Today is NHL Draft Lottery Day!

New, comments

Tonight could have been a much more dramatic night if the Leafs had lost to the senators but that ship has sailed. While we're focused on the chance of the Leafs moving up to the 3rd overall pick keep in mind that there is also a 9.5% chance of falling to 8th. The festivities start at 8pm on TSN and like any other game day we'll have an open thread here and hopefully we'll be celebrating a four-spot jump. Thanks to TSN for the following table:
