  1. GDT: Devils @ Toronto 7:30 PM

    Wow, enjoying the season so far. A few notes on last nights game... - Schneider is back to form. He was tremendous last night... again. - Severson has to stop to play these blind passes through our crease or I die with a heart attack. - Hischier looked like a rookie in the first period when the Leafs put their top players out against his line. He looked overwhelmed at times, but settled in as the game went on. A learning process. - Butcher is just fine defensively, surprisingly enough. He is very intelligent and always at the right spot. - Jesper Bratt... what can you say about him? Reminds me of Gretzky at times with his moves and his vision. Could become a real good NHLer when he continues to develop. - The fourth line is incredibly good. Not just there to not being scored against, but actually creating chances. Coleman plays like a man possessed. True Devil :-) And Gibbons, so useful.
  2. Devils acquire Marcus Johansson from Caps

    Wow, just woke up to the best news since the Palmieri trade. Well actually, I like this one even better since it's more of a sure thing. Well done Ray!
  3. Summary of and thoughts on Devils' 2017 Draft Picks

    Translated into english talvitie means "winter road", btw ;-)
  4. Devils select Nico Hischier #1 overall in 2017 Draft

    With the two guys being so close as far as skill and talent are concerned, Nico was the only choice. It is just not worth taking a player with such a history of injuries unless he is head and shoulders above the other guy. Nico was my choice from day one and I am more than happy with the pick. Now let's hope for a good defenseman today, Conor Timmins would be nice...

    About Anthony DeAngelo...
  6. The Devils protected list

    There are way more good defensemen available for Vegas than forwards. So I really doubt they take Merrill, they can easily find a dozen better defenders than him. So I believe they will take a forward from us and my guess would be Bennett.
  7. The NJ Offseason Thread

    They match, no question. But it would be worth a try. Then again, I think he loves it in Edmonton.
  8. Nico or Nolan

    Other than his shot and a nice pass here and there I have seen absolutely nothing in the Patrick highlight reels that impresses me much. Most of the time he seems to be floating around without too much interest in the game. Since we're trying to build a fast team, I don't think Patrick fits into these plans too well. Add the injuries and Nico is my clear #1 by a mile.
  9. In Russia NHL returns you. Kovalchuk staying in KHL.

    Somehow things seem to be falling into place lately... McLeod having a great season, winning the lottery and now getting something for nothing in a trade... not a bad end to a really bad season.
  10. Nico or Nolan

    Even without the injury problems I believe the Devils are more likely to draft Hischier than Patrick. After looking at every available footage of the two players, Patrick for me kinda resembles "the old NHL" whereas Hischier is the textbook "modern" lightning fast NHL player. The Devils need to become faster and Hischier is the perfect fit for this. Hischier and Hall would be just perfect together. You can always add Palmieri to the line to add some toughness, but as for speed and skill that would be just so tremendous. As for Patricks injuries, I don't think you can seriously consider drafting him at No 1 when the differences between him and Hischier in terms of what they both bring to the table are so small. Think about it: Everybody will say "I told you so" if Patrick misses his first large chunk of games, which is surely going to happen sooner rather than later. Shero is not gonna risk that, he is too smart for this. And like I said, it's not as if we're talking a Connor McDavid vs Lawson Crouse difference here.
  11. For those long-timers like myself...

    Got an autograph by Larry as well. Unfortunately in those early years without Internet and living in Europe, I never heard a single game with Larry behind the microphone. I never dreamt of one day being able to see every single Devils game... things have really changed. Just the other day I looked for info on the game I became a Devils fan. It was at MSG on January 5th 1984 and of course the Devils lost in Overtime . During the next years I travelled to the US every year and went to several Devils games on each trip. I think it took me something like three trips before I finally got to see the first win .
  12. 2016-17 Prospects Thread

    Basically Boucher was half a year older than McLeod is now when he scored 62 goals in 68 games.
  13. GDT - NYR at Devils 3-21 7pm

    Just love Miles Wood. That guy has some guts. Sure, he is very raw, but as they say in baseball... you can't teach speed. I think he will be a Devil for a very long time and we'll have lots of fun watching this guy play for us.
  14. GDT: CBJ @ Devils 1:00 PM

    Once in while Schneider could stop one. That would be real nice.
  15. GDT - Devils vs Canadiens 2/27/17

    They will never win anything with that guy in goal. These softies every night break the team. They have to work so hard to get a goal and then Schneider lets easy goals in again and again. Get rid of this guy before Wednesday and go with Kinkaid and Appleby, then sign somebody in the summer.
