  2. Ok, it's official, but I'm still gonna root for the team, sorry everyone.
    Look at it this way, even if they win, they might not move in the standings, win-win for all.

  3. Great song, moeman. I used to watch his recent show "spectacle" and when Dianna Krall was on, he did not do the interview because they are married, so he handed the reins over to another quest(again I forget who).

  4. I don't care if they're eliminated. GO HABS GO!

    Also, is it October yet?

  5. Here's some good news (if my math is right).

    If the sabres win just two and the sens just one of their last 6 games, the leafs are eliminated. But of course, who wouldn't want to see them get even closer to give them a little hope, then take it away.

    Here's a funny scenario: Montreal wins the draft lottery and has the No.1 pick. At the draft Brian Burke walks up to the Canadiens' table and.....

    1. Makes you wonder (again) about the officiating.

      "Worse, Dan O’Halloran got away with it – again. The same referee who watched Sedin get punched in the face repeatedly against Boston during the playoffs without blowing a whistle. This time, O’Halloran gave Keith a ridiculous two minutes, begging the question: does O’Halloran have a secret hate on for the Sedins? Is he Don Cherry with a striped shirt and a whistle, standing idly by when Swedish players are injured?"

      Ha Ha!! You're watching Hockey Central too, EVERYBODY is going to Toronto. They do every year. What a fucking joke!

      Won't take much to entice Columbus to flip the #1 for #2, a prospect or Gomez and Kaberle.... They have been burned by to many Russkies, Zherdev, Filatov....They'll take Ryan Murray.

      Wait! Burke is going to get the #1 pick and Nash and Parise! Fuck, he must be the best GM in the world! Plan the parade for next spring.

  17. Can someone explain to me how Columbus can be odds n favourite to have the first pick? If I understand this draft correctly they take the five worst teams (or whoever has their pick) and put them in a hat. So that surely would mean that each of the 5 teams has a 1 in 5 chance of getting the number 1 pick...or is this a lottery that is pre-determined by Buttman?

    2. Was just looking it up - apparently no team can lose anymore than 1 place off of where they finish and no team can improve by more than 4 spots. So if the Habs finish 2nd worse the worst pick they get is 3rd...so whoever has the worst record can do no worse than 2nd pick.

    3. Selection order and Draft lottery

      The selection order in the Entry Draft is determined by a combination of lottery, regular season standing, and playoff results. However, teams are permitted to trade draft picks. In all cases, the team considered is the original holder of the draft pick, not a team which may have acquired the pick via a trade or other means.[5][6]

      At the conclusion of the regular season, the 14 NHL teams not qualifying for the playoffs are entered in a weighted lottery to determine the initial draft picks in the first round, seeded according to regular season standing. The 30th-place team has a 25% chance of winning the lottery, with odds diminishing to a 0.5% chance for the 17th-place team. A single selection from the lottery pool is made, with the winning team improving its draft position by up to four places, and no team dropping more than one place. Therefore, only the 26th through 30th place teams are eligible to receive the first overall draft pick.[7][8] Consequently, the 30th place team's chance of retaining the first overall pick improves to 48.2%.[5] The order in the remaining rounds is unaffected by the lottery and is based on regular season standings.

      The remaining order is determined by the Stanley Cup playoff results.[8] Whichever team wins the Stanley Cup is awarded the 30th and last pick, while the runner-up is given the 29th pick. The teams eliminated in the conference finals are awarded the 28th and 27th picks, with the 28th pick going to the team with the better regular season record. Remaining division winners, then the rest of the field are ranked next, filling in the 26th through 15th picks. In both cases, better records result in later picks.[6]

      When teams lose their rights to a first round draft choice, because that player was not signed to a contract and consequently re-entered the entry draft or became an unrestricted free agent, they are awarded a compensatory draft pick. This selection will be the same numerical choice as the first round draft pick who was not signed, but in the second round. For example, if a team cannot sign the seventh overall first round draft choice, it will receive the seventh pick in the second round of the next draft as compensation.[9]

  19. "Ontario’s top court has legalized brothels and will allow prostitutes to have security and other staff that is specifically aimed at protecting prostitutes. In a landmark decision Monday, the court said that prostitution is extremely dangerous work where inherent risks are multiplied by laws preventing prostitutes from working together under one roof or hiring security staff. Commencing next year, a five-judge panel said unanimously, prostitutes in any part of the province can work legally in brothels that will be operated like ordinary businesses. As of April 25, they can engage bodyguards or security staff."

      Are you kidding me? Look at all the extra taxes that will be collected. 13% on every BJ and romp. Harper and Flaherty are laughing all the the way to the Central Bank.

      I'm surprised this didn't happen in Quebec first. Aren't you Quebecois considered more liberal than Ontarians?

    The NoDicks will return eventually. There are too many loser franchises in the South. I think the Remparts can survive they seem to have a decent fan base. I still think St. Patrick is coming to Montreal in some capacity.
