  1. I think the odds of adding Sergachev are extremely thin. A) I think he's going to be selected before the Devils pick and B) the Devils need offense so badly that I really see them selecting one of Jost, Keller or Brown (assuming no crazy Devils' trades). I also think that Chychrun is going to fall down the draft further than most people think ... and, in my opinion, he's the most likely of the top three defensemen the Devils might have an opportunity to draft. As such, I'd be really shocked if Juolevi or Sergachev are still on the table when the Devils head to the podium. Hence, I see nothing but a forward in the first round.
  2. I couldn't have stated this any better. And for what it's worth, I'm not at all worried about Blandisi. I think this kid has loads of potential and he's added some much needed excitement this year. Last night's "incident" and Blandisi's potential "attitude" problems are laughably insignificant at this point.
  3. I almost had a heart attack at the end of this game - which is fine by me because that means the Devils are relevant once again. If anything else, this team has moxie. Obviously, there are some glaring deficiencies with this team but they are sure fun to watch again. If Cams can get back sooner than later and the kids keep playing the way they're playing, that 8th seed is more than do-able. p.s. Why are there so few chat threads this season compared to years past? Is it a format change or has the board migrated elsewhere?
  4. Perhaps I'm out of the loop, but didn't the Devils' game forum chat threads used to be much longer in the days or yore? It seems to me that this would have been a 10-page thread not too long ago. So my question is this: Are the Devils fans just less interested than before or has there been a change in protocol for game-day forums on this website? No dog in this fight, just curious.
  5. I think this is how I'm starting to feel about the Devils this year...
  6. I don't think it'd characterize it quite like that. However, that being said, when I read this post I shot vodka soda out of my nose from laughing so hard. In sum, well done sir, well done...
  7. I think we all have to acknowledge that this Devils season, at least right at this very moment, is about as good of a scenario as we could have been hoped for.It's a fun team to watch again.
  8. Oh my god, I thought the same exact thing. According to my calculations, the odds of the outcome we just witnessed were about 316 to 1. UPDATE* - Just got off the phone with an MIT prof and he said my math was, "Totally sound." So, there you go.
  9. I do kind of wish that the Devils would have a predominately black uniform as a rare third option. I think you could design something pretty badass.
  10. I think as much as I wouldn't mind seeing Elias on the third line, he's not going to be a happy camper playing there. So there is going to be some politics - especially given the fact that coach and Shero seem to be relying heavily on Elias' leadership this year. Maybe Elias still deserves a 2nd line spot and maybe he doesn't. But I think he's going to have to really flail to get moved to the third line (or start the season nursing injuries while someone really steps up to push him out when he returns).
  11. When I first heard that Chris L. had departed the organization I was devastated. But then I realized I had no idea what he actually accomplished over the past decade ... and felt better immediately.
  12. Best part: Tampa Bay Lightning, 2004: Come on. Verdict: Literally could not count any less.
  13. My thoughts on Jordin Tootoo are the exact same as Tuomo Ruutu: They have way too many vowels in their name. Granted I'm a consonants guy, but come on ... that's just annoying no matter which side of the tracks you're on.
