@HHT Peter Pocklington was such a great evil genius.  He bought Gretzky from the Indianapolis Racers for a few hundred thousand bucks and then had him sign a personal services contract.  If Gretzky had not been subject to that sort of contract, he would have ended up in the 1979 NHL entry draft pool.  And probably would have been drafted by the Colorado Rockies

If the Leafs got McDavid, I would still advocate trading much of the core and sticking to a rebuild.  Might still keep JVR and Phanuef in those circumstances.  Maybe dip a bit deeper in the wallet for better UFAs to play with him until the other prospects are ready.

@mcloki I like what Amy from Big Bang Theory said about Raiders of the Lost Ark:

“Indiana Jones plays no role in the outcome of the story. If he weren’t in the film, it would turn out exactly the same… If he weren’t in the movie, the Nazis would still have found the Arks, taken it to the island, opened it up, and all died, just like they did.”

This brand new NHL draft simulator - the new one which accords with the lotto balls - would be a neat little thing to have going during the lottery.  You can see the Leafs chances rising or falling as each ball is picked.

@LoovTrain @Cameron19 @MaxwellHowe Campbell would have a fit...he'd probably just retire

Ok, so I  see a rumor is vaguely floating around....now leaving aside what you might think of Phil Kessel and Dion Phaneuf,  I find it impossible to imagine, after this Leafs' season, that one team would want both of these players.  One, sure.. Both?

@Dogger no no no....there are so many on that list I don't want to see again

@Jon5200 Not sure they could produce that many.  Might have to open up a few new sweat shops in East Asia.

@LN-093 @Bruffins If not the Leafs, IMO, Arizona is the best destination from a Leaf perspective.  Won't see him as much, which is a drag, but he won't be killing us regularly either

Just looking at the 2013 draft - that was an insane crop of young players.  

Top 20 - MacKinnon, Barkov, Drouin, Jones, Lindholm, Monaghan, Nurse, Ristolainen, Horvat, Nishkushkin, Morin, Domi, Morrisey, Wennberg, Pulock, Zadorov, Lazar, Mueller, Rychel, Mantha.  

Not hard to imagine every single one of those players becoming an NHL regular.

If this year is like 2013, moving from 4th to 5th might be relatively meaningless.  Monaghan might go as high as 2nd if this was held in retrospect.

Of mcourse, in 2013, the Leafs had the 21st pick......because, why not?

@Dogger Good point.  If you look back over the last few years, there has often been criticisms of choices made in the 2-5 range.  Drouin instead of Seth Jones, for instance.  Perhaps its best if the Leafs are 5th and we let someone else make the mistake this year.

@Mitch_S2 Something to be said for that.   In our discussions we have about Kessel, we forget the draw he would be in the US.  Flashy, exciting, American Olympian...no doubt ups his trade value

Rielly - Hanifin - Gardiner (yes, Jake Gardiner) - that trio could one day give the Leafs one of the best, most mobile puck moving defensive corps in the NHL

@totalrebuild Top 2 Dmen are nearly as rare as #1 centres.  Its not like everything rides on the Leafs getting that C this year; I think Hanifin would be a great addition to the Leafs.  Look at the D heavy Predators.  Nary a decent centre, but an incredible group of defencemen.  Seems to have worked out.

Besides, if the core is jettisoned this summer, i would expect 1 or 2 more years of top 5 picks to come.  That big time centre will be here one day.

@HopeNeverDies LOL on Europe.  Please.  You mean the hockey leagues that feature teams obscured by advertisments on their unis?  Or the soccer teams which have corporate symblos front and center on their shirts?

@Jay_Berg This is a fair point, but it only seems like that because of who the # 1 pick will be this year.

Aside from the suspense and anticipation and all that, really curious to see how the NHL/Rogers packages the draft lottery.  if its just the draw, .... well...that'll be over quick.  If they do the countdown, better suspense, but as soon as a team is not in its spot in the countdown, the drama is over.
