  1. I hope Hamilton is not reading this board to decide if he should sign here or not

  5. I must be in the minority but I thought that Merkley always looked tidy when he played. He had his flaws but he wasn't the worst player on the ice. 12 points in 31 games isn't too shabby for a fourth liner. But RHD are thin on th ground so it's depth need for depth need I guess.

  6. Christian Jaro actually use to go out with Hamilton's sister and he was best friend with their cousin. He helped Dougie move once too. This obviously means Hamilton is coming here. i totally made this all up

  7. That’s the exact argument he needs to be making. He needs to make a guy like that feel like he is going to be king.

  8. It would. But I have to say, a lot of the league seems to now be looking at the Devils as a team on the upswing like Colorado a few years ago. That might start to filter to free agents as well. Assuming Hamilton doesn't re-sign with Carolina, Fitz may be able to convince him that he's a major part of this team becoming a contender

  9. Being "linked" to a bunch of names doesn't really mean all that much...the Devils have SO much cap space that it makes perfect sense to speculate that they could land one of those players. That being said, Fitz does strike me as not only a guy who will absolutely make a VERY concerted effort to land at least one big target this offsesaon (and in a good way...he's not going to spend money just to do it, or to land some consolation prize that he's not bullish on), but who realizes that he will have to go several extra miles, due to who he works for...I think he absolutely knows the Devils currently aren't one of those teams that can hope to attract players by its brand name alone (the way that the Rangers and some other select teams can). What has me hopeful is that I don't see Fitz pulling a Wilpon-era Mets kind of move, once he decides there's someone that he really wants...for example, when it comes to Hamilton, if he doesn't get him, it won't be because he didn't go above and beyond with an offer, or didn't do all that he possibly could...it will be because Hamilton simply chose to go elsewhere. The Mets used to have a way of doing just barely enough but almost hoping to lose out, so they could say "Hey, we tried, we did have discussions." I think Fitz will have a 7-year, high AAV offer ready to go immediately for Dougie...I just have a feeling that Fitz ain't screwing around here.

  11. First thing off the bat: there exists no MB3’s that dislike you even the slightest. I disliked your “if you eliminate the 16 games where Kyle Palmieri didn’t score, he’s a goal-per-game player” takes but you are the class of this forum and there should be no mistaking that. I’ve been lucky enough to meet you in real life and can attest to everyone that he is just as genuine a person in reality as he is on this forum. I couldn’t be picked out of a crowd in real life. This forum to me is different than it is to most (at least I think it is, but that might just be my main-character-syndrome). I did not grow up with any Devils fans as friends. Barely anyone in my circle liked hockey, and those that did liked the Rangers. My dad loved the Devils for ME. He and I had season tickets so that he could spend time with me, and I adore him for it — but since I’ve moved away, I’m not sure if he’s watched more than ten total games. So this place is the entirety of my Devils fandom. During games I don’t have a buddy to text “wow fvck this guy” so I post it here. With my Devils fans friends Ive had for a decade. I joined here when I was fvcking fourteen years old. I’m about to be 30 with a kid on the way. I’ve lived in 5 different cities and this is the one constant in my life. You sons of bitches. It’s why I probably get too defensive or gatekeepy when new guys like glenwo show up, call us guppies, mock our best posters, and leave. I love this place and I love you losers.

  13. You’ve always been one of my favorites, my man. I like funny people, and you are probably the funniest poster here (sorry mfitz you’re a close 2nd). I’ll take that over folks being miserable and negative 24/7. Life’s too short for that sh!t.

  14. yes I too find it absolutely appalling that people change their opinion on a player after a full calendar year of poor and uninspired play.

  15. Bro it was a meme. Take your pomposity and go fvck yourself I took you off my ignore list after 4 years and it only took you less than 48 hours to get back on it. Don't know why I even bothered. Your self-importance knows no bounds. You are literally THE MOST annoying fvcking poster I've ever met on ANY board. Pompous fvcking douchebag. fvcking pathetic.

  21. In high school we had a sub who would pass around an attendance sheet. She would catch all of the “Ben Dover” stuff and wouldn’t read those, but would read out Harley Davidson, Edward Van Halen, etc. I remember she covered our band class once and 45-50 kids wrote about 120 extra names on the list lol.

  24. One time the bagel shop that I usually buy bagels from was simply unexpectedly closed...and a second bagel shop (that's solid but not my fave) was beyond packed, so I went to a nearby DD's to buy my daughter a bagel (she was maybe 7 at the time...she likes 'em plain, nothing on them at all). She ate it, but gave a WTF is THIS?! look that made it clear that I should not buy her another DD bagel ever again. Lesson learned.

  32. Can I quote you on this when you have your annual off-season meltdown because the Devils haven't done anything fourteen minutes into Free Agency? Or does this logic only work for those who fall on the pessimist side of the glass-half-full debate?

  34. It wasn't long ago that Devils fans, including ones here, were calling Merkley part of our future after his first 4 games. He was as expendable as they come and he was the one I really wanted the Kraken to take in the expansion draft.

  36. And all I'm saying is that a team with mountains of cap space being linked to a list of names doesn't necessarily mean that the GM is being active...but in this particular case, I'm definitely of the very firm belief that Fitz is going to be as active as it gets (even if he doesn't land any of his top targets), regardless of who the Devils have been linked to in rumor mills. Also in this particular case, it's not like UFAs can be signed yet anyway, so can't do anything there just yet. And I think that Fitz really wants to see how he makes out with the UFA market before exploring trades. I do think he has some kind of plan, and a feel for who is a realistic option for him...in other words, if he comes away relatively empty, I don't think it going to be due to lack of preparation or effort. If he's looking strictly at UFA options, obviously he can only be so active there, for now...last thing he'll want to deal with is tampering charges. But it won't surprise me one bit (as soon as it's legal) if he calls Hamilton's and Coleman's agents with ironclad "I'm not fvcking around, the Devils want YOU" offers and gets those deals done quickly...and if neither party wants the Devils, he'll pivot to some other plan that won't be as sexy, but will still make plenty of sense and will help the Devils improve. And on one more note...if Fitz throws legit money at guys like Hamilton and gets shot down...man, it really is going to feel like the Devils (and/or NJ itself) are that undesirable of a destination. Yeah, they play in Newark, which never be thought of as glamorous...but there's a legit GM in place (he'd absolutely get another gig if he wasn't here...he's been highly thought of for years), the Devils both have the money to spend and a willingness to spend it, there's a crop of promising young players who hopefully will soon start to hit their peak years...if it has be built solely from within and through trades, so be it I guess, but it really feels like a guy like Hamilton is the right player at the right time for this team...and he'll get paid extremely well to boot. It's not like the Devils ever had him of course, but if he shoots down a legit offer...man, it's going to feel like a wide-toed boot to the balls (at least initially).

  41. I really think he thought he had more power than he did, over reached on a ton of demands, and turned nearly the entire league against him. There is almost literally no excuse for not having come out of Wednesday with a kings ransom and he only moved Tyler freaking Pitlick. dude choked.
