In Topic: New Jersey's Desperate Need for Young Forwards

20 August 2015 - 12:44 PM

The problem with this thread is some of the players just aren't realistic. Gallagher for example signed a extension with the Habs. Galchenyuk got a bridge deal. At some point, I'd imagine Shero will use his D assets to acquire a forward. Gelinas or Merrill are the best candidates. They're not going to trade Larsson or Severson. And Greene is signed long-term. So it won't be him. 


Interestingly, Kucherov remains unsigned with Tampa who has little cap space. I know it's frowned upon but if I had the space, I'd look into offer sheeting him. He's a very skilled player and is only 22. The Bolts might have a problem.


For some reason I thought he was an RFA next year?

I really don't like either.  The first remind me too much of the now former Arizona Coyotes uniforms and not in a good way at all.  I always felt their uniforms and the new San Jose uniforms looked too much like practice jerseys with the non-existant and/or minimalist colors and hem striping patterns.  Plus anything outside of a handful of teams like Detroit do not look that great with the 2-color palate.


The second, black uniform is a little better but I really don't like the route of basically copying the Rangers design.  Tampa, Ottawa and Colorado have already done that and none of them are really impressive.  Honestly if you swapped out the diagonal design with the outline of the state of NJ it would be a lot better in my eyes.


I am still firmly in the camp where I have yet to see a Devils 3rd jersey concept that I liked.


I would actually love to see that.  White state, with Red outline on Black Jersey?

Well he is their first line center and compared to others his deal is actually not bad at all.  Still a big contract but I thought I read that he was asking for $7.1M per year and that would put them over the cap.  If that's the case shouldn't they be close now?  I could be wrong.


Believe they are 425k under, with everyone signed.
