  1. The NJ Offseason Thread

    Admittedly, this is an angle I did not consider. In terms of dealing with the various skill levels, I wonder if it could be cleared up by mandating contracts signing these players count against the salary cap regardless of players assignment of NHL/AHL/ECHL to deter teams from from the above. On the other hand, I can already see how this might have an opposite effect as players like Hoeffel would naturally need more minor league seasoning and this would probably deter from them being offered a contract in the first place, penalizing the player. I might not have the best solutions for this issue, but I think it's in the best interests of the game to have these discussions.
  2. The NJ Offseason Thread

    I understand what you are getting at with the hypothetical Hoeffel scenario but you've neglected the underlined word, in want. If the Devils showed interest in signing Kerfoot, offered a standard ELC, I don't think it's right to enable a player to walk out on the investment without compensation. If drafting team did not offer an ELC, then obviously no compensation. Why should these graduates be given more freedom than a restricted free agent? I think it would be a better system for the team drafting the said player having the ability to match the contract if he signs elsewhere.
  3. The NJ Offseason Thread

    They need to fix this loophole and fast. It's utterly ridiculous for a player who an organization has invested resources and wants to retain have the ability to walk away without compensation. Especially when all of these guys are ending up bailing out an organization that hasn't drafted for sh!t the last 5 years. Fvcking entitled snakes.
  4. Around the League: 2016-17 edition

    Really thought Loktionov was going to be a mainstay here. Strange tenure.
  5. 2017-18 Potential Lines

    Agree 100% about Wood. He's perfect for the neo-enforcer role; a guy who isnt a heavyweight but can throw the body and tussle when necessary in addition to making meaningful contributions on the ice.
  6. 2017-18 Potential Lines

    Damn, missing on Shattenkirk stings. Lots of forwards, didn't even have to mention Quennville or Wood. What kind of value would Henrique and a 2nd have around the league? Fowler, Trouba, top flight D? Sucks because Henrique shores up that second line. Perhaps Jagr on a 1 year band aid if they move Henrique.
  7. Trade Schneider

    Perhaps might've been the worst timing in the world, trade broke minutes after I bumped this
  8. Devils acquire Marcus Johansson from Caps

    Depends on the path they take to develop him. Hockey is "simpler" with less responsibilities breaking in as a wing compared to center. I had a coach who always used to say centers play chess while wingers play checkers. They can throw him to the wolves at center but I'm not sure that is the best idea with going in as a predominately young team.
  9. Devils acquire Marcus Johansson from Caps

    Love it
  10. Trade Schneider

  11. Cammalleri and DSP Bought Out

    I like it. DSP had no chance to be a productive player next year. Camo might've bounced back and scored 20, but I like Shero going all out. Clearing the dead weight for young guns.
  12. HHOF Class of 2017

    Always respected Kariya. His HOF 'signature moment' was definitely the "Off the floor, on the board!" goal in 2003. Even coming against us, can't help but respect that. Now, had we dropped that series I'm sure it would be one of the most devastating moments in franchise history. Thank God we took care of business. I enjoy looking back being able to appreciate that moment and respect it as a great contribution to the history of the game, all the while not breaking out into a cold sweat knowing we finished the job.
  13. Devils select Nico Hischier #1 overall in 2017 Draft

    Keep dumping on the Shore as it's one of, if not, the only Devils stronghold in the state. When the Devils are decent, the boardwalks are PACKED with Devils stuff outnumbering everyone else.
  14. Summary of and thoughts on Devils' 2017 Draft Picks

    No one scouts like Castron, finds late round value like Castron!
  15. GDT: 6/23 and 6/24- NHL Draft

    Oddly feel like this is anti climatic opposed to the last few years. Praying and hoping certain guys would be slipping through the cracks to our spot. None of that this year. Would like to see us trade back into the first round.
