I'd love to see the Devils take Anthony Brodeur in a later round. Would be pretty neat considering the draft is in NJ.

No point wasting a 7th rounder on him.

Agreed, he isn't even the main goalie for SSM, getting beat out by a kid that is 7 months younger than him. Anthony just has a 3.25 GAA .900 SV% through 12 games which is a lot worse than Kania, their main starter, who has a 2.06 GAA .925 SV% through 15 games.

Why buy a lotto ticket only to rip it up. Who cares what the % is, you may miss out on the next Joe Pavelski by doing so.

I'm sure if the Devils really want to get Anthony into the organization, they'll do it after he goes undrafted twice like they've done with family of plenty of other players.

Right, and who even says he'll pursue pro hockey if he continues to struggle at that level.

I don't think we'll miss the season so I don't think how many balls each team gets etc. is a concern. And though he's not eligible in 2013, I really liked what I saw out of Josh Ho Sang for Windsor; he's 2014 eligible.

Here's a question for y'all. Would you rather have a 50 game season where the Devils miss the playoffs, but land the 15th pick, or would you rather we miss the season, but get a top 3 pick?

Top 3 pick with a missed season, no question. I will have saved about $500 not going to games to see what would be a bad team.

Stop being sensible and have relevant arguments.

I guess Rangers are taking him as revenge for us taking Matteau.

Mackinnon and Jones are head and shoulders the best two players in this draft, but then other notables to look at for the first round, in no order:

C Sean Monahan
C/RW Aleksander Barkov
RW Jonathan Drouin
D Josh Morrissey
C/LW Elias Lindholm (Swede, Lou loves his Swedes :P)
C Hunter Shinkaruk
C/RW Valeri Nichuskin (Top Russian Prospect in Draft)
G Zach Fucale
D Ryan Pulock
D Rasmus Ristolainen
D Nikita Zadorov

Just to name 10 or so, a lot of high end offensive talent in this draft.

seems a bit unfair that edmonton and all those bottom teams would have top picks again. Im sure the GMs owner is pulling for a full season lockout, then its not really their fault that they finished in the bottom again since there was not season and yet heres another top pick to join eberle, hall, RNH, yakupov... disgusting


The lotto they used the last time actually took away a ball for each time you got the #1 pick in the previous three years as well as each time you got to the playoffs in that same stretch. So really Edmonton would only have one ball.

The way the lotto would work is that each team has a certain amount of balls and they pull balls until a draft order is formed, so theoretically the Blue Jackets could get the 30th pick if they don't get one of their three balls pulled, though the chance of that happening is obviously slimmer because they have more balls. And at the same time, high-end teams like the Canucks, Devils, Kings, etc... could get the 1st pick, but in this lotto it would be a 1/52 chance of that happening.

I actually put together a Mock Lottery a couple weeks ago, this is how many balls each team would have:

Teams with 3 Balls in Lottery (5.76% Chance):
Calgary Flames, Carolina Hurricanes, Columbus Blue Jackets, Dallas Stars, Minnesota Wild, Toronto Maple Leafs, Winnipeg Jets

Teams with 2 Balls in Lottery (3.48% Chance):
Anaheim Ducks, Buffalo Sabres, Colorado Avalanche, Florida Panthers, Montreal Canadiens, New York Islanders, St. Louis Blues, Tampa Bay Lightning

Teams with 1 Ball in Lottery (1.92% Chance):
Boston Bruins, Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings, Edmonton Oilers, Los Angeles Kings, Nashville Predators, New Jersey Devils, New York Rangers, Ottawa Senators, Philadelphia Flyers, Phoenix Coyotes, Pittsburgh Penguins, San Jose Sharks, Vancouver Canucks, Washington Capitals

Total: 52 Balls
