  1. This team is just so different than it was last year. The kind of late goal they gave up at the end of the first was always such a dagger last year. It felt like a game was over every time it happened. This year they just never give up at all. It's like giving up a goal is a minor inconvenience for this team.
  3. Never tell me that "Game management" isn't a thing. Garbage make-up call.
  4. Amazing game. Its been a long time coming but the Devils are actually fun to watch.
  5. Gotta love seeing Seigs fully shutdown McDavid at full speed
  6. I know that goalie interference has a lot of variance in calls given out but man there wasn't even contact between the two. Don't know how you even go for that challenge.
  7. Aesthetically I think they look pretty good but its pretty much a tragedy that they put blue on a devils jersey.
  8. Man when will the Devils get to play against a goalie that doesn't play their best game of their life?
  9. Damn that's a soft call. Respect to the refs for trying to get Ruff fired as well.
  10. To me this is a player betting on themselves. I don't think Bratt is greedy for trying to get what he is worth or that this is some sign that he is going to want to test free agency. If Bratt sees himself as a PPG player going forward and the team is saying "You've done it once so far, we are not paying you like you are a PPG player" (which is pretty much the right thing to do from a team management standpoint) then why not take a 1 year deal. Bratt doesn't have some insane injury history that would make you (or himself) think that he is going to fall apart this year, although that is the biggest risk for him.Players only get a like a decade to make their money. The next deal he signs may be the only big pay deal he gets for his entire career.
  11. You know what I don't think I have seen mentioned here: If JG was a flyers fan wouldn't that mean he fvcking hates the Devils. If you were a professional player and a diehard Devils fan and you decide to go UFA to try to play for the Devils but instead the Devils say no and the Rangers or the Flyers make you an offer do you take it to still be close to home?
  12. Oh nooooo... we'll have three good centers. What a disaster for the franchise.... (This is the exact same reason I say take Cooley over Slaf as well since what i have read have put him slightly ahead of Slaf)
  13. I'm not really sure I fully understand the hate behind the 1 for 1 for Fiala or DeBrincat. From a value perspective you are getting an ~80 point scoring winger for a prospect who might become an 80 point scoring winger in a few years. Is that not good value for the pick? I understand with Fiala that Minny is in a cap pickle so we should be able to give up less in order to make that work but from a strict value for value perspective is it actually that bad of a trade? Is it a player size thing where people are thinking we have too many small players and not enough big guys?
  14. I think of you keep 2OA you take Cooley and laugh all the way to the bank. People on here are acting like having 3 really good centers would somehow be a problem. I get that this team needs more scorers and better wingers but I just can't see how having ANOTHER potentially really good center is somehow wrong. Don't forget that centers have good trade value as well and that its usually easier to move from center to wing than vise-versa. Now if the reports are right about Arizona really really wanting Cooley and you can get something nice in return for swapping picks then I am 100% in favor for going to 3OA and taking Slafkovsky.
  15. What was Lehner even doing there. Didn't even react to Boq.
  16. Low grade MCL is pretty much the best news possible. No surgery, pretty much a 4 week recovery. 100% recovery from this kind of thing. MCL heals itself unlike ACL or PCL. really good news here.
