The NY Daily News runs a poll immediately after a NY sports team season ends called Keep 'Em or Dump 'Em. Usually the Devils are not included in this, so for the past few years I've done the poll on here.

It's simple: Every player (plus some non-players) are listed, and you decide whether you want them on the team next year or not. Money and contracts are not a factor - this is simply a poll of who you'd like to see back, and who you'd like to see gone.

I anticipate that this year's poll, save for a handful of people, will be much more positive that last years...

If money and contracts are not a factor, doesn't that make things kind of pointless. For example, I'd "like" Salvador back but reality of the situation is it makes zero sense really to bring him back barring a trade.

It's a heart, not brain kind of poll. I usually try to get it up as close to the end of the season as possible but wasn't really feeling up to it last night, but the idea is to kind of get that raw immediate reaction.

Maybe "not a factor" isn't the right phrase - not the primary factor may be better.

I voted the same. I like Moose, but I think Marty's got a year left (maybe two if it's a split/mentoring thing, which I think it should be), and the second goalie spot has to go to a successor, not a backup.

I always say history does not control the future, but as much as we've enjoyed success under DeBoer, exceedingly few coaches have lost a Cup & then come back to win one.
Recent exceptions happened, (including last night !) although the win came with with different teams

But if I recall its just like 7-8 coaches who have lost first, then won later.... (Sutter CAL/LAK, Bowman STL/MON, Johnson CAL/PIT, Keenan PHI & CHI/NYR, Burns MON/NJD, and Babcock ANA/DET).
Single teams where a coach lost then won that I can recall are Sather with EDM. Let's hope PDB is the next one to do so !


Corrections to these facts, since 1967 expansion, from my memory are welcomed !

Yeah I've changed my mind on Bernier, now that the emotions of game 6 are out of the way. He's a valuable player at a reasonable contract. Maybe game 6 made him easier to retain actually, I'd like to see him come back.

i don't think anyone with a head ever wanted to dump zubrus for any reason other than serious cap crunch when someone with value was need to be expunged.

I thin it is more shocking that two people want to keep Eric Boulton.

When I watch the games its hard to find a guy playing harder than Zubrus.

That being said, it would be nice if he didn't get so much money. He hasn't scored 20 for us in a season and hasn't hit 50 pts either.

Toughest of those for me was Moose - we need ayoung guy in there right now, and while Moose is younger than Marty ;) he ain't young enough. He was a good Devil though, I liked having him back there.

the whole forth line is a must keep. people like Hedberg and maybe even Sykora and Salvador, may be too old to really wish back (Sykora for his age but Salvador for his potential price, mixed with his age) i wouldn't be too upset if Sykora retired

we need to get a young goalie under marty though, without a doubt. its absolutely that time where we have to think about our future behind net, and we really haven't taken much action. none of our AHL goalies have seen a minute in the NHL... right? and unless we get our future goalie in a trade ( :pray: ) then we better give our youngsters some minutes
