Well that's my last nerve.

No news, no reporters talking to us... just nothing. No kinds of updates from the Devils about ANYTHING. But of course they have no problem sending e-mails and letters and phone calls to try to get us to buy tickets. I am officially OUT OF HERE until he signs. Have fun everyone.


Come on man. Lou isn't being quiet about this because he doesn't want the fans to know what's going on, he's being quiet because he doesn't want to give other teams information that could be useful to them.

What does their marketing activities have to do with the Kovalchuk deal? Do you think Lou is writing those letters to you personally?

I can't believe people are actually making decisions about tickets based on whether or not the Devils sign Kovalchuk. WTF kind of fan would do that? Not a very good one. The Devils will be a great team with or without Kovalchuk, and they're capable of winning another cup with or without Kovalchuk. If you're getting butt hurt because you grew attached to a guy we had for a couple of months, you're a terrible fan.

Hey, LA is trashy too. The air might be cleaner in NJ too.

Yeah I went to 36 home games last year and bought thousands of dollars of merch and post on three different internet message boards for the Devils every day... I'm a terrible fan. Thanks.
I apologize for being frustrated.

My disappointment towards this organization is based off of WAYYY more than just the Kovalchuk thing. This isn't even a percentage.

Wrong. I've been to the Borgata, and the Wynn and the Belagio are much nicer, with better restaurants and hotter cocktail waitresses to boot. Plus the club at the Borgata is super cheesy.

AC is not a selling point for NJ so far as I'm concerned. Total friggin' dump and one of the scarier cities I've been in.

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.

and I'm not so sure what's scary about AC. at least compared to other NJ cities. yes, it's a rotted out husk of a dive, but it's got nothing on Paterson or Camden or Trenton or most of the residential areas of Newark.

What are you expecting? The ball is in Kovy's court. Do you think Lou is going to post transcripts of his conversations with Grossman? Are you expecting Kovy to tweet his innermost secrets while on the pooper?

I win $1,000 every time I go to Borgata. It's my favorite place on earth.

Are you following me around the board disagreeing with me? lol.

Most of what I'm saying is just incoherent blabber I know that. I'm just frustrated that nothing is happening... and for some reason I can't stop checking websites all day.

The casinos in LA make Atlantic City look like Dubai.

But most of the rest of LA is something that NJ can't compete with. Especially the areas that Kovalchuk would live.

The smog isn't really as bad as its made out to be. No worse than NJ. The traffic is the biggest clusterfvck I've ever witnessed in my life.

But the weather... just can't be beat.

It's been 68-75 degrees here during the day in South Bay for 8 weeks straight.

I beg to differ. When I would go down to LA from NorCal, my throat would be burning and eyes watering. However, when I would be around the NYC/NJ area, none of those things would happen. Then again, I have to admit my bias in that I seriously hate LA.

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

i was mostly amusing myself with this anecdote, because i figured that most here did not even realize that LA has casinos, and so would think i was talking about las vegas. but los angeles does have several casinos. i've not been to any of them, but they are notoriously terrible, as maxpower and risky have attested.
