Got a chance? Florida Panthers need lottery luck to land Alexis Lafreniere

Alexis Lafreniere Draft

Any consolation for the Florida Panthers’ disappearing act on Friday afternoon could come Monday night as they have a chance to draft a potential superstar in Alexis Lafreniere.

The Panthers are one of eight teams — all the playoff qualifier losers — who have a 12.5% chance to win the coveted top pick in the October draft and the rights to Lafreniere.

For the Panthers, being able to snare such a talented player should supersede whatever happened against the Islanders last week.

If Florida’s logo happens to be on the lucky ping pong ball Monday evening, losing to the Islanders should be viewed as a blessing.

After all, the Panthers (as the second-lowest seed behind Montreal) would have played the Tampa Bay Lightning in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Don’t think they would have fared very well there.
