    Fire Hynes

    That’s the main thing - it’s almost like a fan revolt against status quo losing because a) 5 year rebuild is way too long for NJ Devils b) everything was supposed to be lined up this year to be done with rebuild for the foreseeable future

    Fire Hynes

    Even if one think Hynes does nothing wrong and it’s all players’ fault you can’t fire 23 players
  3. What is the Hynes system really? I don’t remember another team with an ambition to be a playoff team with such a small amount of sustained pressure offensively, can’t get out of their zone for centuries and every time plays develop everyone makes the worst possible decisions or in worst positions for the play to develop into a scoring chance . Today I counted at least 3 or 4 times in a row they went offsides on in 3-4 minute span. You give the team with this amount of talent to DeBoer they make playoffs hands down

    Also I think there’s a reason most NHL coaches don’t run such intensive training camp - they already look totally gassed instead of fresh and ready to compete - even in the great ‘17-18 they were tired by November
  5. Lol - just kidding but in these 2 games Smith-Tennyson pairing couldn’t have been any worse than Severson-Mueller
  6. Can we recall Mark Tennyson already and un-send Smith for 9 games ?
  7. Depth matters a lot - lets say it’s December 5th, there’s always going to injuries let’s say injury-wise it’s this just for argument’s sake: Simmonds, Vats, Zacha, Schneider the lineup could be this: Hall-Hischier-Bratt Gusev-Hughes-Palms Coleman-Zajac-Boqvist Wood-McLeod-Hayden Pk-Sevs Greene-Mueller Smith-Butcher Blackwood Still much better than whatever was rolled out in the years past
  8. Correction I’ll take 2nd to bottom slot in the first round
  9. I really like Carrick’s game - I think he has some potential - he was a leading playoff scorer of the Toronto AHL team a few years back
  10. Blame for this monstrosity should be evenly divided in three: 1) Management - you can’t tell me there haven’t been at least a few NHLers to sign in the off-season. Even if they weren’t household names but couple of solid 3rd liners who could play 2nd if asked to would alleviate some pressure on young kids and/or Hall. Why old, “out-of-touch with modern NHL” Lou was able to find some to bolster the depth? Why not go after DeHaan? Even during the season - for example Niederreiter was available via trade 2) Coaching staff - seems like every team is outcouching them collectively. What does Grier even do? How does Hynes not adjust at all on the road all season long? 3) Players - other than Coleman and Nico everyone from the “wave of the future” either not progressing or regressing
  11. Sending Blackwood down was stupid - sure team, every team who has a chance to ride a young promising goalie does it regardless of standings. I mentioned Philly the other day, look at Binnington in St Louis. It gives any team a good shot of energy in addition to forcing them to pay attention to details defensively. Carry 3 goalies, it’s not the end of the world - just don’t send best goalie of the three down
  12. Hasn’t Elliott disappeared off the face of the Earth with phantom IR for eternity?
  13. Can anyone explain why Philly gets to ride Hart to make their young guys feel good about themselves and win like 8 in a row while Blackwood is sent down
