I loved this.  Makes me very thankful to have had Lou as the GM of the Devils.

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.

If there's one major departure Shero takes from the old regime, I hope it's this. Paying a guy top dollar and seeing him actually produce would be such a welcome change.

 

Top dollar?  His cap hit is like 27th in the league for centers and that number will go up, once a few more centers get new contracts.  We aren't a cap team, I have no issues with his contract.

What about Blandisi? Besides his injury or whatever I thought he supposedly had a strong camp.

 

I was thinking the same thing, someone hopefully someone surprises us at forward. 

 

I read HF sometimes just because of sheer amount of people posting and most are predicting the Devils to battle Canes for last in the conference.  While I don't think that will be the case with CS in net, I get a little less enthusiastic about the upcoming season.  I do look forward to the young D, and also do have hope that someone will surprise us at forward.
