NHL Draft Lottery Odds (updated: April 11)

1516

One game remains before the Leafs‘ sure to be long and interesting off-season gets underway. First matter of business? The draft lottery for all non-playoff teams, to be held next Tuesday, April 15.

After Toronto’s loss to the Panthers combined with wins by Nashville and Ottawa on Thursday, the Leafs currently hold the 9th overall pick in the draft (remarkable considering they were 9th in the League 20-odd days ago).

The Leafs could still wind up with as high as the 7th overall pick, but a lot of things would have to go right (or wrong, however you want to look at it). The Leafs would have to lose to the Senators in regulation on Saturday, while the Jets would have to win in regulation or overtime in their final game of the season and the Canucks would need to take three of four points in their final two games.

Here are your current odds:

Im good at this guessing stuff. Step one, get Shanny complete.  Wonder when steps 2 and 3 will happen (Rob Blake or Hextall or both as GM/ and or assistant, fire coach).

Cynical move.

Team in free fall for weeks and the solution is to Add another level of bureaucracy

The Toronto Maple Leafs are putting Brendan Shanahan in charge. TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie reports that while a contract has not been finalized and signed, the Leafs and Shanahan are expected to reach a deal making him the President of the Maple Leafs hockey club.

@LeafsForLife  Be careful with those, getting constipated with no stomach muscles to use can be a difficult experience.

@ShiftyD  I like the one I heard today that Shanahan was the only one all season with enough sense to remove Clarkson from the Leafs lineup.

@Loric76  Getting lucky in the 7th round, signing all the big ticket UFAs in a cap free environment and watching a generational defender do his thing?
