  1. The return of our Swiss savior. Lose every other game left this year and I don't really give a sh!t -- just win these 4 games. LGD!

  3. 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

  6. Another game, another example of where our underlying numbers were good but the result is a loss. Getting really, really, REALLY tired of this. Good on Jack showing some emotion there. That was a BS call and that seemed to fire the team up. The NHL is really turning into a gong show with how bad some of the officiating has been the past few years. Foote looked decent in his limited time. Big body and has a nice shot. The team is completely devoid of shooters. Sharangovich and probably Bratt are the closest things we have now and even then they are 2nd/3rd liners on most tea

  7. My 0-2 record be damned, let’s just score a goal. One, measly, simplistic idea. Puck, in net, behind Ranger net minder. oh and not get called back, that’d be nice. stock up on alcohol, folks, we’re gonna need it.

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  21. 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

  22. 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.

  23. 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

  24. 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

  26. The reason I don't think Fitzgerald handled the Palmieri situation poorly is that there were expectations this season that the Devils could fight for a playoff spot. And even if the team wasn't quite there, I much rather would have had Palmieri on board to come close to it than to give up on the season before it even started. Instead, the team got slammed with COVID, Crawford bounced, and our best player was out for a good chunk of the season. We weren't anywhere close to a playoff spot, but it was definitely not wrong to think that things could have gone the other way. Some more luck on

  27. It's a meh move, but a 3rd round pick is a meh pick. The Devils have a total of two (TWO) players drafted in the 3rd round in the past 15 years that have played more hockey games than Siegenthaler. That's 2 out of 21.

  29. So, I think there's a good chance a team will offer a 1st round pick for Miles Wood. He's scoring, he's gritty, he's fast as hell and he's signed through next season at a tiny cap hit. Is it crazy that I think I'd rather have Miles Wood than another 1st? He's one of those a$$holes you really want on your side.

  32. Yeah more the depressing situation of continually destroying a local hockey team and then just walking away. It's not a good look. Also I feel you should develop a winning culture at every level. Doesn't do young guys harm working out how to win.

  33. If that wasn't as good of an indicator of our drafting results from around 2005 through 2015 I don't know what is.... two former Devils draft picks are reffing today's game because they weren't quite good enough to make the NHL.

  35. I don't think anyone in the organization saw this going any other way after trading the vets the last two season. I mean, just look at this team comparison. The Devils have almost 2500 less games played of experience than the next lowest team. That's incredible. The average age is also a full year younger than the next team.

  37. The most offputting part about the analytics crowd for me is when the analytics don’t gibe with the results on ice it’s always unsustainable bad luck, short sample size or his line mates suck. It’s never maybe these numbers aren’t quite 100% gospel on everything yet, there’s always gotta be an excuse.

  38. 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?

  39. 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

  46. Hall is fvckin complete douche. He has his want money, he has cup contender, he didnt give a normal chance to capitalize him for buffalo. And he understood everything perfectly in advance. While everyone joked that he chose Buffalo - he chose both the money and the opportunity to play in contender. Later. And he's not even shy about admitting it, he's not shy about putting Buffalo in a position where they'll do exactly what he wants. At the same time, he did not give Buffalo what was expected from him, did not achieve the result for which he was paid. I'm so glad we didn't sign it.
