HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

They literally clown themselves.

The main color used for the special teams is at least fitting.

They're sh!tty no matter who is on the ice.

7. Is New Jersey working towards an extension with Tom Fitzgerald as general manager? Sounds like it. He has term on his contract, but only this season as GM. The last couple of weeks were very hard — especially that late collapse Sunday against Philadelphia — but, generally, the team is moving in the right direction. Just imagine if they get the No. 1 pick for the third time in five years.

I think I would enjoy the reaction around the league as much as the player the Devils would get.

Dude, I was laughing about this one this morning.  Look at this guy's comment.  I don't think anyone on this board is THAT subscribed to adv stats to actually think it's an advantage having Johnsson on the ice.

The “muh points” guy really is missing the point of advanced stats. These kinds of comments really make those types of stats less credible to everyone else.

So does saying they show Andreas Johnsson makes us better.

Kind of like with Zednik. I have read that if he hadn't had the power to skate himself to the bench as fast as he did he likely would have died.

Zednik also benefited from the fact the trainer/doc on staff was the same one who saved Malarchuk

Then it was probably like relaxing to him. Pretty crazy though that it was the same guy.

Didn’t need the word “Binghamton” on there, but I don’t hate it. 

Yeah, pretty much my reaction...it's OK...I'd ditch the Binghamton too.  Depending on how you look at the pitchfork, it looks like, well, a pitchfork...or a skinny red lizard about to crawl forwards. 

For the Utica jerseys, I'd love to just go back to the old red and greens, with the horned and tailed "U"...why not?

I'd still approve the heritage and RR jerseys becoming the Devils full-time jerseys (either with the green or the green swapped out for black), with the "old" red and blacks as a third...but I know that's never happening.

I actually don’t know and CapFriendly has it as “unknown”. But, he’s a coach, and teams don’t seem to worry about coaches’ contracts when deciding to let them go.

Yeah searched for that info and couldn’t find anything.  I’d be surprised if they bailed on him after just one season, but it happens.  And maybe both ownership and Fitz are a little more trigger-happy after Hynes was allowed to stick around too long.

I certainly don’t think there is a performance based reason to do it. But if the theory is a super young team could benefit more from a younger coach, I can certainly see the argument. Though I also see the benefit in having an older, more authoritative coach rather than someone who is “one of the guys” as well.
