devils fan for almost 30 years watched your game last night and thought I'd give you a little insight into what you have in Nick Palmieri

I will tell you J Lemaire loved this kid last year and as you know JL usually has little or no faith in rookies

When asked after one presser why Palmieri was the only rookie seeing significant icetime on a top line
JL responded "because he does not play like a rookie"

This kid will work hard every game has an extrmely hard shot that he gets off quick and most importantly will provide traffic in front of the net

He has very good hockey IQ as I'm sure you have seen already and will play in the traffic areas

Last year 5 of his 9 goals were game winning or game tying in only 43 games

I have seen all the NJ power forwards come and go down the years and IMO this kid will be a gem

I hated this trade but Lou has done it before and will do it again trading away special players

Have not liked what I have seen
in MZ so far hope he gets better
