I am also excited to obtain another high draft pick.

As if the winning existed in the first place. You can't cease something that's not happening.

To explain further, imagine, if you will, that someone said to you "Hey, Mike, can you cease with the smart and insightful comments". How could you possibly stop making comments like that when you never, ever, ever, never, not once, ever started? Now you see.....

That being said, nabbing MacKinnon would be exciting, but, we're not even bad enough to be that bad. We'll pick 4th or something. Again.

The Leafs, I'm sure, will take the ever popular "try just hard enough to miss the playoffs and secure a middle of the pack draft pick". Which they have perfected over the years

This is a deep draft year, so most of the non-playoff teams will be able to get a good, promising player.

I really wonder how we're going to look in a half season. Those World Juniors though were incredibly promising...

All this is very true, but "Let's cease the winnin'" sounds much better than, "Let's continue not winnin' for MacKinnon." Sometimes it's all about the flow.

But yes, another 3-7 pick seems to be in the cards. However - rumors indicate that the schedule will be Division heavy, and we can't beat any goddamn team in our division - I'm pretty sure that's a rule - so a Top 1 or 2 pick might be in the cards. We can only hope, right?

WTF is flow?

It's sad, but, yes, I'll be rooting for as good a pick as possible.

Still love explaining to people that we haven't won a fucking playoff series in almost 20 years. Unreal. 20 years.

Which team beat the Islanders during their last playoff run? I'm trying to remember....

Hey, Elfa, you never answered my question in the MLB thread.

Also, I'm glad we're back to this sort of hockey talk as opposed to lockout discussions. How I've missed you.

Unless some real weird shit happens between now and May or so, it will be 20 years this Spring. FUCK. But they did keep the Penguins from a Dynasty, so it may be worth 20 years. Islanders used up all the good Karma by '83. 30 years of paying that shit back. Has to end soon, right?

BoMac - the last team to beat the islanders in the post season was Buffalo. But it was the Canadiens that stopped them in 93 and went on to win the Cup. I know you know that, and you're just being the snarky little douche bag about it, but I wasn't going to let you just get away with it and shit. So this is me calling you out. BAM!

I think I proved my point.

Question: If the Greater Toronto area got a 2nd team, would a lot of Maple Fans defect? I mean, and I mean this in no way offensively, but considering that the Leafs and Rangers may be the only teams to suck more balls then the Islanders over the years, would people just be like, "Hey, F You, I'm going to follow these new jacks?"

There's nothing great about the Toronto area.
