  1. I'm not sure why everyone is on the Kinkaid sympathy bandwagon. You're paying $6 mil + for a goalie who shouldn't be playing backup. Schneider was brought here to replace Marty. He was brought here as a bonafide #1 goalie. He needs to put up or shut up. Plain and simple. Give him a chance to play in the playoffs. If he effs up, then you go back to Kinkaid. You're down 2-0, you make a move that could be psychological, especially to the other team that is going to be shooting against him. Remember when Marty lost 2 games to Boston back in the day, and Terreri played the next 2? It was a must move. If it backfires, so be it. But it was necessary. Kinkaid, for stretches, reminded me of a glorified version of Scott Clemmensen, so let's not crown him the heir apparent to Marty just yet. He didn't steal any games from Tampa, and that is what a goalie needs to do in the playoffs.
  2. The way we are playing making the playoffs would represent a waste of time. I would rather see a hungry Panthers team play Tampa in Round 1. That may be mildly entertaining compared to our one trick pony show.
  3. I don't know why everyone is saying, "This is a good trade if the Devils sign Grabner in the offseason..." Grabner was "up for grabs" (no pun intended) when he was UFA a few years ago and the Devils balked for whatever reason. So, what bothers me is this guy could have been had for free in his UFA year rather than having had exchanged a 2nd and Rykov for him now.
  4. You are absolutely off your rocker. Karlsson is on the downside, and not worth two 1st rounders, let alone Santini and Bratt.
  5. Chances of prying Patrick Kane from Chicago?
  6. He also congratulated Gionta. Which has me thinking, do you think Gionta could help us down the stretch?
  7. Package Kinkaid, Zacha, Stafford, Lovejoy, Zajac, Greene for Dalton Prout.
  8. Greene is absent. Need some fire from your captain. The way Hall has been playing, captaincy may need to be considered for him. Team is playing like an inexperienced bunch. I equate it to the guy who gets a date with the hot girl (longshot date) and when he finally goes on that date, he sh!ts the bed. The Devils don't have the pedigree with this squad to know how to handle adversity. The novelty of their Cinderella start has worn down, and now they have to actually play big boy hockey and recover from bad calls against them and bad bounces - they just can't do it. Teams with guys like Marchand, Bergeron, Chara, Rask, Backes have enough class, experience, and talent to overcome crap like that. Who do we have - Travis Zajac? C'mon now.
  9. Severson bringing back flashes of Scott Stevens was probably the highlight of the night, especially since it was on that @ss face Marchand.
  10. Team just isn't of the caliber to make up for bounces against it. Earlier in the season, yes. But right now the only guy looking like he is lifting his game to appear like he gives a hoot is Taylor Hall. The others just are farting at will.
  11. I couldn't see the puck cross the line on the replay, but let's put it this way, based on where Lack's glove and blocker were, if he was muffling the puck under them, it had to be over the line. Whatevs. Besides, Lack playing like a wanker with the puck cost us that goal...
  12. Eddie Lack seriously? Overplaying the puck...unbelievable...
  13. At least Hischier scored a goal, too bad it was on his own goalie.
  14. Severson is an abomination. Imagine we were able to get Hall straight up for Severson. Just imagine. Greene is a 2nd/3rd pairing d-man at best. Our secondary scoring has dried up. Kink-aid needs a bandaid or medical aid...or mental aid because he plain out stinks. Scott Wedgewood anyone?
  15. I missed the goal actually. I'm at work. Just tuned in now.
  16. Seriously, Zacha needs to step it up. Guy leads the team in absenteeism.
  17. I think Tavares has a winner's pedigree, even though he hasn't won anything in Long Island. The guy is a consummate professional, and alongside Hischier, Hall - I think the Devils would tip the balance of power scale in the East...
  18. Does Shero jettison Zajac and make a pitch for John Tavares (age 27) to be the 1 - 2 combination at center along with Nico Hischier? Would he come here as a UFA at $9.5 X 7?
  19. Butcher is killing me. Guy lose a gear or something?
