  1. Yep, another season where the Devs are out of the playoff hunt before Xmas. ;(
  2. ooh, suddenly we have lots of jersey numbers available ! any star players with 19, 21, or 97 are now welcome here
  3. Palms is not getting traded for a pick in this season with 46 games in 84 nights. Depth will be the key this year. so unless one of our AHL players can fill Palms role, like it or not, he's here until the deadline at least
  4. Hynes hired by Predators. holy cr*p, i never saw that coming
  5. i'm hoping for a disciplinarian. guys that would be similar to a hitchcock, keenan, etc. Some tough love might work in the short term.
  6. I was too. Then I compared his Points per Game as a Devil and as a Wild, then looked at his salary during his time with each team. Wild have paid like 4X per point than NJ did, so there's that !
  7. Going for .500 !! A Win would give us 20 points in 20 Games Played. Not playoff worthy, but I'll take .500 at this moment !
  8. Well, it would be a good start. At the least Shero would be clear on how the fans felt.
  9. Devils assistant general manager joins coaching staff Fitzgerald on board at Hynes' request for winless New Jersey; Hischier won't play against Rangers from nhl.com

    Fire Hynes

    Bring in Bylsma !! actually I think we need an experienced guy....in the vein of Hitchcock, Keenan, Crisp

    Fire Hynes

    When the GM believes in the Coach, he trades for/signs players. When the GM believes in his player trades/signing, he fires the Coach. Soon we'll know what our GM believes.
  12. that's why his linemate will be Simmonds !
  13. Maybe they'll do a Czech -year, with Jagr and Elias going together ? Also I'm surprised Richter hasn't gotten in with 300 wins, SC, World Cup, Olympic Silver, etc. He's certainly more accomplished than Ryan Miller, even with Miller now being the holder of Most Wins by US-born goalie
  14. only after we acquire quinn hughes else its the return of Neidmybrother !
  15. it's been a great 18 hours to be a Devils fan !
  16. Ugh, Rask with 4 goals allowed on 20 shots. Yes, the first STL goal was a beauty of a deflection...but to have a save percentage of .800 in Game 7 of Cup Final is brutal.

    Hughes or Kakko

    I'm not sure of this link was posted yet but I found this Hughes article to be a good read.
  18. There's a saying about best-of-7 playoffs that you "don't worry until you've lost at home". Carolina should worry.
  19. Ryan McDonough laying in the crease again and getting eliminated, like in 2012. Tough luck for this guy. And Callahan.
  20. yep, Columbus was up 2-0 against the Caps last year, with 2 OT wins. Game 3 is a must watch to see what develops

    Hughes or Kakko

    The only thing I remember about Parsie is that he has not been as good, in neither regular nor post-season, since he left the Devils. And I like that karma. Especially the 7.5 million cap hit ..each and every year...until his contract ends in 2025.. so far, MIN has paid over $ 70 million for 444 Games Played with 167 G - 169 A = 336 points.
  22. I like his pedigree: Hughes comes from a family of ice hockey athletes. His older brother, Quinn, was drafted 7th overall in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft by the Vancouver Canucks. His younger brother Luke plays minor hockey for Little Caesars 15U AAA[1] and will play on the U.S. National Development U17 Team during the 2019–20 season.[14] Their father, Jim Hughes, is a former hockey player and team captain for Providence College, an assistant coach for the Boston Bruins, and the director of player development for the Toronto Maple Leafs.[15][16] His mother, Ellen, played ice hockey, lacrosse, and soccer at the University of New Hampshire and, in 2012, was inducted into the University of New Hampshire Athletics Hall of Fame.[16] She also played for the United States women's national ice hockey team, and won a silver medal at the 1992 World Championship.
  23. less risk on taking that chance than on a # 1 overall
