  1. All purpose general trade speculation thread

    Well, I respect not wanting to be involved with sons of former hated players - but that's not how I personally think. If there's value to be had out there, I don't care about the sins of the father from 17 years ago. As for Bobby Ryan, I agree that it doesn't make much sense for the Devils (especially given Ryan's ongoing hand injury), unless it's part of salary dump from OTT to NJ but also happens to include a huge package for either Karlson or Hoffman.

    Yes, I've been an avid fan since about 1993. And I suppose you have a point. The Domi-Niedermayer incident was pretty fabled. I forgot about that one... still, don't think the misdeeds of an inconsequential career goon equate to the same thing as say the Matteau playoff goal or all of Messier's antics. In short, you have a point, but I would personally not let the bias of a kid's goon father stop going after the player. Lou might have felt that way, but Shero isn't Lou and will seek out value wherever he can find it. All that said, I'm not sure I really believe Domi is on the market. Might just be a Yotes ploy to initiate some talks about other players.

    Haha, I'm not sure Domi - son of a Ranger goon enforcer from a bygone era - falls into the same class as Matteau or a would-be Messier/Avery. Domi is a skilled player. He has no connection whatsoever to the epic battles of the 90s/00s. He's just a handsome Albanian kid looking to make an honest living. I'd have him in a heartbeat.

    Per TSN, if Max Domi is available, this should be our target. I can't imagine the Yotes would be dumb enough to give up on him, but, stranger things have happened (like when F. Forsberg got traded for Erat). New wishlist is Domi, Galchenyuk, in that order. I know neither player addresses a "core" need of ours (top 4 D, top 6 center), but if young players are available on the cheap, I think you have to open your ears regardless.

    I'd rather pick up Cody Franson for free over trading for a UFA defender.
  6. All purpose general trade speculation thread

    The more I consider it, the more I think it makes sense to acquire Galchenyuk. Throw some beans at Montreal and get him in the fold, sit tight on D, then offer the kitchen sink to John Carlson this summer. Call it a day. Unless there's some very cheap defender available right now that wouldn't cost anything. Really tired of Lovejoy.

    If OEL is available, you have to be at that table. He's insanely talented. But I highly doubt Chayka trades OEL. It's unlikely NJ will be in on any of these players, but interesting to contemplate.
  8. All purpose general trade speculation thread

    Are there any names on the Trade Bait Board which would actually make sense for the Devils to trade for, given that we're not looking to give up picks and are not billed as a Cup Contender? I would think maybe only guys on contracts that are not UFA in case we feel they fit into long term plans... Those guys (on non-UFA contracts are): Hoffman, signed 2 more years - i think he would cost a ton to acquire Pacioretty, signed 1 more year - for being signed only 1 more year, not worth it Galchenyuk, signed 2 more years - interesting case Z. Smith, signed 3 more years - i like Smith personally but probably not needed A. Shaw, signed 4 more years - a more talented Zack Smith... maybe Pageau, signed 2 more years - only if Zajac somehow finds himself elsewhere Phaneuf, signed 3 more years - no, too cap costly Barrie, signed 2 more years - would love it, but probably will cost a fortune
  9. Around the League: 2016-17 edition

    Their RW depth is poor. He could easily find himself with Monahan and Gaudreau. Jagr, to his credit, likes to select teams where he can play a prominent role. I would not be shocked at all to see him replicate last year's numbers. Happy he is back for sure!!!
  10. GDT: 9/18/17 Washington Capitals @ NJ Devils

    I prefer the old jerseys, but I'm not too butt-hurt about the fact that the new ones are a bit different. I admit that we don't look like the classic Devils of old, but who knows, maybe that will prove a good thing in the long run. More excited about the on ice product itself.

    Sal is a good guy. Like this move. Should do well.
  13. Fire & Ice Website

    from the board where people are yapping about Deb's tan in another thread, pretty rich to be "called out" on not loving "video-blog" journalism. but to each his own, pal. you wanna poo poo as your m.o. instead of a more human "yeah, it is kinda lame/strange", i guess that's what you'll continue to do. after all, you've got 20,000 posts, so, your word is gold. lol, THIS!
  14. Fire & Ice Website

    oh brother, get off your high horse. NJDevs is a fun forum, but it's a real boys club. if a person doesn't have 20,000 posts, you guys make people feel like they can't create topics or post anything more on the lighter side. i just thought this was funny that Gross posts videos, definitely a sign of the modern times.
