You don't know what 'replacement level' means (it means at the level of a player that can be gotten for free at any time) and you don't know what a 4th line center is.  Travis Zajac is still a very good player.  He just doesn't belong on an NHL power play first unit or a first line.

 

To defend Daniel, "replacement level" is the standard average player at the position (at least in baseball when calculating WAR).  I've never heard of "replacement level player" terminology in hockey.

 

Daniel is 1000% right when using that term for the Devils.  They are chock full of players near the average (or below).  Most of the team is filled with players who are not worth additional "wins" for the team by having them in the lineup.

Seriously - holy sh!t am I sick of seeing these whiny posts about the "old guard".  Enough already - if you don't like it here, move on.  Keep the pointless romanticizing to yourselves.

 

We're an active Devils community that is a thousand times better than hfboards and the various facebook groups.  People have strong opinions, and they discuss them freely.

 

It's a message board.  Do some of you guys even realize how boring this place would be if we all just held hands and sang kumbaya all the time?  

 

Typical.  "I can say whatever I want, we all have opinions.  But I don't want to hear yours about the old days!!"

 

Did you even realize how ridiculous that sounded?  Probably not.

Same old story with older posters remembering the good old days. There was just as much bullsh!t back then too. Selective memory is a wonderful thing.

There was never this level of BS, SH.

"Oh we got robbed for Zidlicky."  "Why can't we dump more players?"  Sorry folks, but 29 other teams are not garbage pickers.  Getting something of value for two declining players at a combined age of 81 with expiring contracts is not bad.

 

I'm pretty much done with this board and the usual folks who have completely ruined the experience.   No wonder so many people have left and don't come back.  It's basically just a complain-fest.  Not too mention a good portion of it deals with utterly ridiculous topics (hello, goal song and "you suck" chants).

Can we merge this with the "I am beginning to hate our fans" thread?
