The Devils shouldn't lose when they score 3 goals. They should AT LEAST come away with a point
Everybody knew this was a Schneider game, that Brodeur has played too much and was due for a bad one. Everybody except DeBoer, who is totally to blame for this loss
Deboer is the one who decided to start Brodeur tonight.
You're right, it was a sham sellout. I like to think that we'd get over 14k anyway though with the kiddies home from college and a holiday tomorrow...but who knows at this point
But the people were in the buildings, they were buying food, drinks, and merchandise. Bring on the sham sellouts.
This. As I've been saying, concessions is where they make their real money. These sham sellouts can expose non fans to the Devils. It enables a STH to bring a buddy to the game for free basically while only playing for a ticket assuming said STH'er is like me where I only have one seat. In the process, concessions sales also go up. It's the money that goes into the arena that really matters, and not so much the money that goes to the team if that makes any sense.
The funniest comment was when I sat down in my section 13 seat for the night, the group of guys who were all in the row moved back (evidently they were sitting with their friend on the aisle) and one of them made a crack it was the first time they'd been kicked out of those seats all year.
Since you were there, did the building actually look full?
