  1. Sorry if this has been discussed already. When they interviewed Nolan after the selections they pointed out that Nolan wanted Nico to go #1. His response with a smile is: Now you are going to get me in trouble. So if the Devils drafted him he was going to pull a Lindros and not put on the sweater or count the days until he was a free agent? The Devils made the right choice with Nico. Edit: I just don't see Nolan being a nice guy and wanting something good for Nico. I saw it as a shot at playing in NJ if I wasn't clear before.
  2. To me they are eh. I will stick with my CCM's never did buy the reeboks BTW did anyone notice that with the short black shoulder yoke they look like Capt. Picard's command uniform on Star Trek : The Next Generation?
  3. Today I'm leaning to the "you can't teach size" argument so I picked Nolan. I would not be disappointed if it is Nico.
  4. Well since they went orange for the playoffs it seems very likely, Just my opinion but I think they should have stayed with the blue. They did win their cups with blue.
  5. The thing that always bothered me about Giguere's Smythe is yes he was lights out for 3 rounds but was average the final round. I have always thought the Smythe was for most valuable player for the ENTIRE playoffs not 3/4s. So Giggy Puff with his mattress pads took home the Smythe. The Devils took home the THE CUP!
  6. Thanks! That makes it even better!
  7. I don't want this to be a thread of pro hey suckers versus anti hey suckers. Let me say I don't really care if it is shouted out. It does bother me that it is shouted even if the Devils are down by 6 goals and they score with 30 seconds left in the game. Now in Nashville they yell out the goalie's name then Hey you suck! They chant something else after that but I haven't been able to make it out. It just seems that Nashville has taken the chant to another level. TV even caught a guy last night wearing a "Hey You Suck! Tee shirt.
  8. I look at this way: Nolan is 6 3 according to scouting reports I read a very good 2 way center. Nico is 6 1 and a very good offensive center, Nolan has injury history. If Nolan gets healthy can the Devils afford to give a 6 3 inch center to the Flyers? Or do they give the Flyers an offensive wiz? This is a decision for the guy making big bucks Shero. * Of course the Devils will draft a goal tender.
  9. According to the NHL 8:00 pm EST. I think that's at 2:00 AM by you
  10. Let's Go Devils!.... or should I say ping-pong balls?
  11. Not a big fan of Kovalchuk. Jacques Lemaire did wonders with him turning him into a somewhat reliable 2 way player. I do remember him doing extended shifts. I do remember the Devils passing up good shots to get the puck to Kovalchuk for a not so good shot on the power play. Can he play a 82 game season anymore? I hope it's a ploy to get a big payday for the KHL. The drama we endured from him over 2 summers was too much. To me not worth it unless he is used to get draft picks,
  12. I have an offseason plan worth a couple of wins. Get rid of the high fiving stair route to the ice and just have them come out of the tunnel 10 feet from the dressing room. Yes I'm saying professional athletes can't deal with a stair climb 4 times a game for 41 games.
  13. Might be the worst. The early years nothing was expected. I figured they wouldn't be in the playoffs this year. I expected to be eliminated in the last week of season.(Maybe i was too optimistic.) There sure were a lot of bad endings to Seasons though, Carolina has already been mentioned. How about '96 all they had to do was beat Ottawa in the last game of the season at home. Of course they sh!t the bed.
  14. Elias on the open practice today: "It was an easy practice for them (the Devils) and a hard one for me." They got their work in and had a lot of fun with each other and the crowd. It actually had the feeling of an old South Mountain practice.
