So do we need a pick or do we need a top 6 forward? You're not getting top 6 forward for Tallinder that's for sure

 

No but you can get an asset to flip for a top 6 forward, you can get roster space to try out someone else and payroll flexibility to bring in someone with a decent salary that some other team might want to offload.

 

They're just being stubborn right now, is getting maybe a 3rd/4th instead of a 5th for Tallinder worth farting away points in a short season where it just might come back to bite us?  We're not icing our best team right now, and we're not in the clear for a playoff spot by any means.  This is beyond annoying.

Bad period for the Devils. They need to do a better job staying out of the box. Fortunately, they are only down 1. Henrique's work on the Elias goal was magnificent.

 

Bad game for Tallinder but I refuse to get on a guy that is trying to get back into form after being benched for a lengthy amount of time through no fault of his own. No wonder his game is off. How quickly people forget that Tallinder was NJ's best defenseman last year before he got injured as well as the prior year.

 

Play Tallinder, Fayne, Sit Volchenkov or Zidlicky.

On a side note. I feel really dumb asking, but what game is featured in the "Drop the Puck" commercial?

 

It's Henrique scoring the goal that sent the Devils to the Stanley Cup Finals last year - Game 6 of the ECF against the Rags.

Tallinder was not at 'any' point the Devils' best defenseman other than maybe the second half with Lemaire.  He's been pretty star-crossed for most of his tenure here though, and our record without him last year was much better than our record with him.

well, this could be a lot worse.  but we've missed some opportunities too.  

 

This game is getting exciting though, when you step back and look at it.  The end of that period had so much energy. 

 

Get up and play boys, take one lets gooooo!!

 

LGD!!!!

Salvador is the 7th best defenseman in our lineup.

 

I'm being nice.

I'm not getting on Tallinder, I'm getting on the Devils for being too cavalier with these early-season points.  They want to treat this as preseason but it's really not.  Stop getting too cute and let's get serious here, we may be in first now but we're only five points up on a playoff spot.

You can hear, "Henrique scores!! Its over!!" I want to assume its the rangers playoff game last year... 

 

... and I say that because my reaction was pretty much the same as every one of those guys

Well through all the chaos I found it so fvcking cool the Verizon Center gave Dave Matthews Band a little love, playing a very specific live version of one of their songs.

First off I don't think using W-L records really tells all that much about what a player has done to help or hurt a team. Plus using anything this is year is with a small sample size. I also disagree that he wasn't at any point the Devils best d-man when you look over the seasons as a whole.  You can make a really respectable case that he was in fact the most valuable guy when he was healthy. I'm going to make a separate post on Tallinder because it bothers me the way he has been treated this year and I don't want it to get lost in this thread.

I heard it but the shaky video made it hard for me to put it all together. I just wanted to be 100% sure.

Lemme guess, CORSI?  People really need to stop being a slave to made-up numbers, at least inasmuch where it totally overrules what you see.

What I see is that Tallinder is usually good and sometimes very good.

Devils PP.  4-on-3 for 20 seconds.  Gotta cash in for the tie at some point here, let's go!

You can stick to your W-L numbers that don't tell you anything about a player if you want to be closed minded. As I said before I use stats like Corsi to balance what I see. My perception of Tallinder's Devils career is that he is a very good defenseman and the numbers will back that up. I'm not a slave to anything.

Yeah how about you call the GM and tell him what's going on, or all the vendors? What's the deal ref??????? We were on a tear, and now the Caps get a 5 minute rest.
