  3. As we approach the holiday season with Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwanza next week, I am doing my annual bump of this thread in memory of my friend(s) and to help those still battling their own way. Each year, I advocate those around me to reach out if they need anything, literally any time, but a few weeks ago, I realized I was doing so without providing much credibility of myself. So here;'s a bit of my backstory WARNING: Emotional post ahead. In 2016, about two months before I had made the original post, I was diagnosed with the early stages of PTSD. It was a freaking nightmare to be in t

  5. That's a stupid title, and this is a stupid thread. When did Shero say we're "out of" our rebuild? Our top organizational defensive prospect isn't ready yet, our top two centers aren't old enough to buy a beer at the Prudential Center. There's a core here that can be a very solid hockey team without a tear-down "rebuild-part-two." The devils need Jack Hughes to become a star and Nico Hischier to become a quality cornerstone player. They need Ty Smith to work out, and they need to nail it with their draft this year. Most importantly, they need to find a solid return from Hall and a coach

  6. Won’t be tuning in, but I have a good reason. Tonight is my wife and my third anniversary. Our third year of marriage was a disaster; after visiting her brother in the ICU for two weeks stemming from a terrible drunk driving accident (he was not the drunk one), she contracted a nasty disease from the hospital. Three attempts at surgery were unsuccessful, so she was moved to a specialist. she’s spent the better part of this entire year in a hospital room or an operating room. 19 surgeries in total. It bankrupt her, it took our nest egg that we were ready to turn into a house and used it o

  7. Bahl is obviously the most intriguing of the three prospects coming back. 6'6", 230 lb left shot defenseman that's going to be playing with Ty Smith on Team Canada at the World Juniors in a couple weeks, and this year I think he's taken a significant step in his two-way game. Primarily, he's still a physical shutdown defenseman and I think he likely projects as a #4 defenseman who can play on our top PK unit at his ceiling, but he also has some decent mobility and hands for a player his size. Tonight, I was already planning on watching a 67's game in preparation for an article on Marco Rossi I

  11. Never made a Game Day Thread before. Maybe some minor change in my life will result in some major change elsewhere in the universe. Namely, on the ice surface in Newark tonight. Three games have been discouraging, but let't not lose hope y'all. We're one outstanding performance on home ice from remembering why this team excited us so much all summer. LGD!

  12. Ruff currently doing a zoom call w/ STH's. Q&A. I asked several (had to submit before hand). Are you prepared to have patience with some of the younger players on the team to give them a real chance. Are you willing to perhaps lose a regular season game because Jack Hughes is getting outplayed by the other team’s line on a given night, but still keep him with skilled players as opposed to burying him and not giving him the learning experience while moving a veteran like Travis Zajac up simply because it’s the “safer coaching decision”. Will other younger players who

  17. Tonight, I walked off of my plane for the last time. I’ll be honest with everyone, it’s been a brutal last few days knowing I won’t fly with 95% of these people again and more than likely won’t do what I’ve been doing for the last 6 years anymore. While it is nearly 100% by choice, it still doesn’t make it any easier. This thread has been my annual way to remind people to look out for one another, but as I walk away from the home I’ve known for the better part of a decade, I felt a bump was in order, since this place was what drove me to do so in the first place. We had a handful of

  18. Watched most of this one with my dad last night...sadly he is back in NJ for a few days, as he is about to be given a treatment plan for a second battle with prostate cancer. He was blown away by Mac...kept saying “Damn, this guy is stopping everything!” He is extremely stressed, and it was nice to see the Devils give him a little break from that. As for the game itself...I’m sure the Flyers had to be thinking “How the hell did we lose by FIVE GOALS?! How did we not even find the back of the net once?” Devils at one point in the third period were 3-for-3. Puck luck definitely wen

  20. After reflecting on the last few games with Nas in charge it has become clear that a new head coach needs to be found as soon as possible. Whilst it may be easier to get someone in the off-season I really don't feel the devil's can actually waste the rest of this season and see what happens. There are 52 games left, 52!!!!!!!! That is a sh!t load of hockey for our young guys to get through and for them to develop they need to start being coached well! If you stick with your current hand for the remainder of the season you are wasting months of development for players l

  21. To those like me who actually schlepped to the Rock to see that absolute abortion of a hockey game...suffice it to say that I'm every bit as pissed, frustrated, annoyed, you name it, as all of you. Goddamn...I can't stand this fvcking team right now. I know this rarely happens in the Real World, but in my Fantasy World, Ray meets Hynes and his merry band of complete fvcking idiots and fires them all on the spot. Before another worthless Hynes postgame presser. I've been extremely patient with Ray and that's partly because I know that the GM timetable doesn't usually correlate to th

  23. I figured it would be good to have a place where we can update on a regular basis how the Draft picks the Devil's received are shaping up. First let's set out the picks and conditions (if any): Arizona's 1st round pick for hall Conditions: Lottery protected, if Arizona wins the lottery and moves into any of the first 3 spots the pick moves to 2021 Current pick : 11th The ideal situation for this pick is that Arizona slides right down the order , fails to win the draft and we get another top 10 pick. They are still very much in the playoff race so I would say this is l

  25. This does need to be treated seriously but at the same time panic doesn't help anyone. The current mortality rate for Covid-19 is 4% for known reported cases , seasonal influenza mortality rate is 0.1% and global influenza deaths fluctuate between 2-4% annually. These are all readily available WHO figures. And just remember 4% of the American population is 13.5 million people. That being said there isn't any need for panic. Sensible measures like regular hand washing and self isolation if you have symptoms can stop the spread. It is true that the vast majority of people who g

Mike Brown offers up contradictory bullet-points, mfitz interrupts him to make a weiner joke, SD tells him that he isn't racist he just thinks PK should use a different water fountain, Neb00rs flies in out of nowhere screaming that Gusev is terrible at defense, MB3 starts yelling at SD, RWTD asks MB3 why he's being an idiot and chirping SD, Nicomo starts giving actual constructive criticism but is quickly interrupted by a well-timed meme from mfitz which elicits a Ray Liotta laugh meme from Mad Dog. CR asks Nicomo to continue his actual constructive criticism but that's again quickly shut down

  34. Normally, I'd put an off topic post in another sub, but I feel it is important enough to post here. As the holidays arrive, please, look out for one another, including your friends and family. This time of year is rough for some as they don't always feel included or just feel like they aren't valuable to anyone. I bring this up because about 24 hours ago, I found out a coworker whom I looked up to and went to often for advice took his life in his home, leaving behind a family. He tragically becomes the fourth person I know this year to take their own life. I had no clue. He was alway

  36. Last year I was in the “we desperately need to lose and get better picks” Camp. this year in firmly in the “the core we have right now needs to feel what it’s like to not be a doormat for the first time in their NHL career.” I’ll be happy with a ~10th overall pick if it means a second half resurgence and momentum heading into next season.

  37. Same here for me the struggle never gets easier in fact quite the opposite. It can be a cruel cruel world and we'll never know what others around us are struggling with. . At my most recent brain injury support group meeting a question came up would you wish your situation on your worst enemy and all 12 of us said hell no. Speaks volumes when you think about that for a second. As someone who's lost three extremely successful career VP level corp execs peers within the last 5 years along with my wife the pain underneath the surface is insanely real. So love harder, hug longer and never ev

  38. Wow Jag...all I’ve got to say is that I’m glad you’re not only a part of this community, but here in this world. We’re all better for knowing you. And as someone who once struggled with severe depression (and though I’m in much better shape now, it never really goes away entirely, at least not for me), if you ever feel like you need help or should talk to someone...don’t hesitate. Don’t hope that it will just go away on its own, or worry that people will think you’re weak for not “sucking it up”. Get help, talk!

  44. I might not be into jerseys as hardcore as you, mfitz, and CR76, but I appreciate the knowledge you guys bring on them. I only bought jerseys from NHL Shop before finding this board. Didn’t know about Meigray or EPS, etc. So in short, don’t let one or two trolls discourage you from talking about your collecting. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s interested.

  45. Calling it now that Ty Smith will actually be a somewhat important part of the Devils playoffs this year - similar to Cale Makar last year for the Avs. How's that for the bright side of things?
