Entries with the tag: new jersey devils
Buried in a short article in the Edmonton Journal was this tidbit from Jim Matheson yesterday:
SCOOP DU JOUR—The New Jersey Devils will sign former Oilers captain Jason Smith this summer when he’s an unrestricted free agent. Smith started his NHL career with the Devils.
At Spector’s Hockey, Lyle observes, “That’s possible, but I think such a signing would come after GM Lou Lamoriello has addressed his lack of scoring depth at center this summer.”
Fair enough, but it still makes me wonder…
Vezina Winner vs Vezina Loser.
It’s about time Roberto won something.
This will (possibly) be a liveblog of the Vancouver—New Jersey game, depending on whether or not these two highly-capable defensive teams can avoid putting the world to sleep.
But with the Goalie vs Goalie angle, there is great promise of scintillating action. Or—at the very least—lots of over-excited television commentary obsessed with the phrase, “GREAT SAVE [insert name here]!!!!” all night long.
P.S. Steve the Devils Fan is joining me below…
