Yeah Henrique definitely seemed like a fan favorite for the Devils and it always sucks to see a player like that get moved. 

I was impressed by Vatanen in the playoff series vs the Preds last year. I think he will be a solid addition to y’all. 

Someone on /r/hockey put it like this. Hall and Vatanen is major upgrade on Larsson and Henrique. I’d have to agree with that.

Right? I feel like Devils would be the best story in the league right now if not for those fuckers.

Just finished up watching the retrospective on NBCSports about the first Winter Classic. What a great atmosphere and weather for that game, couldn't have asked for anything better. The Pens winning also helped with my hangover at the time :ack:

Tough game for the Pens on a back to back night after playing the Caps. Top 2 teams in the division 2 nights in a row. Devils look good. The Metro is tight.

In regards to the non-goal by Crosby in the third, pretty interesting situation. Didn't think Rust's contact with the goalie warranted the reaction but maybe the blade of the stick caught his throat. Idk, not a typical goalie interference from my perspective. Hard call to make.

I thought Kinkaid sold it a bit until I saw the overhead view. There was absolutely enough contact to make the call, IMO.

I must've missed the overhead. We weren't gonna win anyway. I haven't seen the Devils play at all this year. I know they're 2nd in the Metro but that's about it. Think they can do some damage in the playoffs?

Hard to say. They’re really young. Sami Vatanen has helped sure up the defense, and Taylor Hall has taken his game to another level this year. They’ll need Cory Schneider to return to form when he comes back from his groin injury, but they really do have the speed and skill to play with any team in the league on any given night. I hope they can make some noise in the playoffs, but just getting in would be huge for this team. They’re definitely ahead of schedule. 3 out of 4 of their top scorers are rookies...

Have I mentioned I really love Taylor Hall? I honestly think he should be a Hart candidate.

Got to go to the Pens v Leafs last night. Never seen more away fans at a Pitt game in my life. They travel well. Awesome atmosphere. Had a blast.

We're rolling right now. ZAR is lookin good!

Taylor Hall now has points in 18 straight. Devils franchise record. Nico Hischier has also been red hot lately.

Ray Shero really is a maverick lol. I never thought I’d see the day the Devils and Rags made a trade between them. Devils landed Michael Grabner for Yegor Rykov (who’s currently playing in Russia) and a 2nd. Grabner will be a nice fit with his speed, and they desperately needed some goal scoring from someone besides Hall. Kinda pricey if he ends up only being a rental, but hopefully he’ll sign.

I remember when Shero was Poiles assistant GM. Always liked him. 

Pekka got his 300th win tonight the ledge
