    If the owners were smart, they'd release them asap. We know what giant babies the fanbase is when it comes to jerseys. The sooner they come out, the more time for the bitching to get out of the way.

    The Devils have had a ton of picks during Castron's reign, whereas they didn't when Conte was in charge because Lou was trying to patch this team together with duct tape.
  5. Alright folks, we are officially in the dog days of summer, so I thought this was an interesting topic. Who had the best single season as a Devil? Justify your answer! Below, I'll write a quick blurb of the options: Taylor Hall's 17-18 Season: 39g, 54a, 93pts- In a season where NJ had no business making the playoffs, Taylor Hall willed the Devils to the postseason. Scoring 41 more points than second place Nico Hischier, Hall captured the first Hart Trophy in Devils history. Zach Parise's 08-09 Season: 45g, 49a, 94pts- Parise finished just three goals shy of Gionta's single season record and two points shy of Elias' points record. He was the driver of one of the best lines in hockey that year and played a complete, two-way game. Martin Brodeur's 06-07 Season: 48 wins, 2.28gaa, .922sv%- I was debating between this season and 96-97 (his stats were sick that year). But I have to give the nod to the season where he set the NHL single season wins record, won the Vezina and was a Hart finalist. Brian Gionta's 05-06 Season: 48g, 41a, 89pts- Gionta set the franchise record in goals in the year after the lockout. It was the year of the PP, but that shouldn't diminish Gionta's record setting season. His breakout was a major reason NJ had that late surge and made the playoffs. Scott Niedermayer's 03-04 Season: 14g, 40a, 54pts- Losing Scott Stevens to injury midway thru the year, Niedermayer played an absurd 26 minutes per game. He won the franchise's first and only Norris Trophy before leaving for Anaheim. Patrik Elias' 00-01 Season: 40g, 56a, 96pts- Setting the franchise record in points, Elias finished third in league scoring , sixth in Hart voting, and eighth in Selke voting. He was the catalyst of the Devils' best line. Scott Stevens' 93-94 Season: 18g, 60a, 78pts- I was too young to watch Stevens this year and process anything, but from a statistical standpoint, any time a defenseman approaches ppg, it's a special season, regardless of era.

    Yeah, I think that's a fairish deal. Bratt has 6(?) more years of cost control, and Palmieri is a good bet for 50 points, 25-30 goals.

    Would you give Palmieri and Bratt for Panarin. You're giving up a top-6 RW and a probable top 6 player. I think I would, but that is probably the return CBJ is looking for.

    Devils re-sign Coleman and Noesen

    More than 2 years to a bottom 6 player is generally bad news but Coleman will ne 27-29 and the aav is low. Happy to have him back

    When Savard was in Atlanta for three years, he had 196 pts in 184 games. He followed that up with a 97 point season in Boston and another ppg season after that. Kopitar is better because of his defense but Savard was crazy good for a five year span

    Yeah. Could also be an issue with translation if it was in Russian

    I kind of understand what he's saying. Atlanta always had **** goaltending and defense. Marty was largely hit or miss during his tenure here, and the D was solid, if unspectacular. But Kovalchuk has played with superstars up front. Savard, Heatley, Hossa, Elias, Parise are veryyyy good players.

    World Cup 2018

    Congrats, @moustic! France started off playing pretty poorly, but really got stronger as the tournament went on. Their road to the final was pretty much as tough as it gets (Argentina, Brazil, Belgium). Really impressive effort from them.

    As of now, they have about 15 million in cap space. William Karlsson is due a massive raise right now- likely will get 6.5+. Shea Theodore needs a new deal- could get 2+ if they bridge him or 4+ if they give him a Severson deal. Nosek will likely make at least 1.5 million. Next year, Nate Schmidt needs a new deal- he will likely get at least 5 or 6 million. Tuch is due next year as well. They're in fine shape right now, but things will get dicey soon if they aren't careful, and they arent being careful.

    It is absolutely a horrible contract. Fleury's deal kicks in when he is 35 and it runs through his 37 year old season. For a goalie who has been largely inconsistent, and relies on athleticism, paying a goalie 7 million aav in his mid-late 30s does not seem like a good gamble.

    NJ Devils 2018-19 Development Camp Starts July 10th

    Yeah, I could see him definitely challenging in a year. I actually would not be surprised if he gets a very long look in camp this year, getting into some preseason games, but electing to send him back. Of course, Hynes will keep him if he earns him, but I hope they err on the side of caution with Smith. Baring trades, locks will be: Severson, Vatanen, Butcher, Greene. This is a big year for Mueller and Santini. Mueller is in the last year of his two-year deal and should get an extended look. Santini, I'm not very high on but he should get his fair share of games.
