  1. Always got to look for the positives.
  2. I very much hope Jack is ready for the first game of the season as I will be paying the best part of £2000 to see the game.
  3. Doubled his points total from last season. 6ft 1 , 195lbs so he has got the frame. Maybe a similar sort of project to Halonen? Maybe he makes the bottom 6 one day, worth a shot.
  4. We have managed to gather together some of the NHL's most gifted attacking players and all of a sudden there is a drive for defense and toughness? Every coach will argue they bring accountability and will implement it in their own way. What this team needs is a proper system and to be coached properly.
  5. All that fighting did us the world of good.
  6. The thing that makes this worse is that the teams around them have been wildly inconsistent as well. The opportunity to grab the season by the scruff of the neck and put a run together was there, and the team just haven't looked interested.
  7. This team does not deserve to make the playoffs.
  8. Hmm not really, you are familiar with our goaltending before the deadline right? 🤣
  9. No looser points in site for the Islanders today!! Keeping ourselves alive , just barely. This makes losing to the Sens even more bloody annoying though.
  10. Almost 15%!!!! Let's get it to 16% baby! Wooooo.
  11. Let's get that playoff chance percentage up to 12% baby!!
  12. If only. I could do with 6 months off work.
  13. I am off to Prague to see the Devils.
  14. By the time I got there the tickets left were £250 face plus booking fee. So about £600 all in for 2. There are cheaper avaliable so will chance it on Thursday. Had two in the basket and nearly pulled the trigger but I hadn't even priced up flights and accommodation. I went to see Boston vs Arizona out there way back when , before I had kids or any form of responsibility. Having said that the tickets were way more reasonable back then.
  15. Randomly saw this one on Facebook. Guy is 20 and hasn't put up incredible numbers at any level. Good luck to him, its a brave choice to turn down a pro contract offer.
  16. Failure in getting tickets that I could afford to the global series games. Will have to try the general sale on Thursday.
  17. Haha very true. Hoping by the draft that guy is nowhere near any of this teams decision making.
  18. Eh the way I look at it is that it makes it all the more valuable of an asset. Who know,s if we keep sliding we could have an outside shot at Celebrini himself. Hughes, Hischier and Celebrini down the middle. Who says no? LOL
  19. I know this season has been bad, but come on. His first full pro season, hasn't missed a minute, 0.5ppg as D man in the NHL on a team that basically shat the bed. Have his performances declined? Yes, but it's not been a disaster. Better coaching and maybe some better support next season.
  20. I wasn't expecting to be interested in this draft until at least late May, so the fact I am having a good look in March just goes to show how awry this season has gone. The Devils currently hold the 9th overall pick, which is a very decent pick. Now I am not sure how much effort I am going to put into looking at the first round players, because I don't think the Devils keep this pick . It has to be our main asset in trying to address the goaltender situation. But in the unlikely event we do keep it , it's worth seeing what's around. Looking at the mock rankings the top 20 or so prospects are incredibly defense heavy. Which is clearly an area where we have depth. So to my mind that makes it even more likely we deal the pick. Outside Macklin Celibrini at 1st overall there doesn't seem to be much consensus on the rest of the top 10. Anyway looking at mock drafts the most common selections for the Devils have been Cole Eiserman , Sam Dickinson, Konsta Helenius and Zeeve Buium. The first three are forwards and Buium is a LD. Eiserman seems like the most logical fit on paper. He is a scoring LW playing for the USNTDP. He offensive skills are regularly compared to Cole Caufield. So given the previous fit between Jack and Caufiled, could this be a similar match. What seems to be regularly flaged as a weakness for Eiserman is his skating, which for me is a red flag in the modern NHL. In a way his profile sort of reads like Alex Holtz, great shot, not so great skating. Haven't had a chance to look at the others yet. But will update this as I go.
  21. I wouldn't bet on it....... Actually put money on Vegas, at least you will profit from the failure.
