#1326381 2015 NHL Off-season Thread

Posted by Devilsfan118 on 20 August 2015 - 10:54 AM

So I'll just bump this thread with this video.. I know it's not from this offseason, but it's being brought up when discussing the recent draft day trades Boston made.  Sit back and watch Boston decide to make one of the worst trades in recent NHL history.

 

First off - fascinating stuff seeing how these things actually happen.  

 

Second - holy crap does Chiarelli seem like a meek, weak GM.  Surrounded himself by a bunch of yes-men too.  

 

I'd give up my paycheck to be able to watch Lou work his magic during some of his more (in)famous trades.

#1323793 Lou is New Toronto GM

Posted by Devilsfan118 on 23 July 2015 - 09:48 AM

This is what surprises me the most really. To go under that kind of stress with how the Toronto media is. Just doesn't seem worth it.

I would rather enjoy retirement lol

 

Same!  I mean it can't be money -  I'm assuming he's made enough throughout his career to be able to retire and just.. relax.  Spend some time with his grandkids, golf, be on a beach somewhere.. 

 

But then again, maybe he's one of those guys that just doesn't find the idea of retirement attractive.  Maybe he just enjoys the grind.  Maybe he really does think he still has 'it' (recent results would indicate otherwise).

 

Maybe Lou and Marty really are more similar than I realized.

All this talk of drafting BPA is irrelevant, really - when they win the draft lottery on Saturday it should be pretty obvious who they'll pick.

#1308014 Devils Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by Devilsfan118 on 02 March 2015 - 11:27 AM

I seriously hope we don't get Kessel.

 

Timid, quiet, weak guy.  Not a leader.  He can score, but he won't survive the Devils' system.  No way.

 

(in my opinion, of course)

#1306504 I really am beginning to hate our fans.

Posted by Devilsfan118 on 24 February 2015 - 02:33 PM

But it's the SAME things over and over again and it's not exactly constructive to have the board constantly fighting with each other. Especially when 30% of the thread is one guy who can't wait to find an excuse to complain about the fans, 30% is another poster constantly calling him out and 35% is the same old complaining about YS.

Devil fans as a whole are the most self loathing fanbase out there and this thread constantly proves it.

 

QFT.  Especially the bolded.

#1296551 GDT: Washington @ Devils 7:00 PM

Schneider is horrible. How many years are we stuck with him?

Is this going to be your new "thing" going forward?

If so, please let me know so I can block you so I don't have to subject myself to your nonsense.

Well, that's that.

You know what - I'm gonna tune the game off. I came in at 3-1, now it's tied.

I'm clearly the problem

#1284327 Name an NHL captain less skilled than Bryce Salvador

Posted by Devilsfan118 on 24 October 2014 - 09:57 AM

Another thread that exhibits how lost the majority of fans are on this forum. Should there be a correlation between skill and one receiving the captaincy? Yes. Should it be the cause? No 

 

Over the past 25 years look at the winners of the Cup, I can think of 2 to 3 instances where the most skilled player was the captain of the team.

 

First off - I love when people try to act superior to others on this forum / this forum in general.  It's like a new trend lately.  If some of you are so much more enlightened than the rest of us, you probably should just.. stop coming here, right?  It's especially ironic that you're calling us "lost", when you posted a thread the other day that 99% of the board was against.  Not to get too personal (because who has the time for that) but I feel like the facebook fanpage is more your.. breed.

 

Second - Who in this thread said the captain should be the most skilled player on the team?  I think most are saying the captain shouldn't be the LEAST talented player on the roster.  

 

There's certainly a happy middle ground between skill and leadership, but I don't think Salvador hits it.

#1279129 Prudential Center's New "No Smoking" Policy

Posted by Devilsfan118 on 25 September 2014 - 09:17 AM

Also not a smoker, and never have been, so I'm going to take a bit of a harsh stance on this one.  Good, I'm glad they're doing away with it.  When that smoking deck is open during the intermissions that entire side of the concourse wreaks of smoke.

#1274002 Kovalchuk Retired Effective Immediately?

Posted by Devilsfan118 on 19 July 2014 - 05:11 PM

My gawd.  That right hook on Brayden Schenn...Good lord.  2012 will still go down as one of my favorite seasons to watch the team.  Hell, it might go down as Kovy's best NHL season.


2012 was definitely one of the most enjoyable and exciting years in recent memory I'd say.  Especially compared to the brutally boring hockey the team played last year.  

 

Life's a real bitch - at the time we were expecting that kind of play from Kovy and Parise for the next decade.  

 

Cango has improved since this season as well.

 

Agreed.  I actually don't mind him anymore.

#1273804 2014 Rookie Camp

Posted by Devilsfan118 on 16 July 2014 - 09:40 AM

Man the Devils have SO many quality prospects on defense.  It's truly a great thing.

 

(In no particular order) Larsson, Merril, Gelinas, Severson, Santini, Scarlett, Jacobs..even Burlon and Hrabarenka.. damn.

 

Does make you think some of them have to be expendable though.  

 

I have to admit.. I was always adamantly against trading Larsson.  But if he's still got that flashy appeal to other GMs..and if he could snag a quality offensive prospect.. I'm starting to think it might be a smart move.
