They're going after Parise and/or Suter. I don't like it.

1 really good year falling short doesn't make up for how many years of complete ineptness ? The team should have been in a bigger rebuild mode long ago. After the Carolina debacle and Lou's refusal to bring in any offensive talent to help the blue line sooner it was time to rebuild then for sure and I even felt it could have come a year or two before that.

You sir are an idiot to assume that. I am a Devils fan since 1984 or 1985. It is hard to remember when I came on cuz I was so young but I am definitely a fan of the team.

The argument sounds familiar, I'm pretty sure this is Devilzzz with yet another account.

I'm really scratching my head when reading certain posts from certain posters, saying that Pittsburgh is making all kinds of room to possibly sign Suter or Parise, wich scares almost everyone, but when throwing out the same idea Shero is doing for our team, those same posters get all defensive and talk about team bonding being above everything else.

I love this passive aggressiveness. If you mean me, say me, not "certain posters".

I don't think Shero is smart to be changing his team wholesale here before he knows that he can get Suter or Parise, but he is at least moving players that don't fit into his plans, instead of moving core guys like you wanted to do by moving Parise.

Stefan Matteau is going to be a good player once he develops but the guy I really like that we took was Alex Kerfoot in 51 GP Kerfoot had 25 goals 44 assists for 69 points. This kid can score goals and put up points in 2010-11 Kerfoot had 38 goals 72assists for 108 points.

And yet when we turn over half our roster and almost our entire d-core in a year certain posters don't think we've done anything to change the team.

Brian Burke on not landing Jordan Staal: "We didn't have a brother named Staal which was part of the problem."

i really need to laugh at burke for this...i guess it's not easy running a team without another brother...like he's done in vancouver and anaheim.

Whoa, a trade that was rumoured forever finally came true.

Seems like the Flyers gave JVR away cheap though.

Stephen was a good move and I'd take Briam back in a minute.
