  1. The Marty Night thread

    You are overreacting again.  The tickets are in addition to the banners they will be handing out.  Don't look to hard into the FB groups as the people there are over-dramatic and very reactionary without thinking.  When you walk in you will def be getting that banner and the ticket and more likely than not the photo-card (which I never cared for anyways). Those Doc, Chico and other nights were just honor nights and the Devils are notorious for not being consistent with those.  Hell Daneyko got his own honor night a season or two before his retirement night.  I wouldn't look into those honor nights to compare with the actual retirement nights.  The Niedermayer night was half-assed a bit and that was because JVB couldn't really afford it. I wouldn't count on regular programs.  They might have special lineup cards that they have been handing out, but I wouldn't bet on full-fledged programs.  Who knows I might be wrong though.  However keep in mind the Devils were one of the few teams to actually print programs and charge for them.  Most teams in the league switched to those lineup cards years ago and have been handing those out for free.
  2. The Marty Night thread

    Management has already confirmed the mini-banners.  The picture I could take or leave. its nothing against you, but I just find it odd/funny that there is a decent sized portion of our fans that think the worst of our owners when they haven't done anything to justify it other than not giving out tickets like free candy and changing the goal song.
  3. The Marty Night thread

    Yes they will definitely have the mini banners for everyone and most likely have the photos as well.  My question is why would you think this ownership wouldn't do it?  I mean they did give us bobble heads this year for the first time in a solid decade. i have so far seen images of the official game puck, the Marty 30 retirement number puck, a few banners, shirts and flags available for sale.  
  4. The Marty Night thread

    From what I've heard, the devils apparently have gotten wise this year and ordered a ton of the pucks, banners and other special merchandise for Marty night, so there should be a good amount available at the den on Tuesday.  Hopefully this will avoid issues of hoarding to sell for big bucks on eBay.
  5. I agree with this.  6 is the sweet spot.
  6. John Scott - Players Tribute article

    no one has taken the all star game seriously in many years.  However suddenly it became a serious matter when the dopes that voted John Scott in got a push back from the league that didn't initially want him in it for obvious reasons. i am annoyed that the bigger stars always come up with fanthom injuries the week of the game.  I think the one game suspension is a joke and should be more. still with John Scott in the game you can't call it an all star game then. 
  7. John Scott - Players Tribute article

    Funny between Facebook, Twitter, hfboards and anyplace else where you can connect to devils fans this  board is easily filled with the biggest negative nancies around. How many posts do I have to read on here from several members who have to remind everyone after ever damn win about how they are overachieving and due for a slide?  Yet I'm the miserable human being and the Debbie downer here. Do I dare look up all the posts you posted from 2013-14 and 2014-15 season where you were sh!tting all over Schneider?
  8. John Scott - Players Tribute article

    So by that logic are you saying Stephen Gionta is a bonafide NHL player rather than a player who is only playing in the NHL because of some weird crush the organization has or the lack of depth in the organization?   And for the other posters, yes the lockouts make us look like jokes to the other leagues.  However why pile on with this John Scott crap?  When does this end?  Sorry I'm not going to let the warm and fuzzies everyone felt get in the way of how embarrassing and dumb this whole ordeal is.  The whole thing about Scott being MVP was completely engineered with the fake fight to the constantly setting him up to score those goals to him being lifted on the players shoulders.  No way he wasn't going to be the MVP. If you want to get all warm and fuzzy about an underdog just rent Rudy from now on.
  9. John Scott - Players Tribute article

    He didn't vote himself in and he was a pawn, but he knew exactly why he was.  Wouldn't you feel a bit embarrassed if you only got voted to an honor as some big joke?  These fans were laughing at him all the way until that trade and suddenly it became a serious matter to these same fans.
  10. John Scott - Players Tribute article

    Which other league has its fans whine that they are never taken seriously yet at the same time vote in someone who isn't close to being an all star into the all star game as a gag? all star game already jumped the shark many years ago.  Now I don't think you can even call it an all star game as long as these idiots get voted in and get voted MVP.
  11. John Scott - Players Tribute article

    From what I last read, John Scott is not currently in the NHL. All star game should be about actual all stars.  I don't want to now see a player who isn't anywhere close being in the game every year because it's a "feel good story."  The MVP was voted by the fans.  There was no way he wasn't going to be picked MVP.  He could have scored an own goal and he would have been chosen. hockey is now even more so the laughingstock of the top 4 pro sports in North America.  
  12. John Scott - Players Tribute article

    I have to say agree with mushnick in this case.  I find the part where Scott to be appalled about the NHL questioning if his kids would be proud to be beyond ridiculous. Scott should be ashamed and embarrassed that he is a complete joke of a player who got voted in as a complete joke by a fan base that constantly screams that they want to be as respected as the other leagues and then pull this crap. if this is what fans really want might as well vote in Rinaldo next year and then after that Sestito.  Just don't try to claim it's an "all star" game then.

    This is the Cardiff Devils btw.  They are a Welsh professional hockey team.
  14. New Jersey Devils' Lineup/Roster Thread 2015-16

    I think our current jerseys with the retro ones being the third jerseys are fine enough.  If they want to add the white retros I can be down with it too.  I don't want them to go the way of the Lowell Devils-like crest or anything with a picture of an actual Devil. Just remember, there are plenty of fans who would love these things.  I see people post pictures of mock-ups of 3rd jerseys and almost all are black and many of them have either a picture of the Devil, an outline of the state, the word DEVILS spelled out or a combination of the three.  IMO not one mockup have I ever seen looks even remotely good, but there are many fans who seem to love them.  Remember, these are the same people who are buying and loving those Accelerator and Cross Check jerseys.
  15. The Official Devils GAME WORN Jersey Thread

    Best way to find the older stuff is from other collectors.  Dealers like Iceviolence has some older stuff too, but I am either not interested in them or find their prices a bit high.  Another avenue is through auctions such as eBay, Classic Auctions or Game Worn Auctions.  Out of the 13 jerseys I listed above about 10 of them I got through deals or trades with other collectors.  You meet them on Facebook groups, on forums, through expos, etc.  The Larionov for example was posted in a Facebook group and I was able to grab it.  Other jerseys were offered to me by other collectors privately because they knew I would be interested in it.  A couple of jerseys I just put it out there that I am looking for them or something like them. Quite frankly finding older Devils jerseys have gotten pretty hard.  I see posts on other forums and on here from 2008-2012/13 and there was a pretty good selection of stuff floating around.  It's as if in the last 1.5-2 years the older Devils stuff has just dried up.  Even Game Worn Auctions and Classic Auctions have been pretty barren of Devils stuff in the last couple of years outside of only a handful of really high end or really low end stuff.
