  1. GDT: Caps @ Devs 1:00 PM

    Cory isn't bad in shootouts...he's about average, but rarely gets any support, so he seems worse in them than he really is .   First two periods were pretty dull overall, but overall I was happy with the way they hung with the Caps for much of the game.  Hard to see the Devils winning more than a game or two against them in a playoff series though.   And the two people working at the Devils Den Kids Shop really sucked.  We get it...since you're stuck there anyway, you see no point in trying to do anything with the slightest bit of urgency.  I asked one of them if any more red Marty pucks were available (just before game time) a disinterested "Dey all sode owt" in return.  Didn't seen right to me, but at that point I didn't want to miss the game.  My daughter wanted a color-it-in pennant, so during the first intermission, we went back down...sure enough, there were red Marty pucks suddenly available.  Got lucky we got there when we did (ahead of much of the crowd), because it was plenty more "la-dee-da-dee-da" service...I felt for the people at the end of the line big-time.   Just makes me crazy when people clearly couldn't give a sh!t about what they're doing.  At least make some effort to pretend just a little. Goddamn.

  3. 6 Years ago today... one of the best comebacks happened

    Two things that jumped out at me:   1) It's really hard to believe that was six years ago already...but that happens to me a lot as I get older.  I clearly remember watching that game (on TV) and losing my friggin' mind.   2) Six years is obviously a long time in NHL years, but it was weird seeing so many players who are no longer a part of the team.  And seeing #27 out there...and it being Mike Mottau.

    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.

  15. 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.
