Jack Hughes with his first NHL goal against big brother Quinn’s Canucks. He’s looking better and better every game. Pretty much everyone said Kakko was more NHL ready due to his size, but Hughes definitely looks like he belongs. With the Devils locking up Nico Hischier for the next 7 years, they’re going to be set down the middle for quite awhile. 

The "strong down the middle" model is Shero's modus operandi. Worked out well for the Pens for a time, just have to watch out for when he starts dealing at the deadline.

@Mark Antony

what do you think of Josi’s deal? Term seems a bit long to me...

Definitely could cone back to bite us but we had to give the captain a nice contract. Our window is probably only the first half of his deal. So if we don’t win the cup it’s gonna look bad

Taylor Hall to the Coyotes for prospects and picks. Pretty bummed to see him go, but I understand his reluctance to re-sign with the Devils considering what a mess this season has been. I officially hate sports right now.

@Mark Antony

What are your feelings on Laviolette? I would love for the Devils to swoop him up. I’m sure some would say he’s underperformed with how much talent you guys have, but he’s taken 3 different franchises to a Cup finals, and I’ve always thought of him as a pretty good coach.

I think he is a great coach. Our team reached highs we never had before. His system definitely stopped working with our set of players. It just got stale or the players stopped buying in idk he has seemed to have a shelf life of 3/4 years at every team he’s coached. I think he’d be a good pick up for the devils for sure.

@Nictarion we hired yalls previous coach. Our fan base seems pretty lukewarm on the hire to say the least

I was never a fan tbh. His lineup choices used to drive me nuts. He’s big on playing 4th line plugs and “high compete” guys over some of the younger more skilled players. If it wasn’t for Taylor Hall’s MVP season we would have never made the playoffs once under Hynes.

Devils fired Ray Shero. :o

I wonder how this will impact a Palmieri trade...

There’s rumors going around that could have been part of it. Not sure which side Shero was supposedly on, or even if I believe it, but trading Palmieri wouldn’t be a popular move. With Palmieri not playing tonight (supposedly injured after blocking a shot last night) the timing is kind of curious.

Battle of Alberta is back. This one looks like it got pretty crazy. Seems like Matthew Tkachuk is starting to give Tom Wilson and Brad Marchand a run for their money as most hated player in the NHL.

^Yeah, that was pretty scary. 

Blake Coleman to TB. He’s been one of my favorite Devils the last couple years, but we got a great return for him.
