#1272942 Preds sign Volchenkov for 1 year/ $1mill

Posted by RizzMB30 on 07 July 2014 - 05:39 PM

Absolutely love that Shero and Bylsma being a champion for their own guy making team USA has overrated this guy so much. Thank goodness Andy Greene wasn't on Team USA.

 

I thought Volchenkov is the one defenseman that blurred the country lines. Everyone knows he plays like a rough and touch big North American defenseman.

 

It's going to be sad when the Devils sign Bryce Salvador for more money next season.

Dude, what are you on?  The Salvador comment is laughable, false, and due to his body wearing down, he'll be lucky to finish this year out remaining healthy.  The guy has talked about how he can't skate anymore due to his foot and groin injuries.  As for the bolded, I'm sure Andy Greene would beg to differ.  Your negativity is far outweighing logic at this point.  

If Andy Greene or Keith Yandle were on the US Olympic team at Sochi, things could have been different.  

Nashville gets a serviceable bottom pairing guy who is good on the PK,  good move by Poile.

#1272940 The 2014 NJ Devils Offseason Thread

Posted by RizzMB30 on 07 July 2014 - 05:25 PM

Maybe he is waiting until Brodeur signs somewhere else...

You're joking....Can we please drop the idea of Brodeur and his ego.  This kind of comment is the reason his ego is considered so big.  Ego's are inflated by other people building them up.  The Brodeur comments are BEYOND redundant at this point.  Lou has already made his comments on the issue and he has moved on, as is evident by the Clemmenson signing, as well as Lou's comments explaining that signing as a just in case Kinkaid doesn't play as expected.  Does Lou have to sign ANOTHER goalie so people would shut the hell up about Marty.  Can we, as a fanbase, just move the fvck on?  If the GM, who has a phenomenal relationship with the guy has moved on, maybe it's time for the fanbase to move on to.  Honor the legacy.  Love the guy for his contributions.  MOVE ON

 

That being said:  I'd love to have Schneider at 6m cap hit for 7 years.  It's not Rask or Lundquist money, but I think it's a great deal for us in terms of the money.  If he gives us 7 good years, maybe we give him another chance at 2 or 3 years.

#1271272 2014 Draft Thread

Posted by RizzMB30 on 29 June 2014 - 03:46 PM

The only pick I hate is Brandon Baddock and even he fills a need at the AHL level. If he turns out to be a spare 4th line enforcer who can skate than this pick is still a bonus.

 

If NJ can pick up Sekac then this becomes a productive offseason for restocking our cupboard. 

I still want Sekac preetty bad.  I'd love for him to sign his ELC with us.

#1271172 This off seasons UFA's and realistic possible trades

Posted by RizzMB30 on 29 June 2014 - 02:14 AM

NJDevs.com Home of the fairweather fans.  Imagine if the Devils actually started to rebuild.  Half of this board would disappear.  The Devils have no assets to make these big moves that everyone here is begging for.  It really sucks that you guys thrive when the team is doing bad and once things start to look up you guys will still be here saying, "I told you so" like nobody noticed that months ago all you could talk about was how much you can't stand Lou.  Go suck your thumb some more and cry about how Lou needs to be gone.

#1269590 2015 Winter Classic

Posted by RizzMB30 on 20 June 2014 - 02:19 PM

Or they should just have the Winter Classic feature the Stanley Cup winner with another team that maybe isn't such a big market.

#1266525 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs thread

Posted by RizzMB30 on 02 June 2014 - 08:22 AM

Yes, Quick's stats are not up to par, but you all are missing the the fact that Quick has face more shots than anyone in the playoffs....Quick has faced almost 80 more shots than Lundquist.  Is it the team bailing Quick out?  Or maybe the Kings suck at defense.  Yes, SV% is a huge part of the argument, but its difficult for a goalie to maintain a high SV% when he faces a high volume of shots every night and Quick has made some amazing saves in the Chicago series, despite his shoddy SV%, one stop on the Hawks on a big chance very late in the 3rd.

#1263034 Jagr Is Back

Posted by RizzMB30 on 01 May 2014 - 05:09 AM

I'm surprised Letang isn't a finalist. Not that it matters much, since Moore has got to be winning this, no question.

I agree man, he had  fvckING stroke and came back to hockey in time for playoffs.

#1261429 Marty on WFAN at 12:45

Posted by RizzMB30 on 16 April 2014 - 01:23 PM

There are a million quotes that say a million different things. Saying Brodeur was upset is fine, I am arguing against the idea that Marty was promised something explicitly and that he was some vengeful freak this year.

I'm with Neb00rs here.  Marty is a quality character and was really sh!t on around here on the boards.  To attack his play is one thing, which was sub-par when compared to Schneids this year, but to attack his character and call him a 'cry-baby' or claim he has a poor attitude tells me that its very easy to take what Marty said out of context.  He legitimately loves the game of hockey and there is nothing wrong with that.  Especially in terms of, wanting to play as many games as possible.  And I'm glad to see that some of you are being put at ease with Marty's more recent comments.  Maybe I'm too easy-going and willing to give people the benefit of the doubt, but I really believe that Marty is not going to find a job, even as a backup elsewhere in the NHL, I dare anyone to convince me otherwise.  I also believe that Marty is man enough to come back here as a backup, swallow this pride that everyone talks about, and reach his NHL-record 700 wins (maybe more), and then retire as a New Jersey Devil for life.  Who knows? You never know when someone can get hurt and that's why its good to have a reliable backup and Marty can be that as long as his role is clearly defined and he can live with that. *knock on wood*  Marty re-signs here and gets maybe 15-20 games

#1259443 In a Season of Problems, Brodeur was the Biggest

Posted by RizzMB30 on 08 April 2014 - 11:57 AM

This Blame-Marty is non-sense.

 

What killed us this year were (in order):

 

1. Our inability to score in shootouts. if we were 50% W, we'd be in the playoffs and this thread would not exist.

2. Our inability to score 5-5. Shut out too many times and we can't score even on backups and the other teams know it. (Blame Lou for having old scorers that can't score)

3. Our inability (blame the coach) to protect 3rd period and 2 goal leads. How many times do I have to see Zidlicy pinching down while we are up 3-1 or Jagr taking late 3rd period lazy shifts when we have the lead?

What? No.  That's on the players for not executing on defense.  The coach has no control over a deflection in front of our goalie with less than 30 seconds left or even 5 minutes left.  That is on the players. The coach can teach good positioning and decision-making, but when the game is on the line, there isn't much the coach can do.  What is inexcusable is having the CBGB line playing crucial minutes in the 3rd period.  I understand the trust in the line as a unit, but the only player I would trust from that line is Carter.

They control their own fate.  I just want to rub it in if we make it.  So many downers on here usually.  Many who have "Believe" posters in their sigs.

#1253259 The Quest for 91

Posted by RizzMB30 on 16 March 2014 - 01:05 PM

Does anyone here believe Lou when he said that Larsson is in the AHL to regain some lost confidence?  I mean, I can understand that since Larsson still a young and developing defenseman.  Who knows? Maybe Larsson will return to the NHL and play phenomenal?

#1188805 Let's Give Elias His Due Tonight

Posted by RizzMB30 on 25 April 2013 - 11:35 AM

I agree completely with this, I will be cheering from my seat at home.  He has been a mainstay of our forward corps for over ten years, he's been a leader, and really describes what people mean when they say "protypical devils forward", meaning he has a ridiculous skill set and solid two way player.  Even if he decides to leave (which would kill me), I would still respect him and believe that he has been the best and most consistent forward for the Devils for over ten years, almost 15.  I can understand if he doesn't get the deal he wants, he could bail, but I firmly believe in my heart that he'll remain a Devil for the rest of his career and will have his name in the rafters.  He means as much to this organization as Marty Brodeur does.
