  1. Not to mention this team literally does have a “Swiss Army Knife” of it’s own.

  2. Idk if I have ever seen you happy about anything. This is definitely a day to remember.

  3. He was my top choice once Berube was off the market. Nice work by Fitz here. If he can get the goalie deal right we’ll be in business.

  4. All kidding aside anyone who’s not at least somewhat happy about this… ”AAAAAAA YOU JUST KNOW HE’LL KEEP LINDY!” ”JUST WATCH HIM HANG ONTO GREEN!” ”IT’S GOTTA BE WOODCROFT BECAUSE THE DEVILS ARE SLAVES TO METRICS!” Think Fitz did pretty well here, all things considered.

  5. I am mostly positive over this news. I hope Keefe and assistant coaches implements some fundamental defense/offensive systems. And for the love of god hire a good powerplay coach too.

  6. I like it. I was going to be relieved if it wasn't Woodcroft either way, but I really like Keefe. He'll go far with our young core.

  7. They had absolutely nothing on defense outside of Morgan Rielly his entire time there. You can’t win in the playoffs like that. He now has two young studs to mold who both have superstar potential, plus Dougie.

  8. No idea if he’ll be more successful here but I wouldn’t hold the Leafs playoff failures against him. I’ve always felt that was more of a roster construction issue more than anything.

  9. I'm pretty pleased if it's Keefe. Fitz absolutely has to get his player recruitment right now (especially goalie) to give him the best chance to make this work.

  11. Maurice's response "Nobody's been arrested yet." will outlast this series in playoff history.

  12. Ya know who came up short in the playoffs every year of his career until he came here? Pat Burns.

  14. Happy to see his name isn’t ruff or Greene honestly, I think this guy has a lot of potential to be good for our group. Next season will tell, let’s hope they come out looking like a brand new team all together. Now let’s see what happens for a legitimate goalie.

  15. Fantastic hire. Was my second choice after Berube.

  16. He won’t have Marner and Tavares to use as scapegoats for the Toronto media… wait… he just needs to know reporters favorite things and let two have friendly banter with one another. i like the hire. Hasn’t missed the playoffs as a coach, for us, that’s a huge start, then figure out winning. i think our core is overall better than the regular season phenom core 4

  18. Nice highlights video on Michael Brandsegg-Nygard a.k.a the Norwegian fella. Right shot, number 28 in red or white. He's second in points for Norway in the world championship tournament so far, and first in goals. I like him for the Devils not just because he could be the BPA at 10, but he definitely addresses a team need. This guy is physical, fast, and can shoot. In a men's league, he really does not look out of place as far as his physicality goes. I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up being one of the first few guys to jump into the NHL, and he would absolutely be a welcome addition to the Devils in the next couple of years.

  24. That's obviously part of the reason that he became available in the first place, but it's fair to wonder if roster construction was more of a factor; his teams tended to be top-heavy, with too much of the cap being eaten up by a relatively small number of players. At least the cap situation here is currently a bit better (though of course we'll have to see what Luke and Nemec get once their ELCs are up), so Fitz can spend a bit more on solid depth "glue" guys. I like the move considering who else was out there and like I said, I think the guy's track record (especially in the regular season) warranted him getting another chance somewhere. But of course, only time will tell as to whether or not it works out.

  25. I predict we will see a post titled something like “Queef stinks!” Before 2025

  26. Nichols talked to a couple of Toronto reporters about Keefe: https://newjerseyhockeynow.com/2024/05/23/toronto-reporters-react-to-devils-sheldon-keefe-hire-the-players-will-love-him-jack-hughes/?fbclid=IwZXh0bgNhZW0CMTEAAR1wvCE20yUWZMFCWmrKeSeYc1v-0OgagzqKcUJgT3zI4ioLR2cI3uhFTCU_aem_AUJ5NSMcyQ2MawZPOh7Lq7Zy3rE1SaOv2ZtCOAPT5iex2maN0lDtYPVPV-KtNr2Tcve381MBAiApbjdugAkbuxjX

  27. If Fitz gets a goalie and perhaps some improved depth - AND IF THEY CAN STAY HEALTHY - Keefe could take this team back to the playoffs easily imo.

  28. In a lot of ways I think this was a relatively “safe” hire and I’m 100% ALL for that. The LAST thing that I wanted from Fitz for the new coach was something outside the box or someone with not much experience. Sometimes the best option is the one that’s right in front of you, that doesn’t have to be overthought.

  29. Keefe is probably still away with his family, MGMT probably wants to let him wrap up his vacation

  30. He did a great job in Toronto. The Leafs issue was not coaching. They actually looked really well coached this year and against Boston. The problem was the roster construction. One of the best coaches in the league imo. Tremendous hire.

  32. Really happy with this. Keefe has done well as a coach at both the AHL and NHL levels. Not his fault that Toronto never had the roster to get it done. Posting this clip and another to try to get people excited about the hire Good intermission speech, meanwhile Lindy was probably taking smoke breaks between periods https://youtu.be/jSggUHzr2lA?si=JWpR6GF2Ab6ci6Cg Imagine your coach working the refs a bit

  33. The Leprechaun is clearly on his way to becoming a pretty good player, but nice to see him have such a colossal fvck up.

  34. If that 3rd one doesn’t scream larger issues idk what does. I guess I forgot Babcock never even won a round with them.

  35. I like it. Guy has done enough to get a fresh start with a new talented roster. No complaints, even with the Leafs playoff follies with him as coach.

  36. This has to be one of the most attractive jobs in hockey. One beat writer who is muzzled by the club, excellent travel, great place to live, and of course a team set up to win for years to come (pending a goalie).

  37. I don’t disagree; Dallas is loaded. I truly believe Dallas and Florida are the two best teams in hockey. A series between those two teams would make for terrific hockey, and it would likely go 7.

  38. No it won’t. It will be Florida and Dallas because they are the two best teams. I expect them both to dispatch the respective frauds who are their opponents.
