    Schneider: done or finished?

    Jesus, going back and reading through that was tough. I think the franchise and the team were in a very bad place at that time and so were the fans. It took basically nothing to set people off back then. What is interesting reading that thread is that a few players mentioned as trade pieces for the Devil's to acquire are now on the team , people both mentioned Hall and Palmieri.

    Do you know what's great? Since all the mega hype started on Pettersson he has been held scoreless in four straight games . Did that ever happen to Gretzky?

    Strangely one of my favourite Devils all time. Got a few signed photos which I had on my wall for years. I always thought he was massively underated (as a lot of Devils tend to be). I was gutted the day he left but it also felt like a good move for all concerned. Great to see so many people talking so highly of him.

    At this point this team is just rediculous. All I really know before every game is that Taylor Hall is very good and he needs to have all the money. That's it.

    Haha, I was debating where to put this and didn't actually check the ATL thread. My bad.

    Devils 2018-2019 news and notes thread

    This came from a TSN article about teams four core players to build around under 24. Basically they said they rated the Devils core to highly. I like the way they have written Nico off as the top player from the draft after seeing 10 fvcking games from Elias Pettersson who is a whole year older than Nico, and then saying he is probably not even second best, without offering any explanation even though he has 35 more point than Nolan Patrick.

    I have very little hope for this game.
  8. Pretty straight forward, Should Ray be making enquiries? If so, what do we need to be offering? Of course I have seen the Rangers be mentioned as an interested party, but is this the sort of move they want to be making at the beginning of a full rebuild. The leafs are going to be looking for a very decent return, what would you be willing to offer?

    It's really not taken any digging. Even now you are massively underselling Lou's achievements. And again you are just circling back to the one point you can't really look past in Lou's tenure which is his handling of Parise. But that is history, so let's move on and focus on the sh!t show that is developing this season. And just to point out, I think Ray is doing an incredible job and I have total faith in him to make the correct moves to keep the team moving.

    That's not an example of " what have you done for me lately" that's you just not liking Lou's methods. Which I agree you were very consistent on. Whether you agreed with his methods or not i think you showed a level of ingratitude to the man who made this franchise what it is and brought 3 championships, that's all. I mean I can't tell you how to feel, if you don't like Lou and his methods fine. But saying you can't believe that people are questioning Ray and his methods after the guy has only been in post for three years and doesn't have 3 championships under his belt with this team still seems ironic to me.

    I am not trying to do anything. And I don't believe you were reactionary, if anything you were the model of consistency. I should have stopped the bold at the "what have you done for me lately part". You may respect Lou but you really didn't show in on here and the level of constant criticism was highly unnecessary. Everyone could tell that Lou was done here , but most were sad that it had to end is such a fashion and showed the gratitude for all the banners hanging in the rafters. Whether you intended to or not you came across as vitriolic and celebratory when Lou moved on.

    I still think this is massively ironic coming from you the way you spoke about Lou towards the end of his tenure.

    At least we have a GM who I have faith in to make the right moves and put this situation right and there are a lot of games left to go. Ray is going to have to start working on a plan to convince Hall that this is just a bump in the road.

    Clearly it's just my perception then, but this has to stem from somewhere for it to be picked up by more than one person.

    That basically sums up my feelings. I think it would be tough for Shero to get rid of Hynes. And I am not even sure if he is the problem. The back end of this team is still a mess really. Cory must be getting really , really fed up now.
