  1. Around the League 15-16 Edition

    Everyones trying to sign Shipachyov & Dadonov. I think they played (KHL) on same line, maybe trying to go as a package like Parise/Suter? Dadonov played for Panthers a couple years ago, didn't pan out I'm guessing. Wonder also if they'd prefer to play w/ countrymen (Capitols) if there was cap room? Wonder if Shero has spoken to either or both.
  2. League sets expansion draft rules

    Bettman said in an interview earlier that the devaluated $$ in Ca. cost NHL 200 million. And the cap will not be rising. So tighten your belts GM's!

    Not sure who made out in this deal Gudbranson is huge & plays that way. McCann (when they played Devils) was small & easily knocked off the puck. New GM in Fla isn't wasting any time. They fired madden. I'm wondering if he'll turn up in college hockey?

    I'm happy for Deboer. Well deserved.
  5. 2016 Draft

    I want for us to pick a fw, but won't be shocked if we took a D.man The consensus out there is top 3 D men are good, but there's no Drew Doughtie in the lot. regardless, we'll get a decent pick. Maybe Jason Macissac could clarify, is BCHL on same level as dub? Is it a tier 2? Jost is a good player in a lesser league? But then again Turris came from Tier 2 I believe.

    Good write up
  7. 2016 Draft

    Big discussion on XM yesterday on where 1st D man would be picked. Most suggesting Edm. trade 4th to someone else in 9-13 range for competent D men. Or pull a Garth Snow & land a Leddy/Boychuk "deal" if one is out there.. But they were saying there may not be a D man taken before 8 or 9th that fw's have a better shot. Edm is dealing from position of strength. They can dangle 4-5 guys out there, and get a good return.
  8. Devils looking to add offense in the offseason

    I think he'll be an Henrique 2.0, which is fine by me. decent hands & skating ability.
  9. 2015–16 Prospect Thread

    Listening to a story on XM hockey this morning about the "battle the Oilers had selecting Yakupov. There was meeting in the morning (Friday) w/ all scouts. there was a vote and it was 9-2 in favor of D-Murray. mac-T i think overturned everyone. Steve Kouleous (host) said they'll (Oilers) be lucky to get a 3rd/4th liner for Yak now. This was a true story from a guest that was there. (about how Yak was 1st overall) I'd take a flyer on this guy for a 3rd. Maybe a change of scene would do him good Nail, New jersey & you, perfect together

    Don't be shocked Murray's back in tomorrow night. The Flower had a lot of rust on him. I love the "back & forth" with Hitch & Deboer. "Hitch will tell you they won the the "adjustments" he made! Tell him Pete! Sharks will be back tonight.
  11. Albany Devils Thread - 2015-16 Edition

    All along I thought after Isles farm moved back into "renovated" Nassau Colleseum, the Devs were moving to Bridgeport behind the Isles. Wonder why they signed a deal for 3 more years.

    Well, we didn't lose anything to get him. Cest l' Vie! Isn't Jokerit in KHL? Those plane rides will be epic. He'll wish he was riding busses in No. NY/New England
  13. Devils looking to add offense in the offseason

    Ok then, take Blackwood. Would he fetch much on the trade market? He's leaving as best goalie in OHL. Not suggesting Devils would part with him. But, I'll bet there's a few teams that would be very interested in him that know they have a lack of depth in goal. He hasn't played an NHL game yet. Not sure I agree on Wedge/Blockade. They building their resume's. Many teams "settle on" Ray Emory's of the world. Is Eddie Lack THAT good? I hope neither are going anywhere until Exp. draft.
  14. World Championship 2016

    I watched it on CSN 576 (Fios). Ryan Ellis scored early in 3rd. walked in on week side top of FO circle, beat Blockade. Canada only managed 1 SOG after that. U.S came close many times to tying it but Talbot was lucky as hell. Kinkaid was very good. Wood looked pretty good for what he is (fore-checker) going to net. Santini looked OK made some good passes up. Seemed like he couldn't wait to get rid of it. Warsofsky scored an awesome goal and was very good In this tournament PP guy sees the ice so well. Andy Green 2.0. USA came very close to tying it up. Oh well they put a scare in those Canadiens.
  15. World Championship 2016

    Last year Shero went to the worlds and came home with Kalinen. (someone I hope he resigns). Wonder if he'll bring someone else back this year?
