Jealous people...

Maybe some of them realize they almost had the Devils and out Cups and got stuck with the Predators.... I'd boo and be upset with that too :D

good point. Remember the Devils were going to be called the Nashvile Cats. I still have the article in my Devils scrap book. :lol:

Hmm this guy for montreal seems like he had some health warnings..

But he has also been called the most talented player in the draft. This could be steal for them.

I know this is old news for all of you but can someone please explain to me how St. Louis tampered with Scott Stevens? I know he was compensation for Shanahan but I don't get the tampering part.

(I'm sure PK would have something to say about anyone tampering with Scott ;) )

The blues had signed Stevens to a contract before July first of the year. Which means that his contract with the Devils had not expired and he was not allowed to talk to anyone other then the Devils without permission. This contract was not valid because it was early, and the Devils matched keeping Steven's services. The league found out this and the swap of picks, taking a first round pick (2001), and 1.5 million dollars was the penalty.

He went really early, was listed at 27 for NA skaters.

With the 12th pick in the 2003 NHL draft, the NY Rangers select.....Hugh Jessiman.....and quickly ink him to a 4 year 45 million dollar deal.

GO DEVILS!!!

Hey, didn't those bastards just pick one of the players we might have gotten?

Yes, yes they picked a big kid with good wheels and hands, who had he fallen to 22(which was damn near impossible) we would have loved to have him.

It has alot to do with the ranking services ranking him in the low 20's and the Devils picking at 22.

GO DEVILS!!
