  1. GDT: Caps @ Devs 1:00 PM

    Moore is really not good.  He's terrible in zone coverage.  His numbers are horrendous when he's not playing with Severson and he got his head caved in again today.

    No, I know that.  That's totally fine, and I know we like each other's presence on the board, and let's go Devils and all that.  Just please in the future don't speculate about what I might think based on your intuition, that's all.
  3. Relentless We Are vs Old School Lou Feb. 4 GDT

    Come off it.  You insinuated that the arguments I make aren't genuine, that I just dig up numbers that support a position, especially if it's against what the mainstream thinks. I don't mind it if you bring up an argument I have made in the past, though. Next time I'd appreciate it if you instead searched my posts and find out what I might've thought in the past.  For instance, I can do this for you about me and find in the last month a post that indicates that you believe I am contrarian for the sake of it, and that speculates about my motivations for posting.  This post might've informed the tone and content of my posts here - likewise searching Gionta and my name might've informed yours. I would prefer not to have my name thrown around for what I might think.  It is just like rumors on this board - some idiot posts a rumor, people debunk it, then someone comes along and says 'What about that thing two weeks ago?'  It's something I would hope I don't do to other people on the board.  I don't think it's fair to do to anyone. Gionta's final game as a Devil should be at the latest in April of 2016.

    Please stop making arguments in my name.  Either make arguments yourself or don't, don't bring up my name and speculate what I might think.
  5. New Jersey Devils' Lineup/Roster Thread 2015-16

    No difference.  A lot of scouts for teams live in a particular city and so they go a lot, mostly to watch the visiting team.  So the Devils might have a pro scout who lives in Boston who goes to a lot of Bruins games.  Media members tend to report the scouting list when there's a lot of scouts on there, or someone unusual.  It's come out that someone like Conte would go to other arenas but would buy a ticket and watch from the stands rather than appear on the press box list.
  6. New Jersey Devils' Lineup/Roster Thread 2015-16

    Devils play Carolina twice this season - could easily be advanced scouting.
  7. I'll take it - hard for me to root for losses against the Rangers, and it's always nice to see Lundqvist blow it.  Blandisi's a fun player for sure and fits this system very well - they didn't trust him with a lead yet but I'm hoping that will come in time.    
  8. 2015–16 Prospect Thread

    Zacha has 8 PP goals out of 21 total goals - this doesn't seem like an outrageous split.  I'm more concerned about his shots on goal which have gone down in January compared to November.
  9. Wideman Shoves Linesman: 20 GM Suspension?

    There's almost no chance Wideman gets 20 games for this.  The NHL has already said that because it was not called a penalty on the ice, Campbell is free to give whatever suspension he sees fit.  I doubt that it will be 20 games.
  10. 2015–16 Prospect Thread

    I watched the Brandon - Edmonton game - or at least most of it, though I can't confess to watching it with the intensity I'd watch a Devils game. Baddock got two breakaways and was generally a relevant player.  Lots of talk about him 'being noticed' by pro scouts by the announcers - did they forget he was drafted?  Anyway he's 21 so that's what he should be doing.  Made some ugly passes though. Quenneville got hurt and then got in a fight the next shift so the kid's got some guts even if that's not necessarily what I'd want to see.  Did some good things besides.
  11. World Cup of Hockey

    Except this won't be the case for the next 2 Winter Olympics and probably not the next 3.  It makes no sense to have hockey players adjust to the time change and then play hockey in the morning, something they never do.  The IOC would never spring for it either.
  12. World Cup of Hockey

    Not when the games are in Kazakhstan or China they're not, the games would be on at 1 in the morning.  Let the NHL stop when the games are in North America or Europe again.  Which they won't be ever again because the IOC is unspeakably corrupt.  
  13. Wideman Shoves Linesman: 20 GM Suspension?

    It's the only explanation that makes sense is that he didn't know who the guy was and didn't see he was there until it was too late.  Does it make any sense for a player with zero history, a guy who's not a physical player, to just assault a linesman without provocation?
  14. Wideman Shoves Linesman: 20 GM Suspension?

    I don't think he should be suspended.  Dude barely knew where he was and was making his way back to the bench.  I don't really understand why he continued to play in the game, though.
  15. World Cup of Hockey

    The problem with Switzerland and Denmark is that at a best on best tournament they play a ridiculously bland, boring style of hockey.  I'm delighted the NHL booted them out of this tournament.  And I'd be fine if the NHL didn't bother anymore with the Olympics - there've been some great Olympic games to be sure, but shutting down the NHL season and compressing the schedule is a big thing, and to do it to hold some tournament halfway around the world that very few people are going to be able to watch live - it doesn't make sense. I know they've said that in 2020 the other teams are coming back, and the mishmash team and YoungStars team are an imperfect solution for the problem that the world doesn't have 8 elite hockey countries.  I'm still looking forward to the tournament though - it's going to be fun, high-skill hockey.
