More like: that's what happens when there's a lopsided lead by one team. Doesn't happen to the Devils much.

We have played with a little more snarl since Lou Stoates took over. That's something I'm happy to see.

Classic Jagr quotes right there

'When we fight, I score goals'.

Ok, so beating the Flyers is a little like winning an MMA fight against a 3 year old, but it was still fun to watch.

Great job by Jagr, ridiculous what he's able to accomplish at his age. New skates right out of the box indeed.

Sestito needs to stick to not scoring goals, he fights like crap.

Does that explain the two when the game was close? Does that explain the two against Pittsburgh? Does that explain Sestito going after Schenn or whoever it was for taking a run at Greene? Nope. It doesn't.

 

I don't think you need to explain what does and doesn't happen to the Devils much to most posters on this board. I'm not one of them.

I am not saying we aren't playing with a little more of an edge, but four fights has to do with the sloppy game it was for the Flyers and the fact that the Flyers are a dirty team that takes cheap shots and instigates. We are always more likely to have fights vs. the Flyers and Rags; they are hated rivals. Remember the puck drop free-for-all vs. the Rags a few years ago? That was under DeBoer.

 

The second part of your post is incomprehensible.

larrson is no longer a liability in the D zone. merrill is holdiding his own and has some nice individual skill moves. zid is a hell of an offensive weapon and greene is steady. that a decent top two pairing even with the injuries. schnieder and KK are a nice tandem

 

but the main difference these last few games is thatr the offensive lines, particularly the top two are healthy again. having cammy travis havlat and elias all good to go makes a big difference with this team.  that hasnt happened much this year.

 

plus, no doubt the coaching change added a spark and jump,  even zubrus looks better (i know big deal).  not sure if Im happy about it though its not a sustainably situation and Id rather be fighting for that 3rd last spot, as a jet fan I know how damaging winning meaningless games can be (see beckham jr vs pryor)

Disagree on Zubrus.  He's not getting as many minutes from the coaches and isn't really playing well consistently.

I know Gomez recently had a rough stretch, but what would it take for Lou to bring him back next year? I don't see many better available options at center unless we're pinning our hopes to a 18 year old kid, who is likely not going to be McDavid or Eichel

 

I could see a 1 yr deal.  In terms of money I couldn't see more than 2m.

If you are talking 3rd or 4th line, I'd bring Gonez back in a heartbeat for $2m, maybe $2.5m. He's proved he can still hang a bit. This is especially true if we are lacking in the forward position next year, which we still would be if we got a stud in the draft. One player does not a great team make...

I would NOT be optimistic if we go into next season thinking Gomez is a top line center.
