  1. Normally, I'd put an off topic post in another sub, but I feel it is important enough to post here. As the holidays arrive, please, look out for one another, including your friends and family. This time of year is rough for some as they don't always feel included or just feel like they aren't valuable to anyone. I bring this up because about 24 hours ago, I found out a coworker whom I looked up to and went to often for advice took his life in his home, leaving behind a family. He tragically becomes the fourth person I know this year to take their own life. I had no clue. He was always funny, laughing, telling stories and never gave any indication that something was wrong. I'm writing this to remind everyone that there is always another answer. There is always someone out there who is 100% willing to talk, about anything, if you're feeling awful and like there is now help. I'm not looking for sympathy, I just HATE feeling like I'm a bystander, so if you're having problems or whatever, direct message me here, find me on twitter [its the same as my handle here] or any other way and I'll be there to help. Below are contact information for groups of people who are also willing to help and are just an anonymous phone call away. National Suicide Prevention Hotline: 1-800-273-8255 [This is also the recommended number for Veterans' Suicide Prevention] In Canada each province has their own, but here is a link to find the one you may live in http://thelifelinecanada.ca/help/call/ Please please please look out for one another, if anything, we all have the thread of being Devils' fans in common. Never know, that small bond could end up being the ice breaker that could save someones live. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and any other holidays being celebrated this time of year! All the best & Let's go Devils, Jag

  5. I gotta admit...spending so much time with my little girl, watching these games, seeing my daughter catching on to the nuances of hockey (and LIKING it)...that's made it a lot easier to keep tuning in. She can't wait to watch the Devils with me. I love every minute of it. Nice Palms!

  11. Pretty sure the above is how one defines "fair weather fan". You can jump ship to any other team that you want, but news flash: EVERY team climbs into the losing barrel at some point. The Rangers, the Penguins, the Red Wings (once called the Dead Things during one of their extended droughts several years ago)...they've all been there. No one contends for a cup every single season of their existence. There's teams that never even have "all the years of contending for a Cup"...and a number of franchises have won NONE. I'll admit that this team is a brutal watch right now...and any improvement will have to come with primarily who's on the team, because there's no bevy of prospects ready to come up to excite. If this team is at least going to become a non-eyesore again, it will have start with Cory/KK, and work its way out. I don't think this team is good and never really did, but I don't think they should be this bad either...certainly not 3-10-4 bad over a 17-game stretch, even with a rough schedule.

  13. There were quite a few shots being passed around. It was after a Devils loss to Tampa Bay, where the referee blew a really big call at a really tough spot. Tampa scored on the power play that ensued, with a minute or so to go if I remember correctly. Dano pointed out the referee at the bar to me, and I jokingly "flipped him off" (with a huge grin and in a very non-menacing way). He smiled and shook his head. This was during the season that the Devils had a little run towards the end of the year and needed a good Florida trip to make the playoffs, but got blown out by Florida and lost a close one the next morning. I also bought Steve Cangiolosi a shot. He politely declined, and offered to pay for it. Matt Laughlin took a selfie of me, my now-wife, him and Dano. A few minutes later I had Kevin Clarke call my buddy at home and yell into the phone "DOCTOR MURRAY SELTZER", an inside joke. Kevin Clarke is a great guy, for those who haven't met him

  15. In the world of NBC, who invented this game, there are 7 teams that exist (PHI, NYR, DET, CHI, PIT, WAS, BOS). The other 23 (soon to be 24) teams exist only insofar as they provide competition to the NBC 7. I'm convinced at this point that if they couldn't pick one of those seven every year, they'd rather not even have the game. I'm shocked they had St. Louis this year. At least they were new.

  16. Devils are 1-0-0 in their last 1. Project that over the rest of the season, and into the playoffs, and we are mathematically guaranteed to WIN THE STANLEY CUP. I am so proud of this team.

  18. Hell yeah boys!!!! Team is 2-0 in my newly acquired Stevens jersey...just saying, it's obviously got supernatural powers. He can blur in all he wants if he contributes two points a game.

  19. You'd think after playing hockey his entire life his mind would have caught up to his feet. I don't care though, he's having a great game. Great excitement after his fight, and total effort resulting in a goal. Good game for #44.

  26. I'm all for optimism, and that's how I try to roll...but this team just looks too overmatched and overwhelmed too often to feel like anything magical is coming...there's just been so little progress, and that's all I wanted to see...I actually expected the Devils to put up less points than last season from the get-go, but I thought they were going to become a more compelling product, with reasons to say "Yep, we're going the right way." Sure, the record's not awful over the last nine, but that was to be expected with the schedule easing up. But no matter how you slice it, when you consider that this team has all of four regulation wins in their last 29 games...FOUR!...and only nine on the season...that's just another reminder of how shaky this team is. For the first time, I'm actually very open to the Devils moving Schneider in the near future (though I doubt it will happen anytime soon). The guy can't win here...if he has a bad month or two, the team can't overcome it...when he plays well and helps keeps his teams in games with little to no margin for error, they can't score enough to support him...every iffy goal gets blown up as a result. November and December were bad months for him, goes without saying, but for the most of his time as a Devil, he's been very good (.921 save% as a Devil, even with his .909 mark this season). And he has nothing to show for it (81-85-34 record here). If he was 25 or 26, I'd say keep him...but he'll be 31 in two months, and I don't see this team being able to challenge for a playoff berth for at least two more years. That will make Cory 33 or 34 by the time the Devils might be icing a decent team. It's really too bad, because he's obviously quite good a lot of the time, and an easy guy to root for. But his career is being wasted in NJ. I'd be very sorry to see him go, but he's quickly becoming an unnecessary luxury here.

  27. When Daneyko let me put on his 95 SCF ring while wasted in a Tampa Bay bar, he talked about it being the "real" first ring he won. That confused me, until now. Great stuff

  28. Bingo. Three Cups and five Finals in these jerseys. If anyone from the Devils combs message boards for fan opinions like I've heard, hear this and make sure it gets to who it needs to get to: don't touch the fvcking jerseys. No one wants you to, and it isn't necessary and I don't give a flying fvck if you feel like making more money by fixing something that isn't broken. LEAVE. THE. JERSEYS. ALONE. DO. NOT. TOUCH. THEM.

  39. Okay, they won. I hope it brings them some confidence. I hope some people can start playing better. Kinkaid was great. But boy oh boy, tonight shows the cracks in the facade. 4 players were over -10 Corsi tonight. Quincey, Moore, Smith-Pelly, Wood. None of these players should play the next game. I realize this is impossible, but they have to find a way to get these players off the team. Moore, I'm done with him. He sucks. Gamble gone wrong, he can't be here next year. Quincey is obviously gone, unfortunately they're exposing him on his off-side routinely now. Smith-Pelly just doesn't have the puck skills to be an NHL regular. And Wood, everyone's golden boy, is just a disaster all over the ice - he doesn't know where to be in the defensive zone, and his presence just makes a bad Devils breakout worse. He should be in Albany. Oh, and Gazdic shouldn't play. Put in Merrill, bring up Mozik, use Zacha (though he is also a problem) and bring someone up from Albany. Systematically the Devils weren't awful tonight but some of these players just are not playing at an NHL level.

  40. If Hynes goes right back to Cory next game he'll have completely lost me. Can't give Kinkaid enough props for this one. He was fantastic.

  43. I've shared my story here some time ago, but there was a time where I was suffering from severe depression, and all I'll say about it is that it is incredibly serious, and can be crippling and even physically painful. If you think you might have a problem, talk to someone, get help. Don't ignore it, think it will just go away on its own, or try to be "strong and silent".

  44. Peluso didn't just fight, but he also played an extremely physical game where he regularly absorbed contact to the head from things other than fists. This is on Lamoriello-Fisher-Jaffe conspiring to keep Peluso in the dark as to what was really going on. Not everyone is George Foreman...Peluso was likely one of those guys who just wasn't cut out to play hockey (for very long at least). This is information that he deserved to know.

  48. What in the actual fvck. I mean, I'm glad josefson is drawing back in if for nothing else than to play PP wall instead of henrique who might as well wear the other team's jersey out there then. But to pull zacha out and keep fvcking gazdic in there - was the example in st. louis not eye opening enough to realize that there was no "spark" from this jabroni? This season has always been about continuing the transition to a good team. Yes, Taylor Hall theoretically sped that up, but not by enough that possible pieces of the future (like zacha and bennett) sit so the likes of gazdic, DSP, and kalinin can continue to play because there is some ridiculous notion that these players "help you win tonight." honestly, i'd sit fiddler but that's not happening (room guy, vet, etc. - never mind the fact that he's getting destroyed out there). that 9-3-3 start might actually be the worst thing that happened to this team from a development standpoint. every year there are coaches decisions where someone says "my guy is sitting for someone that should be." this happened plenty last year w/ the likes of the tootoo's and farnham's and gionta's. I complained then also but there wasn't much else other than calling up guys from albany and while i disagreed with the idea that it's better for them to play in albany, i understood it. the staff is at least a little better this year. wood is staying (and getting top 6 minutes). lappin is staying (although perhaps the bloom is off that rose a bit). but this is not only not putting out the best roster for tonight...it's not the best roster for the future either. against a team like ottawa that's missing hoffman tonight and is not a strong offensive team - tonight's the night you try to get guys going. instead - double shifts and 4:00 of gazdic - why? so he can scrap with Chris fvcking Neil? i am praying that tomorrow vs NYR is the last we see of gazdic in the lineup while able bodied guys ride the bench.

  49. We quickly have gone from having reliable defenders and one solid pair to a steaming pile of dogsh!t backend. They seriously have lost any semblance of defensive prowess, have zero in zone awareness and have just given up hope. If Shero doesn't want to fire Hynes, thats fine, but whatever fvckup is in charge of the defense needs to fvcking go.
