I am struggling to find the meaning in this post. You've got people out here talking about pornstars and you're telling me I'm disgusting?

You're not wrong, I'm just curious about the "why"! 

Sometimes it’s just the company you keep, my man. 😀

I don’t know about you, but the team reads my message board posts and acts accordingly. It’s the only reason Zacha is good now. Next season Jack will be finishing like Peter North and you will all tha

AM I TAKING FVCKING CRAZY PILLS ARE YOU SUGGESTING WE SIGN KYLE PALMIERI FOR SIX MORE SEASONS?!? SOMEONE GET ME A PAPER BAG

The post that caused this fire storm, for those keeping score at home:

"I honestly have no clue what the holy hell Kyle Palmieri you guys watch that you want to pay him 5+m for 3+ seasons. 

Where is he going to play? Kyle Palmieri cannot be on a 3rd or 4th line. He’s slow, he turns the puck over and he backchecks like a peewee. Do any of you think those traits improve with age? In any universe? 

Let’s say he gets signed for 3 years. There are 4 wing positions in the top two lines up for grabs. Sharangovich, Bratt and Holtz will/should occupy at least three of them during Palmieri’s tenure. Pavel Zacha should be on Nico’s wing but that’s fine if you want to leave him as 3C. 

Up the pipeline we have Foote, who is a shoot-first player with a dime of a snipe. Then you have Dawson Mercer who can play sorta anywhere, but looks to be a top-6 forward with increasingly-rising stock after the draft. Tyce Thompson, Graeme Clarke? Hell, even Kuokkonen looks more deserving right now than Palmieri.

So where, in the name of god, do you stick Palmieri? Do you let an aging, shoot-first streaky and lazy veteran hockey player steal top-6 minutes from the kids? Top-line PP minutes? 

Signing Kyle Palmieri to anything longer than 2 years is a major step backwards for this franchise, and it’ll be a sad day if it happens."

I was then asked multiple times if I needed to call... 911? Presumably because I was suicidal? But then we've got members who haven't been around in 15 years telling me I'm disgusting while a 5 other people make ejaculation puns.

Accurate summary.

I would like Kulikov back, but at the same time , you see what you can get. 

Will also be interesting to see how this affects our expansion draft plan.

Agree totally on Kulikov. If in fact an extension has been discussed and has not been achieved, then you get what you can get. I hope they considered that.

I mean there was never a more obvious case of a guy being primed for sale at the deadline. 1 year deal on a disaster of a team, he has looked like sh!t so they probably don’t want him back at what he expects to earn.

Answer the question.

my dude, I’ve got literally no clue what you’re on about but there’s a handy dandy ignore button if you’d rather not engage with me. none of my posts seem to be out of line here but you’re really upset about them, lil fella.

Package deal 

Palms and Dmitry Kulikov to the Boston Bruins. Devils retain half of Palms salary.  Bruins need a left handed defenseman and secondary scoring.  What can the Devils get in return?

Does 911 assist in trade negotiations? This may be what we have been doing wrong...

The way things are going for Boston they could use all the help they can get even with a healthy team to play in the finals. BTW, MB3, I need 911, 611, 311 and another "11" daily. Have a nice day.

This apparently aired on NHL Newtork. I’m leaving it here because I am a sh!t stirrer and I want to watch some guys heads explode.

That’s..... something. Can’t ever see it happening though.
