  1. Devils aquire Sami Vatanen for Henrique + Blandisi + '18 3rd

    Okay. So I've kind of came up with my reasons why I wouldn't have moved Henrique. I was kind of bummed out when I found out about this trade so I wanted to kind of think on it some more and after doing that I wanted to share my thoughts. As a sidebar, I'm sure Vatanen will be great and he's impressed so far. My two issues with the moving of Henrique are 1) He was really a core player on this team and the team was kind of building around him. I don't generally think that you're successful when you start moving these players out when you are doing well. I say core player because Henrique was drafted and developed by the team and was a leader on and off the ice. If the argument is that we have a newer, younger core, that's fine and I'm willing to concede. 2) Why move Larsson if we are just going to acquire another righty in Vatanen? It seems to be trading for trading sake at this point. Just trading to shake things up. I think a little more loyalty was owed to Henrique (and I'm saying that after the Larsson trade) and Shero even admitted (iirc) that it was one of the hardest talks he ever had to have with a player. Maybe I've been brainwashed into thinking that we need a good balance of lefties and righties on defense. Are Adam Larsson and Sami Vatenen such drastically different defensemen that this was required? I suggested Alex Gogligoski, do you think he would have been a cheaper addition? To conclude this, I'm not juvenile and do understand trades are a part of the business and a part of the game. I'm not upset with Shero at all and can't be upset with how good the team has been up to this point, I'm just curious where the thought process is coming from in management and if it's going to continue.
  2. Defensive help

    Hey, skimmed through this thread but I actually had a great idea with the injury to Mueller. What about Alex Gogligoski? He has Shero-Pittsburgh ties and I don't think he's a black hole possession-game wise. Sorry if we didn't want to see this thread bumped, but it was a late night thought. Going to check out his possession numbers and stats in the AM. Sent from my C6725 using Tapatalk
  3. Kinkaid, despite 5 goals, is staying pretty deep in the net and looks good through the later half of the game. Sent from my C6725 using Tapatalk
  4. Cangi is right, this is chaotic as fvck.
  5. Wow, coming back from being down. Miles Wood is having a game tonight. Sent from my C6725 using Tapatalk
  6. It's a caricature of the politeness of Canadians. Just my honest opinion. Still funny.
  7. GDT: 11/7/17 Blues @ NJ Devils

    Did anyone else see Lovejoy take a tumble? I laughed and then I swore at my TV.

    Oh hush. Michigan is a pushover.
  9. GDT: Coyotes @ Devils 7:00 PM

    Well, they didn't penalize Coleman for that big hit on Ekman-Larsson. They kinda gifted us that roughing call. Other than that, I agree. ARI was flying out there tonight and that Keller kid is pretty sweet.
  10. GDT: Ottawa @ NJ 7:00 10/27

    Very risky, but looked like a pretty slick pass to me, but even more slick was his spin off the defender along the boards. Sent from my C6725 using Tapatalk

    I know what a play on the PK, one on three..... What pass what skill. Idk if anyone else saw this, but I saw Noesen pull off a kind of one handed stick lift. That was schweet. Our special teams are something else this year. Sent from my C6725 using Tapatalk
  12. Who is the Devils' Best Goaltender Right Now?

    Trust in Cory. Kinkaid's been good. Sad that Wedge won't really get a shot. Maybe if he sticks around. Sent from my C6725 using Tapatalk
  13. GDT: Sharks @ Devils, 7:00

    Oh, is Santini a scratch tonight? So it's Moore-Lovejoy on the 3rd pairing?
  14. GDT: Sharks @ Devils, 7:00

    Well, they didn't call us for too many men on the ice at the end of the period apparently. Said by SJ Color team.

    I just pulled up the game, only caught the end of the 2nd. Who knows? We've potted 5+ before.
