  1. GDT: Caps @ Devs 1:00 PM

    NJ only played well for one period, so this is a fine result despite blowing the lead. Some things are apparent: Severson is better than Moore, Helgeson and Gelinas. He needs to come back Blandisi is for real. Makes things happen every shift I thought Larsson and Greene did very well vs. Ovechkin Kuznetsov is legit

  4. Relentless We Are vs Old School Lou Feb. 4 GDT

    I haven't been a fan of Stephen Gionta since day one but I admit he was a useful 4th liner for a few seasons but it's obvious his time is up. He's clearly lost a step, which wouldnt be a huge deal if it wasn't for his size. Watching him track players on the PK is maddening because he cant cut off defensmen's angles as well as he used to. Hey, by the end of the year he'll have over 250 GP which is sort of amazing when you think about it, but enough is enough
  5. Around the League 15-16 Edition

    Heh, our old friend Zach Parise seems to be in danger of missing the playoffs. They've been brutal for about a month
  6. Relentless We Are vs Old School Lou Feb. 4 GDT

    Think it's a good sign that nothing went Blandisi's way and he was still our most dangerous player. I think he's gonna be a good one
  7. New Jersey Devils' Lineup/Roster Thread 2015-16

    Schneider nursing a minor injury. Uh oh
  8. New Jersey Devils' Lineup/Roster Thread 2015-16

    I dont think NJ is in the business of acquiring a rental
  9. New Jersey Devils' Lineup/Roster Thread 2015-16

    Is it bad that I dont care whether it's Gelinas or Helgeson who comes out for Moore? Seriously, I can't stand EG.
  10. I feel bad that Rangers fans have to watch Dan Girardi 82 + games a season. Blandisi made him look silly twice and got rewarded the second time for a highlight reel goal. Ahh who am I kidding, they deserve Danny G
  11. The Marty Night thread

    Yeah, that would be a friggin bummer if it ends up the 9th. You'd have to think the league would reschedule if there is any chance of attendance being affected, tho, I doubt the Oilers have many more EC trips
  12. I dont think you can have 6 with the new format? For the Metro for instance- 7x6- 42 (division) 3x8=24 (conference)= 66. 1x14 (West)= 80 I actually like this and you can add the extra 2 games in the division. The only teams that NJ draws well against the West is Chicago and maybe Minnesota because of Parise, so it'll definitely help ticket sales having 4 more Rangers, Islanders, Pens and Flyers home dates.  
  13. At least Nash is out too. I would've preferred they give Boucher Cammalleri's spot since Stempniak and Henrique are good at cycling and Bouch can find the soft spots for his shot. I'll be in chat tonight.
  14. John Scott - Players Tribute article

    Hockey isnt popular for an array of reasons: 1) It's for the rich/middle class and it's regional. For the most part, kids from only a dozen or so states (MA, NY, CT, NJ, PA, IL, MI, MN, WI, MO, CA, VT, NH, ME) play. 2) Lockouts 3) 2 intermissions. Personally, I love intermissions since I can grab a bite to eat, take a shower or whatever. But for a lot of people, that's too many large breaks 4) Only a quarter of the league are Americans. In the NFL it's 99%, NBA 90-95%, MLB 75%.

    The Flyers get almost no air time down here on the radio. Even in the midst of the NHL season it's 90% Eagles. 5% Sixers, 4 1/2% Phillies and the Flyers get that remaining half percent. I'd wager if the Flyers had a prolonged struggle they would lose a ton of ticket sales. As it is, I got into an October Devils-Flyers game in Philly for 20 bucks. Used to be $50 minimum.
