2020 NHL Draft Thread: Devils: #7 Holtz!

Recommended Posts

Mukhamadullin plays on the same team as 2006 Devil's draft pick Vladimir Zharkov. 

I was a big fan of Sharky back in the day. Maybe we got some inside intel there as well. 

14 games played , 6 points as a defender at 18 in the KHL is nothing to sniff at. 

 

Also some really good insight here:

"Shakir Mukhamadullin - 2020 NHL Draft Prospect Profile" https://thehockeywriters.com/shakir-mukhamadullin-2020-nhl-draft-prospect-profile/

 Specifically references the fact that a team with multiple first round selections may take a risk as the reward is so high. 

Really hoping this is not another Eric Gelinas type of pick.

But that run when he got miracle goals, and then netted us draft picks....

gross, I just referenced draft picks...

 

 

After having another beer after that 20th pick and shutting things down here, I thought about something to try and calm myself down. Tonight's draft SHOULD be complimentary parts for this team turning some corner and these guys slot in 3-5 years down the road to help fill the voids from veteran guys we should be signing short term starting Friday.

I honestly went to bed with the feeling of the scene in 'A Few Good Men' where Demi Moore goes desperate trying to strike the Doctor's testimony from the record, Kevin Pollak and her have a fight, then after things calm down, he says "Forget about the doctor, this trail starts Monday."

Well NJDevs, forget about the draft, Fitz's true test starts Friday...

After today the waiting game begins. I can’t say anything about the picks because I’m not a scout. Right now I’m excited because they could all be amazing players.

I love new toys and have the patience of a 5 yr old, but I hope the new regime doesn’t rush any of them. Man this teams gonna stink for another couple years, I think that’s the worst part.

Love the pick. Love all selections. Holtz has an absolutely lethal shot. Pencil him for 30 goals a year when he makes the show. 

As for Shakir - he’s a high risk, high reward type of pick - exactly the type of pick you make at #20 and your third pick of the round.

There's about to be a handful of panic buyouts, I personally don't care if the guy is "past his prime" or "doesn't fit the timeline" but if you can put the puck in the net, or conversely prevent the other team from getting good shots on Mac, your phone better be lighting up with Fitz's number come Friday.

The more I’m reading about Mercer the more I’m coming around on that pick. @MB3 might have been right about my bad take...

I can admit when I’m wrong. But posting live durning a draft is a bit like a GDT a lot of stupid sh!t gets said so I don’t feel too bad. Lol

I would like to direct everyone to this post. It has made history.

For the first time in the creation of the forum www.njdevs.com, someone has said “maybe i was wrong.” instead of tripling down on their point.

this is a day that will live in the history books of this great forum.

Rumors that Vegas is offering a 2nd + MAF for a 7th (and retaining 50% of his salary). This is the kind of move Detroit has been doing and needs to be something the devils are all over. It’s money for a draft pick; spend it.

@Guadana

how rare is it to play in the KHL at 17 as a defenseman? 

it`s very rare. How do you think what KHL coaches hate to do the most? yes. use young players. 
Shakir has a lot of problem, but he is good skater for his size, he has size and he has time to develope against men in high level competition. If he will play in KHL all the time he will be better. Salavat is a great organisation to grow.

At least Mercer is playing right now in the Q, Holtz in the SHL, and Shak in the K --- while the OHL isn't. I think them not being invited to camp plays into all of that. We don't know what this season will be, as much as I'd love to see them both around- can wait likely the one season. All three, I believe, will be at WJC i imagine?

And then you do what with Schneider? Binghamton? Buyout?

I don't give a crap about Schneider. The Devils are currently 6 million below the cap floor and 27 below the ceiling. They can afford to pay a goalie $5m in bing.

I didn't say we couldn't, I was asking for what you were proposing. I agree with it.

A choice of what? He doesn't have an NMC/NTC. 

According to CapFriendly, he has a Modified NTC. I read elsewhere he has a list of 10 teams he cannot be traded to. 

Odds on favorite that NJ is on that list.
