..it would be awesome, but wouldn't the attendance be a bit of an issue? We barely got to 50k yesterday, with help of the Rangers fanbase! 30k more @ MetLife? I would love to see it, but I don't know. The Devils fanbase would have to REALLY come out in droves to fill that baby up.
Todd Cordell said something about the possibility in Red Bull Arena (Harrison, NJ) for a future venue for the Devils, which would be cool.
Bottomline.. I don't think we've seen the last of the Devils in an outdoor game. The event went too well yesterday not to get at least one more invite.
Agree that I think the Devils could be back.
As for MetLife being viable...guess it all depends. If prices scared some people off this time around, you could probably sell a lot of seats for less. This is a pipe dream, but it would be nice if friggin' whatever-they're-calling-Xanadu these days was up and running by the time a game was played there. Give peeps something to do after the game within walking distance.
THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

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.
