    Hughes or Kakko

    Sorry. I thought it was an open house with the entry draft which I will watch the first 15 minutes!

    My daughter got one of those. I didn't even though i'm a partial season ticket holder, Not that I would go anyway. I'll watch the first 15 minutes at home.

    Some observations: Schneider stones Kakko. In OT Kakko controlled the puck for a good stretch with Suter draped all over him. As mentioned above Kakko out muscled Hughes for the puck. I also would pick Hughes first but Kakko would be a fine first choice too. Too bad he'll most likely be a Ranger.

    Kakko with 2 goals (1 empty net) Big strong on skates. Obvious on ice 5 on 6 to get empty net. As I stated previously he impressed me at world juniors. He impressed me today versus men.

    Holy Crap! What a goal by Kakko!
  6. I like Caufield but i wouldn't think of trading a D prospect to get him. Yes I've seen our highly rated D prospects turn out to be not really highly rated after all. I've also seen the Russian coach cut down the cross ice passes between Hughes and Caufield on the big ice surface. Imagine what an NHL coaching staff could do on a smaller NHL ice, Yes Shero should look into it. However I think he'll find the price too steep. And as i stated above, right now I would hesitate to trade a D prospect to get him.

    Just looked at roster I only see Quinn Hughes #43 his brother. Has roster been updated to include Jack? Never mind I see he has been added. They didn't update roster

    The Russian goalie really impressed me in the preliminaries and in todays game. Then I find out he's only 16!

    the announcers kept mentioning most of the stars of the US squad are potential top 10 picks. The only thing I could think of him dropping to second round is his size. But that doesn't seem to matter any more in today's NHL.

    as everyone has mentioned Hughes and Caufield looked fantastic today. Hughes' cutting towards the net was very impressive. His passing was very good today also.

    Two major turnovers by Hughes. One led to the goal. The other he caught up to swede and cleanly took the puck off his stick. Hughes skating is amazing not the product of pre draft hype.

    Kakko really impressed me at the world juniors. Hughes was out for most of it. i hope they televise the under 20 worlds. I would like to see a healthy Hughes in action. I was wrong in wanting size in the Nico Nolan draft. Right now I'm still leaning Kakko, but if Hughes is the skater that all the stories say he is, then he is the pick. With Shero being Hughes father's agent and Hughes training with Hall, I say right now Hughes has inside track. Can't wait for June!
  13. At least you get perks. As a partial season ticket for over 30 years, I get nothing. I'm not expecting anything like the full season ticket holders, but in the past they would give me tickets for at least 1 game. I was so thrilled one Christmas when they sent me a partial season ticket holder one patch! ( Although I do have 2 seats. ) I buy the tickets because I like going to games. However after all these years I feel the Devils take me for granted.
  14. Just my 2 cents. The gray streak was less obtrusive than the blue fox glow puck. The box telling me that Patrick Kane almost skated a mile was interesting but a rather useless waste of screen space. Doc could have used the technology as he couldn't tell which 13 was shooting the puck. My daughter was complaining about it, but i reminded her these lines and boxes weren't for us. But to bring new people into the sport( Who are going to be disappointed anyway when there are no lines or stat boxes in a normal game. They are really going to be upset when they see some teams actually play defense!)
