  1. Msg Tv Tonight

    Center Ice starts October 8, 2003 for this hockey season. My digital plan offers 1/2 season for $109, full season $159 and if signed up before 10/31 then it's $139 total 4 payments $34.75 each. My DirecTV is showing the game tonight as I posted on MSG. No Blackout in NY/NJ. It won't be long now just 7 more days for the regular season.
  2. Msg Tv Tonight

    Hey, according to the program guide of DirecTV tonight's pre-season game is on MSG at 7 PM the Devils against the Rangers.
  3. Devils At Boston

    How about the Devils held Boston to 1 shot for 20 minutes starting at the 11 minute mark of the first period and out shot Boston 28-18 and lost 1-0 ? Still pre-season not to worry. Flex Potvin had his night.
  4. Pummeled Devils Give Bullies Lesson

    Fighting during pre-season for rookies is a way for young players to make the team or show themselves off. The Devils are not known as a hitting team or as a hard hitting team and certainly not a fighting team. The Devils don't get prospects for fighting and there aren't any fighters left of the veterans. Don't worry fighting will stop when the real season begins and there won't be any at playoff time. As for hitting that's something the Devils have to learn to do that is take the body. But that's like the PP it doesn't fit into a defensive team's strategy. Marshall should have known better he is experienced and . If he got hurt shame on him.
  5. Nhl Brass Crying Wolf Over Cash-flow Woes

    The owners created what ever financial problem they presently have, if in fact they even have one. It's time for them to open the books, both sets and start to manage the hockey business as businessmen and not children. The players can't be faulted for being given these salaries or taking them if in fact the salaries are the problem in the first place. Hockey is a difficult game to watch in person because of the speed and therefore it is very hard to watch for some on TV. The real money made in most sports leagues is the revenue from TV. The NHL has a problem with TV revenues and ability to get a good or decent TV contract. So they suffer because of the control of the TV contract. Revenue sharing as suggested earlier in this thread is the answer for the smaller teams and Canadian teams with the dollar difference and financial balance that is necessary to sustain the NHL for the future. The richer owners don't want revenue sharing so they will accept a strike to rid themselves of the small market teams and Canadian teams that can't compete against the US Dollar vs Canadian Dollar. In the meantime the fan will suffer because of the negatives in the final season before the lockout and NHL hockey will be less when all is done.
  6. Joe Has Plenty Of Go

    Interesting posts regarding Joe and his signing. Lou shouldn't have signbed him because he wasn't worth the money for the entire season. His play early on really doesn't matter. PepperKorn said it very well about his petering out as the pressure come on. That should have been observed during the years he played with the Devils. Any comparison with Almo is wrong, Almo was talented and not a flash of his old self at the wrong time. I wish Joe well as I do every player that leaves the Devils. They all leave for the same reason, MONEY. With the Devils losing money and team financial value coming down annually Lou can't waste money on maybes at $5 M.
  7. Aol Time Warner Prepares To Sell Thrashers

    Thank you ESB for the information regarding the sale of the Yankee/Nets teams. It would appear that the Devils don't fit into anyones plans right now. That's too bad because without the basketball and hockey teams together it will be difficult to get something going re: arena in NJ. Unless the Corzine group get the Nets and keep them in NJ. Devilminder is right the Devils should come to Maine. Could go to Banger a hockey town because of the Black Bears (University of Maine hockey). Portland has an AHL team. I just can't imagine that there isn't a buyer in NJ (many wealthy people in NJ) for the Devils to keep them in NJ somewhere if not at CAA for a while.
  8. Aol Time Warner Prepares To Sell Thrashers

    ESB do you know what's happening with the sale of the Nets and maybe the Devils? Corzine was interested in the Nets. I don't know that there was a buyer for the Devils. They should be packaged for NJ. Thanks for info.
  9. Marty Questions Smythe Logic

    Marty mentions other Devils as the choice for MVP but he is really talking about himself. He wants another notch in his belt. One could say that the MVP is the player that rises to the occasion during the playoffs to the finals. With Marty it's expected so his has a disadvantage because his play is expected. In addition there are those that still believe his records are based on the constant total defensive play of the Devils and the players in front of him. Marty was the MVP IMO for the 2002/2003 Devils season. he kept them in many a game.
  10. Sykie Accepts Deal With Ducks

    I am very glad for Sykora> I feel he has earned a position of respect in the NHL. Now please don't put him down because of physical injuries and refusal to play as we really don't know the extent of his pain or possible further injury should he come on the ice and play. Many players for the Devils have bailed out a game of two because of injuries or sickness during the playoffs. Don't you wonder why the Devils have so many players that get food poisoning during the playoffs, especially on the road? Are the Devils management buying bad and cheap food for players? I don't think so. I think this is a Devils excuse for an injury.
  11. Jagr Confirms Trade Rumors

    They will love him on Broadway.
  12. No More Rats On The Farm?

    Titans would be a good move locally for building the Devils hockey fan base. People would watch at cheaper prices the Titans and if a star is born and goes to the Devils then that fan could start buying seats for Devils games. However I suspect, with the pending strike for 2004 for the NHL not the AHL and the possibility of the Devils moving elsewhere (new State) or going out of business if no buyers (can't keep losing dollar value of club and operating moneys) they are just cutting their losses. Albany can't be a money maker or breaking even and they haven't been winning so no or very little platoff activity must be losing money. It's too bad they can't be combined Rats and Titans and be the Devils farm.
  13. Imagine

    Imagine having your first line as Forsberg, Hejduk and Tanguay (after Tanguay signed this past weekend) and your second line being Kariya, Selanne and Sakic and having a backup goalie in goal David Aebischer. If Colorado could have Marty in goal with these two lines you could ship the Cup there now. It will be thrilling when the Devils meet them this season on November 1, 2003 in CAA @ 1 PM.
  14. Devils Sign 42-year-old Larionov

    Lou did it and it was a great move because he is a center, cheaper and durable. Lat's give it a chance. The Devils didn't really need to do anything so this has to be a plus and a positive move for Lou. If he turns out to be a bad choice it didn't cost much and won't hurt the team offensively. This is still a defensive team with a strong influx of defensive minded coaches and GM that jas won them 3 Cups in 9 years. If you want a highly offensive team you must pick another NHL team.
