Updated After Monday's Games
1. Florida - 32 Pts 3 GR 10 ROW (25.0%)
2. Colorado - 37 Pts 3 GR 14 ROW (18.8%)
3. Tampa Bay - 38 Pts 3 GR 16 ROW (14.2%)
4. Nashville - 39 Pts 3 GR 13 ROW (10.7%)
5. Carolina - 39 Pts 3 GR 18 ROW (8.1%)
6. Edmonton - 41 Pts 3 GR 15 ROW (6.2%)
7. Calgary - 42 Pts 3 GR 19 ROW (4.7%)
8. Philadelphia - 43 Pts 3 GR 19 ROW (3.6%)
9. Buffalo - 44 Pts 2 GR 13 ROW (2.7%)
10. New Jersey - 44 Pts 3 GR 15 ROW (2.1%)
11. Phoenix - 46 Pts 3 GR 15 ROW (1.5%)
12. Dallas - 48 Pts 3 GR 20 ROW (1.1%)
13. Detroit - 50 Pts 3 GR 19 ROW (0.8%)
14. Winnipeg - 51 Pts 2 GR 22 ROW (0.5%)

 

Tuesday's Games of Interest

New Jersey vs. Montreal
Carolina vs. Islanders
Buffalo vs. Pittsburgh
Philadelphia vs. Boston
Calgary vs. Nashville
Dallas vs. San Jose

The Devils can't finish higher than 3rd which is why the Florida and Colorado games aren't included.

 

EDIT: Devils can't pass Winnipeg. I'm going to bold the teams they can't pass one way or the other.

 

EDIT 2: Can't pass Detroit as pointed out by SMantzas.

Cant pass Detroit either as we'd have less ROW regardless

in a perfect scenario (if you strictly look at it for a better draft pick) is if we lose all our remaining games

 

Buffalo, Philly and Calgary would just have to win one game to jump over us. Edmonton and Carolina would have to win 2 and Nashville and Tampa would have to win 3... They'd all win the tiebreaker against us too i think? 

 

If we win one game... Buffalo, Phily and Calgary would have to win 2 of course. Carolina couldnt jump over us even if they win all their remaining games. Edmonton would have to win all their remaining games.

 

so if w lose all our games the lower we can possibly pick is 3rd... if we win one then we'd be picking 6th at best.

Perfect scenario so far... Philly won boston, buffalo won pittsburgh, carolina won islanders, florida won NYR... The only bummer is that nashville is winning calgary but since we won they wont be able to jump over us i think anyway

Why did we win today? We would have been in a MUCH better situation drafting wise if we lost today. We would already at this time have the 8th pick, with it being possibly 7th if Calgary wins.

You think the players or coaches are thinking about a draft pick?  Besides, the best they're getting to at this point is 6, the worst is 12.  That's not exactly a huge difference.

It's a way bigger difference than the one between 29 and a theoretical 20 or so that everyone's complaining about.

Being 6 is right around Barkov/Drouin/Nurse territory. 12 would require someone to be in freefall for that quality to happen (though it happened 2x last year w/ Grigorenko and Forsberg

Well 6-12 is just the theoretical high and low end.  Realistically it's more like an 8-11 range.

Because we are not the 1983 Pittsburgh Penguins.

13. Detroit - 50 Pts 3 GR 19 ROW (0.8%)
14. Winnipeg - 51 Pts 1 GR 22 ROW (0.5%)

 

Keep in mind this version of the standings is going by nhl.com and they take in account games remaining. Bolded are teams the Devils can't pass one way or the other.

 

Wednesday's Games of Interest
Edmonton vs. Chicago
Phoenix vs. San Jose

Tampa Bay and Detroit both have games that will affect the lottery but not the Devils position in it.

I'm perfectly fine with the 8-11 range, I feel like it's almost a guarantee that one of Monahan and Shinkaruk will still be there at those picks, and I would love to see one of them in a Devils jersey come September.

I'm not sure if I'd perfer Shinkaruk or Monahan, but who cares! Both guys are easy top 5 picks any other year. Since the Sabres are loaded up front prospect wise I wouldn't be surprised if they took someone like Pulock

All I know is i'm banking on at least 3 defensemen to be picked before 10th, which could very likely turn into 4 or 5, so i'm confident we'll get one of Shinkaruk or Monahan which for me is very exciting.

If you're right about that, Nashville will have hit the mother lode this year getting Barkov and Forsberg.
