  1. Bastian won't sniff the top 9. Highly doubt he gets past the first couple rounds of demotions to Bing in camp.
  2. Add Noesen. Quenneville/McLeod is 11. FWIW Coleman was left on the updated Devils website roster. Maybe 1 more depth/veteran signing. If it is Zajac-Hischier-McLeod-Boyle down the middle I would certaintly not want to leave rooks out to dry. It is a balance. As the forwards are now: Hall -- Zajac -- Palmieri Henrique -- Hischier -- Zacha Quenneville -- McLeod - XXX/Noesen Wood -- Boyle -- XXX/Noesen Coleman/Blandisi/Pietila McLeod as #3C is worrisome only because there is a chance, especially with the current defense, that that 3rd line is going be pinned a lot. I don't know, I think Shero needs to a top 9 RW.
  3. So in short, this scraps Vatanen being moved anywhere?

    Nico or Nolan

    That is how I interpreted it. Friedman was strictly speculating.
  5. Last night was particularly brutal. A lot of Devils fan being obnoxious and it is evident they have no clue what is going on. Can't count how many times the same people repeated "shoot the puck" and "hit somebody" last night.
  6. Need more zone penetration tonight. Not enough creativity and speed last night to create quality chances.
  7. Cammalleri - Zajac - Tlusty Quenneville - Henrique - Palmieri Elias - Josefson - Ruutu Matteau - XXX - Kennedy Tootoo XXX = Kalinin, O'Brien, Gionta, etc. Greene - Larsson Severson - Merrill Gelinas - Schlemko Moore Schneider Kinkaid Some thoughts: - I think Quenneville is more versatile/effective than Boucher - Matteau has been eh - Kennedy would be a solid 4th line addition - Tootoo should be the 13th forward - The Elias/Josefson/Ruutu line isn't amazing
  8. Last year: Komisarek, Kaberle, Fedotenko on PTOs This year: Kennedy, Stempniak, signed Tlusty late Its refreshing not seeing early-mid 2000s players at camp.
  9. He signed a 5 year deal post Parise/Kovalchuk and we were already missing the playoffs. I don't think Cammalleri is upset at all here. With that said I'd explore the trade route in 3 years for sure.
  10. Worst case scenario is Larsson is a good middle pairing guy with a competent partner. At $4M thats OK, not great but this won't handicap the payroll in the future.
  11. I don't feel miserable at all as a Devils fan. We just started a new era, we have stable owners, new upper level management, and a young foundation. Sure there are transitional pains and growing pains but misery would be being a Coyotes fan at the present moment, not at all a Devils fan. And Lou did not "bail" on the organization. This guy is a hack and it shows because he is working for SI.
  12. I know, I wanted to miss the playoffs for another couple of years. I don't know if I understand this from Toronoto POV. Great GM who will certainly make the Leafs a tight ship but long term I guess they are grooming Dubas.
  13. Yeah man, this scrimmage makes me think half of the guys owned by NJ will make it cause they played well in development camp. Get real. 29 other fanbases are raving about their development scrimmages as well.
  14. This is a nice deal because if Santini/Moore/etc. take a step this year/next year Gelinas can be a valuable piece in a trade. RFA at end of contract and very friendly cap hit for the next 2 years. Obviously this is just thinking ahead. I hope he continues to be a offensive juggernaut.

    David Conte Out

    Ugh yeah. Thats kind of the whole mindset now. Building for the future and sustained success.

    David Conte Out

    I can't believe this discussion is real. Even if Conte did not deserve to be fired he is 66. The Devils are planning now for the next 10-15 years, is Conte going to be here when he is in his 70s and 80s?

    David Conte Out

    Maybe...because they have either done absolutely squat and/or have been doing poor jobs. Enough with the sentimental BS. This is a pro hockey club not a family reunion meet up.
  18. Zajac has been looking for that jam kind of guy with a knack for goal scoring ever since Parise left. Even though Palmieri isn't on ZP's level he should elevate Zajac/Cammalleri.
  19. Cammalleri-Zajac-Palmieri Henrique-Zacha-Semin Elias-Josefson-Ruutu Matteau-Zubrus-Kalinin I could go for that. With Zubrus/Ruutu here I don't see room for Gionta. If Boucher makes the team out of camp bump Ruutu down.
  20. Nasreddine is 39. If he came on with Hynes that has got to be one of the youngest staffs out there. Management as a whole in NJ got real young real quick from top to bottom.
  21. Fine with the idea. Despite his weak PO performance he did put up 50 points. Rather have him in the top 6 than put a guy not ready into a tough spot. Barring no significant trade Henrique-Gomez-Boucher Cammalleri-Zajac-St. Louis Elias-Josefson-Matteau Zubrus-Kalinin-Ruutu Tootoo
  22. This made me laugh. Very true
  23. Rangers will never win the Cup as long as its referred to as "Henrik's chase" for the cup and not the "Rangers chase" for the cup.
