In Topic: Brodeur retires, joins STL front office

27 January 2015 - 08:04 PM

Brodeur was the player that got me into hockey and the Devils full time. I already miss his presence on the ice for better or worse.

 

Assuming Marty is a first ballot, when will he get into the hall?

 

3 seasons away from the game as a player. This season doesnt count obviously. 

 

His first year of eligibility is 2018.

In Topic: Devils sign C Joseph Blandisi to Entry Level Contract

I cant criticize or praise this signing. It could be a diamond in the rough or end up nothing. At any rate, wake me up when he matters in the grand scheme of things.

In Topic: Trade Deadline 2015

Despite that horrible gaffe in the Isles game, I do not want to see Larsson traded. He's shown some progress this year and I feel that his upside and staying here and learning under Stevens will help him. He's 22, its still far too soon to give up on him.

 

Outside of Larsson-Severson, Henrique, Schneider, anyone else can get moved for the right price.

We are doing just enough. Buffalo and Edmonton are getting Eichel and McDavid and no one is stopping them. Teams who are playing poorly this year should be furious at the Oilers. They have sucked for 10 years, have collected a dozen top prospects and are going to steal another one this year and this time the prospect might be so good that they finally start winning. If you can't win after 10 years of top 5 picks, you should have your first round pick confiscated. 

 

Eh, its not a guarantee. Worst team is only guaranteed the 2nd overall this year. Winner of the lottery gets the 1st and its a 20% chance to win the lottery for the worst. I also think Carolina will end up worse than Buffalo. I think the 4th pick is what we'll be slotted into by the time the lottery is over, but we have a shot at #1. I don't think we have a shot at all at #2. We better be sellers at the trade deadline and that could knock us down (or up depending on how you look at it lol) further. If we're the 4th worst team going into the lottery, we have a 9.5% shot at the 1st.

 

I wish it was 2016 lottery rules this year.

 

Oh and this game was just a prototypical Devils game this season. Felt bad for Kinkaid.
