Things have been slow lately…
Working on a post about the NHL Draft lottery, but what’s the point? The system is what it is, but any lottery is going to have winners and losers, and only the NHL could come up with a scenario in which not one of the bottom-seven/non-24 playoff and play-in teams would end up with Alexis Lafreniere as the top overall pick whenever the NHL Entry Draft happens.
Is it even worth posting about? Not sure. But as a former member of the QMJHL club that finished dead-last in the league regular season standings but lost the draft lottery and dropped to the third pick in 2017, I know exactly what the Detroit Red Wings are going through.
In the meantime, Happy Canada Day to our great neighbors to the North and the very reason we have this game we love.
Dom, Reed and the rest of Canada- this whiskey’s for you!
Liked this graphic, so am borrowing it and the least I can do is link to the city of Kawartha Lakes’ website…
