In Topic: Here we go again. New goal song for 14-15

Yesterday, 10:06 AM

They should bring back the old song and let people have their fun. If they want to fill the stadium lower the ticket prices because it's not worth 100+ bucks to go see the Devils play the Panthers in the middle of the year.

 

To give credit to the Devils, our tickets are probably the cheapest along the East Coast until you reach maybe Carolina/Florida... Not sure how much you can scale back the prices or give deals out without coming off as a desperate team, like the Panthers have this year.

 

Also, attendance was pretty decent this year, all things considering. No offensive stars, some pretty boring games, and even when we were out of the playoff picture, we were still 85-90% most nights toward the latter part of the season.

Look, it's not as bad as it could be. At the end of the day, they still offered $100± ticket plans for that section to get it going and our biggest complaint was that it was cheesy and annoying by the end of the season.

 

I'd rather be complaining about this than about the whole fanbase being priced out like Habs, Rangers, or Leafs fans.

 

You know what's really corporate? What the Rangers did: rebuild the "blue seats" as part of the renovation (and make commercials about it). Big slap in the face if I were a season ticket holder. Doesn't change the fact that Rangers tickets are out of most of those peoples' price range... "We removed thousands of season ticket holders' seats to make more room for luxury boxes, and didn't give them a cheaper deal on the lower bowl tickets we forced them to have to buy... BUT WE REBUILT THE BLUE SEATS."

 

I think we're a bit too hard on our management..

The scariest team in our division is imo the blue jackets. They play a devilesque brand of hockey but actually have finishing talent.

 

Yup, as far as matchups go, they were the scariest team in our division THIS year. We had more decisive records/games against Rangers, Penguins, Isles throughout this past season than the Blue Jackets. They're tough and play a good team game and will look a lot better one year in.

The crappy condition of the Eastern teams, by and large, has given us 2-3 year window to do a pseudo-rebuild. I mean, look at our defense and how young it will be by 2015-2016. If the East wasn't such hot garbage last year, most years we would've been a bottom dweller with the record we had. I agree with everyone saying we should make the playoffs this year. A few teams have dipped in terms of strength and skill and the Devils have gotten better.

I tried to not mind the vuvuzela, I understand its use on the "Kill!" chant, which I like. But he ruins a lot of "Let's go Devils!" chants by being offbeat, coming in too late, etc...
