Don't care about the picks we gave up at all. Happy to have Poni. Anyone drafted after the 3rd round is basically a crapshoot anyway, so I'm not that upset that we parted with those picks

Crapshoot until like four/five years later.

Yeah, he totally flew under the radar.

It makes me keep tabs on guys like Helgeson to see if they do the same. I didn't even know he was a draft pick of ours at first when he was called up, it was like a "who the **** is this guy" and now he's an important piece of our defense.

Somehow Fayne was some random call up as a first year pro. He was in a line with a bunch of junk we were bringing up. OMG, Corrente, Eckford, some of these names are making me sick!

He stuck though.

Tyler ****ing Eckford. And we used to pimp that guy as a legit prospect.

But yeah, our depth was ****. Might explain the first-round exits...

Dude was like a last round pick too that year. Whatever year he was drafted in. My favorite hyped prospect though was Barry Tallackson. Talk about pimped as a legit prospect.

''Next year Tallackson is gonna play opposite Elias on right wing! Bring up Tallackson this year cause he can play on the PP, or PK he can do it all!'' The way this guy was hyped it was like he could play everything.

I posted all our 4th round picks since 2000. Only Janssen and Matt Halisheck have made any NHL contributions and both are very limited at best.

I personally think they never intended to keep Matteau up. I think he would have been gone this past week if Zubrus never gets injured. We may keep him the whole season if we aren't healthy. I still see him playing some time in Albany next season.
Reid Bouchier was drafted in the 4th round, and now he's lighting up the OHL like crazy

Yeah, but right now he looks closer to NHL ready than far, cant really say he's never going to make it

Point is, I'm not crying over the lost picks. And even if our traded pick turns into a solid player I won't be mad because that happens. We got a proven player and that's what win-now teams do.

He may but can't say he will either,,,Point being 80% of 4th round choices will never ever make a contribution in the NHL...

Ya, he didn't have to go out of his way to tell people he was coming back, only to then say he'd been planning to leave all along.

There was a much better way to handle it. Tell people you're open to coming back, but you can't make any promises. Most people would have understood that. He could even have gone straight mercenary like Jagr and people would have understood that too. The pretence is what annoys me.

Fayne was one of the few good things to come out of the MacLean disaster year, the other, of course, being Larsson.

so what's the outlook on poni point-wise? he put up 18 in 33 games last year with the team, any chance he puts up similar numbers? i missed tonight's game so not sure what line they had him on or if they switched the lines throughout the game

Fayne was fresh out of College, and had hardly even played in the AHL. He got his shot, impressed and has been here since. One of the bright spots of our disaster year for sure.

Well, the Devils see the Flyers 3 more times this season... so he'll get at least 3 more goals, for sure.

It is clear Kovy needed Poni back because he was jealous of Marty and Clarkson's bromance, and the growing bromance between Elias and "Rico". Clearly the head bob tonight proves more bromances are brewing on this team.
