In Topic: Lou Lamoriello Appreciation Thread

09 May 2015 - 01:50 PM

I've said this elsewhere, but Lou is the reason I'm a Devils fan and not a Rags fan. I'm nothing but grateful for everything he's done for this franchise. Forever, in Lou we trust.

I like Cloverleaf. Foods decent, rotating taps are nice. They have a surprisingly high number of basics, which is frustrating, and for a beer bar, the staff doesn't know that much, but if you know your sh!t and want to try some stuff, they're good.

In Topic: RAY SHERO = NEW GM. Coach decision is Shero's.

Haven't had a chance to post til now. I've always believed in Lou, even knowing how badly the past few years have gone. I've also always respected Shero, so while we're not in good shape, I'm cautiously optimistic long term. Also happy Lou went outside the organization/family to pick his successor, because, even as a Lou fan, that trend was bothersome.

More importantly, Lou is the reason I'm a Devils fan. I picked my hockey team, and my dad likes the Rangers, so if anything, they would have been the logical choice. The classy, intelligent, professional organization that Lou ran drew me in, and I feel fortunate it did. I'm proud to be a Devils fan in a way I'm not proud of my other teams. Maybe the metro rivalries have something to do with that, but the Devils identity is so,etching special to me, and that's all Lou. I don't agree with every decision he's made, on ice or off, but it's been an honor to watch one of the greatest ever work for my entire hockey watching life. I'll always love this team. And I think this may be a smart change,. But this is the end of An amazing era, and it'll never be the same.

Thanks for everything, Lou.

I'd love to see Andy Greene, though I heard from a friend of a friend (admittedly as reliable a source as the security guard) that the powers that be think he's too critical, especially to the media, and they liked how Sal stayed positive.

In Topic: Hockey should be 4 on 4 the whole game

18 March 2015 - 10:12 PM

4 v 4 would fvck up penalties royally. The 5 on 3 is a huge part of the game, for good reason. It's fvcking exciting, and a reward for discipline (or a penalty for lack thereof). Also, we have enough goals. We're past the trap heavy dead puck era, and the game, purely in terms of aesthetics, is, imo, as good as it's been in my lifetime. 3v3 ot makes sense, because too many games are being decided in the skills competition. We don't need to butcher the first 60 minutes to solve that problem.
