But if they make the playoffs and win a round the conditional pick goes to a second from a third...and if they do well enough to re-sign Hall it becomes a first ...so it's better for NJ to hope they do well. 

I don't think he's going to sign there either way so I'm rooting for them to suck.

Bahl is obviously the most intriguing of the three prospects coming back. 6'6", 230 lb left shot defenseman that's going to be playing with Ty Smith on Team Canada at the World Juniors in a couple wee

So Taylor Hall admitted in his recent interview after playing PUBG that he “definitely” recognizes some of the same fans in the building every game.  And you guys laughed at me for wearing assles

I'll root for the Yotes to do well to help NJ. Idk why you guys would want to root against them other than sour grapes. I hope Hall does well. He gave some good years here before the coaching staff really fvcked things up. I don't blame him for wanting to leave this dumpster fire and win. 

Because I'd rather have a higher first round pick than a low first round pick and a third(possibly 2nd round pick)

You wouldn't rather have the second than the 3rd?

K.

Id rather have something like 10th overall than 20 something and a 3rd/2nd round pick.

Of all the people who I never figured would die on the hill of defending Ray Shero as the architect of Pittsburgh's success it was you. 

Shero isn’t the only reason Pittsburgh won a cup (and went to two) but pretending he had no hand in that is just silly.

I'd rather have two first round picks than one first round pick. To each their own.

That just seems so very unlikely.

I'd rather have made the 2021 pick a second or third and have removed all conditions from the 2020 first rounder.  The chances are not that pie in the sky that the Coyotes end up with a top three pick this year.

Neither is winning the lottery, but if I bought a ticket I'd still root to win the whole pot than root to split it with someone else because it's the outcome that is most likely.

Doe this mean were not making the playoffs???? 🤓 j/k

All kidding aside, Whether you liked Hall or not it was a trade that needed to be made. Hall needed the change of scenery as much as we did, if there was any chance of him signing long term (which IMHO there was not) it was gone by mid October. Though I do not think he was a cancer I firmly believe the longer this dragged on the more negative effects on the other players there were. His next contract needed to get done, there is a lot of mental masturbation probably going on in his head, what if I get hurt, is this team I'm on any good, if I wait UFA $$ Years location...Etc... Ray I'm sure ran the numbers and took what was the best deal.

We have a good foundation with Nico/Jack/Pickles/MB2 now ad picks and prospects on def like Smith/Walsh now Bahl plus whatever we can trade out at deadline this year not to mention new coaches with (hopefully) a new system. As a Devil fan I'm disappointed in this years team but I'm excited about their future. Lets Go Devils!!!!!

If he was and after the trade devils mystically start winning... he is our langenbrunner. With McLean everything is very clean like McLean’s and Hynes’s heads. But who will be our new Kovalchuk?

Shero didn’t build squat, he fine tuned around two of the top five players in the sport. Rutherford won more Cups in fewer years there.

Actually he literally did build their first Cup winner. And like MB3 pointed out having the best players doesn’t automatically win you championships. It took the greatest goal scorer of this generation 13 years to finally win his first Cup. It’s almost like it had to be the right team or something...

yeah to claim Shero had nothing to do with the cup in 2009 because he landed 2 generational talent is ridiculous. He had a really good core to build around but he still had to surround them and bring a lot of help.

For their cup in 2009 Shero added Staal, Craig Adams, Phil Boucher, Cooke, Dupuis, Eaton, Fedotenko, Garon, Gill, Godard, Goligoski, Guerin, Kunitz, Minard, Satan, Sykora and Zigomanis. None of those guys were on the team when he took over.

And let's not forget that they made it to the cup finals the year before... then they had other Shero additions like Hossa, whitney, Roberts, Laraque, ruutu, scuderi, hall, etc

And Shero still had some additions on the roster for their cup in 2016, Bennett, Dumoulin, Kuhnhacki, Maata, Murray, Pouliot, Rust, Sundqvist, Zatkoff

So basically from the 2009 cup Shero brought in 17 guys and 10 more for the 2016 cup. And 7 more that we're brought by him in 2008 and made it to the finals. 

But yeah... he had nothing to do with all that success. lol

I'm in the camp of rooting for Arizona to suck. He isn't resigning there anyway and draft position in the first round is much more valuable than the difference between a second and a third round pick. 

It could happen to, this is Arizona we're talking about

Yeah i'm absolutely in that camp too. i mean from all scenarios... i want to get the highest possible first round pick more than anything else.

Arizona missing the playoffs means we get to pick somewhere between 4th and 15th... and a pick in the 70 / 80th or so.

Arizona making the playoffs and losing in the first round is getting us a pick between 16th and 24th... plus a a pick between 78 and 85 i think

Arizona winning a round in the playoffs is getting us a pick between 24 and 31.... then between 55 and 62... depending how far they make it...

Then Arizona re-signing taylor would get us probably 2 late first round picks...  but that's likely not happening anyway

Could you make it where the ears are floating just above his head so he is "almost" wearing them?

Zacha's level of almostness is sadly not something i have the skilled to achieve.

only few ever possessed that ability in the history of mankind
