So again, why are you rooting for a worse chance to get a top 3 pick this year?
Next year is top 2 protected and the following is 1st protected. But anyways, yeah the 9th place thing is for the sting. Reality is, without some tremendous amount of luck we won't be getting a top 3 pick this year. So I personally prefer a run at the playoffs.
