#1321703 Devils 2014-2015 Off Season Thread

Posted by SterioDesign on 28 June 2015 - 03:27 PM

How about a low risk high reward lineup. Sign MSL and Parenteau to reasonable deals, if it works then great! If not then you can shop both of them at the deadline.

Cammalleri Zajac Palmieri
Elias Henrique St. Louis
Boucher Josefson Parenteau
Matteau Zubrus/Ruutu Tootoo

Thats not a bad lineup at all IMO. You have goal scorers on each line and a few play makers sprinkled throughout.

 

i think i'd rather try to get Mike richards than St-Louis. He's a lot younger and he won the cup. always good to have around youngsters.

#1320782 2015 Draft Thread

Posted by SterioDesign on 25 June 2015 - 09:51 AM

eh, i like his quote of "you can always rearrange the furniture."  maybe you end up with too many all-star defenseman, which can be turned into all-star forwards.  if you just up and take a forward because you need him, he has a lot less chance of being that all-star.

 

i normally always say go BPA.  its just i don't have a preference between Hannifan/Strome/ Marner, so I'd like to see us go forward if those three would somehow be there

 

But how would that happen? how long til one of our young dman has enough value to trade for a top 6 guy (IF they do get to that value)? and it would take awhile for us to really see what Hanifin has so we'd have to wait to make sure he's gonna be something before trading another one. Not a great process IMO

Anthony Brodeur not given a contract offer. He's back into the draft pool this year.

 

The Blues will pick him and retire his number next year

we desperately need a top center, chances that we can land one through trade is slim and our top center got 23 pts in 70 games this season.

 

23 POINTS IN 70 GAMES ! This as to be a record or something for a top line center honestly.

#1306079 Larsson blossoming

Posted by SterioDesign on 22 February 2015 - 10:24 AM

Stevens is not making miracles here with Larsson, the one and only thing helping Larsson right now is not having Deboer behind the bench.

Its pretty damn clear that Larsson was playing under unnecessary stress knowing that if he was making a mistake he was gonna get benched or sit a few games. You cant play your game that way, you overthink and its making you make bad decisions. It might sounds sily and easy to think "just grow some balls" but its definitely a thing and some players are struggling with that, confidence is HUGE for an athlete. Huuuge.

Also larsson's asset is passing and his decision making. Hes never gonna be super fast, have a canon, be a bone crusher or wtv. So Deboer was fvcking with his main asset, no wonder he was struggling.

#1305138 Devils Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by SterioDesign on 16 February 2015 - 12:42 PM

 
We have no more reason to believe Severson will be a star than we do Drouin.  Calling Severson a 1D after 30 games in his rookie season is a joke.  I'm not rooting against the guy, trust me - but take off your homer glasses for a minute, give me a break.
 
And uh, yeah you can name a bunch of D prospects and claim the Devils have "depth" in the talent pool - that's exactly what prospect depth is.  The Devils have a solid group of young defensemen in the system that could hopefully pan out to a solid core some day.  There's absolutely nothing inaccurate about that statement.

The REALLY good reason, this hypothetical example, is that you can acquire a game-breaking offensive talent, something that the Devils sorely lack and will not acquire in any other way (especially since they ruined their chance at a top-3 pick this season).  And I don't think it's foolish to consider an opportunity where you improve a severe weakness by dealing from a position of strength.

 

 

...I'm wasting my time here.  We're just going to have to agree to disagree, because, IMO, you're talking nonsense.


 

The Islanders seem to be the obvious solution for some of our veteran guys with families.

 

And then on the other end of the spectrum, there's Jagr.  Wonder what his primary motivation is right now.

 

 

Not to say exactly like you're saying but more adding to it. Well basically... you're right. But having super strong depth at one position is useless unless you're still balanced. The difference is really thin sometimes in the NHL between who has a strong group of D or F. One of 2 players can make a total difference.

 

But at the end of the day... you need balance. And i'd really rather have an average group of forwards AND defence (in term on quantity) and beef up both group through the year than being stacked on D and super dry on the attack like we are now. So if we can flip assets now... we really should do it.

#1305103 GDT: Devils at Preds 8pm

Posted by SterioDesign on 16 February 2015 - 09:11 AM

We know we know we know we know how you feel. You dont have to put down paragraphs about it for every thread. :(

 

well it was a response to someone's post who still thought Lou was relevant. IMO posters protecting and finding excuses for Lou and denying anything wrong he can do is just as annoying as me bringing this back

Posted by SterioDesign on 15 February 2015 - 10:06 PM

You're calling out Kool aid drinkers and listening to Chere?!? He hasn't been credible in years!

And lou hasnt been credible in years either. They are actually both on par when it comes to their job quality.

Look at ALL the bad signings, the terrible roster management, the horrible roster structure, all our lost assets, nothing to trade, our team is the oldest in the NHl, no speed, no skills, no good faceoffs guys, 2 head coaches!!!! the team itself is a joke and all we get is typical "status quo" non-sense and denial about what the whole world is seeing. Hes not even willing to admit that we need a rebuilt. Teams who went the right directions accepted what they are and made the right moves, lou as been in denial for 3 years now.

How in hell should we support that guy anymore? For what he did 15 years ago? Then geez lets bring back brodeur then.

And PLEASE dont tell me "hey he built a strong group of young D and got a good goaltender. Allllll the team in the nhl has something good and are way better balanced that we are. Theres no sugarcoating our situation. Were going downhill.

#1303732 Fans Q&A with Lou

Posted by SterioDesign on 06 February 2015 - 04:32 PM

What wins championships is defense.  Here's the last few cup winners in shots against:

 

LAK:  2nd

CHI:  4th

LAK:  4th

BOS:  29th

CHI:  1st

PIT:  18th

DET:  1st

 

A few outliers there - Pittsburgh got significantly better after their coaching change - but in general you have to be a good defensive team to win it all.

 

Ahhh well sure, just like any stats you can find one stat who's gonna say exactly what you want them to say. Here's mine. In all those playoffs here's where all those teams ranked in goals per games average.

 

LAK:  1st in goals for per games in the playoffs 

CHI:  6th in GF/G

LAK:  3rd (behind Pittsburgh and Flyers and we know why)

BOS:  5th n GF/G

CHI:  3rd

PIT:  2nd

DET:  1st

#1302173 Brodeur retires, joins STL front office

Posted by SterioDesign on 27 January 2015 - 09:49 PM

Heres my ultimate dream ending...

Next season, marty signs a PTO, plays a home pre-season game where he's splitting the game with his son. Marty starts, anthony ends the game. And they both have a special moment and an ovation at the end of the game.

Then marty takes a job in the front office.
