You can follow Quenneville on Twitter @jaquinder88. He tweeted earlier that his grandfather passed. At least he got to see him get drafted.

After digesting the draft, I'm disappointed in our draft choices after Quenville.  What happened to BPA? And most all the choices were a "specific (pigion holed"). They new these (prospects) abilities and targeted them specifically for that. Connor Chatham might sniff 4th line duties. Maybe Jacobs has a shot at making the nhl. I so hope I'm dead wrong about this. It seems instead of a goal scorer,  they were looking for a Dwight King type. Hopefully they got him. The Devils drafted for "grit' for the most part. I love my devils, but I no longer have faith in scouting staff.

 

Let's go Devils!

I thought there was a thread for prospects camp by Fiesty.   Anyway, not sure who else is coming besides the 3 mentioned earlier.

Lou claimed that Jacobs was really high on their draft board, enough so that they felt they couldn't pass him up based on what they thought of the next forward available. Some draft guru types gave Jacobs a first round rating, and really liked the pick.

A lil off topic but, anyone else think the draft pic (HF),  C. Bleakley looks like Jonah Hill and has double chin at 18 yrs. old?

Seems like much of the disappointment with the Devils draft last month, both here and on other Devils forums, has dissipated after the free agent moves and re-signings. Some of the anti management, anti coach sentiment after last season has subsided quite a lot in just over a months time.

"Look Hollom, its leadership they want. Strength. Now you find that within yourself and you will earn their respect. With that respect, true discipline goes by the board." -Captain Jack Aubrey

"Right, lads. Now I know there's not a faint heart among you. I know you're as anxious as I am to get into close action. But we must bring 'em right up beside us before we spring this trap. That will test our nerve. And discipline will count just as much as courage. The Acheron is a tough nut to crack. More then twice our guns. More then twice our numbers. And they will sell their lives dearly." -Capt. Jack Aubrey

All things considered, I think Lou had a very good offseason. Signing Schneider and Greene and getting Cammalleri helps a lot

If he sits Larsson for Harrold before game 10 my head will explode. After that, so long as he does something to deserve being scratched, I'll be ok.

Wasn't aware extraskater.com had a CHL page...found some interesting stuff on John Quenneville

 

For draft eligible CHL players, Quenneville was:

 

25th in goals

25th in points

Points/60- 26th

Brandon scored 51% of the goals when Quenneville was on the ice, which translated to +2.5 in relative GF%

Quenneville only played 27.8% of Brandon's PP so if he gets around 50%, he should really breakout next year

 

Feel a little better after looking into this stuff
