Exactly.. I hate benefits I can't use, because then they aren't benefits.. I realize it's tough to plan an event around a practice but I really hate having to miss this thing again

Exactly. It would be nice for this organization to understand the people who are buttering their bread have to work.

 

I'm an STH and there's no way i could go today, just like there's no way i can go to every game per season. Personally, i have no idea how people find the time to go every game, every event. Life has to get in the way sometimes, whether you have a job, family or you're a normal human being.

Was this the only option they gave STH? Wasn't their a skate on the practice rink with the players in the evening? A team BBQ at night?

 

There was some research done last week that the Devils offer the most STH autograph events of any team in the league. They do understand that people have to work. It's why this isn't the only option.

No, this is not the only option, but it's also one less option to choose from and where's the "benefit" in that? Having anything at this time during the day M-F isn't an ideal option to begin with. People work. Kids are in school. Most people in this situation are going to not choose this option ahead of time as they know already they can't make it or can't take the risk in thinking they can.

I am almost positive this organization can't win. The Devils have played every weekend all season. I'd say more than half the weekends there has been two games for them. There has simply been no weekend practices to do this. I wonder how many Saturday or Sunday practices the Devils have had all season, anyway.

Part of me thinks the reason they put this during a weekday is because it IS going to be the most popular event choice so they don't want 10000 sth's all there. Plus it is honestly tough to do it during a weekend with all the games that get played Saturday.

You're right though, there are other options including the team skate which was in the evening and the BBQ which was on the weekend. I'm still annoyed I can never get to a practice though cause that would be cool. Plus the other thing is they only give you about two weeks notice so even if you were inclined/able to take off it's be hard.

What else is there to do between when the practice ends and the autograph session begins? Think I saw something about the practice lasting till 12 but the autographs weren't till 1:30.

Oh well, this is when the team has practice, and they happened to open this one up for season ticket holders to attend.  It seems to me that you think they should have just not offered this option because if you can't go, then nobody should be able to.

The biggest problem with these events is the fact they give very little notice for them.
