    Staal, Smith, Buchnevich among those entering final year of contract. I'm in favor of patience and one or two upgrades, letting contracts expire, and thinking about who we are building around for 2021-2022. I think we can improve, make the playoffs next year, while continuing to build for a brighter future.

    Can the Rangers get fortunate two years in a row of the Draft Lottery? lol I'll be interested to see the movement (if any) of draft day. It could be interesting, not necessarily with New York, I mean, just in general.

    — And there is the $81.5M flat cap with which to contend. If the team buys out Henrik Lundqvist, that will leave approximately $17.39M with which to sign one goaltender, two defensemen and six forwards. (DeAngelo, Strome, Alexandar Georgiev, Brendan Lemieux and Phil DiGiuseppe are impending RFA’s).

    If Lundqvist retires, that’s a whole different story, for the team would then have nearly $21M of space with which to work. If Lundqvist remains a Ranger, the team would have approximately $14.4M of space.

    If the other higher seeded teams win does that increase the Rangers chances of getting #1?

    No. It's a straight 1 in 8 (12.5%) shot for the top pick. But it does matter for where we pick if we DON'T get the magic slot for #1.

    Unless Pittsburgh or Edmonton lose in the play in.. If either lose they immediately have a 93.8% chance of winning the top pick.. If both lose, despite mathematical probabilities saying otherwise, they each have a 78% chance of getting the #1 pick.

    It's super weird how the NHLs winner sheet looks just like Pitt and EDMs and nothing like the rest of them

    It really should be weighted by points per game. Hard to tell why they did it this way. Did they really think teams were going to throw the play in round?

    Lottery win aside, the Rangers are in a good place so far to get a top 10 pick. Arizona, Montreal, and Chicago leading in their series. Should they all win the Rangers will pick 10th. They can pick as high as 9th if the Jets comes back in their series.

    You take the initial probability and divide by 8. Take the remainder, square it, then retrieve the factorial of the result. Then add the number of letters in the city name of the team being calculated.

    All 8 of the losing teams have a 1 in 8 or 12.5% chance at the top pick. Unless you know of some oddity of Bettman freezing envelopes or taking a ride on Ron Burkle's plane, at a loss where you are getting this. Lots of memes how there's a 25% chance if both the Pens and Oilers lose Lafreneire will end up on one of those teams, which is the math if that were to happen.
