Will NBCSN carry the draft lottery next Monday?

 

If not, NHL Network will or worst case NHL.com.

Thursday's Games of Interest
Philadelphia vs. Islanders
New Jersey vs. Pittsburgh
Calgary vs. St. Louis
Dallas vs. Columbus

Carolina, Tampa Bay, Florida, Nashville, and Winnipeg all play games that affect the draft lottery standings but not the Devils position.

The only way Gelinas looks awesome in a 6-5 loss is if he gets a goal and an assist on each of Elias' goals.

Still some games going on that can impact the Devils, but with the bulk of the tonight's action done, the Devils can finish between 9th and 12th in the draft lottery standings. I think a Dallas win tonight would make that range shrink to 9th and 11th.

These standings take games remaining into account. Only the Phoenix game tomorrow will affect the Devils draft position. Things got a lot clearer now.

Giroux was more like 22nd ovr I think, or something in the 20's

 

More closer to our pick wise, Erik Karlsson, just as a forward. you van pretty much though class Karlsson as a forward though.

 

He was picked 15th ovr

Yeah yeah what i meant is that you never know we could pick a guy 12th or someone picking 24th could endup with the best player in the long run

If we lose in regulation to the Rangers, only the Flyers game matters tonight cause our spot in the lottery would be 9 or 10.  If we get at least a point, only the Phoenix/Dallas games matter cause our range would be 10-12.
