    2 assists for Slafkovsky in the 4-2 Slovakia win over France at the World Championship. He was involved on the third Slovakia goal as well, but didn't record a point on that one. Nemec had an assist on that goal.

    This guy better slow down before Montreal considers taking him.

    On another note, there's really nothing wrong with being a late riser. For Slafkovsky, it isn't just the Olympics that elevated his draft stock. He started producing more toward the end of the season. And now he continues to look good at the WC. It isn't quite as small of a sample size as many think. Jack Quinn is a recent late riser, and he's looking like an excellent pick so far. 

    I read on another board that MTL is desperate for a top line center and with no center prospects in their farm I would hope they still take Wright first.  Slafkovsky would fit in nicely here.

    I wonder what the Devils would do if Slafkovsky was picked first?  You can always use talent like Wright and Cooley but the Devils have bigger needs elsewhere.

    Lou was supposedly interested in Schneider for over a year before Vancouver finally gave him up. I remember both him and Luongo were playing well but Luongo had the big contract so the rumor was they wanted to keep Schneider and trade Luongo. I guess Lou waited them out, so I wonder if Fitz has anyone like that who he’s been looking at. 

    That’s what I’m hoping for. Admittedly I don’t follow anyone other than the Devils that closely anymore so I’m not sure who would even be our Schneider in this trade. But I know that there’s no one worthy in FA nor in the draft and we don’t have anyone in the system ready to carry the team, so if we’re not trading for a goalie, where are we getting one? There has to be an upgrade next season. I liked the Blackwood/Bernier combo this season but we can’t go into next season with only them again. I’m not sure how we fix our most glaring weakness.

    Nico at 27 points in 42 games. Is it what you want out of a #1 overall pick? No, probably not. But it's not nothing, either -- especially considering the fact that he's excellent defensively. 

    It wouldn’t be so bad if he turned into Joe Nieuwendyk.

  4. I bought a Hughes sweater for my son.  It was easier to get than the RR's.  He likes this sweater and I don't hate it at all, I'm just not a fan of adding a black jersey.  I think the red and green were fine as an alternate sweater. 

    But I can't wait to see what these look like on the ice.

    Btw, solid crowd tonight. Not a sell-out, but definitely a better than normal weeknight crowd for a western conference opponent. Lowers and 100’s were just about full.

    I was there and I was pretty impressed with the crowd. A few empty seats in every section but otherwise full. Not bad for a Tuesday night game against an expansion club.

  6. I heard that Kessel wants out of PHX. I’d rather the Devils look into that rather than Tarasenko if Fitz is planning another move. I know it would cost more to acquire him but he’d look nice on the first line.

    what are the chances the devils dive in on Krejci? Boston can’t currently afford him. if fitz shows up tomorrow and says hey, we’ll give you $12m for 2 years to be our 3rd line center and we need an answer today...?

    I was surprised that I hadn't heard his name today at all. I just assumed that meant he may already have had a deal with BOS in place.  I think that would be a great pickup for us. 


    Can we get him and Saad or have I now crossed the line after the fine day we had today?

    I follow hockey overall more than any waking breathing human being I know and there have been writers saying it’s a good fit for a while. No rumors, though.

    He didn't say there were rumors about it, just that he thought we should look into him.  He also said the same thing to me about Dunn.

    If we're really stuck at the RW Garland might be an option. I remember hoping we'd draft him few years ago cause i saw him play in Moncton and leading the league in points. He did pretty well in Arizona and ive been seeing rumours about him so if we could get him for cheap it might be something

    My kid follows hockey overall more than I do now and he's mentioned the Devils pursuing this guy.

    This Seattle team is going to steal our lunch money and beat us up this year.

    Huge team.

    But who's going to score for this team?  It seems like almost all of their forwards are "bottom six" players according to the small blurbs I've read.

    I hope the Rags don't end up with Giordano.  I know a few fans who are already thrilled with the prospect of acquiring him for Strome then adding Eichel.  And why the fvck would SEA eat some of that salary?


  11. My kid just told me that the Devils traded for Ryan Graves from COL for our 2nd and Maltsev.  He was pretty happy about this.  I haven't seen anything yet.


    Wow, 6'5 " 220lbs

  12. Unfortunately I think there’s going to be a few teams who would want Coleman. I read a blurb from Brooks saying he would be a perfect fit for what the rags are trying to do as far as adding grit and skill goes. Not that he’s going there, but I think Coleman’s going to be sought after. I would love him back here.

    Dam, he would be a fine pick up for a team like ours that desperately needs a top tier defenseman, if we could get him to sign an extension.

    Not sure what we'd have to offer to get him.


    edit: Subban comes of the books after this season so offer him Subban's money plus another mil if it'll keep him here.  I think he's only going to be 27 so you can offer him something long term too.  I know I'm just dreaming though.

  14. If the Devils are making this trade I would rather it was for a promising young defenseman. I know we need forward help but we are really hurting on D, even though I hope we see Bahl, Reilly, and Vukojevic get a chance next season.

  15. They never make it easy. I took a chance and bet $50 the Devils would win outright after the second period since they've played well against BOS.  It's like they were doing their best to give my money away.  I'm glad I didn't bet it giving 1.5 because god forbid we score another goal.  We just play well against BOS this year.

    I read about this today and I admit in the most petty way it made me happy.  I'm still bitter he left but man that contact is looking bad.  Thankfully our bad contract retired and went to Russia.  Better them than us.

    I'm actually kind of indifferent to this...as long as they wind up getting worn for the same number of dates as originally planned, I'm OK with them not making their debut tonight.  I was looking forward to seeing them on ice sooner than later though...hopefully 3/2 then.  Only one more week. 

    And though I know that I will be in the serious minority here, if the Devils ever went with their RR jerseys as their home jerseys, and the Heritage as their away, I wouldn't object...they could either keep the green as is, or swap out the green for black.  For one, I kinda like the idea of red shoulder yokes for both jerseys.  For another, I think both represent an improvement over the current red-and-blacks, which I've never been terribly fond of...used to them, sure, but I still think the previous red-and-blacks were superior. 

    I know the Devils' record has been abysmal in the Heritage jerseys, but I think both the RR and the Heritage jerseys have a nice "classic" look to them.  I knew I would like the Heritage jerseys upon release (I was hoping for that design at the time), but the RR grew on me much more than I expected it to.  The red shoulders with the white outline just really pop, in a very good way.    

    I love these RR sweaters but I’m partial to teams that use colors other than black. I do understand why the Devils made the change and I had no problem with it, especially since red and white seemed to be our primary colors and black was a secondary color. Except when black is a primary color like the Steelers or Raiders or the Spurs, those I like.  I didn’t like when PHI came out with a black sweater and I hated the Buffaslug uniforms and I wasn’t even a fan of the LAK changing their colors but I understood why they did it when they traded for Gretzky.

    But I also like the old 80s Buccaneers and Patriots and Broncos uniforms as opposed to their newer ones. Especially the Bucs, they had like the Bad News Bears problem where all the other color schemes were taken so they went with what was left. I love the Swashbuckler.

    Oh you can write it down. Eichel will tell Buffalo I oNLy WAnt tO bE TraDEd tO THe RAngERs, BRighT LIghTS BRah; Eichel to the Rags for Colin Greenwell, Kevin Rooney, an autographed Brian Leetch puck, two tickets to Hamilton, and Brendan Smith.

    I know you guys are (partly) kidding, but I'm not sure the Rags would be automatic.  I wish I could remember the player (it may have even been Eichel), but the idea was that the Rags would have to give up K Miller or Fox, plus Kakko or Lafrenier, and some other goodies.  And then they'd have to pay him and I don't think they have a lot of cap room.  Hopefully if he gets traded it's out west  I also remember reading that LA has the kind of pieces to make a deal work.
