Almost no way Cory makes it through the season healthy - he's been hurt in each of the last 3 seasons and he was injured in game 1 of this season.  I'm not saying it's Blackwood's net forever, but Cory is near unplayable right now.

i agree that he's been dogsh!t but my greater point is that i don't have enough faith in blackwood to hold down the net enough to where cory gets a start and plays well enough that they go back to him and he strings a couple games of good enough play that they see what they have.

Jack now has a family to support. Way to go Cory.

Mike Brown offers up contradictory bullet-points, mfitz interrupts him to make a weiner joke, SD tells him that he isn't racist he just thinks PK should use a different water fountain, Neb00rs flies i

Buying out Cory at the end of this year would only cost the Devils a 2M cap hit over the next four years (two of those years of which would have had Cory's 6M cap hit had he still been on the team) So that's two years you have to deal with a 2M cap hit for - not unreasonable.

It all depends on the moves the Devils make this summer as to whether buying Cory out makes sense. Did they re-sign Taylor Hall? Are there players they want to sign and take advantage of the immediate cap savings over the next two years? Then again, if he continues to be this bad, maybe it's not even worth paying him 100% of the remaining value of his contract in any case.

disagree, the devils need to upgrade their starting goalie position asap.. waiting for cory to turn it around at this point is irresponsible.. heck, it might cost you resigning hall.. taylor knows dam well you arent winning a cup in the next two years with blackwood and Schneider

If Zacha-Hughes-Gusev is the line, that's a mistake. 

I get the thinking that Zacha-Hischier-Gusev could work as it worked for Bratt. That is what they should go with if Gusev must play. But, Bratt is better than Gusev.

Zacha-Hughes-Gusev could get ugly. Hopefully Hynes keeps the top line as it was last game.

i would very much expect that it is hughes with palmieri and hall only and nico gets extra shifts on the top line depending on game situations.

I had a listen to the Devils Official Podcast with Laughlin and Stein and they spoke with Bratt.  Matt asked him about getting scratched and sitting with Elias in the press box, specifically what parts of his game the staff wanted him to work on and Jesper said it was his offensiveness.  Holding on to the puck more, taking it to the net.  Thought that was interesting so I figured I would share.  I never listen to these particular podcasts from the team but I did enjoy this one.

If he wants to learn offensiveness he should hang out on NJDevs, we’ll learn him.

Mike Brown offers up contradictory bullet-points, mfitz interrupts him to make a weiner joke, SD tells him that he isn't racist he just thinks PK should use a different water fountain, Neb00rs flies in out of nowhere screaming that Gusev is terrible at defense, MB3 starts yelling at SD, RWTD asks MB3 why he's being an idiot and chirping SD, Nicomo starts giving actual constructive criticism but is quickly interrupted by a well-timed meme from mfitz which elicits a Ray Liotta laugh meme from Mad Dog. CR asks Nicomo to continue his actual constructive criticism but that's again quickly shut down when Daniel shows up and tells Jesper it all doesn't matter, the ownership doesn't care about winning anyway.

Jesper's response:

Too accurate - even down to that I am not even mentioned because no one knows who I am anyway.

I know you! There are just so many people who have VERY similar names; "NJDevils-random number sequence" that it's hard to keep track.

Well, I guess I should be happy that MB3 doesn’t have me doing anything d*ckish?

The above is pretty damned funny.  Admittedly this is the sh*t that I’ve been missing on the board as of late.  So much cumulative trauma from all these years of losing has the board more on edge and harsh with each other than I can ever remember, and it’s kinda bummin me out.

This is not any definitive statement on the state of the board...I don’t think it’s better or worse than at any other time, really.  I just want to fast forward to a win streak, where we’re all breathing a little easier and all having a little more fun.  I miss the fun.

Curious that my mentions included seiners and memes, but no anti-Zacha content. I guess that could’ve been implied.

Zacha can maybe make up for the defensive mistakes made by Hughes and Gusev? That must be the logic behind it. Although this line might have some issues defensively, it has the potential to be nasty offensively. I'm intrigued.

I guess Hughes has improved his defensive game a bit since the beginning of the season. I'd love to see this line work as the skill Hughes and Gusev have could be amazing to watch.

Man would Maroon look about 8x’s better on our PP and 3rd line than Wayne freaking Simmonds. Woulda saved $4m on the cap too.

Truly don’t think maroon would come here. He cares about winning, and we don’t.
