#1322596 Alternate History -- Lou doesn't trade for Schneider

Posted by Devils Pride 26 on Today, 12:29 PM

The good news is the Schneider deal is the only thing keeping us out of the basement. The bad news is the Schneider deal is the only thing keeping us out of the basement.

#1322549 2015 NHL Off-season Thread

Posted by Devils Pride 26 on 04 July 2015 - 10:34 AM

Insane that Saad and ROR are given those contracts. They haven't shown enough to warrant those figures imo.

Man if you're a young guy coming to the end of your RFA years, you must just have dollar signs in your eyes.

I can almost hear the next lockout inching closer and closer.

The money is just shifting from over 30 UFA monster deals to young players who have a chance to living up to the contract. Think the league is in better shape this way.

#1316823 A Demographics Poll!: Devils or Rangers

Posted by Devils Pride 26 on 15 May 2015 - 07:08 PM

Monmouth. 85% of my friends are Rag fans. General population I'd say 60/40 Rags because we are a Brooklyn/Staten Isalnd "retirement" community.

It's really sickening.

Depends on who you ask really. Was in Colts Neck the other day and talking to a Ranger fan and mentioned how everyone was a Devils fan. Majority of the kids I coach are ranger fans

#1314945 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs thread

Posted by Devils Pride 26 on 27 April 2015 - 06:19 PM

In 2012, I was a full-time college freshman working for minimum wage. Most of the people I knew were in the same boat at best. I tried to go to the last Devils-Rangers regular season game at home that year and just couldn't afford it. But a lot of people I know (or knew then) went to a lot of games in 2012. I know I didn't hear of anyone I knew personally selling off their tickets. Not one. Not as if I come from a hockey hot-bed and knew a hundred Devils fans who all held onto tickets or something, though. I just can't imagine having tickets in hand and deciding not to go to a single game in the first round. The point, the statement was "most" of the real fans sold off their tickets. I'm not saying you or Derek aren't real fans and didn't have every good reason not to go, but to think that most of those "real" Rangers fans were selling off their tickets is a reflection of what kind of fanbase exists over there.


Oh stop, we've seen it here before first hand. Rangers fans are doing the EXACT same thing a lot of Devils fans did around 2003. Save the money on the early round games to help pay for the later rounds that have come to be expected.

Only difference is the Devils don't have NY on their chest and the demand for the tickets aren't the same. The Devils had non sell outs in early rounds while Rangers sold out and turned a profit in some ways.

2012 ECF is totally different than a 2015 first round series. Can't stand the Rangers but calling out these guys is bush league

#1302562 Brodeur Interview with Gulitti

Posted by Devils Pride 26 on 30 January 2015 - 01:45 AM

Last quote there is a great one. Can't imagine how tough that must have been for him. It's easy for us sitting here to say Marty doesn't have it anymore and Cory gives us a better chance to win, but not for legends of the game.

In the end, it really goes to show how much of a Devil Marty really is. Realized he still wanted to play, and didn't want to screw it up for the long term for NJ.

#1280679 2014-2015 Around the league thread

Posted by Devils Pride 26 on 06 October 2014 - 09:04 PM

Stop me if you've heard this one before - black kid in hockey thought to have a bad attitude

The tri/sd saga heats up for 2014/15 as tri calls sd a racist before the season even starts. Back to you in the booth, Steve. 

 

Just kidding guys. Not trying to stir the pot, couldn't pass that one up.

#1268292 So Apparently The Rumor Is Kovy Could Be Coming Back

Posted by Devils Pride 26 on 12 June 2014 - 10:07 PM

Stored my Kovalchuk t shirt in the bottom of some stupid never used drawer. Pulled it out today to find a fabric softener sheet tucked inside. What does that tell me? He'll be back, and he'll be fresh.

I'm in favor of bringing back "You suck" if only to yell at fellow Devils fans who aren't rooting for the rangers to be eliminated as soon as possible

Totally unfair. Unless you are saying Brodeur is not a great one. I can't think of one series where Brodeur ever found a way to win a series by himself or was the big difference for an underdog Devils playoff team.

Hate the Rangers. Hate Lundqvist, but let's not bring him down unfairly.

2003 Ottawa comes to mind right off the bat. People talk about Hank like he's a tremendous big game player or the second coming. Even the "king" moniker. What exactly has he won? In ten years in the league he has one trip to the conference finals where he was out dueled by a 40 year old

#1263713 This off seasons UFA's and realistic possible trades

Posted by Devils Pride 26 on 07 May 2014 - 10:39 PM

We should do what we should have done a couple seasons ago and get Jussi Jokinen. Pitt got him from CAR for a conditional 6th or 7th round pick. Insane.


Hard to nitpick things like this, 28 other teams could be saying the same thing. Playing here is a hell of a lot different than Pittsburgh.

Well it's almost too late in that regard - Parise is having the best playoffs of his career. He's really tearing it up, but unfortunately Parise and Suter alone can't make an average team elite.


Maybe personal numbers and such, but for team accomplishments and such I hope he never gets another trip to the finals and gets knocked out ASAP.
