i dont think he has Kessel's shot though, Kessel has a Sakic'ish way of shooting while still skating (not gliding and shooting). Not a lot of players does it

Yeah his shot isn't quite as good as Phil's but he does like to unload it on the rush in a similar manner.


One knock against Shinkaruk was that he'd have to refine his skating style since it was awkward. In one of the guides I have, it says it shouldn't be a problem because its similar to Crosby's (I'm at work right now so I don't have the exact quote in front of me of me). Anyway, his defense leaves a bit to be desired but he has undeniable offensive skill, heart and leadership qualities. Rather have him than Domi, who played soft minutes. Though, I'm not sure the QOC Shinkaruk faced

Did anyone see World War Z? There's a scene where they're in Newark and everything is chaos and on fire. I turned to my Dad at that point and asked, "Isn't that what Newark normally looks like?"

yeah i guess is heart and determination is similar to Domi but i'd give the offensive edge to Shinkaruk and the defensive play and toughness to Domi

Forgot the guide was sent as a PDF too:

STRENGTHS: Shinkaruk is a plucky scoring winger with good skating technique and high energy levels. He really uses the inside and outside of his edges, almost like a figure skater. If you watch guys like Jeff Skinner, Sidney Crosby or Henrik Zetterberg skate into the offensive zone, they do a similar motion, turning their lower body to gain body position on the defender.

Edit- Apparently Nurse is a Devils fan. Said Stevens was his favorite player growing up

Although Devils' preference for No. 9 pick is still a skill forward, Lou Lamoriello admitted some of the big D available are "tempting."

 

brrrr i know im gonna like any guy that we pick but i gotta admit that if we pick a dman im gonna be a liiiittle disappointed

 

interesting note by McKenzie:

 

Best pure goal-scorer: Anthony Mantha with the win over Drouin, MacKinnon, Shinkaruk. Mantha scored 50 this season.

 

Toughest prospect: Sam Morin with slight lead over J-I Diaby and Ryan Hartman.

 

Best agitator: Plymouth's Ryan Hartman with clear win but guy he fought in Prospects Game Kerby Rychel got a couple of votes.

 

Biggest/hardest hitter: London Knight defenceman Nikita Zadorov.

 

Jonathan Drouin was runaway leader in 3 categories: best puckhandler, best playmaker, best hockey sense. And it wasn't close in any of them.

 

Fastest skater: Nathan MacKinnon.

 

Prospect with the best shot: Brandon dman Ryan Pulock. Seth Jones got a couple of votes too.

 

Prospect most ready to step into NHL and play now: Nathan MacKinnon tops, Seth Jones runner up.

 

i can agree with what he's saying about Mackinnon and Drouin... god are they ever crazy. Mackinnon'speed and execution at top speed is unreal

I wouldn't be surprised if at one point in time Lou asked himself, "I wonder if I could have a roster of only defenseman?"

TG retweeted pics of what championship plaza looks like now.  Looks like a row of tents along by Dino BBQ wall with piles of sand.  There is also one of those watergun midway games by the back wall closer to EAH.

Aaron Vickers (Future Considerations) Mock Draft

 

9th: New Jersey Devils – Elias Lindholm – The all-round player can play both ends of the ice but is particularly controlling in the offensive zone. - See more at: http://futureconside...h.x8K2hCb5.dpuf

 

Corey Pronman (Hockey Prospectus) Mock Draft

 

9. New Jersey Devils, C Max Domi, London Knights (OHL)

It is very uncommon for a team to notably incorporate organizational need at this high point in the draft. That being said, the Devils have high-end quality in their prospect pool at defense to couple with former lottery pick Adam Larsson, while they are starving for some skill in their pipeline. The top forwards here are also arguably the best players available. The pick could be Shinkaruk, Max Domi, or Swedish forward Alex Wennberg. I have also heard there is an outside shot of Curtis Lazar going at this selection.

 

I'd prefer Shinkaruk or even Horvat to Domi if the top forward prospects are off the board.

I know, people afraid of downtown at night. I mean, I wouldn't go wandering up Clinton Ave, but I feel pretty damn safe downtown, even late at night.

Rule of thumb about bad areas. If the homies ain't yelling "eyyyy yoooerp" or yelling about how they "got dat diesel" while trying to flag you down, you're fine. If they are, would you like some drugs then? lol.

Where do you guys think Spencer Martin and Erik Comrie will land and could we target one of them if Fucale goes in the first round?

I'm in the same boat as Snartly, although I did enter a new raffle they were having (haven't heard anything yet). If anyone has a couple extras, PM me.

I'm adding in Jarry since I'm a fan of his. Jarry will probably be a 2nd round guy, Martin a 3rd/4th round guy, and Comrie a 3rd round guy based off their rankings.

 

Spencer Martin
- 6th amongst Goalies by Future Considerations
- 89th Overall Future Considerations
- 6th amongst Goalies by Hockey Prospect
- 73rd Overall Hockey Prospect
- 5th amongst N.A. Goalies by Central Scouting Services

Eric Comrie
- 4th amongst Goalies by Future Considerations
- 63rd Overall Future Considerations
- 4th amongst Goalies by Hockey Prospect
- 67th Overall Hockey Prospect
- 2nd amongst N.A. Goalies by Central Scouting Services

Tristan Jarry
- 2nd amongst Goalies by Future Considerations
- 58th Overall Future Considerations
- 2nd amongst Goalies by Hockey Prospect
- 57th Overall Hockey Prospect
- 3rd amongst N.A. Goalies by Central Scouting Services

I'm a fan of Jarry but the only way the Devils would be able to get him would be at 39 and I would rather not use the 2nd round pick on a G in a deep draft like this. Infact, I'd rather not draft a G at all this year since the draft is deep, the Devils only have 4 picks (as of now), and they have Wedgewood and Kinkaid in the system.

What do you guys think of Wennberg? Another Swede, I know, but I get the feeling that he's underrated because of this strong draft class. He's mostly being predicted to go closer to 15 than 9, but he could be a good fit for this team. I wouldn't be opposed to them trading down (if Nichuskin, Lindholm, and Monahan are off the table) if they're targeting a player like Wennberg.

I wouldn't be opposed to them trading down (if Nichuskin, Lindholm, and Monahan are off the table) if they're targeting a player like Wennberg.

I've seen him listed at a few different heights and weights so I'll go with TSN's 6'1, 174 lbs. Seems to be ranked consistently just out of the top 10 by Future Considerations (13th), Hockey Prospect (12th), TSN (12th), Craig Button (12th), ISS (15th), McKeen's (13th). First thing that stands out to me is that he needs to add some muscle to that frame and would probably be best served spending next year in Sweden as he continues to grow.

From what I've read on him he seems to be an excellent skater who is strong on his skates and agile along the boards which helps him control the puck. Seems like he has excellent hockey sense and is always in the right position in all zones. Seems like he is more developed defensively than offensively at this point. From the Hockey Prospect guide I get the impression he is a mature kid on and off the ice.

His shot is considered a bit of a work in progress and his offensive game seems raw. I think he'd be the type of prospect best suited to not rush into the NHL and give him a few years to develop. I won't be upset if the move back and grab him but there are some other prospects I like a bit more than him.

I'm sure it will be in the beginning of the draft with all the players, families, and most fans will really care more about the 1st round than anything else. I'm sure as round by round progresses and it gets late in the day for a Sunday it will empty out. I'm very fortunate to be going now.

If we traded back for a late first rounder I would take Fucale. Would be amazing if he's there in the second round, or Petan.
