  4. Devils select Nico Hischier #1 overall in 2017 Draft

    He probably contracted some disease the night of June 23rd and the symptoms are just starting to show

    Is the scrimmage being livestreamed?

    Hah, I dont want to make this about HF, but I've been warned by mods there several times. I can't outright come at people; more like subtle pot shots that still make them go gaga.

    If he actually uses his shot this year, I could see him hitting 20 goals. Too many times, I saw him pass up an open look, when he should've ripped one. He arguably has the best shot (Henrique is also in the discussion) on the team

    Was just watching some Zacha highlights and man is his shot a big +++. Anyone think he'll take Cammalleri's spot as the triggerman on PP2? He really thrived there in juniors

    Paved Zacha is a beast!

    Ha one simple comment riles up like 10 people. The real estate inside their heads is getting mighty expensive.

    Oh yeah, not concerned at all. His biggest focus for summer is getting stronger, so I wouldnt doubt that he's hardly stepped on the ice. Like soccer, you can run all you want, but until you get into soccer (or hockey) shape, you're gonna be gassed.

    I was holding out hope that Wood learned how to play hockey in 3 months, but I was askign way too much. What a meathead

    Met the great Sundstrom today, which was cool. Unfortunately, Nico's and Zacha's teams were on the other side of the arena for 3 of the 4 games. Nico came over after the first two games and he looked pretty gassed to be honest. He gave an interview yesterday saying he hasnt been on the ice much and it sort of showed. Of course, he showed off great hands and edgework, but that extra gear wasnt there. Still, you can tell he's quite the talent and even potted home a goal. Wish we would've gotten another game on our side, but beggars cant be choosers. Would like to hear from people who saw him in 3 of the 4. From what I heard, he scored a highlight reel goal in the first game. Zacha, same deal, we only saw him once. He scored on a bullet of a one timer and won the shootout for his team in the first game. He looked among the best we saw all day, as he should. The big winner, in my opinion, was Jesper Boqvist. Had the treat of watching him in every game and he absolutely dominated. His hands and vision are top notch. Even more impressive since his his game is built on speed and he obviously didnt have much room to operate. Popugaev was another guy who stood out in a good way. He's 6'5 and a pretty good skater. He and McLeod looked very good together. This isnt the type of drill McLeod excels in, but I thought he was good. Like I said, he and Big Poppy showed great chemistry together. McLeod's hands are much more impressive than I realized. Really liked Reilly Walsh and Blake Speers as well. BTW, Miles Wood is the worst. The guy was absolutely terrible in this drill and still hasnt learned how to play hockey. He was taking runs at people and was constantly fumbling the puck and making terrible passes. . All in all, it was a well put together event by the Devils. Hope some high quality videos surface.
