This is great! Just started a new job that will get me out 45 minutes earlier than last year, so I'll make the pregames for the first season in a long time.

In Topic: Can we get some line speculation going here please?

It's going to be tricky.  It really depends on who is healthy, because healthy the Devils have too many guys for a PP right now.  There's not much sense in having a player like Michael Ryder unless you are using him on the power play.  So assuming he's here, he's got to be used on the PP somewhere.  Then you've got the 4 Czech guys - do you put them all on the same PP?  Probably not, but then again, why not?  And what happens with Clowe?  So yeah, someone's got to move first, I think, before I even start to think about this.  

 

Yup, you put Ryder on the power play with someone who's gonna attract considerable amount of attention away from Ryder's skating space: Jagry, obviously, maybe Cammalleri. Give Ryder the time and space, and his wrist shot is as deadly as anyone's in the league; all he's good for really.

Yeah, I'm done hating on Gomez. What his career has spiraled into is punishment enough, for someone who was a very likable player during his time here. If anything, it's a shame..

 

That being said, I hope he doesn't make the team and quietly fades out into the night.

IDK about you but IMO none of the seats in the 100's and 200's are comfortable.  The big issue is the non-existent legroom there.  When I sit my legs should be bending forward or straight down, not back.

 

However, for games such as SCF and other special ones, I think every seats in the house has a good view so I just want to find the cheapest seat that gets me into the building.

 

Didn't really mean comfort literally, I don't think any arena's seating has ever been "comfortable" to sit in haha.. But yeah, I meant the convenience and comfort of knowing where I'll sit/being in the same seats/area.

You're not being a downer, you just got lucky...and that's great. Personally, I'm surprised you found tickets so inexpensively and I'd prefer to have tickets in hand and know exactly when I'm going and where I'm sitting. 

 

This. I gladly pay more for that convenience and comfort.

 

And above all, getting to know the people around you over the course of the season. 41 nights/games is more than the amount of dates someone may go on with their significant other (or even single) over the course of a year haha If you're in a good section, some of the friendships you make are priceless. At the end of the day, the people you sit around have more in common with you than most people in our lives, so that's how I view season tickets, even in a bad year where I could've paid a lot less for games on a day-by-day basis. During the offseason, I've gone to Atlantic City or out and about around New Jersey/NYC with some people I've met the past couple years. Also, I'm at a good age (27) where a lot of people my age are getting season tickets, since we're all one of the first generations (25-30s) who really "grew up" on the Devils.

 

I was lucky in Section 119 this season, one of the most consistently attended season ticketholder sections I've been in over the years; very rarely did anyone around me miss a game or sell them and everybody's up for a hockey discussion. When we play the Rangers or Flyers, maybe 2 or 3 opposing fans could snag tickets in our section. So I pay extra for that, not having to deal with a$$hole rival fans, which was a real issue in some other sections I've been in (214-215: whole rows of Rangers/Flyers fans would find tickets there on StubHub, we'd be surrounded). Staying put in 119!
