Let's do this, Elfa. It's fun to do in every sport I root for.

Let it be known: Florida was the team that allowed Buffalo to get to .500.

As a lifelong Panthers fan, having finished almost exclusively in lottery, I will say that there's nothing to root for being ranked 23rd in the league. Last is way more fun, with false hope that talent can fix organizational incompetence.

I'm confident that the Flyers have eschewed some of that organizational incompetence based on the last two offseasons and their new coach, but it's more frustrating in the context of the current state of Philadelphia sports. Like, "Oh good, now the Phillies, Sixers, AND Flyers are all racing for the top pick."

Yeah that's usually how things are in Florida, with the exception to the Miami Heat. Basketball also happens to be my least favorite of the four. So when the Heat are bad, there's not even a consolation sport.

From a hockey perspective though, the Panthers have never fared well with drafting. That's the only exciting thing about Dale Tallon. He actually brought us some revolutionary drafting, in some light.

Ownership is key though. Hence why the Panthers are actually turning it around, with a new hard-nosed Jersey born owner. Rather than something like the pansy of an art dealer the Marlins have... need I say more about Jeffrey Loria...

Im a poker fan, and the "World Series of Poker" just completed this week. The broadcast was focusing on Philadelphia "Champions" of the last 50 years or so (2008 was the last, I believe) because the last 2 remaining combatants were from the Philly area. So they were lumping this WSOP championship into the list of champions....I laughed cause even I (a poker fan) would not consider the WSOP championship on the same level as the Stanley Cup (or Super Bowl or World Series, etc). Maybe I'm wrong.....is there gonna be a parade for Joe McKeehan?

Yes, it's:

Phillies - 2008
Sixers - 1983
Flyers - 1975
Eagles - 1960

There will be no parade for Joe, though he did go to college with several of my friends who all know him from that. They say he was a big math nerd.

I know I shouldn't be surprised but wow, Edmonton really just can't get their shit together, can they?

I mean, would it be possible for some other team to get the #1 pick this year? Maybe?

Maybe Edmonton should stop playing their 1OAs right away and consider overspending to build a stopgap team for development?

Doesn't matter how talented they are. Mcdavid aside, you're tarnishing them by telling U20s "welcome to the NHL plz fix our franchise."

They are like the NHL version of the 1980-2010 Clippers.

How much taxpayer money has gone to help sports teams in Miami?

Good thing the Florida Panthers have zero association with the city of Miami...
