Hedberg played well.  That's the most important thing.  Offense will come and go (mostly go, it seems).  This wasn't a great game - was worse than the first Buffalo game, I think - but other than Salvador being his usual terrible self, there wasn't much wrong with this one either.

 

Liked what I saw out of Kostopoulos too - slid right on to that Carter-Gionta line and did not look out of place at all.

 

I like Kostopoulos as well. Brought some energy, made a few nice passes, didn't really do anything noticeably bad. Definitely an upgrade to the 4th line.

 

Also, I just want to say how much I loved that Miller got to come in to take the loss tonight. Just made it that much sweeter. Did anyone else notice that once he came in Henrique was pretty much out there CONSTANTLY? I loved it. He was buzzing as well, thought he was gonna get the winner in OT. Loved seeing Zajac get fired up and getting into it with Ennis as well. Maybe this is just what they needed to get their swagger back a bit.

 

Also also, Salvador needs to fvcking go. He was literally the ONLY minus player tonight. Unsurprisingly, he's been on the ice for more goals against than anyone on the Devils by a wide margin (31). Kovy is 2nd with 23. That's awful for anyone, but for a captain it's just inexcusable.

 

One final note, I thought Zids looked really good tonight. Seemed like he was always on the ice and always making things happen. Really seems to have stepped it up lately.

I literally feel like I just had a 100 pound weight lifted off of my chest. Wow. I'll take it lol.
 
I felt like Boudreau and the Caps in the second episode of 24/7 after they finally broke their eight-game losing streak or whatever the hell it was.

That's actually a great way to describe it Has. I almost danced a jig when Elias scored the shootout winner lol.

Salvador needs to join Rivet, a former Sabres captain who was a healthy scratch all the time.

Yeahhh that's a lot. 2 picks and 2 top prospects for a player who hasn't been playing up to a big contract? Eh, I feel we'd give up less or get more.

 

It was also reported by @HockeyInsiderr however I'm not sure how reliable he is. For whatever reason it's now trending all over twitter. Apparently ALSO Heatley said on KFAN FM 100.3 in Minny has said that Heatley has waived his NMC as well. The rumored deal that I've seen pop up is Heatley & 5th to devils for Tallinder, Urbom, 2nd & 4th. JJ would not be apart of this. All that said I don't know if I'd trade Urbom for such a deal...sub Burlon however (who to me is less proven but with the same amount of potential) and I would do it.

HockeyInsiderr seems just like another Єklund (2.3% accurate) or Incarcerated Bob. This is just a made up rumor that's made its way onto twitter. I haven't seen any Wild fan mention this anywhere nor has any credible reporter touched it.

If hockeyinsiderr is the source, we won't be seeing Dany Heatley in a Devils jersey. He pretty much got outed as a kid making stuff up.

Looked around over at HF for any more tidbits on this as possible (since it's gaining steam over there as well)  Apparently it was started before HI reported on it.

 

These "third party" sources have let us down many times before. I think since it gained ground it should be a wide-speculated rumor. Let's wait until Hadrek, Bobby Mac or Dreger say anything (if anything) about it.

Yeah, those are the guys I trust. And they seem silent on it.

I felt like Fayne and Zids were a little out of control - it's not helpful :smilegah:  A little too eager to pitch in ain't so bad though.  What's annoying is when guys stay in position but still manage to do diddly.

Yeah... these game day threads make the suicidal / homicidal / fire DeBoer people on twitter seem tame. Really turns me off from even wanting to post in the GDT's anymore. Does anyone here just sit back, watch the game, hope for the Devils to win, and analyze it after as well? Probably unhealthy for you guys to go off the deep end every time DeBoer makes a personnel decision you do not like or we get scored on. We're not NHL coaches or GM's for a reason. I understand being critical but damn.

He thrives when the Devils are losing, contributes nothing when they are winning, pretty sad really.

 

 

EDIT: I thought Zidlicky had another really strong game, also loved what Harrold brought, but man he does not like to shoot at all.

Btw, does anyone know why Miller was yapping at Henrique after the shootout in Buffalo?

 

Elias has too much class to do this, but I would have jawed at him after winning last night

I think it had something to do with henrique shoving I think Ennis after the OT ended the last game. I was hoping henrique was going to go second and score to rub it in, but I really can't complain.
Notes on the game:
.kovy had a decent game, not great but liked that I saw him hustling more and showing some heart/fire
.liked what Harrold brought, had some bad moments but overall liked his offensive mentality.
.thought the devils controlled the game after buffalos first goal. Liked the effort
.keep bernier and carter together
.sal still blows
.nice seeing moose play well
.poni is not a first line player, we need a winger for kovy and Zajac badly.

For a player like Kovy just trying is not good enough. I am surprised we have not seen a “Did Kovalchuk Score Last Game?” webpage yet.
He needs to wow us again

Checking and forechecking really isn't his game, but he was doing both of those last night. If the guys plays every game with his heart on his sleeve like last night then I can't really complain.

the humiliation Elias gave miller when he undressed him on that shootout pretty much did the job
