Hope this will be a little stone on the scales for non-Hughes bowl =-D

My kid follows hockey overall more than I do now and he's mentioned the Devils pursuing this guy.

I follow hockey overall more than any waking breathing human being I know and there have been writers saying it’s a good fit for a while. No rumors, though.

honestly makes me even more excited about the possibility of one of the guys we really like falling and the Devils getting Hughes AND one of the guys on Guadana’s list (who now is more valuable to me than any insiders and I am not being sarcastic lmao)

He didn't say there were rumors about it, just that he thought we should look into him.  He also said the same thing to me about Dunn.

Well, I don't know exactly who we should really pick by the Islanders ' peak if we use them in the draft. There are so many applicants, such an incomprehensible season. And I still have a life) I have two favorites - Bar and Morrow. But I can't say that it is necessary to take them and no one else. An interesting situation is that we can exchange our islander pick for several picks of the second round. Or exchange our 4th pick to Arizona. It is very interesting how Fitz eventually uses the current circumstances.

I'm really not too high on Edvinsson. From everything i watched and read about him. He's good away from the puck but can be a disaster with the puck, making a LOT of mistakes with the puck on his stick. And he's not really fast. And he's not bringing much offense. If we're gonna draft this high, i'd rather get a really good 2way guy not someone who's mostly defensive.

can anyone pull up some old draft threads so we can laugh at how we “would shoot ourselves if the devils took makar”?

Those are some of my favorite threads. 

I liked “you cannot draft Barzal with the 6th overall pick”.

Friedman has been mentioning the Devils when talking about Hamilton on the radio. Also Tarasenko. Says the devils want to bring energy into the organization

He said the same on NHL Network tonight.

I feel like it’s just lazy reporting though. I mean, we have a sh!t defense and tons of money, so we’re pursuing the best free agent defenseman available? How is that news exactly?

It's like going to the gym and not posting a gym selfie on the internet. Then it's like you didn't even go in reality.

Well that's my understanding of it anyway

Friedman is well connected though. If he reports it, there’s validity.

He may well be, but safe to say he didn’t go out on a limb with that one.

Yeah friedman can be trusted. And, worth mentioning that it’s easy to say “hmm expensive players might go to team that can afford them”, this is the first time in a while (since Shattenkirk?) the Devils have been linked to the top FA prize

and fellas lets remember tonight that no matter how bad ESPN’s coverage of the draft is, it could’ve been another year on NBCSN which is several times worse
