In Topic: New Jersey Devils' Lineup/Roster Thread 2015-16

Just because I am bored. What if we were in contention towards the deadline. Would anyone want #68 back for a potential push?


No.  I love Jagr and he's still a very effective player but this team should absolutely not add anything at all short-term.

Perhaps I'm out of the loop, but didn't the Devils' game forum chat threads used to be much longer in the days or yore? It seems to me that this would have been a 10-page thread not too long ago. So my question is this: Are the Devils fans just less interested than before or has there been a change in protocol for game-day forums on this website? No dog in this fight, just curious.


Devils fans less interested plus message boards in general have been superceded by places like Facebook and Twitter.

So many great things about this game but I think my favorite is that Danis was the 3rd star with a shutout which is something you rarely see.


Also Mark Fraser took a 5 minute boarding call; wonder who he lit up.

I don't get the controversy.


There is a process to be able to fix incorrect calls to correct ones. A linesman caught what the refs missed. From the replays I have seen, Campbell clearly shoots the puck.


They got the call right. It sucks for the Devils.


It's the fact that no one has seen a call like this before.  Yeah, I've seen linesmen call penalties, but I've never seen a linesman rule on possession of the puck on a penalty call.  They made the right call, but imagine if they hadn't?  And they only showed the angle that demonstrated Campbell touched the puck once on the NJ broadcast and Campbell misses the puck with his first swipe, so as I was watching I didn't even see that they had made the right call.


Possession on penalties is one of those weird calls - sometimes the ref just blows the whistle even though the opposing team never touched the puck at all, some refs actually look for 'control'.  Normally it doesn't make a difference but here it did.

In Topic: Quarter mark biggest disappointment/surprise?

Palmieri would probably go for biggest surprise for me, but I'll say Adam Henrique - no one is complaining about him at center and his shot rate is way up so far this year.  He's on pace for 36 goals which won't happen but 25 is somewhat realistic with this kind of ice time.


Biggest disappointment is tougher - it's impossible to say Josefson because he's played very well, he just hasn't gotten that goal - I'll say Tlusty because I thought he would be a solid add and he really hasn't done much so far.
