  1. New Jersey Devils' Lineup/Roster Thread 2015-16

    I'll just add that I hate it when words are spelled out on jerseys so I'd be against one that said Devils or New Jersey on them. I also think out current logo is perfect so if there is a new jersey in our future I hope it's just a minor tweak of the current logo (as many have already said). I'm not really a fan of the red and greens even though they are part of our history. Maybe just add some small green piping to the red and blacks somehow.   Black shoulders with small green piping (dark or forest green) and a red base. Same logo. Or opposite with Red shoulders with small green piping and a black base.

    I hope you're right about Zacha. His disciplinary problems make me think he just needs to mature a little more but hopefully he has a good summer (of maturing). I was hoping Jacobs was going to be close to what Severon is. Maybe he'll be a late bloomer. I thought he was doing ok in Sarnia.  I do think Blandisi is a full time nhler next year. If not the rest of this year.

    Unfortunately I think next season will be more of the same for us unless Shero can pull off another Palmieri type trade or two. I don't see Zacha being ready next year. I do think we're going to be picking around 5-10 again but I doubt the player we select will be NHL ready either.  I might be wrong here but I think Santini said he was going to continue playing at BC next season too. I might be getting him mixed up with Wood though. Jacobs might be AHL ready. Point is we won't be able to move anyone significant on defense (Severson) for a forward of equal skill until we know how Jacobs or Santini look at the NHL level. Not saying we should move Severson but I think eventually we're going to have to think about shipping someone out on defense for some forward help. I'm completely against trading Larsson so IMO Severson is the next best asset we have on defense (at this point), Greene just isn't an option although I'd be willing to be he could net us a decent return.    So we drop some dead weight next year in Ruutu, Gio, Tootoo, and Elias (hopefully he just retires), but we really don't have anything significant to replace them with. 
  4. Devils vs Wild, 8pm NBCSN

    So if I'm not mistaken, this was the only game that will be blacked out for us (Game Center) all season. 
  5. New Jersey Devils' Lineup/Roster Thread 2015-16

    Josefson to IR and we signed Blackwood to a 3 year entry level contract. Timing seems kind of odd to me on the Blackwood contract. Do players sign entry level contracts mid season often?

    Sucks that we're so low on assets. They say it's almost impossible to find a 1c outside of drafting one yet it seems there might be 2 of them currently available with RNH and Ryan Johnassen. Would anyone here package Severson for one of these guys? I still think Seversons potential is sky high so I'm not so sure I would at least until we see what Jacobs is gonna be.

    He's the yang to Mike Brown's yin. I like Mike's positivity though. His posts are like a lesson in Buddhism.

    I like some edge too, a la Claude Lemieux or even Bobby Farnham. Just as long as we don't wind up with Marty Mcsorley on our hands.  Also like Tri pointed out we can't have them constantly taking stupid penalties when they're with the big club. I don't mind a slip up here and there but I seem to hear a lot about Zacha's penalties. They're still young though and I say this as a 40 year old whose has a pretty bad temper over the years.
  9. 15-16 WJC Thread

    Nice. I heard Zacha shoved a linesman during the Canada game. Both Blackwood and Zacha seem like A level prospects but both have some temper issues they need to sort out.    I remember when Merrill was having issues in college Lou paid him a visit. Maybe Shero will have a talk with these guys.

    See what I'm saying about Andy Greene though? He makes his pairing look good. I don't think that's the case with Larsson though, at least I hope not.
  11. 2015–16 Prospect Thread

      Nice. His ability to pick those corners is awesome. Plus I've never seen Jacobs play before and he had a couple of nice passes in there. 
  12. Around the League 15-16 Edition

    Honestly I was just hoping for a new style and system and that's exactly what we got. I actually expected us to be a lot worse before the season started but I was more excited to watch this team than most of the teams put together in the past few years. So really I might not be the best person to ask because I just wanted change.
  13. Around the League 15-16 Edition

      I can understand people who are still loyal to Lou but how anyone can dislike what Shero has done so far is beyond me. This team is playing way better than anyone else could have predicted.

    Here's the gif. Stupid but not as bad as I thought it would be.
  15. I think the military style worked well in pro sports for a long time but I think things are just different now. It should still be applied to college sports IMO but no pro sports team really uses that philosophy anymore. To be honest I'd say Lou's Devils were one of the, if not the, last pro sports teams to be so militaristic. Could be wrong but I can't think of any pro sports team, in North America at least, that was as strict as Lou.
