  1. The thing I expect Hamilton to help with the most is sustained pressure into the offensive zone after guys like Jack or Bratt carry the puck in. WAY too often last year one of those two would make a clean entry only to have no support trailing. This was often when Jack would just try the miracle passes that seldom found another Devil. Now we’re going to have one of the best in the league back there.
  2. I definitely think it’s more the latter. Hell, just the amount of hate I saw online over the Hamilton signing was ridiculous. You listen to half these people Dougie is one of the most overrated players in the league and we’re going to end up regretting the deal two years in. I have a feeling if that exact same contract was given out by a more popular franchise there would be a very different reception. Anyway, fvck em indeed. Let them hate.
  3. Well sure, buts that not really what I’m talking about. Many non-Devils fans think the Cups were 100% the defense and the trap. Like any decent goalie could have been in there. It’s super annoying.
  4. It’s unbelievable that the winningest goalie of all time could actually be underrated by large factions of supposedly knowledgeable hockey fans. But he is in my experience. So many people think it was all the defense in front of him. Like he never won two Vezina’s after Stevens and Niedermayer were gone.
  5. What’s Cam Jansen up to these days?
  6. Haha I actually saw one review compare it to elements of Holy Grail. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/07/29/movies/the-green-knight-review.html
  7. Well what did you think of Green Knight?
  8. He’ll show them when that stache reaches its final form.
  9. You can clearly see there’s a plan for what Shero/Fitz want on defense.
  10. What are your top 3 MCU movies? For me it’s probably Thor Ragnarok (I’m a huge Taika Waititi fan), Winter Soldier, and the first Guardians of the Galaxy. The only ones I haven’t seen yet are Black Widow and Ant Man & the Wasp.
  11. I haven’t watched this yet but I heard he gave Marty a lot of credit for selling him on NJ. And I know Bernier said the same thing. I absolutely love having Marty in the FO. He obviously brings a lot of respect (and always will), which can only help having a very green GM.
  12. What are you seeing? We’re seeing The Green Knight this weekend.
  13. Deadwood is my #3 show of all time after The Sopranos and The Wire. The dialogue is definitely second to none.
  14. Always is a bit much. The last two seasons obviously, but before that he played in 76 or more games 5 years in a row.
  15. I’d imagine Boqvist will get a shot before either of those guys. It took McLeod until he was the age Boqvist is now to really look like an NHL player so who knows. I’m not giving up on him yet.
  16. Eh, not the strongest example of a core player really considering he’s 36 years old.
  17. Tbf MB3 asked for an example of a team losing one of their absolute best players. What’s Saad, maybe the 5th best on that Avs team (MacKinnon, Makar, Rantanen, Landeskog)?
  18. Tarasenko’s certainly aren’t. If we can only have one of them I’d probably rather go with him. Not only for his upside, but the much safer 2 year deal compared to wtv Saad is going to get.
  19. Yeah, Zajac hasn’t been a 20 goal scorer in over a decade. Saad otoh has been 5x since 2015. And it would have been 6 if not for the shortened season last year. A guy that can score goals and play on the top line is a much bigger priority to me than 3C. Not that it would really be an either or situation.
  20. No thanks. Especially after his comments about “not fitting in there” or wtv he said once he got to NY.
  21. Man, but if he stays healthy though I could see him scoring 40 playing on Jack’s wing. STL has already waited longer than they should have so I really don’t think he’ll cost anything crazy.
  22. I’m getting really greedy now. I want Tarasenko and Saad lol. That would almost be a guaranteed playoff team.
  23. Well, Nas has an actual NHL caliber defense now (with a pretty strong top 4 honestly) so no more excuses.
  24. He’s going to be able spring our speedsters like Wood and McLeod some nice breakaway passes, too.
  25. Sounds like he’s ok. We can confirm Bob is in stable condition after experiencing a heart related incident. He and his family would like to express gratitude for the incredible doctors and nurses looking after him, as well as his cast, crew and producers who have stayed by his side. The Odenkirks would also like to thank everyone for the outpouring of well wishes and ask for their privacy at this time as Bob works on his recovery.
