nobody likes Lazar? sure hes a year younger but then you realize hes 6' 190 with room to grow, good on the cycle is in his scouting report.

his report reads like devils material. edit: according to the little ive seen, which is why i ask.

Lazar isn't a player you pick at 9th, he's a player you pick at 20th as a good pick. Devils would trade down if they really wanted him, and I could not be more against trading down from 9.

Realistically, what do you guys think the chances of one (or both?) of Lindholm and Nichushkin dropping to 9? Monahan and Shinkaruk would both be good picks (Monahan more than Shinkaruk, in my opinion), but Lindholm and Nichushkin seem to have superstar potential that I can't see Monahan or Shinkaruk having as easily.

I wonder if the Devils couldn't put together a pick & player package and get another (20s-range) first.

Seems as if most folks here want a forward, knowing Conte/Lou will pick best player "available".
I feel like others that there is a need for forward. But shouldn't be totally shocked even if they went
for Fucale (G)(although I really doubt that'll happen)
I also wonder if scouting thinks any of the lower picks could be NHL ready or not that far off.
I want to attend draft as well, but with the entire floor being taken up with all 30 teams, could make
for a boring night.

It really hadn't crossed my mind, but going on what Nill said about how deep the draft is and where the dropoffs are, comparing it to the 2003 draft...yeah, I'd like two firsts in that.

even an early 2nd would be great. Mtl has 3... maybe they'd be willing to give up one for a package, their D is pretty shaky at time

I'd think the most plausible scenario for trading down is trading our 2 rd pick+another pick or a d prospect to move up like 20 spots from 39 to somewhere around 20 and try to get Lazar there.

I'd really like to get Lazar, since he seems like our kind of pick, good two way player, all that jazz, but at the same time, we can't trade down from 9 to around 20 and give up the level of talent we could get at 9. Though I can't imagine we've had two 1st rd picks in the same draft in a long time, if ever.

When you typically draft in the bottom third of the first round you usually end up with "devils kind of players", which has worked out pretty well.

Considering who was available it wasn't the end of the world.

When compared to the drafting of other teams, Devils fans don't have all that much to complain about.

The last time they had a lottery level pick they got who was considered the best defenseman in the draft and thought of by everyone as a steal.

In 1996 they ended up with a bad player at ten in what could possibly the worst draft in NHL history,

And once upon a time they traded up to get the steal of the 2003 draft.

This whole idea about Lou and Conte having a narrow vision of Devils type players is a myth. They would not have drafted Jon Merrill if that were the case.

That's entirely your own opinion.

1,2,3 Jones/MacKinnon/Barkov

4,5,6 Drouin, Defensemen, Nichuskin

7,8,9,10 Lindholm, Monahan, Defensemen/Shinkaruk/Domi



I don't see picking BPA, we needs forwards. Our pipeline of actual potiental top 6 forwards are Boucher, Matteau, Josefson, and Tedenby.

 

As long as Shinkaruk/Lindholm/Nichuskin/Monahan is on the board I have no doubt we take one of them over a defensemen.
