    Agreed, and I'm not a fan of the yo-yo style of pulling players in and out of the lineup. I don't see the point of sitting Mueller down for just one game and giving Yakolev a few minutes of ice time. I've said it before but I'll say it again, if you're gonna give someone an opportunity, give it to them. This wishy washy bullsh!t of shuffling guys in and out after one game is maddening.

    Bratt is as valuable as Nylander. He has almost 2 years left on his ELC. The Devils should be not even be thinking about trading him and if he had been a first round pick none of you guys would be thinking about it either.

    I'm still more impressed with Nico's full season as a 200ft player who put up 52 pts at 18 years old having never played professional hockey in NA over Pettersson's really impressive offense in a handful of games

    He’s played all of 10 games, had a ridiculous shooting percentage in those 10 games, and is built like a fvcking string bean that happens to be on a water diet. The Canadian media needs a chill pill.

    What a ridiculous article. It’s ‘clear’ that Pettersson is better than Nico? What, why? Because he’s had a fast start to his ten-game NHL career? Meanwhile Nico only helped his linemate win the Hart and centered the top line on a playoff team as an 18_yr old. Lazy Canadian bias.

    Sid and Co vs. Devils-lite Binghamton should be interesting.

    Nico out, Boyle out, Zacha up and in, Lovejoy in....
  10. 2 points
    Yes, but it will be because a defenseman from the opposing team mishandles the puck and puts it in their own empty net, and Zacha just happens to be the last guy who touched it.

    With both Boyle and Hischier out I’m s little disappointed that McLeod didn’t get called up with Zacha.

    I don't think Butcher is slow at all. He might not be a Niedermayer, but he can move the puck.

    Here is Marty’s speech. It was excellent. Fitting that he is welcomed into the Hall by the two HOF pillars of our blue line.

    Those all seem like Devils-related items to me.

    Just a friendly reminder if you could use the Amazon referral link when shopping on Amazon. Amazon had ended their Advertising program for small businesses, so I had to switch to the Verizon Ad platform which hasn't paid as well as the Google or Amazon platforms. We aren't hurting yet, but a nice drop into the NJDevs account from sales would help. Amazon Sales As always, thanks!

    Please just win this one...or try to look a lot more competitive. Will be there tonight with a bud, also going on Saturday with my wife and daughter. LGD!

    Just to see what he’s got at the nhl level. Who knows, maybe he outplays Zacha and earns a spot. But it is probably best to let him stay in bingo and continue to develop properly.

    Roger I'm sure will tell us everything's fine. Because that seems to be his MO...us little people don't know what we're really seeing at all. Arrogant prick.

    I think I saw in one of the e-mails the Devils sent out for tickets to this game that the patches will be sold in the Devils Den.

    Also the food drive starts tonight, it says bring a minimum of 2 items but please bring at least 10 items. I hate how they lowered the number of items. You get 2 free tickets for a future game, the least ya can do is bring $10 worth of items.

    Yeah not sure about that. May only be like how they did with the Pruential Center Opening Night patches in 2007 where only the gamers had them or like the Patty's Last Lap patches where only the players got them. I don't remember them doing this with Stevens or Niedermayer either.

    Patches or the gamers? Not sure about the gamers. I know they are auctioning off the HHOF patched ones from Friday though.

    I need to stop looking at the standings myself because it's depressing, BUT....one thing I did notice is just how much of a logjam there is, in basically the entire NHL. To me there's really only like 2-3 teams in the entire league that stand out and apart from the competition - the rest of them, we have a couple games in hand on most, and are only like 3-5 points back of. It's nuts. I know it's early, but I can't remember a season in the last decade or so where there seemed to be this much parity. I'm not sure if it's a good or a bad thing. Looking at the standings though, and checking the scores night in and night out, I can't find many teams where I look and say "Oh yeah, they're definitely terrible", or "Oh yeah, they're definitely going to win".

    Its clear he's been better in the handful of games this season. That's about it.

    I disagree with this. He showed it a couple times last year. Not Miles Wood speed, but he isn't slow. I agree with this.

    Zacha with the hat trick and we win 4-3 on an OT winner by Noesen. Assisted by Zacha.

    They also put him on that pairing to set him up to have more offensive opportunity by not having to play against top lines. Yea, he isn't ready to take on the other team's top talent shift for shift yet, however it isn't like there isn't some strategy in putting him on that paring either.

    Really glad I didn't bother watching this last night. I didn't know the score but I wasn't expecting a good outcome and I didn't want to come down from the high of being at the Red Bulls win last night that advanced them to the Eastern Conference Finals to face Atlanta so I saved the game for tonight and just finished it. Just feel bad for Cory at this point, it feels like he's never going to get a win. I have been to a lot of sporting events in my life and last night is easily in the top 10 craziest crowds I've ever been in. The crowd was absolutely rabid and I loved it and I'm so happy I didn't watch this mess of a game last night and have it dampen my mood. I'll be in Atlanta for the first leg, just haven't figured out if I'm flying or driving but probably going to sell or use a buyback for the Islanders game on the Friday before because this team certainly isn't worth missing an extra day in Atlanta at this point. Check it out...

    Butcher scored a point every other game in his rookie season and is young and raw yet people want to cast him off already after a slump in which blown coverages mainly from our forwards are killing our defensive record...man oh man. Mind you we don’t have defensemen growing on trees we can just replace him with. Also Nylander isn’t the answer to our problems. Even with Matthews he’s not a ppg player.

    Getting back a player like Nylander who scores 20 goals and 60 points a season is not “kicking Butcher to the curb.”

    I wasn't talking about anything you said and everyone is obviously entitled to their opinion on who they'd rather send the other way. I know you don't get valuable assets without giving something else up in return. I just don't think there is any indication that Butcher's "serious limitations" are anything that can't be figured out as he gets more time playing at the NHL level. The negativity is just a result of his recent play being in the forefront of everyone's minds, but it is unfair to hold him 100% to that when the entire team is struggling. It isn't like he's alone right now.

    Up until last night, I was on board with Cory and KK splitting time. As of now, I am totally ok with giving KK the starting role and making Cory his backup, even if he's a $6 million backup. I feel like a $6m backup goalie is better than a $6m starter fvcking up all of our games. You have to pay him either way, let him get paid for not fvcking up games.

    Maybe not yet, but he's got some great vision out there and really the only offensive bright spot outside of the first line. His pass to Greene in the preseason in Winnipeg and his pass to Seney last night for example. I'd just be careful giving away a 20 year old that is already showing more than anyone else that age in our pipeline.

    Butcher/Bratt and a 1st 2020 is a huge deal for us. Butcher is a bonafide offensive defenseman, young. He's got a ton of value.
