I can not wait to read this thread in a year. How can you live your life without being this cynical.

There was some hope that things were lining up that the team could take a big step forward with cap space, lots of draft picks, the expansion draft and being able to trade Kovy's rights.  In the end, we got a draft bust defenseman and Brian Boyle.  It's nice we got Nico, but a franchise savior he ain't.

All we heard was allllllllll these mooooves that were gonna be able to be made with cap space, an arsenal of picks, the expansion draft- and nada. Zilch. Zip. Shero can try to make a trade, but I doubt that happens either.

Feel the same way.  For the past year certain posters here have been going on and on how this offseason is going to be a big summer of change.  Outside of Nico nothing much has changed at all and to say it's disappointing is an understatement.

Cap space everywhere for us but nothing to spend it on now.  Wonderful.

Yup, shero talked a fair amount about taking advantage of these assets this off season and there is nothing to show for it at this time. Yes October is a ways away but this team on paper looks just awful. Not to beat the horse again but I'm sure hall is happy with how things are going here so far. What looks like as of now another season of not sniffing the playoffs. In hindsight which I know you can't do as of now we should have just kept Larsson.

Oh I'm pretty sure Hall is pleased as punch that he's playing with a less talented version of the Oilers

The sheen has definitely worn off our GM. Besides Hall and Palmieri, has Shero done anything else that was pretty good?

The one thing I'll say in Shero's defense is that Lou and Conte left him with virtually nothing to work with.  Conte even managed to royally fvck up the last draft he was in charge of.  Had the sixth overall pick in a deep draft and the best player we got will probably be Blake friggin Speers.

The thing about the trade route is you have to have something to trade. Schneids? Hall? Palms? Who else is going to get a return worth having apart from the prospects that the team worked so hard at tanking to get? I'd love to know what Shero has up his sleeve now.

man this sucks. theres not even anything worth while left to sign... radulov? we have need at RW but I guarantee the board we aren't going to end up landing him..well because we don't land any of the sought after players. More trash to come I'm sure. if I could write shero and the organization some hate mail it would've been on the way already.

You basically have to trade Hall and Schneider at this point.  

Sadly, at this point it should be considered. This team is years away from being decent. As a sth that's so depressing to write and now fully realize.

Not for nothing either, but for a guy to leave that much money on the table tells me they didn't do a good enough job selling the organization. If you're Shero, you go full court press- you have Hall and other players reach out. You say to Shattencockbag 'we're building something special here, and you have a chance to get in on the ground floor. Do you wanna be part of something special, or do you wanna waste your time winning jack sh!t for that loser-ass franchise across the river?' Because this isn't the first time Shero has failed to close a deal (Vesey) when the competition has been those fvcking rancid a$$holes from BROADWAY BRAH. Maybe he did do this, Shattenjerkoff still said no, and I'm just looking for someone to blame- but it doesn't sit well with me when dudes are leaving $20 mil on the table.

I don't know who is more delusional; the people who thought Shattenkirk made us these magic immediate cup contenders or the people who think that the Devils without Shattenkirk won't make the playoffs for a decade.

We don't really know that for sure. sh!ttenkirk just has a boner for the rags, just like a million other players. Its the rag effect, people just want to play in NY even if it means they will probably fail at being successful.

He was a Rags fan growing up, the money at that point doesn't even matter. Would you take less money to play for the Devils if you had a chance or take more money to play for the Rangers? I know I'd take a bit less to play for my favorite team.

How do you know shero didn't do that?

regardless, he was never not going to NYR.. he wanted to go home, let him be.

people rip on players for selling out and taking huge contracts... and now we're ripping on players for taking pay cuts to go home and play for their childhood favorites?
