It was a playoff preview about good/bad match-ups for the Devils heading into the first round. I said that Carolina would be our worst match-up, and that's who we played, and we ended up losing to them.

Which means not only am I semi-professional journalist, but I also have a better track record than all of their employees.

I'm 100% serious by the way.
None of this surprises me. I know someone who wrote an offseason gameplan for the Ducks because they just needed more writers

thats nothing. I sat on my computer waiting for the Ryder news to become official. I got bored and went to speak to my brother for like 5 minutes and I came back to a confirmed with link thread and loads of replies

Jagr is really slow now, Ryder is not a good skater either.

We still need a burner like Raymond or Grabrovski.

Jagr seems like a giving. It is possible the Devils just want to announce the news on Monday for PR reasons. As for Brunner I think it would make much more sense to sign Grabovski.

Wish list would be to sign Jagr and Grabovski and then trade Volchenkov + Loki for picks.

Why would you trade Loktionov? He's one of the few young forwards we have that are any good.

Trading Loktionov would be really, really dumb. The Devils were the highest bidder at a 5th rounder last year. What would be the point of trading him for that? I honestly wouldn't be surprised if Loktionov started the season in Albany because he's not waiver eligible and called up at a later date.

Hey all. So word around town here is Jagr and Brunner both to NJ. Is this true? When I ask that, I mean in the sense of is this the rumor everyone else is hearing as well?

If so, I feel getting Jagr and Brunner would possibly make NJ a better team than before Kovy left. Obviously it still hurts, but I like the roster if this happens.

Or maybe even Grabo for his speed. But then again look how that turned out for D'ago

Where did all this Jagr talk come from?

And I'm worried this will scare away Brunner, as he might not make top-6. I was excited for Brunner too.

He was taking a tour of the Rock yesterday and it just makes sense.

Either Brunner is signing here or going back to Switzerland. I highly doubt a team has seriously pursued him since TG's report and we haven't heard of it.

Ryder said he has played LW and can if needed

Jagr has always been slow. He doesn't rely on his speed so it doesn't matter that much.

I would love Grabovski here but I don't see it happening if the Jagr thing works out. Raymond is pretty much useless except for his speed so I don't see the point of getting him.

The more I think about it, the more I think Loktionov will be in Albany to start the season.

I am so excited now. Completely forgot we had Clowe.

If we get both Jagr and Brunner, I am pleased for the season. Playoffs is a definite I feel. (Based off of roster)

It does make sense, but im not sure. He was good last year . Unless Josefson outplays him then he will be here

It's one or the other. I can't see Lou bringing in more than five new faces in one off season.

If our roster could look:

Ryder - Zajac - Brunner
Elias - Henrique - Jagr
Zubrus - Loki/JJ - Clowe
Carter - Gionta - Bernier

I would be ecstatic. Basically three second lines and one of the best depth chemistry lines in the league. Paired with solid d, and now possibly the best goaltending duo in the league.

WHO NEEDS KOVALCHUK.

Actually I may have miscalculated. I don't think Loktionov is waiver exempt.
