  1. 2017 UFA Thread

    They lost a RW. So they couldn't replace the one they didn't sign? So Nico centers Noesen?
  2. 2017 UFA Thread

    -Be bad to get good NHL rebuilds have no guarantees. -This could go on for 5 more years or more. Or it could happen quicker. But who knows. - So just wanting 2 or 3 NHL players added to the roster for next year when I pay for and attend games and just wanting to see competitive NHL games doesn't make me unrealistic, fatalistic, or some sort of whiner. If someone is going to charge me good money to watch their product the least they could is spend a dollar or 2 on actual major league players.

    One whole NHL player added. Count'em...one. Mind boggling.
  4. In Russia NHL returns you. Kovalchuk staying in KHL.

    Quick question---Is the KHL considered the 2nd best? For some reason I heard the AHL was? And would you know what the dropoff is between a league like the KHL and some of the European leagues in comparison to something over here. For example, the SEL =NCAA in terms of talent, or the KHL is the equivalent to the best AAA league in baseball. Just curious if you might have some insight. I'm curious as to when players come over from those places, what those leagues compare to.

    Chris Ryan of the Ledger has this piece with quotes right from Shero: http://www.nj.com/devils/index.ssf/2017/05/next_step_for_devils_ray_shero_ilya_kovalchuk.html#incart_river_index Shero says anything with him that may happen won't be till after July 1st or after.

    I agree. He doesn't say that he spoke to anyone, and bringing up the Rangers or isles is just him projecting with no real connections to anyone involved in the situation being referenced. I swear some of these hockey writers are can be a bunch of washerwomen with talk, sometimes. I think it's because this sport has killed off it's offseason, in relation to the other sports. Not much hockey trades or UFA signings of significance as the other sports, so when something might go down these guys go really overboard.
  7. The NJ Offseason Thread

    Yes sir. I really think Shero can get some back end help and maybe an extra RW. But I really would like to be done with hearing about draft lotteries for a bit.
  8. Nico or Nolan

    Question to those who know better than me--- Does the fact that Patrick plays in the WHL mean anything here? Doesn't that league have less of a rep than some of the other junior leagues? or am I off on this and it doesn't matter.
  9. The NJ Offseason Thread

    Yup, if he was skating with them when the season started. Teams will overpay at the deadline because they have been able to take a good look at where their team is and what their needs are based on a good portion of the season having gone by. And they do that overpaying because they know that the spot there in and feel that whatever move they make can take them deep. I heard Fletcher say at the deadline this year that his team has never been in this spot this late in a season. It may not have worked out, but he tried.

    Ottawa......way to go. Still need to get to 4, I'm not celebrating till it's 4 wins.
  11. 2017 NFL Free Agency/offseason thread

    Best line I heard on this pick the Jets made was listening to Joe Beningo this morning. Guy calls in and says not much wrong about the Jets pick. Beningo says: "it's the Jets, what possibly could go wrong??"
  12. Taking the temperature

    Ha. I remember the vote and when they said the team's name was the Devils the reaction from the Archdiocese was not good at all And when they gave the explanation of the whole legend of the Jersey Devil I remember saying, " I've never heard about that anywhere till now. "
  13. 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs thread

    It's not a question of regretting the trade, but I think that there will be some questions raised about the whole point of the trade unless Ray Shero is able to add some help this offseason to give Hall more support and to provide the younger players they plan to bring up more support as well.
  14. The NJ Offseason Thread

    Remember, Boucher was the 99th pick. So him not exactly setting the NHL on fire is one thing. Mcleod's play when he gets here better be top 6 caliber or we all have a problem.
  15. 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs thread

    I don't think they are going into a complete tear down. GM's don't rush in line do go there. . I think NHL GM's feel that if you can compete for the playoffs, you try. They'll try and re-tool and try to compete. Once you go in the complete tear down route, there are no guarantees of when you can even compete again for a post season spot.
