From Lou's quotes to TG, sounds like he's inclined to go with a forward unless there's a clear separation between their ranking of the defenseman and the next forward. 

Which is wha he should do. Unless there is a anothe Merrill talented defensive prospect the forwards are bare and need restocking badly.

I'll actually be there tonight and tomorrow, pretty psyched.  Hoping I run into some Devils staff/players.

I live in philly and thought about going tonight. I just always feel a draft on TV is so much more informative. I want to get to a draft sometime in my life though

One of these years, Lou will put a giant black curtain around it and communicate with GM's solely through notes being secretly passed to other tables.

Hah. I'm sure Bettman would nix that. Lou was caught at the Wild table a few yrs back when Burns got dealt and he and Gillis were caught together last year.

Although I think we will be quiet the next two days.

Hopefully Colin and whoever else is there can keep an eye out.

You figure the Flyers will end up overpaying. Desperate to make a splash at home.

They need to clear some salary as well. Already over the cap but that's counting Pronger on that number as well.

With Berube's system, you can see why their focus would be getting Ekblad. Their defensive game has improved, seems like they want to play more carefully like the Devils. Beating the Penguins in a first or second round with physicality and offense shouldn't be their ceiling.

 

Hope they overpay too much, Hextall's first move was pretty bad.
