Not likely, unless Lou's scouts have a vastly differing opinion than most. The general consensus is that this draft year is a weak one. Despite the pre-year talk of it being strong, pro scouts have said it will be a down year. Next year has had some talk of being compared to 03 in terms of talent and I love the top of the 2013 draft MUCH more than 2012 with guys like Mackinnon, Jones, and Barkov as well as others. You could be right and NJ could see it that way but the consensus seems to be that this isn't a great draft year
