318, with some Ranger fan friends. It'll be nice to see some friendly faces in the crowd...

In Topic: Devil of the Season

Like people have said, I think it's a tough choice between Gomez and Elias. Gomez has probably had more of a "breakout" year, in terms of improvement over prior seasons, but it's hard to overlook the impact of Elias' return (among other factors) in this team's success - even beyond his initial impact, having him on that second line, and thus having 2 lines that are legitimate scoring threats, has been huge.

I guess if I can't choose between them, I only have one choice. I vote for.....




Klee!

So one point for the Devils clinches 5th.


Unless the Flyers win and the Rangers win or lose in OT/SO

I agree with your post, and, I bet if you asked him, so would Derek, there is just two ways to look at every situation. You can't blame someone who disagrees and finds excuses, that's what makes fans passionate.

Welcome aboard, dude, perfect timing for the playoffs, nothing better!


Thanks, good to be here (lurked all year on some other boards, just found this one last week). Of course you can't blame someone who disagrees (hell, sports would be no fun without disagreements - why do you think sports talk radio is so popular), but I've seen the "the only reason the Devils are the least penalized team is because they get away with more" arguments pop up recently on just about every NHL board I read, and it just makes no sense.

In response to elperro's post, I would say yes in regard to discipline. They are very disciplined compared to other teams. However, I do feel their reputation helps sometimes. I've seen instances where they let things go that usually get called against other teams.


And I've seen instances where the refs have let things go against other teams that would usually get called (the Atlanta debacle a few weeks back comes to mind). My point is that, over an 82 game season, those things even out.
