    2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

    Nonesense??? Man were you watching the same game as everyone else??? We have one.....I repeat one highly talented player on the roster and that's Hall. Nico did very well for a rookie. Any given day one team could beat another.....I get that. But Tampa had serious talent where the Devils just do not! Devils have a bunch of money to spend this offseason and I hope they get Hall some help.

    They did, but we gave up a 2nd and 3rd for Maroon and that clown Grabner. They may have taken a 2nd and rd for him. Kane is a difference maker and they are not. Just my .02.

    2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

    I never write them off until they are officially out. But they are being outplayed by higher skilled players. They had a ton of money to spend at the deadline and failed to do so. Grabner isn't even playing, so we lost a second and Rykov. I like Maroons size and ability to screen the goalie, but no skill. Just look at the break away last night and it says it all. The Devils made a ton of trades, but mostly minor league. We lost two picks in 2018 and not much to show in return. Wondering if we could have traded the 2nd and 3rd for Kane??? Hopefully they get Hall some real offensive help in the offseason.

    [Official] Damien Brunner signed to multi-year deal

    Great signing. Shows ownerships committment to winning. Could easily go deep into the playoffs with these lines.

    Your thought on today / about the team so far ?

    Is noone slightly worried about this defense??? Larsson - Fayne Greene - Salvador Volchenkov - Zidlicky Urbom, Gelinas,Harrold

    Kovy signs a 4 year deal, no money announced

    So if Kovy does come back to the NHL does the 250k per come off our cap???

    Kovalchuk Retired Effective Immediately?

    We are so screwed. We just went from little to no offense. I wonder if he was tirred on getting 'delayed' checks from the boss??? He'll play in the KHL when he is eligible. Couple decent FA still on the market. We better grab them now.

    CLARKSON SIGNS w/TORONTO $36.75M / 7yrs

    I like Clarkie and would love to see him back next year, but he's not going to carry a team. So to overpay for him would be a crime. The Devil's style of play fit him perfectly. Not sure how he will fit into other systems....guess we'll see.

    Who do you think the Devils will draft?

    Nich or Monahan!
  10. Would have been a nice addition. We could have definitely used a skilled player the likes of Semin. Pretty concerned considering Parise and Poni are gone with no additions. Elias is getting older and bound to slow a little. Kovi is great offensively, but defensively is a nightmare. Henrique nor Clarkie will have the same production. Maybe Lou is waiting for the CBA outcome, but in the mean time all quality players are gone. I hate to be negative, but you can't lose production like that and expect to compete. Maybe Lou will pull a rabbit of of his hat before the season begins.

    NSFW: Cam Janssen interview

    I for one think he is a funny SOB!!!!! People need to turn the station if they don't like what's being said.....just like I do when Obama comes on the tv. CJ is blatenly honest and I respect him for that. Hell he didn't start the fat broad joke but he admitted to going there on occasion. The guy is awesome. Let's go Devils!!!!!!
  12. Really curious what everyone would say about Marty if Lot didn't pay him and he went to the Habs??? Regardless of how you feel about ZP, there is a huge void to fill. Not sure who Lou could convince to play with the Devils, but he needs to get it done. IMO.....Kovy has no business wearing the C. Way too many turnovers.....pretty much a defensive nightmare. A leader has to lead by example......bottom line!
  13. Come on folks.....don't start hating the guy because he made a career decision. Anyone on this board would have taken the deal he took. There is no such thing as loyality when you are talking millions per year. This franchise is not financially stable right now, so I can't blame him for leaving. Anyone who said they never liked him is fooling themselves. He was the best C the Devils had since Stevens. And thank God he didn't go to the Flyers, Pitt or Rangers.

    Zidlicky Injured?

    One cheap shot after the next. Someone was eventually going to get hurt. I am truly surprised Zubs is still able to skate. That guy took more cheap shots than anyone on the ice. Let's Go Devils!!!!

    ESPN Power Rankings

    Burnside and Scott Cullen have always had an axe to grind with the Devils. Any team that goes 20-2-2 deserves to be in the top 5 regardless of their record. None of their methodologies say anything about their record carrying the most weight, but obviously it does. What's amazing is the team has done this without Parise. They also had the emotional loss of losing the team captain. When they make the playoff it will be a great story. When they win the cup it will the the greatest come back in NHL history!
