Nico went to a Red Bulls game and Yankees game and then walked across the street to go to Hobby's. Not exactly a real tour of the streets anyway lol

True. To be fair, the area surrounding Yankee Stadium isn't amazing, but Yankee Stadium and the experience it entails makes up for it.

Nah, NJ is great. Newark tho, kinda dilapidated. 

Newark is not great, but- as you know- the players don’t live in Newark.

Yes, I'm not arguing that. You don't have to convince me. I just made a simple stupid comment about Newark not being the hottest place to be your introduction to the Devils. I'm sure he'll love it.

What a turnout by our fans, amazing setup by the team, they really transformed the plaza, had so much fun.

Just leaving a White Castle in Jersey City, baked out of my mind, that’s how you know tonight was amazing and life as a Devils fan moving forward is going to be great, pivotal evening for the franchise.

Also, the new park in front of the Rock is AMAZING, they did an incredible job, so well designed.

just getting home from work, awesome to see this.. pretty much got what we all wanted. I'm guessing we used  all the picks and didn't trade anything though?

So jack is supposedly signing autographs “Jack hughes 86” to people at the draft. Interesting if that’s his number.

The Devs just got a star, this draft is already amazing. Looking forward to seeing Hughes on the ice

love that he is the face of American hockey for years to come AND he is a Devil.  Killing two birds with one stone.  What a great day!

So it’s almost a definite that he’ll wear #86. At his family’s post-draft party, they wheeled out a cake with jack Hughes’ devils jersey on it in icing. Number 86.

Kind of cool that his brother wears 43, so he wears 86 (double). Pumped to see the younger brother wear #129

I’m drawing a blank, have any other notable Devils worn a number in the 80’s besides Mogilny?

I know Lou was against the high numbers.

Just looked it up. The only number in the 80s Devils have ever worn aside from Mogilny with 89, is 88. Two players:

Garry Howatt 1983
Rocky Trottier 1984

Having three number one overall picks on one roster has to amount to something? Right?
