In Topic: Is tanking the right move?

Let's just hope he doesn't do something like trade assets for another vet.

i will say though, there is an exception to the booing.  i would say booing your team is ok if they just aren't trying anymore.  without hussle and working hard, it becomes disrespectful to the fans who paid they're hard earned money to watch a profession that apparently allows you to not try anymore

 

That's a fair point although I'd still probably hold in the boos because there are most likely a few guys out there who are trying really hard to win. They don't deserve the same treatment.

 

Now if there's a guy named BRUUUUUUUUCE out there I'm all for it.


I think JD is just saying that he could never root against the guys on the ice wearing the Devils' logo. I don't think he literally meant 'booing'. I could be wrong of course.

 

No you were exactly right. I've had the logo tattooed on my arm for almost 20 years (1996). They're like family to me.

Okay, Mr. Positive.  :)


 

I don't think it makes you a bad fan either, because essentially you are rooting for long-term success. I just think that during a game itself, one should not root for their team to lose. That is just against the essence of fandom and supporting one's team. 

 

Absolutely agree with you there. I could never boo the guys on ice no matter what the situation is. If you aren't there to support the team then don't show up. 

 

That being said, I hope we lose a lot of games.

I'd be happy with a top 5-7 pick this year. It doesn't make you a bad fan to hope your team loses and gets a good pick in the draft. It's just the way pro sports are these days.

"I hope the Lakers lose every game," Johnson told reporters. "Because if you're going to lose, lose. And I'm serious."

 

 

Lose now, be better later.

In Topic: Is it time to trade Cory Schenider?

16 December 2014 - 07:20 PM

Warning, paranoia ahead...

Only reason I would consider trading him is because something he said when he signed the extension left me feeling a little worried about his desire to play in nj. He said, "There are only so many starting jobs in the NHL". I know I'm probably reading too much into that but that isn't exact reassuring. I know he could have tested free agency but maybe he thought this was the best deal he could have gotten so close to his home (Massachusetts). It's not like he wanted to be traded here to begin with.

Either way I like Cory and unless he makes it clear he doesn't like it here I'd like to hang onto him. Maybe just play Kinkaid a little more often now that we know he can handle it.

Of course if we can put a package together including him for Edmontons 1st this year I'd consider it. They'd probably want too much though like Schneider + Severson + Henrique.
