  1. The Offseason Plan™

    I'll take a page out of Mike Brown's book and say we need a lot more offense from the blue line next year. Maybe we should go for Yandle this summer. I think this AHL playoff run is good for Severson and hopefully his offense returns next year.

    Damian Cox has us taking Logan Brown. Craig Button has us taking Clayton Keller. Button's mocks usually get a lot of sh!t but last year he actually did pretty well. I hope he's right this time too.

    Kind of off topic but should we be expecting a contract extension for Palmieri soon? IMO that should be pretty high on the list of things Shero has to do and not much else is going on right now. I mean I know we have all summer here but Lou already locked up Kadri and Reilly.

    Fair enough I suppose. Even if he turns into a garbage goal scorer, though, I'll take it. We need those kinds of goals desperately. Smith-Pelley has been a pretty good garbage man so far but the more the merrier.
  5. Devils looking to add offense in the offseason

    We got Smith-Pelley out of it so it had a happy ending. Even if he never scores a goal for NJ again he did more than Matteau did as a Devil. I was very upset that Lou kept the pick instead of forfeiting it but we wound up with a pretty good player out of it.

    I'm finding it hard not to be excited about this guy. Is it the league he plays in that has people skeptical? Isn't that the same league Barzal plays in?

    Barrie got swept. Quenneville with another 2 goal night last night and Brandon Wheat moves onto the ECF.
  8. Devils looking to add offense in the offseason

    I wonder if there's something that could be done around Zajac and JVR. Very unlikely as I don't think Lou would want to ever trade with us as a Maple Leaf. We'd probably have to add something significant and I don't think TO even really has a need with Kadri and Bozak already being there and they're probably about to add either Stamkos or Matthews. Wishful thinking I guess. Paying a 3C 5.75 per just seems a little high.
  9. Devils looking to add offense in the offseason

    I've always said Zajac is the perfect checking line center, but I guess those don't really exist anymore. His defense is on par with Madden and Holik IMO but his offense greatly relies on his linemates. I don't want him as a 1C and I prefer Henrique as our 2C but calling him a 3C is kind of wrong too. Just a weird suituation with him. He's definitely still one of our most valuable players and I'm very happy he's a Devil.
  10. Devils looking to add offense in the offseason

    Dan Rosen commented on the Devils future on Nothing ground breaking really... Thoughts on the job Ray Shero and John Hynes did in year one with the New Jersey Devils? What are you looking for this offseason? Are Kyle Okposo and Mikkel Boedker fits? -- @dsf_9d Dan Rosen:Devils' fans should be happy with the direction the team appears headed. Shero is a smart, savvy, active GM. He's not afraid to pull the trigger on a trade. I think he'll be active this summer to improve the roster. They need a No. 1 line, or at the very least a No. 1 center. It's hard to get one, but that's where they have to start. Getting Okposo and/or Boedker would be nice, but the Devils need to build depth down the middle.Adam Henriqueis a solid No. 2 center. At this point,Travis Zajaccould be one of the best No. 3 centers in the League. Neither is a No. 1. Devils' fans should be thrilled with Hynes too. I think he got the most he could out of a team that clearly isn't built to win right now.Cory Schneider, as good as he is, helps too. There's going to be some good hockey coming to New Jersey soon enough.
  11. Albany Devils Thread - 2015-16 Edition

    Lost last night but Severson got another assist. Hopefully this playoff run brings his confidence back. And so far it looks like it has. I didn't realize the AHL playoffs were best of 5 in round 1.
  12. 2016 Draft

    At this point, and I'm only going off of what other people are saying, I really want Keller to fall to us. He's a little smaller but he sounds like he's going to be the real deal.
  13. Albany Devils Thread - 2015-16 Edition

    Damn Severson dropped that dude!
  14. Devils looking to add offense in the offseason

    I mean I think itshould definitely get us Yakupov at this point, probably Hoffman, and maybe Eberle orNichushkin. Just my opinion. Might have to add something like Merrill or a 3rd to get the latter.
  15. Devils looking to add offense in the offseason

    I think there could be a lot of young offensive talent available this offseason, the price is probably just way to high for most of them (in our case). Yakupov, RNH, Duchene, Nichushkin, Drouin, Eberle, and Hoffman could all be available for trade. I think Yak is the only one we could reasonably afford unless we package our 1st with Severson but even that probably isn't enough to get someone like Duchene. And beyond that it's not worth trading Severson or the 1st.
