Unfortunate that Bratt wasn't selected but when it comes to fan vote, I can't remember a time a Devil fan was voted it.  We just cannot compete with the larger fanbases who will vote their own player in.

Absolutely knew 100% it would not happen for that reason.

Well you can't tease me with a notification like this

I somehow replied to a post you made about Marco Rossi way back in September (without noticing how old it was). :lol:

Ahhhh you remind me to do go check how he's doing and compared with Holtz lol

I was really bummed that we passed on him and took Holtz. So i'm really hoping that I was wrong then and that Holtz becomes the better player / best fit for us.

Rossi 25gm - 8 G / 17 A / 25 PTS in the AHL - 2gm in the NHL - 0pts

Holtz 14 GM - 7 G / 8 A / 15 pts in the AHL - 2 gm in the NHL - 2pts

So far Rossi has the edge but it's not like he's burning the league either so wtv

Rossi has 25 points in 27 games, a Holtz has 17 in 16 games. And two of Holtz’s are NHL points? I’m not sure I give the edge to Rossi in anything other than games played.

Yeah we could draft Rossi! Let’s sign Gaudreau on the market! Trade for Fiala! Resign Severson, bring back Butcher! Offensive dynamo team. Top 6 Jack, Nico, Jesper, Johnny, Fiala and Rossi(fockin holtz), and Hamilton, Severson, Hughes, Smith, Buther, Walsh as defenseman! Just imagine this force!

Great breakfast for strong grit opponent team, when they are on diet. Росси-хуеси. Rossi must be a good productive playmaking center, but this is nowhere close what the devils needs now and and what the devils were needed in 2020.

The real question is about Lundell and even Holloway can be the center of discussion.

Actually, here's the correct numbers:

 

Rossi:

AHL:  24 GP, 8 G, 17 A, 25 Pts, +3     NHL:  2 GP, 0 G, 0 A, 0 Pts, -1, 5 SOG, 15:53 ATOI

 

Holtz:

AHL:  14 GP, 7 G, 8 A, 15 Pts, E          NHL:  7 GP, 0 G, 2 A, 2 Pts, -3, 11 SOG, 11:42 ATOI

 

I'm sure there's metrics that better flesh out the above, but at this point, the samples are so puny that there's no declarations to be made, really.  They bring different skillsets anyway...one is supposed to be a playmaking center, the other will hopefully become a pure sniper of a winger.  It's so early to be saying this, but I could Holtz scoring some real "Holy shiiiiiiiiit!" kinds of goals...but only winding up with 25 or so of them a year, because the rest of the time he's firing pure logoseekers or missing the net by a mile...the kind of guy that you keep thinking will eventually score over 30 goals when it all comes together, but he just never seems to get there.

Not trying to make any definitive declarations...I'd like to see him at least get a couple of years with the big club (when he's ready, which isn't now) before even starting to make any determinations.  Just that based on what I've seen in the very early going, that it wouldn't shock me if he became a guy who has that cannon shot and who can score pretty too, but somehow doesn't find as much net as his highlight-reel goals suggests he should.  We'll see how he's doing in his Age 25 season.

I’m not sure I fully understand the escrow concept:

Ok, here’s a contract for $10 million. Now you give me $2 million back, I will see how we do, and depending on that we’ll give you back part or all of the $2m we gave you in your contract but then took back. 

Is that about it?

Something like that.

"hot" take - do you dangle Blackwood in front of Edmonton at the deadline?  

In desperate need for a goalie and Holland might be dumb enough to believe that he's still a legit #1

Blackwood for McDavid

The trade is 1-for-1

 

 

Goddamn I wish Chiarelli was still there

I would bet $10,000 if you gave McDavid 1 year to train as a goalie he'd be better than our Facebook Scientist.

You can hire me as your draft specialist, if you don`t wanna listen  things like "Holtz is on the same level of talent as Raymond", "Holtz is a good two way winger and he is better prospect than Mercer', "Quinn is overrated", "Edvinsson has no offensive upside, take him in the second ten", "Drysdale is better than Sanderson, Sanderson has 2nd pair upside maximun", "Byfield is much better than Stuzle" etc. uh. 

And I cant do anything with it. My voice is quiet.

There are racial gestures? What's wrong with the good old middle finger, official gesture of Staten Island?

Typical media report. It doesn't say what the racial gesture was. 

I'm sure it's fine, we can just take their word for it.

While you're busy taking yourself down from the cross in your weird anti-media rant, you can read and take his word for yourself

The one black kid on my team in HS got teased mercilessly by rich entitled white kids, which was about 90% of who played hockey locally in the 90’s. It was disgusting and led to many many fistfights that he didn’t get involved in because he knew all of the parents would blame him for everything.

That’s such a sad thing to read. And not surprising in the least.
