I'm really confused by all the comments like these. There's been games played where the road conditions have been WAY worse then they are today, and snow falling MUCH heavier. I guess since the team isn't playing to our wonderful fanbase's standards this year it's just time to bitch and moan about everything possible.

 

Point has ALWAYS been, if both teams can get there, the officials can get there, the game will be played. It's never been different then any other year. 

 

That's not a hard and fast rule, just a general guideline.  The Flyers and Hurricanes were both 'there' and it still got canceled.

"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

Never said it was a hard a fast rule, you are correct it's the general guideline. IDK why the Flyers cancelled their game except the fact that, that area is also expecting 4+ inches more of snow then Newark is.

I highly doubt the devils management would be the only ones responsible for canceling a game due to weather...

I hate to say it but the Devils are such a second class operation. I had to eat my tickets tonight since traveling from
philly just isn't feasible. Can't wait for the next time they call me looking to sell a ticket package. All stubhub for here on out.

Flyers did the right thing. SoE in each cities. Not safe to be out. It's standard practice and the right thing to do.

The gov of the state issues a state of emergency, Devils brass phone the NHL office and say the game should be postponed as it's dangerous for the fans to get there and the Devils will take a revenue hit playing in front of a paltry crowd. Concessions will be weak.

 

I doubt the NHL would object

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?

The Blues are a Western Conference team and it's much harder to schedule a make up game.  You have to find a suitable date for both teams that doesn't require a ridiculous amount of travel for St. Louis - that is not going to be easy.

Have you called them and asked about some sort of compensation or alternate game tickets? Or are you just assuming they're a$$holes and don't care thus calling them a second class organization without even finding out what options you have...

I'm sorry but there is no reason for this game to have been postponed. It normally takes me 25 mins to drive to the arena via the nj turnpike, it took me 35 mins and I wasn't even going fast. The roads were fine.

That being said there are under 1,000 people here at the moment haha

Thanks for the update Satans. I remember the first game my wife an I attended when we started dating was a Valentines day game in a snow storm. One of the most fun I've had at a Devils game. No concession lines was also good ;)

I live outside of Philly(Upper Darby) and yeah, I can understand why the Flyers postponed, blizzard or not. The roads down here are a joke and Regional Rail is a mess.

 

Who is in charge of cancelling games from the Devils, the GM or ownership?
