    That's probably also true. They certainly tried. We know that much on Makar (Brooks has since confirmed). From what I've been told, had eyes for Pettersson and Glass, too.

    I have a few sources close to the team who pass information from time-to-time.

    It’s official.

    Kucherov suspended for Game 3 Sunday night in Columbus.

    That hole just got deeper for Tampa

    they had costentino on nhl radio this morning. basically he said that many view kakko as the no. 1, but shero probably takes hughes as he has a good relationship with the family. the upcoming tourney may shed some more light on this.

    Just out of curiosity , does that number exceed the number of people who feel Hughes is the number 1? And how close has it become? I know the gap has closed fairly significantly, but how wide is it now?

    I don't think you can pass on Hughes. I'd be saying the same with the Rangers at 1.

    I dont really care. I love kakko and his game, but if we get Hughes we’ll have a nice 1-2 in hughes-zib for many years, and center depth is arguably the most important piece for a cup winning team.

    That said, I cant see shero passing on hughes. Mostly because the huge hype he’s had for some years now. I’m pretty sure rangers would draft him if they got the #1 pick too, even tho they like to go off the board for a scandinavian guy.

    Can't speak for GM's, who are really the only ones that matter, but I have a spreadsheet of 12 different prospect raters. 11 of them have Hughes at #1, but several were done in January. We'll see if that changes as they are revised and finalized pre-draft, but there is certainly a current of opinion to swim against to pick Kakko first. (NHL Central Scouting gets to punt on this one because they separate N America and everybody else.)

    Me, too. Especially since the fact that Kakko is playing at a higher level kind of disses Hughes from the get-go. But that could be a double-edged sword.

    The Devils can't pass on Hughes. It would be an absolute nightmare for them if they were wrong. It would be far less of a nightmare if they stuck with Hughes and he busted but Kakko was good. Nobody would blame them.

    We're basically in a no lose situation. Even though I'm selling my soul for Kakko, I still won't complain about getting Hughes. Either way, both of those guys are going to be a huge win. But I just can't see the Devils passing on Hughes and then he goes to the Rangers just to make them eat shit.

    Gorton had the pressure totally taken off him by being #2.

    Is it Draft Day yet??????
