    GDT: Devils @ Blues 8PM

    Bratt's the opposite of the type of player the Devils would trade, anyway. He's just really not all that good. He's shown flashes, but hasn't put it together. He's cheap and the Devils should hold on to him in case he can ever find consistency in his game.
  2. This is so true. On reddit everyone is saying "wow I cried at this news" and "goodbye to an incredible captain". I don't get it. I liked him early in his career. I disliked him towards the end. And now he's gone. Okay, bye.

    This is super on brand for you

    He mentioned it has that 100 patch. That’s a bad look with anyone who wasn’t around that season. Zajac seems like a great option here.

    He’s a UFA after the season — that return will be less than Hall.

    Pretty sure 37 would cover up really well! You’re welcome in advance!!

    Sort of annoying — if the Canucks miss the playoffs this year, the pick slides to 2021. So we have to hope for a last second slip in to the playoffs and a quick first round exit.

    Hate to say it but if that’s the kind of price a team will pay for Blake Coleman, you have to see what they’ll pay for Kyle Palmieri.

    I have a Blake Coleman jersey and I adore the man but if you aren’t doing a happy dance in your kitchen right now at that return you’re a moron. spectacular fvcking trade my god.
  10. YES THANK YOU GOD YES. i loved 2014 Andy Greene. I couldn’t fvcking stand 2015 on. one of the 2nd round picks from the Subban trade is back, essentially. That’s great.
  11. I commented at you because you asked when I lost my sense of humor. I wanted to give you my reasoning. I do not include you in that list of broken records who repeats the same joke forty times a day.
  12. There's a difference between "he's a solid defensive forward" and "he's one of the best defensive forwards in the league". I didn't mention Pandolfo because there's no comparison to Pandolfo. This forum's favorite player is Blake Coleman. You know what Blake Coleman was doing as a 22 year old? Putting up 28 points as a member of the Miami University RedHawks. As a 23 year old he put up 36 points... as a Miami University Redhawk. At 24 he put up 19 points as an Albany Devil. At 25 he put up 2 points in 30 games as a New Jersey Devil. Boy, he seems really stagnant in his growth, huh? His age 26 season he looked serviceable. His age 27 season he became a fan favorite. His age 28 season makes him the forum's by-far favorite hockey player. Pavel Zacha is growing up as a hockey player. We're watching him grow up in the best league on earth, and not in the Mid-American Conference of the CCHA. I'm disappointed he isn't Barzal. I'm disappointed he isn't Provorov. I'm disappointed he isn't Werenski or Rantanen. But I can also appreciate we're watching a young player grow. Hating Zacha because we took him instead of those guys isn't too different, for me, than hating Nico because we didn't take Heiskanen, Makar or Pettersson. Both of those players make our franchise immensely better, but I still adore Nico Hischier. The same people who tell me I'm not allowed to use "muh age" excuse and "but but but look at his linemates" excuse are currently doing the exact same thing for Jack Hughes. They did the same thing for Nico when he looked barely above replacement level last year. They still cheer for McLeod because maybe he just "hasn't been given a chance". They're repeating it to themselves in the shower with Ty Smith, pretending it's not at all concerning he couldn't crack one of the worst defensive units in the history of our goddamned franchise. I've seen "wow this coaching is ruining INSERT EVERY OTHER DEVILS PLAYER HERE" from fifty people. The first time I've seen someone say "hmm, maybe Pavel Zacha is also on the recieving end of abhorrently fvcking terrible coaching" is three replies above me. But a couple of loud clowns here who contribute to 80% of the daily posts on this website have everyone convinced he's the worst player in the world. They have everyone convinced that it's worse for a 6th overall pick to have 100 points in 253 career games than an 11th overall pick who's less than a year younger than Pavel to have 5 points in 26 career games. They say BARZALLLLLLL and PROVOROVVVVV and pretend we didn't draft McLeod over McAvoy and Chychrun. So yeah, @Colorado Rockies 1976 my sense of humor may have just been better a year ago. Or maybe a year of coming to this forum, seeing the exact same played out and exhausted jokes repeated by the same two people twenty five times a day has finally rubbed the fun off of what used to be my favorite little internet home.
  13. “21 year old Pavel Zacha is not as good as 27 year old former MVP Taylor Hall”, positively riveting analysis like always CR.
  14. He scored the game winning goal in the must-win game to get the Devils into the playoffs against the leafs in 2017, on an absolute beauty too. but it seems ridiculous (see: right on par with you paste eaters) to say “he hasn’t scored much when it counts”. Since, ya know, he hasn’t played much when it counts either. This team is dog sh!t for the second calendar year in a row.
  15. So my man Pavel Zacha is now 5th on the team in points and 1st in short handed points while being 12th on the team in average time on ice. he’s starting to turn into a player, y’all.
  16. Okhotyuk is going to be a stud. I love everything about his game.
  17. I fvcking hate the Florida Panthers.
  18. I went to one game in Wells Fargo with a devils jersey In 2009ish. When the devils scored my friend and I would stand up, fist bump, and immediately sit down. We didn’t cheer or boo otherwise. We knew the reputation and didn’t want to make trouble. in the second period an old woman said “devils suck!” and it was adorable, so I replied “look at the standings!”. She screamed “DO YOU SUCK YOUR DADS D!CK WITH THAT MOUTH LITTLE BOY?”. Shocking doesn’t begin to describe it. in the third period the devils took a pretty decent lead, so we stopped standing up or anything really. Let’s not poke the bear, right? Well security came up fifteen minutes later to escort us from the Building because multiple people reported us for “cursing out a grandma”. On our walk out she was making the “suck my d!ck” hand motion to loud cheers from the rest of the section. Even the ushers were laughing. Having had enough, I called her a geriatric cvnt. Oops. Two philly fans rushed at us and were pulled back by cops. We were told it was safest to take off our jerseys as we left the stadium and put them in a bag they gave us. Someone recognized my friend and shoved him into a wall. I called over the police who were guarding the exits and they suggested we take cabs back to his apartment (he lived a metro stop away). i will never step foot in that stadium again, and when the city Philadelphia burns to the ground I will be there to piss on the ashes.
  19. You’re not stuck here, man. The only thing you do is say how much you dislike everyone. Nobody is stopping you from leaving. i can honestly say I will miss the posts that you make with effort if you do leave; you have a lot to say and you’re usually pretty articulate. But man, I won’t miss the endless posts telling us how to be fans.
  20. Really excited about this game!!!! and other assorted funny lies I tell myself

    Dude, I think SD got your log-in.

    He's averaging a full 2 minutes per game more than Gusev. I think he's seeing the ice plenty for his quality of play this season.

    This is a nice thought, but it's just literally not true. Kakko's top linemates in terms of TOI so far this season, in order: Brett Howden, Brendan Lemieux, Filip Chytil. I'm curious how you came to that conclusion when you followed it up with "I haven't watched Rangers games".

    You posted 4 impressive highlight videos, calling them "unimpressive" in an apparent "gotcha" to me. You didn't post the three-dozen other games where he's looked invisible, lazy, disinterested, and way over his head. There is plenty of time for Jack, a teenager, to turn his game around. But if you're going to pretend like he isn't one of the most disappointing things that's happened this season, I'm going to vehemently disagree with you.

    Forum darling? Are you literally mentally disabled? Who the fvck else on the forum even remotely tolerates Pavel Zacha? he just simply doesn’t look... good. At all. Maybe he’ll turn into a good player but right now he’s not passing the stats test, the underlying numbers test, the computer nerd stats test, the eye test... anything. He flies around, turns the puck over, shows no interest in defense and then repeats it the next day. more concerning to me is that he looks worse today than he did at the beginning of the season. There’s simply no growth, no positive signs whatsoever. pavel Zacha wasn’t a cant-miss, franchise altering number one overall player. Hold Hughes to the nico standard, and he’s that beer-leaguer who skates 200 miles an hour, has a gold tinted visor and still ends up with 0 goals and MAYYYYBE one or two secondary assists every game.
