"As it should be................"
hamburg, NY • United States •
Plain and simple, it sucks!

I think teams should pick acording to how they finished the regular season not the bogus lottery system thats in place. Gary if it isn't broke don't fix it.
I think there would be two races in the league, one race to the cup and one slip 'n slide to the basement.

Speaking of the bottom dwellers my team, the Buffalo Sabres were at the F.N.C. playing a 4 point swing with the Edmonton Oilers. They played a decent stinker against a faster just as smelly Oilers team loosing in regulation.

Thank God we lost, at this point in the season who wants to loose draft position going on a pointless winning streak where there's nothing to gain and everything to loose

Steve Ott I pray will remain a Sabre, perhaps we can get a discounted Derek Roy next season. I don't care what you say Kyle I think Roy would make a good 3rd line player.

One thing you don't hear too much of is how your 3rd and 4th lines could be your leaders, too many are fixed on leadership coming from the two top lines. A leader doesn't have to be your top scorer he can be the kind of player Ott is, a hard working scrappy player who game in and game out will pay any and all prices during the game.

Scrapper Steve scored again and so did Drew Stifford (hey whats with that)? are we in bazaro world?

My thought on the goaltending situation aren't good with out a stellar defense I think Jonas Enroth will be nothing more than a middle of the pack goaltender. I know we have a stock pile of goalies in the system but none are tested at the NHL level. I know theres a waiting game going on with the trade freeze and dead line but if I were in charge I send out the message the bidding for Miller end 1/2 hour before the Olympic trade freeze on Friday and see what we can come up with.
I think it would be a good time to assess our lower level talent and also give them a taste of what the NHL game is like for the rest of the season, your training camp competition will certainly benefit

You want Roy back? That would be an idiotic move and would never happen.

It sounds like your saying teams should just tank once they feel they are out of it. What about the season ticket holders do they get their money back since under your proposal you would not advise even trying to go on a pointless winning streak. The lottery was put in place to stop such non sense as losing on purpose to better your draft position. You do bring up a good point though as there are a handful of teams that get punished year after year for trying to best product they can on the ice. Those teams are no good enough to win it all but dont lose enough to ever get a fair shot at a franchise player in the draft. I can understand why you would root for your team to just tank it and come in last place, heck, worked for the Penguins, TWICE!

This is what bugs me. People wanting the team to tank. WHY???? So they can get a good draft pick? WHOOPIE!!!!! Lose so we can take a chance on a guy. Personally, I thought the reason you plated was to WIN.
