In Topic: GDT: Winnipeg @ Devils 7:00 PM

Yesterday, 08:52 PM

Only saw the third period which I take it was our best so can't really appreciate how bad the first and second went.

Hopefully this is a starting point. It will be hard to be worse than the Devils were at there worst points tonight.

In Topic: 10,000 Days working for Lou Lamariello

We've never had these inside peeks at our own organization (or at least how things were done) up until now. I find it fascinating.


This is what I was excited about when it was announced Lou was going to the Leafs.

Also... I guess this fits in this thread as well.


TSN did an investigation into the increased use of cocaine by NHL players:




The story doesn't really live up to the headline. But it's somewhat interesting.

Mark Spector wrote a piece that says Torres had only played 15 NHL games since his last suspension for a hit to Jarret Stoll. Despite that, Torres is not considered a repeat offender under the CBA because of the amount of time that has passed since that incident (mostly due to injuries that kept Torres out of the game). Assuming all that is true, there is still a lot of inconsistencies in the NHL's messaging on head shots.

I know the people I quoted before's intention was about how this team is hard to nail down.  And I will also admit that I am not one for finding the silver lining.  But I just think it's odd to see people even mentioning playoffs after the offseason we went through.  Everyone's talking about rebuild and the dearth of talent Lou left since he left, but then all of a sudden I hear playoffs.  I know people give teams a ceiling, a floor and a likelihood for their upcoming season and they were saying it is possible to make the playoffs.  After a frustrating offseason, I just don't even see our ceiling as even a playoff team and when I saw it, my reaction was that picture.


My post was kind of confusing but I was trying to say that we have a lot of players on the roster that are unknowns.


Boucher, Josefson, Merrill, Severson, Kalinin, Gelinas, Larsson to an extent, Zacha if he's around, Moore... Until we know what kind of seasons these guys are going to have it's hard to predict where the Devils will end up.


I disagree that making the playoffs is an impossibility with this group if a handful of those guys pull out good seasons. And I'm talking like 8th place here, not winning the division.
