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

    You've been accused of doing the contrary thing on another occasions by others (I'm hardly the only one), and there are times it does seem like you're doing it for the sake of doing it; to your credit, you usually find some things (like numbers) to back up what you're saying (which of course will sometimes lead some to question the validity of such numbers)...that at least gets people thinking and discussing and looking at things from other angles, which is definitely not a bad thing.  Most of the time I don't think you're digging up numbers for the sole purpose of being contrary.  And usually when I reference you, it's because I think you've made a good point that I happen to agree with (even if the bedside manners aren't always there), or brought up a topic worth expanding on.  When I do mention you (and it's not really that often), it's mostly along the lines of "Tri alluded to..." or "Tri has mentioned this" or something along those lines.  NOT "Tri probably thinks that..."

    I don't do that.  I sometimes reference points you've made, and there's been times where you've shown evidence to prove that a player who is not passing the eye-test with many posters isn't always as bad as he seems, as you're in more in tune with those numbers than most.  Nothing to do with "speculating what you're thinking."  I didn't say "Tri probably thinks that Gio is really playing better than he appears to be."  Just saying that you might be able to find numbers to support such an idea if so inclined.

    Oh me neither...I've had my fill of Baby Gio.

    Tri can probably dig up some "he's not so bad" stats/metrics, and who knows, maybe they have merit...and yeah, this year was not really about making the playoffs, so I get why he was still here to start the season...but Gionta's really hard to take now.

    When you're a "hanging around the last playoff berth" kind of team, and one of your main offensive contributors is hurt yet again, every stretch is kind of tough.  Games are rarely easy for the Devils...they all tend to be tight.  The schedule isn't too bad for rest of February (and the Devils get 8 out of 12 games at home, starting tomorrow, for whatever that's worth).  It's from 3/3 to 4/2 that it gets much tougher...10 out of 15 on the road, including a dreaded West Coast trip, and three road games against Dallas, Florida and Tampa (the latter two back-to-back, though with a day to rest up in between).  Two against Pittsburgh as well.  Devils probably need about 16 points or so in the next 12 games to have a shot at the playoffs...I get the feeling March is really going to be hard on them.

    I remember when the Devils were really good in shootouts...

    At least they're coming away with one point minimum.

  12. The Marty Night thread

    Looked on eBay and sure enough, the Stevens and Daneyko pucks currently available have that little white mark.  I'm assuming mine at home do (I'm not there so I can't tell).   Seems like nothing went right with Niedermayer's retirement goodies...that shade of red used on his puck was nowhere near the first two (you can see that in my wall pic...much darker) and it also had that weird number font (similar to his banner). Brodeur's puck and banner have clearly gotten things back on track.
  13. The Marty Night thread

    Not to mention they've done a nice job giving the arena some freshening up (we've been over the Fire and Ice Lounges and how both started looking gaudy and dated very quickly) and improved the overall food quality and options.  They've let their GMs spend.  They might've had a few corporate-type missteps early (probably got some bad advice with what NJ fans are supposed to like), but I think they've been fine overall.  I don't have any complaints.
  14. The Marty Night thread

    I'd be stunned if mini-banners and the photo aren't a part of this.  This ownership has not shown themselves to cheap out on the fan experience.  Makes for really nice collectibles too. If you're referring to the red-faced pucks (like the ones on my wall), yes, those are apparently already available at the Devils Den and in much greater supply than the previous ones (I had to get the Stevens, Daneyko, and Niedermayer pucks all on eBay).  The Brodeur pucks are EXACTLY the same as the previous ones, in terms of overall appearance. Thank for the kind words re:  my basement.  I've a movie (and music) nut too, but my basement just evolved towards sports-theming. 
  15. The AV Chewing Gum Club vs General Hynes ResilientWeAre Crew Feb. 2 GDT

    Sather did a good job in somehow Houdini-ing his way out of some bad contacts.    They've had a nice window, and it's still open for now, but some of the older guys who were part of this run are starting to show their age.  No one is saying they're 100% done, but they're going to have to get a little creative to keep this going...for now it's looking like the multi-round playoff runs are going to be harder to come by.
