why does it even matter in their first year post expansion. they were never going to be drafting a playoff team

No it doesn't matter, I just read a few posts saying they'd be competitive or wild card and there's just no way

Who could they have drafted to be much better than this anyway.

Of course there will be SUCK.

Let's* go Blackhawks! The Blues and Red Wings suck.

Obviously they were not going to be good, but let's not pretend this team isn't significantly worse than what it could have been.

But they don't want to be any good. They want a few good players to excite fans and a bunch of stuff they could easily trade.

if they had flipped some of their weird draft choices for better players and had a lucky season, they could have potentially been a wild card bubble team. maybe if everything went their way i could have seen like a 10% chance of them making the playoffs

based on what GMGM has done in the past 24 hrs, i think it's more like a 1% chance

worse today, yes, but that doesn't matter. so far it's way too early to say that they could have done a better job getting futures. i still think the schlemko deal was pretty close to market value for him.

the emelin pick is the only thing that really confuses me

i should clarify that if their goal is to tank hard emelin helps, but there's no gm in the world, even in a tanking scenario, who would purposely pick a player that they think is horrible.

Can they trade a player back to the team they took him from or are there rules against that? I want him back

No, they have to wait a full year. So they'd have to send him to another contender, but that shouldn't be a hard sell.

is that true? i've never heard of it, but i've never heard of a team wanting a guy back so soon. even if he was picked in the draft?

That's the buyout rule I think, no idea if it applied to the expansion draft.

For the draft the player is ineligible for the team they came from until Jan 1 2018. I'm not sure if that's just direct trades from Vegas to the team or any avenue that gets the player to the team.

I have faith Benning will do something stupid in the draft today. Is there an elite #1 pick next year? Even still the Canucks will lose the lottery like they will lose most of their games.
