  1. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    I agree - there weren't enough screens on the Henrique breakaway or the Coleman breakaway. So yeah, you've successfully shifted the goalposts. This is where I leave you.
  2. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    Henrique had a breakaway. Coleman had a breakaway. Hischier had an open net that he couldn't convert on. He also had a pretty open chance 1 on the goalie with some backpressure. http://hockeystats.ca/game/2017020322 Huh, look at all those little diamonds clustered around the net.
  3. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    You and I saw different games. The Bruins were good at clearing out rebounds and Khudobin was great. The idea that there were too many one and done chances when the Devils forwards had 30 shots - not buying it.
  4. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    They finished 32 points ahead of the Devils last season and it's unlikely that the changes both teams made in the offseason + aging closed that gap completely.
  5. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    They're a better team than the Devils, so no, I'm not terrified of this. I certainly don't like it, but if it happens, hey, they tried.
  6. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    The worst part about the shootout is the second-guessing when they lose. It's a giant luckfest. You have no idea who is good or not beyond the first few guys. Devils played probably their best game all season and lost. They are a nightmare for teams who cannot move the puck out of their back end - they will pursue the defenders and they have the creativity to make good scoring chances when they are able to force turnovers. Boston didn't seem 100% engaged in this game but still, the Devils really took it to them - Khudobin playing great was the difference.
  7. GDT: 11/20/17 NJ Devils @ Minnesota

    Zajac played only 12 minutes and looked bad in the time he did play - I'm hoping he can get his timing back soon because the Devils really need him. Stafford is invisible and needs to find a good suit to wear to games. I know they stuck Henrique on 'the 4th line' but that won't last and Noesen is just doing a much better job than Stafford. I know Stafford's game is to be invisible except for when he scores, but this is ridiculous - he just has zero impact when he's out there and loses way too many puck battles. Boyle is another problem - he's good along the wall in the offensive zone, but they can't seem to get him there because he doesn't have the speed to do anything in the neutral zone.
  8. GDT: Devils @ Winnipeg 3:00 PM

    Zacha was not picked by the current regime. There'll be endless debates about whether he was Shero's pick or Conte's pick or whatever, but I can't put that pick 100% in Shero's court.
  9. GDT: Devils @ Winnipeg 3:00 PM

    It's also that the top line isn't scoring, but I don't think that's because they're not getting enough chances. They're just not capitalizing on the chances they're getting.
  10. GDT: Devils @ Winnipeg 3:00 PM

    Winnipeg had no answer for them; Hall had 7 shots, Nico 6. They finally got one goal late but they got a ton of chances before that, especially when the game was close. 1st line is the last thing I'm worried about at the moment. It's those middle 2 that are an issue right now.
  11. GDT: Devils @ Toronto 7pm Msg Return of the Zajac

    Thought this might be the best 60 minute game they played all season, at least that I've seen. Cory stole one point but Andersen might've stolen two. Coleman's been a nice surprise this season but he takes a ton of penalties. Lovejoy wasn't horrible tonight. Boyle looked lost when he first drew in but tonight he looked quite good along the offensive boards. Reminded me of Zubrus, in a good way. Zajac will need a few games to get his stick skills back to where they should be but he is still really good defensively.
  12. Brodeur likely to lead 2018 HOF class

    Writers talk to people who are responsible for electing members of the HHOF, but unlike baseball they are not the ones who actually do it.
  13. Gibbons emerges as a scoring threat

    Gibbons has been a pro hockey player for 7 years. His goal totals by season, NHL/AHL combined: 11, 8, 16, 3, 6, 16, 8* (this year, through 17 games) Hockey is weird.
  14. Brodeur likely to lead 2018 HOF class

    The only St. Louis that should be being discussed here is Martin, because he's eligible too (and should go in, but probably won't). There's really not much to say about Brodeur's candidacy. Bill James said you could split Rickey Henderson in half and have two Hall of Famers and I doubt the same is strictly true of Brodeur, but he was very good to great for a very long time.
  15. GDT - Oilers @ Devils 11/9/17

    I'm fine with Nico passing in OT - there was not a ton to shoot at there; I think Talbot cheated for the pass and got it. Whether Hischier passed it to the wrong spot or Hall should've slowed down/stopped, I'm not sure.
