    The question is not would Ray deal Kink for Hart, the question is, who would Ray have as opening night starter?

    Hart is a top goalie prospect.

    The issue arises when you pit him against Kinkaid for comparison’s sake, to discredit the latter. The two are on opposite ends of the spectrum and have no business being in the same sentence.

    i dont know how everyone else felt about the mask and who cares its a mask right. but man o man that mask is ugly! if i need someone to tell me what the design is then thats a huge NO! you would think a team named the devils that there would be some pretty kick ass designs and stuff. none really jump out at me though.

    Easy, Kinkaid has a proven track record as a capable but mediocre NHL goalie. Hart has never played above major junior and there isn't a great track record of junior goalies becoming NHL starters in their first pro season. What criteria are you using to determine Hart is a better goalie today?

    I wasn't meaning to give you any crap, I was more so laughing out loud because I was preparing for another four pages of Lappin talk once you brought it up again.

    You are rating a player who never played in the league, bettwe theb a player who took matter into his hands when he was called up to do so, and delivered. KK was a big reason why we made that final push to secure a playoff spot last year.



    He delivered an excellent performance. How many of us thought we were cooked going into that west coast trip. KK stole the show vs Nashville. I want to rate it as one of the better performances in recent Devils History in the regular season.

    People keep calling Kinky’s mask 8-bit but all I can think of is Minecraft.

    Crazy idea if the Devils want Smith on the opening day roster, but don't want to carry eight defenseman.

    Trade Mueller and the third rounder we have from Anaheim to Philly for the third rounder we traded to Edmonton for Maroon and something else they might want to unload. Sign Nylander to offer sheet for $7.5 - $8 million AAV.

    Trade a bunch of assets so we can gamble with an offer sheet? Crazy indeed.

    It's really only one asset to get yourself in position, who pretty much stinks if you can manage to look past where he was drafted. The draft picks are worth a guy like Nylander.

    Mueller doesn't stink, and I see no reason to trade him at a loss to chase magic beans.

    a player has to actually sign an offer sheet. Not sure why Nylander would sign here over Toronto.

    Oooh. Those are the D lines I was hoping to try out at some point in the pre-season +/- Santini over Lovejoy. Unfortunately, they're probably going to get wrecked against 'Peg.

    I'm not even surprised, people are talking up Ty Smith as if he should already slot in as LD1 and Greene should be waived. This board is bananalands 80% if the time.

    Might be a sign that Smith is going back to Spokane. Sad, I’d love to see him get at least 9 games. On the bright side, no Gryba.

    That top 6 is nice and I'm pumped to see Wood back in the lineup.

    Defense is whatever. Butcher and Lovejoy were pretty good last year, but I'd really like to see Butcher get more responsibility.
