  1. The problem with the pens is that they are top heavy and the top guys aren't producing right now.

     

    Personally if I was a pens fan I would want them to trade one of Crosby or malkin, you could get a huge return. They have like 5 great forwards and the rest are dog sh!t, which is the opposite of our team, we have a great team but are missing the 1-2 top forwards.

     

    Also when you have that kind of talent on your roster and you aren't scoring it can be bad psychologically, I expect that they will turn it on and make the playoffs, but the pens are gonna get bounced in the first round, they just don't have a great team.

  2. I'm not thrilled with the penguins front office coming here they really do have a sh!t team out of a small handful of guys.

    That being said, Lou has been awful the last few years at some point you can't ride the coat tails of your past achievements anymore. He should (and was) held accountable for the present suck that is the njd.

  3. So... Stupid.... A ..... Comment!

    Go root for the Rangers!

    Why is that stupid, the nhl like all pro sports gives coaches short leashes. This team is looking at a multi year rebuild (at least 3 years before we are truly relevant maybe more depending on how we draft) who wants to come coach us and get fired in 2-3years for not making us a winner.
  4. to be fair, there were some posters on here who floated the idea of trading Schneider and rolling with Kinkaid this year after Keith had a decent start. Every fan base has it's idiots... Just the rangers have a higher proportion.

    Difference being we need to go into full rebuild mode.

  5. The title of the thread was what would you trade for McDavid and the topic of the young D came up.

    I wonder what percent of Stanley Cup winningrosters consist of homegrown talent?

    Just because the title of the thread is about a trade doesn't mean I was refrencing it at all. You know this and every post is a discussion. You brought up our d being mediocre, which I think is an inaccurate read given their extreme youth which you overlooked in your assessment.

  6. Trading hopes for a generational talent is Millbury bad GMing.  i guess on a team this bad fans need something to cling on to. I am not enamored by this D in the slightest. The x factor is with Adam. If he can improve his skating exponentially, then his upside may be exciting.  He still looks like he struggles with players coming down the wall with speed and the game is only getting faster. I am not sure how I fell about Merrill, hopefully,if he is here next season he takes a step forward offensively. Gelinas, may be someone you can hide if he has a stronger partner, even then not sure he can play at this level on a nightly basis. LL may be willing to give these guys some more time in order to develop/boost value. I don't see this team being much better next season, so unless LL feels his job in jeopardy I don't see a fire sale of our supposed plethora of young d-men. And just stop, if you think EDM would trade McDavid for them even if Schneids was included.

     

    I didn't say anything about a trade with Edmonton. You just said our Defense is mediocre, our defense is going to be very good, I think you are underestimating how young they are is all.

     

    And you are right this team is going to suck again next year, and the year after that and probably the following year. We need an entire top 6. And until we hit rock bottom we probably wont really rebuild our forward corps the way it needs to be done.  

  7. What "spare" pieces would even get you close to that trade?

    The Devils D is rediculously overated. It isn't that far off from the forwards in terms of mediocrity.

     

    It depends on how you look at it. They currently aren't very good, but the core is extremely young and they are already playing at a "mediocre" level. in 2-4 years we will have one of the best D cores in the league.

  8. So im curious and it's a serious question

    Why is it a fireable offense suddenly to some of you to not trade a 43 year old and missing the playoffs when we are 6-8 pts away from a playoffs spot

    But it was completely fine and understandable not trading a 27 years old Clarkson in his prime who just scored 30 and who was on pace for another 30 through a full season, basically at the peak of his top value in his career when we were pretty much 6-8 points away at that time too... and a guy who wanted way too much money... and then miss the playoffs....

    Good question. I think the reality was we were a better team then. We are dog sh!t right now, back then we were still dominating play but not finishing, this year we don't do either.

  9. The difference is Adam Henrique is solid defensively (usually, don't know the story this year stopped watching). He's been a typical devils forward for us. He doesn't carry the play though, hes going to need good line mates to make stuff happen. I'm not worried about him.

  10. Everyone except Henrique, Cory, Severson, Merril and Larsson should be for-sale.

     

    I don't care if Gomez brings back a 5th round pick - it's an asset for a player that has no future here with the Devils.

     

    And a three year deal for Bernier, :lol: give me a break.

     

     

    I hope his opinion isn't shared by most logical Devils fans.

    Logical devils fans? He's had a good stretch, he's been in the league for how long? I would hope any logical person wouldn't just jump to the conclusion that he's suddenly the real deal.

    Could he keep it up, yea. Has he been valuable to us at times in a 4th line role? Yea. Is he some untradeable piece that is key to our future, no.

    Take your snark somewhere else bro.

  11. I've wanted pete gone for a while now, but this move makes no sense at this point in time unless Lou thinks we can somehow make the playoffs.

    This season is lost unless we are brining in a guy that will win even less, what is the point of this move? To win some games and take us out of the sweepstakes?

  12. I don't know why you even let certain fans bother you and there is no reason to act like the majority of fans act this way because my section doesn't.

    That being said why should we ever accept losing? It's going to be no playoffs in 4 of the last 5 seasons. When should that ever be acceptable? Sure there was a finals run in there but thats a few years ago already. I never want to be a fan that just sits in my seat and accepts losing because we have won in the past.

    The owners, gm, coaches and players should always be held accountable for losing. Us fans and especially season ticket holders spend a lot of money on this team. Sure we aren't going to make the playoffs every season but when there is no light at the end of the tunnel things need to be changed.

    This x10000

  13. I'm more shocked people are still going to games with the way we are playing. I wouldn't go to games and boo my own team ever, but I am insanely dissatisfied with the team as of late. It's one thing to suck, it's another thing to suck without building towards the future.

  14. Clearly you're not  a real fan.  #getbacktothekoolaid

     

    gotta live on the glory days of yesteryear.

    Yea I'm not a real fan, I'm just posting on a devils forum for the fvck of it. What I'm not is a masochist. This team sucks, once you accept that things get easier.

  15. Always interested when people say stuff such as that. What do you want him to do? Have the owners pressure him into making a bad trade that sets back the franchise even more?

     

    All he has done is delayed this franchise rebuild for years now. Every person on this board totes his mantra of we don't rebuild we reload. This team needs a fvcking rebuild, there needs to be pressure for that to happen because it clearly isn't happening on its own. Did you read what I said, I don't want patchwork I want a true rebuild, I don't want a panic trade that sets us back. The trades I want to see are moving our pieces for picks. These owners would be fine with that, they do own the 76ers. I want real change, not more of this meandering in mediocrity, eventually you aren't even mediocre. And that's where we are right now.
