    This season fucking sucked.

    I can’t do another like this. I need some hope moving forward or else I’ll be as checked out at the start of next season as I was at the end of this one. I basically haven’t watched a full game since the deadline.

    Next year starts Tuesday. A lucky bounce would be nice.

    Why? Are you looking forward to the disappointment and tears after they drop 2 spots?

    Dream Scenario:

    1) Win lottery.
    2) Jets lose 1st round, Dallas reaches WCF, TB wins Cup.
    3) Draft 4 1st round players (#1, #18-21 WPG, #28-30 DAL, #31 TB).
    4) Sign Panarin.

    Likely Scenario:

    1) Drop 2 spots in the draft lottery.
    2) Jets win the Cup. Dallas loses first round.
    3) Draft 2 busts in the 1st round at #8 and #31.
    4) Sign middle 6 players like Dzingel.

    @rmc51 - Yup! You nailed what each of us is thinking but don't want to say out loud. Let's hope, pray and "think good thoughts" that the balls will bounce our way -- so we don't all feel like we got kicked in the balls.

    There's no doubt in my mind that it starts with Buffalo at #1.

    That A+ level tanking will atleast earn them a top 3 pick.

    I just think it would be all too convenient for Vancouver (Brother) or Detroit (been living there) to win it

    Looking through the roster again, I think it would make sense to give DeAngelo and Buchnevich 1 year contracts. Neither has been consistently productive to warrant much money or multiple years. If they earn it, pay them next summer when Flab-Four Forwards come off the books.

    I can't see them giving DeAngelo anything long term based on his "maturity issues." 1 or 2 years max. Buch on the other hand seemed to turn a corner. Not sure what he'll get.
