Bet the Devils give up their 1st rounder this way.

Yup, might as well, unlikely you will get a chance to give up a worse pick than 29/30.

So next question is, what happens to the pick? Does the draft just "shrink" (i.e. skip their pick and 1st rnd is only 29 picks long), or do they give it to another team, or lottery it off?

29 team first round. Simple as that.

i'm getting ripped to shreds for basically calling the Rangers a one-man team and not much else. Am I wrong? We all saw what happened when Lundqvist leaked some.

Here? Or on another board?

Rangers got worn out by playing 14 games in the first two rounds. Their forte was blocking everything in sight and that *will* slow you down, eventually. Even if they were not seriously injured, and *were* still willing to lay down the body in front of those shots, you also have to be quick enough to get into those lanes in the first place.

And, let's face it, Lundqvist was not great in some of those games. After coming back from being down 0-3 the shot that beat him late in the game was not a good scoring chance.

It would be kind of cool to lottery it off though, with all 30 teams getting 1/30 of a chance.

When the Rangers' offense struggles, Lundqvist is their last line of defence... and their forwards were struggling big time... and Lundqvist wasn't able to bail them out. A "one-man team" is a bit of a stretch. They didn't get the goals they needed from their big guys and Lundqvist ran out of gas.

Didn't help with Torts playing the same four Dmen the whole game. Girardi, McDonough, Del Zotto, and Staal must of been exhausted by the last game.

Yep, they could have used a fresh Wade Redden there. Would've been a game changer. Sarcasm

The farther the Devils go.. the more chance Parise stays where he is. Lou will unload some contract to fit him in... he always does.

Pretty much too hard forechecking, fast skating teams for the final. Better than the shot-blocking defensive game.

Should be a good series. Volchy gets another crack at the Stanley Cup... but I really believe LA takes it...
