Seems like a stereotypical Devils pick.   Hilariously so.

the blurb they put next to him when we picked him said 
"best zero-goal-scoring skater" ... yeah that`s exactly what we need :doh1: .

Santini: "I used to be a Rangers fan. I just changed 10 minutes ago."

I played against him as a kid. He grew up a Rags fan. His parents owned the local ice rink I think.

Well we should have a lot of extra tradable assets on defense I guess.

Someone has to get Lou on one of those hoarding shows.

Santini said he always admired Scott Stevens when he was growing up. Said he's looking forward to working with him as assistant coach.

Sometimes I wonder if Lou just hears about guys who were Rangers fans growing up and then drafts them to forcefully convert them. Building the fanbase one draft pick at a time.

not thrilled about this pick at all. Not because of the player but because this kind of player can be found cheap, with nhl experience or wtv. Plus were stacked in d prospects.

 

take a chance drafting guys who can put the puck in the net at least. But then maybe Lou has something up his sleeve with some of our d prospects

hahaha, well done.

 

As for the pick not a fan in general, but we'll see.  I can see a player like this being drafted in the 3rd round, but the 2nd, little early to take guys with no puck skills.

Well, didn't really know anything about him, but I'm kind of optimistic since people had him ranked around that number despite him not scoring goals. If you get this high solely on defense, you gotta be damn good at it. ...I hope so

Pronman had him ranked 28th, so I'm a little higher on the pick - Pronman knows that drafting defense and goalies high is dicier than drafting forwards.

On TSN's list he fell exactly into his slot.    I don't know sh!t about 95% of these guys, but from reading on him he's right in their wheelhouse.   At least he CAN skate and they say he has a shot.   There's so many defensemen to climb over, though.   They're going to need to start trading a few.

Played my whole life with his cousin in Morris County, NJ...knew the family for a long time, good family, supposedly a good kid.  Family owns the rink up in Brewster, NY and owns Apple Core Juniors in the EJHL.  His cousin was a stud too but couldn't get his $hit together off the ice (use your imagination).  I think it's a good pickup from a high level of simply knowing the family.
