  1. I would say that if Pat gets a statue then Stevens should have a statue. The plaza doesn't have quite enough room for all manner of statues. While Pat was a great player and the epitome of class and representative of all the good things about Devils culture, at the same time he didn't redefine his position the way Marty did to the point where they needed to put rules in place to counter his effect on the game.
  2. Fair enough. I forgot which thread I was in and was thinking he was talking about Devils forwards overall.
  3. You didn't follow the team in 2000, then? (re: forwards)
  4. I would argue that in any given NHL team you need to reach a tipping point in terms of lines able to score to be successful. Figuring on players to deliver exactly their production one year to the next regardless of who else is on the team is foolish. In a situation in which Taylor Hall isn't the only player that teams need to key on to curb the team from scoring, the team as a whole will do better and so will Hall. Bringing in Johansson helps Taylor Hall, Palmieri, Henrique (assuming he's still part of the equation), Zacha, Hischier (if he makes it), etc. to all do better. It makes this team a lot harder to play against offensively. It's part of the reason that the A-Line struggled once Mogilny was gone. Having critical mass at forward is important and this team hasn't had it since Parise's departure.
  5. Shades of Alexandre Daigle and Patrick Stefan, no?
  6. We're not trying to recapture the glory of the Edmonton Oilers circa 2014, are we?
  7. LaFontaine played in a very different era than that in which Kariya played the majority of his career.
  8. I'd be interested. Between the 1/2 draft pick thing and stealing a young UFA from them it'd make games between us and the Flyers interesting again since we're both bottom feeding teams still at the moment.
  9. Go on snipe hunts for the Jersey Devil?
  10. I'd say this was all taken from Cornell Big Red Hockey who've been doing all of these chants for far longer than the Chiefs, Preds or Devils. Back in 2001 when I was attending games at Lynah Rink at Cornell it was already a long time tradition to shout on all goals: "SIEVE! SIEVE! SIEVE! SIEVE! SIEVE! IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT! IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT!" then "YOU SUCK!" during the R&R pt2, and punctuated with "WE'RE GONNA BEAT THE HELL OUTTA YOU! F--K 'EM UP F--K 'EM UP! GO C-U!"
  11. To answer the question (because when you asked I got curious and looked it up), the only 2 NHL teams that have won the Stanley Cup that are not still in the city they originally won in are the Montreal Maroons (they went defunct due to the Great Depression in 1938) and the original Ottawa Senators (they are the only ones to have attempted moving, they moved to St Louis (Eagles) 1934 for a season and went defunct a year later). No modern NHL Stanley Cup winning team has ever moved out of their metropolitan area.
  12. Agreed. I definitely couldn't have imagined in 1995 (and especially after 1996) that my state's hockey team would go on to achieve what they did in the subsequent decade. I remember looking at Terry Sawchuk's shutout record when I was a kid and thinking that there was no way on earth that would ever be broken but praying that Marty could pull it off. I remember the goal against Montreal in the playoffs and thinking that'd be our year (until Bill Guerin's fat toe killed us the following series). I remember the goalie battle with Ed Belfour in 2000 that led to the "Marty's better" counter-chant to the Stars-fans' "Eddie's better" that they'd taunted Roy with in their Conference Final matchup. Then came the Conn Smythe miscarriage of justice in 2003. All throughout this time Marty's been the constant of the era. I have high hopes from the way this new era is beginning that perhaps we can make something of our redheaded new goalie and start a new era of great things to keep the tradition begun with Marty alive.
  13. Good times. Good memories.
  14. That was a pretty awesome save until it went in....
  15. Definitely happy with this choice.
