In Topic: A Thru F: Rank Shero/Conte's Job At 2015 NHL Entry Draft

Today, 09:32 AM

It's impossible to truly know at this time, but I'd give Shero a solid B+.  Like the Zacha pick and the trade for Palmieri.  Seemed to go for skill and speed over size with the later round picks.  The Blackwood pick was a head scratcher, but he did move down and pickup an extra 3rd next year so that's a bit of a plus.


I just hope they don't rush Zacha into the NHL.  If he's ready, I'm fine with it.  But he shouldn't be up here just because this team is terrible.  He needs to develop appropriately, something this organization has largely failed to do with its prospects over the last decade.

Merrill doesn't have the same value as Reinhart. It would have had to be Severson or Larsson shipped out to make that trade.

Like this trade. Young and fast forward that can score a bit. Nice move by Shero.

I want no part of belesky though. Hopefully he stays in ANA.

In Topic: Devils 2015-2016 Schedule

Schedule looks pretty good.  Half of the games on a Fri., Sat. or Sun., and a few afternoon games mixed in.  Not too many back to backs, which would help if this team had a shot at being any good.


Anything was better than last season with the ridiculous number of home games we had during the 2nd half of the season.  It seemed like I was at the Rock every other night.

Kind of feel like they could completely do away with shootouts if they go 3v3 OT. Have a hard time seeing many games go beyond the time it takes to play 3v3 OT and do the shootouts. 


Last season, the AHL used a 3 on 3 following the 4 on 4 OT format, before going to shootouts.  According to NHL Network, 75% of games that went to 3 on 3 ended there, so the # of shootouts should decrease dramatically next season.
