  1. Food around the Rock

    Redds is now open! Poor timing for them but the place looks awesome.. http://www.reddsbiergarten.com/ Some articles on it: http://www.brickcitylive.com/news/andaiye/redds-biergarten-officially-opens-on-monday-heres-a-view-from-the-restaurants-soft-opening/ http://www.northjersey.com/news/business/small-business/carlstadt-s-redd-s-opens-newark-restaurant-1.1548267
  2. Per Richie Matthews, the team equipment guy:
  3. It's a slow day so I figured some good team news would be nice: https://twitter.com/darrenrovell/status/710091409643192321 Looks like they are becoming a "Presenting Sponsor" of the Devils, akin to Chase with NYR and McDonalds with LA Kings. AmeriHealth Pavilion will be renamed the "Barnabas Health Hockey House" and team practice jerseys will carry their name/logo. We've already seen Barnabas get their logo on the ice, and they were the sponsor of Brodeur Night programming on MSG.
  4. GDT: Devils vs Failures 7PM MSG+

    They should be our 3rd jersey. I'm amazed that some fans think it should only be worn once a year.
  5. Are you renewing for the 16-17 season?

    Yeah I mean obviously the STH price is below that face value you're seeing, but those Goal Bar seats are also somewhat unique. We talk a lot about them on HF, and I know someone familiar with the deal the Devils have with the broker selling those seats. I'll just say that the broker has those Goal Bar seats, and a lot of others around the arena, for a fraction of STH cost (along with stipulations that help the Devils out). We speculate it's a way for the Devils to undercut their own face value in order to get more fans to games who normally would balk at face value, while also attempting to control the secondary market since this broker has like 2k - 2.5k seats spread across nearly every section of the arena. But the Goal Bar seats are typically their best deal and they own a ton of them after the Devils relocated most of the Goal Bar STH. For anyone looking to get these deals, here's the source: http://www.dreamtix.com/New-Jersey-Devils-Tickets You'll see all of those exact seats are typically listed on StubHub. I'd compare the two since buying directly from DreamTix may save you some money on fees.
  6. Are you renewing for the 16-17 season?

    I renewed for next season, but may have to drop to 1 seat after this year so I can actually add to my savings lol.. Yeah I mean if you mainly want to go to weekday games, don't care too much to be at rivalry games, don't expect the team to make the playoffs, and don't care about some of the ancillary benefits/events of being an STH, then yes StubHub is still the best option and there's really no way the team can make a plan for those types of fans. That said, the StubHub Plan folks definitely got creamed over the holiday break as resale prices were well above STH prices. STH also got one hell of a deal for Marty Night, including the ability to buy extras. That obviously won't be the case next year unless Elias retires. You're definitely going the smarter route for young guys like us. I do sometimes think about all of the money I drop year after year Those Goal Bar seats you've been getting are the best deal in the arena. The Devils sold a bunch to broker DeamTix, and they've basically been dumping them on StubHub for most games.
  7. Revitalization Around The Rock

    Triangle Park appears to have passed the remaining hurdle and is tentatively set for a summer 2018 opening http://www.nj.com/essex/index.ssf/2016/01/parking_to_the_port_5_things_we_learned_at_barakas.html
  8. GDT: Montreal Canadiens @ New Jersey Devils

    Gelinas just needs more ice time to develop and get experience, brah
  9. Food around the Rock

    And for anyone who hasn't been to Military Park since the renovation, it's really nice!!
  10. The arena is already fantastic and will be the home for, if not the rest of, our entire lives. But JVB was a couple years too soon of a few things: 1) Economy collapse. Ouch, lots of debt of the arena. But maybe it took a bubble to even get us a new building 2) Restaurant should be where the Goal Bar is and visa versa. A no-brainer here. Just terrible planning 3) Clubs on side that players enter. Why not reward your highest paying clients with this? 4) TV technology boom. Concourse screens and scoreboard could be so much cooler but things have gotten exponentially better since the arena was built. Oh well It's all good. The Rock is world class, and will be for a while. Owners are spending to make some necessary improvements and its awesome. Just wish they had been the ones to build the arena, but it is what it is and JVB should forever be applauded for putting in the blood, sweat, and tears it took to even get PruCenter. If these changes help us more, all power to them!

    Burg is set to open soon-ish: http://www.nj.com/food/index.ssf/2015/10/post_6.html Also to note: - They'll have 8 rotating "wine taps" Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/burgnj
  12. Changes Coming to Devils MSG Broadcasts

    Really excited for the locker room camera footage. And we have a cool locker room too, why not show it off? Just really nice to see us have modern things for a change.
  13. Devils 2014-2015 Off Season Thread

    Gelinas switching to #24. Sal's definitely retiring
  14. Devils 2014-2015 Off Season Thread

    I'm in favor, if that's how Ray wants to run his organization. The whole number thing was a Lou rule, but Lou is gone now to another team, so I see no reason to keep the policy. I'm sure players didn't totally care about it either way, but I'm also sure they would prefer whatever number they want.
  15. Zubrus to be bought out.

    msweet is probably hoping he doesn't move out of the area
