T-6th most wins in NHL and have to face the best team in the first round. Damn the lack of OT/SO losses!

A Calgary win would be great, actually. I'm all for a non Sens/Habs Canadian winner.

OK, official rules of the confidence challenge. Ya'll know how this works. Each round you pick the winner of each series, in order of how confident you are. "In what amount of games" doesn't matter. No official tiebreaker, tiebreaker TBD during the finals if necessary (it usually isn't). All picks must be finalized before the start of the first series in that particular round. The only exception to this is if in future rounds, a round starts before the previous one fully ends. We'll deal with that when we get there. If you want to change your picks, delete your old post and put up an entire new one. Do not delete your post after the round has started.

Everyone clear?

Or some playoff team needs to make a deal where they acquire a first round pick and bingo bango you win the Stanley cup and get a first overall pick in the same year.

Tweet from Taylor Hall:

"They talk about Gretzkys 92 goals or Sittlers 10 pts in one game as records that may never be broken. But winning 5 draft lotteries in your first 9 years in the league? In 2 different draft lottery eras, no less. That is a record that will stand forever."

oh man, I'm so happy 3 teams leapfrogged Ottawa. Truly their greatest achievement this year.

And there you go Shadow Dino - this'll work out better for the Hawks than squeaking into the playoffs. Shame there's no defencemen projected that high up in the draft though!

We're pretty sure there's no way the Devils or Rangers screw up their pick right? The last time the Blackhawks picked third the two teams ahead of them whiffed on their picks, worked out pretty well.

There's this Bowen Byram guy on some charts and if it's all a crapshoot after Hughes and Kaako, might as well take a swing? I'm not a fan of picking Vasili Podkolzin if he's two years away; the Blackhawks can't afford to waste anymore prime Kane and Toews years.

The amount of Twitter salt from the Blackhawks getting the #3 pick is delectable.

Search up "Blackhawks rigged" if you want some laughs.

If LA was in the top 3 instead of NJ I'd probably declare shenanigans, since it'd be pretty lucky the three biggest markets got top picks (Chicago is #3 right?)

I'm still riding high on the fact Ottawa didnt give away a top 2 overall pick.

This has been my stance since it happened. Toronto was just as eligible during that draft.

Edit: Its also a pretty well established fact that the NHL has no love for the Oilers.
