With tomorrow looking like it will be another sell out (knock on wood) and with the Rangers as our next home game it looks like the Devils will have four straight sell outs to start the season. With the twelve straight sell outs to end the season/playoffs last year the streak will be at 16 games! With reportedly 10,000 season ticket holders our future looks bright! Kudos to everyone who tries to fill the Rock at every game. :clap:


...but but but, Devils have no fans brah.

I still go back to the college winter break last season when we sold out 6 of the 7 home games that occurred during the break.. And not all of them were typical big draws

But yeah this team has a bright future attendance-wise.. A young fan base, and a growing tradition.. If we can push to sellout that Lightning game we could make it 18 in a row.. Wonder what the team record is

Also, the 10,000 STH is quite impressive.. In speaking to the head of sales, he said he'd ideally like it to be 12,000.. His philosophy is that you want to be able to also do group and individual sales to get new people into the arena and wanting to buy season tix to replace your people who drop

Yeah, I was watching the end of the Bruins Devs game out in San Diego with 2 Bruin fans........one tells me how he couldn't ever watch the Devils when "they played that boring trap". I told him how the "boring" 2001 Devils were the highest scoring team in 15 years at that point and he told me I'm wrong..........he then proceeded to ask me how many shoot out attempts do they go before the game is called a tie.......you just can't make it up.

You are right about the 2001 Devils being exciting, but they weren't the highest scoring team in 15 years when they scored 295 goals. The 1993-94 NJ Devils scored 306 goals, and there's several other teams that bested that total. Not sure where you got that 15-year thing from.

Re: 2001...Ranger fans can ALWAYS be counted on to be morons. I remember many of the ones I spoke to at the time not only STILL kept talking about how boring the Devils were (that 2001 Devils team was about as exciting as it got for that era), but actually said WITH STRAIGHT FACES that more teams should play like the Rangers. You know, the Rangers that at the time couldn't so much as sniff the playoffs, and were playing with absolutely zero passion, and whose players seemed to like wearing Broadway Blue more for the massive paychecks that came with it than anything else? Those exciting, exhilarating Ranger teams.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Let them discount the tickets, you have to in order to get butts in the seats if you want to sellout. The Devils tickets are overpriced for who/what they are, anyway. First, it is the NHL. Second, they are the only professional franchise in NJ. Third, their main following is 15-35. It makes sense that they offer discounts and coupons and all that. I like it. It is good marketing and it is smart business. A butt in the seat=2 hot dogs, 2 beers, a Devils Hat. No butt in the seat=0 dollars.

I don't care about the discounts. As long as the building is full of Devils fans, like last year's playoff run and the couple of games to start this season, that's all that matters.

That's fine. Its better (in every sense) to sell discounted tickets then have those seats remain empty. As a STH, it undercuts what I can re-sell my seats for if I can't attend a game, but I really don't care. I don't buy my tickets to resell them. I'd rather have a full building with Devils fans sitting around me than a 1/2 empty building with absolutely no atmosphere.

What discounts are you guys talking about? And where do I find them?
I am desperately waiting for the promotional schedule because there is no way I can afford to take my family to a Devils game with the normal ticket prices.

I think they're over at this point. Before the season started, there was a thirty percent discount for Opening Night. If you're a season ticket holder (or know someone that is) you could get individual game tickets for 50 percent off, but that's over now. Season ticket holders got a free set of extra tickets for specific games.

Still, Stubhub is your best bet. You can get tix for some games below $30 a pop. When you think about it, it's only a little more than seeing a movie in Imax.

I'm sure there will be more LivingSocial deals throughout the season.

There is also a discount for the middle and lower tiers for the game against Tampa and Carolina coming up. It was in an email and there is no code, so to get it your email has to be in their system on some sort of list. It's one of those promos where for $38 you get a 100 level seat, hot dog and soda.

I get these emails about deals because I am on pretty much every single email list the devils have. Im on the following email lists:

NJ Devils main email list
NJ Devils fan club list
Newsletter list
Prudential Center list
Group sales list
Kid's club list (yes they sometime have deals on there too)
And a couple of other lists I can't remember off the top of my head.

You are right........have to do some research when I get home. I could have sworn that one of their teams one year had the most goals a team had had in a 10-15 year period. Anyway, the guy still annoyed me.
