That is the dumbest thing I have ever seen. A draft lottery where a team TBD will get the first pick based on another lottery in a few weeks. You know the Pens have been told to lose their play in round and then the NHL will make sure they get the first pick.  The hostess on tv is almost as confused as I am by it all.

The idea that a playoff team can pick first seems really odd.

Technically I think they are calling the first series play-in or something like that. The real playoffs don’t start until after that. But the whole thing is just dumb.

Yep. Great news. When I first read about the cancer he has did not seem like good news.  It spread fast and even survivors often lose limbs and such.  Sounds like they caught his early.

The Seattle Kracken?  Really?  Do they not get that everyone will call them the "Krack"?

Red Wings got so hosed. The conspiracy theorist in me says that this whole convoluted process was designed with the sole purpose of screwing over Detroit. Or helping the Penguins.

Crackheads

At least the logo is pretty good.  I feel like Sockeyes would've been the most fitting, but maybe they didn't want to go with the fighting connotation.

The correct answer was the Sasquatch.

I agree that Sockeyes would have been great, or the crabs considering the are is known for its dungeness crabs but I guess that has some potential for abuse as well.

Eh, everything looks like something, when it comes to art/design.  We root for the Walgreens logo.  The S still looks good to me - the little red eye is perfect.

OTOH...

Yeah, the unis are not good.  Never liked that color scheme for the Titans, and don't like it for this team.

I feel like they should have asked the Canucks to go back to their black/yellow/orange and gone with blue/green (to go along with the rest of Seattle's teams).

FWIW, ESPN picks for the round robin and play-in rounds.
