Saturday Mashup: NHL Draft Lottery – Connor McDavid or Bust

4788

    Just thinking of an interesting possibility for the lottery: if Leafs win, Sabres choose Eichel and this would likely mean years of memorable Sabres vs. Leafs (Eichel vs. McDavid) games.

    If you’ve never prayed before, pray now for a Leafs lottery win – whatever it takes…

    Happy Mcdavid day everyone!

  • Mitch92

    The day of reckoning is upon us!

    Burtonboy you’d really have to hate a place to turn down a cool $1 million at 18 years old

  • Burtonboy

    DeclanK Burtonboy Ominous . This coulds really have huge implications if he decides to tell teams before the draft I’m not interested .

  • Burtonboy

    MaxwellHowe Burtonboy Maybe his old man is loaded

  • North Kariya

    I’m nervous. Thankfully the raptors and Man United play today so I can take my mind off of the lottery.

  • The_Polish_Cannon

    I’m still waiting to hear from Phaneuf. Didn’t he make a comment that he would say something about what was really going on this season when it was over?

  • ProfessorRance

    Burtonboy DeclanK Don’t think we’d care if he spent the next two season at BU

  • Cameron19

    MaxwellHowe Burtonboy If you know you’re going to be a super star though, there’s not much need to rush.

  • The_Polish_Cannon

    MaxwellHowe Burtonboy no kidding… most of these hockey players come from upper class families anyway. Plus he knows he’ll be making millions at some point either way

  • MaxwellHowe

    Burtonboy MaxwellHowe or maybe the old man don’t like the thought of travelling to Arizona…..which is not like any old men I know

  • Mitch92

    DeclanK Burtonboy Career limiting move!

  • MaxwellHowe

    Cameron19 MaxwellHowe Burtonboy still a year of salary he won’t get back

  • North Kariya

    The_Polish_Cannon If your expecting something profound or insightful from that guy …. well good luck in life.

    Burtonboy DeclanK Damn right

  • Mitch92

    The_Polish_Cannon He likely was pulled aside by his handlers or management and told how that might impact his and the team’s future.

  • MaxwellHowe

    McDavid or bust…..I don’t like the implication of the title

  • http://mapleleafshotstove.com/ DeclanK

    MaxwellHowe LOL – just firing everyone up for a bit let down tonight

  • Scotty_8

    MaxwellHowe I think they’re just making fun of people who are gonna unreasonably disappointed if they lose 

    ie ME

  • ProfessorRance

    Scotty_8 MaxwellHowe lol

    Scotty_8 MaxwellHowe bingo!

  • MaxwellHowe

    Scotty_8 MaxwellHowe I feel like its a jinx of the Leafs eventual pick

  • zoidbergman

    Won’t the big debate going into the draft be what’s going to happen at pick 3?

  • ProfessorRance

    zoidbergman Who cares when we are picking #1 :)

  • Burtonboy

    Cameron19 MaxwellHowe Burtonboy Throw this draft completely out of whack if Eiche and Hanifin both decide to go back to school

  • Mitch92

    Burtonboy MaxwellHowe Eichel’s old man clearly did not teach him the same lessons that Connor McDavid’s father taught him!

  • The_Polish_Cannon

    Mitch92 The_Polish_Cannon i’m tired of the cliche politically correct sound bites. After a season like this I want to see a player act like an NBA player and tell us how they really feel

  • ninepaces

    The_Polish_Cannon Mitch92 you’d like the nfl then 😀

  • Cameron19

    Burtonboy Cameron19 MaxwellHowe It’s almost ideal for us if Eichel goes back to school. Pretty much wraps up a bottom 3 finish the next two years – after we clean house – and then when he is ready to join the team, bam, he’s 20, and we’ve got a whole collection of talent joining him all at once. That’s how Chicago really took off. Toews and Kane at the same as Sharp, Byfuglien, Versteeg and Bolland taking off, and Keith and Seabrook settling in on the back-end.

  • Mitch92

    The_Polish_Cannon Mitch92 Not if it reduces his trade value to worthless!

  • totalrebuild

    Strome, Marner or Hanifin is not a bust. They are all potential stars.

  • totalrebuild

    The_Polish_Cannon Mitch92 It would take too much time for the editors to remove the swear words.

    “Why We Should Pray They Don’t Win Lottery: Unless you like to literally hear a young athlete’s soul crushed by expectations and the unwavering scrutiny of the Toronto media, best not hope McDavid is a Leaf.

  • ninepaces

    zoidbergman i do actually worry the consequences the media hjere might have on mcdavid. but then it would be up to shanahan to build a supporting cast to alleviate the pressure.

  • Marlies Man

    zoidbergman Fuck you, Puck Daddy. How about Doug Gilmour. Didn’t even win a Cup here and he’s a legend. McDavid would be one of the biggest sports stars on the planet.

  • zoidbergman

    Marlies Man zoidbergman it’s becoming a media “circle jerk” that no one will survive in the toronto market due to it’s media.

  • totalrebuild

    These are just my guesses and have no basis in fact:
    If Buffalo or Arizona win, Hanifin will probably go to the Oilers, so we will choose between Strome and Marner.
    If Edmonton wins, Arizona will probably take Strome, so we will get Marner or Hanifin.
    If another team wins, we will get whatever is left over of Strome, Marner or Hanifin. 
    That is if the Leafs don’t go off the board..which I’m hoping they don’t.

    Good idea Declan- it’s needed humility which builds favour with the hockey gods!

    HHT MaxwellHowe Scotty_8 That’s the thinking

    Trying to pass the time level:

    Running the Draft lottery simulator 500 times

  • HHT

    You know, they should have thought this thing through and had Gretz and Mario there at the announcement.

  • zoidbergman

    bob hartley is an embaressment

  • Marlies Man

    zoidbergman Marlies Man They’ll be fawning all over themselves to blow the Leafs once they’re winning again.

  • LoovTrain

    North Kariya Glory, Glory

  • HHT

    So no more Kazakh power forwards for the Leafs? totalrebuild

    Luck be a lady… tonight!
