#1327527 2015 NJDevs FF Draft: Draft Complete!

Posted by aylbert on 04 September 2015 - 03:47 PM

I couldn't figure why the site would have crashed, I mean Chris Lams really? Then I remembered...you guys its always you

Good afternoon. In less than an hour, drafters like LOTCB will join others from around the country. And you will be launching the largest forum draft in the history of devilsrule33. "devilsrule33." That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests to block MantaRay. Perhaps it's fate that today is the Fourth of September, and you will once again be drafting around DevilsMJ... Not around redruM, RSC, or Aylbert... but from CRASHER's conference calls. We are fighting for our right to draft. To exist. And should MaskedFan win the day, the Fourth of September will no longer be known as an NJDevs4978 holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: "We will not go quietly into VivaLaFlamme!" We will not auto-pick without a fight! We're going to draft on! We're going to say Hi, I'm VALUE! Today we celebrate our Draft Day!

#1216627 Larsson

Absolute silliness.


You never bail on a defensive prospect like Larsson.   Give him time to develop, let him make his mistakes...  he needs time and space.

I'm sure it's been brought up on page 57 of the 72 page UFA thread


I somewhat agree with that sentiment.   I much preferred when had topics as topics, and self-policed a bit...   Now, the general thought is to cram everything in one topic, and have multiple conversations going on at once.  


And I get it, we don't want 50 topics of every possible player that could sign here...  but at the same time, the idea for the comprehensive thread came from the trade deadline day and free agency... where there are signings/trades every 5 minutes or so...  that had nothing to do with the Devils.

#1197274 Non New Jersyians/International Posters- Why Did You Choose the Devils

Posted by aylbert on 26 June 2013 - 12:09 PM

I'm 13 months and from just outside NE Philly.   All of my friends are Flyers fans, the people from daycare host Flyers day, my neighbors have orange hockey nets and their sticks are scribbled with garbage (Flyers).    When I see them playing, I like to carry a broom into the action... my way of saying the Devs are going to sweep the season series.


This was a pic on my way to my first game in January when we beat the Caps in OT...  I had less hair then because I was pissed at my dad for not bringing me to Flyers game where we shut them out 3-0...  :P

#1177642 Buyers or Sellers on 4/3/2013?

Posted by aylbert on 11 March 2013 - 11:01 AM

This is the only way I see Lou as a seller this year:


I receive a report that says frozen orange juice inventories will be low.

I buy buy buy...  inflating the market greatly; but keep buying them up.  


This is where Lou comes in... he starts selling the futures?  That crazy guy, he lost his mind!  FIRE LOU.

Then, the actual market report comes out...  flat!?! 


BAM!  Lou then covers his position...  and once again, I'm out 394mm and my buddy is left in a gorrilla suit - again.  This happens often. 

Lou has bested me.   In Lou We Trust!

#1176029 It's time, Who gets fired?

Posted by aylbert on 05 March 2013 - 11:57 PM

You guys are full of sh!t.


3 weeks ago we had the best goalies in the league with articles written about how great Moose is in his role;  we had a no-name defense coming together and chipping in for points, and our lines were looking good.    


Now, we should fire everyone and reboot?   It's a damn slump, they happen.     The biggest slump is with Hedberg who is a great backup, but has never been labeled 'the guy' in nets...   we need to have our #1 goalie back so we don't get deflated and uninspired when we drop easy goals.  When we aren't playing scared, and get the cycle going, we get our bounces...  and we win.   Simple.


Fire no one, ride out the storm, emerge stronger.

#1169550 Kovy need to ride the bench

Posted by aylbert on 08 February 2013 - 08:52 AM

Speaking of stats, did you happen to see Kovy, with an easy chance to get an empty netter, try and dish it off to Ryan Carter?


I know players love their stats; but when your contact is guaranteed for your professional life...  you're not playing for your next contract first, you're playing for your team first.   I think it reflects Kovy's maturity that he can now dish off easy goals to players who will benefit from it; if we are in the meaningless last seconds with a 2 goal lead. 


If we are up by 1 one though...  I want Kovy to bury it.   Ice the game, before trying to hand out charity goals out.

#1156485 Next Time Cory Booker Wants to Call VBK a Fraud . . .

Posted by aylbert on 14 November 2012 - 12:44 PM

This is really more of a status message no? No article, etc

Here's an article I guess to at least prevent the need for google if you don't follow baseball...


I want to know how Loria can face the people of South Florida, the taxpayers who subsidized 70 percent of his $515 million ballpark in Miami.

I want to know how he will market his team to free agents after trading three that he signed for a combined $191 million only a year ago.

I want to know what he will tell star right fielder Giancarlo Stanton, who tweeted after learning of the trade, “Alright, I’m pissed off!!! Plain & Simple.”
