  1. Rumor: Travis Zajac being shopped to Toronto

    Calm day...why not dream ? Tom Gulliti:It's taken me some time to check off everyone on the ice for Devils' practice and Travis Zajac is missing. https://twitter.com/TGfireandice/status/654335175837532160
  2. RAY SHERO = NEW GM. Coach decision is Shero's.

    Exactly why I have not been happy of Lou's work lately, but at the same time dont and cant just give him the "full blame bomb". Parise not being signed because of Ilya's money was a huge blow, but to then lose Ilya too...how was it ever going to be possible to just replace these guys ? Then again, that Ilya contract might be argued by some as being Lou's work and that his lack of vision lead to Parise leaving, but to be honest, I think Vanderbeek wanted a superstar and some pressure was applied on Lou to go and get the guy and even more to sign him at whatever's cost.
  3. Devils Trade Deadline Thread

    Lou: Dont worry about my fifth !
  4. Devils Trade Deadline Thread

    I dont understand how some of you guys are talking about Kessel. I dont know if you heard, but the guy is a minus 100 when it comes to attitude and this is true regardless of the situation in Toronto. This is a guy who tells the reporters " I really dont care" when asked about the team. Do you picture Lou even thinking of him ? We are talking about the guy that chooses YOUR number ! That inspects your face for facial hair ! Lou would've killed Kessel in his sleep and status Quoed the judge through his trial.
  5. Nice article on Devils' tactics

    Nice article. ''Trying to keep games closeseems kinda smart when you go 1-8in two-goal games (a .111 winning percentage,worst in hockey).'' Especially when you cant win a single shootout
  6. Trade:Kesler to Anaheim

    This is why I think that the past couple of years have been abysmal by Lou in term of fighting and getting pieces to strengthen the team (except for the Shneider trade). Every year good players like Kesler get traded and every time we are amazed at how much the price the receiving team paid was low. Every year we sit behind our computers and each trade proposal or trade ideas thread gets the same treatment....''we don't have anyone to trade for this or that guy''. We have the pieces to go and steal players like Kesler and others, but IMO Lou is just not as good as he used to be. If Kesler goes for this, then why would the players proposed in some of the threads on the forum dont go for similar pieces and even less considering most of the time we are talking about less talented players than Kessler. I know some people will say he was asking for a trade and probably had his preferences in terms of the teams he would accept to be traded to, but come on...were simply never going to win when we sit back every summer watching the show and finally end up adding a couple of Pilkarainens and a Trent Hunter to the team.
  7. Brodeur Appreciation Thread

    How can you make a BrodUer appreciation thread ????
  8. I'm just going to come out and say it.

    The problem as I see it. 50% The management (Lou) This team roster is sh!tty and our best area (defense IMO) is average too what you can see on good teams in this league. The contracts given to some players are dumb and have been pretty obviously so from the moment they were signed. You can add to this the acceptance of average results or mediocrity as Brodeur would say. While this roster is no gold mine, there seem to be no real moves in the right direction (apart from Schneider) being made or at least tried. We have seen in the last couple of seasons teams with ridiculous rosters come up with deals that significantly improved their rosters, but we seem to be always happy to say '' no we don't have the pieces to trade for this or that guy''. Alex Hemsky was acquired for a 3rd and 5th round pick and while he may not be a savior for the Senator, I think he is much better than 50% of the garbage we are dressing every night on our top 2 lines. 30% or maybe less The coaching. While he have been good for us in the Stanley cup run. He is stubborn and is willing to repeat the same mistakes over and over again thinking that something is going to magically change. Gelina is 3rd in terms of points among rookie Defense-men, with 15 games less than the 2 guys ahead of him. Why do you have to put him in and out of the lineup so many times ? Its either you play the guy or put him back in the AHL. Apart from stupid decisions like this one and playing Brodeur so much I can't really say anything more than that since the guy has been given sh!t to work with. 20% The players themselves who are also accepting this sh!t and seem to disappear every fvcking night. How many times did we blow a fvcking lead this season ? Do you need fvcking coaching to keep a lead ? Total lack of effort and personality by most of the roster. Not a single time team stood up and managed to win a shootout. A single shootout ! Too much !!! What kind of locker room is this sh!t ?
  9. GDT: Toronto @ Devils 7:00 PM

    Woah wtf is happening ? We are wining with 8 minutes to go ? Unacceptable, let them score a couple of goals and loose this one in Shootout. Never break good habits !
  10. [Official] Damien Brunner signed to multi-year deal

    prediction: We will end up signing nobody and will start the season with this roster
  11. Kovalchuk Gone, What moves do we make now?

    What can Lou do about all this ? I mean I can't really ask too much from him. What are you supposed to do when a guy you signed to a 15 years contract walks after 2 years ? We lost Parise because of that Moron (Ilya) and now we are left with no top players. The best forward we got is Patrick Elias. Unless the teams pulls out a rabbit and play a fantastic team play with some of the young players panning out (fantastic too) we are going to miss the playoffs for a 2nd years in a row and draft nobody at all.
  12. GDT Ottawa Senators vs New Jersey Devils

    They can try all they want, the lack of quality players on attack is just not going to spare them. Neither bernier,gionta,carter,dagostini,barch,josefson,sullivan or poni are going to make the work that top 6 forwards are supposed to do, because they are not.
  13. GDT Ottawa Senators vs New Jersey Devils

    Lamoreillo and his 8 defensemen since thebeginningof the season and lack of moves forany kindof decent top 6 forwards can go fvck himself.

    Please score....please score boys !

    Ourforecheckonly works when the Defense pinches. We need the D to be implicated in the forecheck.
