I will be there come hell or high water, of course. But I think all of the outdoor games are overkill- we certainly don't need 6 of them. But that's the NHL- they can't help fvcking up a good thing, its just what they do, although it will make them a ton of money, so I'm sure they don't care lol.


I agree. When I heard there were 6 outdoor games I thought the NHL was messing up yet another good thing. Then, when I found out we were in one, my jaw dropped.

-Baseball stadiums sucks for these games. Hope Yankee stadium isn't as bad as citizens bank park or wrigley field with sight lines for this type of game.
-I'm hearing that the two Yankee stadium games are because of wanting to exploit the superbowl media that will be in town. My concern, however, is that the superbowl will actually overshadow these outdoor games and that they won't get the attention they deserve.
-Bet Marty is def happy he asked for that two year deal. As a fan, I'm happy he will be able to play in one.
-Could playing in one help lure FA's?

Add me to the list of people thinking all these outdoor games are overkill.

 

And then add me to the list of people who will try like heck to get tickets to the Rangers-Devils game.

my friend and i are dying to go.. my only concern is that by the time i get the money, the tickets will already be sold out

:doh1:  :doh1:

 

The 2 games in the same week may keep prices reasonable. That's about 100,000 hockey tickets on the market between the 2 games.

I'm definitely not a huge fan on these outdoor expansions. It ruins the spectacle of the Winter Classic, IMO

 

That being said; I'm going to try to attend the game.

We still need to make sure we fill that building as much as possible.. I plan to buy as many tix as I can and sell at cost to Devils fans.. This is very exciting

Assuming I'm not on my honeymoon, I will be looking for tix...

You definitely should! This is like a once-in-a-Devil-fan's-lifetime experience lol.. Very cool that you're such a big fan from out there!!

A huge positive for the Devils in this is that the run to the finals last year left them with a huge database to market to.. No doubt it has helped them sell so many tix this season, and I'm hoping it will help fill Yankee Stadium next season

Playing in this game will have absolute NO bearing on luring FA's....

I sat on the send tier of Citizens Bank Park for the Penn State game there after the Winter Classic and was pleasantly surprised I was able to see everything just fine. Downstairs would have been a different story though.

So we have a “home game” against the rangers in NY? We really got screwed on this one.

Finally some good news regarding the Devils this month.  As Colin said, this is a once in a lifetime experience.  Hopefully, because the Rags are playing 2 games within the same week at Yankee Stadium, their neandrethal fans will be forced to choose which game to attend, thinning their numbers a bit for both and evening the crowds out. 

 

Love the fact that we are playing the Sunday game, rather than the Wednesday.  I'm not sure how it works, but I would be willing to bet the NHL takes all of the revenue from these outdoor games and pays the home team the equivalent of what they make for a sellout at their home arena for the game while pocketing the rest.  If that is the case, then it makes sense for the Rags to be the away team because they will get to keep their 41 home dates and, essentially, get 2 extra home games (crowd advantage wise) while showcasing the franchise.

not sure how excited i really am about all of this, dont get me wrong its pretty awsome and all but i feel like to put a rink in the middle of yankee stadium is there going to be a good seat in the place? Already assuming that it will be extremely over priced. I dont know maybe i just really like prudential center even though i will probably go any way.

So now I'll get to hear 30,000 people chant "Mar-ty", awesome. I'll put the over under at 8 seconds for the first one. But ya, Ill still go.

Actually, do you think they'll be more marty chants or rangers sucks whistles?

That wasn't my point. We are basically giving a home game away to the rangers. Besides I'm sure they would make more $$ if the game were in NJ (Metlife Stadium)
