  1. Sophomore Slumps

    It's not really a thing. You have guys riding extreme percentages in their first year that make them seem better than they are and their improvement doesn't catch up to the regression in year 2. Like Tri said, year 2 crushes year 1 in more cases.
  2. Tavares or Carlson

    Then you change the coaching staff.

    Those teams were very different and the Devils have a lot more in common with the Avs than Leafs. Sure, trading Zajac is no problem but you'd have to pay someone to take him. And then fill the center spot with someone.
  4. Tavares or Carlson

    If they sign Carlson/acquire Karlsson they're moving Severson, so factor that in.

    Wild would be a good destination? You'd have to take similar salary back since they're basically capped out, and that doesn't even factor in that there's no way they would want Zajac. Buying out Greene? Why? Devils aren't in need of cap space. lmao @ letting Clowe walk, he hasn't played in 3 seasons. "hope Boyle resigns or just buy him out" Resign? He has another year. Why would be resign and why would NJ buy him out?
  7. Tavares or Carlson

    I want no part of Carlson for the price he's gonna get (7-8mx7). Tavares on the other hand...

    Absolutely, they'll build their prospect cupboard faster than any expansion team ever has.
  9. 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

    Sure, but considering how brutal the rules were for the previous expansion teams, it's a pretty low bar. It's not like they were plucking proven and consistent 30 goal scorers left and right. And ultimately, so much of their success hinged on Tallon gifting them Marchessault and Smith. I don't think anyone is talking about William Karlsson, 40 goal scorer, if he doesn't get Marchessault on his line. I am veeeeery curious how next season will play out for them. Might not be the same thing when you've signed a bunch of guys to extensions and they're not the castoffs anymore.

    Just double shift Butcher or put Severson there.
  11. You'll never win with Schneider

    Ah, I don't know about that. But I certainly think it's his to lose, which to me is very different.

    Nobody thought they were elite players on October 1. Maybe Fleury, and JAM had proven to be a really good player, as was Rielly Smith and a few other guys, but c'mon. If you thought William '15 Goals In Past 162 Games' Karlsson was elite going into this season...the Devils have a lot of elite players too!
  13. GAME 3: Tampa Bay @ New Jersey. 730 PM EST, CNBC, MSG+

    Ugh that was amazing. Haven't been this jacked after a Devils game in *checks calendar* 6 years. I want Brian Boyle to be my dad. Just don't let it spill into Game 4 with some stupid penalties.
  14. Devils vs. Lightning Series Discussion

    He's not cleared to play yet, but that could obviously happen at any time.
  15. GDT: Game 2 - Devils at Lightning - 14 April @ 3pm Eastern

    Glass was half full for me after Game 1, but this game was more of the same and at some point the glass becomes half empty. I don't think it has to do with effort - if anything they try too hard and deviate from their structure. Nico's mistakes on the first goals in Game 1 are an example of what I mean. They don't execute on their breakouts, the transition game is garbage and Tampa are winning the inside position in the slot area. It has less to do with grit and brawn than being able to tie up sticks and getting body position. That's 3 of the goals against last night. Piling on Andy Greene has been a season long thing for many people, I've avoided it because there's just no good alternative for the top pairing, but he's been terrible in this series (along with several other d-men). If anything, this series so far has highlighted what Shero needs to address in the coming year (not that he shouldn't have known prior to the series).
