Funny interview.

pretty insane to watch this knowing what we know now.

jack scored his first nhl goal playing against quinn and luke was drafted by nj. so the chances of luke scoring his first goal in front of jack are pretty good lol

How awesome would it be if Luke also scored his first NHL goal against Vancouver, with both his brothers there? That would be as storybook as it gets lol

If I was a worse person I'd troll some of those old comments by Vancouver fans saying Jack would end up there and then they'd have 2/3 brothers.

Good. I like it. No need to rush him. We have pretty great LD depth of more ready young players.
Watchin him on WJSS. Cant say I like his defensive game against peers. I cant even name it "defense". 2 years in Michigan will help him to fix it. I hope.

I just realized I never voted. I picked Luke. 
 

I was right. 

Video cuts  from WJSS games. 

I dont call him bust, but he isnt close to be competent defenseman. And I dont think it is a bad picked. But this pick isn`t close to be the right pick for now. I really hope Michigan coaches will help him in defensive game. In all abundance of defensive game. I really hope devils will give him 2, even 3 years for develope. Maybe  2 years in NCAA and one year in AHL.

If it is sarcasm, Dare I say you sound pretty lukewarm on Holtz

if not, he is our player and brother of our future franchise top player. I wish him all the best.

Great article about Luke's tournament. Lots of good and positive takes in there.

(i know it's a paid subscription thing, if its allowed i can copy paste the text in here but i'm not sure? That'd be like circumventing the spirit of the subscription)

While I would have preferred Clarke, I am not going to hit the panic button on Hughes just yet.  Both Clarke and L. Hughes had warts in their games according to their scouting reports so we could be saying the same for Clarke.  I don't expect Luke in the lineup until at least the 22-23 season so he has some time to work on his game.

I wanted Clarke too but now that we locked Dougie for awhile i see things differently. I don't think Clarke was going to outplay Hamilton on the right side but i think Luke could potentially outplay anyone on the left side and be our top guy on the left. So if we can have 2 top pairing dmen that could either play on the top pairing OR split them in the top 4 and match them with someone a bit better defensively or 2way. We could have a very solid d-corp and well balanced. And im extremely high on Smith who can play on both sides and so does Luke. So we have lots of options.
