  1. With the cap remaining static it's good news for teams that currently have space (like the Devils) but teams that are up against it will be in trouble. There will be a few more players not getting re-signed by their clubs and maybe a few more trades possible now. I also read somewhere (so could be complete BS) that there won't be any compliance buy outs this season. I guess that means that Cory will be staying around for a least another season.
  2. Just looking at the five different set of rankings they've got on Elite Prospects and Drysdale is ranked anywhere from 3rd to 12th. After Lafreniere, Byfield and Stutzle have gone in the top three there doesn't seem to be any consensus on the rankings. The Devils (and the other three teams picking above them) will still have Drysdale, Raymond, Perfetti, Sanderson, Quinn, Rossi and Holtz to pick from so should get a pretty decent player.
  3. I agree with what you say about the size of Rossi, Perfetti and Drysdale. It's interesting what you say about Holtz. The reports I've read about say his goal scoring should translate to the NHL. I'd be pleased if we come out of the draft with Sanderson and Quinn. What do you think of Askarov? Is he as highly rated in Russia as he is by the scouts in the NHL?
  4. After the first three places there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of consensus over the rankings. The Devils are going to get a very good player. Maybe Holtz or Perfetti (I'm pretty sure Drysdale will be gone by 7 but you never know).
  5. Surely if Fitz was going to get the job they would have announced it already? The more it drags on the less chance I think there is of him staying.
  6. Well Hynes was fired the beginning of December and Shero in January. We're now half way through June so it's hardly knee jerk and I was being a bit tounge in cheek as well. I think that they have a good opportunity to really get stuck into the preparation for next season and if, as you feel, Fitz has the job they should get on and announce it. Surely the uncertainty on who'll be the GM is counterproductive in finding a new coach?
  7. And they've appointed a new GM already. I wish the Devils would decide what they're doing about the GM and coach positions. So they could, you know, maybe work on a strategy for the draft, for free agency, put plans into place for next season so the they don't look as unprepared as they did this season.
  8. One of your designs? I didn't realise you did the last Much The Same CD (One of my favourite bands).
  9. She's from a CD cover by Lagwagon.
  10. That's what I thought when I read that.
  11. I read this the other day regarding Hoelscher. Sounds like his ceiling isn't something they're bothered about losing. https://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog.php?post_id=105778&blogger_id=159
  12. That pretty much sums it up for me.
  13. That's tragic. 25 is way too young to go. RIP.
  14. Um, that's awful. Really, really awful.
