I think we took Muller 2nd in the Mario Lemieux draft. Or was it Shanahan?

Edit… they were both 2nd overalls 

Also Wilf Paiement (Scouts) and Barry Beck (Rockies)

Does this count as winning the lotto? If the NJ/MTL are the worst team in the league next year, does this mean there is no way they can pick #1 no matter what?

No this does not count as winning the lotto

Ah ok. Thanks. Those guys turned out pretty good.

They got the Devils taking Cooley.  Kinda feels like the Devils have enough centers.

That’s what I was thinking. But I want us to take the BPA, whoever Fitz and the scouts think that is, if we keep the pick. If we take Cooley, hopefully he can be good at wing. I’d rather take Slafkovsky though.

Maybe even trade down a spot, though I’d be surprised if Fitz did that.

I’m just glad I really only have to brush up on 2-3 guys, and not half a dozen. Got who I wanted last year in Luke, didn’t the year before with Holtz. I have no clear preference at this point, but if the players are ranked close enough I’d like to be able to marry BPA with need (so RHD or wing).

I felt absolutely zero disappointment when the Habs card was revealed as the winner. We don't need another center. The Devils get to choose the best non-center available. They aren't excluded from winning the lottery next year. This scenario is better than winning the lottery for us. I do see that some people are projecting Cooley as the pick. This is a 175 pound center. The last thing this team needs.

Oh who the fvck cares. You guys pick the weirdest sh!t to get upset about sometimes. We moved up. There is no negative to that. 

I'm not upset with #2 at all, I love it. BUT, I am absolutely not at all happy, and I think you have to recognize, that we've been fairly fortunate with some draft pick slots over the last 5 years or so and we really need to do something with it to avoid being compared to the Oilers.  It's a pride thing.

I would die happy if you could compare us to the Oilers again. They're playing hockey tonight.

I couldn’t care less what other team’s fanbases think about us. I had to hear and read for years about how the Devils “ruined hockey” because of the trap. It didn’t diminish all their success one iota.

Well yeah, I think those two things are totally different.... they've certainly turned it around, but how long did it take?  10 years?  15?  20?  I lost count.  They were miserable and terrible for a LONG time.  I don't want to be in that situation just for a few years of playoffs....they really haven't proven much.

I hear you, but that's not really what I'm talking about.  I don't care what anyone else thinks of our team...I care what *I* think of our team.  And what I think of our team the last 10 years isn't exactly great.  It's not quite on the level of the Oilers lack of success for so long, but if we don't turn it around soon we'll be in that conversation.   That's all I'm saying.

Anyone who gives a sh!t about the Oilers and thinks getting multiple high picks is a problem, I don’t understand you. 

Well they did get a generational talent so.....

 

I like Slafkovsky. Big, fast, physical good hands

So what? Do you think that they are upset they had so many firsts? They aren’t.
