  1. The weird part for was............... I just went to the Devils website and I saw their first second round pick was 24th overall and I immediately thought that something was wrong. I come here and I see that this trade has happened. Even. if this trade doesn't work out, this was a GREAT TRADE by Shero. If Ty Smith is as good as we think........... Vatanen becomes the number 3 Dman and it doesn't seem so bad any more.
  2. I guess a lot fans are mad this early in the off season process this year is because of last year's total inactivity, which is understandable. Let's just wait and see what they do. The Devils can certainly be aggressive and bring in players like Ehlers and Subban, but who the hell knows. Let's just not hope their big move is to re-acquire David Clarkson just to get to the cap floor. Devils fans will revolt if this happens.
  3. For this franchise to move forward, they need to buy out Andy Greene. Enough with this being loyal crap. It is bringing down this entire franchise and there is ZERO need to keep Greene around at this point of his career. I see this, you see this........... why doesn't Devils management see this? The Devils need to be the most aggressive franchise in the NHL this off season and it starts with getting Greene off this roster.
  4. You folks are putting way too much stock in Kyle Palmieri. If you have to include him to get a good D man, you do it, plain and simple. Palmieri doesn't offer this team anything if he isn't scoring goals. The Devils can.always sign a winger to replace Palmieri. Getting a D man is tougher.
  5. The Devils will have three number one overall picks on their roster in 2019. That's gotta account for some sort of vast improvement , doesn't it?
  6. I hope the Devils don't stay irrelevant like the Oilers will all these number one overall picks Remember, the Devils also won the 2011 NHL Lottery too, but for whatever reason, they weren't awarded the number one overall pick.
  7. As great as the 2000-03 teams were............ there was nothing like the first Cup. The 1995 Devils were a juggernaut and they proved it by dominating in the playoffs. The other championship teams didn't dominate the way the 1995 team did.
  8. They might as well just wear clown suits out there instead NHL jerseys.
  9. Maybe I will get lucky. As in........... maybe the Devils have found their franchise goal as my football team has found a franchise QB (Bills with Allen). But I will shut up now and not jinx it on both counts.
  10. Thank God I work nights. i can’t watch this garbage even if I wanted to. What a mess guys. Is there anything to look forward to with this team? The future seems as bleak as the present.
  11. This team has been dead man walking for a long time. How is Hynes surviving this? Not that a coaching is going to matter much with this band of Misfit Toys.
  12. As I said in the thread against the Jets................. This is the product you get when you do NOTHING to improve on fringe 8th place team from the season before. This is what happens when you rely on young players who aren't NHL players and don't go out and acquire needed vets, all the while having ample cap space. I am not upset because I expected this. Now there doesn't seem to be an end in sight as this team is as flat as a pancake on a nightly basis. I wish I can paint a rosier picture, but I can't.
  13. The Caps will going back to back tomorrow night after an 8pm start with Vegas tonight. Hopefully that will make up for the lack of the Devils playing games. The Devils should be fresh as daises, the Caps, not so much. Hopefully, the Devils can take full advantage.
  14. I don't think the Devils have dominated puck control like this in a LONG time.
  15. Doesn't matter if Matt Loughlin is still the play by play man. Awful radio is awful radio. I can't believe the Devils can't find anyone better to do play by play on the radio.
  16. How exacty is there no chance? If the Devils want to trade for a player and the other team accepts the offer, a trade is done. This goes for ALL teams. The Devils aren’t excluded from this process.
  17. I think Zach'a's development and MJ's health are the keys to the Devils being a very good team.
  18. I wonder as time has gone by with zero news coming from the Erik Karlsson front............. Do the Devils put themselves back in the Karlsson sweepstakes?
  19. Amazing how the Erik Karlsson saga has died completely.
  20. Hopefully Zacha can step up his game this year. Solid passer and PK, but can he bury a few more goals?
  21. But to make the jump to SC contender, a few players have to emerge and close the point gap to Hall. I think Hischier is a 40 goal player waiting to happen, but who knows.
  22. How dare you not include Claude Vilgrain's 1991-92 season.
  23. Crazy. I can understand a team like Chicago being in cap hell, but Winnipeg being on the brink of that is the sign of the times.
