Just imagine how feverish the young man must be. The chances of ending up in an excellent organization are good, which will inevitably help its development.
5 of the 8 clubs in the lottery already have a very good left winger.
Lafreniere would be the 2nd AG option, perfect for its development.

But clearly not everyone has the same level of enthusiasm for the lottery. Among the players, especially the players who are still alive, there is nothing very interesting about it.
Talk to Dale Weise. The Canadiens forward has said he couldn’t give a fuck more and he believes his teammates won’t watch what is happening more.
For the 16 teams alive, it’s a distraction.
We’re focused on the series here. We are preparing for Philadelphia. I don’t think anyone on the team is concerned about the draft lottery. – Dale Weise
Obviously, it’s safe to say that Weise won’t be in the NHL in a few weeks. So it may not affect him.

That said, the NHL guys don’t worry about the draft and what surrounds it. Martin Biron, while on the mike for the Athletic Support podcast last week, said the guys didn’t give a fuck either.
He said during his years in Philadelphia he never really knew who the Flyers’ first choice was in the last draft. He wasn’t following it, just like most of his teammates.
This is intended as an answer to those who thought that the Canadian, present “by default” in the bubble, would tanker in order to obtain a 12.5% chance of obtaining the product of the Rimouski Oceanic.
Obviously, the guys get high with the means at hand. Transactions, signatures and hopes are not their responsibility.

– Do you believe it?
He’s very close with Bergevin and he’s bilingual, have to wonder if he takes over the Senior Advisor role in Montreal that Rick Dudley had before going to Carolina. https://t.co/hossOu70Sn
