A wannabe Stevens who never matured into an intellectual who can lead a team.

#1156564 Sutter (aka The Idiot) Back Where He Belongs

I've grown apathetic towards Sutter. He did some good things for this franchise although the fallout was terrible.

#1152997 Krys Barch Twitter Rant

Posted by Devils Pride 26 on 30 September 2012 - 10:52 PM

Krys Barch is not making $7.5 million in his career. No one like that is playing 15 seasons either. He'll be lucky to play 8 years at league min. With each lockout, he has lost a year, and there is no guarantee that players like him have jobs after it. These guys usually play year-to-year deals.

And any amount you come up with, take into account taxes and a lot of other fees and expenses one has. The professional NHL career is a short one for your average player. That's why guys who take hometown discounts or take less to play for a contender don't get enough credit.

I'm not saying these guys don't have it good, but many don't have it as well as you think. The twitter world though is not the best place to open up, especially when talking about money.

I do see your point, but I do not agree. We have to pay taxes too. Admittedly, I am not a tax expert. Yet according to this: https://www.calcxml....skn=#calcoutput

500k equates to paying 137.3k in taxes over a year. Through 15 years it becomes $2.06M and after taxes he makes $5.4M
10 years: after taxes $3.6M
5 years: after taxes $1.8M
For Joe Dirte making 75k a year, he pays $7,455 in taxes a year. After paying that for 40 years, the money after taxes comes out to $2.7M over his career of 40 years.

To match Joe Dirte - Barch needs to make $1M over 35 years. Or in other words, 27k a year over 35 years. He could make that being a janitor or a desk job answering phone calls

In conclusion: I have no sympathy

I really think its unfair to call them losers and everything cause they could still be set for life compared to us if they would have budget their money... No one would take a 20% paycut and be happy with it, actually take 20% off anyones budget and its gonna fvck them up.

Thoses guys made it to the nhl its a big deal and they had to work super hard and make sacrifices to get there, plus its a dangerous sport any game could be their last and if your carreer is ending and that youre not prepared for thst thats an even bigger money drop for you.

Sucks for them, almost all had a chance for a free education. If they took it, no reason they can't pursue a career like the rest of us. If they didn't, sucks for them

#1148338 Devils Fans in the NHL

Posted by Devils Pride 26 on 21 August 2012 - 02:25 PM

A lot of it just comes with a pride standpoint of being from New Jersey. People who live in Monmouth, Ocean and the Shore area seem to take a lot of pride in the area itself, ie. organizations such as Benny Go Home. It's tough to be so prideful in your area and state and then turn around and be a wannabe guido NYR fan. Brick and Manasquan have really become NJD strong holds. A lot of it has to do with being North Jersey transplants as well. Very, very few Philly fans in Monmouth county. Tough to explain considering we get both Philly and NY stations.

Monmouth County has a HUGE Devils population.

Amen. Central Jersey does absolutely exist. I am 45 minutes from Newark, an hour from Philly, and 15 minutes from the beach. If that is not Central Jersey than I don't know what is.

#1147372 Devils sign Bobby Butler

Posted by Devils Pride 26 on 12 August 2012 - 06:43 AM

So to replace Parise, this is what get? Awesome.

Don't be a bone head. There is no replacing Parise. There is also not a single negative about this move.

Wheres the third option of pay him fairly?

That would be the extremely easy option and ruin the thread.

I'm a Marty loyalist. I stood by him when everyone was calling for Moose to start Game four in the first round. Marty is the Devils, he is New Jersey. He gets all of our paradoxes with the Rangers and such. Pay him what he wants. FFS, he's one of the reasons the team is still playing in NJ let alone a state of the art arena.

Posted by Devils Pride 26 on 09 May 2012 - 12:19 AM

I was rooting very hard for the Caps at the start of the series, but seeing the way these guys pin balled Philly, I have no doubts they can do it to whoever they play. Just rooting for the series to go 7 games and let the winner win in the 11th OT.

Posted by Devils Pride 26 on 01 May 2012 - 10:01 PM

All their paychecks are signed by the same guy who signs the Flyers' paychecks. Comcast owns all. #promoteyourproduct #conflictofinterests #businessethics

These threads can suck it. Marty is our franchise, so some loyalty. I'd be fine riding and dying with Marty.
