I'd rather get the second overall pick than the first. With first overall, guaranteed the braintrust will overlook the desperate need for a top six scorer and take the so called blablabla "best player available" Larsson. If the Oilers win the lottery, and Lowe and his staff have their heads screwed on properly, they will take Larsson to go with all the young gunners they have, forcing the Sens to take a forward... likely Langeskog.
The race is on!!! This is way more exciting than any of the Sens games prior to the trade deadline purge.
