  1. The Offseason Plan™

    The reason I disagree with this is because there are times when the BPA is substantially better than the other player who fits an organizational need. In the case of this draft, the forwards that will be available at 11 may at best be 2nd line players. That's not to say that legit 2nd line players are not something that the organization needs. But, if a potential #1 D like Chychrun falls to 11 for some reason, he's the type of player you take regardless of organizational need.
  2. The Offseason Plan™

    I agree with this. I would offer Boedker a decent contract, and then trade whatever it takes to get Nishushkin here from Dallas (which I believe you mentioned in another thread). I do think it would cost more than we would like, but I'm all for it. If not Nuke, then maybe go for Yakupov. Cammalleri-Henrique-Palmieri Blandisi-Zajac-Boedker Elias-Zacha-Nichushkin/Yak Kalinin-Josefson-DSP Not great, but a decent core to work with as we move forward.
  3. 2016 Draft

    1 - Toronto 2 - Winnipeg 3 - Columbus
  4. 2016 Draft

    Damn, didn't win
  5. 2016 Draft

    I'm not fully aware of the rules of the NHL lottery w.r.t. how probability is broken down for each of the lottery picks after the first. Does anyone know how likely it is that the Devils get selected for pick 1, 2, or 3? I would assume close to 10% assuming it's around 3% for each.
  6. Devils looking to add offense in the offseason

    does anyone know of any young forwards that may be available for trade? someone like Marko Dano who has the talent but hasn't yet done much at the NHL level?
  7. Devils Sign Joshua Jacobs to ELC

    Shero is going all out!
  8. Zacha call up to the DEVS

    I imagine Zacha will take a lower number once he's a regular. He usually wears 14, so maybe he will take 17 or 18 next season.
  9. Devils Closing in on Signing Miles Wood to ELC

    Good news! Man, I miss TG so much today.
  10. 2016 Draft

    Matthews, Laine, Puljujarvi, Tkachuk, Dubois, Chychrun, Nylander, Sergachev, Juolevi seems to be a pretty consistent top 9. Would be happy if any of these guys falls to 10-12, where NJ is likely to pick. Honestly, I would prefer taking Sergachev over some of the forwards ranked lower. Also, still looking at Dmitry Sokolov for the second round.

  12. 2015–16 Prospect Thread

    FWIW (not very much), Zacha is 5th in points in the OHL playoffs to this point, and everyone ahead of him was drafted a year earlier.
  13. Decent game for Josefson: Goal, 3 shots, 9/11 in faceoffs
  14. New Jersey Devils' Lineup/Roster Thread 2015-16

    It's more about hoping that Mozik turns into something good, rather than making fun of the Rangers, I think. We're hoping Mozik becomes a good player, and it would just be a bonus that we stole him from the Rangers. At best, it would be a situation similar to the Stralman one. Although, I can't say that Stralman would have been in the Devils' long term future.

    This Sarnia/Soo series is turning out to be very interesting. I'm very excited about all 4 of the prospects involved.
