    2018 NFL Season

    Since I'm a little anal when it comes to threads, I'll start one for the 2018 season, which I guess officially starts with free agency. Won't rehash everything we've already talked about, except that Jordy Nelson was released, and I imagine will end up on the Patriots because of course. The Pats are also reportedly trying to sign Suh. It' the Patriots' world, and we're just living in it.

    Well, they moved the game back to LA. Frankly I don’t see the point of playing a game in a borderline third world country in the first place, but what do I know. As for Goodell, he’s made the owners much richer than they were and manages to beat the crap out of the players union come CBA negotiation time. So he’s going to be around for a long time still to come.
  3. You could take out the first and Kadri perhaps.
  4. If McLeod continues at the pace he's been at for the past couple of games, I think the Leafs would do that in a second as it solves their cap issues for the foreseeable future and they don't have to worry about an offer sheet to Matthews or Marner. From the Devils standpoint though, I would not give up a first for this year unless there's a big turn around.
  5. The Devils can afford to give out at least one giant contract for someone who currently isn't in the organization and there aren't any awards given out for most efficient use of cap space and it certainly doesn't amount to more wins. So the issue if the Devils decide to go after Nylander should not be how much you have to pay him, but what you have to give up for him so far as assets.

    But don't forget that Tannehill is a Texas guy. Although half the QBs in the league are, lol

    Last night's win obviously helped Dak's case. But if they finish under .500, I can see them making a switch. But yeah, I guess if they do it, it'll only be if the Dolphins cut Tannehill and they can have him compete for the starting job.

    Craig Carton convicted of fraud

    Would love to be this guy's shrink. The feds had an airtight case on this guy, but he still chose to go to trial. That probably cost him a few hundred grand in attorneys' fees and extra time in prison. Did he really think he was innocent or did he think he's smarter than the US Attorneys' office.

    You know I've never been a Tannehilll fanboy, but I'm going to go ahead and disagree with you.

    Wonder if Dallas would trade for Tannehill? Don’t know if their cap situation would permit it, but he’d be a good fit there I think.

    Zacha to Bingo

    One idea might be to trade him to the Flyers for someone like German Rubstov. Apparently the Flyers were pretty high on Zacha at the draft.

    They have more information and certainly more experience. But it's not worth anything if they have poor judgment or value the wrong things.

    That doesn't cut it here. You had someone in Point that did nothing but produce. You don't need to know the first thing about scouting to realize that in the third round you take someone with upside over a guy who produced at the same level as the Devils sixth round pick this past year. Go back to the 2014 draft thread and even I said draft Point when it was getting to the third round (I might have even said it in the second round). In other words, I have proven to be a better scout than David Conte in his last five years, and all I did was read a few draft previews.

    Devils 2018-2019 news and notes thread

    Point is small. Conte was obsessed with drafting big players at the time even if they didn't produce all that much and even if they weren't particularly skilled. Was looking for that elusive next Milan Lucic.

    Devils 2018-2019 news and notes thread

    I'm serious that it's a close between what makes me more depressed hockey-wise, the Rangers doing well or hearing about the latest awesome thing that Point has done.

    Devils 2018-2019 news and notes thread

    I think I might be willing to see the Rangers win another Cup or two in the near future in exchange for some KHL team giving Brayden Point a truckload of money to play over there for the rest of his career so I don't have to be constantly reminded that we could be an elite team right now if not for David Conte.
  21. Ugh, that brings back memories of me actually taking the bait. The “prize” is that you have to sit in on a timeshare pitch. They called me s couple of times until I said I wasn’t interested. Basically the plot of a South Park episode.

    2018-19 Around the League Thread

    If the Devils traded for Nylander and extended him at the salary he is likely to get would not really cut into the team's cap flexibility. That's especially the case if Bratt is the main piece going to Toronto. He doesn't make anything now, but if he's a good as people hope he is, his next contract is probably in the range of $3/$4 million AAV, which is just the money you're giving to a better player who is taking his place. The other silver lining is that Zacha should not be getting a big contract AAV-wise, maybe something similar to what they gave Wood. Even if he never produces offensively, there's still a role for him on the team. The Devils just need to avoid giving out a Lucic type deal. If they can manage that, they have the cap space to bring in at least two very good players that aren't in the organization right now that they don't have to draft.

    Is this just a euphemistic way of saying "will help casions make more accurate odds"? Nevertheless, this will be good for the league and the fans (those who don't gamble anyway) in that it should bring in more revenue, which tends to make everyone happy unless one side gets really greedy.

    2018-19 Around the League Thread

    I think it's more than a pipe dream. I just don't see how Toronto can afford him capwise when they need to sign Matthews and Marner next year. The price for Matthews goes up even further if Toronto does poorly without him. And even so, there is an appreciable chance he gets an offer sheet or there's certainly enough of a chance that Toronto can't mess around there. Then you add the fact that Kapanen might require a bigger raise than anticipated and they're really thin at defense. It might not be us, but again, it's negligent not to inquire.
