    Yeah Ty Smith has been bad this year but he's still a young player in his 2nd season. Still giving him a bit of a pass on some bad decisions.

    He's not too young to get up to speed in Utica, but then again the next "in line" Jaros & Geersten.  

  2. Bratt, one of our best skaters, doesn't belong in NHL> he's a perimeter player.  (I'm done with him)  Subban, great trade at the time, but he's not aging all that well.  Sharangovich-f>king passenger,  needs a wake up call.  Kuok- trying to figure out what he does well- (Don't pair Sharangovich/Kuok w/ #13)- Siegenthaler is a disappointment-thought he'd be better. imo goaltending was not very good last night. 4 goals in one period. If that doesn't kill a bench, what will? 

    Well folks, is this the beginning of the downhill slide?

    This is the first time since Bratt broke into the league where I would describe his play as just straight up bad.

    You're being kind. Turnover machine! #17 Sat most of the 3rd.  Maybe Lindy thinks Bratt will get lucky?  His game is tight turns around cones.

    I know it's crazy talk but i'd love for Nashville to sh!t the bed with Forsberg and that we're going for him, either at the trade deadline or free agency. Forsberg - Hughes - Sharangovich would be a thing of beauty

    I think Forsberg's going to get paid wherever he goes. Jack's inline to get paid next year & although I'd love to see him (Forsberg) in NJ, other teams are willing to pony up.

    Fair and I pin that more on Masisak than Amanda.  I know that Amanda is really a PR person than an actual reporter.  However, is it really that difficult to post the lineups for that evening's game?  How was TG able to do it for the Devils but Amanda wasn't?  Doesn't seem like it was some sort of state secret.

    She (Amanda) post lines/D pairings as they happen (on Twitter) during practice everyday. ALWAYS. I see them, & don't understand why folks here don't. 

  6. I think Dano is a good compliment to Cangy. I've had Centre ice (and XM radio) & listen to a all other teams broadcast teams. IMO, Cangy/Dano are pretty darn good. My fave radio (p x p) guy is Isles. Love the fact Dano struggles with names.

  7. I think Subban is setting himself up for post hockey career. He does have personality.(outgoing)  I'm glad we have someone on our team that draws attention to the Devils. I hope the other players like PK, but I have no idea if they do or not. He seems like a real team guy. I don't get why they boo him either.  I think PK is a 3-6 D man on most teams.

    Then again, I don't get why fans boo Bettman any more. Why? '03 Lock out?

  8. In reality, The (almost) clear choice was Nico/Patrick. Both centers, and you always pick a center. The entire Devil fan base (sitting outside in Championship square) roared when we picked Nico. Also, Hughes was the absolute no brainer Number 1 overall.  Folks outside the Rock, went nuts (and rightfully so) 

    Go "off the board"?  I think not.

  9. Maybe NHL should give up on keeping a team in Az. How many owners have come/gone? Then again, we'll never see a A. Mathews to Coyotes.  If they move it'll need to be left of the Mississippi to keep conference straight.

    Rangers have signed the Sh!tstork for 4 years, with a $5.666 AAV.

    The amount is significant because its the largest amount ever given to a goalie coming off his entry level contract. 

    Let's hope he has a "Cahter Hat" type of year.  making for a lil chaos in MSG.

  11. We all know (pretty much) Fitz will overpay for Hamilton.  However, there is a possibility he'll sign elsewhere in a market that has a legit shot at cup. Or, last minute change of heart by Canes. (which I doubt-they're flush w/ D men)

    I also wouldn't mind Cody Ceci for depth. (chipped in a lil offense & was a plus 18,  & 27 years old. -fo schizzle) Love to see Coleman back in NJ

  12. I agree Fitz will be aggressive w/ Hamilton. Not so much w/ Vladdy. There's a lot of tempting UFA's out there, costing us no assets. He might make a pitch for Wennberg? Danault, McCabe, M. Janmark, Blake Coleman, M. Rielly? Can't wait for Wednesday.

    It's a decent, mild-overpay UFA-to-be signing...nothing more than that.  Not saying it's a bad signing...based on his last two seasons, he should provide about 30 points per 82 GP if he gets about 15 min per game...and he should provide some intangibles as well.  Not so sure I would've signed up for 6 years of him, but that's how it goes.   

    How about Coleman. He's been a role player all his career. Is he still role player? or capable of playing in top 6?  Suspect he get paid in the 3.5-4 mil range? Watch, he too will sign with Rag$.
