#1212076 Devils getting rid of R&R part 2 as their goal song?

Posted by DJ Eco on 27 September 2013 - 08:50 AM

The vast majority was doing the you suck chant tonight.

 

Including myself. It's the freaking Flyers. I kind of tried to look at it from an objective point of view and stood aside quietly after one of the goals, and like someone said in one of the earlier pages, is there anything more New Jersey than a bunch of people pointing at you and yelling "You suck!"... The answer is no. I love it.

#1210849 Devils make cuts

Posted by DJ Eco on 20 September 2013 - 01:00 PM

I dislike people complaining about enforcers more than I dlslike watching them.

 

The Devils didn't cut anyone eligible for waivers yet.  Young, Sestito, Pelley, and Janssen are all waiver-eligible.

 

He didn't "enforce" anything last night though. If he wanted to enforce, Boulton would've been his target. That blind-sided hit on his first penalty and tripping Brodeur on his third should've drawn his ire...

#1207525 Under Eugene Melnyk, Senators have lost $94 million

Posted by DJ Eco on 20 August 2013 - 10:19 AM

You maybe correct and I am not defending them but:

 

They did report that Vanderbeek was broke

They did report that Vanderbeek had missed a loan payment

They did report that the NHL had advanced the Devils and loan them money to meet expenses

They did report that outside sources had loan Vanderbeek money to meet the payroll and expenses.

They did report the NHL was going to take over the Devils while that was denied by the NHL after all is said and done it appears that would have been the only choice left if there wasn't a buyer for the Devils. 

 

Just saying

 

 

Has any of that been confirmed? Missed loan payment was never confirmed by anyone outside of Forbes/Post. The advance the Devils were given by the NHL was never reported correctly. It was an advance, and not confirmed to be a loan (outside of Forbes/Post). And it was never ever stated or confirmed by anyone that the NHL intended to take over the Devils. On the contrary, there was a bidding war for at least the past month between the attorney's group and the Harris group. Before that, the attorney's group was in place to purchase the team (which Lou and the NHL were abreast of); NHL would not intend to take over the team under any of those circumstances. The attorney's "loan" was really just a down payment of intent to purchase and only to be paid back if Vanderbeek somehow found the resources to keep the team, which was obviously not the case.

 

The fact that you think any of that Forbes/Post garbage is fact is why those articles are so dangerous. Literally everything can be explained away when you realize that someone was in place to purchase the organization for probably at least the past 4-5 months.

#1203697 [Official] Damien Brunner signed to multi-year deal

Posted by DJ Eco on 16 July 2013 - 09:31 AM

Your hatred of Kovalchuk has clouded your judgment.  You honestly think this team is capable of winning a championship anytime soon?  Unless Lou pulls off a couple more huge signings or trades, or unless Schneider ends up being the second coming of Brodeur, Marty's retiring without a fourth Cup.  I don't think the situation is as doom-and-gloom as some others are saying, but I also don't see the Devils being anything close to championship caliber for at least a few years.

 

I disagree. Since when was making "a couple more huge signings or trades" what contributed to our success in the past? I like our roster, especially if Brunner gets added to it. I loooove that we have Schneider. The players we have at our disposal, I feel they can execute DeBoer's system perfectly (Zajac won't have a slump like last year, easy to say; Zubrus/Elias are back, etc.). Clowe and Ryder are great acquisitions and Clowe will especially fit in very well, if he can stay healthy. We have a BIG team with a lot of grit and some edge, which can tire out the opposition with DeBoer's system. Add onto that that we've improved in goal, and I think we're a better team than last year. We're not unlike the Boston or Los Angeles teams in the past few years as far as the makeup of our roster is concerned.

#1197708 Summer 2013 UFA/RFA Thread

Posted by DJ Eco on 28 June 2013 - 10:42 AM

Rumor is that Bettman is allowing the Penguins to be 10 mil over the cap for the next 7 years.

Source: I completely made it up

 

So what you're saying is this is an Š„klund (2.3% accurate) E5.

#1197534 Lecavalier bought out

Posted by DJ Eco on 27 June 2013 - 11:09 AM

I think we'll be seeing the end of an era in Pittsburgh. Swept by the Bruins? Shaky goaltending? Their cap will be hard to squeeze players in? We always just assume that's where UFA/trade bait players want to go, but I can't help but think those feelings are changing.

 

We're seeing teams built like Pittsburgh and New York not winning Cups. Teams built like Boston, L.A., Chicago (and I'll throw Detroit in there still too based on their style) are.

#1191076 Rangers fans

Posted by DJ Eco on 10 May 2013 - 08:28 AM

Unfortunately, the loudest Rangers fans are the dumbest least knowledgable (kinda goes for most sports, right?)... Older Rangers fans (40-50+) know their role and know how much time can pass between Championship-winning seasons. Younger Rangers fans only know the Sean Avery "fatso" era and, CONVENIENTLY, anything after the Devils' dominance of this area. That's mostly why last year's ECF win was so sweet, it put the reality check on a whole lot of young Rangers fans that have somehow developed the theory over the past 10 years that somehow they're the superior organization. If you watch MSG summer programming over and over again, you might get as brainwashed of that as they are.

 

The way they mouth off, you'd think the Rangers were the Yankees and the Devils were the Mets...

#1188377 Brodeur on the cover of NHL14 !!!

Posted by DJ Eco on 23 April 2013 - 08:20 AM

Martin Brodeur is our generation's (hockey) Michael Jordan. You would never see a Chicago Bull fan disrespecting Jordan the way some Devils fans on here crap on Marty. It's embarrassing, really...
