2014 NHL Draft Lottery – Harnessing the Power of 3.6%

965

This event gets its own TSN broadcast for reasons of hockey and Canada, especially given the audience this year. It’s a sad indictment of the current NHL affairs north of the border that six Canadian fan bases will be hoping for a miracle during tonight’s lottery draw.

The team with the best odds last picked first in 2010. The Leafs have an 8.7% chance of moving down to 9th overall, but a 3.6% chance of moving all the way up to 1st.

Obligatory:

    Jake Gardiner has been named
    to Team USA for the worlds in Belarus next month. Could make quite a
    pair with Seth Jones or Trouba.

    Jordan29   That’s right Lloyd

  • Jordan29

    it must be awesome being a leaf prospect or young player sometimes. People on twitter will bash bozak and defend Kadri no matter what happens

  • NotMurph24172

    Jordan29  I wouldn’t say no matter what, Kadri is in most trade rumours but bozak isn’t. That wouldn’t feel that good.

  • NotMurph24172

    ShiftyD  Trade the scrub

  • Jordan29

    NotMurph24172 Jordan29  i mean by fans

  • NotMurph24172

    Jordan29 NotMurph24172  “Fans” lol

  • ShiftyD

    Jordan29 LOL I defended Kadri.  In the context of he should be given more time.  Bozak has been given a lot and a lot of prime opportunities in comparison

    https://twitter.com/mlse Totally insane rant on TSN from https://twitter.com/tsnmikehogan https://twitter.com/jimtatti saying Gardiner should have been benched more and should be traded. https://twitter.com/search?q=%23sigh&src=hash

  • ShiftyD

    Murph2417   I tried to talk you down killer but you shunned me

  • Murph2417

    ShiftyD Murph2417  I know lol, was having a bad weekend. My Nanny passed away and I was drunk and emotional. Not a good combo

  • Murph2417

    ShiftyD  I didn’t read it because I figured we were last lol

  • Jay31

    ShiftyD  Lol even our most sheltered players like Rielly still had 44.5%

    For purposes of the lottery, I’ve heard from NHL people who feel the top tier is either 4, 7 or 8 prospects deep.

  • Murph2417

    ShiftyD Murph2417 Exactly, family was all there and we all were glad to see each other so it was nice in a way too but crappy under the circumstances.

  • Murph2417

    Carlyle needs to go, I stand by that statement

  • Jay31

    ShiftyD  here’s hoping for our sake it’s 8

  • 4evrblue

    Jay31 ShiftyD convenient number wouldn’t you say? lol

  • Murph2417

    Jay31 ShiftyD  We won’t need 8 😉

    https://twitter.com/coreypronman/status/456214173987270656

    And of course there isn’t agreement to which players are in those tiers. Guys like Perlini/Nylander/Kapanen/Ehlers for example.

  • Murph2417

    When is the draft?

  • Murph2417

    June something?

  • Jay31

    ShiftyD  Would be real nice if Nylander or Ehlers were still available at our pick

  • ShiftyD

    Murph2417 27th 28th I think someone said the other day. I’m not 100% on that though

  • Murph2417

    ShiftyD Murph2417  Good enough for me lol we will find out when it gets closer I’m sure

  • ShiftyD

    Jay31 ShiftyD  I’m not all that excited about Ehlers tbh. I’m hoping others are available when we pick

  • ShiftyD

    Murph2417 ShiftyD  Well, we could google it and find out LOL

  • Murph2417

    ShiftyD Murph2417  Pff, work

  • loomx

    So Bill Daly will be revealing the top 5. So we’re hoping that the first card he shows is Calgary’s, indicating that someone before the NYI won the lottery. there is a 23.2% chance that that happens. IF that happens, then there is a 26.6% chance that Vancouver won. A 20.3% chance Carolina wins. 15.5% chance that the Leafs won. 11.6% chance for the Jets. 9.1% for the Ducks. And so on.

    Unless my math is off and it doesn’t work that way.
