#1263348 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs thread

Posted by Devils Pride 26 on 03 May 2014 - 09:17 PM

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.

I don't root against Parise out of hate for the guy, I root against him because I want to see his best success coming here. I want players who leave NJ to feel like they made one of the worst decisions of their lives.

Yeah, he gets my appreciation for what he's give the team but that's where I draw the line. We have too many defensemen, he is one of the "too many". There are plenty of other Dmen in the A who can be a 7th Dman. Alexander Urbom comes to mind and then there is the case of Adam Larsson. I do feel that the time Larsson has spent in the A has benefit him as he has performed well while being in Albany. Some guys in our D corps have to go to make room for the younger guys pushing the depth chart.

In an unrelated note, Clowe is only DTD, thank god.

I don't buy I single thing the Devils say about injuries. Remember when Parise was DTD, how about Martin, Clowe the first time. I'm sure there's many more I'm forgetting

Thats not the point of them still testing it, its about Lou getting options for himself knowing they could walk. Going blindly in negociations and waiting last minute when a guy can just tell himself "well im gonna wait a week or 2 and see if i can get more" Lou has put them in that situation where he had absolutely no leverage. What other GM took that risk? Look around the league and look at all the top players that we're about to be unrestricted, they were all signed during the season or prior. You simply can't take that risk unless somehow you REALLY have to. 


So now rumours about something Lou related has to be taken like its cash? but when there's trade rumours that the fans are not up for they call it bullsh!t cause nothing leaks from Lou.


lol this fanbase is so much fun. They just really take what they want when it's working for them and ignore the rest when it doesnt.


plus even if its true. Lou can be a hardballer when he wants to, you think Getzlaf and Perry's agent didnt think he could get more in the summer? Somehow they got it done. And so did all those other guys around the league. 


Plus the financial thing excuse doesnt really work cause the refinancing was still not done and settle at the trade deadline and Lou offered a good deal, he was in the same financial situation than before the season or in the middle of it. 

Rules are hell of a lot different now than they were then. Lou could've given Parise a blank check and it would not have mattered. He was leaving. Go ahead and rip Lou all you want for not trading him. Anyone who wants to win does the same thing there, I don't care if I knew for sure he was walking, I'm not trading him at that deadline.  


YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME - if GMs had your mindset it would be nothing but perpetually building for the future.

#1244299 The Devils and PDO

Posted by Devils Pride 26 on 05 February 2014 - 09:40 PM

At this point it's no longer luck and has more to do with the players and system. The system generates a ton of low percentage attempts off the cycle i.e. lasers from Sal blasting shin pads into scrap metal. It looked a hell of a lot better with Parise, who thrives in this system getting in front for tips and rebounds and to a lesser extent clarkson. We also had Kovalchuk who changed the dynamic at times as a guy who can bring the puck in with speed off the breakout. We don't have either of those types right now.

It's really not the systems fault or the players. Debo is getting the absolute most from this team of spare parts. We simply don't have the horses right now. I think for us to be competitive, this is how we have to play

#1244188 Two Interesting Articles on Deboer

Posted by Devils Pride 26 on 05 February 2014 - 09:47 AM

Sadly, Kovy is exactly what this team is missing right now. That long contract, no. But definitely his ability to score. Then again, if we still have Kovy we probably don't have Jagr and/or Zidlicky

#1240979 Stadium Series Game: Are you going?

Posted by Devils Pride 26 on 24 January 2014 - 04:02 PM

The NHL almost always misses with musical performances and this is another bad one. What age demographic are they pleasing with this? 45+ at least? A modern New Jersey band like Gaslight Anthem would seem to be perfect for this type of thing, i can't imagine their fee would be on par with Cee-loo Green if not less.

Half the guys in the band are Devils fans and half are Rangers fans, they even made custom devils/rangers t-shirts during that playoff run a few years back. Missed opportunity!

Gaslight is sick

#1230673 Would This Ever Fly In The NHL?

Posted by Devils Pride 26 on 05 December 2013 - 03:06 PM

It's about being smart. Going to sporting events is like a rite of passage. I remember being 5-6 and hearing foul language. It's the nature of the beast. You hear things, you learn about it, and if you have good parents they'll tell you not to repeat things you hear or you'll get a spanking (if we really want to get heated, this is a good argument).

Now being a 20 something on the other side of the coin, there's a responsibility not to look like a fycking moron in the place. I always take a good look around during the game making sure there aren't kids around. When they are, you try and set an example and keep it respectful. F bombs I front of children are just classless. I'll heckle teams and players , part of that is the fun of being at the arena. But people need to use common sense. I wouldn't want to be swearing up a storm in front of CRs daughter or anything but I don't think any parent brings a child to game without expecting to hear some foul language. Morale of the story: use some fvcking common sense
