While watching the Hurricanes continue to make the same mistakes, I thought of this Scott Stevens quote:

"If you’re just going to have the mindset where you say, 'Well we’re just going to play the same way we’ve played all year, because we got here by playing that way,' that won’t work. Some teams are better at making adjustments on the fly than others. Some teams resist it. Some players resist it. And usually that is their demise.”

That’s a weird tag up rule. I would’ve thought Makar would still have to exit and reenter the zone.

Yeah I thought that was no goal for sure. I was wrong lol

I guess this is somewhat unrealistic since Toronto was basically forced to get rid of Kadri when he kept getting himself suspended for the playoffs, but watching Kadri and Hyman light up the scoreboard, it seems like I’m hindsight they would have been a lot better off not signing Tavares.   It cost them guys like Kadri, Hyman and Connor Brown not to mention the 1st rounder they had to use to get rid of Marleau since his contract no longer fit.   They had a lot of really good home grown middle 6 guys they pissed away.

Seeing these young teams in the Western Conference Finals after watching them slowly develop over  the last few years really has me excited for that to be the Devils again one day. We still need a lot of pieces, but some of them are there. I think Bastian for example is a guy who would be valuable in a playoff run.

Yeah but, did any of them have Leafs' pajamas so the social media team could post for likes?

I mean likes are as good as a cup nowadays.

Binnington might be the softest goalie in the history of the sport

I've disliked the dude ever since his Spittin Chiclets interview where he said something like "and then the dude comes over for one year and takes my number", in regards to Marty's brief stint with the Blues.

Like, what?  The greatest ever is going to grace your (at the time) dogsh!t franchise and you're going to declare #30 to be your number?  Check that ego bro, you fvcking pigeon.

I listened to that interview and he said it very very very very tongue in cheek. 

He sounds like a total dweeb but he’s also said multiple times he wears 30 because of Marty. I’m sure he was beyond thrilled to share the goalie room with him.

I’m hoping this guy puts the Rags away in overtime at least once this series. 

Finally an NHL player with a fond childhood Devils memory aside of "Marty poster on my wall". Kind of nice, not going to lie.

I'm an honorary Tampa fan for the ECF. Go Bolts!

Yeah it’s really awesome to see. So many players from the area are Ranger or Flyers fans, great to see one who grew up with the Devils.

remember when tom gulitti worked for the devils and we actually got non-shoe-related Devils updates every once in a while? what a dream.
