Just about every fan feels like a winner after the NHL draft. You can look over the mind-blowing junior numbers of the player your team just selected and imagine them doing something similar for your favorite NHL team. It's quite the nice feeling.

Hope reigns supreme in the hours and days after the conclusion of the draft.

Allow me to destroy any of those good feelings with this slideshow.

Some teams did very well for themselves over the past two days. Other teams didn't do all that great but still have time to recover before the start of free agency on July 1. And other teams did so poorly that it makes you wonder if there's nothing more than a hamster on a wheel in the general manager's office.

Here's a look at the winners and losers in the aftermath of this year's draft.
