Are the Devils breaking an old tradition?

30 August 2014 - 02:12 PM

Saw this at the NHL Store on 6th Avenue.  I mean, it's the NHL and the Devils so it wouldn't shock me if one hand doesn't know what the other is doing.  Nevertheless ...





Expansion to Vegas Apparently "Done Deal"

I think it's an awful idea, but I'm usually wrong about these things.

Pronman's Top Ten Devils Prospects

19 August 2014 - 10:12 AM

Behind the espn paywall, so I'll just list them in order:


Santini, Severson, Quenneville, Matteau, Boucher, Pietila, Jacobs, Kujawinski, Gavrus, Scarlett.  Honorable mention, Myles Bell.  (Larsson, Merrill and Gelinas all "graduated").


I can't argue with this too much, except that I don't know why Gavrus is on there.  He probably has even less of a shot as making it into the NHL than Tedenby has at returning at some point.  I can think of at least five players I'd put ahead of him.  Black, Johnson, Helegson, Hrabanka, Bell and Scarlett each have at least a decent shot at having more than a cup of coffee in the NHL, even if it's of the Nick Palmieri sort. 

Question about Tix for Flyers Game

29 July 2014 - 11:03 AM

So I'm thinking about going to Devils/Flyers opening night in Philly with a friend of mine.  I saw nosebleed tickets available for $56 each through a broker site.  Anyone been to Flyer games who can tell me whether this is a good deal, or if it makes sense to hold out for a better price closer to the start of the season? 

Coyotes in trouble again?

Rumblings that members of the Glendale City Council violated the open meetings law by having discussions with IceArizona's attorney out of session. According to the article, if this is found to have been the case, the deal can be voided and the city has to reaprove the deal. Evidently the city took in a lot less in parking revenue than what was predicted, so I suppose it's possible that enough members decide to stop throwing good money after bad, and take the revote as an opportunity to unwind things, At some point, Bettman will have to realize that you can't have yet another cloud of uncertainty hanging over things, and he allows IceArizona to sell the team to owners in another market. You could probably kick some of that money back to Glendale, which very well might sue to recover anyway.

Edit: FWIW I took a look at the Coyotes board on HF Boards, and there's a case to be made that this is click bait by the AZ Republic. Apparently these accusations get made as a matter of course, and ultimately city officials pay small fines, and approved deals cannot be voided.
