  1. Neither D men will be picked 1-3 it's be 3 fw's in that order. Nemec/Jiricek are not Makar. Devils imo sure as hell aren't picking one of those D men.
  2. In all fairness, how can any of us say any GM isn't trying hard enough to sign UFA's? We have no idea who did or didn't "try" to sign. I think NJ was in on JVR after Toronto but Philly was willing to give him that 7mil term. When you're going to pursue a UFA, don't you set a price? We'll overpay a UFA (within reason) but not stupid $$$ and term? (correctly so) We signed DH to a big contract. All GM's try, but many UFA (matured) don't want to go to a rebuilding team. They only got so many heartbeats. Husso may prefer to go to Leafs/elsewhere. We have cap space however. Who would want to play at the Rock? The Hall trade was a good trade @ the time. He wasn't satisfied, we wanted to keep him around. Glad it worked out for both.
  3. Fitz believes in Lindy as coach. I think getting a new PP,PK and asst coach(s). People are wanting Burnette? now PDB. (we ran him out of here) PDB is a great coach. And no, you don't hire coaches to "develop". Not his job to develope, it's to win now, not for a player to come around. Rico worked out as did Lars. Maybe, Lindy is OK working with prospects. We're tired of rebuilding, but with a lot of youth in our line up. I'm fine with Ruff as coach, he knows the game well. Fitz needs to start with goaltending. Why can't our s Euro scouts come up with a gem?
  4. Few Av's players very "average" last night. Compher (what does he do)? Newhook, Kuemper, where's MacKinnon.
  5. You don't walk away from his salary.
  6. Not the right thread, but I think we need another "insurance" goalie. lost faith in Blackie (not because of his skill) but his work ethic. Will Bernier be ready to train/play. Will he be the same? I like the idea of Primeau, maybe Stolarz? (reasonable trade) We can't go in with Hammond et all. Any suggestions of someone reasonable to target. Sh>t rolls downhill, our goaltending was huge part in out win/loss record. Soft goals kill a bench. Players know it.
  7. I'm impressed with Logan Cooley as well as Suraj (after reading a lil bit more). I like the idea of having another depth center. But I'd be stoked to pick either @ 2.
  8. Random thoughts-I like Nichushkin, E. Kane, Kadri, & Marchment. (we need size/speed) no to Debricat. No to Gaudreau, (let Philly have him) Why does everyone want to throw in the towel on Holtz? He's been here 1 season & did OK in AHL. He has tools. Fitz will not overpay (and shouldn't). Dougie was our big ticket item this year. I'd like Swayman. Nervous about Husso. Spencer Knight =unproven- & on a decent team. Let's just see what happens.
  9. Raanta sucked tonight. Make a GD save!
  10. I thought Matt's play by play was a lil mo better. Got excited when Dev's scored. He was better all around! Replace Cangi, move on. You know that whomever it is, half of us will like it, the other half won't.
  11. I think if they were going to unload Fitz, they would've done it by now. (at least I'm convinced) We all know this is his last "shot". What he's going to do with coaching staff? A few of the players. (yes, I'm now all in on trading Zacha after defending him in the past.) * Goaltending is (& will be) an issue until we land a good one. (f>ck Blackwood)
  12. Let's go Devils! ...................................................brilliant!
  13. LGD's...please...............Show up.........................AND..........................beat those commies
  14. Wow, Deboer sucked? Hynes sucked? (both still heavily in playoff hunt) Ruff sucks too? ......Whatever folks. LGD's
  15. Isn't Zacha a "decent" bottom 6? Some guys don't live up to their "draft" hype. I've defended him for years. If you can get something decent for him, go for it.

    Blackwood to IR

    I guess I'm in minority thinking Blackie is toast. Seems like a whiney biatch! I wish I were wrong about this guy.
  17. Let's go Devils! ...............Go....fight.......Win!
  18. You're pumping Bratts tires quite a bit. Let's everyone calm down. Players salaries have a "range". Whoa to the team that overpays hoping he'll play to that salary.
  19. Problem is he's been in a "roll" he's beginning to handle pretty good. He might be able to move up to 3rd line from time to time. Now he's a some what physical, has speed & a decent shot.
  20. Let him take feakin Boqvist's spot w/ Nico.
  21. RWings 2nd goal infuriated me. Between #7 & #24 (latter truly sucked) don't know why they're together. Then 2 minutes later, score again. I shut it off. So many players "fell off" after last year. Goalie needs more seasoning, although at times made great saves. I think coaching needs to change. But, imo, Fitz won't be making them. They will move on from him & let next guy change coaching personal. I think this team , as is, is so one dimensional.
