I’d prefer Keller

I was going to say that I'm not particularly interested in that contract but noticed he's pretty much PPG on a dogsh!t team this year... that would certainly be interesting.

Not sure why they'd move him though.

They have less than $2m in cap space, if they were looking to make another move and needed to clear salary, that would be why. 

But I would think they would start elsewhere, rather than a near PPG guy making under $5m.

He's put up 23 G and 31 A in his last 44 GP...they'd be nuts to deal him.  Has a cap hit of $7.15 million for six more years and is only 23...makes me wonder why the hell Arizona would want to trade him, but also what it would take to get him.  Gotta think Holtz is definitely one piece...maybe Mercer too.  Not saying that I'd want to deal them, but they're going to be looking for NHL-ready kids who aren't due much money.  

He's listed as a C...is that the position that he actually plays?

Elias with that +45 in 01…

goddamn that team was good. :(

 

2001 will always be up there with 1994 as what-might-have-been years to me. That 1999 series loss against Pittsburgh also sucked.

Damn. Just imagine what he will be able to do in a few years when he’s hitting his prime

I was there too. Crowd was buzzing all night 

I remember after the game when Kenny and Steve were doing postgame and the upstairs bar was just fvcking mobbed with everyone holding up their posters behind them, I went with my little brother and we had a gigantic "552" with Devils jersey lettering. Such a fun night.

I was there as well. One of the most enjoyable games ever. Patty broke the Devils point record too. My friend and I had gotten pretty lucky. We had bought tickets in like September because we wanted to be there for the throwback jerseys, not even thinking of the wins record. Then Marty’s injury happened and the record that we were expecting in December or so ended up on the same night. I remember tickets for that game skyrocketed when he started getting closer to 552

Yeah I was there too...might have been the night we saw each other.  Were you wearing Marty's QMJHL jersey that night?

Was it?  I was by myself that night...bought a single ticket.  No way I was gonna miss that one.  I missed Stevens and Elias (I didn't have the cash for Stevens off the secondary market at that time, and for Elias I had already booked a cruise with the family).

Marty's ceremony was SO top-notch...as was Patrik's.  Not that the others were bad, just that you could really see the evolution as each one unfolded.

I was there we made sure to get a program. (Remember them) I heard a women say if he breaks it tonight it doesn't have Marty's picture on it.  I want the program with Marty's picture on it.😬

I was there! I made a sign that said "HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY" but patrick was crossed out and MARTY was written underneath. It was a huge banner made out of a bedsheet cut in half, and was so large it was pretty visible from the ice. I know that, because Marty pointed at it and gave a thumbs up as he was skating off the ice. 

Somewhere on Youtube there's a broadcast of the game and coming back from the 2nd intermission before puckdrop (right after a segment of Chico Eats!) they showed my banner on TV and Doc said "Happy St. Marty's day, indeed!". In Marty's documentary on the NHL network that summer, the credits roll up over my face. My 5 seconds of fame.

I missed Dano and Stevens and I made sure to make the rest. The Elias one was fun because we got last minute tickets down low so we could see some of the details.  Yeah they’ve really gotten good at those. Hopefully we see another one in about 20 years!
