Interesting. Kakko does seem to that that protect the puck like Jagr style. I don't think we had a legit crease finisher since Parise and that is missed. But I still hope Hughes is the man - Newark needs electricity and excitement.

Hughes has the potental as a big homerun or a huge bust IMO.

Kakko on the other hand has played against men and might not have as big of an upside, but IMO has the better chance of being a top impact player.

If I'm the devils I would at least see what Chicago would offer to move up from 3 and take that and Pod to the bank. If not I take Kakko.

Was kinda hoping jerz would get 2nd pick so they didnt have to be the ones to choose. Itll be hughes but kappo kakko is probably the best hockey name of all time. I'm disappointed in that regard lol

We need a Kakko badly. We need a Hughes more. Nothing is a sure thing, but it would be hard for Shero to pass on Hughes. I won't pretend to know too much about either of them, but the buzz around Hughes has to be rooted in people that do know.

It's slim to none Kakko is picked over Hughes. Hopefully the hype is real.

Also Clayton Keller scored 65 points in his rookie season and Hughes broke his scoring record and is supposed to be much better. Kind of gives you an idea what we're getting.

Chicago's 3rd plus Seabrook's and his remaining full contract for Devil's 2nd

I think Kakko could be to Hughes, what Laine is to Mathews.

If you look back at the past few years of draft analysis around this time the parallels to 2016 are pretty close.

Why would we want to pay for Seabrook?

Yeah but the dude is suggesting we send a 2nd for Seabrook and a 3rd. We would need to be given a lot more and give a lot less to take on that contact.

Seabrook has negative value here. He doesn't improve return.

KAKKO wilbe a very good NHL player..


HUGHES could be a franchise player..

If NJD are built on speed like Calgary we take Hughes .
If NJD are built n size like LA was. we take KAKKO....

We take HUGHES....

As much as it sucks to say no to someone like Kakko, it's Hughes

I think Vancouver would give just about anything to pair the Hughes brothers up and market them like the new Sedins

what would you guys want from Vancouver in return?

I think you'd have to give #1 overall pick + to get a sniff at Pettersson

And that's when the Devils would hang up. I don't think the Devils should even consider unless the offer blows them away. You don't risk it.

Petterson's value is through the roof but I think the 1st overall is a good bit higher. Although who knows. He's established

people in Vancouver think he's going to be better than McDavid

I think they'd trade just about anything else to take Jack Hughes though

I also worry about his injuries. He's had a few already.

Yeah in general though I think it'd be a stand still, even if it's us trading for Quinn. There'll be buzz for sure, but it's probably unrealistic.
