In Topic: Tim Sestito Goal Watch 2014-15

Today, 02:53 PM

Sestito represents the Devils futility with AHL call-ups and prospects over the last few years (a huge exception being Henrique making the team in 11-12). I can't imagine many teams (any team) having more pathetic numbers.

 

I have since 2011-2012, the Devils have 249 GP from forward call-ups from Bernier, Gionta, Mills, Sestito, Veilleux, Zalewski, Zharkov, Butler, Anderson, Pesonen, Boucher, Janssen, Tedenby, Sislo, Whitney.......and there are a total of 11 goals from the group -- six of those goals coming from Bernier and Janssen.

One of my favourite things to keep track of. His best chance I remember ever was Jagr feeding him a pass in the slot a few games back. He was alone. He had time. The shot was terrible.

Jagr will absolutely be a desired quantity if he agrees to go. i could see st. louis, boston, nashville just off the top of my head and i think he could certainly bring back at least a 2nd/conditional 1st. zidlicky will also bring a second back. ryder will get maybe a 5th. gomez might get a 4th. havlat could get maybe a 6th

 

You don't even bother dealing Gomez for a 4th or Havlat for a 6th unless they are asking to be dealt. There's so few players worth giving playing time to Albany. Reid Boucher and a little bit of Matteau. The Devils could use a Scott Gomez next season.

 

I think Ryder could get more than a 5th, but who really knows. These things are hard to predict.

 

As Tri has said, the Devils could use some prospects.

I'm not sure what Lou is going to do at the deadline or with Jagr specifically. Lou has never been a seller, not in 2011, or 2013, or 2014. Langenbrunner and Arnott were traded, but both asked to be dealt.

 

As for Jagr, I wonder if Lou would only trade Jagr if he said he wanted one. And even if Jagr is all for it, just don't think any team is dealing a conditional 1st for a 43-year-old player.

Nothing is dumber in sports than an Owner telling the team a coach is coming back after a meaningless late season win. And it happens so often. It's emotional, the team is cheering..it's pointless.

 

The Dolphins winning that week 16 game really shouldn't be a difference in Philbin staying or not (btw, I am not making a case for or against him), just the stupid process of how it happened.

 

Did Ross need to see a blocked punt for him to keep him?
