2018 Offseason Thread

Recommended Posts

The fans are mad in MTL. Anybody think Shero can take advantage of this and take them for whatever they have left in decent players/prospect in a trade? :lol:

They probably need defense more than anything at this point which is something we can't give them really,but it would be funny  to see Shero pull a heist.

Nosen and Coleman both filing for arbitration. 

Now we are not signing free agents  and we are lowballing the ones that we have. Great.

Would absolutely hate to lose Coleman. 

Agreed. Actually either one. But I think it’ll be worked out.

The guy who definitely had to file was William Karlsson. Talk about a tremendous negotiating position!!

Filing for arbitration is standard for most players in their position. It doesn't have to mean they are getting lowballed.

I doubt either make it to arbitration.

I think them filing allows for additional time for negotiating.

Yeah, I know. I was just annoyed.

Most likely they’ll come to terms. Both of those guys are worth more than what they will ultimately receive since they are “character guys”.

I have PTSD when it comes to arbitration thanks to Lou. Whenever I see that Devils players have filed for arbitration I still get that initial reaction of, "They're fvcked."

I think Chris Ryan pointed out that out of the 30 or so players who filed for arbitration last year only one player went on to finish the process. The rest were signed in advance. 

Last Devil to go this route was Palms. Signed well before the deadline. I think we will be ok. 

Would be loathed to lose either of them.

I would not trade Severson, McLeod and a 1st round pick for Brayden Point.

I've been a little weary on Pagnotta in the past but he's been pretty good thus far this summer, think Pagnotta was actually the first to have the Tavares signing.

Thought this was interesting (esp since there's no news/it's so quiet) so I figured I'd put these few snippets here from an interview with Sergachev: 

Daria Tuboltseva: They say that the real hockey starts in the Conference finals and it’s just “hit and run” before that. Did you feel this way?

Mikhail Sergachev: It was really hard against the Devils - they really hit and run a lot. We beat them because we were more skilled. We beat the Bruins because we were faster and played tougher. It didn’t work out with Capitals. It started not very well for us, it was hard to save a series when you’re losing 0-2, but we managed to reach the seventh game. We could have won the sixth game, but it doesn’t make sense to talk about it now…

Daria Tuboltseva: That was a real fight against Devils. You had a scratched face after your fight with Brian Boyle. You give an impression as a calm person, but what happened?

Mikhail Sergachev: That was emotions. We were losing the game, which we didn’t want to lose. We got a penalty, but a referee didn’t notice that. I got on the ice and wanted to score during the last minute, but it didn’t work out. So Boyle just grabbed me. That wasn’t really a fight, we just shouted at each other and that’s all. But the next game was quiet. Emotional games happen, even in the regular season.

Daria Tuboltseva: Both teams got a penalty at the last minutes of this game. How was it started?

Mikhail Sergachev: Devils players played the whole game tough and and the referees didn’t do anything about it. Guys were very angry.

Pretty sweet to have your jersey retired by TWO franchises.  And neither one of them is cheap (yeah, he only played in 5 seasons as a Duck, but he won the Conn Smythe when the Ducks won their Cup, and was the Norris runner-up in each of his first two seasons there). 

Good for Scotty.  Happy for him.

Four Cups, two jersey retirements, a Norris, a Conn Smythe, the HHoF...1263 GP and 202 playoff games...damn, what a career that guy had.

"referees didn't do anything about it" 

Yeah you mean the part where your veteran leader ball tapped an 18 year old and didn't get called?  How about the part where Kucherov hit a guy in the head and didn't get a penalty for it?

Stupid kid.

I don't believe for a second that the workers at that bar were as innocent as they claim to be.
