Please, please, please let it be the Columbus Blue Jackets, Florida Panthers, Tampa Lightning or New York Islanders whose ball falls first out of that stupid lottery machine tonight.
I do not want to hear about Phil Kessel for Taylor Hall or Tyler Seguin for the rest of my life, despite the fact that I support this trade.
Update: Toronto’s pick will be the 2nd overall pick in this year’s draft. Peter Chiarelli and Tyler Seguin were kind of making googly eyes at one another, I thought. Meanwhile, Taylor Hall’s lips will almost certainly freeze right off within four months of his arrival in Edmonton.
