He told Detroit he wants to stay "closer to home."  Detroit isn't exactly all that far from Boston (2 hour flight to be precise).  So, I would think that if that's the case, he isn't going to play for Chicago or Toronto.  Maybe he does elect to play for the Bruins or one of the Metro-area teams.

well you kind of look at the whole picture too going through the process i imagine... "there i'd be closer but less chance of winning..." "there i'd be a bit farther but i know i'd be on a playoffs team with a chance at the cup"

I think he signed with NJ. I just have a feeling the direction NJ is going, a roster spot, family ties and 3:30 drive to Boston makes it appealing. 

i wish too but based on that, why not the Islanders tho? their core and prospect pool is just as good as ours... and they are better at the moment too. well they lost okposo and we got Hall. now i guess it's up in the air but you know

i mean... since he's a Bruins fan... there's no way he's been thrilled with their management over the last few years... there's no way. So that's something that could go in our favour.

Also eventhough it's probably all bullsh!t... it seems like were allllways mentioned in the top3 and we've been there since the start... other teams got in later but we've always been there and still rumoured to be in (again, all speculation but still feels good to see the name out there)

Saw an SNY article that 'celebs' were tweeting him to pick the rangers. Made me barf last night. I'm OK if he doesn't pick us, never really expected it, but hope he doesn't pick nyr. Then if he does, I'll have to wish his career is a flop...

Is Susan Sarandon still considered a "celebrity?"  Jimmy Vesey probably doesn't know who she is and she's one of a few that tweeted him.

to be fair this kid at this point is nothing else than a good potential prospect, he may be good or just be meh. I checked all top scorers in his league and they are all 23 years old... so imagine you're drafted in the NHL playing against 18 years old while you "should" be playing at the very least in the AHL... well you should put up numbers. 

We do need all the help we can get though so im still hoping he's signing with us

Yeah I really don't know about him and to be honest I kind of dislike all the attention this spectacle is getting, but I guess it would be nice to "win" the bidding to get him. If he signs with the rags I won't be pissed, it's his funeral.

Well it's only cause it's literally the ONLY thing happening in the hockey world at the moment. There's just so much you can talk about line combinations and talk about upcoming training camp lol

Yep, to put things into perspective, he's only 1 year younger than Taylor Hall, Devante Smith-Pelly, and 2 years younger than Kyle Palmieri and John Moore. Think about all the seasoning and progress these 4 still-young players have had since being drafted. Think about all the Stanley Cup Playoff minutes DSP, Palmieri, and Moore have put up. Palmieri and Moore have played 33 playoff games, DSP has played 24. That's a veteran level of experience these guys have but their signings/trades never got 1/8 the press Jimmy Vesey's is and will be getting.

And yeah, it's like you said, the Vesey signing is literally the ONLY thing to talk about now as we wait for the World Cup of Hockey haha.. My competitive nature is coming back, and that's why I want the Devils to win the signing war and get Jimmy Vesey; but otherwise, I'm anticipating him not being too big of a deal, maybe 3rd liner? Maybe...

Vesey is one of the best goal scorers to ever play for Harvard, they're not exactly a powerhouse like BC or Michigan, what Vesey has been able to do at Harvard basically single handed is pretty impressive. I think the kid has a very good chance of being a 2nd liner in the NHL, especially with the right linemates.

Not sure how reliable this guy is; but he works for TV stations in boston and has 3k+ followers, seems to have been updating the Vesey sweeps pretty frequently. He jsut posted this:

 

Text from source close w/ Vesey camp. "He reallllllly likes the Devils."

Maybe not a powerhouse, but they DID win the National Championship my freshman year there.  Go Crimson.

i still don't get it. But yeah for wtv reasons, looks like he really likes the Devils. We were one of his team before the Pens, Rangers, Islanders came in. It used to be us, buffalo, Toronto, Boston... all the other teams were added later (well of course from what we've heard)

So just debating this more than it needs (nothing else to do anyway) it's like the Islanders and Rangers were added since well... it's close to home and if im gonna look into the Devils, might has well hear what those teams have to say too.

Too add he and Nick Lappin for free would be simple amazing. Nick Lappin on a much much weaker team had 4.55 shots per game. Vesey had 4.27 shots per game. Both those are elite NCAA numbers which should carry over. Plus they play together on a line in the Foxboro league.

 

PS: Lappin put up 3.26 shots per game in the AHL against mainly the toughest competition late in the year.

Whats not to get? New Jersey is a great place to live and a great place for a NHL player.

Beautiful beaches

Amazing shore towns

Mountains

Camping, hiking, hunting, sightseeing everywhere

4 distinct seasons

15 professional sport teams within driving distance if you want to catch a game

NYC and Philly as close neighbors

Atlantic City for gambling

Every kind of world class food you can ask for due to the diversity

Practice arena is at the same location as the arena itself

Least amount of travel in the league

Somewhat close to his family

Out of the spotlight

Can be given top 9 time

Get it now? Maybe just maybe players and other fans will finally learn just how great this state is and just how beautiful it actually is.

No i don't. The city is one thing. And how many of those things he couldn't get anywhere else?

But he's coming here to play hockey... so who is he gonna play with... Zajac? Henrique? who are decent players... but put them against  Crosby, Malkin, Toews, Kane, Tavares, Austin Matthews etc etc... then you wonder why he'd pick NJ. We have Zacha, but he's still unproven. 

Then there's a few teams where he could end up on the first line. there's no way he ever outplay Hall in NJ.

Then our future... we are one of the team on the way up. Along with Buffalo, Toronto and the Islanders. Islanders are already a playoffs team. Our futureis certainly brighter than the last few years... but to become a contender, we're still a few pieces away and it's really up in the air. Not something you can sell someone "we don't know how we'll get the players to be contenders... but we will!"

It really depends on what he wants, i hope to god he picks us. And if he does huge kudos to Shero.
