I don't understand this move.. unless a D trade is coming

 

I would say most definitely sweet. Gelinas, Moore, Larsson, Hrabarenka, Severson, Merrill, Helgeson, and Mozik all 24 or younger.. and every single one (with the exception of Mozik) saw NHL playing time last season. Let's see how this shakes out over the next couple of weeks.

I was sad to see Percy go.. but, if he isn't turning heads (like Cimini is suggesting) he could find himself back with Gang Green before September.

"Of the three organized team activities, Harvin missed the final two for non-injury reasons. He returned for voluntary minicamp last week, but didn't stand out. It's not clear exactly where Harvin will fit."

 

..can't see the Bills keeping more than 6 WR's. Doubtful that Watkins, Woods, Hogan or Goodwin get cut. Then it'll be decision time for Buffalo. Cut Deonte Thompson, Dezmin Lewis (who they just drafted this year) Marcus Easley, or Percey Harvin. With the Jets, Harvin was valuable due to his returning skills. But the Bills have Goodwin\Watkins & Leodis McKelvin for that.

Are you really comparing the Penguins to the greatest NHL franchise of all time?

We are turning into the Penguins franchise, and slowly, the memories of Brodeur, Stevens, Elias, and Lemieux will be replaced..

 

Lemieux. As in; Claude Lemieux? The same guy that won a Stanley Cup with Montreal in 1986? Or how about Stephane Richer? The 3x All-Star.. 2x 50-goal scorer, who also won a Stanley Cup in Montreal, prior to coming to the Devils.

How about the front office since Uncle Lou took over? Jacques Lemaire.. Jacques Caron.. Jacques Laperriere.. Larry Robinson.. Pat Burns.. Mario Tremblay.. Claude Julien.. Pierre Mondou, etc. Or the shared principals of Montreal? The fact that Lou came in and said: "No facial hair, and\or jewelry showing?" --just like the Canadiens. No gimmick give-away-nights.. just like the Canadiens. No third jersey's.. just like the Canadiens.

..look throughout the history of this organization since Lamoriello took over.. you will find more Montreal fingerprints than you think. Lamoriello has gone on record regarding his affinity\infatuation with the Canadiens franchise. As a result.. the Devils enjoyed immense success. 3 Championships, and 5 Stanley Cup finals appearances throughout a span of 17 years. But now it's time for a paradigm shift.. and the new front office feels that the Penguins have the winning blueprint. There's nothing wrong with that.. it happens all the time in other sports franchises.

 

The legacy of guys like Elias, Brodeur & Stevens will NEVER be forgotten. Never! Embrace this change bro. We've got 1 playoff appearance over the last 5 years. It's time for healthy transformation. :thumbsup:
