Personally, I'd like to see the team take on a more grittier approach. Zach was an extremely hard worker and that set a nice tone for the group, but a little bit more nastiness would be welcomed. Not saying to go all Flyers mode, but to just have some more grit. The more of a pain in the ass the team is to play against, the better. The aggressive forecheck is in place. Now I want to see them even be harder to play against.

Yeah, and **** that guy lol
Of course it hurts, but we've survived a lot worse.
If the Devils could still put up 100pt seasons and make the playoffs after losing Daneyko, Stevens, Nieds and Rafalski all within a few seasons of each other, I'm pretty sure they can do anything.

As for grittiness, it looks like Lou, Conte & Co. are on board. They seemed to be drafting a lineup of Zubruses and Clarksons... all of which I'm fine with.

Carter, Bernier, Sal, Clarkson, Zubrus will all go to war for the team, regardless.
And lil gio should take a few hearty helpings of spinach a day so he can keep steamrolling the opposition with those hits

Please tell them he's just a guy. Not worth it. Besides, they'll get wrinkles if they cry.

I haven't been able to post all day, and I am very late to the party.

But this is the only thread I see fit. My anger has simmered down some.

All I can say is **** you Zach, I hope you never see a winning season.

He did what Khabibulin did to the Bolts, and it feels like betrayal and I hate that. In sports where a million here or there shouldn't be the issue, and everyone supposedly wants to win, he showed he wasn't loyal.

I love players who are loyal to the team that drafted them, developed them, and brought them so much like the Devils did for Parise.

Now he cowers away to Minny.

**** him and the Wild, thanks for turning your back on us Zach, stay classy.

Kovy actually wanted to be here. He signed his career away to play with us. Don't know if he betrayed Atlanta or not, and was deceitful. He actually straight up turned down their offer which was as good or better than ours though. No beating around the bush I don't think. Rhodes would know better.

I'm glad I could laugh at the ''Kovy cost us Zach'' crap now. Some people actually thought this team would be better with Zach, and no Kovy than it would be Kovy, and no Zach.

They were able to trade him before the deadline, that tells you all you need to know about that. He turned down more money from Atlanta to play on a winner. Zach turned down winners to play for more money.

He didn't even say how it was an honor to be a Captain. More will come out during the season about this twisted plot with Suter. Puppet master J.P
