In Topic: Streaming Devils' Games

Your best shot is probably signing up for GameCenter, but it's pricey and sometimes a minute or five behind the actual play.

 

There's free, not-entirely-legal type streams available at places like Justin.tv, but with all of the pop-ups and clickbait links that seems legit but aren't, it's almost not worth it unless you're desperate to see it, and the streams usually aren't great quality.

Can't we just enjoy something?

 

Don't be ridiculous, enjoying things is not in the Devils fan DNA. We could go on a tear, make the playoffs, win the Cup, and we'd still be bitching that we blew our chance to draft McDavid.

In Topic: Hypothetical: Let's say McDavid pulls an Elway

I've been wondering almost the opposite here.

 

Let's say the Devils somehow win the draft lottery again. Buffalo finishes last and gets the #2 pick, Edmonton second-worst and is sitting at #3.

 

Do you call up Edmonton and say "You guys just went from having either McDavid or Eichel to neither. Blow me away." and see if you can pull multiple pieces to fill some pretty glaring holes in this team (and future draft picks) and give up McDavid in the process? Or do you thank your lucky stars that you somehow won your second lottery in four years and take McDavid and go from there? I feel like you've gotta at least see what you can pry from them, assuming that they and their fans are gonna be livid after another season of misery, to miss out on the two generational players in the draft, and might be willing to do something stupid.

 

It's all a huge hypothetical anyway, but so is this thread in general, so why not.

In Topic: Devils Trade Deadline Thread

Was doing a little searching for prospects that might be buried on a team with a stacked roster. LA has a center that shoots right named Nick Shore who has produced REALLY well in the AHL this year. I wonder if they'd be interested in trading him for Zidlicky since they have no idea if they'll get Voynov back this year. Even if it meant tossing in an extra pick like a 3rd, that might be worthwhile.

LA is pretty set at center right now and he's only gotten 6 NHL games this year, so they might be open to trading him. Has put up 42 points in 38 games and is getting nearly 2.7 shots per game this year in the AHL. He's 6'1" 195lbs and we need guys who can play center or RW and this guy could do both.

 

I remember when he was in the draft, I was hoping we'd pick him.

 

Mostly for the Jersey Shore headlines that'd crop up immediately on NHL.com, but also seemed like a solid skilled center.

Now that I spend so much time around there, I'd kill for Trenton to return, but I wouldn't bank on it.

 

I don't think the Devils are the only team without single ECHL affiliation, though. There's a graphic going around that connects all of the NHL/AHL/ECHL teams and I'm reasonably certain there are a few others like the Devils that stop at the AHL level.

 

Edit: Found the graphic: http://www.icethetic...hl-affiliations - Devils are the only team without ECHL affiliation, though some teams share ECHL affiliations, and there's a small handful of ECHL teams that are unaffiliated. Sorry for the confusion.
