Interesting move by the league to give the Devils a draft when they've got to give up a first rounder in the next two. Does seem to lock them into having to give up the 2014, but with the Devils nothing seems predictable .
Ducks and Yotes get shafted once again. Both clubs haven't hosted an NHL event in their history.
You have to actually bid to be awarded the draft...most years only have one or two (public) bids. The only bids that were talked about for this draft were from Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.
“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
If the Devils do things as stupidly as they did in the 1st round this year I am not sure I want to be at the draft. As soon as I heard it was in NJ next year I was excited but man what a disappointment this year with Lou picking Matteau. Seriously he should have traded up to ensure we got Subban or without trading up should have taken Bystrom instead of Matteau. So disappointed.
