  1. 2016 NHL Trade Deadline Thread

    There's been rumors Shero likes Eberle even going back years when Shero was GM of the Pens. I wouldn't give up anything of immediate value for Yakupov. He's perilously close to being a total bust and is a huge gamble. I think we definitely deal Stempniak and it's probably a toss up between whether Schlemko or Gelinas gets moved. As for a third move I think it would have to be a really good deal and getting a forward we could build with for five years forward. Most likely any exciting moves with our forward situation will be in the offseason.

    You're not getting Drouin for a Stempniak rental. Come on folks. Stempniak is a guy who was on the verge of not having a job a few months ago. He's proven he can still play but if we are lucky we get a 2nd rounder for him and maybe a B prospect if there's teams willing to gamble and bid. He's a guy who has put up numbers playing key minutes with other playmakers. On a playoff team he is at most a 3rd liner and I don't see him continuing this kind of production there. He's a depth addition. Ladd is a prime addition and a big go for it move for the Blackhawks.

    It was Verbeek,. who has a rich history of putting in time as a talent evaluator and dealing with player personnel. If TB wanted to send a game scout or advance scout they would have sent somebody else. Not that I think we are getting Drouin, but it potentially validates Friedman's mention that we are a dark horse in the Drouin conversations.
  4. GDT Ducks at Devils 12-19 7pm

    Elias is on his retirement tour. Anyone expecting anything out of him this year wasn't thinking clearly. Come on now. The team just isn't built well enough and deep enough at forward. We knew that coming in this year and we're seeing it show up a bit more now. They will still give some good games the rest of the year but I do think some stretches like this are going to be the norm. People need to let Shero get another offseason to shed some of the remaining age (Elias, Ruutu) with younger skill forwards and upgrade the low level line depth (Tootoo, Gionta).
  5. GDT: Columbus Blue Jackets Vs New Jersey Devils

    Severson continues to show a little too much recklessness with the puck and poor situational awareness. Terrible giveaway to lead to the Moore penalty.
  6. No way would I take Atkinson for either Larsson or Severson. Blue Jackets are desperate for a quality defenseman that's for sure. I'd be open to dealing Severson but only for a top young forward that has a better all around game than Atkinson. Atkinson does fit the profile of what I believe Shero is looking to build up in his forwards corps in terms of more speed, playmaking.
  7. GDT Devils at Rangers 1pm

    Stempniak and Tlusty look like bargains. God forbid where the offense would be without them. Palmieri looks really off so far but it is early and he's probably adjusting a bit still. Severson is really not setting the world on fire either. Lots of poor reads and decisions so far.

    Stempniak with the OT game winner.
  9. GDT: Nashville Predators @ NJ Devils 7pm

    A lot of the teams will have issues drawing well the first few weeks to the month or so of the season. We talk about this every year. There's reasons in terms of other entertainment options, seasonal considerations, and of course the economics. Even in the big markets there's often times a decent amount of empty seats for weekday games against marginal opponents or non rivals.
  10. GDT: Nashville Predators @ NJ Devils 7pm

    Oh well. Didn't play awful but again this is a team with a lack of high end talent at forward and depth issues still. Gonna be a long season but we all knew that.
  11. GDT: Devils @ Washington - 7:00 PM

    Tlusty has looked really solid up the wing along the boards and in the offensive zone. It's early but he looks like a potential bright spot and if he holds up I hope Shero and Co. look at keeping him for a few years further.
  12. GDT: Devils @ Washington - 7:00 PM

    Wow. That was one of the worst PPs I have ever seen. Every Devil on the ice for that looked terrible.
  13. GDT: Winnipeg @ Devils 7:00 PM

    Ok. He's still here anyway and that's a problem too. No kidding there's huge problems elsewhere on the lines. I'm paying good money to see this team and I'm tired of them throwing the little scrub on the ice. I think we can keep complaining as fans if we want to being subjected to subpar rosters for a good three years in a row now.
  14. GDT: Winnipeg @ Devils 7:00 PM

    Gionta absolutely isn't NHL caliber anymore. They might give him a few more games but they need to jettison him when Elias gets back and cycle in the younger forwards for better looks. Offense is going to be a problem again this year. Jets look like a solid team to me and if their goaltending holds up could be a dark horse playoff contender this year.
  15. GDT: Winnipeg @ Devils 7:00 PM

    Lots of penalties still and the offense looks to lack chemistry up front.
