Since most camps have opened are opening up, might as well fire up a thread.
Despite his modest #'s J Hughes had a pretty impressive highlight reel. Finishing was not a strength so he's part to blame for those #'s, but guys were just not ready for some of the passes he was dishing out. I kind of feel like guys need to catch up with him, moreso then he needing to catch up to the league.He also worked out on the ice with his older brother Quinn, who is probably Canucks best defenseman, so his game should be sharp coming in.
I like having veterans around, not really in a rush to trade anyone. Aside from Crawford i'd advocate bringing all those guys back next year.Devils can be significantly better than last year and still get a top 3-5 pick
Schedule is brutal for a young team.
I’d go full youth movement this year and make a big decision on palmieri ,Zajac , woods and Crawford at the trade deadline
I think he wants a short contract while Devils want a longer one.I don't think they will trade Zajac like they did Greene
PaulMary, possibly since he can get back a decent haul.
I could see Boston offering a 1st and a top prospect.
Can Devils fans explain why Bratt isn't signed yet?
Billionaire owners, well under the cap, Bratt is obviously talented.
I don’t think it will be shortened either but if was...start it when it normally does, still have the Winter Classic (get rid of the stupid “Stadium Series”) along with the All Star game and let it finish when it really should...before Memorial Day.Nothing like spring weather and playoff hockey, something about it, but they're never going to shorten the season, NHL teams simply can't afford to do that unless they lower the cap and players will never bite on that.
At least the NHL should start in Nov and end in April. The regular season is long, boring, and mostly meaningless (i.e., playoff seeds mean nothing).I don’t think it will be shortened either but if was...start it when it normally does, still have the Winter Classic (get rid of the stupid “Stadium Series”) along with the All Star game and let it finish when it really should...before Memorial Day.
Yuck. Pretty much the exact opposite of cool:Oh, the one thing that the NHL really missed on (shocker), should have gone old school to name these “temp” divisions:
North -> Adams
East -> Patrick
Central -> Norris
West -> Smythe
Its only as matter of time before we see Honda , Ford , PRUDENTIAL , etc. on jerseys . The New Jersey Prudential Devils. God help us !Yuck. Pretty much the exact opposite of cool:
The National Hockey League (NHL®), in partnership with Discover, Honda, MassMutual and Scotiabank today announced the official division names for the 2020-21 season: Scotia NHL® North Division, Honda NHL® West Division, Discover NHL® Central Division and the MassMutual NHL® East Division
I think the NHL is one of the last leagues/tourneys to not have Ads on the jersey/helmets. Jeez, I remember not that long ago NHL had clean dashers. All of that is going away.The kids are already wearing Chipotle on their stuff at the Junior Worlds.
Whatever helps pay the bills.I think the NHL is one of the last leagues/tourneys to not have Ads on the jersey/helmets. Jeez, I remember not that long ago NHL had clean dashers. All of that is going away.
Welcome to the FedEx Cup Playoffs.
....and....it’s here already.Whatever helps pay the bills.
Would prefer they leave the uniform alone but everything else should be up for grabs.
Faceoff circle is next like in Europe. How
