    Are the Devils light years better in the minors or am I reading way too much into it?

    He sounds motivated. He's coming to training camp with a chip on his shoulder next year

    Yes on this. It's also very clear, at least to me,that Hynes and Ray Shero are on the same page when it comes to things like scratching a Damon Severson for a game. I've said that when and if the time comes to move on from this coach it will be when this team becomes good, the expectations are higher, and the team maybe isn't performing up to that expected level. But we're not there yet.

    "Now it's obvious that talent was the massive issue." See that's the thing... it was always pretty obvious that the roster had a severe lack of talent. That's why the calls for Hynes' head were always pretty ridiculous. Will we win the Cup with him, who knows, but it's pretty clear people around the league respect him.

    I agree with these comments. I was a bit concerned with him, now I'm really liking what I see. The biggest thing I like is that I can finally see on the ice what it is he is trying to install....structure, and an identity. Now it's obvious that talent was the massive issue. I like the accountability. I like that they worked with Miles Wood. Wood looks like and is starting to play like a decent NHL bottom 6 player. And while that may not be sexy, that's important. Coleman as well. There's a lot of young or not a lot of NHL game experienced players on this roster, and it just looks like the improvements are coming game by game. Zacha is still only 20. Maybe from the organization's standpoint bringing him up last year with that group might have been a mistake. I'm confident that they'll get an NHL player out of him, if there's one to be had. I'm really hoping so.

    DON’T FIRE HYNES

    I’m liking Hynes more and more.

    Wow, seems like a effort issue... some guys are simple not firey, but they still need to train and play hard and fast..

    Since it's his first game of the year, one more update on Mikey McLeod: Ian Pulz‏ @HockeyPulz My goodness is Mike McLeod fast. Easily carving through the neutral zone, causing havoc on the forecheck and setting up lots of plays. #NJDevils And Michael McLeod scores a goal in his first game back in Mississauga! #NJDevils

    For everyone that asked about Zacha, here's a bit more info from Hynes (& Andrew Gross) from this article: http://www.northjersey.com/story/sports/nhl/devils/fireandice/2017/11/17/devils-brass-have-talked-pavel-zacha-agent-his-ice-time-coach-john-hynes-first-round-pick-ahl/876280001/ “He’s part of the team,” Hynes said. “Every player is different. Everyone goes through different circumstances. We’ve had lots of communication with Pavel. We met with his agent. We met with him. We all feel like we’re giving him the same message of what we need to see better. At this point of his career, he’s been here for a year, sometimes when you get out of the lineup, you’ve got to work to get back in, too. We certainly believe he’s a very good player but he’s got some things he’s got to get better at. “But we feel like we’re trying to do it collectively,” Hynes added. “The general manager, the head coach, the agent, the player, to make sure he clearly understands what needs to be better and then the player has to take it up on himself to put the work in and get himself back in. We feel like we have a very competitive team. Our team has played well. It’s not really a time right now for token games or token shifts. You’ve got to play the guys that have earned the jobs and earned the right to be in the lineup every night.”

    Thought this was a good sign: Todd Cordell Retweeted Aly Munro‏ @AlyMunro34m34 minutes ago More JR says Mike McLeod didn’t want to leave practice yesterday, was out there two straight hours requesting more drills. The captain is centering bro Ryan & rookie Washkurak tonight. _____ ETA: Ian Pulz‏ @HockeyPulz7m7 minutes ago More If anybody is wondering how McLeod is doing so far, he's been a beast,,,speedy with great puck protection...a pain on the forecheck. This is prime Mike McLeod #NJDevils

    McKenzie doesn't make broad statements. If he says it, something is probably being discussed. Now, whether a deal actually gets made is a different story. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Eh it doesn't seem active since people don't generally comment in the thread and there haven't been a lot of trades yet - there never usually are early - but every team except Clown has had a league activity (setting lineup, etc) in the last three days and every team's at or above five moves made on the season. Most seasons there are a handful of teams that barely or don't get to five moves for the entire season. And it's early but it looks like there's gonna be a lot of parity this year since the top two teams are still a bit above their game limits (particularly the first place team).

    Glad you racanted, lol, last year’s Cory knocks that loose puck in the crease in the 3rd into the net instead of making the flop goal line save
  18. GDT: Devils @ Toronto 7pm Msg Return of the Zajac

    It was a broad statement. I doubt he was eluding to knowing anything specific.
  19. GDT: Devils @ Toronto 7pm Msg Return of the Zajac

    Yeah, rage-turned the game off before seeing the replay. Looked like a cheapie. I was wrong, no doubt about it.

    I was listening to the radio before i felt asleep during the Blackhawks game and Chico had a similar moment at the end of the 2nd talking about getting out of the period without a goal after the penalty and before falling asleep my last thought was "God damnit Chico"

    Nolan Patrick was eased back into the lineup last night...played about 7 1/2 minutes.
  26. GDT: Devils @ Toronto 7pm Msg Return of the Zajac

    The funny thing was, as Cangi was saying that Kadri was basically gassed with about 5 secs left or so, and it felt like this game was definitely going to a SO, I remember thinking "Now watch Leafs score right here"...never believing that it was actually going to happen. My reaction was pretty much "Come on...fvcking REALLY?! "
  27. Shero Interview

    Kind of interesting when the stuff you speculate that a particular player might be feeling actually turns out to be in the ballpark of what he's actually feeling. Glad Hall has been able to turn the page and is in a better place, and kudos to Shero for helping him get there.
