New, comments

After taking the weekend off, let's resume our look towards draft day...

Yeah, uh, sorry no guides on the weekend, the kids were sent away to their grandparents for the first time since...hell i can't remember. As much of a lost weekend as you can have in your early 30's with a bad back and spending an afternoon looking at model homes.

I hate my own house now BTW.

Anyway, here are your lottery standings:

Points Odds at #1
Buffalo 43 20%
Edmonton 47 13.5%
Arizona 49 11.5%
Toronto 57 9.5%
Carolina 57 8.5%
Columbus 58 7.5%
New Jersey 66 6.5%
Dallas 68 6.0%
Philadelphia 69 5.0%
Colorado 71 3.5%
Ottawa 71 3.0%
Florida 72 2.5%
San Jose 72 2.0%
Los Angeles 75

1.0%

Alright! Go Leafs! Back down to 27th place and 9.5% shot at #1! Man I hope Arizona and Edmonton go on winning streaks.

Here are tonight games:

Edmonton Oilers at Detroit Red Wings
Best outcome:Edmonton over Detroit in regulation

It doesn't matter if Detroit gets a point, but I like it when they lose.

New York Islanders at Toronto Maple Leafs
Best outcome: NY over Toronto in regulation

Gotta keep those points away from the ACC, and give the Isles a 3 point lead on 1st in their division.

Anaheim Ducks at Vancouver Canucks
Best outcome: Meh. Let's say Anaheim over Vancouver in regulation.

No Lottery hits here but Anaheim getting 2 points keeps them ahead of Nashville. I also dislike the other Canadian teams, so let's give the Canucks no points and let LA take their spot.

Nashville Predators at Arizona Coyotes
Best outcome: Arizona over Nashville in regulation.

One game that affects two picks. Arizona all the way on this one.

Pittsburgh Penguins at San Jose sharks
Best outcome: San Jose over Pittsburgh in regulation

No worries for the Leafs on this one, but I want SJ to make it over Calgary and would love to see people panic i nthe hockey mecca if the Pens barely make the playoffs in a wild card spot.

Big night tonight. Got islanders! Go Coyotes!
