    Solid signing. Great hands, good on draws, and plays a tough game.
  2. 2017 Expansion Draft Thread - LV Takes Jon Merrill

    Not so sure about that unless they have a deal in place not to take Rust. Pittsburgh needs Fleury to go away and would probably like to keep Rust.
  3. 2017 Expansion Draft Thread - LV Takes Jon Merrill

    I bet you see draft picks going to Vegas in the next 3 drafts as opposed to this one.
  4. 2017 Expansion Draft Thread - LV Takes Jon Merrill

    I believe Vegas can draft 3 goalies if they so choose.
  5. She's a really nice girl who isn't a bad hockey player either. I am sure she is excited to take on this next job and if you know anything about working for professional sports it is often best to work for a team that ins't your favorite because the day to day can sour you very much on the team. I highly doubt her Philthadelphia background will taint her capabilities to do the job. It's also nice to see a person that works hard get to a spot like this. Is it October yet?
  6. Devils sign Austin Cangelosi - C Boston College

  7. So when will the Devils be competitive again?

    I never hear of RFA's being pursued, but I think it should be explored. Yes, I know you have to give up some picks to do so, but depending on what the next few drafts are, it could make sense to poach a guy that has some track record and is fairly young. The draft is such a crap shoot and with some teams up against it could be a way to get a few players that could help turn the team around.

    Isn't that site just basically fans doing the writing?
  9. 2017 Expansion Draft

    I think the waiver issue and trading is if he is on the active roster for less than 30 days. I don't know if that is right, but for some reason that rattling around in my head.
  10. The Rise of Damon Severson

    I liked Severson form the start. Just like any other young D man, they just need a bunch of games before you can really see what you have. Now, I do think he needs better defensive vision in his end end, more head on a swivel type awareness. I would also like to see him to increase his physical play a tad. The coaches should let him carry the puck more or give him more of a green light to jump in. On a team that struggles offensively, you need that help. It kind of reminds me the Cup Run year, I spoke to Parise and he said that the lack of support out the back was really hurting there O. Surely, enough, a few weeks later, the D was (buzz word alert) activating more often and they became a much harder team to play against.
  11. GDT - Devils @ Oilers 1/12/17

    Not even looking at the name on the jersey on that play. To stay in the league and thrive you go 4 for 4 on most nights. I thought I read that coaches generally consider 300 games for an NHL D man to settle in.
  12. GDT - Devils @ Oilers 1/12/17

    Now Merrill was in a less than ideal situation, BUT he was playing a 2 on 1 with the puck carrier on the left wing as a left shot. He should have just played the pass and not tried to be so aggressive. Chances are the game end ends there anyway with the likes of McDavid, but that was poorly played for sure.
  13. Around the League: 2016-17 edition

    I thought it was part of the CBA- you can't sit out until the spring and jump on a team. I thought that the date to be signed to play this season was 12/31.
  14. Around the League: 2016-17 edition

    Not sure, where to post this...no chatter on Patty and his plans? He has to sign with someone by the 31st, correct?
  15. Cammalleri

    With a team lacking true shooters, Cam will stay in the lineup and Hynes will continue to trot him out there and rightfully so as long as he plays a 200 foot game. He's a streaky player, let's hope he gets it going.
