  1. Need more zone penetration tonight. Not enough creativity and speed last night to create quality chances.
  2. Cammalleri - Zajac - Tlusty Quenneville - Henrique - Palmieri Elias - Josefson - Ruutu Matteau - XXX - Kennedy Tootoo XXX = Kalinin, O'Brien, Gionta, etc. Greene - Larsson Severson - Merrill Gelinas - Schlemko Moore Schneider Kinkaid Some thoughts: - I think Quenneville is more versatile/effective than Boucher - Matteau has been eh - Kennedy would be a solid 4th line addition - Tootoo should be the 13th forward - The Elias/Josefson/Ruutu line isn't amazing
  3. Last year: Komisarek, Kaberle, Fedotenko on PTOs This year: Kennedy, Stempniak, signed Tlusty late Its refreshing not seeing early-mid 2000s players at camp.
  4. He signed a 5 year deal post Parise/Kovalchuk and we were already missing the playoffs. I don't think Cammalleri is upset at all here. With that said I'd explore the trade route in 3 years for sure.
  5. Worst case scenario is Larsson is a good middle pairing guy with a competent partner. At $4M thats OK, not great but this won't handicap the payroll in the future.
  6. I don't feel miserable at all as a Devils fan. We just started a new era, we have stable owners, new upper level management, and a young foundation. Sure there are transitional pains and growing pains but misery would be being a Coyotes fan at the present moment, not at all a Devils fan. And Lou did not "bail" on the organization. This guy is a hack and it shows because he is working for SI.
  7. I know, I wanted to miss the playoffs for another couple of years. I don't know if I understand this from Toronoto POV. Great GM who will certainly make the Leafs a tight ship but long term I guess they are grooming Dubas.
  8. Yeah man, this scrimmage makes me think half of the guys owned by NJ will make it cause they played well in development camp. Get real. 29 other fanbases are raving about their development scrimmages as well.
  9. This is a nice deal because if Santini/Moore/etc. take a step this year/next year Gelinas can be a valuable piece in a trade. RFA at end of contract and very friendly cap hit for the next 2 years. Obviously this is just thinking ahead. I hope he continues to be a offensive juggernaut.
  10. Ugh yeah. Thats kind of the whole mindset now. Building for the future and sustained success.
  11. I can't believe this discussion is real. Even if Conte did not deserve to be fired he is 66. The Devils are planning now for the next 10-15 years, is Conte going to be here when he is in his 70s and 80s?
  12. Maybe...because they have either done absolutely squat and/or have been doing poor jobs. Enough with the sentimental BS. This is a pro hockey club not a family reunion meet up.
  13. Zajac has been looking for that jam kind of guy with a knack for goal scoring ever since Parise left. Even though Palmieri isn't on ZP's level he should elevate Zajac/Cammalleri.
  14. Cammalleri-Zajac-Palmieri Henrique-Zacha-Semin Elias-Josefson-Ruutu Matteau-Zubrus-Kalinin I could go for that. With Zubrus/Ruutu here I don't see room for Gionta. If Boucher makes the team out of camp bump Ruutu down.
