    Maybe by some in the Devils board but around the league my impression is they are underrated. Look at the commentary of Smith in the various Canadian WJC threads. People made plenty of ugly comments about him. Before the WJC some FIN posters left Talvitie completely off their roster projections. I don’t see Boquist being talked about in terms of how he might compare to a Lindblom on PHI who wasn’t EP but was very good in the SHL as a young player a couple of years ago.

    Provorov is having a real tough season, Chychryn is interesting I think he's a second pair D man at best. I tend to agree I dont think either do much to this team as we still wouldnt have a second line center and neither of those two are playing like top pair D men.

    All you can do is pick BPA and hope it works out. Looking specifically for another center is not the best way to build the team. Most draft picks take 5-7 years to mature even if some are laying in the league and even making a difference before then. If you view Castron’s drafts as Bratt Nico and Smith with some other players developing on a longer curve I’m not sure what more you could ask for.

    I couldn't remember how we used the pick, if it was used as a trade chip or made it to draft day

    Looks like he was #63 so not late in the round after all

    blackwood. Yes it's probably premature to assume we will go on some kind of winning streak, but it's also premature to assume we'll stink the bed even with him in goal, especially with his performance before the injury.

    We were dead last already before. Blackwood helped push us out of that.

    I wasn't on the board when Gelinas was drafted, but he wasn't getting much hype when he was in the AHL.

    When he came up to NJ the hype train went full steam, but prior to that, it was fairly quiet.

    Talvitie also was a ppg at the u-18 WJC, where like the u-20 he wore the C. Also was a PPG at Penn State this year. Led his finnish junior league in scoring as well.

    Much more to his resume then just this years WJC.

    Wasn't it wood who hand-passed the puck to zacha when he could've just let zacha take it himself for the breakaway. Idr when exactly it was, but it wasn't this season. Might've been in both of their rookie seasons. I remember facepalming super hard on that play.

    He's learning the game, more and more he makes the right play.

    His assist last night he was covering for a pinching d-man at the point and made a perfect d to d pass.

    Just one example, but he's been making smart plays all season.

    Huge fan of Turcotte. He and Zegras are incredibly underrated. Turcotte has arguably the best two-way game out of any forward in this draft class. Funny enough, his game reminds me a ton of Hischier's. Turcotte should be getting much more hype and should go top-5.

    As for Newhook, I got some good looks at him during the WJAC's. Newhook reads the play well and is a smooth and powerful skater. I was hoping he would be a bit more aggressive with the puck and "drive play" so to speak. He has good compete level and looks to be more of a goal scorer than a set-up guy, but is good at both. In the tournament there were stretches where he wasn't noticeable, and there is certainly room for improvement in his consistency. However, Newhook should go in the top-20 in June. He looks stellar.

    how are Kaliyev's wheels? I feel like he should be rated higher than the 20s

    I’ve read they’re above-average but not great. Also has a knock of being a PF who plays smaller than his size

    Devils should go BPA wherever they land and Byram would be great to add to Smith on the left side of the defense. I’m hoping for Cozens. Seems to have a bit of everything the team lacks upfront. Put him on Hischier’s RW for the next decade.

    I've seen him all over the place in ranking. He has a very good shot and not much else besides that. Some people see that as something that will have him go late first round since he's not above average at anything besides shooting, but other people will see him as a true sniper so may have him high because of how valuable it is to score goals and have a great shot. Could be a bellows type player.

    I like Cozens and Turcotte if we dont get Byram or a top 2 pick. I think cozens can drive a line with his speed and skill and is good in all areas. Turcotte could be underrated due to missing time with injuries this year but he is a great player and should be a great 2C.

    One of the most impressive things to me about Cozens is his consistency.

    I like it. I maybe flip Podkolzin and Cozens. I have Broberg in my top-10 since his talent and skill set are tantalizing.
