Anybody that complains about the Kovalchuk deal is shortsighted. Of course Lou says that our goal is to win a Stanley Cup every season, but it's postering. Lou signed Kovy to set this team up for what it should be a few years from now. A fast, offensive minded team. We're not that yet, and we won't be for a little while, but he's compiling the pieces that he can. Kovalchuk, Josefson, Henrique, Hopefully Parise. You have great D prospects coming up on the back end. This team is going to be fast and totally different than it is now. He's doing the right thing in disguise.
Kovalchuk isn't meant to fit into the "Devils System". He's supposed to be the start of a new era, and those starts are often rough. I mean hell, he's a year and a half into a 15 year deal.
I missed it for the longest time when it was gone. When we scored against the Isles during that season opener a few years back and they played it again, I almost lost it. I love that song when the Devils score. It just feels right. I like being able to look up YouTube clips of the glory days and hearing the same song. It's nice, and I'd be heartbroken if we moved away from it again.
I grew up with it, and when I have a kid to share Devils' hockey with, I hope he gets to as well. I don't care what the artist did, that's not what the song was written about. Not to mention we were the first to use it in a sports setting.
