Going in Jackets hold 6th and 12th. If the 6 goes up to 1 or 2, then we get Chicago's pick next year. 12 can only go up as high as 2.

Current odds:
Draft Lottery Participants Odds
Montreal Canadiens 18.5%
Arizona Coyotes 13.5%
Seattle Kraken 11.5%
Philadelphia Flyers 9.5%
New Jersey Devils 8.5%
Chicago Blackhawks * 7.5%
Ottawa Senators 6.5%
Detroit Red Wings 6.0%
Buffalo Sabres 5.0%
Anaheim Ducks 3.5%
San Jose Sharks 3.0%
Columbus Blue Jackets 2.5%
New York Islanders 2.0%
Winnipeg Jets 1.5%
Vancouver Canucks 0.5%
Vegas Golden Knights ** 0.5%

THN top 10 projected picks:

Some have Conor Geekie dropping from likely top five to out of the top ten in some rankings which is juts fine with me. If the Jackets can wind up with one of Savoie, Nemec, Slafkovsky or Jiricek AND Geekie I will be stoked.

And there is some scuttlebutt originating out of Montreal that they will trade 1OA for two other firsts and a prospect. If the Jackets could land 1OA for Foudy and our two picks even better. Sillinger pretty much stolen Foudy's spot on the depth chart.

Vegas can't move to #1, best they can do is move up to 6.

You'll just have to wait until Crosby announces his retirement.

Any college sized arenas in Pittsburgh?

Ok, Chicago picks 1, Philly picks 2 and Vegas picks 6. No need to watch.

Then Chicago implodes, giving the Blue Jackets first overall next year for Bedard?

I can live with that.

Might be the first time in recent memory that the Canucks haven’t fallen in the draft.

/my memory isn’t that good so who knows

This is a success for us lol

Thought for sure THIS was gonna be the year that the Canucks would win the lottery … since they changed the rules and teams could only move up a max of 10 spots :ohwell:

I always find it fascinating when Canucks fan are upset when we don't move up .. it's like you have a bad cut and you pour rubbing alcohol on it and it stings beyond belief but we really believed that this time it wouldn't hurt

Vegas doesn't have their own pick.

That's a shame.

Arizona and Seattle are the only two to move down.


That is also a shame.
