"A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

This should be interesting. The 1st round should be active in general trade wise. I wouldn't be surprised too see Lou trade up or make package someone up with the 29th overall for someone.

On HFBoards, there's talk about TB wanting to trade out of the 19th pick, and that, supposedly, Yzerman had a lot of interest in signing Andy Greene last summer. I don't see it happening, except maybe if Grigorenko takes a nosedive. I don't expect him to fall all the way to 19 though.

The other interesting thing about Grigorenko was Custance, on NHL Network last night, saying that the issues about his work ethic are overblown, if not completely untrue. He made a convincing case, at least so far as I was concerned.

Pretty nervous/excited. Can't see anything too good coming out of the draft tonight though. Just don't pick a goalie and I will be satisfied.

edit - Gut feeling that we trade out and stockpile multiple picks for rounds two and three.

If we got Grigs, that would be a Larsson level steal

Sounds like first trade of the day about to happen...

Bobrovsky to Columbus for picks. (per Dreger)

Good move by columbus if the draft picks are not crazy. Bob has potential.

How high do you think the Devils go if they trade up? 20? 15? 10?

Good trade for both parties in my opinion.

Jury is still kinda out on Bobrovsky as he's only started 77 games in his NHL career, but he really wasn't any good this year and had a poor finish to the season in 10-11 as well as a poor playoff. I'd keep the picks. Philly wins this trade

Disagree. The highest pick in the cache Philly got was #45 and it remains to be seen what Philly does with these picks. Draft picks are all crapshoots. Bobrovsky has NHL experience and is widely expected to get better. If anything, the jury is still out on both of these trades. In the immediate, the trade addresses a Columbus need and Bobrovsky could turn out to be very good. I say its a good trade for both sides at the least. Philly gets some depth pick wise and Columbus gets a young tender with experience that has an upside.

Depends how how they want to go/who they're targeting. They could go as high as they wanted if they decide to make some deals.

I think the highest they'd go is the low teens, but thats a stretch. More realistically is 5-10.

Wouldn't be surprised if Lou moved up if they see a player they like, like they did with Josefson in 2009. I have confidence in our scouting system.
Looking at the Larsson draft video, good memories.
Looking forward at Larssons season next year.
