Assistant Coach (7/11)



  1. I think they understand correctly what he should work on.
  2. Bader is the worst. Where he did have raymond?
  3. Bardakov did start as 13th forward, but going through the season he played more minutes. In the playoff he started to play regular role, in the final of conference he played in all 7 games against CSKA more than 16/17 minutes. He isn't potential top 6 forward but he looks and developing exactly like potential good bottom six forward. He did play defensive energy role in SKA, and if he will continue to play regular role there, its a perfect place for development.
  4. Meh. Tampa lost their fuel. Point and Kucherov are working on the honest word. 3 straight long playoff series is to much for them. Really hope they will find some groove. Want to watch great two way final.

    Omg. I didn't read topic well. Trading 2nd for Fiala or Debrinkat, sign Gaudreau. Now that! I believe we should give Kuemper 7 years deal and hire Brodeur as a head coach. And of course bring back Lou as GM. I believe we should deal Holtz, Gritsyuk, Okhotiyk and Daws for Quinn Hughes. With unprotected first next year. Let's make crazy bingo.
  6. Yeah. His trades were something like that before. Seravalli is sh1t poster after his departure from tv.
  7. Why? They did trade for 9.5 mil Jones and bury.. I mean they made better themselfs. Now evrybody talk about trading Debrinkat because they are too good and even a guy like him will not be able to hold. Not the best one apparently. btw I would prefer to sign him if I would BH gm. If they want to tank, they can deal 50% of Kane contract.
  8. Do you rank someone else's communication format? Seriously? I thought we were accepting communication styles, because your style can't be called gentlemanly either. I understand that something was happened from the time when you was in high school, but it`s a new time for the team. Team has literally new time line. It`s a prime years of our top players, like Nico, Jack etc. And, like I think, smart manager will try to surround them with players, with wich timeline they connect. And can complement their talent. When I call guys like Kadri or Marchment as good potential target I understand that they are older, but they will not sign deals for years where they will not worth it. Gaudreau and Forsberg will sign. In the years of cap hit only Ovechkin, Crosby and Malkin ends their long term deals. A lot of teams hit the cap ceiling and have trouble with it. It cost them much. Chicago lost freakin Panarin because of that. And we even didn`t play one play off game with Jack. And you are talking about sign a player, wich contract could damage our cap hit right in time of the prime of our players. Big part of our talents won't even be in their prime yet. Gaudreau is good, but he isn`t Ovechkin and he isn`t Crosby. Forsberg... Fiala is young but he isn`t a good compliment for our players. His case is about balance. Devils are the 3rd team in scoring from the rushes. He isn`t good two way forward, he isn`t good physical player. He isn`t good defensive player. He is good perimetr player. Very good dynamic player. But it`s all about the same and doesnt help where we should fix. And it cost us money to fix the problem. His sign is a case how to build a team for fun. If you want first round only, may be second - that`s ok. But it`s not enough for me. Again, if you want to trade Holtz for Fiala, I could understand that, but, again, it doesnt really help with our problems and we will have less money to fix it. I prefer to trade Holtz for strong defenseman. Not for Fiala. Pasta is a great option, he will cost much, but he is young enough and he is really special player. May be not on the level with best ones, but close to them. Would I trade Holtz for him - easily. (with sign only of course) Would I trade 2oa for him. Interesting question. I would say no, because if they ask 2oa or even 2oa+Holtz(I believe they will), and I will got 45 goals, I prefer to safe both and will got 30-60+ goals from both of them in the prime of this team, and I will got them on controlling deals for more years. I think you greatly underestimate the result Holtz showed for his age, I'm not sure that you've seen at least a couple of Slavkovsky's games and soberly rate which player we will soon get in the draft. Sorry for making long read. I know, it`s a mistake. I know it`s a torture for you to watch non NHL games. I give you fresh video of his highlights. He is only 18 yo guy. Try to relax and imagine how he will play with Nico or Jack. Guy is special.
  9. Wich contracts they give to their "secondary scoring" players and how many bucks did have those players they got through the trades? Johnny G is a secondary scoring winger? Or Forsberg? Did they trade their top prospects like Holtz? You are making your argument worser when you are trying to use Tampa as example.
  10. Holtz wasn't OK. He was great for his age. Up high of expectations. Anyway he should work on his skating, upside is there. I don't believe Boston will trade Swayman. May be some boston crazy fans are trying to deal him, like some others did with 2oa or Holtz himself, but Boston very high on their young goalie. Thats always what is never gonna happened, because when you have really good prospect, who did make right steps, you prefer to gamble on his maximum potential, or you can trade him, and everybody will laugh on you about it after, like it was in Erat case. And every team is higher about their own prospects, because they did draft them and develope them, and they know how much this prospect can mean for them. Swayman is a young stud goalie, who is playing on controlling contract. And Goalies are money, like we can see. And they are very hard to evaluate. And they have a boy, who is working well in their system. I like Knight and I believe Florida is very high on him. Every word I did say about Swayman is working with Knight for Florida. I belive he cost more than 2nd oa pick for them, but he cost less for us. Because he is unproven in this moment. And goalies are goalies. Today they are great and bring you a cup, tommorow they are eating your money in cap hit and nothing more. We have a lot of examples. And changing the organisation influence them badly sometimes. Anyway price is the thing that exist in the moment. Tommorow Knight could be a vezina goaltender, or Slafkovsky could turn into the Rantanen 2.0, we don't know. I'm a biggest fan of E. Kane. To never play on this team. I don't wanna see a douche in the locker room, full of kids. It could make biiig damage to the collective. And I agree devils need some good complimentary two way or/and physical players to help with cycling, pressure and interior play. Gaudreau can eat every cent Philly wants to spend on him. Guy needs to have right players around him, we don't have them in top-6. But. The thing I want doesn't mean the thing that never happened. I belive with new deal of Jack and Dougie Contract, with new deal of Bratt, Fitz is under pressure, and I wait some big sign/trade(not wanting) from him.
  11. As I remember there were some relationship problems between him and Ruff. And I believe he will get overpayment for his breakout year. But if it will be 4 year deal, I'm not against, he is very good defensive forward. Like Marchment, who I think isn't well skater, but he finds way to compete. And if he doesn't ask more than 3-4 years, I don't see why we can't give him some time in the middle six role. Even if he is only 30-35 points player. He should ask something like 3-4 mil, Nichuschkin could ask 5/6/6.5 mil. Its too much, but he is young enough to give him this type of a deal. 6-6.5 for four years or 5-5.5 for 5 years. I prefer 4 years.
  12. Yeah, everybody sleeps and see how they will coach the youngest team The Great New Jersey Devils without any working goalie. Fvck Vegas, Yzerman, who are you? I want to make top line with 3, 2 and 1 season experienced players great again! It definitely can’t hurt coaching career.
  13. Cofield, Fiala, Knight etc. This list can work in other way. would be fun to read forum again, when there was Boser discussion. May be we should trade 2nd for Boser still?
  14. Yap. I will use shorter constructions next time for you. Zegras or Raymond, Seider deserve to be trade for 2nd pick. Cofield not.
  15. Bad example for you. Tampa did make a building through the drafts and didn't sign one term deals with older players, didn't trade good assets before starting to contend. They did a great job with having good players in their prime years on big deals. But it is a great example for the Devils organisation to act. And no, we should not trade 2nd oa for cofield. I like him but he isn't proven. 2nd pick is the giant asset. You can trade Holtz+ for Cofield, but if you trade 2nd OA pick, you should get young, very talented, proven player who fits well. Cofield is very close but I saw enough of his bad games. I think he has huge potential, but price is the price. I saw games of Slafkovsky too. I would trade any players outside of Hughes/Hischier for him. But I don't need too. And Fitz don't need. Because he will draft him. And get player with star potential for free. And this star fits... nicely at least. I like your hockey manager enthusiasm, but we could talk about Marchment, Nichushkin, Kadri, etc more. They are more realistic. Interesting things going on in Boston btw. If they will deal Pasta, it would be a huge sign of rebuild. I would sign third line center from the market and deal Blackwood, Smith, Boqvist and Foote/Thompson/Zetterlund for Ullmark. Blackwood is cheaper and could be normal backup for Swayman, if they trust him and ready to start some rebuild. They got G, D, C and W. Thats a lot, but Ullmark is proven, young enough(28 yo) and has 3 year deal. Boston will got prospects he wants. But I believe they will ask Holtz at least and im not ready for trading him for uncontroled aged players. I would deal him for Pasta(with sign), Cofield(why not), Tkachuk(it will never gonna happened), Demko, Ottienger and may be Knight(why not). But all of this trades will not gonna happened, because they don't want to overpay we don't want to overpay. Rebuilding teams shouldn't overpay anytime that was allways bad trades, funny bad. On the other hands teams with limited good assets don't want to sell them.
