Schneider is going to be here unless they buy him out which I don't see happening.

Good news: McLeod is back tonight
Bad news: Jacobs, Quenneville and Sharangovich got hurt last game.
Damn, this team is so unlucky with injuries.
I blame the coaching
Dammit Sarge, what are you doing down there?
gignac 2 points through 2 periods
Where the hell did Cormier come from. There’s no way this guy is any good, is there?
Edit: I know his story, failed miserably in getting the sarcasm through
He is a Devils draft pick who underwhelmed in juniors
14 points in his last 11 games including this one. Nice to see!
Cormier wins again, 2-1
Without JQ, Sharongovich, Rooney, Pietila, Tangradi
I know who he is and his history. I’m asking if he can be for real.
Your question sounds like you didn't know that. I doubt anyone knows and the answer is 'probably not'. But it's been a nice two weeks for him.
Baby it is cold outside....

ACL looks fine, he can fly again. Fastest skater on the team.
Obviously this remains to be seen, but it's just incredible that he's been able to jump in and perform so well, especially with the team in front of him.
This team has been hit so hard with injuries, suspensions, call-ups, and everything else along the way. This current lineup they're icing every night HAS to be one of the worst I've seen in a long time because of all those things. But somehow they keep finding ways to win, and lately because of Cormier. I would love to see what he would be like for a full season with a solid team in front of him.
If nothing else, he's been a great story for all of us to root for down here in an otherwise lost season. Hopefully he can keep it up.

Evan Cormier Once Again Keeps BDevils Rolling in 2-1 Victory Over Phantoms
Ever since he was drafed there his numbers improved each of the 2 seasons after we picked him while playing on a not so good team.
I don't think he underwhelmed so I was surprised he wasn't offered a deal over the summer. Banking on Johnson was odd to me.
Was a Devils draft pick who played on some god awful teams in junior but seemed to always get high praise every once in a while despite it.
Devils seemingly chose to sign Cam Johnson (probably because it was a one year deal given our goaltending situation) versus offering Cormier his ELC this summer.
Again, knew who he was and his story, failed miserably in conveying that.
The rise of Gignac is great to see.
2019-01-12 Cam Johnson (G) Binghamton ADD Returned on loan from New Jersey (NHL)
Gignac has been killing it lately, why on earth would they scratch him? I saw that both Shero & Fletcher are at the game tonight along with a bunch of scouts, I can't imagine Gignac is hurt if he was projected to be line-up until the last second?
Wonder if there's a trade afoot? There's no way he's out of the lineup for performance reasons.
That tweet was about last night's game. Most likely reason for him being scratched is injury - less likely, but also possible, is that he's getting called up and the Devils don't want him potentially playing 4 games in 5 nights.
Devils broadcaster Rob Lippolis says his guess is Gignac was shaken up after blocking a shot late in the game last night, though he did finish the game.
