  1. Hockey Players of NJDevs -- Help!

    If you have carpet in your house or some kind of basement cement floor, screw around with a stick and golf ball. Start slow (there’s plenty of YouTube videos) and work your way up to moving around fast as you can. Make sure the stick you are playing around with is shorter than your ice stick because the two inch difference will screw you up on ice. The name of the game is skating, and unfortunately the only way to get better at it is by doing it. Roller has its pluses and minuses. I started playing roller and some maneuvers on ice come off very awkward for me. I can stop on a dime in roller which is more difficult than ice but my ice stop isn’t nearly as smooth because it doesn’t feel natural. I tell all my players cycling is 100 times better than running to get into hockey shape. Activates the quads much more. Consider a cycle (I hate calling it spin) class. I can attest to Crasher and yoga, I don’t do yoga but get a foam roller and it’ll be your best friend. Expect significant lower back pain when you start, it’ll go away.
  2. Jacob Josefson Goes Home

    The Tedenby dropoff will always mystify me. He did some good things and the next year was invisible. Tedenby was a bust. No use. JJ is was a useful player at least, that’s why I hesitate to call him a bust.
  3. Jacob Josefson Goes Home

    Always thought he was going to break through. If he was a fourth rounder, we’d be pleased with his career. Sucks he never got it going. Useful player but had the 1st round label working against him.
  4. Tavares or Carlson

    Do we really want to blow a ton of assets after all we gave up this calendar year for one year of Karlsson? Coming off a down year? A knee injury no one is sure how severe? While K is better than C, no argument here, one is “free”, one is not.
  5. Tavares or Carlson

    The Devils are going to have some money to blow this offseason. They have the money to be in the running for two of the biggest names out there. If you had the choice to pursue only one of them, who would it be and why? I'm not sure myself, both are tremendous players but I do have concerns for each. I have a feeling Tavares will age poorly, and I wonder how much Carlson poaches secondary assists on the PP. Have at it.
  6. John Hynes in Review

    Agree. However, assistants play a much bigger role in hockey than football. Running the PP/PK. Drawing up the plays. If he can consistently surround himself with quality assistants, he will be in good shape.

    You can’t hide defense.
  8. You'll never win with Schneider

    The catastrophic meltdown was directed at the team blowing the 9 point lead, not Schneider exclusively. Last night I agree, h did a good job.
  9. Devils vs. Lightning Series Discussion

    Wood on the fourth line hasn’t been talked about but is ideal for this series. He can do Wood things, like running around and not be relied upon to score, and not having poise with the puck. Mojo is definitely a better distributor for Zacha and Maroon. If we can fix start going even on special teams, we’re going to be in good shape. I wouldn’t be surprised if Stafford pops one in on the PP, he does a good job staying ready in the slot. Mojo on the right half board on the second PP sets Stafford up as a righty perfectly. I’m starting to think Stafford doesn’t get put in without Mojo being back. That said, we lose a killer in Grabner. But the only problem on the kill has been primarily defense. Perhaps the logic is “we can’t stop this PP, lets screw it and load up ours.”
  10. GDT: Game 2 - Devils at Lightning - 14 April @ 3pm Eastern

    Greene gtfo. That sh!t would be unacceptable in Bing
  11. GDT: Devils@Lightning, 4/12/18, 7:00pm, MSG+

    Not happy but not overly concerned. Frustrating, yet correctable, mistakes. Stop running around in the Dzone, stay in the house. Can’t panic until you lose one at home. Get Seevs in there now, Bratt now and mybe Mojo if we drop game 2.
  12. GDT: Devils@Lightning, 4/12/18, 7:00pm, MSG+

    Ranger trash bag Grabner invisible again. Mojo and Bratt in for Maroon and Grabner.
  13. GDT: Devils@Lightning, 4/12/18, 7:00pm, MSG+

    Wood Zacha maroon has been a sh!t show
  14. GDT: Devils@Lightning, 4/12/18, 7:00pm, MSG+

    Think that ones on Nico. Nico has to read Lovejoy. Lovejoy stayed on crease because there were 2 Fs coming out of corner. If Nico sits high slot there’s no where to go and Mueller was pressuring the puck.

    No communication between center an D down low. Hall also needs to recognize and get lower. Not feeling too good seeing this line getting beat.
