Our minds can barely accept the events of last night but they are so very true. The Edmonton Oilers won the draft lottery that mattered and have hockey's latest chosen one in their sights. There are myriad stories surrounding the Oilers and McDavid but there's only one thing that matters this morning. They won the damn lottery!

We did it! I can't believe the Oilers won the lottery! McDavid is coming to Edmonton!... probably.
More to come.

Winning the lottery is one thing. Hanging onto that wealth, spending it wisely and building on it, be it the first overall pick in the NHL Entry Draft or millions of dollars by way of a lucky ticket, is quite another.

Do you feel lucky Oilers fans?
For the 5th time in franchise history the Oilers have a chance to win the lottery and receive the first overall pick. The odds are different this season, and ironically the four teams whose odds decreased from previous years, Buffalo, Arizona, Edmonton and Toronto, all have a shot at the first overall pick, but all of them also have two first round selections in what is considered the deepest draft in the NHL since 2003.
