By the way, given the depth of this year's draft, is the consensus feeling on the Devils' board that they will give up their 2014 first?
Yup, the fact it's supposed to be deep, and NJ is hosting this year, might play a part in it as well. Also, for this year NJ has already traded a few picks, 3rd, 5th & 7th. Give up the 1st this year and it's down to 3 picks, 2nd, 4th & 6th.
