  1. It should be Hynes first, But everything I hear about Ray is he holds on until off season. My money is on Hall before Christmas, as far as trades go I like Montreal as a trade partner Avs are also loaded with D just not sure what their cap is at. Even the 80's came to an end This can't last forever! Can it?
  2. Sevs and PK, Not sure that's the best pairing? Please Win!!! LGD!!!!

    Agreed Hynes is a problem but I also believe he is only part of the problem. With really no quick fix in sight. The coaches around him are also an issue. Assistants Alain Nasreddine has reallly been a mess, Who replaces him? Many say Scott Stevens but not sure he would even take the job but he would at least demand accountability. Rick Kowalsky, lets face it as much as a popular choice he was, our PP has really sucked with him! Who do you bring in there? Changing just the head coach just does not solve all our issues. I get it its a start but this is a much deeper problem with no quick fix, In my Opinion.

    I have never been a fan of making a change for the sake of a shake up, I am more of a evidence based person ( probably due to my job) and everything is pointing towards this being a coaching problem. I say that very broadly it is more than just the head coach. Our PP has been stagnant for many years now, Our PK was not bad last year has turned upside down with no sign of repair. What is very worrying is when you start to lose the locker room that is I'm afraid when the coach is the one who is most at fault. Are we at that point? Do you blow up the coaching staff? Who is available that would make a difference? I also don't believe anyone has the stomach for another rookie coach. Like many have said this is a very early part of our season to blow it all up and start thinking about another high draft pick. My feeling is they will try and patch work the coaching staff until we hit point of being eliminated. If that point happens I don't even think Ray's job is safe. I really hope a turn around starts as early as Thursday against a bitter rival. Lets Go NJD !!!!!
  5. I laughed and cried all in the same post, never did that before! Hoping for some puck control and and please watch the turnovers.. Especially in our end! LGD
  6. That's what I saw... Thanks. I think we might see Zetterlund in camp but not so sure about Okhotyuk.
  7. Wasn't Okhotyuk listed as injured? Surprised to see him on the list. Hes 18 and plays a physical game on D. One of the D-men I was hoping to see more of.
  8. I can not see it being about money unless Ray really is low balling him, As someone else mentioned its most likely term, NJ probably does not want to commit to long term contract with his hot/cold play. I would really like to see him play this season he brings a defensive special teams edge that we could use but I wouldn't be to upset if he does a Kovy!
  9. He is a puck moving defense man and a PP specialist playing right side, even if he did not stand us up in free agency for the Rags there is no room on the right for a puck moving D. Only type of defense man we need is physical minded stay at home D-man preferably playing the left side!
  10. Its a Fair contract, I believe it will also gives Butcher time to show what he can do with a better supporting cast. Now on to the Hall watch! oh and Zacha!
  11. Good article about this off-season compared to 91, https://www.nj.com/devils/2019/07/is-this-the-devils-best-offseason-ever-hold-on-1991-would-like-a-word.html The true comparison can only be made with a championship! But excited for this season is a huge understatement!
  12. If Hall does not see this teams major increase of supporting talent then he has already decided to leave NJ and we will cash in with a very nice trade. I just don't see Shero doing a Lou!
  13. Love Chatter that comes true!!!
  14. Wow starter as chatter, Confirmed! Hell Yea! Lets Go Devils
