  1. not bad. I like bernier. not afraid to fight in front of crease
  2. low risk, the only downside is that he takes a roster spot from someone else like a boucher or matteau. However, those kids need to earn that spot (so does havlat), so not a major deal. hopefully he can play at least 2/3 of the seasons games.
  3. we got cammalieri 5 yrs 5mil per, 25 total
  4. Without Harris getting us #30, here is what our draft would have looked like: 2 11 41 NJD JOSHUA JACOBS D USA 6' 1" 193 USHL INDIANA 3 11 71 NJD CONNOR CHATHAM RW USA 6' 2" 222 OHL PLYMOUTH 5 11 131 NJD RYAN REHILL D CAN 6' 2" 210 WHL KAMLOOPS 6 2 152 NJD JOEY DUDEK C USA 5' 11" 180 HIGH-NH KIMBALL UNION 6 11 161 NJD BRANDON BADDOCK LW CAN 6' 3" 205 WHL EDMONTON EDIT: I apologize if this has caused you to lose your lunch.
  5. It's impossible to forecast, but the feeling today is severe disappointment. Looking at the picks, it's hard to be excited about, or see much upside in any of them. We're going to need a big surprise or turn around from someone in this draft class, and that's not a given. Our team has not been in this bad of shape roster, depth, and prospect wise in 25 years. Instead of taking steps forward we plop out a draft like this. I just don't see how these picks are solid building blocks for the future unless we think the future stanley cup winning teams will be a lineup of all 3rd and 4th liners.
  6. We got a D in Jacobs
  7. Barbashev gone now too
  8. yeah, that was quick. hopefully we can move on now.
  9. Barbashev seems like an exciting player, but every year I pin my hopes on a specific pick, and it never happens (for good or bad). The draft is a roller coaster of hope and disappointment. I think 2003 is the only year I was super psyched afterwards with the Parise pick. Hopes were pinned on these guys previously: 2013: Lindholm (picked a few spots ahead of our traded pick) 2012: Nicolas Kerdiles (Matteau) 2011: Gabriel Landeskog (picked 2 spots before Larsson) 2010: Justin Faulk (picked 1 spot ahead of Merrill) 2009: Kyle Palmieri, John Moore, or Jordan Schroeder (Josefson). Schroeder is kind of a bust at this point. 2008: John Carlson (we picked Tedenby. Still disappointed about not grabbing Carlson)
  10. Agreed. Let's just win. LGD!
  11. I don't think they deserved this loss tonight. Pretty tough pill.
  12. Even if we did get a top pick in the draft, it doesn't matter because we'll mismanage their development anyway.
  13. Man, I just can't get excited about this team roster this year. I might be excited by the future, but the way the coaching staff has been managing our players of the future is just mortgaging everything.
  14. Here's a recent video of him (from one month ago at the 2013 combine). Most questions are geared towards the Jets, but still worth watching if you're interested in this prospect. http://video.jets.nhl.com/videocenter/console?id=252299
  15. Yeah I agree with that RE: goalies There's always the talk about whether the devils will go after a brodeur replacement in the draft. It never really seems to happen, but you never know.
