  1. I'm happy to see the Devils sign Anderson, though I would've had no problem if he went back to college for one more year. You could say his recent season was a bit underwhelming but he did play injured early on and even missed 6 straight games in November. After returning from that he had 24 points in 28 games. I really like this kid's game though, two-way winger, loves to go into the dirty areas and battle, has solid offensive instincts to help set up his teammates. I think he'll be a solid player for the Devils.
  2. Thought something weird was going on when my brother (Rangers fan) texted me "whose rykov?". Feels weird seeing a Devils - Rangers trade. I'll give Shero credit, Grabner addresses a need and should be a good fit for this team. Hopefully he can get the job done. I wouldn't be surprised if Shero has another move up his sleeve before the deadline. Initially I was a bit taken aback when I saw Rykov going the other way as he's been one of my favorite prospects. I've been able to see a few SKA games a year for the past couple of years and really liked his game, even in the reduced role he
  3. Big fan of this trade and I love it even more considering Shero only used 2 surplus picks. I really like how he's not afraid to go out each summer and get aggressive on the trade market.
  4. I definitely agree that the whole Bennett in NJ experiment ended up not being great asset management. I would've liked to retain him but I can't get too upset. Seems like another player that will put up solid possession numbers but never find the back of the net. I trust Shero's longterm plan anyway.
  5. I don't mind the Boyle signing. Decent 4th line C and can bring a vet presence. Will be weird seeing him in a Devils uniform though lol
  6. His time here was short but I do appreciate everything Cammalleri did. He always seemed to have a great attitude and be a team guy even when playing in some less than ideal circumstances over the past few years. It's too bad he's on the decline now, definitely an easy guy to root for imo. Hopefully he catches on somewhere that's a good fit for him at this stage of his career. On DSP, nothing against the guy but he really was invisible most of the time.
  7. I'm definitely happy they got that deal done. As others have said, solid backup and it's always nice to keep a guy that came up through the organization.
  8. I'll do my best to keep an updated invite list. It's kind of funny that it seems invites to prospect camp used to leak out on twitter more under Lou then Shero though (or at least it seems that way). So far I've only found one invite: Nicolas Guay (Source - EliteProspects Profile) from Drummondville (QMJHL). Hockey Prospect list him as a C/RW at 5'11, 174 and had him ranked 157th overall for this past draft. He just turned 18 on 6/18. His rookie season in the Q in 2015-16 was spent in a 4th line role with Chicoutimi where he had 3 goals and 6 assists in 37 games. He left Chicoutimi and sp
  9. I'll have more to post on each of the Devils selections later this weekend, but my quick reaction is I like this pick. Multiple scouting services had him ranked around where the Devils selected him. Skilled forward, high end skater, with a finesse game. That's fine in my book for a high second round pick.
  10. Nico! Yes! I'm so relieved/excited/happy!
  11. I'm kinda meh on this trade. I like that Shero used the extra picks they had to target a young defenseman, though some could argue it's still not the best asset management since Mueller is getting close to bust status. The 4th to 5th is pretty much a wash in value. I suppose Shero isn't high on a lot of the potential 2nd round talent and would rather gamble on a more developed prospect that is closer to contributing. Mueller is going to have a great opportunity to finally cement his status as a NHL defender this season and I hope he takes advantage of it. Entering his age 22 year, he really ne

  13. Interesting news. Kelleher and Bayreuther were two of the prospects I was hoping the Devils would have interest in this spring. I'm a fan of signing Kelleher. Everyone's going to talk about his size, understandably, but being able to add a playmaking prospect that has produced at the NCAA level (1.09 Pts/GP) since being a natural freshman is awesome. I've been hoping the Devils would be able to sign him eventually since he attended the 2015 prospect camp. Doesn't turn 23 until next January so it's not like he's one of the older UDFA's, especially for a guy that played 4 years. Still a lon
