I have a feeling Nichushkin will be the Zibanejad of 2013 and get drafted much earlier than expected. Although lately he has been cracking some top 10 lists.

 

I definitely do like Shinkaruk, but Wennberg gets my vote for now. The only issue is that apparently he's one of the older prospects, and his extra development may have a pretty big effect on how well he has done. I'm just hoping they draft someone who has some real talent, someone who is more than just a smart player.

As of now the Devils are slated to pick 11th. If we go something like 4-6 or 3-7 we could easily have a top 7 or 8 pick.

We could always win the lottery again, lololololololololololol. I still feel like that must have been some kind of mistake by the NHL to have let us win the lottery.

It wouldn't surprise me if it was a 'favor' from the league for making us forfeit a first rounder. "Yeah, that was harsh, we'll give you the lottery."

Kovalchuk-Loktionov-Nichuskin

 

Seriously though, if we do end up getting a high pick Nichuskin is a bit too risky.

Not sure if serious, but they showed the league drawing the final ball and announcing the winner at the office where it occurred.. Nothing like a good conspiracy theory involving the Devils tho

We're half serious. And who says that ball drawing wasn't staged?

I don't really tend to believe in the conspiracy theories, but it was AWFUL convenient that Pittsburgh won that lottery when they were in danger of moving. I remember not being shocked at all.

I mean, I don't think they had a team in mind, but at the very least they had to be relieved when it wasn't Phoenix or Atlanta that won it.

If the 05 bingo lottery was rigged, Crosby would be playing for the Rangers.    They were one of the teams that had the "best shot" of landing him, as much as you can have a best shot in a 3-2-1 ball weighted lottery.

Ah, but you see, that's exactly what they want you to think.

There's no need for the NHL to prop up the Rangers through the draft, they get the hype machine going themselves through FA every year.  Pittsburgh getting Crosby was like a monarch passing off the throne to the next king, in a market that needed it.

And what happened once they dropped the puck?   The Rangers were a disaster zone before that lockout.   Pittsburgh is a nothing market.   If they moved the team, especially then, no one would notice the difference.

April's version of Craigslist is out.

 

Top 10:
 

1. D Seth Jones (Portland - WHL)
2. LW Jonathan Drouin (Halifax - QMJHL)
3. C Nathan MacKinnon (Halifax - QMJHL)
4. C Aleksander Barkov (Tappara - FIN)
5. LW Valeri Nichushkin (Chelijabinsk 2 - RUS)
6. D Darnell Nurse (Sault Ste. Marie - OHL)
7. C Sean Monahan (Ottawa - OHL)
8. C Elias Lindholm (Brynas - SWE)
9. G Zachary Fucale (Halifax - QMJHL)
10. C/LW Max Domi (London - OHL)

Random thoughts - Interesting to see Button has C Curtis Lazar slipping from 23 to 28 in his rankings. He's still a guy I could see the Devils targeting for his strong 2 way game. Button continues to rank D Jordan Subban in the upper 2nd round. LW Emile Poirier jumps into 38th from being unranked previously. D Madison Bowey (Damon Severson's teammate) slides back to 43 from previously being at 34. He's another guy I could see being a target of the Devils on draft day. Reece Scarlett's D partner, Dillon Heathrington, enters at 65. One of my favorite prospects RW Hudson Fasching continues to stay at 75. Big, powerful winger out the USNTDP whose heading to Minnesota - I'd love if the Devils could find a way to add him to the system.

do you think nichuskin is risky because of the KHL thing, or that his skills won't develop as projected? Just curious

I believe he signed a 3 year deal with his KHL team so the soonest we would see him is 15-16.  Sort of like Tarasenko

He signed it in the summer so that may hurt his final position and he'll have two years left if not bought out
