  1. If there’s a coach worth keeping an eye on, its Mark Dennehy in Bingo. Once Hynes was fired and he got to deploy his own system, Bingo was the hottest team in the A. If Bingo can graduate a number of guys to Jersey (lord knows we need to), he’d be very familiar with the roster. He’s 52 so not quite an up and comer, but he’s someone on my radar if Ruff is only here a few years.
  2. Dude, relax. Point is a lot of people were upset when Lemaire came in meanwhile there was a lot of unseen good. The devils team that lost in the playoffs was flawed. Lemaire being able to get a buy in from Kovalchuk to completely change his style is one of those unseen good things. Tyler Seguin developed into a rock star under Ruff. As did a lot of the young core in Dallas. Team is still a ways away, and if Ruff can have a similar effect on Nico and Hughes we’ll be a lot closer.
  3. The last time we hired a coach that was moaned and groaned about - Lemaire, 10 years ago now - we won the division and begged him to come back the next year to clean up Johnny Macs mess. Lemaire ended up setting the table for Deboer in 11/12. My initial reaction was not positive. However, track record matters and so does experience.
  4. I’ve got to say, stepping back and researching, I was completely wrong with my earlier post. #FlattenTheCurve
  5. Who were those big moves (Gusev, Subban) made to appease? Taylor Hall. Hall ran his mouth at the beginning of the offseason with the comments of moves needing to be made to show a commitment to winning. After making those moves and Hall still not signing, Ray HAD to trade him. Hall supposedly liked Hynes. One of the reasons he wasn’t let go was to appease Hall. Hall made this season completely about himself and it showed in games. There was no team effort, no heart, to a man, every player looked disinterested. When he went into training camp without a contract, it was clear
  6. 100%, could not agree more. If Mac Black is the day one starter and the Hall trade happened in the offseason (as it unquestionably should have) this team is in the playoffs
  7. Waiting for the losers to come in and tell us winning is bad.
  8. Schneider just doesn’t squeeze pucks. Deflection there but still.
  9. The more I think about it, the dumber it gets. Why not hold Gusev on the bench until you have clear possession and can sub him on easily? The only reason Zacha could be out there is to cover Gusevs efensive deficiency’s. Jv coaching points. or you just start with your best! Palms and Nico. Ugh
  10. Zacha out there in OT? Criminal. Supposedly good defensive forward can’t cut off the cross ice breakout pass and the Devils never touch the puck. Nice
  11. Is it the end of the world if they get Lehner for two years and he gets taken in expansion anyway? Signing Lehner buys us time. He’s a stopgap 1B. That’s fine with me.
  12. This isn’t “win now no matter what” this is “let’s show some kind of progress here and not play to be the worst team in the league. Lou’s been gone 4 plus years. Find a new scapegoat
  13. I think you’re misunderstanding, sorry if I wasn’t clear enough. The kids are great and I thought I implied that in my previous post. The Devils losing would show the contrary, that they aren’t game breakers, play drivers, etc. A team in the bottom of the standings indicates that the players stink. Good players win games.
