    This. It works just like its supposed to. It looks like s***. It works like s***. Its s***. I hope Stevie trades the pick. We might as well pick at 7-8.

    Montreal would not upset me as much as the others. Thay have been trying to compete for years with a roster that is worthy of tanking.

    This is were I get fuming. And now all eliminated teams get a equal 12,5% chance in a new lottery for the 1st pick.

    You know, if the Red Wings win the simulation 2 out if 3 it doesnt magically raise the odds to 66%. Same goes the other way. That being said; I have done the same thing myself...

    I seriously hope there are no compliance buy-outs included. Bad contracts will hurt others way more than us. In fact, I'm not even sure Abdelkaders and Nielsens contracts are going to be painful at all. When the cap opens up in 3 years both will be off the roster as well. We currently sit with over 30 milion in cap space for next season with only Mantha and Bertuzzi to "worry" about. Defense will never be a problem. Prospects will roll into the roster the next coming years and the worst contract we have is DK at 5. Our D-budget allows us to make significant additions even under a flat cap. I can see us add a veteran defenseman this year and another next year after Nemeths contract expires.

    Already coping? I will wait and seethe before I start to cope. I dont think there is anyway possible that Byfield drops to 5 or even 4.

    Yeah, but Chicago sucks more balls then half the teams you listed together.

    Imagine CHI winning 1st and they get to have Lafreniere/Dach for the next 15 years. How deserving. I might actually have to kill myself if that happens.

    Its all just too much with this league sometimes. I dont know if this is suppose to be ”parity” or whatever but they just try too hard.

    Good article($) on Johansson. A great deal of hype in it. https://theathletic.com/1877282/2020/06/18/red-wings-prospect-report-albert-johansson-plays-wise-hockey-in-shl/ “I just saw (them) together, and I saw Albert, and I told myself, Wow,” - Färjestad coach Pennerborn on Albert playing with Jonathan Blum “I think he’s going to be something very special,” - Jonathan Blum “I look at his legs and his body and he’s coming (along) really good. So that will not be an issue for the future.” - Coach Pennerborn regarding his size

    Our 2nd rounder is almost a 1st. Plus we get to be ”on the clock” all night and day leading up to the second round of the draft. Pretty hyped about it desu.

    Good thing about sucking is that you can have patience with these guys. There are open spots all over our defense for prospects to grab. We can let them all play and see how they fare. At 25 there might not be that much more to come but we got the time to find that out.

    How mad are you gonna be when we take Jake Sanderson at 4?
