Discussion in 'New Jersey Devils' started by Emperoreddy, Nov 8, 2013.
EDM tank expected to end some time in 2070's
Hemsky's locker has been cleaned out
No report of trade.... Why ??? Maybe the team is currently playing
Oilers scouts were only at Rags games to check out the NEW TRANSFORMED GARDEN!
Have you guys heard they transformed the garden BTW?
I brought up the Hemsky possibility a few days ago. Makes too much sense. He's Czech and great friends with Jagr. Jagr lobbied for him to get on the Czech national team and insisted Hemsky play on his line.
I think it's something to look out for certainly. I imagine Fayne would have to be involved considering that it's odd for the Devils to push a young player like they are doing with Gelly tonight.
I think a future 40g scorer is exactly what Zajac needs.
I could see the Rags getting Hemsky.
Hope they trade away Zuccerello so I can root for him.
Zucc, like Gaborik, is someone I wish wasnt on the Rangers so I could hope for a trade haha
Jets lead Preds 4-0 after the 1st. ooft
Thinking Hemsky may head to Tampa. Could look good on a line with Malone and Filppula.
If Hemsky is coming here, I hope it isn't for much.
Well Edmonton plays at 1pm today (in Philly lol) so we'll find out soon enough. I would love to get Hemsky.
The Devils have traded Mark Fayne to the Edmonton Oilers for Hemsky. E5
Hemsky would be awesome for this team. He'd be another Elias in terms of creativity and dictating the pace of play, something this team really needs.
Hemsky is a scratch today
Gene Principe @GenePrincipe 1m
At this point Ales Hemsky is on the official game sheet and has been announced as in the Oilers starting lineup. Will update if it changes
Just an aside... anyone see Alexander Urbom's ridiculous slapper the other night vs NYI? We missed out on that kid. What a goal.
It's okay we've got Peter Harrold... **** me...
I would have been fine with trading Urbom for assets, since we will have a crowded blueline in the next few seasons.
BUT, to let him get go for no return was inexcusably bad by Lou.
Other GMs would be called out on that by their owners.
Question for all :
Maybe this was already discussed but you all know that the Oilers signed the Space-Cadet Bryzgalov, right?
19 other teams passed on Urbom. Owners have no idea about Urbom. He is the standard big body young defenseman with potential.
I won't be surprised if he does well in EDM.
Edmonton's defense is as bad as the Flyers was under Laviolette. Bryz will probably get torched playing behind that team too.
The difference is the EDM knows its defense is bad. The Flyers thought they only needed a better goalie and their defense was fine.
Damn. Steven Stamkos with possible broken leg/ankle ?
Tonight is the HHOF ceremony....7:30 NHL Network
Congrats to Niedermayer and Shanahan!
