I'm waiting till I get Hockey Prospect's Black Book (by far the best draft publication imo) and Future Consideration's Draft Guide before I form any final opinions on the prospects. At this moment I think they'll have a shot at getting a solid forward like Monahan, Lindholm, or Shinkaruk - with my bet on Shinkaruk being the one available. I'm not interested in them taking a defenseman because of the depth they already have there. I'm a huge Lazar fan but would only take him if it meant trading back in the 1st round and also acquiring a high 2nd in the process. Nichushkin is intriguing but I'm remaining neutral on him until I read mutliple game reports on him from the scouts at HP and FC. That will make or break my opinion on him.

I'd rather spend the 6th rounder on a real prospect. He's not going to get drafted this year or next year as an overager. Hopefully for him he can end up playing at a D1 school and then maybe the Devils keep up with the whole signing family to minor league deals - but I'd imagine he would be an ECHL'er at best.

 

Out of all of Brodeur's kids, Jeremy seems like the only one who will have a real shot. I'd love to see him play in the OHL.

I'm hoping Conte goes for someone that is a sharpshooter, and opposed to just a good two way player. I don't want to have a team of Travis Zajac's. Someone a lil more "Kessel" like. Wouldn't hurt if he was a lil arrogant too. Not sure of top ten prospects who fits that description.
I'd like to see a Jeff Skinner type. (speed-goods hand around the net.)However, if If Darnell Nurse is still around, he'd be great pick up too.

Not unless Marty's son can legitimately play in the NHL one day, which by all accounts that I've heard he can't. So... No.

i wonder if we should take a chance with Jordan Subban in the 2nd round, but with mtl picking 4th and 6th in the 2nd and then their own 2nd pick wherever they end up i can't see them not taking a chance and picking him

He was real good during the Super Series earlier in the year and his shots/game numbers are pretty impressive given his KHL ice time (the KHL, unlike silly leagues like the OHL and WHL, actually publish shot data).

Really a question for anyone . . . how many spots down do you think the Devils could move in exchange for  a first round pick next year?  If Lou/Conte see a player they really want who will make it to 18 or lower, it might be a possibility.

If you want a good sharpshooter, look at the videos of Monahan and Nichushkin. Those two can snipe from the top of the circles and hit the corners from all angles. Shinkaruk's highlights are mostly of goals tipped, tapped, and maneuvered. He's got a couple of sniper goals, but most of his goals seem to come from within 10 feet.

True story: I actually pulled out this autographed Hunter Shinkaruk jersey card. I had no clue we would be in the running for drafting him. I ended up flipping it for $100 but if I knew what I knew now I might have held onto it...

Shinkrauk sounds like a Parise type of player

TSN's draft preview thing said Shinkaruk has a really nice shot, so let's not pigeonhole him as an elite garbageman just because of some Youtube highlights.

 

http://lastwordonspo...yer-profile-11/

 

Shinkaruk has  a tremendous wrist shot and excellent release, particularly when coming in on a rush off the left wing.  His shot is very accurate, and heavy, and the release fools goalies leading to the puck being behind them before they know what happened.  He also has a knack for finding the open areas of the ice and taking an excellent one-timer.

 

Not that any website is right or wrong on things, but there are at least a few people touting that Shinkaruk can really shoot well.

 

This is the video of Craig Button's take:

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.

No but if he develop into a top player for us how much you think he's gonna get then? thats the reality now if you want top players. is that NJ's plan to try to get the best out of a player until he reach his prime and UFA status and then let him go? haha
