He looks the best he has as a Devil from my standpoint. He figured out it was mental which we all knew, except him. Thank you Kinkaid.

I know not you. Was adding on to your WTF reaction.

That spin around on Hickey was great.

Give Speers, Lappin, Q, McLeod, and Yakovlev another look. Jettison the rest.

Eventually:

Hall Hischier Bratt
Johansson Zacha Palmieri
Quenneville Zajac McLeod/Speers
Coleman Boyle Noesen
Lappin

If McLeod and Speers can't hang then move Noesen and Lappin up + have Stafford as the scrub.

I like that except I'd rather Lappin in there over Boyle. He just doesn't bring much but coaches pet.

I’d keep Seney around a bit longer too.

Apparently Lappin has been practicing on the Hischier line

Like I was saying last night, Colton White can really skate. Nice to see him at 61% CF. Offense needs to start coming, but he only just turned 21 in May and nine points in 47 games isn’t awful for a rookie AHL dman.

Butcher played well too I thought. Nice to see him get heavy minutes and PK time. Even Gryba was alright. He's fine as a 7/8.

Sissons was the extra man? I wanted him to play.

Watching some playback - I think Kinkaid should have another great/good enough season (Thank God.)

Cory looked like he could still play but, hips/groin are generally not friendly to goalies once hurt.

I thought Pietila looked good in both games he's played. He's very much a bottom sixer but he could have a breakthrough like Coleman did.

I’ve always liked his bottom 6 game. He never cheats you with hustle and a great work ethic.

I assume that he is not starting the season, so they will put him on LTIR, and let Lack backup the first few games.

Kinkaid is 29, if he's ever going to amount to anything beyond a solid backup the time is now. I'm hoping for the teams sake he can at least help us get over any mountains when some inevitably regress. Also hoping Zacha can pick up the production to augment Hall. He can't do it himself nor do we want that. Too many variables and unknowns like most seasons but here we go again. I'm not worried about the preseason losses but with a young team, a loss of confidence could give off an unwanted reality check on this team. Having MoJo back is good. We can use the experience, Maroon said he was shocked how young the team was overall. (I'll like that guy from now on probably more then if we re-signed him since he stole the puck after the playoff game loss. :danson:

I expect a season of regression this year, followed by acquisition and growth next season.

I think that the regression will be seen in Hall (back to mean), Hischier (impact of Hall), Bratt (in line with his second half last season), Butcher (tougher assignments), Wood (slow start and near his peak unless he learns to think the game better). I think that we'll see continued suckiness from Severson and Lovejoy. I think we'll see an offset to some of the suckiness due to improvement from Palmieri and Johansson on offence leading to a stronger season by Zacha. I also think that Greene will have a small comeback this season (though not all the way back to his old form). And Mueller and Santini will probably also show some growth.

At the end of the day, I think the Devils will just fail to miss the playoffs with improvements by other teams around them, most notably the Panthers.

I think that Shero is going to use this to improve the team for the following season by acquiring some right wing depth if it doesn't come from the young kids. I also think he'll fill in some of the weakness on defence as Lovejoy is jettisoned for Ty Smith and/or another young defenceman. And then continue that the following season with Greene's contract coming to an end.

The team is building in the right direction, but there are still some serious flaws to fill if they want to compete for the Cup. I hope that Shero can continue building the team, but I'm not sure they have the assets to build a top contender based on the ages of the players that are expected to carry the team to competitiveness.

Agreed on everything except Hischier. Keep in mind only six of his points came on the powerplay last year so he’s due for an increase there as he’ll likely be on PP1. I think now that he’s acclimated to the organization and life in the NHL we’ll see a tick up in his numbers, 6-8 points maybe.

I just think his 5v5 numbers will decrease because of playing with Hall and Hall's regression. If he can offset it with PP numbers, he might end up about the same as last season, but I think they'll be lower by a little on the whole. But who knows.
