Giving up 18 or 19 (the way it looks like it would be heading) doesn't seem so bad when next year could easily be a top ten, unfortunately - and not very likely to be much higher than what it is now. Imagine how nuts we'd be if we 'had' to give up the pick last year and miss out on Larsson?

Of course winning one more round ends the discussion...but a lot of work to do on that.
Playing the IF games sets you up for, what if the team wins the division in 2014 and win a round? That automatically makes that pick worse. What about if they win the division in 2013 and lose in 5 next year? Still forfeit that one of this one.

I just don't see that as the right approach. If they like the talent mix around the 20 spot, hopefully later if we win a round which we are only down 0-1 in btw, I suspect they keep it. If it looks like a meh situation then they'll dump it and look for a trade in the draft to move up in the 2nd.

It's as good as gone. Now I just hope that Parise gets to tell Bettman to shove the pick up his ass as he's accepting the Cup from him.

Yep, we can close the book on this sucker...it'd be 28 at lowest since whoever loses the WCF would be below us if we lost the ECF.

Wait.

Forfeit the pick.

Draft Prokhorkin and call it a day.

Profit.

arent we assured to pick 29th or 30th since we have more points than PHX/LA? or is that wrong?

2013 3rd is off to Minnesota as the conditional in the Zidlicky trade.

No, 30th is cup winner, 29 is runner-up.

We gave up the Caps' two this year as part of the Zidlicky trade. The additional third next year was contingent on our getting to the ECF (and him playing a certain number of games).

So basically this year we only have our own two and three in the first four rounds, since we gave up our 4th for My Little Pony, then next year I believe we have everything but the third.

The 3rd is for 2013.

And I'd assume the 1st from 2012 is likely gone as well. That is still such a ******** ruling.

The conference final losers pick 27 and 28, but if the Devils lose the conference finals it would 'definitely' be 28 since they have more points than Phoenix or LA. So basically at this point it's either 28, 29 or 30.

One of those flying-under-the-radar prospects. 2nd round, not sure where specifically though, sorry. CSKA Moscow (In Slava we trust) player, center, 6ft2, left-handed, solid on the faceoffs, doesn`t shy away from the contact, two-way game, good character, seen him play (that`s very important lol). I`d add more but it`s 6AM and I`m a celebrating vegetable.

Night.

Carolina: D Joe Sova, 4th round pick (118th - 121st overall)
New Jersey: LW Alexei Ponikarovsky

Calgary: LW Pierre-Luc Letorneau-Leblond
New Jersey: 5th round pick (135th overall)

That's sexy.

In terms of our picks:

1st round (27-30)
2nd round (58-61) -- Sharks get the 55th pick for "losing" a former first round pick
3rd round (88-91)
4th round (96) -- For David Steckel
5th round (135) -- For PL3
5th round (148-151)
6th round (178-181)
