Dare I say he’s.... jacked? 🤪

Going forward we clearly have to stay away from goalies named Cory/Corey

Yep. I loved Madden. Easily my favorite Devils player who’s jersey isn’t hanging in the rafters at the Rock. 

There’s a good argument for that. 

I once helped him pick out a tie while shopping in Bloomingdale’s in the Short Hills Mall. I then bought the same one lol.

The 8 year deal is the only reason he came close to 202 goals. Aside from a couple seasons with Parise, did he even have 20 in a season?

No, I don't think so but he has in my opinion been the most consistent player the Devils have had over his tenure with the Devils. He has been a solid two way center that played 5 on 5 and PK. I just think he deserves a little love from a fan. So I pointed out his accomplishments. Do you agree regarding him or not?

I like Travis a lot. He has been consistent scoring goals in the teens per season for years. 

The only point I was making was that it was more his longevity than his offensive prowess that led to 202 goals. I don’t think anyone can legitimately dispute that.

He’s the reason my name is what it is.

Speaking of Madden, I always think about this assist he had on probably the nicest shorty Gionta has scored.  (Warning: This video was probably filmed using a toaster)

And side note, when I was looking for that replay, I found this and goddamn, it really brought up some feels.

Man, healthy prime Kovalchuk in full stride was truly a thing of beauty.

Just an absolute freak of nature physically.

This would be a really interesting off season topic

My god as if the breakaway acceleration and speed wasn’t enough, what a shot by Kovy.

Merkley on waivers. 

For the love of God, can we please claim Martin Frk? We could sell the Frk out of his jerseys in NJ...

Am I missing something with Merkley? The dude brings it every night.  

Aside from losing his jock on that one play last night, yeah, I would have kept him in over Maltsev. And I would have kept them both over Johnsson.

Merkley looked pretty good earlier in the season when they played him. I don't think he's looked as good the last couple times they moved him from the taxi squad, but I'm not sure what they're expecting out of the kid. He barely had a handful of NHL games before this season and I agree on having him and Maltsev over Johnson right now.

Merkley was on the ice for I believe 3 of the 5 goals against last night.  He has "heart" I guess and does some good things along the boards, but even with the eye test he looks iffy a lot of times and from what I understand his underlying numbers aren't great.

Plus with Nico coming back this move had to be made.  No one is going to pick up Merkley.

He’ll clear I’m sure. Like you said, someone had to go, and he’s the low man.

Can we claim both? Cause Panik is pretty solid too...

So rumor has it that Holtz is going to come on over now that his SHL season is over. 

And there is one more Reverse Retro game. Whoever bought that Holtz #88, the pieces could fall into place for you...

Exactly! I remember when Zacha got his first games a few seasons back at the end of the season, that was cool. I'd love to see a Hughes to Smith to Holtz for the one-timer on the PP ;)

I mean he’s 19, his SHL season is done, put him to work. Whether it’s on the big club or in the AHL, get him working toward contributing next season.
