  1. fvck yeah. I got selected so that i can actually buy tickets to go watch the world juniors here in Moncton I'm obviously going to try catch a Luke Hughes game if the US does play in Moncton (and not Halifax) Edit: Actually yeahhhhh. I just secured 2 tickets for the USA-Latvia game (which should be a bloodbath), also 2 for the USA-Slovakia game. If Nemec doesn't make the NHL we might get a Hughes vs Nemec game. Would be amazing. And 2 for USA vs Swtiz. Now hopefully Luke won't get injured and miss the tournament lol

  2. Even though he wasn't the player we hoped we'd acquire and we weren't the team he hoped he was joining, I will look back on his time in NJ fondly. Great teammate, great member of the community, great mentor for Jack, and unbelievable content provider for NJDevs.com. See ya in the booth, Subbie!!

  4. I don’t care if he does or if he doesn’t- between how he played during his call-up last season, and what I’ve seen so far this camp, dude deserves to start the season with the big club. He’s earned it.

  5. I listened to the Ruff interview and while he wasn’t necessarily misquoted, his tone is certainly less dire/serious than the tweet makes it seem.

  6. We’ll be hearing Spaulding’s first call tonight, along with our first look at Vanecek, Haula, Nemec, Smith, Marino, and the line that shall not be named. And I guess the new pa announcer which at this point I’m assuming is the owners using an Alexa held to the microphone.

  8. Didn't catch the whole scrimmage, but that Palat-Hughes-Holtz line could be something special. Holtz had 2 goals, the second of which was him just finding a way to get open as Hughes was attracting all the attention of the defense. Nemec looked good. He had that nice assist posted earlier, and also set up a goal scored by (I think) Haula off a rebound from his point shot. Nemec isn't exactly flashy in the conventional way, by holding onto the puck for a while or skating circles around players, but he does make some nifty moves pretty often. It just comes off so controlled and composed. Dougie and Marino both played well. Marino was really shutting guys down, which was good to see. Siegenthaler of course stood out as the best shutdown guy IMO. Wood was really moving out there too. I am surprised he looked ready to play. Brennan will be our top goalie prospect soon IMO.

  10. i've just been poked in my DMs for being inactive lately lol which is true. So here's a little something slightly hockey related / update and also punk rock related, i believe a few people here are into that. I think i mentioned this before but i'm designing merch for NOFX and Lagwagon, 2 of my all time fav bands and they were both touring in Quebec last week, so i went on a trip to see them in both MTL and Quebec. Got to hangout and catch up a bit with them But the hockey related thing is that NOFX wanted me to design a Montreal exclusive limited edition poster for them. So i decided to do a drunk/high Youppi lol It sold out pretty quick lol I also did the Lagwagon tour poster which was a spoof of the Animal House poster. Got both signed by the bands, good times.

  11. Game against Traktor today - part 1 - part 2 Good defensive game. Very patient. And... I don`t like transitional game and how he works with the puck. For now it is very limited potential. There is a border between him and Okhotiuk for now. Okhotiuk has good start and help with transition, can join the rush because of speed, is good enough with the puck in defensive zone. Misul is very good positionally, but isn`t as attractive on the boards(no one is as attractive on the boards as Okhotiuk), useless with the puck. I understand it is only beggining of the season, but guy didn`t develope what he should develope. I think he will sign another two year deal(and it would be better for him, may be if he will lose the spot, than we can talk again). But for now he isn`t NHL ready and doesnt look like he has real upside. I understand that after this, Misyul`s stocks will fall, although they were not high anyway. But even with a good defensive game, in the NHL it is very important to be useful with the puck on the stick. Shakir was heavily scolded for this, and now we see that Shakir has significantly improved this aspect of the game. I will return to Daniil after some time. Next one is Zakhar Bardakov.

  17. Tonight's my first game back in my own seats since March 10, 2020. Pretty excited for this season simply cause I'll be back at almost all of the games again. In terms of the on ice product this past decade of sh!t has taught me to expect absolutely nothing. Either way, LETS GO DEVILS!!!

  19. Best game I've seen from Bahl. I've been on team Okhotiuk, but maybe it's Bahl who wins that last spot on defense. Foote didn't have a great game, but I thought he had some good moments. Mostly, it was his skating that I was most impressed with. Much improved from last season. He'll need to show some more if he wants a roster spot, though. Bratt was dominant out there. Nico was looking amazing while he was playing too. I was pleasantly surprised by Halonen and Vilen. I had low expectations for both, but I thought they looked decent tonight.

Looks like he’s still a ways off from being cleared for games but him playing the first scrimmage is encouraging.

  23. I’m not ready to say playoffs or bust. The devils are adding 2 MAJOR pieces to the blue line next year. Their “contention window” should start then. This year I just need to see solid improvement across the board. Big steps towards being a competent, middle of the pack NHL team with tremendous future upside.

  24. Here is a rundown of where our prospects are playing this year excluding those in Utica: Czechia- Extralig: Petr Hauser- Sparta Prague Jaromir Pytlik- Kladno Sweden -Allsvenskan: Nikola Pasic- Sodertalje OHL: Chase Stillman- Peterborough Pete's Will be interesting to see if he stays there the whole season. The trade last year did not play out well for him. If the Pete's are looking uncompetitive he could be moved again this year. WHL: Josh Filmon- Swift Current Broncos Finland- Liiga: Jakub Malek- Ilves Topias Vilen- Pelicans Devils did not retain Etu Pakilla from last season but he will be on the same team as Malek. Russia- KHL: Zakhar Bardakov- SKA SKA off to an incredible start this year and are undefeated. Arseni Gritsyuk- Avangard Omsk Avangard are off to a terrible start this year with only one win. Shakir Mukhamadullin- Salavat Ufa Potentially could be paired up with former Devil Ryan Murphy who had one game in 2018. Legacy. Yegor Zaitsev- Dynamo Moscow Daniil Misyul- Locomotive Yasoslav MHL: Artyom Barabosha- KA Moscow Daniel Orlov- MHK Krylia As this thread already attest to , we are lucky to have an expert in our midsts with Guadana. NCAA: Seamus Casey- U of Michigan Luke Hughes - U of Michigan Ethan Edwards- U of Michigan At least it's going to be easy to keep track of these three this year. Samu Salminen - U of Connecticut Was originally slated for Denver but there were some "admission issues" which is a shame. Didn't make much of UConn last year watching Shlaine. Although the found consistency down the stretch. Speaking of which. Artem Shlaine- Northern Michigan U He hit the transfer portal and has an opportunity to start afresh. Viktor Hurtig- Michigan State Will be nice to be able to keep track of him easier this season. Patrick Moynihan- Providence Playing his senior year, he really found a grove last year and was an important player for PC. Case McCarthy- BU He really progressed last year. He isn't the biggest player, but he is solid and plays both ends of the ice well. Charlie Leddy- BC Always fun to see how players from the USNTDP get on when taking the step into the NCAA. Cole Brady- U of Massachusetts Another transfer for this year. He spent last year with the Arizona Sun Devils and basically put up terrible numbers all round. Surprising that UMass have brought him in, but they must see something in him. Might fair better behind a stronger team. Will be doing my best to follow the players this year (leaving the KHL and MHL to Guadana, clearly got it all covered), but the job and family life making it more tricky.

  25. Nico was on 32 Thoughts the other day and he did a great interview. Elliotte and Jeff started by asking him about the captaincy and how that affects his play. They asked how he feels about his defensive prowess and Nico was saying he doesn't care about not being known for offensive numbers as long as he is feared defensively and the team has success. The most interesting bit was the final question Elliotte asked "From a captain's perspective, who are the most low and high maintenance players to deal with?" Said Bratt was low maintenance. For high, he says it's Blackwood. He doesn't hold back that he has had talks with him all season and that it was really tough for him. Says he wants to keep the talks private but he thinks that he is going to come out and have a great season. So yeah, fingers crossed. All in all, Nico just exudes confidence. Crazy to think that he is only 23 after listening to him talk. I think he has spent a lot of time with Patrik Elias, I just get that vibe throughout the whole interview. Good stuff though, worth the listen. Just wish it was longer. (in b4 that's what she said) https://podcast.sportsnet.ca/32-thoughts/ "The European Pack" - Nico starts at 37:00

  37. Jack did a great interview on 32 Thoughts. It's during the "Twelve Carat Rib Injury" episode; starts at 49:00. He talks about his brothers (obviously), makes fun of Zegras for being a NY country club boy. He praises Nico a bunch saying he's underrated because he plays against top lines and it isn't about the numbers for him. Plays through a lot of injuries. He also gets into what part of his game he has been working on the most and he says his shot. References how Matthews has that deadly toe drag snapper so I'm hoping we see Jack blast a few of those this season. In regards to Luke, he mentions that he is still battling the injury but should start skating next week (not sure when this was recorded). Also mentions that he is living by himself this year and is going to bring Luke in next season. Jack is a hype guy by nature but man, after hearing him talk about his brother's potential and having Nemec come in for them to be the 1/2 for a long time, you can't help but get an erection that last longer than 4 hours. https://podcast.sportsnet.ca/32-thoughts/ EDIT: Quinn also does an interview at 33:00. It's cool to hear his perspective on Jack/Luke as well.

  46. I own the military jersey from I think two years ago with Palms on the back because it was FINALLY one that wasn’t army or marines shades of camo colors. The Jersey jersey is ugly for the lone fact it was so easy to appease the fans and they decided to go off the grid and then blame Marty to reduce the heat. It’s grown in many, but I still have zero interest in it and maintain it’s a huge miss by the team. this team should never have red white and blue on our uniform, period, dot. That’s our rivals colors. End of story.
