That's a cool photo of the Rock you have in your signature. Was it taken on opening night? And can you post it in a larger file? I'd like to have a copy, if possible.

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.

The Newark Planning Board approved the old buildings (like the ones along Broad Street) to be renovated and retrofitted to have lofts on the top floors of them. As I've said, take the overhangs off of them and powerwash them and the streets will look great.

"Postage Not Included" over at HFBoards, took a tour of The Rock and he had some info on Triangle Park and the entry plaza.

"They are planning to start construction soon on the park and plan to have a giant (around 20 foot) Prudential Rock at the front of it. They said this is planned for next season, but he seemed doubtful since no construction was under way."


"There was some mention of putting some type of statue of Brodeur or Stevens by the PNC entry tower (where they placed the Pru symbol and Devils symbol mid-way last season) after they knock more buildings down, but he seemed to indicate that this has not been finalized or set in stone."


On another note, he said that Vanderbeek's office is right next to the restaurant and that the tour guide said that most of the players will be at the party on Friday.

I was at the Alicica Keys concert (suprised my girlfriend) last night @ The Rock. The only thing that were new/different was that the skybridge is almost done; they have glassed it in and have brick around the garage entrance.

You know how they have people who are caretakers of the Stars on the Walk of Fame in California by washing and cleaning them weekly? Well I nominate PK to clean the pigeon crap from Scotty's brow on a weekly basis ... :koolaid:

So what are everyones' guesses on the poses for the Marty and Stevens statues? Stevens lifting the Cup or leveling someone? Marty stacking the pads or making a glove save? Tons of possibilities.

I'd like to see Stevens' hit on Lindros forever immortalized along with a vintage half-butterfly glove save for Marty.

I like Stevens lifting the Cup and Marty with the glove save. But does anyone else feel like we should at least wait till Marty retires? Why jinx him with a statue with a few years to go?

Not yet for Marty. A Stevens statue would be cool. I don't know about it holding the cup though. That may anger the Hockey Gods. And I DO NOT want to make them angry! We would not like them when they're angry. (See the curse) I think more of a defensive posture or creaming someone who would be too obscure to quite make out who it is.
And leave room for more statues to be built in a pattern like actually seen on the ice. :evil:



... Well I nominate PK to clean the pigeon crap from Scotty's brow on a weekly basis ... :koolaid:

I'm sure she'll keep a certain part of the statue well polished anyway!

The Scott Stevens statue should be the one where he first held up the SC in 1995. That would be the best since it was the Devils first SCC.

I'd be fine with a Stevens statue. but I still think there needs to be, maybe, some other moments in Devils history set in stone. The first I think is McMullen. I'd love to a snapshot of the podium and him behind it annoucing the team coming to Jersey.

The other is MacLean (is it with Daneyko? and Muller?) arms over each other shoulders skating down the ice in Chicago, making the playoffs for the first time.

I second that! Anything immortalizing that moment would be sweet!



I think if would be cool if they lined the sides of Triangle Park with these statues. A Marty statue could wait till after he's done playing, but they could get started with Stevens, McMullen, and something with that '88 game.

I just feel the '88 game was such a cornerstone for this team, one probably not superseeded again until 1995. Most people don't know that about the franchise, I think it'd be great to have that...

Honor the '88 team that night. Bring back the old timers, the staff, wear the green jerseys and put up the statue of MacLean arm and arm...at the base of the statue possibly have a plaque commemorating the moment/list the roster.

I agree with all of your statements. Maybe we should do what LA is doing over in the Promotions thread, and send an e mail to the Devils with our ideas.
