I always point to game 6 in 2000 as a perfect example......Arnott may have scored the gwg but how about that friggen dumb penalty he took earlier in OT that could have cost us? Not many remember that, but they'll remember the goal

Well I said possibly. I'm hard on Kovy when he deserves it. Everyone sees things differently. It was mostly just a compliment on your sense of humor though.

Eklund just reads HF and posts what he reads as "insider rumors." I don't believe a word of what he says, no matter how likely the situation he's reporting on.

So what does the lineup look like right now?

Let's say that Lou signs Sykora and that's it...

Kovalchuk-Zajac-Zubrus
Elias-Henrique-Sykora
Tedenby-Josefson-Clarkson
Bernier-Carter-Gionta

Fayne-Greene
Salvador-Zidlicky
Volchenkov-Tallinder
Larsson

Where do you think that we finish with that roster?

I think the pass Elias made was more impressive.

The one where he cross checked a Star in the face? I remember it. I also remember him picking Nieuwendyk up off a faceoff and dropping him right on his back. He'd probably get suspended for both of those these days.

Semin and Kovy on the PP has the potential to be deadly.

"Nearly the same" to "better than" last year. Having a capable bottom 6 right off the bat is a pretty big step ahead of where we were in September of 2011. Plus Henrique, Josefson, Fayne, and Larsson should be trending upwards, and there won't be nearly as long of an adjustment period with a bunch of new coaches and/or players coming in.

Well, at least we won't be *****ing about how Kovalchuk and Parise don't work on the same line anymore.

I agree with Jimmy... let's not jump to conclusions that kovy and semin will be a deadly line

Semin you are looking at probably around 25 goals and 60-70 points.

This was part of the problem in the Final. It cost the Devils game 3 for sure.

Speaking of awful power plays, can someone tell me what Oates did in his tenure here to suggest he's ready for a head coaching job?
