  1. Glad to be of service. This thread has been a lot of fun - let's never do it again.
  2. Yeah, this is where I'm at. I'd even be content with 5 given how we slid down to 3rd worst. But 6th would be quite annoying - thankfully it's somewhat unlikely.
  3. Missed the game but it's just as well. 29: NJD -11 30: LAK -11 Los Angeles would 'win' any tiebreakers so they have to finish with more points than the Devils.
  4. No, this is bad news - the Devils 'winning' tiebreakers means they finish ahead. Buffalo has fewer regulation/OT wins and LA has a worse goal differential, so they would finish behind us in the event of a tie (provided the Devils don't, e.g. win a shootout and lose in regulation and Buffalo wins 2 games in regulation).
  5. Some hope in this miserable season. I've been following Dellow's work for 10 years now and he's got a sharp mind. It can't hurt to have people like this in the organization.
  6. Los Angeles pulls off the stunner in Arizona. 28: BUF -8 29: NJD -10 30: LAK -11 New Jersey presently loses tiebreakers to both Buffalo and Los Angeles, so if they end up tied with either (or both) in points they will lose on tiebreakers.
  7. With their win tonight, the Red Wings have clinched finishing ahead of the Devils. The highest the Devils can finish now is 28th.
  8. Bad night for the tank. Glad I didn't stay up to watch the 3rd of the LA-CGY game although I would've turned it off after the 4th goal. 27: BUF, DET -7 29: NJD -10 30: LAK -12 The Devils have now clinched finishing ahead of the Senators. Sportsclubstats gives the Devils a 72% chance of finishing in 29th.
  9. I turned off Boston-Detroit at 2nd intermission when Boston was ahead figuring they were 95% to win - imagine my surprise. 27: BUF, DET -7 29: NJD -11 30: LAK -11 31: OTT -16 Since Buffalo and Detroit play each other, there is almost no chance of finishing 27th anymore - Sportsclubstats lists it as a 3% possibility even if the Devils win out. They give a 49% chance for 29th, 43% chance for 30th. This is good.
  10. It won't quote on my phone but whatever - McLeod not being a big piece of the future is all the more reason why losing a lot this season was so important. First, it illustrates how important it is to pick high - yes, there's some excellent players selected after McLeod but there's also a lot of misses. Meanwhile most of the top 10 are already established NHLers. Second, the Devils need another impact player. They're going to pick no worse than 7th so the odds are much better of getting one.
  11. The Devils ice time leader last night was Connor Carrick. They played Nico 17 minutes. We can keep going here but the Devils are still short a ton of players thanks to trades and injury. They need a 2nd line and some D, but there are some bad players here who will be in Binghamton or not around at all next season. They're not far away.
  12. Doing this on a phone sucks, but I'm committed. 26: ANA, BUF -5 28: DET -8 29: NJD -11 30: LAK -12 Ottawa is out of reach here.
  13. Anyway, enough of that, the RACE TO THE BOTTOM continues with a new contender. 27: BUF -5 28: NJD -10 29: DET -10 30: LAK -12 31: OTT -16 EDIT: Buffalo has 2 games remaining with Detroit. Let's hope for some 3 point games in those contests. Still, that is huge that someone has to win those games.
  14. Kovalchuk was used on the 4th line a decent amount this season and he has several games below 15 minutes - for a guy who is used to playing 20 minutes a game every game I imagine that feels like 5 or 6 minutes. That said, while LA's implosion makes it hard to evaluate him, I still don't think he's a player you want on your roster.
  15. The Devils finished fourth worst but went into the lottery as the 5th worst team because Vegas would be considered the 3rd worst team. Edmonton finished 3rd to last in 2015. But yeah, to answer Jimmy's question, lower is just generally better. By finishing one position worse, the Devils would reduce their odds of drafting 6th or later significantly - they're 42% to pick 6th or 7th right now, but if they finished 3rd worst, they'd be 15% to pick 6th.
