ott -8
    DET -9
    CBJ -9
    NJ -11
    SEA
    Ana -13
    Buf -18

    UPDATED/CORRECTED to remove AZ and insert Seattle

    Does it even matter with this draft?

    Let's win another #1 lottery pick and watch the reactions on Islanders and Devils boards with popcorn ready at hand.

    You never intentionally try to lose. What type of message would that be for the young kids on this team. Honestly even if we lost our last 6 games here, do we even drop that much lower at this point? I don't think gaining a few slots will make that much of a difference, especially in this year's draft which is going to be more of a crapshoot than usual.

    Outsider here, but don't you want to maintain a winning culture with young players coming up? Your team is on the edge. Not like last year on the edge but seriously on the border of some great years coming. Do you want to teach your most impressionable players that strategic losing is a thing?

    Win. This is probably a year where some guys will shoot up the board that shouldn't and some good players will fall in response. Also, if they start playing the kids in prominent roles more and play some prospects to see what they have, you might get that result just as a consequence. Regardless, try to win, just do it with the kids leading the charge.

    I don't think they'll need to lose on purpose. Their remaining schedule is Islanders, Washington and Boston twice.

    Considering the level of opposition and with Kreider, Trouba, Lindgren and (Howden) all possibly out, things will likely sort themselves out by metrics it appears...

    Looking like slotting in at 16th (you're forgetting Seattle being in this draft OP). The only chance we drop to 15th is if the Nashville vs Dallas battle has them both pull ahead of us with our difficult 5 games left. the difference between 15 and 16 is basically pointless especially in this particular draft.

    They aren’t going to tank, but they will just lose more than they win to finish the season because the teams they play are just better.

    I mean I am certainly shutting Trouba, Lindgren and Kreider down if that’s what you are asking

    No, we should play the kids as much as possible and whatever happens happens.

    The team will like shut down the banged up players once they are mathematically eliminated. Others might mentally check out, because they’re human. But none of the players actively care whether the team will be drafting 1st, 10th, or 15th this summer.

    Deliberately losing? No way. I could see giving Gauthier and DiGiuseppe and maybe Bitetto, Barron or Reunanen games though. Their legit enough players and prospects.

    pretty sure Trouba was concussed pretty good. I already thought his regular season was done.

    Just draft someone who can marinate a year or two and be a bitch to play against.
    I think Mike York will be the last forward rookie this organization drafts that actually put the puck in the net his rookie season.

    So we are going to miss the playoffs by a hair AND we likely get the worst pick out of all the non-playoff teams.

    Cool.

    Win. Time for these guys to win tough games agains good opponents consistently. If we practically lose out that's a worrying sign

    Always play to win. It helped in winning Laf and Kakko so it should be no different today, the rest of the season and for the rest of whatever eternity is left on this planet

    This aint no punk ass team
