  1. 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs thread

    gionta and zubrus don't. brunner - i wouldn't call him a vet really. ryder was given a longer leash than he deserved before he was finally yanked.
  2. 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs thread

    my only real gripe w/ deboer was how he handled larsson and gave vets a ridiculously long leash. but the team he was given was on lou, plain and simple.

    Should be ready for camp but will probably delay and give a kid a chance at making the team
  4. Albany Devils Thread - 2015-16 Edition

    oh well - it was fun. my 9 year old daughter was distraught over this and just realized what and who the albany devils were last week. i both love this and hate it at the same time. like i'm so proud that she cares and so pissed at myself that i have her caring this much. ah parenthood.

    Finally - reason. I was waiting for this and thought i was the only sane person here.

    doesn't matter who's first. honestly, there is only one team in professional sports that won't touch the uniform or stadium naming rights and it's the Yankees. that they don't is actually part of their brand (no name on uniform, no 3rd uniforms). They were offered $1B from Emirates to name rename Yankee Stadium to Emirates Stadium and said no. everyone will do it if it's part of the league direction.

    you're kidding right? Like if the Devils sold out every game and every spectator bought $50 of food at every game and $200 of merchandise at every game, Harris & Blitzer would say, "yeah, we're good."?
  8. The Offseason Plan™

    the devils do go BPA almost always - josh jacobs is a great example.
  9. The Offseason Plan™

    pretty bleak that it's pretty much tank or bust in your eyes for the devils. the hope is that maybe a decent AHL playoff for severson clicks something for him. zacha needs to hit the ground running next year.
  10. Possible "Palmieri-esque" trades for the offseason

    I think TB will be fine because I think they lose stamkos. toronto, w/ matthews in tow, is now an attractive option for stamkos if he wants to go home. you know they'll throw money at him. so will detroit (among others). I don't think yzerman wants to give him the 8/80 he's looking for. i think yzerman would give him 8/70. well, there are teams out there that will give him 7/70 so i think he leaves. khokhlachev has been talked about for years and boston hasn't made that move. i like the idea but it seems like boston just keeps dragging their feet there. silfverberg - i know anaheim is intent on making changes - i'm not sure they make that move (especially with the devils again) i did mention tanner pearson in the other thread as a similar type target.
  11. Devils looking to add offense in the offseason

    don't get me wrong - conte hasn't drafted great the last couple of years. but there are guys in the pipeline that were still their picks so maybe they can raise their final years if some of these guys pan out.
  12. Devils looking to add offense in the offseason

    i wonder if shero can target tanner pearson as this year's palmieri type trade. LA will be big time up against the cap and pearson's going to be an RFA that needs a raise. They already are going to have to REALLY take care of tiffoli and look to be trying to sign lucic so pearson is one of those young guys that might have to deal before he gets too expensive.
  13. Albany Devils Thread - 2015-16 Edition

    or skate the guys that just showed up and have them win the game for you (lappin, zacha, boucher, sislo, blandisi.
  14. Devils looking to add offense in the offseason

    Assuming no outside UFAs and what should happen letting people go cammalleri-zajac-palmieri boucher-henrique-DSP blandisi-zacha-wood kalinin-josefson-pietila/farnham this is not an acceptable F lineup for a team looking to do anything other than get the 1st pick in the draft so it's clearly not what it's going to be. this lineup certainly has room for elias in it. but again, this will not be the lineup the devils bring to camp.

    speers and white apparently got ATO's w/ Albany. Don't know if that's a precursor to a true contract or not:
