  1. If @Triumphisn't around for the Race to the Bottom thread, this will have to do for now. Scheduled for July 23-24 Difficult year for evaluating prospects, but another year where the Devils can expect to pick in the top 10. The Devils currently have: Two first round picks (NJ, NYI) One second round pick (NYI) One third round pick (NJ) One fourth round pick (NJ) One fifth round pick (BUF) One sixth round pick (NJ) One seventh round pick (ARI) I haven't been able to keep up with many of this year's prospects, but here are a few quick thoughts: Owen Power: 6

  2. Rules go into effect this year, but the restrictions on how many times you can win isn't being grandfathered in, count starts with this year, so we're still eligible to win.

  3. I watched most of last night's game. Difference between the Rangers was that their best players got it done, ours didn't. After the game, the advanced stat cult was out in full force showing graphs and charts about how we outplayed the Rangers. Sorry, but that is a prime example of why I cannot take that crowd that seriously. They really do not understand how silly they sound by declaring in a game where we not only lost, but got shut out. I cannot begin to count how many losses we have amassed in the past 2-3 seasons where we out-adv stated the other team only to lose. At this point

  4. I am just tired of that crowd busting out the charts and graphs after games like last night. I don't care about how great they did in some metrics, and especially so when we got shut out. I cannot even begin to name the amount of times this season alone where this has happened, but I am sick of it.

  5. Re: Wallstedt, we're very high on him over at Future Considerations, #2 on our last ranking. I think Wallstedt makes a world of sense for Detroit, they have a marquee piece at every position in their pool except for goaltender and Steve Yzerman is the one who drafted Andrei Vasilevskiy in Tampa, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Wings bite on Wallstedt in the Top 5. For the Devils, my main hope is that we can grab one of the big defensemen - Luke Hughes, Owen Power, or Brandt Clarke. There are folks at FC who are also very high on Simon Edvinsson, but I'm not as convinced. Luke Hughes is

  6. Just a tid bit of info I’ve noticed . in a great percentage of the devils losses . They have out-shot , out-hit , won more faceoffs and have had less penalty minutes then third opponents. This goes to show the defense has too many breakdowns and /or the goaltending just fukcin sucks and we can’t put the biscuit in the basket . it’s a shame that all these good intangibles aren’t leading to wins . classic example last night

  7. Loving Severson and McLeod not taking any sh!t from these a$$holes. Especially the latter stepping in for his smaller teammate (and backup weed dealer).

  8. As I like to say, advanced stats are predictive of what SHOULD happen. If you have the most 5v5 shot opportunities, statistically, you should wind up with the most 5v5 goals or assists. The problem I have with them is that what SHOULD happen and what DOES happen are not the same. Not in hockey. There are too many variables to consider most advanced stats predictive of anything. If you want to use them to show something like a player’s overall effort, that might work. But honestly, if effort doesn’t turn into anything, what good is that? I mean I guess we said the same thing

  11. I don't understand bringing up his salary when we are nowhere near the cap and you're not the one cutting the checks. As fans, what difference does it make? He's expensive filler preventing young guys from being tasked with more than they can handle early on in their career.

  12. Admittedly I did not watch tonight's game since I'm still at work but I think PK has been fine this year. He's settled into quietly eating the tough minutes and while he's being severely overpaid, his contract ends after next year long before we need the cap space. Why let a rookie get absolutely destroyed with tough minutes and possibly hurt his development curve when you can overpay PK to be the guy to get caved in on with the heavy lifting?

  13. You guys that can’t wait to get rid of Subban must be looking forward to seeing a lot of Carrick and Tennyson... In a perfect world Bahl, Okhotyuk, and Walsh will all be ready soon, but you certainly can’t count on that. And if we draft Luke Hughes like so many want to, he’ll be in college for a year or two.

  14. I know it’s weird to harp on defense in a game we’re currently being shutout, but thank the gods this draft is d heavy at the top. We need another blue chip piece to add to Ty on the blue line in the worst way.

  16. It's the equivalent of the participation trophy, we didn't win, we're again near the basement in points but look at this it says we're not as bad as our record says we are so let's run with that. Damn the bad luck that's been around now for how many years?

  17. Outstanding! Spreadsheet hockey, when they start awarding actual points in the league standings for that stuff we will jump way up towards the top of the league. Until then who cares we sit damn near the bottom.

  18. It’s not even the worst contract in the division. Jeff Skinner makes $10 mil a year to score 5 goals 3 assists in 38 GP. Subban has been much better this season. People are just dumping on him after a bad game.

  19. from what i could gather using common sense in response to an emotional knee jerk post is not an effective approach He's right about PK though lol to be fair PK might be the most useless 9million player in NHL history even

  23. This game is going to be a pain. Kept them quiet most of the night. Once Bratt shot directly into the pads 20 seconds in, this had 2-0 loss written all over it.

  28. Severson is a true Devil if for no other reason than his sheer hatred of the Rangers.

  29. I don’t even know if they have their place CR.... they used to have ‘their place’. And then nerds who never played sports started running teams across pro sports, and all of a sudden this sh!t has taken on a much bigger role than it should ever have taken on. I have two eyes. I played and coached hockey for several years. I know what my eyes tell me when I watch games. And I don’t need advanced stats to tell me what’s happening. Expected goals? Assists? Shots? Shot attempts? Who fvcking cares. How many ACTUAL goals? Assists? Shots? Shot attempts? Because that’s all that fvcking matters

  41. That's basic coverage. I know you don't like Nas, and I'd also like to see another assistant coach, but Kuok has to cover his man/the point. You learn that in Pee-Wee.
