I'm hearing that, too. He hasn't played with grit since 2019. Why is that? I think the Bruins might ask for Bratt or Zacha to add more skill. Maybe they would settle for Tatar and McLeod.

It's hard not to think that based on we've seen so far.

yeah he just seem faster, better scorer, better passer, work harder, better forecheck, smarter with and without the puck, always creating things and hustling, always noticeable when he's on the ice, always smiling...

He has been putting both of them in the 4th lone at various times this season. Laf was the latest of the two to see time on the 4th line. 

and how is that a bad thing when they've both been bad at times? Why gift anybody anything, make them earn it. It finally seems like Kakko is doing something Laf still struggling along and has played himself off the top line because he couldn't get it done.  Sh!t I'm thrilled they're struggling but can't imagine the thought of how they're being handled by Gallant is a bad thing. After being asked a question by Molly Walker who apparently covers the team  after a game in which Laf started in the bottom six and ended up stapled to the bench he snapped at her by saying I'm not answering any questions about Laf that stays within the room. By all accounts he's a players coach they know exactly where they stand with him. 

Kravstov couldn't figure it out with either set og GM/coaches - he thinks he's a top six or better now they don't feel he's even in NHL shape and he refused to play in hartford.

I give Ruff credit for benching some guys but let's see it where nobody that deserves it is exempt.  Time will tell.

Nico has been disappointing so far-- I don't think anyone can or would argue that point. I do think some of you are too quick to fall into doom and gloom and just write players off. Something is up with some of our players. It would be a pretty big coincidence we are 25% through the season and so many of them are still struggling to get their sh!t together. I'm not trying to sound conspiracy-like or anything, but I do think about how Nico could settle a game down and lead by example in the past...specifically I remember how he really got a fire in his ass once Hall was gone and he put the team on his shoulders for a while there and really made it happen at a time when everyone was ready to count the team out as 100% losers after the trade deadline. He is still 100% capable of being that kind of player but, for whatever reason, right now he is struggling. I don't want to turn on him so quickly and boo him out of town or rip the C off of his jersey.

Players are people too. There are things behind the scenes we don't always know about, like with what Sal was going through with his head issues and whatever, so I am not going to be so quick to just write Nico off as a disappointment because he is struggling after coming off a year where he has barely played and had a broken leg and face. Something may be going on with this team. It doesn't even feel morale is too high right now either, which it should be given Jack is back and they just got Bastian who was a LR favorite guy. Something feels off to me about the atmosphere and the way the team is performing.

 Because I don't think you are going to get a scoring winger doing what he does best on the 4th line with only 9 minutes of ice time.

I’m just relieved someone has a worse take on Jack than me. Suddenly “He had a bad rookie year, I hope he improves” ain’t so bad. 

I know being a clown is kind of your thing, but saying  "He had a bad rookie year, I hope he improves" is a bad take.

First of all, fvck you, you’re a clown. 

Second, that’s what I said after his rookie season. On what planet is that a bad take, you moron?

How 'bout you answer the question i asked you the other day pal.

Jack now has 4 pts in 5 games. 2 of those games being off position and coming back from a major injury.

You've been sh!tting on him all season.

So you tell me. What stats / expectations did you have that makes you sh!t on him constantly this season? Give us a stat or anything. Cause right now you're just saying he's not worth the hype or wtv, that means nothing.

Responding to Loser is pretty much pointless.  It’s one thing if one or more of the many people that I actually respect on this site make a point that I don’t agree with, and then a reasonably civilized debate follows.  That’s not what Loser has any interest in.

Loser doesn’t come in here to talk Devils hockey; he wants to start sh!t and try to push buttons for the sake of doing so…some people with little else to do find that entertaining.  SD, you’re giving him way too much credit and respect in trying to have any legit back and forth with him.

Well i dunno i can't say that i really knew or remembered him or any of his stances / posts before all this. So i just wouldn't take a biased perspective or projecting his intentions. I'm just asking him straight up to answer that very basic and fair question. If he doesn't then he's very clearly a troll and coward and that's where i'll stop respecting him.

I do trust due process lol

I don’t mind a good trolling, but that’s not even good trolling lol.
