Yea, it was instant deleate when I realized Taormina is probably close to as good as Russell and all those pieces don't get us a right shot.

Patric Hornqvist is someone who would be had. Horrible start for Nashville as well.


i don't think nashville is giving him up, but i would obviously love to have him. i don't think there's a trade fit there, nashville desperately needs forwards and 2nd pairing D. neither of which NJ has in excess.

With the emergence of Adam Henrique, it really wouldn't surprise me if Tedenby is included in a package for a Gagner or a right shot. I have a sneaky suspicion, this is usually the time that Lou would package a youngster.

Tedenby to Phoenix for Turris. Obviously other stuff needs to be included, but Phoenix made a quality player out of Petr Prucha for a few seasons, Tedenby could do that for them. Turris needs a clean start, if he doesn't hack it with NJ, he just can't hack it in the NHL.

Love Tedenby as an individual, and his effort along the boards. But he's not doing all that much for the team right now. Part of it is the linemates he has, too. He's good on the cycle, but he still can't hold the puck when he gets pressured... hasn't solidified that part of his game like Gionta did early on.

If he can bring back a guy like Turris or Gagner, even if it is a bit of a hail mary, I'm okay with it. He's starting to remind me of Bergfors. That said, it's clear he's a big hit in the locker room... it'd certainly shake things up, but would it further stifle a room that's probably already feeling pressured?

Matt D'Agostini
Cody Hodgson
Nathan Horton
Rich Peverley (Kovalchuk factor)
Brad Boyes
Kyle Okposo
Daniel Aldredsson
Steve Downie

Only one on this list I see as a real trade option is Brad Boyes - but he's got a terrible contract, and he actually provides some scoring threat to the depth of Buffalo.

Hornqvist, Oshie, Hodgson, Okposo aren't going anywhere. Horton is doubtful, and he doesn't look like the same guy since his concussion. Peverley just re-upped with Boston and is one of the few guys scoring goals now. Alfredsson wants to end as a Senator, and Downie is a nutjob... better offense than Clarkson, more of an agitator, but if the Devils' roster has Clarkson, Downie, Janssen, and Boulton as options, I'm gonna be pretty damn confused.

Not sure what was worse tonight, the action on the ice or the kid(s) sitting next to me spitting over the railing onto the steps below.

For some reason, I was the a$$hole for confronting them about it.

This occurred in Section 230. They stopped for the most part after I said something to them and security came over (not at my request, i didn't leave me seat from puck drop to the last few seconds) threatening ejection.

After telling me I wasn't a 'true fan' because I wasn't appreciating him and his friend spitting (among a lot of other incoherent arguing), as he left with 5 minutes to go, he proceeded to spit twice on the steps. When someone in the 230/231 area was walking down those steps leaving, I overheard "I cant believe I just stepped in spit."

So, anyone in Sec 230 tonight?

I was in 104, saw a fight break out during warmups in one of the lower bowl sections, 21 I think, 2 Devils fans were harassing 2 Leafs fans, then the one Devils fan got tossed by a Leafs fan WITH ONE FREAKING ARM. Dude never spilled any of the beer in his other hand.

Well bottom line

• Parise and Kovalchuk are just not clicking together, gotta keep them separate
• Sykora and Palmieri should have buried those empty netter opportunities on both plays we got scored on their next breakout
• Brodeur was terrible other than on that huge save


i wish we would play a style like the leafs are, they are using their speed big time with their breakouts. We are not



Just watched the highlights. Couldnt agree more.


Also.....IF (and thats a HUGE if) the Gagner trade is true.......it needs to happen RIGHT STAT NOW.

they do love tedenby and i'm pretty sure they're disappointed, but not pressured...yet.

Arrgh...the downturn I and others thought was coming after the smoke-and-mirrors 3-1-1 start is here. Now 4-5-1 with two regulation wins. I said it before, but with this team's current makeup and talent level, if the can stay around .500 before Zajac comes back I'm happily taking it.

Kovy now up (or down) to a team-worst -7 and still looking brain-damaged far too often...no shock there. Tri will fire back with "How long do you expect him to keep shooting at a 5.3% clip?" Yes, he will likely start finding the back of the net more often, but I'm through kidding myself that he'll ever be much better, in terms of overall hockey sense, than he is right now.

I've always been a Marty defender, as I think his body of work tends to be underappreciated by some, but last night was the first time I actually felt sadness watching him play. I can't pull the plug on him based on one bad game, but if this really is the beginning of the end (Who knows at his age? Without more games no one can say.), I hope he realizes it, and calls it a career sooner than later. There's nothing worse than seeing a former great trying to hang on with a diminished skill set.

Hoping for a surprise against the Flyers tonight.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Yeah, but even I didn't think the fall would be this quick or this stern. It's now to the point where if they don't beat Winnipeg and Carolina (or one and surprise against Philly) this season could spiral out of control very quickly with the big road trip right after.

As far as Kovy...this RW experiment needs to die, now. It just gives him another excuse to go in the tank. He was bad even strength and on the power play, you think when you have three one-timers from the faceoff dot, the goalie isn't going to be ready by the FOURTH one?! Not that Zach is producing either (and that's another experiment that needs to die, he's not an NHL C, but he's a star at LW), but still.

Unfortunately in hockey, you can't send a guy on rehab the way you do in baseball. At least not a star player...cause Marty sure looked like he at least needs a game or three to get back in top form. What a switch from three years ago from when he came out firing after his bicep injury.
