I guess someone's got a story, but via Spector, Kovalev's agent says that the NJ Devils never offered a contract and are not amongst the 5/6/ teams left biddin gfor his services....

Hmmmm.....
Spector's Theories

Didn't think we were....


I don't think we we'e. I think this is just an idiotic article.

Langs is the captain, deal with it.

If Doc Emrick, who called yesterday's Bruins-Rangers on NBC, were a national network's lead baseball or football play-by-player, he would be widely known as among the finest in the history of television.

I've been interning at a roller hockey rink in Edison, and every day I hear a guy from Staten Island complain about New Jersey's pizza. Next one is going to get smacked.


Staten Island Guy just probably isn't used to toppings like pepperoni and sausage. He's probably more accustomed to AquaNet and garbage.

That's good. Not only is he a right winger (and we have plenty of those, that's why we let Gionta go), he's also old and inconsistent. If Lou wants to bring a forward, he should go after a center (and we know he is going).

Yes, the Rangers offered him $10 billion per year for 20 seasons.

Oh wait, they have no money.

I just home Devils sign him but i wonder if all that Zajac arbitration story will affect the negotiations because

Lou won't be able to know how much money he has in bank

We have a little over 12 million in cap space and Lou sounded pretty content to do nothing else after we signed the dude from Finland, so I don't know if Zajac's arb hearing will really factor too heavily. I know Lou is concerned about the cap drop next season but whatever Koivu makes + whatever Zajac wins in arb isn't going to come close to making up 12 million dollars.

David Krecji of the Bruins just signed a contract as an RFA worth 3.75 mil a year. So I can't see Zajac exceeding that much in arb.

I hate to say .. Connecticut -- specifically New Haven pizza is the best Pizza in the country hands down. Hands down no contest :noclue: NJ pizza is amazingly awfully -- it runs a close second to pizza hut or shakey's even! It's doughy and the sauce is just off....like it's from a can. You might get lucky if you have a brick oven place... but pretty much folks -- NJ pizza really does suck. You might as well be in the Midwest -- seriously.

Whereabouts in SD, if you remember?

I have a strong affinity for that city, even though I've only been once. Three separate trips to Cali, to three separate cities, and SD was by far my favorite.

Depends on where you go. Around me, Pat's in Pt. Pleasant or P.J.'s in Brick are pretty awesome. Federici's in Freehold might be the best thin-crust on the planet. Aside from them, it's a crap shoot.

Holy crap! A redheaded woodpecker! He's much bigger than I expected! I've never seen one! I thought they were full of it when they said they had one next door because there are red bellied all over... how cute!

Sorry -- forgot what thread I was in :blush: OH! I already ruined this thread with pizza talk... sorry guys!

Hmm.. pizza in San Diego... I've never been there. But I did like this place called Island pizza on Sanibel - the crust was like a cracker... :unsure: I think I've posted this here before.

I'm an old San Diegan myself. It's called Del Mar Pizza, right by the beach. The guy that used to own it was named Tony and he was from NYC. I suspect he doesnt run it anymore however, he was already old, so it may not be the same nowadays. Of course, for the real SD treat, it's Rubios for fish tacos or Robertos for rolled tacos.

Pizza Hut on Rt 9 North after the Mall because it's still open after 25 years.

Vesuvio Belmar

Federici's Freehold

Vic's Bradley Beach

Not pizza but real quick:

I was reliving my past and driving down Ocean Ave with my mother, father, my uncles and aunts who grew up living, working and putting themselves through school at St.Peters and St. Francis in Altoona PA.

All of them lived at Jerry Lynch's, also the Sea Girt in and the Byrne Boys and then would hit Sideroffs at 19th Ave and Ocean Ave for the best hot dogs on the shore.
