Okay good haha. He and JVR were talking about Jersey and he said something like "North NJ doesn't represent NJ" or it sucks or something to that affect. They were both playfully jabbing at eachother... and some people got REALLY upset and started a twitter campaign against him haha.


North NJ doesnt represent NJ? hahaha what else would it represent? Of course, hes from Cherry Hill...

I see the Preds dealing for Ryan

Sounds like he meant that North NJ doesn't represent ALL of NJ and that's true. I think sometimes central and south Jersey get passed over too.

Something just irks me about Ryan, he doesn't hit me as a very loyal player.

BTW if the Devils ever landed him down with his Twitter. He talks to fans openly about speculation.

the ducks are shopping Ryan because they need improvement and anyone we gave them that would improve them would hurt us. parise for ryan? i'd stick with parise. even if we need to trade him we could get a better player(defensemen).

Jersey is a segmented state that is night and day... which is why Jersey has difficulties creating an exclusive identity and why a 'Jersey' team is a hard sell.

North Jersey is very much NY... you'll get plenty of people to agree to that. Then you'll get those who argue it's not... but to outsiders, they appears as New Yorker's.

Anywhere from Trenton to Camden, etc is very much a Philly area. Again, you'll get those who say no... but to outsiders, they are very much Philly.
South Jersey is very... well... South Jersey. They either are seen as piney's or Philly transplants.

Central Jersey is a mix of all three... and there is always a disgareement of what exactly "Central" Jersey is... As both my parents and myself were born/raised in Toms River I knew this well... before I moved to Philly for college and stayed. Now I'm a weird Devils/Eagles/Mets fan. Although those were my teams before I got here... I blame my 3rd grade teacher's obsession with Randell Cunnigham for the birds :)

An opinion of mine that is not popular with others is that I feel like New York City is like North Jersey's city. That North NJ and NYC are like one state. So many people that work in NY live in NJ.

Not their fault that their teams that actually want to improve their competitiveness. That being said, how the Flyers and Rangers caps aren't already busting at the seams is beyond me.

I totally agree about the differences between North Jersey and South Jersey being like night and day, generally speaking. I've even sensed a hatred of North Jersey from some/many South Jerseyans.

Actually, I've read that a long long time ago New Jersey was split in half down the middle -- East Jersey and West Jersey -- rather than the current North/South.

An opinion of mine that is not popular with others is that I feel like New York City is like North Jersey's city. That North NJ and NYC are like one state. So many people that work in NY live in NJ.

Or that North Jersey is part of New York. That's what I always hear from people.

I've always divided NJ in my mind as North Jersey, South Jersey, West Jersey, Jersey Shore, North Central Jersey, and South Central Jersey. B )

I was tipped off to a potential Ryan trade a week ago, but now a decision to deal the Ducks’ high-scoring left winger, according to a source close to the situation, appears to be imminent. Anaheim GM Bob Murray has contacted a number of NHL general managers to gauge interest and talks were initiated a few weeks ago.

According to the source, a deal “could” be completed by the end of the week and it appears, as of now, the New York Rangers are the frontrunners. Last week, somewhat surprisingly, the Tampa Bay Lightning were actively discussing a Ryan trade. I would fully expect Toronto and Brian Burke, who drafted Ryan during his days in Southern California, to show interest.

Where would the Rangers even get the cap room to bring in Ryan? Aren't they still up against the cap after giving Dubinsky and Callahan raises and signing Richards?!

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

I'm real curious to know what they'd be sending the other way too.

The Rangers don't have a ton of cap room, but they can send down Sean Avery if they want to, or they can demote Wojtek Wolski to accomplish the same thing. If they traded something like Dubinsky + Del Zotto + Zuccarello for Ryan, that could work.

"According to the likes of @JohnBorukCSN @tpanotchCSN the Rangers, Hurricanes and Bolts are the leaders in the Bobby Ryan bidding war."

But after the coaching change, from Bob McKenzie

"My first reaction, and subject to change of course, is the Bobby Ryan trade watch just ground to a halt."

Bobby Ryan isn't going anywhere. Randy Carlyle will be the one leaving Anaheim if anyone is going.

If the Ducks want to shake-up their team, why trade Ryan? Young, 30-goal scorer, bright future. Wonder what is not being said? When you re-tool your team, I'd think Ryan, Getzlaf & Perry are all untouchable, then build around. Then again, I don't like or watch the West teams much.
