#1329804 Rumor: Travis Zajac being shopped to Toronto

Posted by SterioDesign on 02 October 2015 - 12:08 PM

and people are still complaining about zajacs contract.. as its already been said here if he didnt get that contract then we would have lost another player for nothing.. he isnt paid like a first line center so i dont know why people have such a problem with this.. his years were a bit long but it is what it is.. he is not a first line center but on this bad looking devils roster he is forced into a role that maybe he isnt really capable of handeling ... i honestly dont know why people have such a big issue with travis zajac.. i agree we do need some more production in goals from him but he does alot of other things real well.. we will see if he can bounce back this year.


That's kind of the thing i find a bit... well i'd call it hypocrite (in a way, without being a jerk) about this fanbase, but in all fairness, this fanbase has been brainwash about defence first mentality for over 20 years so that's almost all they care about. And i've discuss this a bit already. 


We can have a player who's gonna do incredible things offensively. But if he's not amazing defensively, he's gonna get sh!t on from the coaches and fanbase like he's a useless piece of sh!t. Then if a guy is complete junk offensively but plays well defensively, everyone is going to cover for him and try to find positives about him cause he's good defensively.


I'm not saying everyone are like that, but a good chunk of our fanbase certainly have that mentality. 


I mean... in a perfect world you want a good balance of course. But you'd think that with a team struggling to score goals, a team with good goaltending and a good D-corp, you'd give a longer leash to offensive guys who can produce. Instead of the known typical devils players who "plays well all game long, do all the right things but can't score goals" and well if you don't score goals you don't win.


I just really don't understand the mentality.


edit: that being said im not saying a guy should get away with everything if he's good offensively. I'm just saying the favouritism for D first is a bit much.

#1329045 TSN Interview with Lou

Posted by SterioDesign on 23 September 2015 - 01:28 PM

the short fact is, Lou didn't lose Zach because of the money situation. He lost him because he CHOOSE to gamble Zach. That's it. He wasn't blindsided or anything he knew all along. He had complete control over Zach's situation for quite awhile but he decided to gamble the situation and let it drag past where Zach had 100% control. That's 100% on him. That's of course simplified but saying Lou had NO control at all is simply finding excuses for him. GMs who CANNOT keep a player knows it and trade him at the right time. Of course it sucks but thats part of the business. Sure, he gambled cause we were in the playoffs and everything but exactly, he gambled. That's it.


Other teams went through "similar" scenarios where they couldn't afford a player or wanted to make sure they'd retain them and keep control over their future. Well in all cases they dealt with the situation while they had control. Lou backed himself in a corner (and please don't say Lou couldnt do this and that because of the owners... he dealt with 99% of his players that exact same way and went out of his ways like... 5 times... 3 of them being AFTER zach left)

#1324551 Zubrus to be bought out.

Posted by SterioDesign on 29 July 2015 - 11:51 AM

I wasn't that dismissive http://www.njdevs.co...22#entry1321812


But I'm certainly surprised and definitely didn't anticipate it happening. Wanted it to but didn't think they'd bother with a one year deal and few RW.


ah don't worry it was simply from memory and didnt mean it like "HA! you were wrong!!!" 


like i said we all thought we'd just ride the wave since its a loss season

#1323127 Devils resign eric gelinas to 2 year deal

Posted by SterioDesign on 15 July 2015 - 07:07 AM

I knew it was going to be like explaining trigonometry to a chimp.  If you search for 'Mozik' on this board you get 6 results including the thread about him.  You clearly did not use it, or used it poorly.  Google would've also been helpful.  Forums don't exist for you to just ask dumb questions.  I realize this is sort of like the Streisand effect where I've helped contribute to the derail I wanted to avoid, but maybe if I'm rude enough people like you will leave and not use the place like a garbage dump.


Does it ever occur to you that this forum is not revolving around you? I really don't think so. There was no need to be an ass to 2ELIAS6


Forums exists for people to discuss, share and communicate, discussions are happening that way. It's NO BIG DEAL if someone ask a quick question outside of context and this wasn't even really that out of context. Plus its not as if it derailed the thread for 4-5 pages. It was just a quick question. He even specified "Not to derail this thread by any means"


But of course the way YOU want it is not the way everyone see it and when it doesn't go your way you always feel you have to play the smart ass / better than everyone card once again and when people don't agree with you it's cause they are stupid and don't "get it" lol get over yourself buddy.


This is supposed to be fun plus its the offseason. I know this forum is probably the one and only place where you feel you have power. Kind of like when someone takes World of Warcraft WAY too seriously cause they finally feel they matter.


again, let it go. have fun. even go nuts and get a damn avatar and some personality. i'm still convinced you're a robot.

#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

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.
