Sigh.

 

Welcome to New Jersey Devils trade deadline - where we make a big splash once every 5 years, and acquire other team's garage otherwise.

 

Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

DONE

Vanek to Canadiens.

 

That's that. See you all for the 2014-2015 season. We are officially done. And overspending for old guys.

Maybe the stupidity of Garth Snow will keep the ineptitude of Lou Lamoriello blanketed. Terrible thought if Glen Sather is now the Metro area's top GM.

I've been lurking most of the day to read what other Devils fans thought we might do at the deadline and to see if anyone here had an inside scoop compared to generic NHL sites, but this post is just so fvcking stupid that I had to register and call you out.

 

LL is suddenly inept because of the one and only trade he made today to acquire a veteran winger and got rid of a ridiculously underachieving RFA?  I admit, I had huuuuge hopes for Loktionov at the beginning of this year, but the guy has done next to nothing, so it doesn't pain me to see him go.   Ruutu's contract isn't all that bad, at 4M for 2 years left.  The problem isn't Lou -- the talent is there.  It we would stop playing fvcking games with guys who should be in the NHL full time like Larsson and Gelinas, and probably Josefson, we'd be in much better shape.  Instead DeBoer, or whoever else is influencing these stupid decisions, continue to give helmets each night to pylons like Volchenkov. 

 

I'm just glad we didn't lose a guy like Zidlicky, who has provided so much offense for us this year on the back-end.   Dumping Salvador would've been nice, but the guy is our captain and that's honestly probably the reason he didn't get shipped. 

 

I'm also glad Brodeur is still with us.  Here's hoping he accepts his current role.  Hell, he isn't even a true backup yet, he's still effectively splitting starts, since every time Cory has a flaky night DeBoer isn't shy from putting Marty back in and letting him try to win the job back.   I've never been a fan of a carousel at the goalie position, but I'd much rather deal with this for a season and see Brodeur retire as a Devil, than to see him go somewhere else where he'll likely still be a backup, and tarnish his legacy .  People saying this is a circus and a media nightmare are fvcking whiny and retarded.   The perfect ending for me as I've accepted the end for Brodeur is to see him finish the year with us and make a big push in the playoffs and then having him retire, or even one more season on a 1 year deal, provided again the he further accepts the backup role as we continue to give Schneids more starts.

What a bad deadline day. Have always been a big LL supporter but this was beyond bad. Especially seeing what other teams gave up for serviceable players. Devils got fleeced on the Ruutu trade. Hard to say they arent the losers of Trade Deadline day.

I blame minnesota. No one probably wanted vanek he's a giant flight risk back to minni.

Trade deadline is over. Now the only suspense left is if all the people who are done with this team pop in after every loss to remind us that they are indeed done with this team.

Great job clearing that defenseman logjam Lou. Well done. Now Larsson can rot in Albany for the rest of the season. I'm seriously getting to the point with Lou where he makes me want to punch sh!t on deadline day almost every year.

What an absolute waste of time.

 

I'm out, done with hockey for the day.  No sense getting any more pissed off than I already am.

 

Now I'm just waiting for Marty to be announced as the starter for the next game.  JUST WAITING FOR IT! :lol:

All I wanted was one of the superfluous defenseman moved. For anything. A fvcking spare tire, I don't care. And Lou can't do it. And I'm also glad we addressed that scoring issue by adding a guy with 5 goals in 57 games. Bravo Lou, bravo.


I love Lou to death, but I want to punch him in the fvcking face right now.
