TropicalFruitGirl26 Posted October 7, 2017 Share Posted October 7, 2017 Everything New Jersey Devils during their '17-'18 campaign. @MadDevil I will be watching this team a little closer than normal this year for two reasons: 1-- I have invested in a few Devils players for my fantasy hockey teams this year (Adam Henrique, Taylor Hall, and Cory Schneider). In seasons past, I have steered clear of NJ players. 2-- I really do think this team has a shot at a post season berth. I realize fans such as yourself know very well the defense still needs lots of work, but I think they got the forwards headed in the right direction and the defense may not have to be great in the Metro this year...but just do enough, while Schneider does his usual outstanding job in net. Nico Hischier (above) looks like he belongs in the NHL and there are some other players I never heard of, but look damned good out there (at least in the first game against Colorado), and I am talking about Will Butcher and Jesper Bratt. I think both the Rangers and Caps may have taken steps backwards in the Metro, the Isles are the Isles, the Flyers and Canes will be scrambling themselves to try and make the post season (IMO they have no better shot at the post season than NJ does...probably all three teams on par with each other in that regard), so that leaves Pittsburgh as the only 'complete' and close to a lock in the Metro to make the post season. I think that is good news for the Devils as things look like they could have opened up for them. Now they gotta do their part. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
