  1. Wasn’t thrilled with Markstrom… but… all the details work for me. I didn’t want to give up our 2024 pick for him, I didn’t want to give up Casey or Holtz for him, and I worry about cap hit. Fitz instead sends our 32nd OA and Bahl to Calgary for 2 years of Markstrom with Schmid/Daws developing behind him.
  2. What channel is the Panthers coverage? ESPN has the Rangers feed?

    Alexander Holtz

    Holtz for UPL, the trade is 1 for 1... Lindy:

    Alexander Holtz

    Goaltending is so fickle. We should absolutely go out and find an established veteran goalie, but I really don't want to sell the farm with multiple high picks and prospects to try to catch a hot goaltender. I believe Holtz ceiling is a defensive liability, 35ish goal scoring winger... bench him on the PK, but have him out there early to score the first goal. It is possible for the Devils to score first. I've seen it. And obviously, when we're down by a goal. Depending on the offer, of course, he can be traded. He isn't untouchable. But I would prefer to send a pick out instead of him.
  5. I'm shocked that the team who acquired Matthew Tkachuk and Evan Bouchard for trash... won. That's the day I quit the league.
  6. LGD... My family is tired of me saying I'm done for the season, yet watching every night.
  7. Fitz reportedly tried to trade for Allen earlier in the season but Allen rejected the idea and had us on his NTC list. He didn't want to leave a 3 headed situation to be another 3 headed situation with VV/Schmid.
  8. I thought the same thing... but also highlights the veteran impact in goal.
  9. You can never have enough dmen... but they also are a crapshoot to develop plus extended development time. Barring a 1OA lotto pick, I'd be OK trading it for the right goalie.
  10. "Sometimes you just change things and hopes that it works..." "I also know that Nico, Jack and Bratt like playing together... so we might see a little bit of that as well"
  11. I absolutely hate how defeated I feel... there is no energy on the team to think we have the fight to pull out a 1 in 20 shot.
  12. I don't want Markstrom... he's too old. We don't need a goalie will be 35 before we can even realistically get back into the playoffs (next playoff) Ullmark/Swayman have never carried a heavy load. I like Swayman more, but so does Boston and they are trying to extend him - but they aren't close. Saros checks the boxes age wise and demonstrated workload. He's small for a modern goalie at 5'11 - but like you said, beggars can't be choosers.
  13. I would honestly rather give up Mercer than Holtz... And Schmid or Daws are more than capable for backup duties.
  14. I wouldnt mind trading 2 firsts away if it get us a legitimate starting goalie. I really don't want to see a backup that we try at starter re: VV Logan Thompson may be the exception? Until Adin Hill emerged, he was looking like the starter in Vegas.
  15. I don’t think Dano knows much about home building…
  16. We can offer our 1st, Holtz, Mercer, Casey and VV
  17. We need to sign that net immediately
  18. 5. We can net a first as a rental (pending UFA) 6. We can resign him this summer, for free, if he makes it to UFA (could be part of the Fitzy discussion)
