  1. I teach a class on Tuesday and Thursday nights, so I'm not making it to the next bunch of games (and since I teach, I can't particularly afford the weekend games coming up either...). If anyone would be so kind as to pick me up a retro night poster in the coming days (and perhaps a Hockey Fights Cancer night one as well), I would gladly pay you back and pay for shipping if we're not able to exchange in person.
  2. First game post-bye week and the Devils are five points back of the second wild card slot (honestly I expected worse, not playing for a week, but the standings broke somewhat well). Schneider in net, Moore back from his concussion, and Taylor Hall bobblehead night. If this game could mirror my first ever Devils game (5-0 vs Sharks in 1993) that'd be swell. (As an aside...if anyone gets an extra or doesn't want theirs or goes with a Sharks fan who doesn't want a likeness if Taylor Hall in their home, do hit me up. Won't be going & tue is the first bobblehead game I'll have missed since they started doing em again.) Let's go Devils!
  3. Did you happen to wind up with extras? I couldn't go but love that poster.
  4. I don't know, I like the text only one sometimes. I feel like tonight's works. Wasn't a fan of the Oilers one. Looking forward to the ones Anthony (the guy from Columbus) actually does, I know he's got both Columbus games in March. Feels like he's only done three or four so far, and he said he's doing 13-14, so a bunch of his are still to come.
  5. I honestly believe it was a combo of this thinking and the belief that he'd somehow get out from under the punishment anyway (which, as some have mentioned, he sort of did) that resulted in us keeping the 29th pick. And I believe that it was some level of hubris that resulted in that pick being Matteau (though I vaguely remember thinking Matteau was a stretch, I look at the draft now in the late first/early second rounds and really all we missed out on there was Tanner Pearson a pick later, assuming we weren't picking a goalie like Stolarz that high).
  6. oh god I miss the Doctor Murray Seltzer announcements. I wanted badly to believe that the man somehow got a doctorate in goal judging.
  7. I've actually worn one of those before. My sports marketing teacher as an undergrad used to be an exec with the Devils back in the 80s - left in like 94, right before the Cup. Wore the ring to class on the first day. It's really neat.
  8. I don't entirely see what about that jersey can be "modernized" well outside of the logo - has a shade of red been discovered in the last 25 years? If the logo is likely to stay the same, then I feel like "modernizing" the jersey is going to entail adding pointless stuff to it. That said, a shoulder patch in the shape of NJ I guess would be kind of neat.
  9. I had free lower level tickets for tonight, and couldn't afford the train tickets in. Rather, I could have, but not eating later in the week didn't seem worth what they've been putting out on the ice to deal with that. Disappointed, though - they were good seats. If anyone's in an upper level and wants to go down, section 17 row 17 seats 8 & 9 are empty for the night.
  10. Schneider in net. Still no Greene. Bennett back in for Gazdic. Let's go Devils.
  11. I imagine they'll do the rest of that end of the arena (six more panels), then maybe above the 200s. Sure looks like it's meant to be permanent based on SH's photos (great shots btw).
  12. Home whites and that patch? God I wish I could go. i remember that signing at Menlo Mall. I too never got in. If I recall correctly, the Cup was also at the Sears in Woodbridge Mall that summer at some point as well. I think we got in to that and got a picture of (not with) the Cup. Can't remember what the deal was, I assume my mom didn't want to wait in line or something. Edit: And by "I wish I could go" I have decided that fvck it, I am going. See some of ya there.
  13. Game is NHL.tv's free game of the week for those of you outside of the blackout area. Zajac back in, Gazdic out, Schneider in net again after pitching a shutout last night. Let's go Devils
  14. No worries. It wouldn't even be quite so impossible now if the Metro didn't suddenly become the Thunderdome. Hard to tread water when the top five teams in the division go on 7, 10, 13 game winning streaks. Can honestly say I didn't expect that Columbus would still not have lost in between that first post and now.
  15. Kinkaid in net, Zacha out, Josefson in if he's cleared. All per Gross.
