  1. Great quotes from Jack: "I think this contract shows that the team is extremely invested in me, and I'm really dedicated to the organization. Mutually, we're both really excited." "I will have lived here at least 11 years by the end of this contract," Hughes said. "I've dedicated most of my adult life to New Jersey." "There are a lot of 86 (jerseys) out there when I look around," Hughes said. "The fans really appreciate me here. I'm just extremely thankful to be a New Jersey Devil. The fans are awesome. They've treated me like gold ever since I've come here. "Now I have to return the favor and be a star for the next decade. I know it'll come, and I know it'll happen. It's an extremely exciting time in New Jersey."

  2. I kinda wish they’d have let Ruff choose his own coaching staff instead of saddling him with these guys.

  3. While we’re at it, can Marty work with Blackwood on his rebound control? Much more productive use of his time than designing terrible jerseys.

  4. Humble brag post: This morning, I completed 1,000 running miles for the year. I started 2021 with the goal of passing 616 from last year, and set 1k as my reach goal. After January I was well on pace, then slipped a bit in February & March. June and July were awesome running months, as was September. By the start of November, I was within 90. A trail run, half marathon and a casual Veterans Day 11 miles later, here I am. Not bad for a guy who used to LOATHE running until about a decade ago.

  6. Went with other on “most disappointing” - - has to be Nico for me. Ty has also sucked, but the term sophomore slump exists for a reason, and defense is a tougher position for young players. I’m much more irritated with our 5th year captain who has 2 goals in 21 GP, and has had way too many nights where he was barely noticeable. I used to think Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was Nico’s absolute floor, but at this point it’s looking more like that could be his ceiling. I know he’s only 22 (turns 23 next month), but I expected a lot more from him this season.

  7. If Fitz didn’t learn a lesson from watching Shero basically lose his job due to being overly loyal/patient with Hynes then that’s on him if history repeats itself.

  8. Maybe it’s just because I’m in a sh!tty mood that I’m gonna say it this pointedly, but I don’t care- this has nothing the fvck to do with Hughes. He’s played two games out of position after missing a month and a half. If you watched these games and understand what the fvck you’re watching, you should know damn well what the actual problems are.

  12. Lineup changes: Hughes in, Hextall out (also Tatar in for Novak, for that matter) Time for Jack to pick up where he left off! This’ll be a good one Goals for tonight: win convince Meier to come to NJ to play with his buddy Nico LGD!!

  14. Steering this back on topic- how about Ruff sends a message by firing the fvcking assistant coaches, like he should’ve done a year ago: https://www.nhl.com/devils/news/ruff-sends-message-with-tough-practice--blog/c-328521512?fbclid=IwAR2KVx5hMWtRfSOkd8ptqNXbe4WLHLpwglmOFrBwdGMslkGl-AOePLu5yHE

  16. Both Devils prospects had a good night for Michigan as they won 6-1 against Niagara. Ethan Edwards was back in the team after some time out and he potted his first Goal of the season. Bit of a fluke off the skate of the Niagara player but a goal none the less , good for him. Luke was dominant again with a goal and an assist. The skating and the movement on the goal was top notch. One guy is just static. The assist was just a pass pinged across the ice. Brisson did all the heavy lifting. The second game of this mini series is tonight. Luke now sits at 15gp 7g 8a. He is third on the team in goals ahead of players like Kent Johnson. He has fallen back a bit from Owen Power in terms of pace with Power on 21 points in 15 games, including 18 assists.

  18. I don't understand how ESPN executives listened to any tape (I would assume?) that Leah produced and thought "we should put her on ESPN covering NHL games." She's not qualified to give a play-by-play of our wife struggling to stuff her boob in our son's mouth.

  22. Hard to kill Siegenthaler for not having a mean streak, he fits right in with almost everyone else on the team. We don't have any nasty SOBs who take a regular shift. PK throws a nasty slew foot once in a while.

  23. also, instead of blaming literally everything on the 20 year old in his 2nd game back from major injury how about some accountability for the guy in your profile pic? Nico has had like 2 games out of 20 where he was worth a damn this season, and here you are jumping on Jack and his “fan boi’s” seriously wtf?

  24. Yeah that hard practice really seemed to make an impact Lindy. Try again. Maybe start with sh!tcanning your worthless bench mates.

  26. They need a fvcking wake up call. Too many games now where they’re no-shows for good portions of the game. I’ve fvcking had it with that sh!t.

  27. Moving fans because of a 9 year old roof leak is obviously ridiculous. The obvious answer is that they should hand out out buckets and those fans should be responsible for catching the water.

  28. As far as the actual "in seat" experience goes, I really have no complaints (though if I ever got stuck sitting under a leaky roof, I'm sure I'd be plenty ticked about THAT, especially when you have the means to sign Hischier, Hamilton, and Hughes). Sure, sometimes you can get stuck sitting next to or near annoying a$$holes, but that can happen in any public setting. But watching a game, quality time with my kid, general atmosphere...all good (yeah, crowd can be a tad somnambulant at times...that's always been the case though. Giants fans tend to be on the quieter side too). Can't really disagree on the food...having sat just about everywhere the last couple of seasons, I'd rate the restaurant a solid B. The lofts used to be about the same, but based on what I saw Opening Night, I'd drop it to a C-...overall it's fallen THAT far...what's sad is that part of the reason I migrated to the lofts is that I found the all-around "Seats w/Buffet" experience much better than what was offered in the Club Sections, so if the food in the clubs was worse than the lofts, kind of scary to imagine what the current club situation is. And based on my recent concourse experiences...I'd say maybe a D...and not only is it not good, but man some stations are SLOW. And yeah, they gotta start fixing things as needed. It's not a good look.

  29. This came a bit out of the blue. He has been quite points wise recently after a very good start. He is off to the WJC. Glad they have him locked up and hopefully we will see more of him in the future.

  34. 8x8 is awesome as long as he stays healthy. The talent is clearly there, just be fully healed, for the love of god... also, @nessus you gonna start the GDT thread? We dont have Hextall calling the game so it'll at least be bearable

  38. I’m not even close to being worried about Zacha right now. He’s been fine. The forwards that need to step it up are Tatar and McLeod. McLeod did get a helper on his bestie’s goal tonight though. And he continues to be absolutely money on face-offs. Not worried about the goaltending either. It’s the guys on the blue line not named Dougie Hamilton or Ryan Graves that are worrisome…

  44. In my heart I know one player doesn’t make the difference, but I feel like Jack’s return could be a huge lift for this team. They didn’t totally sh!t the bed in his absence, Mercer has filled that role admirably, now Bastian who was a well liked guy is back, and now Jack is poised to return. I just feel like it could be a huge “let’s fvcking go” type moment.
