Well, for starters, I mentioned that maybe it speaks volumes of him as a player, and maybe it doesn't. I get that you feel that he's underrated, and I'm not saying I necessarily disagree. I'm just saying that for whatever reason I kind of forgot about his presence on the team so far this season.  

Beyond that, I think perhaps one of the reasons why you or others see him as an impact player and valuable to the team highlights just how bad we have been and how much we're lacking true offensive threats. On most other teams, Wood would probably be a third line player, at best. 

Not trying to disrespect him, I like the guy a lot, just stating what I see/how I feel.  

 

I never said underrated or overrated. He's presence just isn't as forgettable as you made it out to be in your comment and wanted to point out he had a decent year last year by Wood/NJD standards. That is all.

i mean, have we been "this bad" ? we've been playing without our 2 top goalies, our top centre and missing a few other guys here and there. And we're 3-2-0. Realistic expectations for this team were to be a bubble team maybe challenging for a wildcard spot. And well this is precisely what our record is so far.

I think people are just anticipating the worst. 

They may end up being very, very right, but I think that’s what’s happening.

I didn't mean we've been bad this season - was talking about in the past.

yeah everything considered we did pretty damn good this season so far, pretty on par with expectations, even slightly higher.

Sucks we're in a very tough division though

 

but, with a point today, we climb into a wild card spot. I'll freaking take being this close throughout the time without Jack

yeah exactly. We're tied with 5 others teams right now so we could drop quite a few spots if we don't but wtv, very early. Obviously there's team below us like boston, islanders that we just know won't stay there over the season. I also assume Bufgalo, detroit and the rangers will drop eventually. hopefully the hurricanes too

hate to post a my son heard from his friend, who was Miles Woods roomate in college-  i know, one of these

But he just heard from Miles, will be having hip surgery- out 6mths or more.  And that Jacks evaluation will be

one where his shoulder either makes great/complete progress by Dec,

or he may be done, also with a procedure- will decide then.

If your son got that straight from the horse’s mouth, then that fvcking blows.

i know-  we actually heard from this kid 2 weeks ago that Miles wasnt coming back, but i thought

it may be one of those he/she saids,  but he just heard from him today.  Sounds legit unfortunatly

 

I just hope Jack’s shoulder responds. The last thing we need is to lose him for the whole year.

I suppose it could equally mean he’s recovered to where he doesn’t need a sling, or he’s derailing his recovery by not wearing the sling even though he needs it. 

I prefer to believe the former.

An eagle eye on Reddit posted this; that’s our guy in the locker room not wearing a sling.

i saw another angle and read that it's actually just a cardboard cutout of Jack put there to boost the team moral. Nothing to see here.
