    It’s Keefe

    It sounds like this is a good hire so I'll be hopeful. Hopefully TOR fans are bummed he's gone. I have to believe he asked Fitz about the goalie situation and maybe him taking the job means he liked what he heard. Or not, I have no idea.
  2. LGD! I want them to win but I don't want Green getting too much credit.
  3. I think Mercer would be dealt before Bratt.
  4. Yeah, supposedly it was the LAK.
  5. A BOS fan on another page I frequent has said there was a trade offer for Ullmark but the player turned it down. I wonder if that was us. Oh wow we had a Ullmark trade in place but he blocked it with the NTC. Wonder if New Jersey tried to get him before settling on Allen.
  6. I hope so with Saros. Fitz seems to have a hard on for Markstrom. I would be happy with Saros/Allen next season instead.
  7. Are we really going to be that confident with Markstrom/Allen duo next season. I can't say I will be.
  8. WPG has the 6th best rated prospect pool and we couldn't even get one of those guys.
  9. My son told me the 2nd is for 2025 and the third is 2024. That's gutsy for Fitz if true since he may not be here in 2025.
  10. Getting a second back is disappointing if that's the case. My kid was hoping this prospect named Rutger McGroarty playing at Michigan was involved.
  11. I don't think either Markstrom or Ullmark are the answer and I'm not sure how happy I'd be if we ended up with either one. I think the goalie pool opens up a little more if you're offering two firsts, one being a lottery pick.
  12. I must be the only person who doesn't want Markstrom. He seems like a win now goalie move and the Devils aren't close to winning now. They are not a goalie away from winning anything yet. While last season was a blessing for long suffering fans, they were handled by CAR in the playoffs and this season is what it is. I think this team is better than their record indicates but not Stanley Cup contending better, even with Markstrom and a different coach (maybe Berube can be a Burns type influence). Next season is Markstrom's 34/35 year old season. He would absolutely make the Devils better but I don't think it's enough to contend and I don't really want to give up any decent assets for him knowing we probably have a lottery pick this year. If we need to give up assets for a goalie I'd rather do it for a youngerish goalie who can grow with this team. I don't know who that would be as I'm not a GM. But I don't think Markstom's the answer.
  13. Especially for a team with great home colors. I hate black uni's when black isn't one of that team's primary colors. Let's Go Devils!
  14. The entire Crash Line should go in the ring. They were legendary in '95.
  15. I feel like this team is made for regular season success and not necessarily built for a long playoff run, bad goaltending not withstanding. I'm not telling anyone that making the devils more physical makes them better but I really don't want to see our captain getting run on with no answers anymore either. I'm not looking for a waste of space like Reaves either, those days are over. I actually hoped the Devils would sign Colton in the offseason. And I liked Gudas too because I was hoping the team would get a little more physical. Zadorov would be a good start.
  16. Let's Go Devils! I love and hate the fact that this team has some expectation this season, I hope I can enjoy it. My football season is already over as a Giants fan. Though thanks to the past few seasons of Devils ineptitude I've grown fond of talking about draft position and prospects so early in the season. Hate the 7:30 start too. I need the season to start now.
  17. I haven't yet but I will. I'm going to wait until we get closer to the regular season, unless they air all of the pre season games. Then I'll sign up sooner. I created an account I just haven't signed up yet. The quality is going to have to be super sh!tty to get me to even think about going back to FUBO.
  18. FUBO cost a lot of money for me since I only needed it for the devils. I think high speed internet is needed. And it's always in HD This year my kid said we can get msg+ as an app for $30/mth which is what I think I'm doing this season.
  19. I'd be perfectly happy seeing him start the season on the third line with Haula and Palat. Two veterans who I think can do the dirty work to help Holtz shine. What does the bottom six look like without him? Haula/Palat/Lazar/McCleod?/Tierney/Bastian/Foote/Nosek
  20. My son was hoping the Devils could pick up Hathaway. But I think we can find someone like that around the trade deadline if we need it. Maybe Lazar can fill that role even though he brings no Offense.
  21. I believe we still have Lazar too. And my kid is telling me Clarke should get a serious look.
  22. I feel the same way about the rags. Their rebuild started earlier than ours (and was aided by all those douches that would only play under NY's bright lights) and I think right now they are in the middle of "win now" mode whereas NJ is just starting their run. That's what makes this win even sweeter. The rags wasted this season. And with this playoff experience and the kids we have coming up our run can last a while. I think the future rags will only go as far as Laf/Kakko can take them because beyond them there's not a lot of young forward talent coming up in their system and their big names are getting older. Or maybe I'm just still high off of last night.
  23. Piss off NY! What a great turning point for the franchise this season. Making the playoffs was great but beating that team is almost like winning the cup. So proud of this team. I can now happily watch the playoffs again.
  24. I don’t have the line ups in front of me but I think we could still shore up that third line and while I don’t think we need to add any defense (especially if Hughes gets a shot) I wouldn’t mind adding someone like Gudas for the 5/6 spot in our defense. A little knuckle dragging for a rough playoff series possibly against the rags would be nice to have. And I believe he’s in the last year of his contract. But if we’re done making moves I’m ok with that. Meier is a big get.
