  1. 10 mil. offer to Timo? Where did you hear that? wowser! I wonder how many UFA's Fitz will just let walk? Tatar, Woody, Haula, Graves, Severson, ? No other team will be hankerin for the likes of Boqvist, Zetterland, & Yegor (luster has worn off) I like Haula although he doesn't score. Maybe Fitz can find a couple guys to play alongside Jack/Nico. Haula to stay line # 3 as center? We won't be able to keep both #28 and #33.
  2. To my dearest Devil brethren: Bo Horvat will never be a Devil! P. Kane will not be a Devil! Ryan O'Reilly will not be a Devil!! Pasta will never be a Devil! Why? we couldn't possibly make room (cap) So, let's all move on from these evil thoughts. Timo Meier (a remote/minimal possibility) but realistic.
  3. Hopefully he'll consider coming too N.A. Permanently & get used to smaller surface. He's playing against good competition, but not pro's older men. I agree he might just be a gem. BTW thanks for the live scouting reports!
  4. I was never a Zacha hater. I think & always will think he's a serviceable fw. Decent on face-offs did great on PK. Scoring? unreliable. (but you can say that about many players) A few folks here thought he sucked. Now, he's Boston's problem. I think he's happy to be there.
  5. Late to the patty, Merry Merry! And may Palat help bring this team back.
  6. Players can/will be streaky. But not a goaltender. Plays decent against Fla. Sh>ts the bed in 2nd period. Gets pulled. Sadly, I doubt he'll bring anything back in a trade.
  7. That's the criticism Zacha had here. He was never going to live up to the hype that followed him being drafted 6th overall. Choosing him 6th was all Lou, as he always made size a priority. He'll be a decent 3rd line player, but that's about it. But a serviceable player.
  8. Boqvist & Holtz- Give Bahl a shot over Smith? imo McCleod is a very good 4th line center. Struggles with 3rd line role.
  9. If that's what he's (Foote) targeted/projected to be, that's fine by me. A 4th line role is every bit as valuable to a team.
  10. Isn't this a good time to call up one or two guys from Comets? Clarke seems to be caliente at the moment, maybe Foote, or Okhotyuk? Somebody that has a lil jam in his game?
  11. I doubt is Grits going to get a one way ELC.(if there is such a thing) He'll have to compete to make the team like everyone else. I'm cheering for him.
  12. No call up this year. Seems like he's an after thought when this team could use size. I'm sure at one time he was thought as a possible wing compliment to Jack or Nico. We need the Kamikaze like physical anyone! Not perimeter skating types. We don't rough any body up. It's the one thing lacking in our game imo. I'm hoping/thinking when Palat/Bastian get back in line up, things will straighten out.
  13. Has anyone else given up on Nolan Foote. Is this guy ever going to be what scouts thought he would be?
  14. LGD's. Holtz over Johnsson? and Bahl too. i thought he played well. We need a win build a lil confidence.
  15. This "4th line" is brutal. Often lost, not much compete. Maybe if #17 would work his way back up to top 6, he'd be a lil more productive? Please send Holtz to Utica, (lost, not contributing at all). I can't believe how much this team misses Bastian? McCleod has been great imo. Devil fans will start the "he's not being used properly" defense.
  16. You are one lucky guy. Enjoy! Give us a scouting report
  17. With having the luxury of deep/veteran D group, you could slowly bring a Nemec, Luke Hughes up to NHL speed. Also, it would allow us to trade one of them (Graves or Severson) & get back a player. Getting a 4th/5th rounder for Blackwood is a waste. Blackwood could turn into a decent goalie (if he ever stays healthy). I disagree, I think he'll bring back a decent "roster" bottom 6 guy. (Bastian type)? Not sure which team has a surplus of these guys.
  18. I'm guessing Blackwood becomes a trade candidate. He gets broken too often for my liken. Schmid looked pretty darn good. i would have to say he's ahead of Daws at this point. Brennan might start for Canadian Jr. team over Christmas. Nice to have a lil depth in net developing. I think there would be some interest in Blackwood. We could always use another Bastian type? Don't think we have a role guy like him in Utica.
  19. I wouldn't be surprised if Severson is signed at a discount deal. I know many Devils fans think he's not very good, but with D corps having more depth this year, he's not being counted on as much. He's our 2nd PP QB. Fitz does have to shed some $$ somewhere. I know Tatar, Wood, Severson, Haula, & Graves are UFA's after this season. I think they are high on Bahl, & Smith is signed for next season. I think/hope Fitz can sign Bratt to a reasonable contract. Cap wise as we speak, is not too shabby.
  20. LGD's. Wonder if they'll bring up someone from Utica to take Bastian's place/role? Don't know who plays those kind of minutes with Comets? And no, not Holtz. Maybe Foote?
  21. Why not give Hughes credit for reading the play & executing instead of finding fault w/ everything. Tavares went back to the bench knowing his giveaway lost the game.
  22. LGD's. We all know that this team will lose a few games here and there. Lindy's system is working well. Whatever tweaks the new assistants brought are contributing. We're playing so much better in D zone. As long as goaltending maintains. IMO, the most important piece. Everybody gives up great scoring chances, & hope goalie bails him out. On Twitter at least, all the "fire Lindy" clowns have temporarily gone crickets after being called out by Biz Nasty & , , Sirius NHL talking heads, and fellow Devil fans. (not that he (Biz) is a moral compass)
