Devils trade the entire 2013 draft to Buffalo in exchange for a conditional outdoor game. More to follow

But seriously, will we have any picks this year?!? Lol

Edit: All picks are for 2015. Sounds good to me

Idk, you are overreaching with that complaint. Throwing 5th rounders around for NHL ready players is not bad at all.

 

and i was talking in general too not specifically about this trade. Im okay with this trade personally

well i watched him play a lot cause he was playing for montreal... he had good moments and bad moments... more bad ones though

 

And the year after he left he put in 21 goals. But you're so terribly quick on making up your mind on how good a young, developing player is that you'll ignore that nugget of truth.

Great move imo. Very low risk and it's not for any of this year's picks. Hell, it's not even for any of next year's picks haha. Could turn into another steal for us and even if it doesn't, oh well.

Swap Zubrus with Poni and I like it! Poni destroyed that first line for the last few weeks.

 

EDIT: I just hope this trade wasnt meant for replacing Poni, hopefully hes healthy soon.

He's out on the ice for practice 

 

 

Devils just starting to take ice for practice. Alexei Ponikarovsky (lower-body) back on the ice today after missing last night's game.

#Devils fans should know they're getting a quality person and player in Matt D'agostini. Very popular guy in the dressing room #stlblues

I'm not a fan of D'Agostini's but this is a guy who's basically another Bobby Butler, albeit more expensive.  I also don't like that Pesonen was the guy sent down instead of clown-shoes Sestito.  Also to qualify D'Agostini the Devils would have to send him a QO of almost $2M, which seems incomprehensible.

Lou stikes again

 

I think who is trying to see how many contracts he needs to hand out this off season. 

 

We have 11 RFA/UFA on the NHL roster right now.

 

Then there is Joferson / Teds / Kinkaid / frazee plus more in the minors. Bust off season for lou

I've been told I'm very personable as well.  Hopefully we'll be getting Ted Ginn's family as a throw in.

Not having time to look it up, I wonder if someone on the Blues got hurt that year, then D'Agostini got some time on a line that he ordinarily wouldn't have.  His numbers that season were almost a quantum leap over the rest of his career.  SOG per game were up a little that season, but not that much.

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.

Well at least he has some speed and Blues fans are saying he has a very good shot. Hopefully he sticks unlike Butler.

clown shoes plays center and josefson is hurt. i think that's all you need to know there. they don't want elias/zajac/loktionov/henrique out of the top 6.

haha! bitter dolphins fan strikes again.

He's faster and has proven to be more productive than Butler

sure, but you can play a third line of carter-henrique-d'agostini that's capable of playing 11-12 minutes at ES without falling all over itself.  i guess i'm presuming that ponikarovsky would be back for this to happen.
