  1. GDT - Devils vs Kings 12/12/17

    LGD!!! I know this is probably blasphemy given what he did to us in 2012 but I do enjoy watching Jonathan Quick do his thing, hopefully just not so much tonight.
  2. Anyone else miss the Meadowlands?

    Here’s a bad version of the image I remember. It actually would have been really cool to have a bigger version the barrel vault rink you find in so many small towns.
  3. Anyone else miss the Meadowlands?

    I thought I would have much more nostalgia for the place having been there so often for the Devils and Coleman/Petrovic era Nets as a kid but that place was run so poorly that I’ve never had any desire to go back, especially now that Zanido, or whatever it called is there.

    Wow, the melt down in Ottawa hasn’t taken long. That Duchene-Turris trade looks worse every day, especially since they traded their 1st round pick to the Avalanche. I know it’s top 10 protected this year but I can’t imagine that next years pick would be anything less than top 10 if the Sens unload EK. Im assuming any type of competitive offer from NJ would have to include Bratt and our 1st round pick +.
  5. Pavel Zacha

    Of his various development warts, I really don’t remember flubbing prime scoring chances as an issue with Zacha like it might be with a guy like Zajac. If anything, PZ usually seems to ring his chances off the post. For that reason, for the time being i’m happy to chalk the flubs up to some combination of rust and holding the stick too tight. I think everyone’s issue has been his timid play and lack of involvement and I think that was much, much better last night. If he continues that play you’ll see a lot more points come. Also, I don’t think you’re giving him enough credit on that assist. He settled the puck and moved the launch point pretty quickly which is what allowed that pass to get though. I don’t think there are too many guys on the roster other than the top line that would have made that.

    Zacha in for Stafford tonight. 2C. Zajac dropped to 3rd line
  7. 2017-2018 Prospects Thread

    For those of you that like such things, NHL Network is showing a junior game between Barrie and Oshawa starting right now. Barrie has the Russian kid that’s supposed to go #2 in the upcoming draft. Svechnikov (sp?) its also the teddy bear toss game which is always cool if you’ve never seen it. All fans bring a bear to the game and throw it on the ice after 1st goal by the home team. They get collected and go to charity.

    The Senators swapping Turris for an "upgrade" to Duchene looks worse and worse every day. Turris is killing it in Nashville and Ottawa seems to have taken a nose-dive.
  9. Pavel Zacha

    I think it's time to switch him to the wing and just let him do his thing. He almost seems paralyzed out there overthinking the play when he's at C. He looked great in the 1 period he got on wing with Hall and Hischier at the end of the Blues game last week. That being said, it's way to early to give up on a guy that was considered somewhat of a project when we drafted him. Everyone knew, or at least should have known, there was a little more development time involved in this one.
  10. GDT: 11/20/17 NJ Devils @ Minnesota

    Excited to see Zacha in the top 6 on wing. The points started coming for him last year once he moved to the wing. No excuses now. He's got Zajac handling the center responsibilities and he's playing with good players.

    Great site, thanks for keeping it going. Just sent through paypal.
  12. GDT: Devils @ Toronto 7pm Msg Return of the Zajac

    With Zajac back I really hope they switch Zacha over to wing and give him a run there. I think that's when his season turned around last year. The added responsibilities of center seem to paralyze him a little, which is fine, he's 20. Even long term, there's nothing wrong with him becoming a permanent power forward on the wing.
  13. GDT: 11/7/17 Blues @ NJ Devils

    ...or maybe just try him at wing where he doesn't have as much responsibility.
  14. Defensive help

    I'm not saying McLeod doesn't have a good amount of value, just that I would easily give up that package for a D-man of OEL's caliber. OEL is an established #1D and still young enough that he fits into a core where Taylor Hall is a primary piece. Also, if OEL hits the market, I imagine there will be a pretty big bidding war given how few top young d ever become available.
  15. Defensive help

    To me he looks bogged down by the responsibilities of being a center, like he's over thinking and making the safe play too often. As soon as Zajac comes back, I want to see him moved to wing where I think he will be much more productive once freed up from the additional responsibilities of being a center. That's when the points started coming last year.
