I seriously hope that changes come trade deadline. A seriously strong top 2 rounds in this years draft....another 2nd could go a long way.


or it could, like most 2nd round draft picks, amount to absolutely nothing. colin white is definitely more valuable to the devils than a 2nd round pick. i mean, this notion is HFery at its worst - 'all prospects will pan out, veterans suck, i hope we get a draft pick for this sucky veteran, who will turn into a prospect, who will pan out'

The more 20% chances you have, the more often you have something in the minors worthwhile.

except there's a high chance that colin white's one remaining season will be more valuable than that 2nd round pick will be in his entire career.

I'm bored so my ideal scenerio. David Clarkson is traded to some team for a 3rd.

Zach Parise - Travis Zajac - Dainius Zubrus
Ilya Kovalchuk - Jacob Josefson - Nick Palmieri
Brian Rolston - Patrik Elias - Mattias Tedenby
Vladmir Zharkov - David Steckel - Eric Boulton
Cam Janssen

Henrik Tallinder - Mark Fayne
Colin White - Adam Larsson
Andy Greene - Anton Volchenkov
Matt Taormina

Martin Brodeur
Johan Hedberg

PP1

Ilya Kovalchuk - Travis Zajac - Zach Parise
Mark Fayne - Brian Rolston

PP2

Dainius Zubrus - Jacob Josefson - Mattias Tedenby
Adam Larsson - Patrik Elias

PK1

Zach Parise - Travis Zajac
Anton Volchenkov - Colin White

PK2
Patrik Elias - Brian Rolston/Vladmir Zharkov
Henrik Tallinder - Angy Greene

Haven't decided what PP I would like run. If Taormina were to make the team he would be the ideal center piece in the 1 - 3 - 1 PP. Larsson just can't be counted on to run that PP from the point, it is a little too much to ask of him. If he could:

-------Zubrus-------
--------------------
Kov-----Tao----Parise
---------------------
-------Larsson---------

Probably a little risky

Glad to see someone say this. Very true, odds of picking an NHLer in the 2nd round are not good. Odds are between 66-75% that the draft pick will never become a meaningful player depending on if it is a high or low 2nd. I'd rather make a Stanley Cup run with Colin White than give him away for a 30% chance at a meaningful player years from now.

don't want larsson on a power play. i don't think young players in general are particularly adept at it.

I agree with you on the first unit, but I would say its fairly safe he will see 2nd unit PP time. Larsson is said to have a high hockey IQ and is a great passer. Adding a defensemen with a high passing % will no doubt correlate with a higher shooting % on the PP. Maybe I'm off though.

Zajac with Parise isn't rocket science. I think Tedenby along side Kovy could be good as well. Now I don't know the positions from head so will give it a go.
Parise-Zajac-Zub
Kovy-Elias-Tedenby(If so)
clarkson-Josefson-palmeri
Boulton-Steckle-Hunter

Tallinder-Fayne
Greene-TAO/Larrson

Just out of curiosity, what makes you say that Fayne will get the slot over Larsson?
