I think noon today (6/30) is the last opportunity to place a player on waivers for the purpose of a buyout. Doesn't seem like the Devils will do it, but maybe we'll be surprised. Kind of hoping Zubrus wouldn't be back.

I like your game plan! I agree that St. Louis for one year would be great. I feel like the presence of a veteran who has had a lot of success will be helpful for mentoring purposes, especially now that Shero is committed to making this team younger. I also agree about Ruutu - that line with JJ and Palmieri would be a good one, but I wonder whether Palmieri will play in the top 6.

 

The fourth line will be quite a problem. Shero really needs to buy Zubrus out. I'm hoping Kalinin can take his spot there. Maybe we'll even see Matteau get some time on the fourth line.

Still have a shot at drafting Bracco with the 36th.

Yeah, we might get lucky with him. Only 5 teams ahead of us, too!

 

Kylington is still out there, which probably should be our pick if he's there at 36.

 

Too bad Gurianov and Beauvillier were taken early. There are still some interesting players like Dennis Yan and Michael Spacek that will probably be available at 36.

Sterio - I get that people are worried about Zacha for not putting up tons of points this season, but why don't you like Barzal? I had the same concerns about Zacha, but I have watched some videos that show me he's an impressive (and complete) player. I like his skill set, and don't think he's the typical "hard working power forward" people are making him out to be. 

 

To be honest, Strome is the guy I'm worried about becoming a bust.

Who do you guys like for our second round picks? I'm really hoping for Gurianov at 36, but I also like Beauvillier, Yan, and Dergachev. 

 

We may get lucky with Kylington at 36, but otherwise, I think Aho and Andersson seem like they could be good picks if we're going with D for one of the second rounders.

 

Timashov is another interesting prospect who may fall into a later round.
