doesn’t matter how you feel about this devils off-season so far, it couldn’t possibly be worse than whatever the actual fvck Philly is doing. 

jesus. 

And Chicago. Both league darlings that always get a ton of attention, too. Torts and De Angelo together is certainly going to be something…

johnny hockey grew up a massive flyers fan and he might go there.

but why voluntarily sign up to play with torts? if you’re a skill guy, he absolutely fvcking hates you and you absolutely fvcking hate him. who would willingly subject themselves to that?

That hopefully helps our chances to land him.

This may wind up the determining factor in him coming to us. I hope so anyway. 

If we do get Gaudreau, is Nico giving up his number?

I certainly wouldn’t think so. He’s a veteran, and the captain after all. 

And yeah - Philly is probably not in the running. I’d say it’s the Devils or re-signing with the Flames.

Is he a “veteran” already?? And Gaudreau is certainly more veteran. He is the captain and I don’t know how that factors in. 

Certainly seems wrong if Nico were to give it up.

Nico is definitely a veteran at this point. He’s already on his 2nd contract, and is going into his 6th season. 

I feel like only a scrub player or really young guy should be expected to give up their number. Not a #1OA who’s a captain, and has played in 300 games. The optics of taking a captains number would be weird, imo.

I’m sure if Gaudreau comes to the Devils the only number that will matter to him is in his bank account.

I think you’re probably right.

Edit- Nvm didn't realize it was the US who denied entry, The Wild should be able to resolve this fairly simple then.

Right, they just have to do it before Russia decides he isn’t going anywhere.

Forsberg pretty much a done deal

Damn that's a good deal for them.

Might look bad towards the back end, but I think there's a lot of value in the first 3/4 of the contract if he keeps putting up 30 to 40 goals a year.

Maybe Johnny wants to stop pucks with his body at 30.
