I know it's still two hours away but I figured might as well start the thread while I'm still here. I won't be around for the festivities this afternoon but I will tape it, and come here/and the front page for a summation of everything later :lol:

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

It's gonna be worth watching just to see everyone have to congratulate the Devils. :)

After the Devils make their pick, the expressions will be one or all of the following:

:unsure: :wacko: :huh:

Although Lou will have this one:

To say that i trust Lou and Conte on draft day is an understatement. Best player available is fine with me...but the two second rounders is where i expect the Devils to get a steal in the draft.

GO DEVILS!!!

Carolina traded David Tanabe and Igor Knyazev to Phoenix for Danny Markov and a conditional pick.

Interesting deal, Tanabe's a great skater but has shown little else, Knyazev is supposed to be a #4 or #5 defenseman.. and Markov is a solid defenseman who will take Glen Wesley's minutes.

Tanabe is a guy I thought would have had an impact by now. Talk about a big shot and wheels...I guess he still hasn't learned the NHL game.

Very surprising Phoenix dealt Markov, who's developing into a very good defenseman. That's one guy I bet the maple laughs would love to have back.

Tanabe is very overrated. He's got good speed but his puckhandling skills are poor and his shot never hits the net. He also wins the Tim Hunter award as the ugliest player in the NHL.

ESPN2 is joining with TSN to do the draft so for all you people in USA who don't get TSN..it looks TSN is running the draft for you guys today. I think you'll like it.

4, Four (!?!?) Time (2005-2008) NJDevs.com winner of the Whoever the damn Award for the funniest poster in the land is named after...(geesh... post pressure, but I seem ok with it!)
TWO TIME (2005, 2006) Award Winner and the man who can show Jeremy Roenick what a REAL loudmouth is all about.... hell this mouth roars SO loud, they retired the DAMN AWARD!!!! But how do you be emotional about an award for being most emotional when you're sharing it?

Fleury first over all, only the 2nd time in history for a goalie.

"Jay Pandolfo's last game at Boston University was against the Wolverines," Madden said. "My job was to cover his line. Jay had scored something like 30 goals in 30 games that season. And that was his 31st game. Guess what happened?"

"We always joke about it now," Madden said. "Jay tells me: 'You shut me down that game and you've been shutting me down ever since. The only problem is, now you're playing with me. ' "

There is NO WAY Fleury plays next year!! If Pitts plays him then that was a waste of a pick.
