  1. Remaining Summer Business for Devils

    Hey, I like Auvitu. I think he deserved more of a chance than he got but he was bombed out to the AHL never seen or spoken about again. There were other call ups but never him. I very much got the impression Hynes didn't rate him but (not for the first time) I could be very wrong.
  2. Remaining Summer Business for Devils

    It was pretty damn obvious that Auvitu wasn't coming back. Has Mueller done enough to warrant much, if anything, beyond his QO? Sign a D-man. Top priority imo.

    Just seen that Josefson has signed a one year with Buffalo. Will be interesting to see how he does there.
  4. 2017 UFA Thread

    The thing about the trade route is you have to have something to trade. Schneids? Hall? Palms? Who else is going to get a return worth having apart from the prospects that the team worked so hard at tanking to get? I'd love to know what Shero has up his sleeve now.
  5. 2017 UFA Thread

    So we'll be taking on some bad contracts to reach the cap floor in exchange for picks then?

    Giradi to Tampa Bay. Obviously they won't be chasing Shattenkirk now!

    Always liked his play. Good mentor for the young 'uns maybe? An upgrade over our fourth liners from recent years imo.
  8. GDT: 6/23 and 6/24- NHL Draft

    BRING IT ON!!!!!!! Really looking forward to this draft. I think I'll be happy with either Nico or Nolan at this point.
  9. 2017 Expansion Draft Thread - LV Takes Jon Merrill

    If Shero has done any deal with Vegas I hope it's to take the largest cap hit from us, as that will give us more cap space for free agents like Shattenkirk. I think Vegas are either going to have a fairly decent team from the get go or a hell of a lot of picks on friday.
  10. Poll: Who do you want Shero to select #1

    Bit like choosing between Kovy & Parise imo. Both capable of putting points on the board. One through audacious skill. One through phenomenal work rate. Oh to have both! I'll vote, but will probably change my mind on a daily basis.
  11. The Devils protected list

    A few teams will be doing deals to make sure Vegas don't pick certain players. Vegas will probably be paying the Devils just so they don't have to pick any of our players! Seriously though. Maybe Shero has a deal in place so Vegas picks a certain player?
  12. Nico or Nolan

    I gotta admit when the story broke about Dallas listening to offers for the #3 pick I hoped Shero could do a deal for it. But let' face it. Any deal involving lower round picks to move up to the first is going to require Shero to sweeten the deal and there's not a lot of sugar left in the pot to sweeten it with. Realistically what would we have to give up to get another first rounder? Rico or Severson and a 2nd?
  13. In Russia NHL returns you. Kovalchuk staying in KHL.

    Ha Ha. Every time they show Woods picture during a game I'm thinking damn, it's James Franco!
  14. The NJ Offseason Thread

    While it may be within the rules to offer incentives for Vegas to pick or not pick certain players the fact is Vegas doesn't have to accept them. Surely they're going to want to be competitive sooner rather than later so they build a fan base and bring in revenue. The owners aren't going to want keep pouring money in for too long I'd imagine.
  15. 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs thread

    That's pretty much the same claptrap they come out with after every losing series. Just change the date and save yourself the trouble of reading it next year.
