Today's the big day. It's the NHL draft lottery. It's being televised, all part of what I believe is a ploy by the Canadian media to milk the popularity of the Leafs for all it's worth. But that aside, this is the biggest day of the year for five cities. If you're confused, here's a great explanation from Andy Grabia and the Good Doctor. The short version is that only five teams have a shot at the number one pick. That's the five worst in the league, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Atlanta, Tampa and my Islanders. They were only one point clear of Columbus, so suck it Ohio.
The lottery takes place at 8pm and the results will be up here as soon as I can put them up.
