  1. I'm embarrassed by the way that VBK has acted during the last few months. Even if it is a bluff, he is making a mockery of my home team moving.
  2. I don't see any reason why LA would do this. Give up a solid goalie, and a defenseman who has struggled at times but can be a difference maker for 2 struggling (albiet young) forwards, an AHL goalie and a 7th defenseman. The picks are a moot addition since the value just isn't close.
  3. I assume you need to buy the entire jersey, you may be able to find it as a patch but it wouldn't be as big or the same material.
  4. Brodeur 30 wins: Under Brodeur 60 GP: Under Parise 40 goals: Under Kovalchuk 40 goals: Under Elias 30 goals: Under Josefson 20 goals: Under Zajac 40 games: Over Larsson 30 pts: Over Devils 40 wins: Over Devils 8th seed: Over
  5. I don't know how confident I feel that he will actually be playing this season. He missed an entire year and who knows how well he will bounce back, I would assume that with White gone he has a better chance but I don't really know.
  6. With what most RFAs are signing at, this is a great cap-deal for the Sharks
  7. Now that they are buying out Hunter, it makes perfect sense. Lou originally said that Hunter would be on the team next season, now I have no problem.
  8. I have a lot of thoughts about the contract coupled with the Brian Rolston trade. First, the Rolston trade was good because it freed up cap space this year for Parise's contract. However, with Zach taking a 1 year deal - we could have kept Rolston and Parise without any worries about the cap. With Parise's contract, I rather we kept Rolston and let him play out the one year at 5 mil rather than stuck with a 2 mil cap hit for 2 seasons, which infringes into the next season. Sure, there is a lot more cap room but if we could have rid the contracts right away, in 1 year, it is more worthwhile. With the contract, I don't know. Lundqvist was able to work this out with the Rangers. I am holding my thoughts until more is known. But this is a contract that has to be extended in January or early Feb when it can be extended. If Zach isn't looking to stretch the contract, you have to move him because this franchise cannot afford to lose a player of Parise's caliber without a return. However, sign him sign him sign him if you can.
  9. Rupp for 1.5 is awful, especially since he won't be putting up 10 goals a season and was never a great fighter
  10. As close as you can come to a steal in the FA world (even signing beforehand). He will be well worth the contract for the first 6 years, maybe even more. He isn't too physical he should hold up rather well.
  11. I like his play but this is a very bad deal, per year he is making more than a million over his worth and the contract is also too long. Thinking 4 years at 16 mil would be around where he would go, maybe 5 years at 24 if he got a payday but this is ridiculous.
  12. For me, I think the Devils have to be too high on Couturier to pass him up. I think his two way game is better and think he is more of a sure thing to hit his potential than Huberdeau. Also, Elias 2600, at this point their birthdates don't really matter. The months between around projecting any difference in career length and etc. If anything, it just means Couturier had extra time to develop over Huberdeau (read the book Outlier by Gladwell, it has an entire section about the importance of birthdays in the nhl draft).
  13. Lou tends to go with the best player available, not necessarily what plugs the holes. I think a player like Strome is most realistic if the pick is around 7 or 8, although if it ends up being 6 or 5 I can see Couturier if he falls a bit.
  14. I think it is going to be too difficult for Salvador to get into things... I wish him well but I do believe his Devil days are over.
  15. Peverley is signed through 2012
  16. A voice is an instrument. If you listen to plenty of bands (especially in the progressive genre) the voice is used to create texture and tone, it provides the same function as a guitar, bass, etc. The only people who think rap music is about degrading women and encouraging violence are the people believing the public persona that the media has given rap music. I don't really listen to rap music, but I have investigated enough to know that this is true.
  17. Just for clarity guys, a musician can only be a musician if DevilinLA says so
  18. I liked this trade a lot for the Ducks at first until I found out the deal included Gardiner. Major overpayment, I guess the Ducks wanted to rid Lupul's contract so they had to put a solid prospect in.
  19. Gilroy will be 27 before next season, I am not sure how valuable he would be in a trade (even with RFA status)
  20. Whoever wrote this article really needs to take a college level writing class... I am not surprised that Gomez is acting this way, part of the reason he left was because the organization made him behave and he didn't want any of that.
  21. Patty playing with the Staals and Henrik, good thing I can't watch the game.
  22. I gave a B, they won a lot more than I thought they would and actually scored a lot of goals in that process.
