  2. The Devils Uniforms

    Don't get me wrong, I don't semi-like them because theyre different. Rather, they've just kindve grown on me stylistically. It could be that young, fast talent sporting them are helping condition my eyes favorably towards the kit. Lord knows seeing the usual uniform from the previous five years makes me anticipate Ben lovejoy plodding hockey. I'm with you though in that I'd still prefer the originals. But, if they had to tweak it then I don't hate this modification.
  3. The Devils Uniforms

    Most didn't want different for the sake of different. If you think this is an upgrade though then by all means you can buy it and enjoy it. But I don't think a fresh start should mean new uniforms if you already have great uniforms that are very very difficult to improve upon. Looking at our classic jerseys...even if somebody absolutely made me change them. I don't even know where I'd begin and how I could improve them.
  4. The Devils Uniforms

    They can be, but they can also be a lot better. When they're able to fix things in 2019 I don't see them continuing on this path though. Because what can you do really? You can't make the floaties wider, you can't make the shoulder yokes narrower they're both at the max already. The waist stripe is gone already so that makes the jersey looks empty. You can bring it back or just leave it empty. That or the NHL plans to fill that space with ads. Either they correct their mistakes or we may actually get that full rebrand that was rumored but never happened.

    I actually like our new uniforms. Its a little different but I think we can use a little different as we embark on a fresh start.

    I was kind of bummed that Mueller didn't stand out as much to me tonight, but then I realized that none of the D had much of an opportunity to stand out, since the play was so dominated by the Devils' offense. There really isn't too much to say that hasn't been said already. There's no question Bratt is starting the season in NJ, in my opinion. He has made countless smart, quick plays, and is so composed all the time. His awareness is amazing, and he seems to know exactly when he should hold on to the puck and when he's got to dish it out quickly. In a weird way, he seems like everything I hoped Tedenby would be and everything I hoped Josefson would be, in one package. He'll get his hand full of games, and then tear up the OHL. What a steal of a pick he's looking like. I was not expecting this. I think I've always misjudged Johansson when I've watched Washington games in the past. I always thought he was more of a passenger on that team. But he is really a complete player, and a great veteran presence. It's awesome to watch him get to work on the PP. He plays a nice, controlled game, definitely a threat when he's on the ice. While Quenneville may not be completely ready to be a full time NHL player, he showed that his shot will most definitely be an asset, with those two goals tonight. It was almost the exact same shot, twice within 30 seconds (and a great play by Bratt for one of them). Hall-Zacha-Palmieri will be a great line this season. I cannot wait to play the Flyers so that they'll finally shut up about Konecny and Provorov being such better picks than Zacha. And that Palmieri play on the second Zacha goal reminded me of McDavid or Ovechkin. He has been possessed so far this preseason. I need to control the hype. It's only preseason...
  7. The Devils Uniforms

    I always like their uni's up until the late 90's. Thought they were classy for an expansion team. Then they went off the rails and never corrected things.
  8. The Devils Uniforms

    Well the reasoning behind the longer/wider shoulder yoke is to give the players the appearance of being bigger. Wider at the shoulders. The truncated shoulders just makes them look a bit...smaller. More compact. Not sure why exactly that was done since it's not an aesthetic upgrade on the players. Guess it depends on the fan and how big a guy/girl you are. With folks who have naturally wide shoulders it will look silly. On women who have narrower shoulders it would probably look good. And I don't mean the womens fashion jersey but the regular Devils jersey.
  9. The Devils Uniforms

    It looks like he's wearing a big white nightshirt. Other than that...did they change him a bit too? He looks pretty much the same?
  10. The Devils Uniforms

    Better uniforms than what they have now though. What they have now is so characterless, IMO

    Box score says mcleod didn't register a SOG, not good
  12. The Devils Uniforms

    They never had good one's though.

    Split squad games are more common early in preseason, but they're way more common in MLB preseason. I think their popularity has diminished some now that you have to dress a certain number of veteran players for every game.
  14. GDT: 9/25/17 NJ Devils @ Senators @ PEI @ Hockeyville

    It was Geoff Ward.
  15. GDT: 9/25/17 NJ Devils @ Senators @ PEI @ Hockeyville

    Without looking it up, I'd guess Kowalsky.

    I like AG's "reporting". Hope it continues
  17. GDT: 9/25/17 NJ Devils @ Senators @ PEI @ Hockeyville

    Out of curiosity, who coached for us against Isles?
  18. GDT: 9/25/17 NJ Devils @ Senators @ PEI @ Hockeyville

    It’s not something I recall seeing in hockey, but I get the concept from baseball.
  19. GDT: 9/25/17 NJ Devils @ Senators @ PEI @ Hockeyville

    I agree. Fearless, very strong on puck
  20. GDT: 9/25/17 NJ Devils @ Senators @ PEI @ Hockeyville

    Got it, very interesting. Have never seen or heard of that before. That's a first for me. KEEP HYNES!
  21. 2017 JETS

    I can't remember the last team pegged for 0-16 more than this Jets team. I mean they're not good but the talent isn't so overwhelmingly bad (especially on defense) where anybody should've considered 0-16. The media was just in fanatical loljets mode. Only other team that gets this treatment is Cleveland and I don't think they were ever projected to be 0-16 in the past decade or so. Jacksonville will be a tough matchup for us. But I can see them making life tough for a bad QB like Bortles the same way they did to Cutler. Morton has done an incredible job with what he's been given with this offense. He gets everybody involved and does a nice job finding weaknesses in other teams D.

    Typically happens earlier in preseason when you have soo many players and sometimes vs same team, Calgary and Edmonton had one about a week ago. Preseason is more about evaluation of the players and warm up for the players, not so much for the fans. I think it just maximizes the amount of time the coaches have to analyze and hold practices for the players.
  23. GDT: 9/25/17 NJ Devils @ Senators @ PEI @ Hockeyville

    Was it planned? I don't get it. Explain to the special ed folks, like me...
  24. GDT: 9/25/17 NJ Devils @ Senators @ PEI @ Hockeyville

    Same way they do it in baseball spring training, it’s a split squad.
  25. GDT: 9/25/17 NJ Devils @ Senators @ PEI @ Hockeyville

    How were there 2 games tonight? Anyone care to share how that works? I'm lost here.
