  1. 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.

    Mentioned this elsewhere but Meier is too expensive for the Devils to take on.  Especially with Bratt likely to get some serious coin.  

    Yeah we didn't put much thought into the monetary aspect of it.  I just hate seeing Tatar on that top line and now reading that Johnsson got the call up is disheartening.  That's why I'm wondering if we can still get a top six winger for Seves.

  3. Palat's injury and Holtz's failure to nail down a spot really show how little depth we have for a decent top 6.  I wonder if it would be better to maybe see what we can get for Severson now instead of waiting as the season goes on since I think we all agree he won't be back.  I think it would be tougher to trade him later on if we are in a playoff spot or close to it.

    I was talking to a friend of mine last night and he said he hoped we could somehow pull a Holtz for Meier trade.  I don't know how realistic that is or if SJ would even look to move him.  If we traded Seves I would love to get some kind of power forward not that I even have a name to give though.  I'm assuming Bahl and Okhotyuk can step in on the third line.

    I'm pretty happy with the way they've been playing and I don't think they need to wait until March to make a move if we can.

  4. I grew up a NY Football Giants and Nets fan but never paid any attention to hockey until the Devils made the playoffs for the first time in '87/'88 when I was a senior in high school.  I always wanted to support NJ sports teams (I loved the Generals too) but I didn't know anyone who followed hockey.  So it was a big deal when they first made the playoffs and I started following them slowly. It wasn't until I first played on my Sega EA Sports hockey in '91 or '92 that I actually started to understand the game and know the teams and players and became more of a hockey/Devils fan that culminated with the crushing loss to the rags in '94.  The next year was better though.

    Someone is setting themself up for a disappointment. 



    I swear I can’t believe how hyped Bruins fans are about this trade. On another message board I visit one Bruins fan commented on his size and how it was about time they added players like that. I just laughed and thought I can’t wait until you see how soft he plays. They are way over-valuing him.

    But yeah

    Graves - Hamilton

    Hughes - Nemec

    Siegenthaler - Severson

    This is sexy

    Then you have Bahl, Mukh and Walsh in the pipeline ready to step in

    This is a deep group and this is how you win

    Also Okhotyuk and Vukojevic.

    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.

  11. 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.

  13. 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?


  18. 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
