  3. GDT: Columbus @ Devils 7:00 PM

    LGD!!! I'm going to piggyback on MadDog's Hall quotes with these - all good stuff! Amanda Stein ‏Verified account @amandacstein #NJDevils: Taylor Hall said the last time he had this much fun playing hockey in February was in Junior. Taylor Hall on being 26 and in the playoff race for the first time, at this time of year, in his career: “I think I’ve played on some bad hockey teams, if you want me to put it bluntly.” Taylor Hall: “John Hynes has given me the most accountability than any other coach.” Andrew Gross‏ Verified account @AGrossRecord Taylor Hall praises his relationship with John Hynes. Says often in Edmonton he was looking not to talk to coaches. Just wanted to go out and play.

    I'm beginning to think we could get a 3 for Lovejoy if we were so inclined.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Seems like a fair trade for both sides. Holden is decent but being asked to do too much this year (much like Lovejoy for us last year) 3rd rounders are more miss than hit. Not sure about this O'Gara guy but he's already 24 with not much offense to his game.

    Don't think Shero will trade young assets for Karlsson. He has a plan for this team, and he isn't going to throw young pieces away for Karlsson imo. Injury issues, might not even stay here long-term. We also have Hall, Hischier, etc. to re-sign soon enough.

    Too much. Severson, Zacha OR McLeod, one 1st and maybe a 2nd is as high as I’d go. Maybe add Zetterlund or Boqvist. Without the guarantee of re-signing him that would hurt our future too much. Plus his injury should be a concern as he has not returned to his normal self yet.

    LGD, keep it going.
  13. Wood suspended two games

    I follow you. We can agree on Marchand at least. A guy who averages a suspension per season should have a different penalty other than a 5 game suspension.
  14. All purpose general trade speculation thread

    Correct; I missed the conditional part the first time I read it. Doesn't change anything though for NJ. Hopefully NJ's first rounder this year will be middle of the pack (or maybe even lower) and nowhere near the lottery, 2019's I would lottery protect but also insist that EK stays for the gobs and gobs of money that he'll earn. Certainly I don't agree with EJ that a team will have to send both first rounders. Either or.
  15. GDT: Columbus @ Devils 7:00 PM

    Bjorkstrand and Dubinsky show up against NJ like they have their calendars marked in advance. It's incredibly annoying.
  16. All purpose general trade speculation thread

    The Sens will almost certainly have their first rounder this year, since as part of the Duchene deal, it was protected if it turns into a top ten pick, which looks very, very likely. So it'll slide to next year where I don't think it's lottery protected.

    Sweden is attempting to atone for the disappointment of Bergfores, Tedenby, and Josefson with the real deal Bratt
  18. All purpose general trade speculation thread

    I was 100% certain that tedenby was going the other way and I would have jumped off a cliff. He was the chosen one.
  19. All purpose general trade speculation thread

    i still remember where i was and all when it was announced. I remember being shocked, happy but insanely nervous cause there was rumours that Elias was part of the deal. Refreshing like a motherfvcker to see what the return was. Then i remembered being like "oh? thats it?"
  20. All purpose general trade speculation thread

    HAHAHAHAHAHAH. Severson-Zacha-McLeod and 2 1st round picks for a guy who’s had injury concerns and has 1 year left on his contract before he breaks the record for most expensive defenseman ever. Go FVCK yourself EJ.
  21. All purpose general trade speculation thread

    we absolutely can't send Zacha AND McLeod... our depth at center would be gone. Quenneville might be able to pick up a bit of up but we'll need someone for when we can somehow get rid of Zajac in a few years
  22. Wood suspended two games

    I see where you're coming from, but leaving your feet isn't covered by a specific in game penalty. It's supposed to be suspensable 100% of the time simply because it's that dangerous. There are terms of engagement, an accepted right and wrong way to engage in contact, in every contact sport. Those baseline accepted rules exist for a reason. Sometimes accidents happen due to the speed of the game, like Halls case, but I don't think there are many scenarios worth the DOPS looking at where a player has a legitimate excuse for finishing a check while leaving his feet. If the intent isn't there on a simple accident you have a case for the DOPS not wasting their time even looking at it because there is no behavior to correct. You can land a huge check the right way where 99% of the time and you won't end a person's career in the process. In these cases, intent and injury should not be factored in. If it's a violation, it's a violation. All hitting should not be removed and I don't like the shift towards a less physical game and these tightened rules meant to aid skilled players(BS slashing calls). This doesn't mean players shouldn't be held accountable if they violate the terms of engagement. Dangerous practice is dangerous practice, and while a huge guy like Getzlaf might get back up a player like Nico Hischier might not. I would rather see the offending player correct the dangerous behavior before they hurt someone. To partially continue on the Marchand rant... If the DOPS even did a halfway decent job, Marchand wouldn't still be intentionally elbowing people in the head. How absolutely fvcked would this team be if that was Hall and not MoJo? And Marchand is still playing! It's unbelievable. They never get it right, which is why some players don't correct their behavior. There's no incentive. On the other hand, Wood probably got the message on leaving his feet. Anyway, I hope you understand where I'm coming from.

    Does anyone else get a “Kovalchuk” vibe to this trade? Something we’ve kicked around for months, occasionally noted in the media we’d be a good fit.... I remember that trade being so unbelievably shocking but something we all “called” well in advance.
  24. GDT: Columbus @ Devils 7:00 PM

    It doesn’t need to be said but I’ll say it anyway; this game has enormous playoff implications. With how well the Flyers have been playing lately it’s looking very likely that the final 2 playoff spots will either go to NJD, NYI, CBJ or CAR. They’re without Foligno tonight and Johnson’s trade demands have to be causing some disarray in the locker room this close to the trade deadline. A regulation win tonight goes a long way towards making the playoffs.
  25. All purpose general trade speculation thread

    The Sens don't have a first or second this year, according to capfriendly. I'm sure gaining either or both of those would be huge for them. I wouldn't mind sending a 2018 or 2019 first as part of a package, but it would be lottery protected and I would also put conditions on EK resigning in two years.

    I'm glad EJ Hradek isn't our GM then. Karlsson isn't going for full value. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
