Not sure on the legalities of the site.

But, that really is ridiculous that you have to upgrade to the Roku 3, since I believe they are still selling Roku 2's on the Roku website.  I'm sure league is getting some money for this, but all it does is push more people to the non-sanctioned streaming services both paid and free.

There is a better site to use.  Based out of europe, full hd, built in dvr, both home and away feeds, includes AHL, OHL, QMJHL, WHL and I think NCAA but not sure on NCAA, can watch on-demand, cheaper than game center and center ice.  Do not want to post it here, but if anyone wants it, pm me.  No local blackouts, no black outs on national broadcasts either.

In Topic: Season Ticket holder event 10/05

Weber: we have just shy of 9000 season ticket holders. The top teams have 13,000 season ticket holders.

9000 full-season or does that include partials as well?

Brisket cheese fries?  I may have to attend a devils game this season.

In Topic: I hope the Devils never do what the Red Sox did

Couldn't disagree more.

 

There are moments BIGGER than a stupid rivalry. If a truly great was honored by the Devils in a farewell tour, I'd give them a great send off.

 

Hockey players rarely do farewell tours though. Teemu did it, but didn't get the fanfare Jeter did. Baseball is different though.

 

The Devils barely do that with players who have come back after signing elsewhere and I've always hated that. I'd be happy with honoring players when they come back who were important to the team, i.e. Parise, Niedermayer, Gionta, etc. It's sad, and it shows Lou doesn't concern himself with the history of the game and how it important it is to the game and fans. It is contradictory to everything else Lou talks about in terms of respect and doing things the right way. They've been on the wrong side of this for years.

Completely different scenario with honoring your own former players on their return.  

 

Sad thing about the Teemu comparison is he is a MUCH better hockey player than Jeter was a baseball player.  Jeter retiring is not bigger than the rivalry. The rivalry was there before him and will continue after him.  


Chipper is probably a top 10 3rd baseman in MLB history.  He absolutely was one of the greatest at his position.

 

BTW, just to clarify, I think these retirement tours are silly as well.  I just don't think it's fair to criticize the Yankees when they had no involvement in it. Jeter, Rivera, nor the Yankees didn't ask for this.

Yes, they did.  To think otherwise is being naive.  

 

Yes, Chipper was one of the greatest 3b of all-time and a much better player than Jeter.
