Parade to McDavid, perhaps.

Not sure anyone can match the Oilers in futility.

The Leafs have the exact same record as us. They'll be just fine.

Don't throw your jersey on the ice in protest either, or you'll be arrested.

Not arrested - they were ticketed and banned for a year. Probably had to pay a fine that cost them less than the jerseys they threw.

This is hilarious.

Oh that is good. Might need to email that to a bunch of people. Or better yet, post it on Facebook.

I'm legitimately surprised that they imploded as they did. They fired their coach when they were 21-16-3 and sitting in a playoff spot because the analytics looked bad, and since then their analytics have improved but they're something like 2-13-2. Go figure.

Yeah, this is a collapse of epic proportions. I didn't think they'd fall this far.

Now I find myself in the weird position of actually cheering for them to win some games because if they win the lottery I will vomit.

Right now they're at an 8.5% chance, which is too damn high for my liking. Factoring in the odds of the Oilers winning as well as the marginal chance of the Kings winning it, the Total Vomit Index (TVI) is at 22% right now.

God, I hope Buffalo wins the lottery. They deserve it.

I think I will actually puke if Toronto gets McDavid. Could you imagine? That poor kid? In that environment????????

I wouldn't feel sorry for the kid. He grew up just outside Toronto and was a Leafs fan his whole life. If they drafted him he'd be hailed as the saviour of his favourite team and treated like royalty. From the interviews he's given it sounds like that's where he'd go if given the choice.

Yeah, let Buffalo win. Or Columbus, that's a nice safe destination. New Jersey. If he really must go somewhere in the West, Dallas or Colorado. No Toronto, no Edmonton, and please-oh-please may the Powers-That-Be forbid the doomsday scenario where the Canucks miss the playoffs by a point and win the lottery.

Buffalo's intentionally trading away players to tank, not sure how supportive I am of them winning the lottery.

Someone out of left field would be nice. A nice benign team like Columbus or Dallas maybe?
