Your New Jersey Devils Regular Season Thread: 2022-2023 Edition


Crisis

Ya last year was bizarre. I've never seen such horrible goaltending and the sheer amount of menders needed.  One positive note, Schmid emerged from that year of goaltending sh!t as a much better player, like a phoenix rising from the sh!t ashes. And yes I'm speaking like Mr. leahey a bit. Love that show.

Well no defenseman to replace Smith, and no other bottom 6 forward besides Lazar, but it's really hard to be disappointed in anything TF has done this season besides the mistakes he made with Holtz.

I guess Luke is next man up, as I can't see Smith playing in the playoffs unless for injuries, and even if there were I would rather Luke, Bahl and even Simon be in the lineup than him.

I hope Holtz is healthy and can play for Utica soon and he finishes the season strong and if they need him, he gets himself ready to help NJ.

I think Akira has a chance here to put a big foot forward on his future with these next games, he deserves to play, and if he can continue to be steady it helps solve another big issue next season when it comes to the Cap.

Understand that they will build strong top 6 with Meier but it could be very interesting if they could try to use Nico/Mercer/Jack/Bratt/Timo core as three lines material. 

Something like 

Tatar Nico Mercer

Bratt Haula Meier

Palat Jack Sharangovich

Or

Bratt Boqvist Meier

Haula Jack Palat

or

Meier Jack Sharangovich

Palat Haula Bratt

 

Just to have three dominant lines.

Does lazar come into the lineup or is he out healthy scratch depth guy ?

I’d personally bring him in, maybe on the wing Or even to spell Haula?

Mcleod was lights out on faceoffswhen it mattered last night. Think he was 4 for 4 in OT.

gotta keep playing Wood because of his heater.

Maybe scratch Bastian to give them a different look?

Lazar plays with more pace than bastian. Might be a good fit with wood and McLeod?

Honest broker: I’m unfamiliar with his play other than knowing he plays defensively, can fight and doesn’t take stupid penalties. That’s the type of player we’ll need in our lineup for sure come the brutal stretch vs Tampa.

Maybe even send a msg to Trouba and the Rangers.

Lol. lazar is tiny, not close to listed six feet tall, more like 5'8". He won't be sending any scary messages to NYR, but he may be a hardworking penalty killer.

What are you talking about?  He’s listed as 6’ 0” and 203 lbs.

As I said, that bio is wrong. I've seen him play in Ottawa after first being drafted.

He’s listed as 6’ 0” everywhere.  All of those sources are wrong?

Been to that mall a few times…I’ve seen the rink but never watched a game there.  That’s gotta be a hoot.

Bastian is the best player of the fourth line
