Because you'll be watching this with bated breath here is an open thread to wrangle all of you in here. If you need a refresher you can click here to read more but here's all you need to know:

Odds that the Toronto Maple Leafs draft first overall - 18.8%

This is straightforward and it represents the odds that there will be reports of a sniper on top of the Air Canada Centre.

Odds that the Toronto Maple Leafs draft second overall - 42.0%

These are the combined odds that the Edmonton Oilers, Carolina Hurricanes, Atlanta Thrashers, Minnesota Wild, New York Rangers, Dallas Stars, Anaheim Ducks, Calgary Flames, and St. Louis Blues win the draft. If any of these teams win then they are unable to dislodge the Maple Leafs from the second spot.

Odds that the Toronto Maple Leafs draft third overall - 39.2% 

Only the Florida Panthers, Columbus Blue Jackets, New York Islanders, and Tampa Bay Lightning can bump the Leafs from the second spot by jumping four spots.

This is probably the best place to commiserate tonight. Let's hold a electronic vigil and pray for 3rd overall.
