A blog by a long time New York Islanders fan who stays true to the fellas wearing orange, white and blue…but thinks the Islanders organization has some shaping up to do.

Draft Lottery Tonight at 8 pm, VERSUS

Well... it's what we've all been waiting for.

The Draft Lottery has been set for tonight at 8 pm, on Versus (check channel listings at end of post if you'd like to tune in).

Under the weighted system of the draft, according to islanders.nhl.com, the team with the fewest points at the end of the season has the highest chance of winning the first overall pick in the draft. That team, fortunately (?), is your very own New York Islanders, who have taken care to lose the last four games of the season and preserve their place in the standings. That said, it would be very, very nice if we were to be rewarded with the top pick, and therefore choose either star forward John Tavares or solid defenseman Victor Hedman. I think that at this point, anyone else would be lesser than for Islanders fans.

Here's where you can find Versus on your cable provider:

Cablevision: 146/408
Cablevision HD: 719
Verizon FiOS: 90/590
DirecTV: 608
Dish Network: 151
Time Warner: 122
