    Interesting to see all these goals again. A few take aways...

    1. Nico isn’t afraid to go to the net and is really good at deflections.

    2. Nico loves the against the grain shot just above the pad and below the blocker.

    Love this kid.

    If you can get that shot just right (you're second point) it's so hard to stop. He's done well getting that shot through so far

    Saw him out and about in Hoboken with his girlfriend. Wish I had my devils shirt on.

    After watching that video two things really stand out to me.

    1.) His shot in transition is tremendous. It's very hard to shoot in stride, let alone to pick corners against the grain. If he has time and space he'll probably beat the goalie clean from the hashmarks. Great release. In 2-on-1 situations I'd like to see him shoot more often than not, let the other guy be the decoy because he can flat out beat goalies.

    2.) For a physically undersized guy he sure does score a lot of goals from within 5 feet of the net. I love that he is willing to pay the price and get some dirty goals. He has some very nice hand-eye coordination as well, he reminds me a bit of Gionta in that regard.

    I thought about it, but figured best to just not bug him. Easy to forget he is only 19.

    Yeah, that's understandable. He might not get recognized too much yet though. It's always a grey area: will they enjoy the recognition and appreciation? Or do they just want to be left alone?

    A quick "Hey Nico, big Devils fan, keep up the good work/good luck" and then keep walking is fine and doesn't intrude into a player's day.

    He was having a quiet night with the lady. It was cool to see him out and about though.

    Nah, I'm sure he would have loved it, especially with the playoffs upon us.

    I mean I'm doubting the fan fare is making it hard for him to live his life.:laugh:

    Ya, it's been my experience that most Devils players appreciate the recognition. They probably don't get overwhelmed like players in hockey-mad cities like Toronto or Montreal (or even Edmonton as Hall's stated).

    how did you guys think he looked.... after watching him for years, this was the first time I saw him look overwhelmed. cross check to back then looking like he was going to collapse in the bench
