  1. League sets expansion draft rules

    What a horrible contract that turned out to be, especially if we have to protect him.

    If he turns into a Henrique type of player, I will take it.
  3. 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs thread

    I heard that line and had to just laugh. The last time they went deep in the playoffs was over 30 years ago, unless you define deep as being in the first round. I still will take Howie over Sam Rosen and the clown they have working with him any day. Fact of the matter is, the best play by play guy doing hockey in this area is Kenny Albert, and he does the Rangers radio broadcast. I wish we had hired him to do our TV when Doc retired.

    They are Flyers fans, from Philly. What did you expect? Sports fans, and the general population of inbreds thatinhabitthat city, are some of the lowest forms of human beings. At least nobody got stabbed to death on the way out of the arena tonight,

    I would add Blackwood into that group. I watched Wood and BC play the last 2 games. He is a really big guy that has speed like Kreider. He was out in the last minute to protect a 1 goal lead and ended up staking an interference penalty, but the fact that he was trusted by BC's coach to be on the ice in that situation is a good thing. Really impressed by his play.

    Gottcha.I agree withyou on that.

    Wasn't it a big part of Holik's role here that he was constantly paired against the top players from the other team and assigned the task of shutting them down? It's been a few years now, but I remember him and our "checking line" doing a very good job ofholding the other teams' top lines off the scoresheet, especially in the playoffs during our cup runyears (1995-2003).
  8. Jersey (Sweater) Redesign concept site

    For a 3rd jersey, the red and the green options aren't bad (although I think the logo on the front would have to be in green to make it work). If they permanently change the colors to red and green and drop the black, it would be a mistake. The jerseys we have are great now. No need to change them.
  9. I can't use my seats tonight and am looking to sell them. Tickets are in Section 123, Row 11. Best offer will be accepted and I can email them directly to you. PM me if interested. Thanks.

    The also offer the course - Clarkaround 201 - the art of stubborn repetitiveness in spite of the odds.
  11. Devils sign Barnabas Health to largest sponsorship in 8 years

    I would also imagine that you will see practice jerseys for sale at the team store and on line with the BarnabasHealth ad on them and a customization option. As long as these ads don't make their way to the game jerseys, I'm ok with it. The new owners/management has definitely done a good job in getting corporate sponsors back into the fold, and have done a really good job of selling most of the suites in the arena (I think there are only 6 still unsold). The club/black seats in the lower bowl are still a problem though.
  12. Devils sign Barnabas Health to largest sponsorship in 8 years

    Glad the team signed a nice sponsorship deal. Don't care about the ads on practice jerseys (who sees them anyways), but the name they chose for the practice rink is just dumb.
  13. What's happened to Severson and Merrill?

    I think you have to separate the 2 a bit. Severson is still veryyoung and will take more time to develop. He has all the tools to be a top 4 defenseman in this league and I think he will end up being that when all is said and done. Merrill on the other hand is not consistent enough yet and is a bit older than Severson. There's still time for him, but I think we did overrate him a bit and now it looks like he's going to top out as a 5-6. I had high hopes for him coming off his rookie season, but he hasn't progressed since then which is concerning. He shows flashes of being a very good defenseman, buthe doesn't do it on a nightly basis which is necessaryfor coaches to trust you in the NHL.
  14. Revitalization Around The Rock

    If they are taking all of this surface parking away to create triangle park, I sure hope that they have a plan in place to replace it within with a parking deck or something on that order the immediate vicinity of the arena.
  15. Kovalchuk removed from SKA after 1 Playoff Game

    If we traded his rights for that Pavel Buchenvich kid and a first, I'd be fine with it. However, realistically speaking, I can't see either team wanting to make a trade with each other under any circumstances.
