NJAY. I am used to it. Gord Miller and Pierre Mcquire have complemented the Devils all year. TSN always does. Too bad you guys are stuck with ESPN.

We get TSN today thank god.

"Jay Pandolfo's last game at Boston University was against the Wolverines," Madden said. "My job was to cover his line. Jay had scored something like 30 goals in 30 games that season. And that was his 31st game. Guess what happened?"

"We always joke about it now," Madden said. "Jay tells me: 'You shut me down that game and you've been shutting me down ever since. The only problem is, now you're playing with me. ' "

And the Devils pick!!!.......Zach Parise

10. Zach Parise

Born: July 28, 1984, Faribault, Minn.
2002-03: University of North Dakota
Pos: C | Ht: 5-11 | Wt: 186 | Shoots: L
Central Scouting: No. 9 North American skater

The Parise name conjures up memories of a hard-nosed forward. Zach's dad, J.P. Parise, lasted 13 NHL seasons mainly because of his competitiveness.

Zach is more talented than the old man. He's creative with the puck and has a soft touch around the net. He enters the draft as the top offensive threat coming out of college. He put up a lot of points as a freshman, averaging almost 1.5 per game.

A superb playmaker who had 101 assists in his final high school season, the most obvious trait inherited from his father is determination.

Said one college scout: "He is a star. He can do it all. He can skate. He is strong, and I do not know what his knock is. He can do just about anything. He is a fantastic player. To me, he is magical. I think he is one of the best college players to come down the pipeline in years."

The knock is his size. Parise does not have a thick body yet, and time will tell whether he gets bigger and faster.

"I don't see size as an issue," said a scout. "His dad wasn't big. Zach's a competitor like his dad."

You can never hope to predict Conte/Lou only hope he doesn't get your soul in the progress.

Did you see the sh!t-eating grin on Lou's face? He couldn't believe they got him! Sounds like they found a real winner!!

Well they do have a point with size not being an issue with guys like Madden, Brylin and Gionta. I was hoping for a brute but his rank was very good and if he can skate and score, that's all that matters.


He looks like Prince William.... :blink:


Lots of praise for Conte, the man is a genius!

Sounds like more character for the Devils, gotta love hard workers, and a hard worker with skill, even better.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Like i said he isnt that small , and is still 18. Listed at 5'11" he potentiall could end up at around 6' 195 or so and that isnt undersized by anymeans. Especially with how competative he is.
