    I mean, when did this start anyway? A rather arbitrary decision if you ask me. Doesn't really address the issue of regular season parity if an underdog team wins the Cup. To me that's unfair. Powerhouse big money teams are affected only slightly.

    Seems to me that if the rest of the draft is organized in order of regular season points outside of the lottery, then why should a Stanley Cup winning team be penalized when they should instead be rewarded?

    Just seems patently unfair in my books.

    Odds this bum is a Flames fan: Yes -1000 no +800

    actually dude I agree with you, it is especially unfair if there is no season next year and the draft goes ahead twice - meaning our Flames will pick 30th two years in a row.

    Geez guys - getting a little greedy aren't we ? I guess one solution to not picking at # 30 is simple - DON'T WIN THE FREAKING CUP !!!!!

    well in this case i think it's warranted. mind you my heart wasn't bleeding for detroit or nj the years they won the cup recently

    we (calgary) have sucked so bad for so long now, mostly because of horrible drafting in the mid nineties (save for morris), plus add the fact that most Flames fans including myself see them struggling to make the playoffs next year, that we would really feel jobbed by getting the worst possible draft TWO years in a row, if there is no season next year.

    I don't see nothing wrong with it.After all if you finish 30th that means you did win the CUP. :shakehead

    yes but from our point of view having the draft repeat two years in a row is bs

    pick 30th in every round just because we had a fluke run to the Cup? That is bs, I can see one year but not two years in a row because of the lockout


    all 30 teams should have an equal shot at Crosby, I say throw all thirty teams names into a hat and set the order of every round at random

    are you sure you'd pick 30th in every round? Or just the first?

    You don't pick 29th if you lose in the finals, and it's highly doubtful that the 2005 draft would be the same order as this years. If there is no CBA, there wouldn't be a draft -- because the draft is dictacted by the current CBA -- at all unless the PA and the Owners came to a separate agreement about it.

    Oh, also, please shut up and stop whining, your team two wins away from the cup, ingrate.

    I'm sure the last thing the Flames orgnization cares about now is having the 30th pick.

    If you guys win the Cup you won't care either, or shouldn't.

    I would love to pick 30th and have it be our pick, not a pick we traded for.

    Then don't win the damn Cup. I'm sure TB will have no complaints about winning it.

    To be quite honest with you guys, the difference between the 15th and 30th picks this year really isn't all that great. And as many have pointed out, many teams would willingly give away the 1st overall pick for both these two coming years just for the chance to have their team name on the Cup. Be happy that you're in the situation you're in even if it actually involves getting two picks at #30. There are 30 teams in the league which means that if things were remotely fair, you'd win the Cup once every 30 years. Some teams still haven't come close to tasting it yet and would trade down to pick #30 each and every year if it meant getting the Cup just once.

    So, as much as I "feel your pain", you really should be grateful for the situation you're in.

    Why do you want a better draft pick? so you can have a better team? What do you hope to do with that team? TO WIN THE CUP. That's exactly where you are now. You are in a position to win the cup. Quit complaining, cuz 29 other teams would love to pick 30th if it meant getting the cup.
