Yeah I didn’t mean literally today, just that Hall should have the info he needs now to make a decision. The roster for 2019-20 is pretty much set now.

Oh I agree. if he doesn't want to come back at this point, that's on him. Ray has gone above and beyond to prove that he is willing to do what it takes to build a winner

Makes me kind of wonder if Palmieri might be traded to address the lack of talent on the left side of our defense. Gusev is capable of playing the first line, and if the Devils get to camp and it's clear that Boqvist oughta get top-6 minutes, Palmieri is an attractive player that can net 30 goals, with a relatively cheap cap hit. 

Just thinking out loud.

i really wouldn't trade him as he's one of our "known asset" and he's from jersey. Also one of our only forward who we know for sure can snipe the puck. Now with a better center and that he wont have to be the one in front of the net i expect he'll do even better now

there's tons of potential but a lot of our guys still have to prove themselves. And with both of our goalies being part of that... its making me a bit nervous

We really can't trade Palmieri. We need his goals. Gusev is primarily a passer and a really good one at that...not that he can't shoot, but that it's not his game. He's a very high skill player who tends to dish the puck. As much as I like Gusev, we also can't get ahead of ourselves with him. He projects to be a Top-6 forward - as to whether he can be a stand out top line player, well...that is yet to be seen and probably above his expected ceiling as of right now. He has work to do to improve his defensive play and I'll wait to see if his skating can keep up - Hughes, Hall, Bratt, Boqvist, and Hischier are all better/faster skaters from the looks of it.

Completely agree with this regarding Palmieri. We need shooters. Hischier, Hall, Gusev,  and Hughes lean more towards setting up plays than finishing them from what ive seen.

The defense overall is adequate and you don’t need a stacked group like Nashville to win.  On the other hand, you can’t have too many players who are capable of scoring goals.

i think it COULD be set, but it may not be. i suspect there's one more rabbit to be pulled out of the hat.

Possibly.... Ray is always working the phones. But I think I the majority of his work is done, outside of dotting I’s and crossing T’s.

Or you could compare to Panarin who also came from the KHL 😉

So, again, just in case you might not have faith in our ownership group:

This is what real teams do, and I fvcking love to see it.

Ray went to ownership and said "would you be willing to cut a $4.3M check tomorrow for a guy I'd like to bring in" and nobody objected.

They're the real deal, folks.  They're able and, most importantly, willing to invest in the team.

Honestly, I truly think this team can make a solid push to be a playoff team this year. They’ll be hungrier than ever

There's obviously a bunch of player who came over and failed completely. Some did pretty well too. i think Radulov could be a good comparison since he's also more of a playmaker.

When Radulov was 26 he got 63 pts in 50 games in the KHL and 7 pts in 9 games in the NHL.

the next season when he was 27 he got 68 points in 48 pts in the KHL. 

At 26 Gusev just had his best season with 82 points in 62 games. So hopefully it will translate to the NHL.
