When (if?) he gets his next start, if he falters, I wonder if he says something along the lines of "Well, it's tough to have so much time in between starts..."

 

He never really had to deal with prolonged inactivity between appearances until last season, and it's probably still not an easy adjustment for him, but at some point, if you're Marty, you gotta look at the tapes and realize "Maybe I just don't have it and won't get it back no matter how hard I try."

 

Haha I snarked about this in my last post but then took it out.  I don't think he will do that.  He may do that if he and the Blues part ways.

So educate me how is the draft outside of the top two? Stronger, weaker or the same outside of them?

 

It's a very strong draft.  Mitch Marner is putting up close to 2 points a game, so is Dylan Strome, and there's other elite talents at the top of the draft.  It's not 2004 where there's Ovechkin, Malkin, and not much else.

And yeah, even if he gets across, maybe he still misses the shot 20% of the time or something - Carter is a terrific shooter and when the goalie moves he will have holes.  But he gave himself a much worse chance of saving it.

Haha there it is. The Devils need forwards with talent, period.

 

Stalberg had 18 points last year.  He's supposed to be a huge upgrade on what?  Zubrus?  Ruutu?  The Devils already have a ton of LWs - they have Cammalleri, they have Henrique, Elias, they're using Gomez as a LW, they have Ruutu and Zubrus, and they also have Boucher and Matteau in the minors.  Cammalleri and Zubrus should be back before January 1.  The Devils don't need another LW signed through next year, when they've already got 5 of those - they need right wings (where all their guys are UFA next year) or centers.

That goal could happen to anyone - the Jeff Carter goal was really the one that screams Marty's done.  He just doesn't get across - there's no push at all.
