    Agree totally with all of these points.

    Right, and I'm not necessarily advocating for a deal, but it's not because of our depth at center; it's due to the cost. Zajac is hurt, we don't know what's going to happen with Boyle (although we all wish him the best) and McLoed has been outperformed in the preseason by other youngsters. I think there is more than enough room for a top 2 center on this team right now. I agree though, losing Severson doesn't seem to make sense.

    I seen a couple posts that talk about Hall and how he sat down with Shero to discuss his role with the Devils and how he is expected to take more of a leadership on and off the ice. Do you think this, in any way is also to help motivate him to want to re-sign with the Devils when the time comes? What is everyone's thoughts on the leadership role that Shero wants Hall to fill?

    I don't know if I'm really interested in Duchene especially if it means Severson is part of the deal. I think it would be an extra trade too far. With Zajac, Henrique (who we know can be moved to wing), Hischier, McCleod, and Boyle to name as natural centers, I don't see where Duchene fits not only on the roster, but under the salary cap if you see Hischier or McCleod as long-term solutions. Now if Henrique is going the other way, COL might have my attention. Henrique, a dman not named Severson and a first round maybe. Sent from my C6725 using Tapatalk

    And we will take it.

    Due to circumstances beyond our control we had to give up our season tickets this year, so I feel relatively confident this will be a Cup season. If so, you guys can thank my wife and me.

    I think they like Moore a lot more (badumtsh) than that. I think they're looking at Severson/Greene/Lovejoy/Moore being the locks and the rest is up for grabs. Do wonder if one of Santini/Butcher doesn't start in the AHL so they can keep Prout from waivers (however hilarious that may sound).

    You can’t base anything on pre season. That being said, it’s better to look good than to look like sh!t. Keep it going boys.
  16. Around the League: 2016-17 edition

    Speaking of Duchene, one of the Colorado writers mentioned that the Devils were one of several teams who had a scout at the game last night. We are clearly hurting at center but you'd have to imagine that the deal would include Severson (who is now on a friendly long-term deal) or a first rounder next year (which has the potential to be a lottery pick). Doesn't seem likely in either regard, but I'd be interested to see what Shero could do considering TZ's extended absence. Sorry if this has been brought up ad nauseam elsewhere, but I thought it was interesting that a NJ scout was at the game.

    Devils were at least competitive in just about every season from 2003-04 to 2011-12 (even 2010-11 got to be a little more interesting than it had any right to be)...yeah, those teams tended to come up very short come playoff time (with the exception of 2012 of course), but at least you went into those seasons feeling pretty confident that the Devils would at least nab a playoff berth. It's the last five seasons have been especially rough, not just because of them not making the playoffs, but because they've generally been a very ugly team to watch. You can get away with winning ugly, but losing ugly is something else...and the Devils of the past five years have almost seemed allergic to putting pucks in the net. I'm very hopeful that this season marks the end of THOSE Devils. At the very least, it feels like this team should be a lot more entertaining to watch.

    I'm a Yankees fan and this is dangerous. The Yankees were supposed to be "bad", but a bunch of young guys are ahead of schedule and now we're in late-September chasing a pennant and it's got me right back in to "the world is literally fvcking ending" every time they lose. I promise you that if the Devils are within striking distance of a playoff spot near Christmas, the pressure (and inevitable suffering) will quickly find its way back into your fanhood.
  19. GDT: 9/21/17 NJ Devils @ Les Habitants

    ehhhh?? I've been saying it since the trade: you don't give up a 2nd round pick for a 22-year old RFA if you don't see him in your top-6 next year. I also don't think there's a chance Butcher isn't in the opening day top-6. Greene, Severson, and Lovejoy are 'locks'. That's assumed. Moore will likely play in quite a few games, but I can't consider him a top-6 lock. I think there's a decent chance that the opening day top-6 are Greene, Sevo, Lovejoy, Mueller, Santini, Butcher.

    It's actually refreshing to be "bad". This is the first time in my life as a Devils fan that I can just watch them play and not worry about playoff runs and wildcard spots and expectations. I get to watch a team full of young talent, and if we do good, hey that's great, but the only thing I'm expecting is to see young guys development, which is comforting. Takes the pressure of suffering through the last 15 years down a little.
  21. GDT: 9/21/17 NJ Devils @ Les Habitants

    In general I don't think any Devils fans who's been watching this team through these lean years is re-thinking their expectations too much. The most optimistic fans (like me) are thinking possible wild-card contention if a lot of things break right, but at least this looks like the beginnings of something better than what we've seen for the past several seasons...and it's not like we're not eager for even the slightest signs of that.

    Not to be a wet blanket or anything.. but didn't the Avs go 6-0 in the preseason last year? And I think we all know how the regular season went for them.. Really can't tell much about anything really from the pre-season. I'm just enjoying watching Hischier and the rest of the kids play.
  23. Around the League: 2016-17 edition

    So.. if anyone ever has a gripe with how Shero's running the team.. Take a look at how badly Sakic has handled the Duchene situation. Makes me kinda glad Marty didn't step into the GM role here, because it's gonna be reallyyy awkward when they end up firing Sakic.
  24. New York Mets 2017 Season Thread

    No experience...I think just like a young prospect, assuming Wright is even interested in such a thing (he still wants to play), you let him work his way up through the system, and even have him on the coaching staff for a couple of years.
  25. New York Mets 2017 Season Thread

    Any objections if they named Wright manager?
  26. New York Mets 2017 Season Thread

    This is what I don't like Has...it's like they're keeping him out of some fear that he might magically turn back into the Harvey of 2015...completely the wrong reason to do that. If Passive is worried that he might endure some criticism (he has to know that he's already getting his fair share anyway, so what's the difference?), in this case, I think most fans would understand Harvey not being tendered: 1) He's completely stunk up the joint in 2016 and 2017, and seems like a guy whose body simply can't handle what it takes to pitch effectively long-term in the majors. 2) He's a diva and a serious PITA (though in his defense, it's not like the Mets inspire any confidence when it comes to how they handle their players). You can even argue his presence around the Mets has become a bit toxic. Even when he was pitching well, he often acted like an entitled d*ckhead. 3) He's a free agent to be...even if he did enjoy something of a bounceback year (which I define to be a decent year at best at this point), does anyone really think that Harvey will be a Met beyond 2018? The Mets would be crazy to commit to him long term, especially since you'd feel a lot more comfortable giving bigger money to deGrom and Syndergaard (though it's still early to make the argument for those two as well). Passive has a real chance to start to change the dynamic of this team a bit, simply by non-tendering a guy who's always been a bit of a bitchy malcontent and who doesn't look like he'll ever be what he was...at the very least, you can send the message (FINALLY) that if you're not performing, you don't get to fvcking hang around here forever no matter what. That's been the biggest problem since Sandy's been here, and it's time for that to change. His numbers are scary-hideous BTW, from the start of 2016: 34 starts (basically a season's worth), 177.1 IP, 210 H, 112 ER, 26 HR, 67 BB, 138 K, 1.56 WHIP 5.68 ERA, 73 ERA+ (100 is average). And the numbers are getting WORSE. He really should be in the minors, but unfortunately those seasons have all ended. I do think the fact that he keeps getting trotted out there has something to do with prior transgressions...I think even though the Mets are going to tender him (out of misguided fear), I don't think they like him much at all. I think if this was someone else, they'd shut him down.

    Yeah, I kind of remember Pavel Brendl having some big preseasons, then promptly disappearing once the regular season began. Guys like that in every sport. That being said, it's really starting to feel like this is becoming Shero's team...it's still fairly early-on in the process, but you can see the vision. I like where it's going...and it's great that it looks like Hischier is going to start his career with the big club. Would be nice to see this team continue to win some preseason games...for vet teams that know they're playoff-bound, it doesn't matter, but sometimes I do think some preseason winning can help a finding-itself bunch like this group enter the season feeling good about itself. I never thought this team would be as bad as some prognosticators do, but the only way that I think the Devils will compete for a wild card is if Schneider has a big year. Last season wasn't all his fault, but he simply wasn't good enough for too much of the season...if the Devils get that version of him again, it's just going to be very difficult to stay in contention...especially for a team that's trying to build its confidence. I'm also curious to see, if Killjoy is shaky through 20-25 games, does he still keep getting playing time?
