New Jersey Devils

NHL Teams :

Team Needs: D, C, LW, G, RW

Draft Preview: Jack Hughes is the undisputed number one, but this would mark another centre with little size added to the team's centre ice position. Did Ray Shero's comments of no-comment on selecting Jack and saying," It's hard right after this to talk about it because there are so many good young players in this draft, but for us, we recognize Jack is a great young player and it's certainly a great night for our franchise..." Does this leave us feeling they might be willing to select one of the "other good young players?" Many think Hughes can make an NHL club next October even if it is to act as a PP guy who sees limited minutes at the bottom end of the line-up while building his strength. Many also think Kakko is much more suited to come into the NHL straight away, and not get pushed off the puck. Is this what Shero was eluding to? Is he just being noncommital to Hughes until his final draft meetings with his scouting staff? Lots of speculation by me, because Shero set me off! The Devils have three more picks before the end of the second round. I bet at some point they go new age defender hunting, maybe by using picks to move up, or that first one to go down.
