    Devils..........Devils..........Devils............Devils<br><br>Other than that, the Mets and Giants are my favorite teams in other sports....
  1. Nico or Nolan

    Nolan Patrick. He's a center with size, very good shot, fluid skater too. Plays two ways. Was fairly dominant last year. If he stayed healthy this year, he would have been clear cut first pick. Hischier looks like he's got ability but I'm not sure I see a high ceiling with him. I also am wary of guys from the Q. i think as long as we can squeeze a good 3-4 yrs out of Zajac he can be a terrific mentor to both McLeod and Patrick. Centers that are good don't grow on trees. Shero followed that blueprint in PITT. He then went and found complements on the wings. And then drafted a lot of the guys who helped them retool their wings on the top 3 lines to help win that second Cup last year.
  2. In Russia NHL returns you. Kovalchuk staying in KHL.

    Hes not coming back to the Devils. If they can get a pick for his rights I'm all for it. I don't see any way Shero brings him in here. I think this is a leverage for a final big payday in the KHL. If he wants to come back to NHL sincerely, it's to win a Cup and he's not getting that here in the next couple seasons.
  3. The NJ Offseason Thread

    Agree almost entirely with Sundstrom on the facet of it all and the chore for Shero. Top pairing of defense has to be figured out. Lovejoy is a 3rd pair who played top pairing minutes and situations. Greene is on the decline, needs to be sheltered more and should no longer see any serious PP time. Shattenkirk and a LD would do wonders for this team. In terms of F, they ideally need two replacement forwards for the Top 9. I think they can fill the 4th line with Noesen, Wood, and maybe a Speers or a veteran C. But they need another winger who can skate and shoot.
  4. 2017 NHL Trade Deadline Thread

    Sheri isn't trading the pick for a pipe dream sign and trade. It's going to be a Top 8 pick. Any talk otherwise is ludicrous.
  5. GDT Home Open Jamboree - Ducks @ Devils, 7 PM, MSG+/WFAN

    Pretty solid game by a lot of people. Quincey and Auvitu were real solid. Hall did what we need him to do. Use speed, forecheck, make plays, score. Schneider was his dependable self. Zajac and Henrique I thought got a little hapless and sloppy a few times in the offensive zone but still played relatively well. Fiddler has impressed me a great deal in just a short while. Just a solid smart veteran who gives the bottom line some smarts and reliability and fundamental play on the PK.
  6. GDT Season Opener- Devils @ FLA 7:30 PM

    Ok. I see that. I would suppose Bennett will see some time on the 1st and 3rd lines a bit. Not sure DSP is a guy I see holding onto that first line role.
  7. GDT Season Opener- Devils @ FLA 7:30 PM

    I don't see Beau Bennett in the projection. I don't see him a healthy scratch. He'll play over Speers/Wood.
  8. Kalinin back on a one year deal

    Can't complain. Big guy who can skate okay. He'll play on the 4th and provide some ability along the boards on that line. Him, Fiddler, and I guess Josefson will be our 4th line. All three can play C and take face offs too.
  9. Free Agent Frenzy - 2016

    Most of these guys already know where they are going. With the week for visits and discussion, most of the free agents will be off the board by tomorrow. Florida surprises me with Okposo.
  10. Free Agent Frenzy - 2016

    I love this new Bruins regime. People knock Chiarelli for some of his trades in Boston but he was GM when they won the Cup and came close to a 2nd. Sweeney and Neely and company seem to try a rebuild but the blueprint to me looks confusing like they think it's the 90s. I think we will see a lot of the signings today. Guys have had quite a few days to discuss interest and offer of terms. Should be fast and furious through the afternoon. No question the big forward dominoes need to fall but I think we will see a few more trades too.
  11. Adam Larsson traded to EDM for Taylor Hall

    Oilers needed a shutdown D badly. They needed Larsson bigtime. He will make them a better team even if in a vacuum he might not be the Lidstrom people thought he would. Hall is talented but does have some questions himself on maturity. But on talent and skills he will make the Devils dangerous 5v5 and on the PP. And he's 24. And he and Henrique are friends and have chemistry. Good feelings all around.
  12. 2016 Draft

    I really think Keller doesn't get past 9. He may even go Top 8. I wouldn't get my hopes up. I'm interested to see if Shero pulls off a trade tonight back into Round 1 or for a player.
  13. Around the League 15-16 Edition

    Which gives him leverage to choose a suitor. I don't see Shatt wanting to go to Edmonton. I've heard he'd prefer East Coast either Bruins, Rangers, Wings perhaps.
  14. Around the League 15-16 Edition

    Shattenkirk is a one yr deal guy right now and strong rumors he intends to tear UFA unless he gets a big deal. Not sure that's a move for Chiarelli to make.
  15. Devils looking to add offense in the offseason

    Agreed. I'd like to see Shero inquire if he's available though.
