#1245425 Since It Would Be A Pretty Epic / Historical Event in Devils History..

Posted by thelastonealive on 12 February 2014 - 05:13 PM

I voted yes. Just a strange gut feeling.

 

If I had to guess where he lands, it's Minnesota or maybe Chicago.

 

Also the discussion of the "secret meeting" has thrown this song into my head that like exactly three people on this board will like but I'm posting it anyway...

#1236959 Devils/Prudential Center Making 'Huge' Announcement Tomorrow a

Posted by thelastonealive on 08 January 2014 - 03:30 PM

Maybe Party Poker outbids PSE&G and we get the Party Poker Power Play, because alliteration.

 

I have half a mind to wear my Full Tilt Poker hockey jersey to the game now. Some men just like to watch the world burn.

#1208989 [Official] Damien Brunner signed to multi-year deal

Posted by thelastonealive on 03 September 2013 - 06:57 PM

Josefson's waiver eligible this year so his days in the minor leagues are likely over.

 

Surely he was just assuming Josefson would be injured.

#1204000 2013-14 schedule thread

Posted by thelastonealive on 18 July 2013 - 10:20 AM

They're not booing, they're kazooooooooing.

 

I like it.

 

Also, I feel like this was missed in Has's post before, but TG mentioned about an hour ago that the game he mentioned yesterday may not be the opener after all, that it was an earlier version of the schedule.  So we may have to wait until later in the season to unleash our vitriol.  All the better, I think. Let opening night be about the current Devils, not the former ones.

#1203665 New Playoff Format/Divisions

Posted by thelastonealive on 15 July 2013 - 09:57 PM

Here's how I understand it:

 

The three best teams from each division make it (Let's say from the east it's Devils/Rangers/Penguins from our division, and Maple Leafs/Canadiens/Bruins from the other). Then, the two best teams from each conference, regardless of division, make it as wild card teams (So you can have a team from each - say Flyers and Panthers - or two from the same division - say Flyers and Blue Jackets).

 

So in the east, let's say five teams from our division make it and three from the other:

 

Devils

Rangers

Penguins

Flyers

Blue Jackets

 

Maple Leafs

Canadiens

Bruins

 

The division winner with the most posts gets the wild card team with the fewest. So lets say in this scenario the Maple Leafs finish first in the East and the Devils second, and the Blue Jackets sneak into the playoffs as the 8th seed:

 

Devils
Rangers

Penguins

Flyers

 

Maple Leafs

Canadiens

Bruins

Blue Jackets

 

Those two groups of four then play the first round of the playoffs - 1vs4, 2vs3. Winners play each other in round two. Winners of the second rounds then play each other in the conference finals, winners there play for the Cup.

 

As an example, round 1 might be:

 

Devils

Flyers

Rangers

Penguins

 

Maple Leafs

Blue Jackets

 

Canadiens

Bruins

 

Making round 2:

 

Devils

Rangers

 

Blue Jackets

Bruins

 

Conference finals then become Devils/Bruins, and so on.

 

The plus sides to this are divisional matchups for the most part in the first two rounds (except if you have a division with five teams making it, in which one of the bottom two teams will be kicked to the other "division playoff" bracket).  Less travel for playoff teams because it's all divisional based.

 

The downsides are you could have a team from the other division winning your "division playoff" (if they make a deal of it or not). No way you can get something like a Devils/Rangers or Devils/Flyers ECF unless one of the two teams is kicked to the other division because of the reasons mentioned above and then get through the first two rounds).

#1202959 Kovalchuk jersey

Posted by thelastonealive on 12 July 2013 - 11:21 PM

Amazingly, the only Kovalchuk merch I own is a player tee with the SCF patch on it (Thankfully I have a Zubrus one too, so I still have a SCF shirt in rotation).

 

I guess being a desperately poor grad student paid off...ish...?

#1202957 Mason Raymond

Posted by thelastonealive on 12 July 2013 - 11:18 PM

I don't think I could handle Mason Raymond on this team, because I would obnoxiously quote that line from Fight Club where Tyler Durden has the convenience store clerk at gunpoint.

 

"The question...RAYMOND...is what did you want to BE?"

#1202271 Season Opener/Kovy Effigy Burning

Posted by thelastonealive on 11 July 2013 - 07:00 PM

I said this after Parise moved on and I'll say it again here...I don't care how angry you are, if you want to get rid of your Kovalchuk merch, the least you could do is donate it instead of burning it or pissing on it or whatever.  It's a waste for us now, but it won't be a waste to some others out there.

#1195500 Concerts

Posted by thelastonealive on 17 June 2013 - 08:30 AM

I saw the National at the Mann Center last week, really awesome.

 

Right now I don't have anything on my concert calendar, but I'm hoping to make the Made in America festival in early September, and I may wind up at the Fall Out Boy/Panic At The Disco show in Philly the week after that as well.
