I don't honestly care if the last few years of Kovy's contract are miserable.

The team's already gotten to the finals once during the tenure, I'd be pretty satisfied with the contract if the team sees the SCF at least once or twice more during its length.

I'm still really hoping against hope that Lou brings another forward over via trade or UFA before the season begins. I think he was totally caught off guard with Zach high-tailing it to Minnesota.

If would be cool if the Devils hosted a BBQ for STH so they could pick up their tickets instead of mailing them!

Would be even cooler if they gave us refunds for the first 2 home games in case people can't make it cause of prior commitments or work due to all this nonsense.

Dude, do we really have to go back to the infinite amount of posts saying you were boycotting regardless if there was a season, once they started canceling games? We all love the sport, we all love the Devils, we ALL want to be in Prudential Center doing what we enjoy most...that's Devils hockey and rooting for a win with our team and fellow fans.

Enjoy it, go to the games. I'm pretty sure you have a pretty good idea of which dates the games are going to be played. They've already said they are going as close to original schedule as possible. Figure 22nd is first home game, 15th IF they push a 50 game season. No need for dramatics, time to celebrate!

I don't buy that he got caught off guard. There wasn't much he could have done without keeping Zach. He tried, he got beat, and thankfully he didn't make any bad signings to fill a spot like Rolston after Gomez. We may suffer briefly do to losing Zach, but IMO we'll be able to fill out a good roster long term with the pieces we have and the cap space we have with Zach gone (small consolation, but still).

Yeah feel free to go ahead cause that wasn't me. I said a few times that if the entire season and playoffs was canceled then I wouldn't have been back.

I think at least it was a mix of getting caught of guard and being cautious due to the new CBA and ownership situation.
I just hope the CBA and ownership truly was holding Lou back from bringing in more talent so now he has a clear opening and cap space to bring someone over. What we have now on offense is not enough to make us competitive.

While I can appreciate Devils fans' excitement about the end of the lockout, I myself am not ready to forgive and forget so easily.

I'm sticking with Just Drop It. I'll see where my head's at after 10 games minimum.

And you're still saying and ho and humming you won't come back all along..dude give it up. You said from the start if 1 game was cancelled you'd be out and that changed.

I get it, but realistically...the Devils were NOT involved in any way shape or form in this...let it go. Support your team. Period, The End.

The Devils, along with every other NHL team, voted in favor of the lockout. If they wanted to express token support for not locking out, they could have done so.

I don't remember who said what or when since this has been a wild ride but I don't think its right to harp on Satans Hockey. This guy has supported the Devils for a long time, been a season ticket holder, and even organized a group where fans could go be in a section together with other fans to be loud and cheer on the team. He has every right to be pissed and make whatever decision he feels is right.

We're all Devils fans here so I'm not trying to start a fight (especially with you because I like you as a poster) but I think everyone should be able to have whatever reaction they want. I don't think any poster on here wants to knock on the Devils but its the only way a lot of people can express themselves.

I have to admit, I liked the whole Just Drop It idea but now that hockey is back, I am considering being a hypocrit and going back on my pledge. No matter how hurt and pissed I am over this and know we will be back here in 8 years, I just don't know if I can stay away from the game on tv. For that, I hate myself a little bit.

I guess I am just a bit more forgiving about labor disputes than others. Overall both the NHL players and owners lost out as they lost money this year and hurt some fans that will not spend money the might have otherwise on NHL related items.

This all being said will not stop me from watching the devils as it can't be worse than being a Met fan where I hate my owners and wish they would just sell out....

I'm pretty sure the Devils fan in me just feels sorry for the Mets fan in me.

If one of these boycotts somehow works and people stay away, *maybe* in eight years you get hockey back that you wouldn't have. In return, you drop hockey now. I don't really get it - I get being upset and finding no pleasure in watching, but if you're denying yourself pleasure in watching, you're only hurting yourself.

I definitely see what you are saying. I feel like whatever decision I make is the wrong decision so I might as well choose the wrong decision that allows me to watch the Devils. Essentially I'm just going to accept the fact that I am the NHL's bitch and will be for the rest of my life.
