  1. Low risk (1 year) for a depth guy who has shown the ability to put the puck in the net. I like the move. It's not like this team is up against the salary cap. Other than Palmieri who else can be depended on?

    Hughes or Kakko

    My two cents are to draft Hughes. I have seen the term "generational talent" and other similar adjectives from scouts. Swing for the fences and rebuild another dynasty. Kakko seems like a great player but I just haven't seen the same level of upside. Hughes does have the size issue and 20 years ago that would have been a problem. Lucky for him, that matters much less now.
  3. LGD No stupid penalties, please (unless you play for TB). Getting to the rock from Philly can be done cheaply and easily if you can get to Trenton and take NJ Transit. $16 each way plus $10 parking.
  4. LGD This team can win this series without miracles. They have peaked at the right time.
  5. Coach of the year is a nice accolade but I think most of us would rather focus on the product on the ice. The playoffs this year was a nice accomplishment no matter how they turn out. The foundation is there now and I'll look to next year to see if Hynes can continue to get the production out of players we didn't think would produce at the NHL level this soon. Did the Devils make the playoffs because some players really stepped up and played out of their minds or was this the first step of many forward? To me next year will shine a light on the direction this team is going.
  6. Because the sum of the whole was greater than the sum of the parts.
  7. oh puleese, The Yankees have a well earned reputation for signing high priced free agents. Denying it is asinine. Listing current homegrown talent doesn't refute their reputation at all.
  8. I, too, didn't think Larsson was a tradable asset but he has underachieved for years. You can blame system, youth, coach whatever. He wasn't a bust, I just think we were looking for Neidermeyer v2 (at least I was). Seems like a reasonably fair trade to me.
  9. CR76, back on page 2 you noted: "Probably had to do with whatever photos the artist was working from. He probably wouldn't even know the difference." I know the artist personally. He knows the difference in the pads. Marty chose the photo that he worked from which was from his last game as a Devil. He wore the big pads then and thus that is what he sculpted. As for arcade machines, for those interested in building one, check out this book (link). I used this and built my own. Built one with two joysticks, 7 buttons each, track ball. Plays lots of games.
  10. Nothing earthshattering but a nice return for a rebuilding team. The assets given up were non-essential and Shero got some picks that can be used to get real talent. Giving up on Matteau stinks not because I think it was a bad trade today but rather b/c of the cost to the franchise when they got him.
  11. Who knows all the reasons why. Still under contract? Blues want something for their money? Makes sense to me. While he is forever a Devil as a player, who knows where he'll be post playing career. I just want the franchise to get back to a contender status and if that means Messier in the front office so be it. I just want a better product then what we are getting now on the ice.
  12. Terrible event. Responding to satire with such violence is just simply beyond my comprehension.
  13. I'd stay away from Kessel, especially for the price suggested above. Talent is there, I'm just no so sure the head is.
  14. Too much of a circus, imo. It would be a band-aid at best and a team killer at worst. The team got quite lucky in the way it turned out. Walk away Lou, walk away.
