Wescott just remarked that "Boqvist's teammates want him to make the roster this year...they keep setting him up."

The reason he keeps getting chances is because he's a blur on the ice - he's beating everyone, he even burned Hughes on a straight line to the puck.

hardly looks like he's trying, too. Looks like he's making the team.

Walsh is having another impressive showing too. He could be a good one for us.

Y'all better not act like I didn't damn tell you so; Boqvist is a top-6 forward for the Devils next year and will find his way to the first line for multiple games next season.

Yep. That’s why I get annoyed when people casually include him in trade proposals. Boqvist is a keeper.

“why don’t we use Boquest to get a PMD?!?”

"Well he didn't put up 180 points in the Swedish league as a 19 year old. Seems like a bust."

“Probably not even our best Jesper”.

I really hope we don't see this during the season.  Hughes made a bunch of crazy passes, but his teammates flubbed the scoring chance.

Some fans around me were expecting Hughes to score on every time he touched the puck.  Since he didn't he must be a bust.😝

Popugaev tried to go 1 on 5 too many times to my liking, but did score a sick goal.

As mentioned in the above posts Boqvist was great.  I was impressed with him on Wednesday and again today, 😎

I was standing by the glass and everything they have said about Hughes skating is true.  He turns and changes position VERY fast!

Who did he play with and how many of them, if any, were NHL caliber players?

haha I had a good time. Nice and cool inside, quick 90 minutes, some giveaways, jovial atmosphere. Boom.

Oh I wasn’t serious. Was poking fun at someone who said something similar about the 3 on 3’s.

He played with Anderson and I can't remember who else.  So the answer is a little bit.

Would’ve been better if you were doing something embarrassing.

One thing we're not lacking is PMD between Butcher, Sammy, PK, Smitty.

Everyone’s known about his potential for the past year dude. No credible poster has suggested trading him for garbage

Really liked what I saw from Gignac a few times, hard on the forecheck and crafty with the puck in the attacking zone. Pop was fun to watch. He looks like a traditional stay at home defenseman with his body type and the way he moves, funny seeing him playing forward for some reason. 

Didn't catch much of the white team. I was down in the corner right against the glass on the side red was shooting.

Cangy sniped me as well, I'm in the Hughes jersey above you ;) Was awesome getting to get my hockey fix in the middle of July, thanks again to @Satans Hockey for the hookup on the tickets, you're a beauty :cheers:

This year's scrimmage felt like the most talent we've ever had at one camp, really fun group to watch, including some guys that really stood out that wasn't really expecting. My Top 5 outside of Hughes:

Jesper Boqvist – Everyone's kinda already talked about this kid already, but holy sh!t was he good. There's a reason why I've been all over this kid since we've drafted, he's so quick and skilled and he's noticeably worked on becoming a more interior player instead of being stuck on the perimeter. He was flying all day and had a nice shootout goal as well, I'll eat my hat if he's not in the lineup on opening night. Boqvist is gonna be a player in this league, fellas.

Mikhail Maltsev – I thought Maltsev was arguably the best player on the ice on Saturday, every shift he had he had he made a positive impact for the Red team and clearly such a smart player. Skates well, has some size, was a really responsible two-way guy as well that could win some faceoffs. Had a really nice set up Popugaev's goal, I wouldn't sleep on this kid pushing for that 4th line spot alongside guys like Anderson and Bastian, the organization seems really high on him.

Nikita Popugaev – Beyond the goal, I thought this was the best I'd seen Popugaev in awhile. He was playing a lot smarter than I've seen him the past, willing to slow the play down a bit and set up breakouts with his defensemen but when he had the puck on his stick he was like a freight train going down the side board. I thought his hands looked smoother on a few occasions than when I saw him in Binghamton, and there was one great moment when he just gave Pakkila the cold shoulder Jagr style when he had the puck. He was awesome, he's one of those guys that could blow up if he develops the right way, hopefully he takes a big step in Bing this year, he's fighting for his career at this point.

Michael Vukojevic – I thought Vukojevic was the best defenseman on Saturday, thought he was really solid defensively but then on the offensive side of the puck I really liked what I saw. Feel like I underrated how good of a skater he is when I saw him play in Kitchener last year, but he seems like he can really skate which is awesome for a guy with his size. Had a few good moments where he used his skating to jump into the play both on the rush and during extended looks in the offensive zone, and his shootout goal was a thing of beauty. Seems like he has a ton of personality, too.

Ty Smith – Smitty was great as well and was his usual self. Really smart on the puck and I honestly can't recall any mistakes he made, but I remember quite a few brilliant breakout passes that he made. He's such a good passer and skater and he's going to do wonders for our transition game next season, he obviously doesn't have elite level hands like a Quinn Hughes or Cale Makar but I think he's right up there with those two in terms of hockey sense.

Some other honorable mentions were McLeod, Bastian, Reilly Walsh, Xavier Bernard, and Gilles Senn. McLeod I thought looked quick out there and had a few shifts where he was excellent on the cycle game, same with Bastian on the cycle and he was physically dominant when protecting the puck. Walsh made a few good jump ups into the offensive zone and I liked how active he was, picked up an assist as well. Bernard seems a lot quicker and smoother than the last time I saw him, and he seems like he's developing more two-way game instead of being just another stay-at-home guy. Gilles Senn I thought was the best goalie, it's hard to get a read on goaltenders in things like this but I thought he looked rock solid and his body language looked good in terms of poise and positioning, wouldn't be surprised if he's the starter in Binghamton this year.

Look at that, ships passing in the night and you didn’t even know it. 

I wonder how many times I’ve been in the vicinity of an NJDevs member and not known it...
