  1. When they announced the color change, I had an idea for a jersey using that exact logo, and using this exact color scheme, later (almost) used by the Albany River Rats. Imagine my surprise when both surfaced, in separate parts, several years later! My 15ish year old self had really cool tattoo-style Devil face shoulder patches. I couldn't find one that was similar to my idea online, but I found this one that I think looks just like Adam Henrique which is funny enough to post. it would be my new profile pic if it wasn't watermarked. 40 year old me thinks that NJ map patches would be cooler. I know a lot of people hate black jerseys for some weird reason, but this one would have been money in the bank IMHO.
  2. Almost none.
  3. If he's a top line forward, then he should stay here. On our top line.
  4. I agree. My bottom line is, his KHL stats suggest he is better than at least half of our offensive players, even if he has declined. How do you not even give him a look if that's the case? What are the odds of getting anything in return that is better than a 34 year old Kovy? And, even if you are going to trade him ultimately, his value is obviously more if he comes back to the NHL and shows he can compete. Then he'd bring an even better return. I'd take that chance.
  5. Umm, yes, this. Shattenkirk plus a 1st????
  6. Yeah I think Ottawa is about to take a beating and the Rangers fans will be very excited.
  7. Mine sucks as much as expected.
  8. Immediately slotting in to be our third highest scorer isn't worth it? With the ability to trade him at a deadline to a contender? And, assuming again the 50 points, you probably get better value after he's proven himself.
  9. I don't think that Kovy coming would have any effect on any of that. Who would you prefer, Kovy at 25G, 25A or DSP? Or Bennett? Or Cammy? Or Josefson? The list goes on from there. There's plenty of room for him and developing young players. Stick that version of Kovy on a line with Zacha, good things will happen.
  10. I'd pay him $6 million each for two seasons if you'd guarantee 25 goals and 25 assists (although you might be low on the assists, he may be capable of more than that). Bottom line, we don't have cap issues. Worst that happens is he bombs out, at least you don't have him for 8 more years. At best he helps the team back to the playoffs. Somewhere in the middle he shows he can still play and you trade him to a contender for some prospects or picks. I just don't see a down side, assuming that spending the money on him doesn't prevent us from spending on someone else we could use. I'm not saying Kovy instead of say, Shattenkirk for example. But if you can sign Kovy and still get the other available guy or guys we want, why the fvck not?
  11. True, but also a record number of overtime games as well.
  12. Anderson follows it up with the "in your face" overemphasized glove save on Oshie. Leafs are feeling it...
  13. The definition of a lucky bounce. Puck off the end boards, bounces right in front to Auston Matthews. Well played.
  14. That's probably a good point I hadn't considered.
  15. Bolded part #1, I never expected he was going to "retire" and leave. I don't know if, at that time, it would have been reasonable to assume he was going to retire early. Bolded part #2, I hope you're right, I'd like to have enough good players that $4.8m on the cap would make a difference.
