#1309278 Elias not happy on the 4th line

Posted by Devils731 on 09 March 2015 - 12:47 PM

He's not playing on the 4th line, so this is a non-story. I'm curious what questions Chere asked to get to this point.

I don't know, I think he's playing with arguably the least talented linemates. Maybe Ruutu can argue Jo and Harrold is worse but I think Zubrus and Gio are the worst because of Zubrus.

So maybe not the 4th line but he is getting the least talented help.

#1284707 It is game 7 of a new season

Posted by Devils731 on 25 October 2014 - 08:12 AM

Schneider has never played this many games before? Is every other goalie who is below their norm also suffering some odd calamity?

What's more likely, Schneider is having a rough patch to start the year, like many other goalies, or he's so scared of the 55 games he hasn't played yet that he's now below average?

#1262488 The 2014 NJ Devils Offseason Thread

Posted by Devils731 on 27 April 2014 - 08:57 AM

The implication of the post was "I'd like to get some new FA's sure, but if we don't, no big deal." That was pretty clear.

:lol: you waited 2 days and then completely misrepresented what he said.

Disagree with someone all you want but at least do it honestly.

There were 2 things said, this same roster probably makes the playoffs next season, which I think is probably true, and the Devils should try to add some of the good free agents.

As an aside that isn't directed at Neboors or this topic, I don't understand wanting to complain about a poster whenever they post instead of ignoring or discussing. It's getting hard to sift through a lot of threads because they're just becoming personal insults and arguments without any hockey talk.

#1262433 The 2014 NJ Devils Offseason Thread

Posted by Devils731 on 26 April 2014 - 02:36 PM

I think it's important to remember that Barney's claim was that he would be perfectly fine going into next year with the same roster, not just that we could make the playoffs. Point being, that given the fact that we weren't very good and indeed didn't make the playoffs this year, to not want roster improvements for next year is ludicrous.

Where did anyone say any of this?

Not to be board police guy, but it's always helpful to post at least 1 link when you bring in new information.

#1210094 Henrik Tallinder Lashes Out at DeBoer

Posted by Devils731 on 13 September 2013 - 10:19 PM

Tallinder is a quality defender. I agree he deserved a bigger role and I think he was fairly innocuous with his criticism and disagreement.

#1200178 Ryane Clowe signs with the Devils. 5 years. 4.85 per.

Posted by Devils731 on 05 July 2013 - 11:59 AM

A little too much and a little too long, so that's normal for an UFA.

Clowe may fit in nicely for the Devils so we will see how it goes.

#1187012 Is this the worst stretch of luck in NHL history?

Posted by Devils731 on 16 April 2013 - 04:22 PM

Looking at shot differentials is the same exact thing, which is why it drives me up a wall when people tout it. 


it helps when you have better players shooting the puck.  And what do you know, the player on the team that's best at that hasn't been playing. 


People have been providing context with the shot chart and with watching the games.  


Look at last game, not only did the Devils have many more shots, they had many more shots from good spots.  They hit another post, they had the goalie making saves where he's just hoping the puck hits him, and they missed some chances.  All those things don't keep going wrong, unless, overnight, almost every player on the Devils magically became half the shooter they've always been.

#1184875 Larsson

Posted by Devils731 on 08 April 2013 - 08:26 PM

Where did I say whether Larsson playing this way was good or bad?  I complimented him in one aspect of his game and fairly critiqued another aspect of his game.  Neither person disputed what I said is untrue but both seemed to feel it was unfair to say.


To clarify, I don't care if Larsson hits people, he doesn't put himself in a good position on the boards because he often won't fight for it, he's content to sit on the outside of the player and not win the puck.


I think people are too touchy on Larsson, as if talking about the areas he might improve in makes him actually play worse.

#1165436 Evan Roberts Is Awesome

Posted by Devils731 on 23 January 2013 - 01:18 PM

Hey, if the Rangers win the Cup this year, is it only half a cup? I mean, I'm just using their logic (and I use that term very loosely when it comes to Ranger fans) here lol. I mean, they all went out of their way to discredit the '95 Cup, so I'm wondering if that would be the case if they won this year. My guess is they'd be changing their tune on that real quick.

They would never flip flop on half a cup, just like they would never flip flop on hating defensive hockey systems.

Obviously you're not a bowler.

I'm a bowler, but I'm still not getting it. :noclue:

#1160256 Possible Buyout Candidates

Posted by Devils731 on 03 January 2013 - 12:39 PM

2 buyouts won't be used by that many teams IMO

Rangers were probably complaining it wasn't fair they had to use their first buyout on an AHL player. :lol:

#1158523 What was the best trade in Devils history?

Posted by Devils731 on 11 December 2012 - 04:30 PM

If its done in retrospect, then Kurvers for Toronto 1st round pick has to be the best.
