  1. Sure, let’s start with Edmonton. Roughly 6 years into their rebuild, they had amassed Sam Gagner, Jordan Eberle, Magnus Paajarvi, and then ripped off three straight top picks in Hall, RNH and Yak. Their “game” was so good that even after adding Nurse, Drai and McDavid in the next three seasons, they traded the best of the original group to us for Adam Larsson “one for one” because they were still struggling so badly. Lou left this team with absolutely nothing and while we don’t look great right now, all the best players on the team are the young ones who are most important to our future.

  3. Losing to much better team is not a cancer. It’s a reality. Devils is a more young, less experienced team. We can’t do anything real against top-4 team. It is a reality, when your top guys are 19-22 yo boys. Deal with it and slow down your expectations.

  4. Now let’s tackle Toronto. Are we just going to gloss over the fact that they missed the playoffs for over a decade after the full year shutdown and that there was whole rebuild under Brian Burke that had to be burned to the ground after it failed? You can sit here and tell me how great their perimeter finesse scorers look this season in what’s probably about year 17 since they first started to rebuild and I will remind you that they couldn’t even win a fvcking play-in series against a Columbus Blue Jackets team last year that lost a ton after going all in, in 2019

  5. I don't feel like anyone on this team hates losing. It feels like losing and being pushed around has become totally acceptable here

  8. You’re welcome. Since you claimed to have seen many teams rebuild and “we are by far the worst”, it seems like it was needed. I’m not even sure why you think the rebuild is going that poorly, because we’re not in the top half of the standings yet? Would you prefer we were more like the Rangers where the vets are doing all of the scoring and yet they’re still out of a playoff spot? Unfortunately Nico has been out all season but I’ve seen major progress from Hughes, Zacha, Smith, Wood and Blackwood, Bratt has been trending in the right direction lately and Bastian, Sharangovich, Maltsev

  10. Honestly, I think the players take too much criticism when management deserves the blame for the way the team is built. All you need is one or two guys who play a rugged style and bring it regularly, and we just don't have it. And when you're playing 4 games in 7 days, you need players to provide an emotional spark. We are sorely missing a David Clarkson or Ryan Carter. We got Andreas Johnsson.

  11. How many times are you going to get your brains bashed in before coming up swinging? Run the goalie, dirty hit, scrum every post whistle. Not seeing it. This team does not have the skill to play with this little of sandpaper.

  12. Just started watching. Missed last one. Starting to lose patience with Hughes. Too many stupid, passive passes. Too soft on the puck.

  14. The one scenario that has no business happening is Palms being kept and then allowed to leave for no return. Given that this team isn’t making the playoffs, that would make no sense. Get what you can. I think there’s a fair chance he winds up back here anyway.

  17. While I do want Buffalo to win a game, selfishly I'm glad they didn't beat boston today, since we play them 2 in a row. They already have enough incentive to beat us.

  18. As good as a season Hall had in NJ for his hart season. I'm also glad he didn't beat Elias franchise record of the most point in a season. Elias deserves to still be the guy and not a dude who came in for a short period. Now let's hope one of the kids do beat it eventually though

  19. You make a good point. To back up your point I would add this: I was looking at a listing of average ages for teams last week and the Devils were the second youngest team in the NHL. Consider how little weight our vets are pulling and you get an idea of just how “young” this team really is. Consider how some of the best players of the past played at the ages our best young players are at: even HoF players rarely could make the sort of impact we would need right now to be successful, let alone carry a team! I dont know what the future holds, but it is much bright than it has bee

  23. That in itself says a lot because I'm pretty sure his level of fu&k you barely registers against most teams yet it's the most we have to offer. I hate that it continues to be a reoccurring theme year after year that we're soft as baby sh!t. I'm not looking to turn the clock back to the 70's but it would be great to be tougher to play against. Just a piss poor game across the board, these still sting when they don't show up and aren't really competitive.

  24. Drives me insane. They just lie down and take it. It’s infuriating. No one on this team plays with an edge. Miles Wood used to, what the hell happened? Doesn’t help not having Bastian either, he’s one of the few who brings some ‘fvck you’.

  28. i know that was a jack mistake, but God how i hate Johnsson sometimes. He really dont understand where he should be on the ice in different moments. This washington shift was begin from Johnsson mistake in offensive zone in the end of the great shift from zajac line.

  30. I was thinking the same...like a classified section just for generating donations. Even if it’s just a thread in the main board (not enough people visit the Marketplace). Did it on another site like I mentioned. It worked.
