I just briefly went over the letter but if the Ring of Fire isn't on there, where we honor former devils and induct them into our hall of fame, with a section on the concourse with memorabilia of that player, for ex. Brylin than it should be included in that letter.

Thanks guys - "Devils Ring of Fire" has been added to the list. :dance:

What???? Are you kidding me???
I wanted to both proof this thing and let the majority of the board add any thoughts first.
I asked for an address, not for someone to send it YET!!!

PLEASE - NO ONE ELSE SEND THIS ANYWHERE UNTIL I'M SET w/a final revision!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please ask me!

:haha2: :rofl: :hah: :rant: :rofl:



Great job, and for the record, I was the one who requested LESS dancing girls. That kind of thing is bush league and did nothing to inspire the crowd whatsoever. The girls themselves looked incredibly uncomfortable doing it and you could definitely tell that they weren't trained very well. Hockey does not need cheerleaders.

I'm Masked Fan, and I DISAPPROVE this message!!!! :angry:

Masked Fan, I'm not sure I get what your saying here. (or am I missing the joke)
Do you have a beef, if so list why, and I'll consider an edit, but give me something to roll with here.


Or do you dissapprove of the whole letter idea???

THANKS TO ALL WHO CONTRIBUTED TO THE FINAL EDIT

The email letter was sent this morning to both the Marketing and Management Departments.

A snail-mail letter addressed personally to Lou will be sent out tommorrow morning. ETA is probably 3-4 days from Los Angeles, California.

I'll keep everyone here posted on any responses from the organization....

Thanks again!!

I still don't get why the snail mail is going to Lou instead of Vanderbeek. :noclue:

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.

I think that it should go to both Lou and Vanderbeek. We know that Lou reads snail mail and that Vanderbeek listens to the fans. Then at dinner or whenever they meet they can have a conversation like this..

Vanderbeek - "Hey Lou, I got a very interesting letter today from a group of fans."
Lou- "Yeah, I got that too. It had suggestions about how to get fans in the seats, right?"
Vanderbeek- "Yeah, there were some good ideas in there. I think that we should use some of them."
Lou- "Marketing is not the way to get fans in the seats, its having consistantly good hockey, year after year."
Vanderbeek- "Lou, we've been playing great hockey for the past 15 years, and we're averaging 15,000 a game. We need more than good hockey. We have to reward our fans."
Lou - "We reward our fans by winning Stanley Cups."
Vanderbeek- "But we need fans in the seats to see us win those Stanley Cups. Lou, the fans have come to us; they want to help us. I think that we should listen to them. It can't do any wrong?"
Lou- "Well atleast we don't have to pay them."

Lou- "Well atleast we don't have to pay them."


If Lou's philosophy could be summed up in nine words, I think those might be the correct nine right there. :lol:

Also, Ring of Fire is an EXCELLENT idea. If nothing else, I really hope the team listens to that suggestion. It's the perfect way to honor guys like Brylin, Driver, MacLean, Muller, Sundstrom, Chico, etc., etc.

Well guys here is the first immediate reply. :

:clap: :clap: :clap:
This first message comes from marketing. Its a start and seemingly good sign. Remember that a copy of the email went out to management and a snail mail to both Lou and Jeff as well (that'll take a few days to arrive). at the very least (before all the naysayers start w/the daily diet of do-nothing doom and gloom) - its a prompt and immediate response!

Dear NJDEVS.COM
,

Thank you for your recent e-mail and for taking the time to compile the list
of suggestions and constructive comments from our fans. Your document is
being disseminated among our management team for review, discussion, and
implementation. We will endeavor to incorporate as many of the suggestions
as we can this year and in future years where practical. We will be in further
communication soon.

We would encourage you to communicate with us and I would be personally
available to discuss any issue, problem, or recommendation you or the group
may have. Again, we appreciate your interest, comments, and mostly your
support of the New Jersey Devils.

Best regards,

Christopher Modrzynski

Sr. EVP/Chief Operating Officer


Additionally, a phone # was given to me for contact purposes. I'm not going to post it here publically, but I will make it available to those who wish to use it for positive purposes via a PM.

Nice, Modrzynski is a higher up there and keeps an eye on all things going on with the team, especially the minor league ones.

I agree with this 100%. The one thing hockey has going for it is that it's one of the most family friendly sports out there. There's other places to see that stuff (like on the corner a few blocks away from the stadium).

Wow, that took no time at all and is a REALLY good sign! How cool would it be to see a bunch of the exact ideas proposed in the letter taken into effect next season?

It's nice that it's late-June and we Devils fans have something to be excited about other than free agency. Great work LA!

Because as a Devils fan, it's rare and probably foolish to be excited about free agency anyway. :ph34r:

And just so I'm not being all negative, THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES OVER to DevilInLA for putting this whole thing together. Well done sir. :cheers:

what might be nice is to try to have a multi-board (this, devilsrule, hfboards, nj.com) discussion on ANY significant replies you may get. It would be awesome if Lou/JVB asked "for an audience/meeting" and fans from 3 (or more) boards showed up.
