sounds like it'll pass based on tweets everywhere. I don't really understand how they are gonna structure the format but I'm sure it'll make no sense being the NHL.

Sounds like we'll get 3 picks this year then

if the devils don't get screwed out of first round picks, i don't care what they do. though i still don't understand how a team can expect a player to play for them in the playoffs after their contract expires on july 1. i wouldn't do it if i was a pending free agent.

wonder how the zona pick will work. is winning the play in round going to suffice to bump the pick next year up?

Yeah I just want that third first, couldn’t give a shit if a champion is crowned or how they do it.

From what I understand re: the contracts, they would just make the deals that expire 7/1 run through the end of this season instead

No, I think it's the second round, play in games don't count as the first. What do we get, an extra first if they win a round and he resigns?

*Conditions: If Arizona's 2020 1st selection is in the top three, New Jersey will receive Arizona's 1st round pick in 2021
**Conditions: The 3rd round pick can upgrade to a 2nd if the Coyotes win a playoff round OR if Taylor Hall re-signs in Arizona. The pick upgrades to a 1st if Hall re-signs AND the Coyotes win a playoff round.

i get it, but why would a player be willing to do that? if i'm a player with a contract that ends on july 1, i tell the team to pay up or i'm walking. fuck your playoff aspirations.

Wysh doesn’t actually watch hockey part 5,391. Alex Stalock has a higher save % than Price this season

He’s being sarcastic. The joke is how when this format was first being discussed every Canadian writer went to “what if a guy like Price gets hot” when he has been below average for a couple of years now.

EDIT: the article he tweeted actually says the Pens are afraid of Price. Wysh was making a joke about the “Carey price” factor

I don't really understand why, but the players seem to still actually think Price is the best goalie out there by a mile. Any time players are polled, he's named the best goalie in the league.

I don’t even know if there’s a concrete answer right now. Gibson is in the convo but had a down year, I think if you take Vas off the Lightning he’s still good but not in the “best” discussion, Rask is there, Hellebuyck I guess. Idk

Because they don't actually see many games and base it on what they have heard from other people.

Price would be frustrating to play against because he's a good puck handler, so maybe that factors in?

It's so hard to say, because so many of the seemingly good goalies play for great teams. Rask and Vasilievskiy in particular. I'd probably still go with Rask though, I guess.

That Shesterkin guy has crazy good stats too, but obviously way too small a sample to read too much into it. But he did it on a not so great time.

Metro goaltending could be pretty insane for a while

WAS: Samsonov
PIT: Jarry
NYI: that kid they just signed from RUS if he pans out
NYR: Shesterkin
NJ: Blackwood
PHI: Hart
CBJ: Elvis

The only team without a clear-cut “heir” is Carolina, and Mrazek can make it work on a good team if they keep him around

The current NHL makes most starting caliber goalies a total product of their defense and system. There’s almost no game changing types anymore. All of the good ones are pretty interchangeable.

We seem to found one of those guys in Blackwood but insisted on playing Domingue after off days and it cost us a spot in should be one of the wildest playoffs we’ve ever seen.

I think only the top seven teams should get a chance at picking first and then whoever gets eliminated, based on points standings picks 8-15.

Oh no they didn't say that's how it will be, I'm just saying that's how it should be. Why should those teams who get play in games get a chance at the first pick? Plus this way, if there are some upsets, the Devils could pick anywhere between 1 through 7, and if the Canucks lost to the Wild and Zona loses to Nashville then the Devils could have three picks in the top 12 :fingered:

Basically i want this to shape up by what's best for the Devils.

Not that it’s any better but I believe theres one other team in our position. Not sure who it is though. 5 teams with real lotto chances and 24 playoff teams leaves us and one other team.

You have to give the teams you arent giving a shot at the playoffs higher odds in the lottery.

Do it so the bottom 6 teams have a lottery for 1-6 within themselves.. then the teams who dont advance to the playoffs can be ranked by points for rest of non-playoff picks
