  1. The 1989 Smythe Division semis where the heavily favored Calgary Flames took on an upstart Vancouver Canucks team led by a young Trevor Linden.

    The Canucks gave the Flames a fit and Vancouver succumbed to Calgary in a classic game 7 in OT.

    Great series and the Flames rolled to their first and only Cup after that classic series against underdog Vancouver.

    Based on the number of likes mfitz has, I’d say he’s proven and then some.

    As for the Devils’ Fitz, I would be willing to give him a shot.  

    Then we can call the Devils the MisFitz.

    Yeah, I’d do it but at what cost? He’s locked up through 2026, it will take a lot. 

    Assuming it’d have to be Nico plus more. 

    Maybe Jack Hughes plus.

    I am willing to do it, but Blackwood is untouchable.

    Eichel and Blackwood would be an excellent foundation for another championship team in NJ.



    I put together a very generous offer to the Sabres fans and they came back at me 50/50 about the trade.

  4. I am fine with Fitz and Marty running the show.

    What the hell they have to lose when the whole Shero thing turned into a disaster?


    And with these two trades, the narrative of the organization moving forward has shifted into a positive light.

    Building around Nico and Jack and, MAYBE, they found a number one goalie thru this miserable season is fine with me.

    All true.  Trading guys like Palms and Gusev would further gut the team and throw any progress they've made away resetting the nearly decade of struggling back to the starting line. Again not saying it's not the right thing to do but the org needs to turn the corner here and not be a bottom 5 team soon before the apathy grows in the fanbase to a point of no return for many. If we're moving back to the starting line find a way to gut the backend because it's a massive concern from PK on down.  Collecting draft choices is ok but the odds of drafting an NHL ready defenseman is probably asking a lot, especially when you need so many. 

    Anyway should be an interesting week leading up to the TDL.

    They are building around Nico and Jack and Blackwood could a legit number one goalie, which would make the process of a winner become a reality sooner rather than later.

    If they can get that young D man from Buffalo (Pilut) for Palmieri, I am all for it. Would Palmieri go to Buffalo though?

  6. I think the GM job is Marty's to lose at this point.

    Give him a shot and see what he can do. What is there to lose at this point.

    Marty should have a good building block with Nico and Hughes 1-2 down the middle.

    I think Marty has the understanding that this organization needs to start developing Dman prospects and go from there.

    I think the biggest reason Shero got fired is that he had 4+ years to develop quality defenseman and NOT ONE turned up during his time here. 

    Just my cents.

  7. This team has been shut out THREE times in 15 games.

    And offense was supposed to be this teams strength?

    That in itself is freaking PATHETIC.

    I have flushed things down the toilet that have been more useful than this pathetic hockey team.

    They need to shake things up. Either a big trade or firing Hynes. Maybe both.

  8. I think it’s official that this is an awful hockey team and I really don’t know if firing Hynes will do anything.

    It would be like putting a bandaid on a decapitation.

    For me, Ty Smith not being able to make the club ON THIS dman core is all I needed to know as to how bad this team is.

    This team simply isn’t worth our time and energy.

    But when the Devils are bad, it makes me not care too much at all about the NHL and that’s really sad.

  9. If they can get a quality defenseman or goalie, I am all for trading Hall.

    The only way to get out of this mess is to start fixing the backend of the team. Case closed.

    But, the Devils are in a pickle because Hall's value is pretty low right now.

  10. This season is already over and it’s freaking October 14th for fvck sake.

    If you want a chance at this season NOT being over, there needs to be a new voice with a new strategy in there NOW. Not tomorrow or a week from now or a month from now..........
