Any new Reports? Or Reports on Reports? Basically, I'm reporting that I'm going through Reporting withdrawal here.


Until your report on reporting withdrawal is confirmed by TG, SD or Brooksie, I'm calling B.S.

I'm not surprised. NJ has always had the "armpit" affiliation. Sure there are some nice, clean places but let's be honest. The Newark area is a dump...get a little farther out and you have a bunch of suburbs. You have NYC sure...that's about it.

It's not really fair to just quickly skip over the "nice" places like that. The suburbs and other affluent areas are some of the best places in the country to live (Short Hills, Mendem, Alpine, etc...) And those places are big draws for athletes looking to settle down and raise a family.

Maybe this one, from March '07

http://www.hockeyfor...layer-poll.html

To what city would you least like to be traded
Buffalo - 16%
Edmonton - 11%
NY Islanders - 10%

"If somebody says it's not a nice city to be traded to, I would believe them before I played here. Now that I've been here six months, it's unbelievable for hockey and for life. My wife and I are very Happy." - Jaroslav Spacek

No mention of Newark in the top 3 at least.

The funny thing is that even though the Devs get poo-pooed on by the hockey media they seem to be only second to the Red Wings in having the most fans around the country just not the area where the team is based. I've run into mnay folks here in lol who are big Devils fans.

Scott Gomez probably also had difficulty finding bums in NYC and poutine in Montreal.

Nope, he played under Torts.

Gomez also had trouble finding a pick up truck to jump into in the morning when he was looking for work. How hard is it to hang sheet rock?

Well yea, but you can really find affluent areas near almost any large city...so for me that wouldn't be a huge draw.

HA! How great would it be to actually have TG report: "CAD is going through Reporting Withdrawals. When asked for a comment, Lou Lamoriello looked perplexed, then muttered into his Panera lunch 'Everything is Status Quo and Don't worry about my Cap.' "

He'll be one of the many marching in downtown Phoenix for better rights.

I'd love to be a cop on that day and lead the entire parade into the backs of vans.

When asked if he thought Kovalchuk wanted to be a Devil, Lamoriello thought for a moment before saying, "I have nothing to add." Hmmm.

Lou was just busy pondering a spot to dump the bodies after everyone asking about Kovy goes missing or has an accident of some sort.

That does sound pretty suspicious. Something tells me there is something going on behind the scenes with Grossman and Lou.

Eh take what I say with a grain of salt. Usually my political views are the opposite of what I actually say to people.

Most of the times things I say are just to get people to say "uhhh...what?"

Short Hills, Livingston and West Orange are all 15-20 minute drives into the city or a 40 minute train ride. From Alpine your ride is about a 30 minute drive.

Good deals are never good for the Devils and their fans when Los Angeles is involved.
I traded my game worn 96 Avs Lemieux and 93 Nieuwendyk Flames jerseys to my friend in LA for a Ducks Pahlsson, Habs Komisarek, Sabres Zubrus and Kings Vishnovsky. Guess who got the good deal on that one. I did get 450 for the Zubrus though.

Bloomfield Hills is about 20 miles from Detroit. Same situation really. sh!tty city. Nice suburbs. I still think this applies to virtually all larger cities where you have affluent people working and commuting.
