Calgary's 1st rounder was traded in the Hamonic deal and isn't lottery protected lmao

With the two picks, the Isles technically have better odds to pick FOA than Edmonton and equal odds to the Rags, both of which they rank above lol

I wouldn't even be mad if the Isles win 1st and 2nd overall tbh

Is Ottawa's 1st rounder that's going to Colorado able to be protected before or after the lottery?

Condition: If Ottawa's 2018 1st round pick ends up being a top 10 pick, the Senators have the option to keep the 2018 1st round pick and send Colorado their 2019 1st round pick instead.

AFAIK Ottawa has up until they go on stage to announce their pick to decide if they want to keep this year's or next

Rangers have never had a first overall, right? I don't think Calgary, Dallas, Arizona, or Vancouver have either.

I think everyone else in the lottery has done it before.

the north stars picked modano first overall. does that count?

The 17-18 Rangers gave up 40 shots on goal twenty-four times this year, a feat also accomplished by the 05-06 Capitals. The only teams to face 40+ in more games were the 92-93 Sharks, who did so 27 times, and the 93-94 Kings, who did so 28 times. That Sharks team lost 71 games in the era of ties, but featured some good hockey names like Dave Snuggerud, Hubie McDonough, and Claudio Scremin. The Kings team only won 27 games under head coach Barry Melrose, despite Wayne Gretzky leading the league in scoring with 130 points, and another three Hall of Famers right behind him on their scoring list.

This year's Islanders tied that Kings team for most games facing 50 shots, at six.

I doubt Kovie is going to be okay with missing the playoffs each year. He probably had some assurances that the team will try and be competitive next season.

I think it would be great if the Rangers signed a bunch of guys to 1-2 year contacts and traded them at the deadline.

The ideal would be re-signing Nash and Grabner to one year deals and trading them again at the deadline.
