    Curious to see how Smith does with a new coaching staff...but yeah, just seems like he's constantly doing the wrong thing.

    Offensively, Smith seems to be playing with more confidence these past couple of weeks. Defensively, he's a mess. That has to get better or his NHL career will be short.

    Major props to anyone making the trek to the Rock for any of these remaining games.. you are a better fan than I.

    Don’t sell yourself short. I’m here because I already paid for the tickets. Were any of the goals stoppable? It was hard for me to tell.

    Depending on the starter I would trade him yes. 

    When you consider that Luke Hughes could be here for the 2023-24 season, I think it would be a good idea to trade Severson while his value is high and address a need, if it makes sense.

    I am not saying Studenic would have made a world of a difference by any means, but I do find it interesting that Studenic could barely get into a lineup that includes duds like Tatar, Zacha, Johnsson, Vesey, etc. but somehow finds himself on a line with Seguin and Benn in Dallas.  What are their analytics nerds telling them that ours didn't say?

    I liked Studenic, to me he passed the eye test as far as skating ability and defensive ability. He also was decent at getting chances but he was not blessed as a finisher. Still, I thought he was better than Vesey.

    We need an nhl starter. Not sure where it comes from though.

    Should a player like Severson be on the block to try to trade for a goaltender? 

    One of the persistent issues for the Devils (besides bad goaltending) is the failure to clear the zone when the simple play presents itself. Daneyko brings it up all the time. It happened again last night and it led to a Rangers PP goal. I tend to lay the blame on the head coach for this.

    That being said, the Devil penalty killing has made a big turnaround, so Nasreddine gets some credit for that, I would think.

    That was a heck of a first period, though, huh? Miles Wood causing problems, two fights, a Jack Hughes impossible goal. I don't want to get on Nico Hischier too much because he's been playing well, but he watched DeBrusk put in a rebound for that third goal. I was astounded that he did not skate at all. It was all downhill from there.

    Correction. That was the second goal where no Devil was in the middle of the ice, just when the goalie gives up as fat of a rebound that you'll ever see. Yikes.

    Sarge has to be the first one in. The amount of disrespect this guy gets is wrong. 

    I guess I am disrespecting him a little. Personally, I put MacLean, Claude Lemieux, McKay, Driver, Holik and Madden ahead of him because they were more important players who played in NJ for a long time. I put Brylin on the Colin White and Jay Pandolfo level.

    Like everyone else, very happy for the kid in net.  In Daws’ last 8 starts, he’s stopped less than 90% of the shots that he’s faced just twice…and has put up a .928 save%.  There’s no way in hell that we ever could’ve expected that from him.  And the schedule is forgiving enough for a while that the Devils can keep rolling with him, to see how long he can keep this up.  Good for him; he’s made for a fun lil’ story.

    I feel great for the kid, too. He helped win us a game that we shouldn't have won. The Ducks forced a lot of turnovers in our zone, and there were a few unforced errors, too. It's fun to see a player seize a chance, hopefully it's more than a flash in the pan.

    Yeah he's had some good moments there.  But there just weren't very many of them in general.  Just glad that his time is coming to an end here.  It feels like another door slamming shot on what's often been a brutal stretch here.  

    He's creeping up on minus-50 in 3 seasons as a Devil.

    When I think of "guys who forever miss the net", PK is the first person that comes to mind.  Sure, every now and then he manages one of those "wow" laser-beam goals that gets your attention.  The problem is he managed a handful of those in his times here...a whopping 15 of them in 167 GP.  He basically turned into Eric Gelinas.  The rest the time, he's trying to shoot through someone who's within 10 feet of him, breaking his stick into splinters, missing the net by a mile, or nearly killing one of his own teammates.

    I get the feeling other teams miss more often than you think though.   

    I like PK better on his stretch passes than his slapshot.

    Sharangovich has done enough for the Devils not to write him off...now it's about how good can he be?  What's his top end?  He's put up 30 G and 30 A in 106 GP so far.  I'd like to see him manage those same numbers in 75 - 82 GP...if he's getting time on the Top 6, he should be able to do that...he's working with some talented players here.

    Yeah, he has an opportunity to grab here, for sure, and he seems capable. He has a pretty good shot and he doesn't need a lot of time and space to get it off. He's got a good motor, too, lately.

    I thought he was really off tonight. Flubbed a couple shots that should have been prime chances. He’s a halfway decent penalty killer, but when the main thing you bring to the table is your shot, you can’t be whiffing multiple times in a game. 

    Off, but not invisible. Early in the season, I sometimes wondered if #17 was even out on the ice. Yes, he flubbed a couple last night. But it was not enough for me to call for his demotion to Utica, which is where he seemed to be headed in the fall.

    Hughes looked great last night.  I thought Sharangovich and Mercer had somewhat rough games last night.

    As much as I like Subban as the person, Subban the player is just simply finished.  Same with Tatar.

    I wouldn't mind Johnsson here but my expectation of him is nothing more than a 3rd liner.  If he is gone then I won't be shedding any tears either.

    It's doubtful Johnsson will be back. He's not that much better than what a call-up would be. Subban would have to try out to make a team next season. I think he'll opt for a TV studio job.

    I’ll add this as well: if you stopped jacks line, we had nothing tonight, yet Lindy didn’t make ANY changes. He was the opposite of DBA: instead of musical lines, we had etched in stone ones.

    Among the forwards, I thought two of our whipping boys, Zacha and Johnsson, played pretty well tonight, and the 4th line had a couple of monster shifts. I thought Yegor played well, too.
