  1. Past hour
  2. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    I won't go as far as saying this was our best game of the season, but it's up there. NJ dominated the 2nd and 3rd, which is nice to see. In past seasons, NJ didn't have the skill to put their opponents on their heels when chasing a late equalizer. Nice to see them get rewarded. Not getting the second point sucks, but they have had some good games lately. Toronto, Chicago and Minnesota come to mind. Yeah, he missed a wide open net, but holy **** Nico is special. He was doing whatever he wanted with the puck and Chara and McAvoy had no answer for him. Nice to see Bratt get back on the board. He needs to get going again. Thought Zajac had his best game of the season and Stafford didn't look useless.
  3. Man Convicted for killing over NJ Devils hat comment

    I love how the last line of the article just lists the Devils record so far this season lmao so out of place
  4. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    I need to chill on the boyle hate yesterday, it was hockey fights cancer night, so Hynes gave him some moments.. can't kill him for that.. Thought travis was finding his legs later in this game, a good sign Benching zacha in the third is getting old, Hynes is being a douche bag now.. if the kid doesn't play fast enough for you cut or trade him.. I thought he was OK, at times very good , like when he carries the puck in or wins a board battle and makes an outlet pass, Stafford has fallen into the lazy habit of the soft area dump to wood , go chase it miles.. Bratt fit in well with the top dogs

    Still would like to see a Lappin in for a Hayes - I think they could use some new blood/fresh legs for a boost.
  6. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    Well even though it may look weird from the outside who Hynes picked. The coaches are seeing those guys practicing SO and they know their success rate, that's what they go by, we have no clue really other than guessing on what we see in games. Also not sure where i saw that but i know that Hynes told the guys lately that if any of them thought they deserved a shot in SO, that it was their chance to prove it and they had a SO session in practice just for that. So again, they know more than we do 200% sure it's undeniable so it's just a matter of keeping that in mind

    Liked the 3rd period response and push. Still got a point out of it. They win the Corsi game and lose the actual hockey game, I don't know. I think I liked hockey better before I paid attention to that. Because I'm bummed they didn't win. But this team hangs tough most nights, and as long as they're hanging in this thing as the season keeps progressing then they are meeting my expectations. I'm getting antsy for Mojo to get back, but concussions are no joke so just recover well. On to a tough Canucks team, let's get 2 points. And a Good Turkey Day to all.

    Wait, we're really dumping on Hynes for shooter choices in an 11 round shootout? C'mon guys... we were like 5 rounds away from seeing Lovejoy take an attempt. That late into the Bettman's Fake Point-a-thon it really doesn't matter who you send out, just hoping for some Marek Malik type sh!t. As for Miles Wood... I would like to see him get redemption but if you've watched his previous penalty shot attempts, for some reason he comes in slow as all hell and just over thinks it. Can't really blame Hynes for not wanting to go with him yet. Speaking of which, that was honestly brutal to watch... after the first 3-4 shooters for both team's it was just awful attempt after awful attempt, literally the only thing entertaining about it is the fact that a point is riding on it. There's nothing exciting about watching Damon Severson and some "who the fvck is that?" Bruins take awful penalty shots for ten minutes... but whatever. Pretty good game by the team. What sucks is they've lost three contests I can think of in the past few weeks where they were far and away the better team, home against Edmonton, at Toronto, and tonight. Hopefully they can start building off these more complete efforts. At least we got a point.
  11. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    No one should realistically expect them to stay on top of the division though. They are still a young team coming off of five years of futility. They still have a ways to go to being true contenders.

    These are all unblocked shots.
  13. Find the dumb GM - Marc Bergevin edition

    In your mind he still is what he was 5 years ago and in my mind he isn't anymore. 2022 it drops to 3 million, from 2023 3 years at 1 million. And maybe they put in a loophole or do something in the next CBA to help teams get out from these contracts somehow, but I don't like to bet on those things. He certainly won't retire - 1m per year won't make a difference at that point to him but why walk away from it if you don't have to? IF he retires teams will be on the hook for cap recapture and if he ever wants to work in the league I can't imagine that'll help his reputation around the league. He might get a Hossa-like injury, but even then he only goes on LTIR, which isn't without its problems. If NJ ever becomes a high payroll team it'll be very difficult with a non-playing Weber on the books. For starters they can't go above the cap in the summer by more than 10%, Weber's deal included and by day 1 of the season they have to be below the cap with his salary included before putting him on LTIR. If this team was where I think it can be in 2020, which is a team capable of winning playoff rounds, then yeah, I could see swinging for the fences and making a trade for Weber. But where they are now, I'm not so sure I like the deal. And that's before even discussing the potential cost of getting him.
  14. NJDevs '17-18 Fantasy Hockey

    I just need to let Bob stay in ne and not worry about goalie games played... every time I play someone else it messes it up later (like I inadvertently played Elliott tonight instead of Bob) and lost a vital shutout.
  15. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    I like your optimism. It's hard not to see good things. And Trust me I do. But if you really believe they'll be able to stay on top of our division with the way they are playing now then you are a super optimist. Speaking of the playoffs, they should be able to make it if...they significantly improve. Don't judge by 20+ games. It's a long season. Let's wait for a first stretch of divisional games.
  16. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    Crazy game to be at. Bruins fans were only moderately annoying. Definitely got our money's worth out of those free tickets. Lots of extra hockey.
  17. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    I love how people on here thought that like last season we wouldn’t be good and exciting to watch, and now that we are and are playing well generally and getting points and good offensive production, they say we’ll start falling in the standings. If we end up making the playoffs, they’ll say : “they’ll get killed in the first round”
  18. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    Good choices
  19. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    Agree, but Bruins looked much more confident. Our guys except Hall were awful.
  20. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    Yup, these wristers annoy the hell out of me too. Now slap shots at all. No slap shots
  21. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    IDK about positives, I love our young guys, but get ready for a nose dive down the standings. GA come from constant defensive breakdowns. Scoring reminds more and more of the past few years when every goalie looked like a hall of famer. I lost count of how many times they failed to score simply because they f...g lost control of the puck. Henrique used to be a clutch scorer. WTF happened to him? I'm not expecting this team to be stellar, but they certainly have the potential to play better and not suck on home ice. And Hynes with his choice of shooters (Boyle, Severson) must be out of his skull.
  22. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    Yes hope the little one is feeling better !

  24. MLB 2017-8 Offseason

    Well ONE of the guys they lost (Maitan) was young but highly regarded, the others were still crapshoots at this point but yeah this is hefty, losing all the future bonus pool money hurts about as much as losing all the prospects they already had - albeit they had them through ill-gotten means. Apparently the Braves were (among other things) cooking the books, signing older IFA's for more money they never got that got funneled under the table to prospects via an agent who represented both trying to get around the bonus caps for prospect IFA signings - it's a bunch of stuff like that. I can't even really explain it that well but certainly it seems like this idiot who lost his job forever had a bad reputation in baseball circles as it was and this clearly wasn't hidden very well for baseball to get such ironclad proof of so much wrongdoing.
  25. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    I agree - there weren't enough screens on the Henrique breakaway or the Coleman breakaway. So yeah, you've successfully shifted the goalposts. This is where I leave you.
  26. GDT: Boston @ NJ Devils 7 PM

    Hope she’s feeling better.
  27. NFL Week 12

    Ostensibly they've been trying to sign him for weeks but he only agreed now. Figures he wanted to be sure he'd be able to play the Jets
