#MilkingIt

Getting used to being excited about the draft has been tough. I still want the team to win and I'm anti tank but at this point in the season I always find myself at a crossroad.

Currently have Glass ranked 12th, he's been impressive but I still really like guys like Hague, Tolvanen, Valimaki, and Rasmussen. Actually in the process of rebranding my website, and got my rankings

If the Devils lose to philly on Tuesday there's a legit chance Arizona could pass us. I would be surprised if we beat the pens or isles and the Yotes play both Vancouver and Dallas coming up.

We need to do our part and lose out.  These games mean nothing as wins.

This pick we get, whatever it is, 29th, 28th, 27th...the player we select better turn out to be fvcking amazing. (Don't worry, no pressure, player-to-be-determined, whoever you are).

This is fvcking embarrassing.  Can't believe Arizona has almost caught us, when they were a good solid 15-20 points behind not long ago.

you would think devils would get a little elias excitement bump. would not surprise me to see them win both thursday and Saturday. i'd bet they go 2-2 in these last 4.

That would stink, do the right thing for patty... show him again he's leaving at a good time, lol...  no way does he come back to this mess

Zero regrets

Someone else I hope the Devils give consideration to as a Deb replacement would be Julie Robenhymer. I think she's done generally pretty well as the Devils All Access host, and she also has a pretty good base of hockey knowledge (she's not hard on the eyes either lol).

Looks aside I think Julie R. would be a great replacement for Deb.  While I do not have quite the hate for Deb or Johnny Mac that a lot of others have, Julie seems to be in better tune with the Devils and NHL in general (based on her twitter and other reports she does) than Deb.

Oh... And what about the race to the bottom? 

Another decisive night... Let's go Vancouver! How dare you to tank like that... A tiny effort would be appreciate! #TeamBoucher

Vancouver sucks. Lost again. Hard to be mad at the Devils for last night because for one, fvck the flyers, and two, they have lost 18 of their last 21 now. There's really not much more they can do. Thursday is going to be massive. Don't see us beating Pittsburgh and then you've got Coyotes vs Canucks. Ideal result I suppose would be Yotes in OT. All teams would have 70 points going into the weekend then.

Yeah, that win last night was pretty brutal, but I think sportsclubstats doesn't see that Vancouver and Arizona play one another?   Right now they have NJ as 61% to finish in 27th but one of Vancouver or Arizona is going to win on Thursday, so there's no reality in which both teams finish out the year winless.

EDIT:  I suppose it does, since Arizona is -12 while NJ is -9 and Vancouver -10

So at worst we finish 4th overall but pick 6th overall. Still not bad. As long as we can get one of Patrick, Hishier, Middlestadt, Vilardi, Glass, Petterson, or even Liljergin I'll be content.

The site I've been checking out a lot, recrutes.ca, has us taking Miro Heiskanen. That was at fourth overall though. Who knows where we'll actually pick with the lottery and the remaining games left

Miro Heiskanen has been intriguing, he's rocketed up a lot of draft boards and there's a very real chance he's the first defenseman chosen. From what I've gathered, he's a legitimately explosive skater on the blue line, which is certainly attractive. He's playing against men in Finland and appears to be doing fine, only thing for me in this draft is proven production means a lot to me in a draft that's relatively thin, always like the idea of selecting guys that are proven producers, rather than banking on someone starting to produce based on the tools you see (i.e. Josefson, plenty of tools but no toolbox). For that reason, I prefer Liljegren, Hague, Foote, Valimaki, and Makar ahead of him, but I'm way in the minority thinking he's that far back.

The Devils can still finish 5th to last but that is a slim possibility.  However, with Vegas coming in, the team that finishes 4th to last still has a 28% chance of picking 7th and a 5% chance of picking 8th.

no - worst is we finish 4th overall and pick 8th overall

as triumph said, lets say the season ends

col-ari-van-njd

for all intents and purposes, the finish is really

col-ari-vegas-van-njd

so that means if 3 teams better than NJD all win the lottery the order would be

lottery 1 - lottery 2 - lottery3 - col - ari - vegas - van - NJD

and wouldn't that absolutely be fitting for this clusterfvck of a season. with that being said, i'm surprised the odds of that are even as high as 5% as triumph notes.

games left:

0: Devils (3): PIT, NYI, @ DET

-1: Vancouver (2): @ AZ , EDM, @ EDM

-2: Arizona (2): VAN, MIN

Devils lose out and AZ beats VAN in OT and Devils are second worst overall (all tied with 70 points but Devils have least amount of wins). Assuming that Arizona loses to MIN and VAN loses both games to EDM, this is what we have to hope for. What kills me is I think the Devils are getting points in at least one of these 3 games and probably will get 2 or 3 out of the possible 6 points.

I think AZ would still be behind us because we have 2 more ROW. It doesn't go by just wins, gotta be ROW. We have 25 and they have 23. So we need them to scoop an additional point versus Minnesota.
