  1. GDT: Thank You Patty (6PM ceremony, 8PM puckdrop)

    Totally agree on the social media. Lou had his MO for doing things. He got results. As far as that leading it to being a financially successful franchise that could certainly be debated. This franchise has been fighting to survive from day 1. I am absolutely amazed that a team could be put in this market in 82 and survive. We are still far from out of the woods IMHO. These owners scare me since they are professional liquidators. Let's hope they see a decent ROI(or writeoff) or fall in love with owning this team.
  2. GDT: Thank You Patty (6PM ceremony, 8PM puckdrop)

    This organization was cash strapped and on the verge of bankruptcy. They were borrowing money from the league and Andrew Barroway. Players were concerned about getting paid. They literally had a yard sale during the season in the depths of the Rock selling anything they could get a buck for. So yeah, there are consequences of being a money losing franchise...no marketing budget, Parise never really considering signing here, encouraging Kovy to go home and the inferior retirement ceremonies.(according to you)

    Does anyone think that he may be pissed with the emphasis that was placed on Elias on staying with one team? Seemed very repetitive.
  4. Devils aquire Sami Vatanen for Henrique + Blandisi + '18 3rd

    Yes, what a game, I did forget about that...however, I was really wondering how well they know each other. Sometimes in youth hockey, when the top players forge quite a disdain for each other while growing up, so I am just curious if it is a positive or a negative in regards to their possible relationship. I guess when it is all said and done...the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ he is going to get can make that decision easier.
  5. Devils aquire Sami Vatanen for Henrique + Blandisi + '18 3rd

    You got to give to get. Fair trade by both sides.The xfactor to me is how the draft picks pan out. Even Blandisi to an extent. But this is a great move toward becoming the real deal. No way this team wins the Cup with the existing D corp as it was. Still some work to be done. John Carlson would be huge! Come home kid! I wonder if he and Palms know each other. Back to Rico...Anyone that was in the building for that Ranger killing goal was beyond fortunate. It still brings the hairs right up on my arms. It ranks right up there with me for all time fan moments and that even includes me being on the ice with the players after game 7 in 2003 Best of luck to Rico in Orange County. Blender probably has a permasmile, especially if he gets to go from Binghampton to Socal.

    Solid signing. Great hands, good on draws, and plays a tough game.
  7. 2017 Expansion Draft Thread - LV Takes Jon Merrill

    Not so sure about that unless they have a deal in place not to take Rust. Pittsburgh needs Fleury to go away and would probably like to keep Rust.
  8. 2017 Expansion Draft Thread - LV Takes Jon Merrill

    I bet you see draft picks going to Vegas in the next 3 drafts as opposed to this one.
  9. 2017 Expansion Draft Thread - LV Takes Jon Merrill

    I believe Vegas can draft 3 goalies if they so choose.
  10. She's a really nice girl who isn't a bad hockey player either. I am sure she is excited to take on this next job and if you know anything about working for professional sports it is often best to work for a team that ins't your favorite because the day to day can sour you very much on the team. I highly doubt her Philthadelphia background will taint her capabilities to do the job. It's also nice to see a person that works hard get to a spot like this. Is it October yet?
  11. Devils sign Austin Cangelosi - C Boston College

  12. So when will the Devils be competitive again?

    I never hear of RFA's being pursued, but I think it should be explored. Yes, I know you have to give up some picks to do so, but depending on what the next few drafts are, it could make sense to poach a guy that has some track record and is fairly young. The draft is such a crap shoot and with some teams up against it could be a way to get a few players that could help turn the team around.

    Isn't that site just basically fans doing the writing?
  14. 2017 Expansion Draft

    I think the waiver issue and trading is if he is on the active roster for less than 30 days. I don't know if that is right, but for some reason that rattling around in my head.
  15. The Rise of Damon Severson

    I liked Severson form the start. Just like any other young D man, they just need a bunch of games before you can really see what you have. Now, I do think he needs better defensive vision in his end end, more head on a swivel type awareness. I would also like to see him to increase his physical play a tad. The coaches should let him carry the puck more or give him more of a green light to jump in. On a team that struggles offensively, you need that help. It kind of reminds me the Cup Run year, I spoke to Parise and he said that the lack of support out the back was really hurting there O. Surely, enough, a few weeks later, the D was (buzz word alert) activating more often and they became a much harder team to play against.
