maybe I missed something but why do you have KK in projected lineup but say Cory is starting?

What's the deal with Pavel Zacha? In the beginning of the season he was getting chances and not converting. Is that still the case?

Zacha is a stiff, who the devils need to cut bait with, Thank god they finally got him of the second line. Now shero needs to find a sucker to take him. Nine games ZERO points, One last gift from Lou Lamerillio wasting the sixth pick in the draft.

Zacha is a Shero pick. I hear Shero called Chiarelli and asked for a straight up trade of Zacha for McDavid.

Considering how cheap Ott is, maybe Zacha for Duchene ?

Zacha wasn't a gift from Lou Lams but the Three Stanley Cups were along with a couple decades of outstanding hockey. Are you old enough to remember what this organization was like before he got here? I am. Lou has my eternal gratitude. Maybe things ended badly, but that happens in a lot of relationships.


That said, Zacha has almost no trade value. Nobody is paying up for someone else's problems. If you want to move him for any type of return we have to find a role that works for him. Zacha has skills but he's not productive in his current role. Move him to wing? Put him on the farm? Bring him to Bratt's psychologist? Get him some action at the Palamino in Vegas? IDK. But something has to be done. Maybe dropping him to 2C will help. I'm not optimistic.

Actually lou was still team president at the time of the zacha draft, so he had a say in the pick. Lets just all admit it was another piss poor over hyped euro pick made by lou and his staff. And for the the record yes i do remember the mickey mouse organization devils, Lou was a great GM right up until the lost season, and salary cap Then letting are best players leave over money and piss poor drafting he set this team back a decade. Can anyone say they are shocked tavaras left the islanders right about the same time lou took over?

I think he's shown he is good defensively but can't generate offense against higher quality competition. Hopefully getting "easier" minutes will get him going.

Soft penalty, softer defense in front of the net.

The team you saw, was not the team we have. They came out with fire, overachieved, and then settled into the bunch of poops we have now. Schneider? What, he is winless in 50 now? You might as well play the goalie coach at this point. Schneider burned very brightly for a few years, now that’s but a long-distant memory. Zacha? Drop him in the minors, so that we can forget about him more quickly, while bringing up someone else who at least has som3 hope. And NO, I am not being hard on him. He was a goddamned 4th...time to deliver, boy. And Kenny, the “bounces” Detroit got, were [email protected]#K-UPS by the Devils....world-class pass there Butcher...WORLD-CLASS. Who tries that crap with 7 minutes left in a tie game? Shero, you suck. How long til we begin hearing rumors of Hynes having “lost the room?” I’m not sure you can tell, but I am PISSED!!!!
