The results of the NHL draft lottery were just announced, with the top pick going to the Penguins, who will surely draft rising star Sidney Crosby. The Habs got the fifth overall pick, which is not bad considering. We’re the top Canadian team in the lottery, and Toronto is way down there at number 21. (Note to Leafs’ fans: hahaha).
Oh well. It was exciting for a while, as they announced the results backwards from 30 and Montreal still wasn’t on the board for a while. But alas, it’s Pittsburgh fans who are celebrating right now, and hoping Crosby won’t crumble under all the hype and pressure. As one of the worst teams in the NHL in the last number of years, they can really use him.
