No, but I see BBQ sauce in the near future!!!

Some people really bring down the quality of the board. You're one of them.

Thank You, Simon Cowell. maybe you can start your own board with all your stuffed animals as posters.

Boy. I'm glad we have guys like Pilgrim's err I mean Devils Pride around to make sure every post is of quality and to his liking on this FREE INTERNET MESSAGE BOARD.

Quality letter, but notice he omits any sort of mention of coaches he's had here in NJ. Maybe I'm just looking for something to talk about, but it was just something I noticed when I read through it.

And I think the point of the original brand name comment was to point out how ridiculous it is to associate such a thing to the downfall of a player, be it Brodeur or Langs. Unless I'm missing the point completely...

All of the money Jamie makes of the stuff he sells goes to charity which is pretty cool.

As an old friend would say, "What a bi-polar bunch." Folks bitch Jamie sucks then complain when we don't get a high ROI. Bi-polar is an understatement. :rolleyes:

Elias has his own website and most would agree he's been our best player this year so...

I'm still hoping he signs before the draft, I would rather a 2012 2nd over 2011.

Then you want the Stars to lose in the playoffs and Dallas sign Langs after the 2011 draft. That's the only way to get the 2012 pick in this deal.

There's a lot of folks that are draft eligible. What makes 2012 any different from 2011 especially for a 2nd round pick? Is there a specific player that you see who will be eligible in 2012 that we have a solid chance of getting in the second round?

What was so difficult about this deal that Lou couldn't simply make it Langenbrunner for a 2nd round pick ('11 or '12)?

Do you really think Joe offered Lou a 2nd and lou said, no Joe we can make it a conditional draft pick depending how your team does this season.

You get what you can get.

I'm assuming the general sentiment is that next year's draft will be deeper than this year's. It's got to be far too early for any specific players to be discussed though, especially re: being available in the second round.

I'm not so sure that all the drafts in the past 10 years were considered stellar draft years but the qulity of players that went first overrall is still pretty impressive. If we end up with 1st overall we still stand a good chance of getting a solid player for our team. I think that holds true even if we get 2nd or 3rd spot.

Like I wrote somewhere else I didn't hear anything about Hall or Seguin until around March of last year. Just because there is no buzz right now doesn't mean there won't be in a few months.

Pretty sure 2003 is widely considered to be one of the strongest draft classes ever...

Agreed. That's why I said not all the recent draft classes were considered stellar, but look at who has been drafted 1st overall in the past 10-13 years and you've got some really solid number 1 picks.

Except we'd have to give up a third to get the 2nd, so it's really only moving up a number of spots. I'd kinda rather just get one pick this year and be done with it since we don't have a 2nd or 3rd yet.

There's no evidence any team offered a 2nd straight up for Jamie. Even if a few had, he'd still have to waive his no-trade to go there.

this is exactly what you want.

it's the biggest haul - this year's 3rd and next year's 2nd.

Most of these picks were Forwards...little Defenders compared to the amount of forwards drafted 1st :noclue:

I'd be happy with a RW or a C in the draft. Getting a D Man is not all we're missing.

I agree but watching Larsson play in the World Juniors kind of makes me want to draft him over Couturier,Nugent-Hopkins or Landeskog

I hear you. I was just replying to your noting of a lack of D prospects going first. We can still draft Larsson but keep in mind he probably won't see any action in the NHL for at least a couple of seasons. I think that's one of the reasons why you don't see any 1st overall DMen or very few goalies going first. Defense and goaltending takes longer to groom and most teams want to see some relatively immediate marked improvement after a first overall pick in the previous year's draft.

You gotta look at it with the idea that you won't be getting a 1st overall pick for another long while.

Defenseman and goalies are 50/50 I think a lot of teams go in with the idea that a forward at 1st pick is a safer bet.
