NHL.com has two mock drafts (one eastern scout, one western scout) based on current standings. Here's who the eastern scout has us picking:

22 NEW JERSEY DEVILS
Stefan Matteau, C, USA U-18 (USHL)
SKINNY: High-energy power winger plays with a nasty edge; no fun to play against, and he can score.


...Yes, it's his son.

Meanwhile, the western scout says:

22 NEW JERSEY DEVILS
Martin Frk, C, Halifax (QMJHL)
SKINNY: Seems like he has been around forever; has good overall skills, hard to not like him here.

Lmfao. If we draft Stephane Matteau's son, that would pretty much be irony personified.

Martin Frk? With the scratch Lou would likely pay him, it'd take a good long while before he could finally afford to buy a vowel. Poor kid.

I think I mentioned Stefan Matteau on a previous thread a month or 2 ago.

I wish we would take him just to have him score on the Rags in overtime in the playoffs. The arena would collapse under the weight of the huge amount of irony.

Why did we trade it away or something?

If it is the Kovy penalty, then we don't know for sure since Lou hasn't submitted it as far as I know.

He doesn't have to submit it until after the season and can do so anytime up until 2014. Hopefully though, we end up having the last pick in the first round. Still, I would exercise the option if we draft anywhere beyond 20. Nathan McKinnon, who's supposed to be a beast, is draft eligible next year. Would hate to potentially miss out on that if we're awful next year.

The Devils were given a four year window (2011-2014).

Unless the Devils win the Cup, it makes not much sense for Lou to forfeit the draft pick this season, especially from his perspective.

Can Lou decide to forfeit his pick AT the draft? Is there any sort of deadline that he needs to decide by before the draft?

I think he has to decide before the draft but after the end of the post-season.

After the Stanley Cup final. I can't find anything more specific, but I could swear I remember reading that it was within 48 hours of the conclusion of the SCF. So realistically, they've got up until two-ish weeks before the draft.

True and I have heard that this draft year is pretty weak outside the top 4 or so picks. If that is true even if we possibly get a little above 20 I wouldn't mind Lou forfeiting this year's pick.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
