Sadly, if we didn't win the draft lottery that year, we probably would have taken Dougie Hamilton at #8.

I've thought that exact same thing, I was actually rooting for the black and red to grab Hamilton (as the Devils are always willing to draft outside the box), but ultimately I was reassured by all of the Larsson hype and was cool with the pick at the time. I really can't blame the organization for drafting him, but oh, what could have been.

In Topic: NHL Franchise Values (Per Forbes)

Neboors, not trying to be a dick, but not sure what made you think those valuations from that site were anything close to being factual. Just look at those numbers. The Devils were sold for $320 million last year, which according to this would make them as valuable as the Bruins and top 5 or 5 in the league?

 

Some of the numbers posted there are probably half of what the teams are worth if they were to be sold. I'd say most of the teams in the league would be sold for more than what they think the Blackhawks are worth.

 

This guy has the Leafs at just over $500 million. MLSE had 75% of their stake (the most important part is the Leafs) sold for $1.3 billion.

Point well taken. However, I think the Prudential Center revenue outside of the Devils was a huge factor in the acquisition as well as the final purchase price.

 

Just to underscore this point, here's this:
