In Topic: Preseason GDT: Devils @ The Rangers

I honestly don't understand how the renovations cost $1 billion, it's mind-blowing. And I'm in construction/design.

 

For a point of reference, Prudential Center cost  $375 million, from the ground up.

 

I'd have to think that a lot of the costs were simply around logistics.. They had to replace the arena piece by piece and all over a bustling train station in a crowded city.. Not to mention they rushed every summer with employees working 24/7 to get it done, so I'm sure they paid a lot of time and a half

 

So based on that, my guess is that $1 billion figure is pretty inflated and MSG loves throwing it out there for the publicity of looking like big shots.. We all know how they love to toot their own horn (some call it borderline brainwashing) about how amazingly famous and incredible the Garden is

I'll say that in high school baseball, a kid one year ahead of me always took #26 because older players go first when picking.. I still did alright, making varsity sophomore and junior years with #36, but my senior year I finally got #26 and my game happened to improve considerably.. Hit .403, almost broke the school record in doubles, and made All-Conference.. I'm not saying it was the number, but it might have been the number :P

Cory Schneider will still get called for playing the puck outside the trapezoid.

 

Nah, most of these are good.  Glad to see the shootout spin-o-rama go away, glad to see intentional faceoff violations go, trapezoid can go away forever, who cares, and the offensive zone thing will help the Devils much more than it does other teams.

 

Not that I think we were going to come back in that game but wow that some a BS call.. The ref was behind Cory!!
