Anyone remember what our odds of winning the lotto was two years ago when we did win it?

In all fairness im not sure what to think of Matteau... I know he'll be a good role player for the team probably... In a way he couldnt get a spot on a stacked u18 team... But got a spot as an 18 years old on an NHL team with bad depth... He's projected to be a 3rd line winger and will likely always have to live with the fact we picked him when we should have forfeit the pick so if hes not doing enough, we'll hear about how a bad decision it was... All depending on what pick we'll have to give up next season

Wasn't there also that rumor that they only kept the pick because they wanted one of the goaltenders in the first round (I believe Vasilevski/Subban)?

i don't think that's true info like that would have never leaked from Lou or the organization.

 

i also hope to god its not true cause then it would mean that the organization doesnt firmly believe in Kinkaid /Wedgewood... which we may have had a liiiittle indication when Deboer simply refused to give Kinkaid a shot even though the whole world thought he should have got at least one start. He's the same age as Markstrom and Florida is willing and confident in him giving him quite a few starts when some vet we're down and even when they we're healthy

Yeah, you know Matteau is pretty insignificant, since he's a 29th overall..... :doh1:


He's no worse than Corrente or half dozen other first round picks we've selected. It's early but, again, he's no Corrente

I'd say it's way too early to tell one way or the other about him, but he surely didn't show anything during his brief stint here that screams "first line forward". He probably projects to a 2nd-3rd line power forward type, similar to Zubrus.

It's a pick I wouldn't have been upset forfeiting.

He's also only 18, so it's early to be making any final decisions. The team will need a zubrus type in the future.

That being said, I'd rather have forfeited last year than this or next year.

Unless NJ goes on a tear and Phoenix totally chokes, we're gonna have a top ten pick. Hopefully Buffalo and Philly overtake us

With the remaining schedule we have, it's certainly not out of the question that Buffalo and Philly could overtake us.  We're probably going to end up with the 8-10 range.  I don't see Calgary dropping below us.

judging from the oilers' ridiculous luck, they will probably win the lottery, and we will get the second overall pick from our ridiculous luck at the larsson pick.

I'm not one to encourage tanking, but I hope the Devils play some prospects at this point to hopefully move up in the draft and give some kids experience.  Win-win.

Im with you here. It sounds like its going to happen too. TG tweeted that they're having the end of season meetings with Albany staff today and intimated some of the young guys will be brought to NJ. 

 

I think we're going to go 1-2 over these last 3, maybe 2-1 depending on how hard Pittsburgh wants the 2nd to last game of the season. The Rags game could be insane if they need it to get in. That would be some sweet revenge.

That's literally impossible.  The lottery only determines one pick.  The only way they get one and we get two is if they finish last/win the lottery, we finish second to last which is basically impossible.

the only kids that would possibly play would be urbom and gelinas. anyone else playing from albany would be a gift and nothing towards the future. none of the forwards there are guys really looked to for contribution. perhaps tedenby gets a game as a consolation for having his face torn in half.

 

(obviously i'd love for merrill, severson and boucher to get a game but that is not possible).
