    i mean the Rangers have absolutely no shot at winning the cup. I know a lot of you guys believe in the whole "once you're in you never know" but come on lol

     It's way safer to hope for them making the playoff than having a shot at landing a top prospect. they have a WAY better chance at winning first overall or getting a good prospect by picking earlier this year than making it all the way

    They have a top notch goalie, and one of the best players on the planet. Crazier things have happened. 

    I don’t think they will win the Cup either, and you’re right their chance at #1 is much better, but I disagree there’s “absolutely no shot.” If Shestyorkin went on an insane run (like Binnington or MAF) I’d be pretty damn worried. 

    This also isn’t your typical year, so who knows what to expect...

    The best scenario imo is the Rangers lose the play-in round but then do not win first overall. I am not wiling to risk the Rangers with 1st overall so I will be rooting for them against carolina.... 🤢

     

    For the Devils if you want picks this year, i believe we want Vancouver to win the first round, and Arizona to lose the play-in?

    It does?

     

    If the Rangers lose the play in, they are one of the 8 teams eligible for the No1 overall pick that we know is going to one of those teams correct? Under normal circumstances i always root for the Rangers to lose, but in this circumstance, id rather have them win the play in round and then have no shot whatsoever at 1st overall if that makes sense. 

     

    In an ideal world the Rangers lose the playin, AND dont get the no1. I just dont trust our/my luck that much.

    Your first sentence says the best case is for them to lose the play-in, but your very next sentence says you’re rooting for them to win it. I understand why, I just thought it didn’t quite come out right?

    That would be a huge NO for me on keeping Nas. And I completely disagree with Button that it would be “delusional” to believe the Devils could make the playoffs next season. They add a capable backup, and Mac keeps playing at a high level they could be a bubble team. Especially if Nico, Jack, Bratt, and Gusev all have better seasons, which I think is pretty likely. 

    Also, how about having a more experienced coach behind the bench precisely because we have such a young team?

    Your first statement seems contradictory.

    As for the conditional picks, iirc correctly, we want Vancouver to make the playoffs to get their pick this year instead of next, and Arizona we get their pick no matter what unless they win the lottery (which is scary with them having Hall). So I think we want Vancouver to get bounced in the 1st round of the actual playoffs, and Arizona to lose the play-in, but not win the lottery. Which would give us the highest possible pick. 

    I think...

    I'm bummed because I really had my sights on Rossi and now that DET can't possibly get Stützle, Rossi may be their next choice. 

    Not really sure how excited I'd feel taking Raymond or Perfetti. They just seem like high ceiling with high risk. I know he's further down the list but I like Lundell. I'm just hoping NJ's scouting team has done their homework. Hischier and Hughes were easy, they need to prove they pick correctly in the top 10. At the end of the day I don't know sh!t, that's why I sit behind my keyboard and type furiously on this board. 

    Anyway, still crazy that a team playing for a playoff spot will get such a consolation prize over DET or OTT who desperately need some help. 

    Perfetti is supposed to be one of the best natural goal scorers of this draft class (after Laffy). The only knock of him seems to be his skating, but we desperately need guys that can put the puck in the net for Nico and Jack.

    Unless we were picking 1st or 2nd I am not too bothered about picking 7th. There doesn't seem to be too much consensus around the order 3-10. Every player seems to have some upsides as well as down. But over the last few years the 7th round pick has thrown up some good players. 

    Looking at the last 10 #7 picks and it’s extremely encouraging...

    Jeff Skinner, Mark Scheifele, Matthew Dumba, Darnell Nurse, Hayden Fluery, Ivan Provorov, Clayton Keller, Lias Andersson, Quinn Hughes, Dylan Cozens

    There’s some great players in there. I don’t know much about Fleury, and Cozens is obviously still TBD, but the only real bust in there looks to be Andersson (LOL).

    I don't disagree, but wasn't Smith projected top 10 though? I thought that's why he was such a steal at 17.

    He might of been, I’m not really sure. I’d still say Drysdale has been a much more touted prospect though. He’s the #1 defenseman in his class. Ty’s had Dahlin, Hughes, and a couple other guys go ahead of him.

    Ok... but who will we get ? Still a shot at Rossi at number 7 ?

    Rossi could definitely be there at 7. I think he goes anywhere between 5-7.

    I doubt Rossi. Maybe Holtz, Quinn, or Lundell at this point.

    No way Quinn goes that high. If we can’t get Rossi, I’d probably go with Perfetti if he’s there.

    1 or 2 would be great, those two seem to be a clear level above the rest.  I think anywhere else in the mix after that is fine, though falling to 8 or 9 would suck.

    I think we're fortunate to be in a position where we'll get a quality player no matter what.  I just hope we don't pick the goalie.

    Who are you including at #2 that’s clearly above the others? Byfield or Stutzle? Cause I could see either one going 2nd.

    I can say with 100% certainty someone will be annoyed as to how this draft unfolds. 

    Hoping it’s less of us than more. 
     

    If we get another #1, I will expect everyone who ever posted that the league has some kind of conspiracy against us to formally retract their statements. 

    Remember, having the #1 can be bad depending on who you ask...

    there’s the risk of him not being the absolute best player in the draft.

    well... if you need a car to do grocery and drive your kids around... those 2 cars are no good lol

    Again, it's about having a good match for your needs

    Not true. You can just get a Lambo or Ferrari SUV...

    Oh lord you totally pulled a Karen and wanted to speak with the manager there lolol 

    They literally had a letters section for fans to write in with their thoughts/comments...

    I wasn’t complaining about my Starbucks order being messed up. :P

    The author states Alfredsson is a shoe-in, but Elias ‘compiled’? Compiled what, over 1,000 points despite losing a full season and a half to lockouts, plus another half season to hepatitis? Bullsh!t. THN has always had a Devils bias.

    Yep. I wrote them a letter years ago (before I canceled my subscription) calling them out on it. Think it might have been after a certain cover story about Marty being one of the greats, “but please don’t let his team win another Stanley” or some such bs. Three guesses on their main reason why...

    As far as Elias being a “compiler” GTFOH with that sh!t. He’s one of the most underrated players of 00’s. If he played on a league darling franchise he would have been a big star.

    Can't argue much with that list, all 3 teams deserve to have basically the 3 best lines for each of their teams in the conversation for the top 3 on that list of 12.  As much as I liked and respected the A line, I feel like the Isles bunch was just a bit better.  Those guys brought them 4 Cups.  Our guys brought us basically 3 finals trips in 4 years, granted in a more competitive era.  The Rangers line was effective as well, and the numbers don't lie.  

    All in all, it's quite close for those 3 lines. 

    Arnott was gone for the last one.
