Not sure if anyone’s been watching these games, but outside of Nemec, the rest of the kids have been largely meh (outside of some moments here and there)…can’t say that I’m concerned for the most part.  Buffalo had a hell of a lot of first-rounders in the lineup…when you see some of the names that dressed for the Devils, it was hard to expect them to beat the Sabres.

The Stillman pick is looking really bad…unlike Nemec, who absolutely looks like he’s got the goods, it’s just really hard to see what Stillman’s gonna bring.  Fingers crossed.

My tops would be Nemec by a mile, then Filmon, Misyul, Squires, Clarke, then Stillman by a mile(at the bottom). I can't see Clarke coming anywhere close to cracking an NHL roster, let alone Stillman.

Anyone see anything about a jersey ad being put on our jerseys this season? The placement of the 40th anniversary logo on the shoulder last season still comes across to me as they just couldn't get a deal done with anyone last season in terms of money or whatever. 

With the team playing as well as they did last year it seems inevitable. 

Would love nothing more to be wrong!

If they can't find anyone shall we all club together and put in a bid for a NJDevs.com sponsor patch?

The Devils have the third most national broadcast games this season.  I feel like this will be the moment where we find out if the owners either respect the jersey or just couldn't make a deal last season.

The 76ers were the first NBA team to do it and still have one and their soccer team crystal Palace has an ad so it's not like the owners are against these types of things. It's really why I thought we would have one last year, especially cause the anniversary patch on the shoulder left the ad slot open too. 

Also the Cleveland Guardians added one this year...

Fair enough.  That seems like a good enough reason to believe that one is coming shortly.  Perhaps they didn't want to fvck up the jersey with the 40 year patch.  Look at how terrible this Ducks jersey looks with their 30 year patch.

nop he isn't there

Looked it up...both Nemec and Stillman got the game off.  Guess the Devils saw enough of both.

Nemec was definitely the best Devil here by far...can't wait for this kid to play with the big club.  Obviously not like this particular batch of kids was chock full of high-end talent, but based on what I saw in this very limited sample, not much finish there.

Nice rally at the end…a pair of quick ones from Squires and Middendorf to turn a 2–1 deficit to a 3-2 lead…Devils win 4-2 on the empty netter.

Can Nemec beat Miller RIGHT NOW???

I think the fact that Miller's here to begin with leads me to believe that Nemec is REALLY going to have to force his way into the immediate picture.  I can see him getting a look later in the season (say December), assuming Miller's healthy...should Miller get hurt, maybe we see Nemec much sooner.  But Fitz clearly does not want to rush this kid, and is willing to be very patient; fortunately the Devils are in a position where they can afford to do just that.  

Good news is that unless there's a lot of injuries on D, hard to imagine Brendan Smith is going to play in nearly as many games as he did last season.

Looking forward to seeing if Bahl can stick for the entire season...he really progressed nicely in 2022-23.  I had just about written him off.

FINALLY!  Man this offseason felt so much longer than most...not that I mind in that it's not like I'm ever in a rush for summer to end...but if fall's about to be thrust upon us, this is what I look forward to about it the most.
