GDT: Buffalo @ Devils 7:00 PM MSG+ Reverse Retros?


Recommended Posts

I would like to say that if the Devils are indeed wearing the green Reverse Retros for tonight’s game, it will be fitting that the first time the Devils would ever wear a jersey with green as the predominant color would come the day after NJ officially legalized weed.  Poetic and beautiful and hilarious all at once. 🤣LGD.

Amanda has no idea how to just ignore troll posts, it's absolutely pointless that she responds and gives attention to this stuff and the team should tell her to ignore it. It's not even a Devils fan,

That’s my real beef.  They has no business keeping him at all.

Hall with just 4 A in his last 12 GP (NO goals in his last 14 GP).  Outside of 2017-18 (a terrific year no matter how you slice it), he's been pretty underwhelming since the start of the 2014-15 season...in the non-2017-18 seasons combined over that time frame, he's averaged 22.6 G and 42.8 A per 82 GP (and of course, has missed a number of games due to injury)...in his last 80 GP (for three different teams, none of whom have gotten much of a jolt from his presence), he's scored just 17 goals (62 points).  I'd still consider him on a two-year deal, but not sure why anyone would want to commit to him long-term at this point.

It's the same problem with him...the promise of what everyone thinks he can be has so rarely been reached in his career.  2017-18 felt like his arrival, the beginning of his truly putting it all together...not that he was going to keep repeating that level of success, but that he'd be much more of a consistent impact player going forward.  I still think his career takes an odd path from here on out...he's now on his fourth team, and I can see him playing for twice that many by the time his career wraps up.  His career will have been solid (with one big year), but not what fans would've thought.  Just feels like something will always be missing with him.

I mean, he's still outscoring every player on our team except for two. But yeah, I expected more from him. 

Let's wear our green jerseys tonight (be careful with mine, Mac), and beat their asses. 

At least we know we won't give all of them COVID again...or will we????

Actually, Hughes is the only Devils player with more points than Hall atm. 

Buffalo's played in two more games than the Devils too.

Nope. Palms has 9 points. Hall has 10. 

Hmm, then fvck me for not checking, I thought Palms had 10. 

EDIT: looked at stats, I was off by an assist.

Let me add to that, funny how people were calling for Palmieri's head last week, now he's got 9 points in 12 games, a better beard, and he is second on the team in scoring, and not by a lot. 

Whoever had "he's always streaky" (I believe @Colorado Rockies 1976 is the guy who usually says it), you win.

Last year, he was actually quite steady:

1st 20 games:  7 G, 5 A

2nd 20 games:  8 G, 8 A

3rd 20 games:  8 G, 8 A

Final 5 games:  2 G, 0 A

And for the hell of it, I decided to go back to all of his seasons as a Devil, to see if he's really as streaky as we all think he is.  Using the 20-game blocks, here's the numbers:

2015-16:  1st 20 - 9 G, 7 A; 2nd 20 - 10 G, 4 A; 3rd 20 - 5 G, 4 A; last 22 - 8 G, 10 A

2016-17:  1st 20 - 3 G, 6 A; 2nd 20 - 5 G, 8 A; 3rd 20 - 11 G, 7 A; last 20 - 7 G, 6 A

2017-18:  1st 20 - 5 G, 8 A; 2nd 20 - 9 G, 4 A; Final 22 - 10 G, 8 A (only played 62 games that year)

2018-19:  1st 20 - 12 G, 9 A; 2nd 20 - 8 G, 7 A; 3rd 20 - 6 G, 5 A; Final 14 - 1 G, 2 A

And I've already provided the 2019-20 numbers.  The variance isn't quite as wide as I would've thought.

What's funny is that even now, I get the impression that a lot of fans don't believe in him as a goal scorer, and that he's just going to completely disappear one day...despite five years of evidence that strongly suggest that he should be counted on for rates of 30 G per 82 GP and 27 A per 82 GP.  I admit that I was concerned about how bad he looked early on, but not so much that I was going to give up on him without seeing a lot more proof that he couldn't regain his scoring touch.

Lame. I wanted to see those things on the ice. 

All but the Caps game were moved around. If they are sticking with the original schedule on the new dates the retro games should now be... 

3/2 - NYI at 7pm

3/6 - NYR at 1pm

3/18 - PIT at 7pm

4/2 - WASH at 7pm

4/9 - PIT at 7pm
