    Grabner with only 5 points since the trade, guess he was only worth a 2nd round pick afterall

    Didn't realize he was that bad for Kinkaid to get the nod.

    Actually just looked over the stats, Kinkaid had a hell of a season. He was pacing for 40 wins if he started 60 games.

    Kinda makes me a little sad, too. He had 1.75 excellent seasons with us.

    He'll have more excellent seasons with us. I'm convinced he's signing here in the off-season.

    This thought crossed my mind this morning after reading Vodka's post as well.
    If AV ends up coaching an NHL team next season, I wonder if he'd want to go after Grabner.

    The Devils need to pick TB's first defensive pairing because Girardi is not like he was with us in New York. They also need to match up against the Lightning's second line since NJ's defense has some major work to do

    NJ's problems were on the 2nd defensive pairing (Moore, and Mueller) and Hall was too busy covering the Lightning forwards for the terrible defensemen. TB was picking on Hisicher because he's a small forward. They need to exert some muscle, especially on the Boyle Line (very physical line)
    For the Devils, pick on the first d-line paring for TB and bring a heavy forecheck

    He will go after Grabner because he liked him after Grabby's performance with us with NYR!

    How many goal-less games do I have to wait before I can start making fun of Miller?

    NJ needs to win Game 2 so they can bring their momentum back home to Newark for Game #3

    The Devils have stepped up the intensity, and only held TBL to only six shots in the first period by playing the Neutral Zone Trap they perfected in the Early 2000's

    NJD 1- TBL 1 after 20 minutes of Play

    LGD!!

    Because they truly are not the same team (diff mgmt, coaches, players and style) we grew to hate and our rivalry has not really been revived, yet.

    Because he gets to see them a lot. They were a fun watch this year, Hall is very likable as our some of their other players. Plus Boyle and Grabs.

    Because they are the underdogs, they just squeaked in, they are rebuilding the right way and they are getting early dividends. They are not hard to root for, not unlikable.

    One day we'll hate the Devs again. I need a good reason to hate someone or a group of someones. We don't have one yet.

    Basically they are not the devils. They are currently the Taylor Halls. That is how I thought about it this year.

    Hey, I picked and am rooting for the Jets, since Oct. That is weirder.

    Sidenote: The Taylor Halls and Nate McKinnons can not win the Cup.

    You know your Hockey! As a son of a Devils fan, I am very impressed with their effort today in game 2!

    Fuck. Just bought waterfront property in Florida last week. I am officially old. I probably hated your dad in the 94.
