If we sign Jagr, what will that make the average age of this team...40?

 

Jagr can be somewhat effective even at his advanced age, but I'd rather have Brunner at this point.  Not the worst thing in the world if we signed him to a 1 year deal, especially if we aren't in the playoff hunt at the deadline and are able to flip him to a contender.

If you watch the below the net camera I think you can tell Josefson didn't pass that but it was the defenseman knocking the puck away.

Dammit. Still a pretty good play otherwise. Took two defenders to him, which opened up Gio.

So Zero, are you going to tell us where you heard this Jagr thing or not? There's nothing anywhere about it.

It was mentioned by a poster on TG's blog earlier today.  Guy claimed he knew someone with inside information.  TG's response was, unless his informant was Lou himself, then the guy had no clue who Lou was meeting with.

Awesome. Everyone with their 'inside info'. Seriously, these Twitter a$$holes are the worst.

1 year for the right price take him. Someone is going to get him  on the cheap. Just a matter of time, He wants to play but is presently trying for the best dollar deal I can't blame him so just stay with him he wants a chance to win the cup and play with Elias. Don't panic Lou.

honestly if Jagr were touring anything to see if he should join the Devils, it'd be the new casino in Atlantic City

I agree. The whole casino thing is one giant trap for idiot's cash. Idiot goes in with cash, comes out a bit drunk, no cash. The whole thing is rigged so if you keep playing, you WILL lose money eventually. Only way I'd gamble is if I had some cash I really couldn't use on something better(unlikely), then maybe I'd play some blackjack, a few tries at the roulette wheel, that's about it. I don't know, maybe it's just that I understand math, but I don't like playing a game where I cannot gain the upper hand no matter what I do.

I mean, sure, if you want to just do it for "fun", go right ahead, but I just don't see the entertainment value in playing games you could play anywhere, all for the VERY small chance you'll make money.

My girlfriend went to Vegas and played some type of wheel of fortune roulette game. She put 50 dollars in the machine and swore she wouldn't spend another dime. First spin she wins $1,000 dollars and walks away. Smart girl

What?  It's not a very small chance, that's how casinos stay in business.  The house edge on blackjack and craps is very small, it's larger on roulette and I believe largest on slot machines.  Still, if people went bust every time they went to casinos, they'd be out of business quickly.  The fun of gambling is the thrill of winning (or for some losing) - I can't think of anything more boring than playing roulette for no money.  No one understands that better than Jaromir Jagr.

I understand the odds, but the average person isn't going to play perfectly or have a good understanding of the game, which will affect their ability to win at blackjack, then add in comped drinks, ability diminished further. If you have all those things, at best it's like a 40-45% you'll win, I think. I don't have a very good understanding of the game of craps, so I won't comment there.

I've never been in there but I hear it's extremely nice. They tried to cater only to "high class" when they opened last year which is why they almost went out of business. This year they toned it done and are taking all the business they can get. If you like getting the free drinks while in the casinos Ballys is one of the best because you can order straight from the slot machines instead of waiting for one of the drink girls to come by. Free mixed drinks + tip or $1 bottles of beer. Last year when wifey and I stayed in Ballys we'd be able to just keep a slow pace at the slots, drink for 2-3 hours and only lose $20-$30 bucks each...which is on par or less of what I'd spend at a bar.

 

As far as attractions. this year we did the dolphin tour at the marina. 2 hour cruise from 1-3 and they guarantee dolphin sitings or they give you another tour free. Next time we come just the two of us, wifey and I want to do the cocktail cruise which is at 6pm, goes down then back up the Atlantic City casino run, and is open bar.

 

Margaritaville and Land Shark which are Jimmy Buffet's chains are brand new this year outside of Resorts. The board walk area isn't as trashy as it used to be. You're fine walking the board walk after dark as long as the bars are still open. 

 

Other then that, Ripley's had some new stuff this year they didn't have last year...IDK guess it depends what you enjoy doing to tell you what is new or good in the area, also depends last time you were down here.

I don't gamble as much as I used to, but in my experience, blackjack dealers will always tell you what the right move is if you don't know.  And people at the tables generally seem to know too.
