  1. Boys have a lot more jump this period. Nice to see.
  2. Wonder how quickly until mfitz calls Hughes a bust?
  3. It’s amazing you could watch that period and say the devils have, and don’t need, a goalie.
  4. Lol Jesus this team is still unwatchable. Devils needs; 1. goalie 2. everything else
  5. I know who is shooting that, but Jesus Christ that has to be saved.
  6. Despite the score, it doesn’t even look like we’re playing the same sport as Washington.
  7. You said "somewhat of an above average player" while he was here, which I think is a silly moniker to apply to the guy who will hold the most points-per-game in a Devils sweater in franchise history for a long time. If that's not elite production, I don't know what the fvck you were expecting. You also said "I think maybe I've seen too much hockey, because I seem to look at things more collectively." which made me laugh, because it implies that everyone else in this discussion hasn't.
  8. Well that's a pretty silly thing to say. He put up 208 points in 211 career games as a Devil. You know who else, in the history of the franchise, averaged that many points per game? Nobody else.
  9. Hey @SterioDesign, since you're my unpaid unofficial brand artist (see avatar), thoughts on making me a Pavel Zacha with Mickey ears avatar? Can't look at Mickey Hallsey any more
  10. Pretty standard response? I guess. I’ve been on Instagram a while and can’t really remember any former players saying bye to their team and fanbase mid season. I’m probably wrong, but oh well. that, plus Taylor saying “I’ll always remember devils fans chanting MVP” in his exit presser... I don’t know, I guess I just liked it. He didn’t ever choose New Jersey, he played fewer games for the Devils than guys like Mike Rupp and Stephen Gionta and Miles Wood and Jon Merrill and Anton Volchenkov, but he still made a few comments (that are not required or even expected) about the fans even after what appears to be a bit of a messy breakup. i have never seen a season like 2017 Taylor Hall on any team I’ve ever cheered for. Ever. I don’t think I ever will again. That will always have a special place in my heart.
  11. fvck Henrique? What on earth? Why?
  12. Taylor Hall’s Instagram post got me a little choked up. this felt like a messy breakup after a great relationship. I think I’ll be able to cheer for him the rest of his career. ill never forget 2017.
  13. The Devils are a betting favorite to win tonight's game (-120). I wonder how many times the rest of the season that will be true? Less than 10, I'd bet.
  14. Shero isn’t the only reason Pittsburgh won a cup (and went to two) but pretending he had no hand in that is just silly. That just seems so very unlikely.
  15. The best players always win Stanley Cups? Worddddd that sounds dope, congrats in advance to McDavid and Kucherov and MacKinnon. Oh and if this goes to other sports, I'm pumped to find out how many Super Bowls Marino won. And Mike Trout! Modern day Mickey Mantle! He must have five or six World Series! This just seems unlikely to me, so I'll be rooting for them to suffer a few major injuries and miss the playoffs entirely, giving us a top-15ish pick.
  16. Fault? I don't know if you can say it's Conte and Lou's fault, but there is zero doubt that they set the franchise back at least five years before they left. As much as I love Zacha -- that was their parting gift. Imagine a Provorov on the blueline instead, and tell me we're not a more competitive hockey team? Here are the only forwards that were under the age of 30 who were top-25 in average time-on-ice the last year Lou was here: Adam Henrique and Damien Brunner. That's it, that's the list. You're wildly underestimating how bare the cupboard was when Lou left. No, I'm not thrilled we're still a bottom feeder 4 seasons later, but there are things to be really excited about with this Devils team. And, for the most part, I can't point to an area where Shero has really failed.
  17. With such an embarrassing, narrow-minded view of the entire situation, it's impossible to even attempt a rebuttal.
  18. I don't know how the hell some of you can look at the two best / brightest players on the team are 18 and 20, our best defensive prospect since Larsson is 19 years old and say "well it's CLEARRR that shero thought the rebuild was OVERRRR." No. It's not. It's not fvcking over or "through" or "at the end" or "towards the conclusion" or "fin" or "nearly done" or "in the past" or "soon to be complete". When Hughes and Nico are in their prime and we're still dogsh!t, panic then. Now just understand that we have building blocks to be a really fvcking good team in a few years and hope it happens without assuming that Ray Shero trading a couple of 2nd round picks means he thought we were a Cup contender this season and the whole plan has gone to sh!t.
  19. Instead of acquiring prospects we should really acquire more quality NHL players. Like, uhhh PK Subban and Wayne Simmonds. Just off the top of my head, let’s target them? also isn’t there a guy in Russia right now that has “the next Panarin” label? I’ve seen some people say he’s an immediate plug-and-play top line winger. Let’s get him!!!! realistically, who in the fvcking world is on a competing team that is going to give up a young nhl ready player in the middle of a playoff race for a few months of injury-prone Taylor hall? Nobody, that’s who.
  20. You’re giving up on the three prospects before they’ve even gotten here? It might be Mirco Mueller. It probably won’t be. Karlsson was fvcking infinitely more valuable than Taylor hall at the time of the trade — he was an undisputed top-2 defenseman IN THE ENTIRE LEAGUE. He also made it clear he’d be amenable to an extension — something Taylor likely did not do. im not throwing any parades but I’m glad it’s over and I hope they pan out.
  21. Were you expecting Miro Heiskanen? This is a guy who’s been injured, largely underperforming this year. He’s had 3 years in his entire career where he’s performed like a top-20 player in the sport, and he’s dead-set on becoming an unrestricted free agent in July. its a first round pick, a BIG body defenseman who might not fvcking suck, two “who knows” prospects and a 3rd, likely 2nd, possibly first round pick. thats a good return, regardless of how grumpy you want to be.
  22. No, we’re guaranteed to at least get 1 first round pick out of the deal. If they win the lotto this year, the conditional picks shift back a season.
  23. For all the dinguses who started screaming before we found out the details, there is a GUARANTEED first round pick PLUS another conditional pick.
  24. I’m underwhelmed but I’m happy that it’s over. I’m also adding Daniel to ignore for a week for my own goddamned fvcking sanity.
