The Devils were under the impression they had a longer time frame to submit the paperwork to the NHL (something like 72 hours) when they only had 48 hours.

The Devils wanted to give up their 2012 pick but missed the deadline.
If the Oilers did that the entire fanbase would be screaming for the GMs head. And rightfully so. They should have had that paperwork in 15 minutes after the Kings won the cup.

They'd probably leave them in for the lottery and then make them forfeit the pick whether they win or not.
