These games will happen. 2 or 3 shots of ours rang off the pipes at key times, just really bad luck. That could've been the difference between 4-0 start and 3-1. Our overall team game was pretty awful at times and yet we were a post or two from otherwise gaining the momentum to possibly win the game.

 

Regardless, I wouldn't trade these first 4 games for any other start, the team looks great, they're doing great things. Time to bring it home.

 

It's worth mentioning, Andy Greene looked particularly awful last night from the start of the game til the end, which was pretty strange...

This was also posted in the marketplace section too. Thing is that the tickets are available either only on your phone or will call. If they do will call the question is will they check if you have a college ID? No one knows at this point.

I personally do not think so but you never know.

 

I highly doubt it, I think it's just so you can't resell it on StubHub, which makes sense.

Not that I wouldn't love seeing him have an off-year at top dollar, and watching Ranger fans freak out and turn on him as a result...

 

Doesn't take much. I see all the "Fire AV!" and "MSL is a bum!" already, only took 3 games.

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

16 October 2014 - 08:44 AM

This a complete overreaction and exaggeration.

 

They got rid of the song because it was embarassing to have thousands of man-children chant in unison "you suck."  This fanbase seems to have a record number of individuals who act like complete man-children at the game and to prove it when Nashville pulled the song this year for the same reasons, the fanbase just moved on and didn't flip and accuse their ownership of everything from "policing" them to "taking away their civil rights."  This overreaction is such a NJ Devils fan thing it's beyond embarassing and I wish they would just have no goal song at all just to make everyone miserable and to end the endless arguing over this on FB and on every message board.

 

BTW again the whole "this is tradition" thing is BS.  Yes, the song goes back to the Rockies days, but the "you suck" part started around 2007.  That's not exactly a long-standing team tradition so let's just cut that part out of the equation.  Also I bet if the owners went up to 1000 Devils fans who wanted the goal song back and said they can have the song back, with the promise they would never chant "you suck" ever again to it, I can imagine at least 80% will tell the owners to go to hell.  So this is about the "you suck" part and not about the goal song nor tradition.

 

I think more of this is about people thinking this ("you suck" vs. a goal song change) isn't such a big god damn deal (on either side of the argument). Because it's not...

 

That being said, I like the new one and can't wait to hear plenty of it on Saturday night, hopefully.

Flames won when the Blackhawks got distracted by the Blues music, got rolled up and the Flames had their feet on the ropes.

 

Also Fayne scored a goal... good for him

 

And the Oil loses 7-4... Yikes, he must be in culture shock after going there from a team like the Devils. It's like leaving Catholic School for Malcolm X HS in Newark in your sophomore year.
