Smith I think is ready to jump into the NHL next season – I honestly thought he was ready this year, just had a rocky start in preseason but I think he would have stabilized.

Ponderous decision given the state of our defense. he clearly would have been better than at least Mueller and Carrick.

Bing win against pens 6-4. Boqvist scored twice and our kakko scored once. Now he has 3+3 in 4 games for us.

Kuokkanen looks like he really could be something.

Boqvist has scored 7 goals through 16 games in Binghamton. Maybe he can develop into that goal scorer we have been needing at the NHL level.

Canes fans are probably so pissed right now. Kuokkanen has been lighting it up since coming over, and Vatanen might not play a single game for them at this point...

another win for bing - now 5-1 against phily. Bastian has 1+1. He had decent plays year ago with njd and i think he deserve some time instead of stat monster hayden.

This mock draft site has us taking two more Ottawa 67s.  I realize some of there guys won’t be on the 67s next year but retroactively that would have to be a record for prospects on one CHL team you would think

Not sure how I feel about missing out on a guy like Raymond but Rossi looks like he could potentially be another elite high IQ playmaking center. NJ needs some wings and Dmen to work out.

Everything start to happen after we trade hall for Nick Miracley.

24-7-0 since 12/27.  That includes 1-0 in OT and 5-0 in shootouts.  They’re on a hell of a roll.

The Devils would be really fortunate to draft Rossi. It seems like the only knock on him is his size, but when you watch clips, he doesn't play small at all. There are so many things to like about his game, and he's really beating up the OHL, even if he is on a really good team. Even if you're picking 3rd overall, a case could be made to take Rossi there. Hopefully some teams will worry about his size, but I have a feeling he'll be gone before the Devils pick. Quinn would be an awesome addition too, and more closely fits the mold of what the team is lacking now, a true goal scorer - even if he doesn't have the size. Sanderson is someone I'm not sold on yet. He looks like a really good player with great shutdown abilities, but you wonder if there's someone else who may be available at around 10 who has higher upside. 

Regardless, if those are the three players that the Devils take in the first round, it'll be a major success.

Phonex arizonix have only 6 more points than us and we have game in the hand. Stranger things can happen in draft day. i`m little bit scary for hall luck on draft day, and i dont really want to devils have some chances to draft byfield.

What are your thoughts on taking Askarov with our 3rd pick if he’s the BPA? Mac certainly looks like he’s going to be a true #1, but I remember being really impressed with Askarov in the U18 last year.

devs win 3-0 against pens. one step closer to playoff

They might even make a big dent in the playoffs. Fitz has to keep them in tact

Senators is a strong team. Few years ago we wait  for more but Toronto win in 7game. 
but - can we sent down to the bing someone like Hughes? It could be game changer move.

edit - he can’t. “Needing to be on the AHL roster on nhl deadline day to be eligible for the AHL playoff”. Damn

I don't think Anderson is eligible to play too.

Are you not a fan of Byfield?

I'm in two minds about it with Askarov. On one hand, there's a huge bust potential with goalies, and even if you get him at pick 20, there are still some really solid choices that are going to be available at that point in the draft. Typically, I have felt that taking a goalie in the first round is not the best bet. On the other hand, I think goaltender remains an organizational need. Other than Blackwood, I'm not sure any of the goalies in the Devils' system have shown that they're NHL quality yet. Plus, Askarov isn't just your run of the mill first round talent, like Malcolm Subban or Zach Fucale were. Scouts are comparing him more to a Carey Price-level prospect.  If the Devils are picking 3 times in the first round, maybe they could afford to gamble on one of them, especially if that pick is the third of the three.

At the end of the day, I'm leaning towards not taking him, mostly because of how deep this draft looks. But also, it's hard for me to base my opinion on anything other than what scouts are saying. By watching video, I can't tell if he's actually a future top goalie in the league or if he's Thatcher Demko.
