Funny, the happiest moment I'll have of Ty is when he snuck up on Jack during his interview, and Jack's reaction.

Smith should've spent some time in Bingh./Utica, to work on the basics against AHL competition.

lets calm down a little bit haha 

Lets remember that we almost ALL fully believed Larsson, Urbom, Gelinas, Corrente, Merril, Fayne, Helgeson, Burlon, Scarlett etc etc was going to be the next Stevens Niedermayer Rafalski Daneyko haha

Our D and its future honestly looks real good, but still, let's wait a bit before claiming we'll win a cup with it hahaha

And before that was Paul Martin and David Hale as the next Nieds and Stevens.

Its been too long since we’ve had a stacked team.   I’m optimistic we will be there soon.

I always liked Paul Martin, he certainly wasn't the next Nieds or Stevens but he had a solid NHL career and was actually in the playoffs every season of his career.

I don’t really know Marino, and I’m still thinking it was too soon to give up on Ty, but if we were going to move on while his value was so low, this seems like a good return.

Fitz has done pretty well to overhaul the D in the last couple of seasons. It's a shame it didn't work out for Ty but I can't wait to see what our defense looks like with the new personnel and new coach.

So this is a great trade for the future of the team.

They got bigger, they got more responsible in their own zone, and they now can think about making a big trade for a winger, using a certain right handed, soon to be free agent defenseman.

I think if they can find the right player they want, they do that trade now and not at the deadline.

I don't see how they keep DS after this, with Marino, Dougie & Nemec, you have your 3 right d for the long term, so it's just a question of, can you get the player you want now, or do you wait until mid season and get draft compensation plus a prospect.

The way I am thinking, I try and find a partner now, one who would want DS to be a future part of their team, and they want to change up their core.

I don't know who that is, I call Calgary of course, but yeah there has to be a team out there who the Devils can work with here, DS does have lots of fans, and hopefully they can find the right team with the right player they target.

To add to what Guadana said, they absolutely should be looking to lock up guys they believe are core players now and save future money. There is a reason Tampa is so good at this, you look at the 3 guys they signed, the Devils need to start doing that now, they already messed up with Bratt, don't do the same thing with others core players.

I saw him in playoffs. They are calling him top 4 because the Penguins we're pretty beat up. They kind of limped into the playoffs. 

He's a guy we won't even notice is out there kind of Dman. 

I'm kind of shocked PIT pulled the trigger on this one. Weird move for them. Maybe Letang will help him figure it out. I'd wish him the best but we have to go right through them this year. 

 

Just gotta figure out the cap now with the RFAs.

I just saw Jason MacIsaac on twitter mention this, and yeah this makes all the sense in the world to do this as we know they have liked DS for a long time.

 

Nylander for DS, I think this has a real chance of happening unless Fitz has someone else in mind.

 

In the replies to his tweet, I see more than one person throwing in a Miller trade and sending DS home, that makes a lot of sense too. Of course both players would have to be signed before either team does that I think.

That works, we’ve been noticing them for all the wrong reasons. 

Figure out the cap?? We have room for virtually anything.

Vancouver is who I call- JT Miller is who I’m targeting.

he has the second most minutes played on pittsburgh last season and third most ATOI/G. they’re calling him top-4 because he’s top-4.

He makes a lot of sense, DS signed to a long term deal, Foote and a future 2nd round pick in 24 for a signed Miller, maybe?

Something like that works fine for me.

Is it better to call for Miller rather than having a call to Calgary to this little big forward that would look so good with us?  Or Calgary wouldn't want Sev?

Ah well Pittsburgh just got Petry. Makes a bit more sense now

I think Petry is a downgrade from Marino though, if not just for age alone.

Petry is fine but Marino is on the rise.

yah but its not leaving as much as a hole.

Also god knows what Smith will do. He actually has a history of being great one year and bad the other... back and forth... so he's scheduled to have a good year this year lol

Very deep at D now and I'd almost say crowded if Nemec is in the mix. It's going to be hard for him to make the team. Marino also brings playoff experience. Fitz is paying for it for depth and he is preparing to make a push. My guess is that he doesn't want to see another year derailed due to injuries. 

We gotta get to the dance bois.
