#1210185 Devils' preseason opener vs. Rangers Monday will be on MSG

Posted by Devil Dan 56 on 15 September 2013 - 11:22 AM

ahh i would of liked to see a devils scrimmage... must be nice to be a ranger fan, they always have coverage ex. im sure that more then one o their pre season games are televised mean while only one of ours is.


That's what happens when a team and television station share an owner. Other plusses to being a Ranger fan include an oversized ego and the constant belief that 1994 happened last week.

#1209042 What's your favorite hockey movie?

Posted by Devil Dan 56 on 04 September 2013 - 09:51 AM

Slap Shot, Miracle, Youngblood, Goon, Mystery Alaska.


And Sudden Death for the absurdity of it all. I mean a fight scene with the Penguins mascot?!? Classic.

#1206559 Brodeur vs Roy.. vote!

Posted by Devil Dan 56 on 08 August 2013 - 11:56 AM

I agree, Lundqvist is very good, I just don't think he'll be remembered as widely, or on the same level as the Big Three.  I really don't see anyone playing right now that will.  There's something special about those three.


If they ever truly regulate equipment, goaltending in general will be much more entertaining and diverse. The pads now are all built to the same butterfly drop-and-let-the-puck-hit-you style. When goalies are forced to move and react like they did, the guys like Roy, Hasek, and Marty really rise to the top.

#1206041 Henrique?

Posted by Devil Dan 56 on 01 August 2013 - 02:18 PM

Devils’ Adam Henrique “not worried” contract isn’t done yet, “It’s just a mattter of time” 




This is not conducive to the panic we are trying to have here.


Now, where were we? Ah, yes... :headless chicken: :headless chicken: :headless chicken:

Oh all i did was mention what you guys tells me was the right thing to do since thats the way Lou does it usually. So basically Zajac was a bad move then? Cause really it cant be both apparently.


Nope, just showing once again that you're 'Lou ALWAYS does so and so', like most absolutes, is wrong.

"Pretty crazy how a player can just leave like that, huh Anton? It'd be a shame to see that happen again. But then again, Russia is so nice this time of year... " - Lou, as he nudges his desk phone towards Volchenkov.

#1201407 Brodeur on the cover of NHL14 !!!

Posted by Devil Dan 56 on 09 July 2013 - 03:10 PM

I don't know why you guys feed LD.

He's like Grandpa Simpson. Generally speaking a nice guy, a little senile though, often blurts out random and irrelevant things. I just read his posts and go "Oh LD, he's off his rocker again!".


"I needed a new heel for my shoe, so, I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. 'Give me 5 bees for a quarter', you'd say..."

#1198876 Devils trade #9 pick in 2013 Draft to Vancouver for Cory Schneider

Posted by Devil Dan 56 on 01 July 2013 - 08:19 PM

If he was just a young prospect I'd agree with you, but he's not, he's been in the league for a few years now and while he's not a proven commodity he's unquestionably better than Brodeur now. If the Devils got Lundqvist or Rinne or Quick would you have to make him earn it in training camp? No and Schneider was just as good if not better over the last couple years

No one said he isn't better. It has nothing to do with that. You don't want to just throw the leader of the locker room onto the bench like that. You have to give him the chance to defend his spot and let Schneider earn it. It's not a video game. The guys on the team are real people. You risk players taking sides and splitting the room.

Are you a Devils fan like me or a Marty kool aid drinker?

A devils fan who hates the franchise goalie, general manager, and owner. Please.

#1197006 2013 Stanley Cup Finals

Posted by Devil Dan 56 on 25 June 2013 - 11:02 AM

I saw a lot of Chicago jerseys in the crowd, and I could think was that there HAD to be a few people actually from Chicago, long time fans, who took money they shouldn't spend out of the bank and drove all night to Boston, and now have a story that they will never forget. That was one of the most amazing turn-arounds I've ever seen.

Posted by Devil Dan 56 on 24 June 2013 - 05:30 PM

They should do a episode of 30 for 30 on the 95 Devils.


They should, but we all know it'd be SOOOO boring because the trap killed hockey and yadda yadda 94 forever.

#1196554 NHL Draft E-mail

Posted by Devil Dan 56 on 22 June 2013 - 01:51 PM

Colin when you say stuff like STHers are the most loyal, it really makes you look like a dope. Just bc you can afford season tix doesn't make you a better fan.

Other teams fans are winning lotto tix so devil's fans are being shut out like ir or not. And I a agree with ghdi in the other thread let the draft be a reward for sthers not 4 tix for every sth who wants them.

The difference is that the season ticket holders put thousands of dollars down plus (potentially) 44 games of concessions and merchandise.

It's not about who a better fan is. They can't give tickets out based on who thinks they are better fans.

You're argument is essentially that you think you deserve to go because you want it more than other people. It's an incredibly childish view.
