The Devils won the NHL draft lottery Tuesday night, meaning they got to move up the maximum four spots from No. 8 to the fourth overall pick. Given that the team that won the lottery was already picking ahead of the Bruins, the B's, who have Toronto's first-round pick from the Phil Kessel deal, will remain at ninth overall.
For the second consecutive year, the Oilers will pick first overall. Edmonton selected Windsor (OHL) left wing Taylor Hall with the top pick last season. Edmonton general manager Steve Tambellini had tried to swing a deal with Boston to get the second overall pick as well in order to secure both Hall and Plymouth (OHL) center Tyler Seguin, but the B's kept the pick and selected Seguin.
The rest of the top five has Colorado picking second followed by the Panthers, Devils and Islanders.

Though he referred to the six innings allowed by Daisuke Matsuzaka in the second inning on Monday night as "horrendous," Terry Francona told the media on Tuesday that it didn't alter how the Sox viewed the pitcher.
"I think if we do things like that, we'll set ourselves up for some mistakes," Francona said. "You can't do that."
After his two-inning, seven-run performance in the loss to Tampa Bay, Matsuzaka is 0-2 with a 12.86 ERA this season.

According to a report from Vic Carucci of NFL.com, the Jets have interest in Randy Moss.
The wide receiver, a free agent, could be targeted by the Jets when the lockout ends, multiple league insiders told Carucci. Moss played for the Patriots, Vikings and Titans in 2010, setting career lows with 28 catches and 393 yards receiving.
Moss, according to the report, could be attractive to the Jets for a couple of reasons. The Jets have three wide receivers -- Braylon Edwards, Brad Smith and Santonio Holmes -- that are free agents, and signing Moss would keep him away from the New England, where Moss has indicated he would like to return.
