Rangers have 1% odds to win NHL Draft Lottery tonight

The NY Rangers have 1% odds of lightning striking a third time and winning the 2021 NHL Draft lottery. The lottery will be held tonight at 7pm, and will be broadcast on NBCSN.

In the extremely likely event the Rangers do not win the lottery, they will pick 15th in the 2021 Draft. Remember, Arizona will not have a first round pick this year, so everyone after 11 gets bumped up a spot. That’s already good fortune for the Rangers.

There is one change this year, as the Rangers can only get one of the top two picks. There will only be two drawings, as opposed to three in prior years. The other changes, including moving up a max of 10 spots, will not be implemented until 2022.

So it’s #1, #2, or #15 for the Rangers after tonight.

  • Not the greatest draft, but it would be hilarious and almost fitting if we could get #1 or #2 — as karma for the Wilson incident.

    • With you Tanto!!! Let’s drive them crazy one last time before we wait another 55 years to get the #1 pick (I’ll be dead by then anyway)! I have been reading that Beniers compares favourably to Matt Barzal so that would be a great addition if we won…1% chance…oh well…I’m hoping they pick L’Heureux (Marchand comparison), McTavish or Bolduc at 15.

  • Well, if there is a year to have the 15th pick, this is it. Soft top part of the draft but deep through the 15th pick.

    Can we draft a center please? Hoping Sillinger falls to them, if at 15.

  • Another interesting part of this draft is the COVID impact….every year some players shoot up the draft charts between October and April. This year, the OHL didn’t even play while other leagues played a handful of games. All this to say that some really good players might be available in later rounds and we have 2 thirds (including the first one in the third) and 3 fourths….

  • 1st, 2nd or 15th — either way I have a feeling we are trading this pick to upgrade our center spot. Drury will be put to the test no matter what, so we shall see!
    It would be absolutely GLORIOUS though to see the look on GMs faces tonite if we snag one of the top picks!

  • What would be really humorous if the Rangers got the #1 or #2 pick is to see the reaction of Stevie Y, crying and rolling around on the floor like a little baby.
