The Devils are an unstoppable wagon at the moment. They're on a 13-game heater. Just 2 points behind Boston for the best record in the league. Bratt, Hischier and Hughes are all operating at over a ppg so far this season. And when you've got guys like Tomas Tatar catching and then burying their own rebounds, you know that everything is just going your way. They've been shit kicking some teams by 3-4 goals. They've also been finding ways to win tight 1-goal games. Everything about this Devils team seems to be working. It looks like they'll be one of the most dangerous teams in the league all season long, and a brutal team to go up against in the playoffs.
Listen. Keith Yandle knows a thing or two about a thing or two when it comes to hockey. The man was a 3x all-star. He ended his career as the NHL's all-time Iron Man record holder after playing in 989 consecutive games. He's played in over 1,000 games in his career and put up 619 career points. That's more games played and points than if you combined all of Jesper Bratt, Nico Hischier and Jack Hughes' numbers.
So yeah. I'm gonna go ahead and trust the opinion of Yands more than some dumbass named Tony in Newark who was screaming for the Devils to fire Lindy Ruff just a month ago. If Yands doesn't think the Devils are even going to make the playoffs, then guess what? The Devils ain't making the playoffs. Especially since New Jersey has already received the kiss of death.
Honestly it's a really nice shirt, one that you should most certainly purchase if you're a Devils fan. I just hope it has the same level of mush the Sabres wagons shirts had in Buffalo. Speaking of awesome Devils gear you should buy, this shirt is extra spicy.
And I agree. The future is certainly bright in New Jersey. But let's not forget that just a few short years ago the Flyers missed the playoffs after going on a 10-game win streak during the 2016-17 season. If Yands is starting the "Devils are frauds" movement, then I'll happily jump in right along with him.
13 games in a row is insane though and I'm terrified this team is finally legit after years of being offseason champions.
