Cory's deal didn't expire, and he wasn't a star player, he was never a #1 goalie even. Palmieri was not a star player, his career high was 14 goals. Plus he was a RFA, not really what I was thinking about because for the most part, RFA's re-sign. 

Do you really want to throw Kovy in there? I guess technically we did sign him, not that it mattered because he left the team nonetheless. So that's one example seven years ago, and the guy still didn't stay. Kind of a weak example. 

Anyone else? 

Ahhhh, didn't really put the focus on ''star'' players. But Kovy would have to be the only one in recent years, yes.

After criticizing him yesterday Shero just went out and bitch slapped my mouth shut.   god damn I love you ray.

This is an unbelievably solid trade. Almost 60 points last year, younger than Henrique, and we traded two picks that weren't even our own.  It's a shame so many of you already decided to not watc

Wait, what? The way everyone was talking I thought we only had yesterday to acquire players!

 Hall - Zajac - Palmieri

Zacha - Hischier - Johansson

McLeod - Henrique - Speers

Isn't McLeod the most natural center man of the three draft picks? Can't see why he'd play wing. 

If I'm hynes I'd want to see what Hall and MoJo have together: I'd love to see (maybe not immediately, I'll give you that)

Hall-Nico-Mojo 

Henrique-Zajac-Palmieri

Zacha-McLeod-??? 

Id love to see how Q looks next year. I also think Wood can play third line minutes. I'll be the first to admit I don't know a whole hell of a lot about Blake speers

Well yesterday I was saying that I like what Shero has done with the Devils on this forum. Love that he try to land Shattenkirk and Shatty just decide he was in love with tje rangers... People were complaining and saying that Shero suck etc...

 

Tofayr Shero just stole a really good young forward. Johansson is awesome... We now have a young, fast and dynamic attack. We have a good goalie. The only thing we need is to improve our Defense. We need guys that can move the puck and I wouldnt be surprise if shero put another steal for us...

Shero trade 2 second rounders 2X 3 rounders, Adam Larsson for Kyle Palmieri, Marcus freaking Johansson and Taylor Hall!

He draft hischier and Mcleod... so we shall see for those 2.

Trust the GM... I love Shero from day 1 and he loves to surprise us... this trade came out of nowwhere just like the Hall trade.

who knows what next with him.

Depends on the path they take to develop him. Hockey is "simpler" with less responsibilities breaking in as a wing compared to center. I had a coach who always used to say centers play chess while wingers play checkers. They can throw him to the wolves at center but I'm not sure that is the best idea with going in as a predominately young team.

We, as a forum, are officially bipolar.

I was fine with yesterday (nothing you can do when your target says there is more beyond salary and term), and obviously pleased with tonight.

Im interested to see how the defense shapes up and which forward we ship out.

Seemingly everyone plays or is listed as center at the lower levels because it's harder and they are the best players.    Remember when we drafted Parise... he was a center.    Look at round 1 this year.

I know we are invested as a fan base as Nico being our center...   but there was a lot predraft on him moving to wing (or better suited) in the NHL

Not calling you a liar, and admittedly I don't follow the draft stuff as close as some, but I haven't seen or heard that once. Do you remember the source?

A few places, but notably in Grossman's article pre-draft that Nico might be better suited on the LW

Can't believe he hardly cost more than Mueller

You know how we'll see a trade and start saying "why couldn't we have offered that?!?"?

I think there's a bunch of other teams' message boards saying that right now

When the other 29 GMs know you have to trade a solid player, it's tough to get good value for that guy.

So who's the GM that wasn't aware they needed to trade a solid player?:P

Again, it's incredible how quickly people forget, but Ilya Kovalchuk was one of the single most highly touted UFA's in hockey history when we convinced him to re-sign here. His deal had expired.

Can't help those jerseys would be much improved without the striping on the bottom. Wish there was some way we could pay homage to the Newark Bulldogs, too. Meh. 

Every time I see the  traditional uniforms in game pictures now, I'm blown away by how perfect they are. I always loved them, but I appreciate the fvck outta them now. Maybe this will have been a blessing in disguise once they bring they old ones back.
