Another fun discussion: https://www.si.com/hockey/news/1991-nhl-draft-retrospective-cmon-lets-make-a-deal?fbclid=IwAR2JNOlmQH7qeQGqbKfktAxMDxtTxxeiyw-cpP9rr62JYVKu_BGFpv9Tr5MIn one of the stronger pack-ages of any team, New Jersey offered Sean Burke, Stephane Richer, Claude Lemieux, prospect Scott Niedermayer, cash and draft picks. But talks between the Devils and the Nordiques never went anywhere. 

I knew the Devils had an offer on the table, but never knew exactly what it was.  Glad it never went anywhere…think about how important Richer and Lemieux were to Cup #1…and Niedermayer to all three of them.

Yeah that was an eye opener to read that. That was quite a package Lou put on the table- along with money (It’s shocking to think McMullen would’ve signed off on the money) and picks. Thank God it never happened.

On the other hand, we would live in a parallel universe where Stevens and Lindros played together, which would have completely altered the timeline. Lou would be rich, powerful, and married to your mother.

Weren’t J and W added at the same time?  Jeremy and William were twins.

Oh yeah, that sounds familiar.  I honestly don't remember, but you're probably right - it might have been J and W at once, and then A afterwards.

First was the A for Anthony, then J + W for Jeremy and William, and later another A for his daughter.  The Cups and gold medals were back there as well.  There’s a M as well too…not sure what that’s for.

It's gonna take me a while to not associate 7 with Tallinder or Tennyson and get really REALLY mad.... (yes, Merril and Fayne wore it between them but damn....)

I still think Paul Martin.

So as I searched for the 7s we've had on hockey-reference, I clicked over to the historical players chart, first looking at the number of guys that have played a game but got no points (there's 51, Boulton coincidentally had the most games played at 51 of that group) but with his next game started, Mac gets 100 starts in red and black.

Mac also is also 7 wins away from catching Chevrier, 16 from Burke and 21 from Chico.

I really see no reason he cant take over 4th in franchise wins next year, barring injury of course

That’s another humorous stat that shows just how many Devils games Brodeur played. A guy who is basically still in his infancy might be 4th in wins.

How about only 51 goalies have played in a game for the Devils FRANCHISE in 30+ years, that one honestly surprised me cause of how little the backups changed for Marty.

EDIT: Totally read it wrong, apologies for giving Fitz the heart attack.

51? What’s your source on that, I have it as far less.

Then you don’t know your team’s history. 

I was like 10 years old when he played for NJ lol. Anyway, I didn’t really start following the Devils until 2000. I do know most of the team’s history (Kirk Muller, Johnny Mac, etc), but I have to say, I’ve never heard of that guy.

He also was the Ducks' selection from us in the expansion, but most importantly he was the first Russian to sign for the franchise along with Fetisov.

Ah gothca. Now him I’ve heard of. ;)
