Random thought of the day. Connor McDavid who was recently names the captain of his hockey club, the Erie Otters, is up for grabs in 2015 draft, does that mean the Flames will compete with the Oilers in the race to the bottom this year?
Sure culture of loosing and all that jazz must play into making decisions like this, but what do the Flames or the Oilers have to lose exactly, this year? Play the young guys and the rest will take care of itself, no deliberate loosing required!
There is also that American kid, Jack Eichel that will probably go second if not first depending on who you ask.
Too bad the NHL changed the lottery odds this season. Will the Flames, Oilers save it for McDavid or recycle for Eichel?
