Draft lottery, bro. We've still got a lot to look forward to THIS season.

Sorry dude, the draft lottery just doesn't do it for me anymore. Would like some more points for McDavid to lock up the Art Ross.... Pretty hard to get up for a road game at Minny.

Side note: I wonder if teams will just start playing the Oilers 4 vs 5 skaters? Seems like a fool proof strategy.

I’m in need of a strong dose of McPoints tonight after the long weekend and a day in Banff.

Well, it appears our plan this year to build our team specifically to beat Minny has been successful so far. Mission accomplished.

At this point winning games doesn't mean much but it's always nice to watch a win vs a loss. I want McDavid to get some points. I expect he and Leon will be better as I thought both of them weren't very good against Calgary. I expect Talbot to bounce back as he sucked last game.

If the braintrust wasn't so bad at drafts I'd say we need this loss but honestly nothing matters anymore this season aside from McDavid not getting hurt.

Would assume McDavid doesn’t want to go pointless in 2 straight, so I’m looking for him to be on fire tonight.

I can understand having Lucic, a vet, paired with Puljujarvi... however I don’t believe this season’s Lucic has been any type of positive role model for the 19 year old Puljujarvi. He plays lazy and selfish and an all together horrid game this year, not exactly what I would want a 19 year old who is still learning the North American game, life and English language, to be paired with.

Oilers in a 7-8-9 tie with the Hawks and Isles right now. Could maybe catch Wings for 6th if everything goes right. Maybe fall to 10th behind Rags in the worst case.

Just lose the last 3 games and you're in 6th or 7th draft position.
