My guess is that they had some players they liked a lot and felt would be available around their draft position, so they decided not to forfeit the pick. Could hurt them in the long run but who knows
Shortly after the Cup was awarded.

I'm pretty sure Lou made a calculated decision that with the players he had under contract, his team was a surer bet to be competitive in the next few years than the mystery of 5-6 years from now. Thus, a 1st round pick at 29 who starts to play a year earlier is more valuable than a 1st round pick in the high teens or low 20s.. even if that player is marginally better.

Of course all the Devils fans have to run to the defense of their team...on a RIVAL board.

I mean, what do you expect?

Really? A mod propagating the "our fan base is superior to your fan base"?

Go take a look at our GDT. Oh look.. a Rangers poster posted on page 2 and there have been handfuls coming by ever since. Hell, the last three posts all by a Rangers poster. What do you expect?

Can I not talk hockey here? Am I good enough of a human being to do so or should I wait until I evolve into a Rangers fan?

You can talk hockey here obviously.

Just don't expect the people here to be all peaches and cream about the Devils.

I just dont want this thread to turn into a warzone.

I'm sorry, Devils fans. Let me go to the Devils practice right now and kneel down below the All-Mighty Kovy and Marty. Let me ask them to forgive me for not being in love with them and being a Rangers fan, talking Rangers hockey on a Rangers board. Am I doing this right?

@drosennhl: Mashinter is going back down to Connecticut to play for the Whale tonight. Rangers weren't sure if Powe would arrive in time but he did.

@drosennhl: Miller talked as if he is in tonight. He said he was excited and called it his dream. It will be his first NHL game.

Because this board has ZERO sense of humor. In other teams' boards, they actually have fun. There is no fun allowed, in here.

Never expected that and I don't even care about the potshots you guys constantly take at us. Just like I don't expect you to care about the potshots we take at you. But I hate posters who make it like they are 'better' fan bases than other fan bases when, in reality, both fan bases are doing the exact same thing. We're all human beings, no need to pretend the team you arbitrarily root for makes you inherently better.

And no, I'm not saying you are the only party guilty of that either.

No Mashinter which means Bickel will likely play forward. Mashinter was called up as an emergency stater if Powe couldn't make the game.

Expect another 3 minute game from our fourth line, hopefully Miller is on the third.

Has to mean Bickel at forward. Skating as a D at practice today though... strange.

Unless Kreider is ready to go?

Wasn't Bickel practicing as a defenseman? I'm sure it doesn't matter anyway since he'll only get three minutes anyway but it's odd they'd have him practice there knowing they'd send Mashinter down. Maybe Kreider is ready to come back into the lineup also.

Or we'll simply play three forward lines and dress 8 dmen. Seems unlikely, though.
