The NHL draft lottery goes tonight and Edmonton Oiler fans could probably organize the event by now. If knowledge of the NHL draft lottery had any value we’d all be lottery winners tonight. Edmonton may pick 1, 2 or 3 overall and none other.
I don’t have much to say on the matter, it’s kind of ridiculous that Edmonton is in a position to get number one again. I’d be in favor of a rule that punishes a team when they finish in a lottery position two years in a row–God knows what I’d be in favor of in the event of a three year trip to the podium.
It’s my opinion most Oiler fans will watch tonight if only to see what Steve Tambellini looks like when he’s uncomfortable. Mike Wallace can’t interview him, but it’s a gonch twister evening for sure.
