  1. 2017-2018 Out of Town Thread

    The original Ottawa Senators relocated to St Louis and then eventually went defunct due to the Great Depression. The Montreal Maroons just plain went defunct. Those are the only 2 and they both happened a lifetime ago.
  2. Palmieri out 4-6 weeks w/ broken foot

    In order for key players to get injured there must be players that were key to something. In the last couple of seasons there weren't really any players that could be construed as key to anything because there was nothing to be key to.
  3. GDT: Devils at Vancouver, 11/1/17, 10pm (too damn late)

    Schneider heating up is a good sign. Same with Hall. Good to see Mueller have a good game as well. On the flip side of things, I'm seeing them overcomplicating and hesitating on some simple plays in their defensive zone that are causing them to stay penned in to their own zone. This hasn't bitten them as often as it could and that won't hold up if they don't fix it. While I understand wanting to be creative and less predictable to other teams forechecks, they need to be a lot crisper and confident with their movements on their defensive side of the ice. That isn't just the defensemen, it's the forwards and Cory as well.

    Marty was notoriously a slow starter. Devils tended to snooze through October, start waking up in November, and hit a roll after Thanksgiving. It almost felt like Lou designed their schedules that way.
  5. I remember Ahonen being dubbed our goalie of the future because Lou was getting tired of waiting for Damphousse to develop. Funny thing is there was a goalie during that draft period that the Devils picked that wound up getting NHL playing time, but it wasn't either of the ones penciled in as future starters, it was Scott Clemmensen. Conte's eye for goalies kinda went a bit haywire for a long while after Dunham.
  6. GDT: Devils @ Toronto 7:30 PM

    Melrose still gets paid to do a job that he doesn't bother to to any real research for.
  7. Only 6 years between posts lol

    That's where I was at last year too. I'd try to watch and wind up spending more time finding other things to do. This year it's gotten to be more like it used to be, getting more excited and intensely interested as the game goes along.
  8. Zajac... OUT 4-6 Months

    Pardon my ignorance, but can't Marcus Johansson play center as well?
  9. Devils All Access new host - Amanda Stein

    Based off of slight differences in same letters throughout the document, I'd say it's handwritten.
  10. The Devils Uniforms

    I would say that if Pat gets a statue then Stevens should have a statue. The plaza doesn't have quite enough room for all manner of statues. While Pat was a great player and the epitome of class and representative of all the good things about Devils culture, at the same time he didn't redefine his position the way Marty did to the point where they needed to put rules in place to counter his effect on the game.
  11. July 2017 Devils' Development Camp Thread

    Fair enough. I forgot which thread I was in and was thinking he was talking about Devils forwards overall.

    You didn't follow the team in 2000, then? (re: forwards)
  13. Who's bad?

    I would argue that in any given NHL team you need to reach a tipping point in terms of lines able to score to be successful. Figuring on players to deliver exactly their production one year to the next regardless of who else is on the team is foolish. In a situation in which Taylor Hall isn't the only player that teams need to key on to curb the team from scoring, the team as a whole will do better and so will Hall. Bringing in Johansson helps Taylor Hall, Palmieri, Henrique (assuming he's still part of the equation), Zacha, Hischier (if he makes it), etc. to all do better. It makes this team a lot harder to play against offensively. It's part of the reason that the A-Line struggled once Mogilny was gone. Having critical mass at forward is important and this team hasn't had it since Parise's departure.

    Shades of Alexandre Daigle and Patrick Stefan, no?

    We're not trying to recapture the glory of the Edmonton Oilers circa 2014, are we?
