  1. Find the dumb GM - Marc Bergevin edition

    Although I'm not a huge fan of Carlson and think he is much closer to a second pair guy than top, having him, Severson and Santini on the right side of the d would be awesome. Now if we could just get a ld to play in front of Greene. Imagine: Klefbom-Carlson Greene -Severson Butcher-Santini My deal would be- Zacha, Henrique and a 2019 first for Klefbom next summer
  2. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    I won't go as far as saying this was our best game of the season, but it's up there. NJ dominated the 2nd and 3rd, which is nice to see. In past seasons, NJ didn't have the skill to put their opponents on their heels when chasing a late equalizer. Nice to see them get rewarded. Not getting the second point sucks, but they have had some good games lately. Toronto, Chicago and Minnesota come to mind. Yeah, he missed a wide open net, but holy **** Nico is special. He was doing whatever he wanted with the puck and Chara and McAvoy had no answer for him. Nice to see Bratt get back on the board. He needs to get going again. Thought Zajac had his best game of the season and Stafford didn't look useless.
  3. GDT: 11/20/17 NJ Devils @ Minnesota

    Zajac is absolutely a top 6 center and probably a better player than Nico now, if healthy. There is no other center on this team who can handle the Matthews', Crosby's, etc without getting crushed. Nico has not played well against a certain type of center this year because he is still physically immature. Koivu handed him his lunch and I'll bet Bergeron will tomorrow night if they see a lot of each other. Zajac and Hall were quietly one of the more effective duos in the league last year. I'd put them together when Zajac gets up to speed to let Nico destroy softer matchups. I agree with those who say Noesen needs to be back in. I know we've talked about it a lot in chat during games, but other than a few goals, Stafford has been a complete negative. No wheels, no creativity, effort seems inconsistent. Noesen back in means he can play net front on the PP and get Boyle the f off of there. Anyway, really hope NJ can take advantage of no Marchand and Krug tomorrow

    Man, I'm really digging that top 6. I agree with Jason in that I think Zacha is much better suited for wing.

    What about donations?
  6. GDT: Devils @ Winnipeg 3:00 PM

    Welp. At least Nico played well

    Ya, I'd say: 50% Rhode Island 15% Mass 30% NJ/NY/CT/NH/PA 5% Everywhere else

    Yup. Graduated in '14. That Oregon loss was brutal but winning the A-10 and the game vs Creighton is probably my top sports moment in the last 5 years lol

    Haven't really followed URI's projections for the year, but they lost Hassan Martin, one of the best big men in the country. They demolished everybody's favorite 16 seed, UNC Asheville, on Friday.
  10. GDT Devils vs Panthers 7:00 MSG+

    Devils desperately need Zajac. Nico will be a top line center and probably a star, but as @Marshall said the other day, he isnt one yet. Even though Zajac doesnt put up 1C numbers, he actually does a great job against the Tavares', Matthews' and Crosby's of the world. Nico has largely been getting sh!t on by elite centers, tho his possession numbers have actually been getting better.
  11. GDT Devils vs Panthers 7:00 MSG+

    Team does not have the personnel to hold a one goal lead. I know part of it is that we (probably) arent all that great, but NJ should not be sitting back at all. Getting Zajac and Mojo back will help a ton. They are two of our better defensive forwards. I think it's time to talk about Stafford. Every line he plays on is a black hole. He nullified Hall-Nico and now he's doing a great job ruining Bratt. I hope they play him on the 3rd line with Henrique when he gets back. I'd like to roll something like: Hall-Zajac-Palmieri Johansson-Nico-Bratt Zacha-Henrique-Stafford Gibbons-Boyle-Coleman ex: Wood/Noesen
  12. GDT - Oilers @ Devils 11/9/17

    Do you think he can be a star?
  13. GDT : Devils @ Flames - 9:00 PM - 5/11/17 (SN360, MSG+)

    Was hoping for a 2 pt road trip, so obviously 3 is good. I thought this was their best game of the trip. Nico might've had his best game of the night and Lovejoy was surprisingly effective. The top line crushed it, but the other three weren't nearly as good. Need to get some people back asap
  14. GDT: Devils at Vancouver, 11/1/17, 10pm (too damn late)

    Pfff don't you have a gdt to make
