Probably not, but could we move up our in game draft lottery?
NHL is holding theirs next Tues before the playoffs start.
For us it has no effect at all on the playoff teams as their positions will be determined by how they fare in the playoffs.
So it's only those 15 teams who didn't make it, and knowing your draft spot further ahead of the expansion draft allows more time to formulate a plan.
Plus with RFA extensions happening prior to the lottery that also could have an affect on what teams do.
Let's say your pick ends up landing higher than expected, that could be enough to change your mind on signing an RFA or using him as trade bait.
As always, just thinking out loud and not complaining about the process.
It's likely no one else in game agrees with this idea anyway but sharing is caring.
That and I can be impatient and don't wanna wait another 37 days to find out where my picks land. Not 10 days prior to expansion draft starting.
