  1. Please, oh please, let Lumbus get the first pick with such bad odds! After a decade of sucking and never landing the sweetest consolation prize surely means the hockey gods are bound to continue defying logic and spit in Florida’s eye, right?

    • make that two votes for #Lumbus. I was really rooting for those guys and they’re gonna need all the help they can get playing in the East next season.

      • #Lumbus has sympathy on their side, but I’m pulling for Tampa because Jones would fit into their lineup so freaking perfectly.

        I think we’re all agreed that, for the good of hockey, Jones has to go to a US team, right? He’s too good a story to wind up toiling away in Calgary or Edmonton.

  2. I am looking for any competent writer, lengthy time within this area.

    Outstanding write-up!
