It's the last game of the Leafs' NHL season.

Tonight, the Leafs play game number 82 against the Ottawa Senators. A win could bump the Leafs into the 11th draft position, a loss could see them drafting as high as seventh. With the new lottery system, that's the difference between a 4.7% chance at the top pick and a 1.5% chance. So here's a discussion question for today's LL: Are you cheering for a win or a loss tonight?
