  2. NY Times article on Newark arena

    Where the Devils Won't Get Their Due - VINCENT M. MALLOZZI, NY Times Writer spends most of the article criticizing the move, on the grounds that the Devils fanbase isn't loyal enough to travel to games in Newark:

    318, with some Ranger fan friends. It'll be nice to see some friendly faces in the crowd...
  5. Devil of the Season

    Like people have said, I think it's a tough choice between Gomez and Elias. Gomez has probably had more of a "breakout" year, in terms of improvement over prior seasons, but it's hard to overlook the impact of Elias' return (among other factors) in this team's success - even beyond his initial impact, having him on that second line, and thus having 2 lines that are legitimate scoring threats, has been huge. I guess if I can't choose between them, I only have one choice. I vote for..... Klee!

  8. Love the Excuses

    And I've seen instances where the refs have let things go against other teams that would usually get called (the Atlanta debacle a few weeks back comes to mind). My point is that, over an 82 game season, those things even out.
  9. Love the Excuses

    You are correct, the Devils are the least penalized team in the league. But it's just not plausible that the NHL would allow its referees to let the Devils get away with more than other teams. The league is coming off of a lockout year, and is desperate to attract new fans. The rules of the game have been drastically altered, in order to allow for more scoring and a more wide-open game. Prior to the lockout, the Devils were (unfairly, I believe) the target of much of the "Hockey is boring" stuff. The Devils are in the bottom 1/4 of the league in attendance, both at home and on the road. Put simply, the Devils are not the darlings of the NHL (and that's an understatement) - the powers that be don't care if the Devils win, and in fact would probably be happier if they didn't. WHY, then, would the NHL just allow the Devils to get away with more than other teams? The NHL is a business, so what interest is served by allowing the Devils to clutch/grab/hook/whatever, when the rest of the league can't? What interest (NHL interest, that is) is served by the Devils winning unfairly? Have you considered, perhaps, that the Devils play a disciplined game and simply take fewer penalties than other teams?
