  1. C'mon. If you are a true Devils fan, this guy is like Marty. You love him and want him to be a top priority in FA. He is still producing. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I'll say 2 years 9 million like Marty. We've all taken this guy for granted at some point, but he is still playing so well at his age. He is sooooooooooooooooooooooo hockey smart its ridiculous.
  2. Well, I am a Devils fan. You guys don't have to be dicks about it.
  3. Umm it wouldn't have been an issue if we gave him years rather than a 1 year? Just saying. I for one am not totally surprised at how this season has gone as a result
  4. hopefully the defense next year defends more
  5. The answer is no. No fvcking luck involved. Had we extended Parise long term rather than giving him a 1 yr 6 mil deal we'd be right in cup contention again. Sorry to beat a dead horse but it keeps twitching.
  6. Yes. it is exciting. We are on the brink of a very new and different era for the Devils. Sad? yes. But definitely exciting as well.
  7. Chico finally got real after the game when he talked about how the Devils have made 'certain' (average at best I think he meant) goalies look like legends. We outshoot and outplay teams and have nothing to show for it. He also reluctantly admitted how we lack the high end skill to finish when we need to. This team works fvcking hard to win every battle but that only takes you so far. Sometimes goals have to come easy and they just never do for this team. Chico always tries to sugarcoat things and be an optimist so I love that he got real because I agree entirely.
  8. damn id love to have j-bouw. I see a lot of hate for him on hockey sites and whatnot. ive always liked his skill set and I don't think hes ever really been in a system to where he can flourish. his cap hit is high but the guy can play. the blues are gonna love him I think.
  9. ive always liked j-bouw. too bad his cap hit is so absurd...

    POWERPLAY help if nothing else!!!!!!!!! cmon guys you saw it tonight. looks very anemic. remember getting an old rental shanahan??? it would be like that but better. only at the right price obviously.
  11. its a great move for them. by now we've seen the formula theyre going with and it works. with the heavy contracts of malkin/Crosby/fleury, they fill their roster very well with young talent and aging veterans. because lets face it, Crosby and Malkin can have chemistry with ANYONE
  12. they probably want Zajac in return to pair him up with Parise. Not gonna happen
  13. hate to beat a dead horse here but I still cant believe we went from cup contention to a fringe playoff team. fvcking Zach parise
  14. once marty loses a few games in a row ill panic. but for now lets just bide our time til he gets back and give us some stability and poise.
  15. Im happy for you Caron, congrats. Kovalchuk is very fun to watch live. Enjoy!
  16. are you serious with these threads? everyone is so fvcking in love with goals and assists. Zubie does all the unsung sh!t like winning battles along the boards and creating space for his teammates. This thread MAY have made sense 4 years ago, but not now. good grief. delete this thread and the bench kovy one.
  17. this is the dumbest thread of all time. are you even watching the games? cmon bro. hes creating chances like whoa and being a GREAT teammate. Hes become an all-around great player. He even gave up an empty netter last night to give someone else the goal. pay attention.
  18. lets let this intriguing move play out a little bit before we roll our eyes
  19. just need a legit winger who can chip in 15 goals with good speed. soooo someone like sykora, but faster and a little tougher. easy right?
  20. there MUST be some sort of trade in the works...or at least being attempted
  21. i agree. it definitely is weird seeing him in another sweater and i still cant believe he left. We were 2 wins from a cup......if we had won, i would totally understand why he would leave to go home. but we were so close and ill never fully understand his logic. it just totally sucks. he better NEVER come close to sniffing the cup ever again. I will boo him whenever he plays at the Rock again.
  22. Hes definitely worth this contract. Goals and assists arent everything, people. He does a lot of other things exceptionally well. Faceoffs, backchecking, corners, etc. Hooray for Trav!
  23. i think elias should be captain. if only because ill have to get my kovy sweater A changed to a C; which seems like a pain in the arse
