2015 Draft Thread

Recommended Posts

What separates Hanifin from Rantanen? Hanifin from Barzal? Why is Hanifin always considered the BPA? I don't get it. Its a stupid idea to consider when prospects are on the same tier.

I'm not counting on winning the first overall, but if we do that would be something.  It will be as if millions of Rangers fans voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

I'm sure they could care less if they're parading the cup around MSG in June

Look at how well Hanifin has done as a 17/18 year old freshman in a tough league, and an even tougher conference (Hockey East). I obviously am not a scout, so I'm mostly going off numbers and what I've read from reports, but I would definitely take a potential Doughty-type of player over any of the forwards after the top 4. 

 

EDIT: I should mention, though, that I think both of the guys you listed are quite underrated. Rantanen was the second highest scorer on his team, and seems to be really talented. He's the guy I'm hoping we end up with. Barzal, too, had a great year, and is among the league leaders in points in the playoffs this year. I'd be happy with either one of them, but I do think that Hanifin is a bit better of a choice if all three are available.

7.5 % people, its something. Pray to the hockey gods this week.

Oh unseen hand please guide the ping pong balls straight and true for this humble franchise in its time of need.

 

Amen

Going to be a great week.

 

Jarrett Guarantano is going to commit to Rutgers tomorrow and lead us into a new golden age of college football, and the Devils are going to win the draft lottery and acquire a young forward who is going to revitalize this organization.

 

..a guy can dream, right?

Jarrett looks like hes going to Tennessee unfortunately. Hope im wrong. Haskins is a MUST. If Rutgers cant get him then say goodbye to the rest of the Jersey talent. The Devils WILL land McD or Eichel though!

you know the only way NJ ends up with Eichel is if they draft him with the number 1 overall pick right?  which is very unlikely

We could trade Schneider, Severson and Henrique + our first to Phoenix or Buffalo for the 2nd overall pick... There's alwayyyys a way lol

Yeahh unfortunately looks that way with JG, but a guy can dream.  Maybe he'll have a change in heart over the next 24 hours.  Haskins still has such a huge list of potential schools at this point that it just doesn't even make sense to worry about him yet.  But I know Rutgers is in good standing with him.  Should be an interesting year, one way or the other.

 

And  :cheers: to the second part of that statement

I believe there is a lottery for the #2 slot, as well.

http://www.mynhldraft.com/2015-draft/draft-lottery-odds/

 

No, there isn't.

 

In your link, it states:

 

"The NHL will also make a change for the 2016 draft where they will determine the top three draft slots and not just the first overall that has been done in the past. The team that finishes last could now potentially drop down to the fourth overall pick, and not the second overall as it now stands. 

"Three draws will be held: the 1st Lottery draw will determine the Club selecting first overall, the 2nd Lottery draw will determine the Club selecting second overall and the 3rd Lottery draw will determine the club selecting third overall." 

After the drawing for the top three slots, the remaining four through 14 will go in inverse order of their regular season points. "

I really hope JG stays. If he does, then 3pm tomorrow will be the start of USC-East. The dawn of a new football power. I wonder when Haskins is going to make a decision.

I'm a Rutgers alum, but even if JG comes, Flood hasn't shown the ability to recruit a pair of socks. It'd just be because JG's a legacy and OSU somehow pissed him off

If we keep #6 I seriously think Lou will go with Lawson Crouse. he might be the closest thing to nhl ready besides McEichell. Plus, this is Lou,

he's still smarting from the Teddy pick (watching Carlson as top 2 pairing d man)

I don't agree. There have been a ton of high quality recruits visiting and giving rutgers serious consideration. Two years ago, Rutgers had a top 25 class going until a lot of decommitments from various Star Ledger/ESPN 'scandals'. Now I do agree Flood has to actually close on these recruits and start bringing in top recruits this year.

Nothing recruits better than winning. Crucial season coming up. Good first season, now need to build off it.

Flood is not a great X's and O's guy, and I think that's the bigger problem.

By this time tomorrow night there will be a huge boost in McDavid jersey's somewhere.

 

I have a ton of friends up in Buffalo and sad to say nothing would thrill me more greatly than to see the Yotes logo uncovered at #3 and watching all the asshats up in Buffalo who bought #97 jerseys absolutely lose their sh!t.

Devils fans on hf are convinced trading the 6th overall for JVR is a good deal. I disagree and think we need to hang onto the pick but does anyone here think that's a deal they would do?
