nessus Posted April 12, 2022 Share Posted April 12, 2022 I don't really care all that much what happens for the rest of the season. Sure it would be nice to lose out and have a better chance at drafting one of the top prospects. But this draft is tough to predict, and I have a feeling there will be a good player available where the Devils pick, regardless of what happens. Similar to @Guadana, my list is Slafkovsky (1), Jiricek (2), Nemec (3). And if the Devils have a top 5 pick, there's a good chance at least one of them is available. I really think Slafkovsky not only is the best player in this draft outside of Wright, but he also would fill an organizational need. His raw numbers don't jump out at you too much, which hopefully means that other teams will be cautious about using a top 3 pick on him. The guy is essentially a perfect winger for Hughes. I like Jiricek a lot because he is one of those complete package defensemen who has got size that he won't be afraid to use. This is something that I feel our team is lacking. Another reason I wanted Okhotiuk to get some games this season. Nemec's production has been excellent this season, especially lately. I would be happy with this pick even if the Devils opt for him over Jiricek. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
