I don't know anything about the kid, but if Subban is 1/2 the head case that his brother is, I stay away from him at all costs.

My opinion is the Devils need Subban out of this draft. They have a hell of a defensive group of prospects all they lack now is goaltending depth. I'm not sold on Wedgewood. If he ends up panning out there is nothing wrong with having two good goaltenders. Subban apparently put on a good show at the combine so he'll probably go well before 29 but if he's on the table he should be a Devil. Solidifying their end of the ice should be priority number 1. Subban is going to be the real deal.


I'll be much more comfortable if Lou/Conte decide to go with Subban, Vasilevski or Dansk. One of those three (especally Subban) + Wedge in our system would be money. If anything I'm not sold on Kinky - although he's had far from a real chance to prove himself.

But if the Devils decide to draft anything other then a RWer or goalie I'll be shocked. Out of all the prospects thus far and from what I've seen I personally really like Sissons. Seems to have the most upside out of all the forwards/RWers that will most likely be available around then (Sissons, Frk, Maidens, Fox)

Then again I'm not involved in scouting so...

About Subban

What about another interesting name: Goalie Malcolm Subban?

I had Malcolm Subban going to New Jersey at No. 29, but he's not in our top 60.
We don't like him. He's got a terrible, terrible glove hand. As athletic and acrobatic as he is, there are a lot of holes in his game. He over-commits on every play, he's terrible handling the puck behind his net and confuses his defensemen.

I think we're trading up. I have a feeling we have a target.

From what I've read, the real worry with him is his injury history (recurring groin injury) and the lack of real coaching (started playing goal at age 12).

I think that's an understandable viewpoint. To me, it seems like out of the big 3 in goal (Subban, Vasilevski, Dansk), he has the highest reward but highest risk. Like I said earlier, some more experience in goal and real coaching could propel his career. I'm interested to see which of these goalies goes first.

Not being argumentative, but how does he represent the "highest reward"? I would say Vasilevski offers that. The Russian thing is what is against him considering the history of high profile Russian goaltenders in the past.

I'm going off what I've read from various draft guides so my opinion certainly isn't fact. I could be wrong but to me from everything I've read, it seems Subban is the most athletic out of the 3 and has already made a lot of progress considering his late start. With some quality coaching, the sky is the limit. From what I've gathered, Vasilevski has had his father (former Russian pro) coaching him his whole life and is very technically sound but could have some inconsistency issues. This isn't a big deal but Subban is more used to the NA game as Vasilevski is still in Russia. I think there upside is very, very close but I just personally feel like Subban has a slight edge in upside. Vasilevski could make more sense since his upside is high and is less of a risk compared to Subban. I'd be thrilled with either (or Dansk).
