In Topic: The Devils are bad and it's time to tank

I actually agree with the selling. There's just no core here. A few young defensemen who may or may not pan out, a few mid level forwards (Zajac, Henrique) who, while important, aren't making or breaking anything, and what else are we looking at in three years? Who knows what we're getting from Boucher and Matteau. I think you gotta move what you have at this point to get some prospects and picks. Jagr, i'm sure someone will give us something for Ryder. I don't know, but it doesn't look great to me

I was on HF for a minute years ago. It was so heavily moderated, you couldn't compete a thought without getting a warning message. Most of the posters were sh!tty too from what I remember. I used to be on thenhlarena everyday. The traffic was always low, a handful of fans from each team, but it pretty much died last year.

In Topic: Players for whom you have outsized memories?

I think I have the opposite memory of Chris Terreri. When I was a young kid just breaking into hockey, I remember him as Marty's backup. One game he must've let up a few goals pretty quick the first time I remember anyone besides Marty in net, and that was it. No one was quite as terrible as he was to me. I have inflated memories of Clemmer, like a lot of you guys remembering Ari Ahonen and Corey Schwab, I thought he was going to be big time.For some reason, Arturs Irbe always sticks out for me remembering him being fantastic in Carolina's 02 run when they knocked us out in the first round no problem.

 

Most of my oversized memories are of old Nets and Mets players. Keith Van Horn I'll always think was unstoppable. Mehmet Okur when the Jazz made that run to the conference finals. And back in the Mets glory days, my favorite players were guys like Xavier Nady, Paul Lo Duca, Oliver Perez. God, that 06 team. I'll also always think Nick Markakis is the best right fielder in the majors. And if Bob Stumpo ever breaks into the league, watch the fvck out. A few doubles up in Lakewood is apparently all it takes for me.

In Topic: Newark - Unfriendliest City in US

only a few uber-PC people are drinking the "Newark is a virbrant city" kool-aid.

Yea, uber-PC people, and those of us who spend our time in urban studies and community planning academia. If you want to see a sh!thole, take a ride around the "downtown" of whatever hell suburb you come from.

Is this a joke?
