  1. This will probably get buried but I'm an architect and I helped design Hank's apartment a few years ago. The nicest dude you've ever met, but there's this one story that always sticks with me. We're in his kitchen with his wife Therese and he comes home from practice. He's wildly attractive btw, but that's unrelated. So we're mid conversation and he's kinda pawing at his shirt a little bit all awkward, he's in obvious discomfort. "Go ahead", his wife says to him. He smiles and nods and says "excuse me" and heads over to the kitchen sink. At this point I'm watching him like a hawk bec

  2. The Devils traded 7 games of Wayne Simmonds for what is now likely their best LD. He’s injury prone. But there’s legitimately zero risk, and the reward is a “oh holy sh!t yeah” type of reward. Phenomenal job, Fitz.

  5. Not to mention, if we catch lightning in a bottle and he actually is healthy next season and he plays how he’s capable (he’s been a legitimate top-4 defenseman on a playoff hockey team for a few years now), he immediately becomes one of the best players available at the deadline. seriously, if you’re a devils fan and your reaction to this is anything other than “let’s GO!!”, reevaluate your expectations.

  6. Let me just add here, this place gets slow in the offseason, even during a crappy season, but days like Free Agent day its always fun to hang here and BS with you guys while we wait for something amazing to happen.

  9. Some moves make a ton of sense, others are freaking mind-blowing. Lehner is a mistake, Tartar bust, Stastny meh, Patches good, Stone insanely good. EDIT: EJ on NHL Network explained it best: they're a dog chasing their tail right now. Reacting to what they think they need instead of relying on what was working. I know hes younger but give me Flower over Lehner any day of the week.

  10. If we can get a proper #2, I can’t imagine Blackwood is going to play more than 55ish games this upcoming season. I don’t think they’re looking to overwork him. I’d love to see them go out and get Markstrom, but I suspect he will be looking for a true #1 spot and can probably find that. I am just very anxious to see Lundqvist get signed by the Capitals to get that nightmare scenario out of my head. How the fvck would I be able to root for that guy after all of these years of hate?? Fortunately, I think he’ll be Cup chasing rather than just looking to stay close to NY.

  16. i assume Krug's camp is waiting for Pietrangelo to make a move. We're NOT landing Pietrangelo obviously... so i'd play the card that "we've wanted you from the start" and try to appeal to his feelings lol

  23. Okay here's my idea and hear me out: Acquire MAF & our 2021 2nd back. Sign Sergachev to a 7x8 offer sheet that someone speculated would force Tampa into a no-win situation. We'd have the assets to cover it in every respect. Fiction/Dreaming can be fun, right?

  26. The fact that it was only for a 5th makes it feel more like a UFA signing, where the Devils signed him for one year and $4.6 million (so basically, the money saved against the cap in 2020-21 by buying out Cory wound up being used here, plus another $600k). Looking at it this way reminds me of when Simmonds was signed as a UFA, in that it's easy at first to feel like $4.6 million is kind of a lot for a guy like Murray...until you factor in that the Devils have loads and loads of cap space (and bought themselves even more for the next couple of seasons with Schneider's buyout). Basically, for

  29. This Josh Anderson contract may be the new worst contract in the league. This is a future buyout waiting to happen. Woof, is it bad.

  34. Zemgus Girgensons signed a 3 year deal with Buffalo. I mention this for the sole reason that the dude's name sounds like its spoken in the fake Swedish language spoken by the Swedish Chef on the Muppets. Admit it, you just said it that way.

  44. Reminds me of the Vatanen trade (obviously for a much lower cost) - a second pairing guy who is going to come into the Devils organization and be one of their top defenseman. Let's see if he rises to the challenge like Sami did. I'm a fan of moves like this, and I like Murray. A change of scenery could be what Murray needs. Let's hope for a healthy Devils career for him.

  46. Btw Holtz play in poor team without big money in budgette and help from city goverment. That mean Holtz will have big role, big minutes. In adult league, may be second best in Europe. Where Rossi is playing now? Nowhere.

  47. From every interview, it sounds like Torey Krug is looking for a payday more than he's looking for a winning team. If he even picks up the phone for NJ, the Devils should excitedly overpay the fvck out of him. He's a right-handed shot, a play-driver, has a nastiness to his game that's easy to love. At 29 years old he's still young enough to fit with this prime. Is he worth 8m/year? fvck no. But who cares, the Devils aren't going to be near the cap for a few years anyway.
