Pretty fvcked up the league didn't penalize them for the whole sexual assault stuff. Not necessarily saying they should have forfeited this pick, but it's such an "NHL" thing to award this franchise a generational talent while they're shrouded in controversy

Over the past 8 years or so, I've considered myself one of the "draft prospect guys" on this board. I had no idea the lottery was tonight. If that's not a sign that it's a great time to be a Devils fan, I don't know what is. I could hardly care any less where Bedard, Fantilli, Michkov, etc. end up.

They should have tried to force the ownership group out. Their owner handled it horribly and now that guy just got handed a new money tree. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Yeah I was hoping he’d go to Anaheim. Chicago doesn’t deserve the kid.

I don't give a sh!t that he went to Chicago, just happy he didn't go to Philly or Columbus. 

Chicago is just another example that karma and all the other superstitious sh!t people go on and on about is nothing more than bullsh!t.

Ohhh is that what happened? I didn't see the Columbus pick either. 

Thought Weekes screwed up

I think he did screw up. If I’m a C-bus fan I’d be pretty annoyed they take the thunder out of this big moment.

If the Ducks go with Fantilli who looks like a great player then the Jackets still get a shot at Michkov, which is in no way a bad consolation prize. 

Yeah some damned good players at the top end for sure.  There's been so much chatter about Bedard that the other kids aren't getting discussed as much as they should.

Michkov should be drafted by Ducks, but I think he will be picked by Sharks or Mtl. 
I don't think Blue Jackets will draft him, they need center. And Kekka is on the hot seat now with Johnny Gaudreanee and Laine on contracts. 
Sharks only started with their rebuild and their group doesn't afraid of Russians. And Michkov will not play for them next three years, it will help to achieve more talented players on the next drafts. 


Ducks should make serious work on this market, Zegras and McTavish should be better next season, Fantilli may be can make some impact from the start, if he will have good partners to make some job for him. And west is pretty open. 

I think jackets will draft Carlsson and it will make them very good in the next few years. Its not the question of next year, but in few years they have a lot of good stuff to make their sky high. 

Its too damn sad we don't have first this year. I'm not upset we spent it in Meier trade, im happy with it. Its just so fun to work with the draft, there are so many interesting players in the first round. But I just don't have so much time to make so much deep dive to study potential 40-70 picks. Will figure it out after draft and will watch tapes/games of what we will got. 

Obvious need is centers, but I have a feeling, that good ones will not fall so far. 
I think if there are no obvious options with big scoring centers, we should find more drivers on this draft, may be with lower floor. Feels like we don't have enough in the system. 
Would be great to find power scoring forwards(Vadim Moroz). And mobile defensive defensemen with good skating ofcourse. I know we have some, but defensive work in nhl is so tough, more often its about mentality and defensive IQ(don't forget about good skating and normal level of other skills). And future cap issues, new deals of Luke, Dawson and Simon will push organisation to make regular rotation in the bottom of offense and defense.
