As always, be wary of ads and spam. Worst of all, this stream has NBA schedule reveal on ESPN going right now. But stream is workong great!


NHL Streams on Reddit is shut down. Sad face.

I’ll be disappointed if the Wings don’t get #1.

I’ll be furious if N.J. , or Buffalo get #1.

I’ll be apoplectic if E, F, G, or H get #1.  grrr

An at large team got the number one pick. So who will it be Pittsburgh or Chicago. Fix, Fix, Fix.

With Ottawa getting the #1 pick, the Wings are now by far the team that has gotten the shaft worse than any other in the past 4 years of draft lotteries.  It’s not even close.

Doesn’t this make 3 years running the Wings have moved down in the draft lottery? We done been fooked again.

Sorry, meant to say with Ottawa not dropping more than 1 spot….not getting first.

Well, shit.

Bright side: Detroit will get Tim Stutzle or Quinton Byfield, because you *know* Pierre Dorion is going to blow it with #3. He’ll take the goalie or something.

Just so it’s clear on how stupid this whole thing is.  At this point in time there are 24 teams in the NHL with a chance at either the Stanley Cup or the top pick over all.  Then there are 7 teams that just got the double barrel middle finger from Bettman and the NHL.

The 8 teams that lose in the first round of the Covid Cup will each have a 12.5% chance of picking first overall. That’s better odds than the entire field, apart from Detroit and Ottawa.

A playoff team passing the historically bad Wings for first overall pick is pretty on par with 2020, tho.

Thank you for the correction. However, it does not make me feel any better.  confused

When one of the unknown teams in the play in games suddenly has multiple players come down with C-19 “symptoms” in an effort to win the lottery and #1 pick don’t be surprised….. confused

ROFL, that 50.6% chance paid off.

four years in a row.

I honestly thought that was a bald Jeff Blashill holding down the Red Wings booth.

I know how you feel. Bettman became NHL Commissioner in February 1993. Guess what season the Red Wings were stuck into the Western Conference with the worst travel schedule? That’s right, the 1993-94 Season. shock

I counted in one playoff they had to travel through 27 time zones during the playoffs.

Only Gary could come up with a way to try and stop tanking in the regular season, but give the #1 pick to a team that tanks in the playoffs. Slow clap, Gary.

If not posted earlier, if the playoffs are not completed, all 8 teams in the play in round will have an equal shot at at the #1 pick.

Posted by Paul from Motown Area on 06/26/20 at 08:46 PM ET

Paul's avatar

Correction per Elliotte Friedman,

If, for whatever reason, the play-in cannot be completed….the remaining bottom 8 teams will have a one-in-eight shot at the top selection
