I wouldn't mind a trade down with Columbus if they were interested.  Our 2nd + our 1st for 2 of their 1sts + a 3rd, something like that.  

 

I don't think trading down or trading up are sure things to be bad and good respectively - yeah, trading down hasn't always worked out for NJ, but that's usually because they are taking guys who are a bit unusual.

 

Not to mention that the first round trade downs that they have done are usually for something like a third round pick, or going up a few spots in the second round.  The bust rate for first round picks is high enough.  When you get into even the second round, just getting a player that can be an every day NHL player is seen as a win.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?

Is there a spot where you can get a brief synopsis of most of the kids in the upcoming draft?

while their picks might not be so great, they have decent info on each guy and videos when applicable.

I'm not usually a big NHL draft guy but the fact this year is in Newark it may be an interesting experience.

 

I know ticket prices and details haven't been announced yet.  Has anyone been to another NHL draft?  How much do tickets usually run?  Are all the concessions open?  What's the atmosphere like?

i wish i could see Monahan play... he seems like one of those guys that you have to see play to really judge and not by simply looking at highlights... he's not flashy and from all the highlights i saw i was really not impress by his offence... all his goals were random screened shots who got in or tap in goal in the crease or kind of johnny on the spot kinda goal. Of course its a skill to know where to go and everything but anyway... 

 

but you cant deny the good things he's doing when you look at his numbers and the team hes playing on so he's definitely doing something right and he's big

How do you get them from the team? Just walk up that day or do you have to be STH?

STH have priority, and any other tickets still not used are open to the public. At least that is how others have gone

the draft is 100% run by the NHL, NOT the Devils. STH are going to be given two tickets per account (not per seat). They expect concessions to be open on the concourses but not the lounge.

 

they have no idea where the seats that sth will be or even if they'll be assigned - they know that there will be areas specifically assigned to the NHL which means the picks and their families.

The Devils draft picks by round and overall: 1 (9), 2 (39), 4 (100), 6 (160)

 

TSN's Top 10

 

1. D Seth Jones
2. C Nate MacKinnon
3. LW Jonathan Drouin
4. C Aleksander Barkov
5. LW Valeri Nichushkin
6. C Elias Lindholm
7. C Sean Monahan
8. D Rasmus Ristolainen
9. D Nikita Zadorov
T-10. C/RW Hunter Shinkaruk
T-10. D Darnell Nurse
HM: C/LW Max Domi

 

Interesting to see they have Nurse behind Ristolainen and Zadorov. I'm happy with the Devils being at 9. I think Shinkaruk is most likely to be there but who knows if Lindholm or Monahan fall.

It's not unusual to see one or two guys fall, so it won't shock me if the Devils get a shot at Nichushkin, Lindholm, or Monahan....of course, the Devils could get a shot and let those guys keep on falling. :lol:

 

It's probably been posted recently, but to put it next to the TSN top 10, this is where to find the ISS top 30, for anyone that wants to see it:  http://www.isshockey.com/iss-top-30/

 

1 Jones, Seth RD 10/3/1994 R 6.03.5 208 Portland WHL
2 Nichushkin, Valery F 3/4/1995 L 6.04 202 Chelyabinsk Traktor KHL
3 MacKinnon, Nathan C 9/1/1995 R 6.00 182 Halifax QMJHL
4 Drouin, Jonathan C 3/27/1995 L 5.10.75 185 Halifax QMJHL
5 Barkov, Sasha F 9/2/1995 L 6.03 209 Tappara FinE
6 Nurse, Darnell LD 2/4/1995 L 6.03.5 189 S.S. Marie OHL
7 Zadorov, Nikita LD 4/15/1995 L 6.05.25 230 London OHL
8 Lindholm, Elias C 12/2/1994 R 6.00 192 Brynas SweE
9 Monahan, Sean C 10/12/1994 L 6.02 186 Ottawa OHL

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Keep saying it but Nichushkin would be perfect for NJ - don't need the help right away, let him mature, get some stopgaps, maybe he's ready in 2015 and comes over and scores 20 goals.

For the sake of fun speculating, I wonder if Edmonton trades one of RNH or Eberle for a pick in the 5 to 10 range.

they're not gonna trade them for someone in one of those slots. They want guys that can help now, that'd just set them back more since those guys probably aren't ready to come up unless someone Couturier-esque falls. They'll just fall farther behind losing two 60 point scorers

 

I'd imagine they'd only trade one of them in a package for someone like Shea Weber

I'm very confused...Why in a million years would they do this? They have the 7th pick anyway.
