Good for Kovy.. He's developed the attitude of a Devil and is closer to developing the well-rounded game of a Devil

Posted by Colin226 on 18 January 2013 - 04:45 PM

Hockey Night Live on MSG last night was fantastic.. Like I said in another thread, they did about 75% of the show strictly on the Devils.. Dano was going nuts with his pro-Devilness.. It completely made my night, definitely going to continue watching

I listen to B&C on my way to work because Z100's morning show (which I used to love) has since made me want to drive off a bridge.. Don't care for Mike and Mike, either and that's about it for somewhat decent morning shows


Fact of the matter is that hockey needs to be a part of the regular sports conversation here in NJ/NY.. We have 3 teams, one is the richest team in the USA, one is successful, and a 3rd team about to move to Brooklyn.. There is obviously a lot of hockey love around here.. Boomer needs to be an ambassador to making hockey a regular part of the sports conversation here, but he lets Craig shoot him down.. It would also help if Francessa left, though he gives the Devils a ton of respect when he does mention them

When I'm down by Philly hockey talk on the radio is just as common as Eagles and Phillies talk (when there is hockey to discuss).. The radio hosts take calls and actually know what they're talking about because they follow the team.. It's embarrassing that the NY media has made hockey out to be this weird fringe sport that "no one cares about".. Again, 3 freaking teams and we can't get any chatter

It's a self-fulfilling prophecy.. If the radio commentators rarely even talk about hockey and, when they do, they tell people "no one really cares about hockey" or "well I don't really follow the sport" then people in the area will believe that it's this outside sport they should only even consider following in the playoffs.. If you actually bring it into the conversation then more people will begin to follow it and talk about it

But okay, no one cares about hockey.. Yup they'd rather discuss how many ways the Mets and Jets suck, did Carmello overreact to the whole Cheerios thing, how nice is the Nets new herringbone court, is A-Rod an overpaid p***y, and did some college football player really fabricate a story about his gf -- wow, all of that sh!t is way more interesting than hockey about to start for 3 local teams and should be discussed by moronic callers until all listeners want to vomit

End rant

#1161280 Rumor from Russian hockey writer: Kovy considering staying in KHL

Posted by Colin226 on 08 January 2013 - 09:12 PM

Exactly, maybe we can find a home sick New Jersey born player!

We can steal Anthony Stolarz from the Flyers and he'll replace Marty in net

#1160614 Lockout 2012-2013 (Hockey's back!)

Posted by Colin226 on 06 January 2013 - 11:36 AM

There's no chance you get 'any' game by the 12th.

It is too bad they couldn't get this settled in time to have kids from college going to games over winter break, such is the process of stonewalling negotiating an eight-ten year CBA.

I know. The Devils sold out like 7 of 8 games during the college break last year. Further proof that we have a younger fan base just starting to buy tickets on their own

#1157855 Onlin Petition

Posted by Colin226 on 03 December 2012 - 05:59 PM

There was a bunch of initial protesting petitions with large numbers and they did nothing to the process. Its too anonymous, 1 million faceless mass signed an online petition? Whoo dee doo.

I tried farting into a large gust of wind but even that did nothing

#1157153 A frustrated fan says so long to the Canucks - Any STHs here walking?

Posted by Colin226 on 24 November 2012 - 11:09 AM

That logic makes no sense. The Devils organization has nothing to do with the lockout...why punish them (and yourself) because a select few are being stubborn enough to drag this out?

I just don't understand the fans who say they're "giving up" or "not a hockey fan anymore" or they "lose interest" after a work stoppage. Obviously, you weren't a very big hockey fan in the first place if that's the case.

I agree 100%.. Again, why screw over the Devils when about 8 or 9 owners are the ones making the NHL drag this out.. Do you really think Jeff is going to do better by not playing? I guarantee he is ready to get back to hockey right now.. The players are also to blame, but you're not really punishing them by refusing to spend money on the Devils..

It'll just mean that the good players will get signed to places with lots of money.. Yay, we can experience the loss of Zach Parise every year!! Then we'll be like the Islanders who don't spend and thus can't attract any talent to the team.. Yeah that'll show them!!

Be as angry about the situation as you want, but the FACT of the matter is that the New Jersey Devils are NOT to blame for this lockout.. Rich teams with rich owners are, and that's exactly who benefits if you stop supporting the Devils.. The Rangers and Flyers, for example, have massive fan bases so they will recover like nothing ever happened.. So you'll put the Devils in a worse position while the Rangers and Flyers continue spending to the cap and being successful

And let me just remind everyone that the NJ Devils will never be a lock to stay like the Rangers or Flyers are.. This team desperately needs every fan possible (and every STH possible) to be able to stay.. 25 years from now, if we don't have an owner committed to keeping the team here (and it'll take fan support to do that) then it's a very real possibility that the team moves.. It's a doomsday scenario but we all know the current attendance issues even with the team being so successful

The Canucks have a long waiting list, that guy is only hurting himself.. If you want to protest the lockout, then don't watch national TV games.. Punish the NHL, not the Devils.. You're just hurting your underdog team, a team that is definitely against the lockout, and a team that represents a state that no other team is willing to represent

So no, I will not give up my season tickets

#1149013 Devils Dancer - Fan Favorite - Vote Gabrielle!

Posted by Colin226 on 27 August 2012 - 10:01 AM

If you are voting someone else thats fine, but don't go and post on here like you are cool for not helping my friend out. Seriously, what is the fvcking point of that? fvck off.

Well yeah I don't think arrogance about it is cool but I don't see why this has to be a Gabrielle Supporters Only thread..

It's a Devils-run contest (not a member trying to win his girl an iPad in a random contest) so this should be a thread open to discussion on the entire contest.. There is absolutely no need to make a separate thread to discuss the entire contest so we might as well use this one


Which Sarah? Don't vote for Austin Sarah, let her come back to Austin after failing in NY!

I went with non-Texas Sarah cause screw Texas

#1147421 Awesome Kovalchuk t shirt

Posted by Colin226 on 12 August 2012 - 06:00 PM

$5 at Dick's. I just can't bring myself to by anything that says 2012 SCF Finals.

I'm too bitter about it.

Personally I mean yeah it stings that we lost but my view is that I'm ridiculously proud of them making the finals, and beating our 2 biggest rivals to do it.. I mean most people didn't even have us making the playoffs.. So maybe if you look at it that way it'll help lol

#1140173 What is the Devils Plan of Action Now Thread

Posted by Colin226 on 04 July 2012 - 04:42 PM

Plan of action??? For me, about a week of crying, followed by a week of hatred, followed by a month of "I don't give a ****", one month of **** PARISE, and one of Go Devils Love You No Matter What

#1123443 Read Zach's Lips on the Carter Goal

Posted by Colin226 on 24 May 2012 - 08:20 AM

Even if we win their whole fan base will blame the refs, talk about how we'll have some 30 person parking lot parade, and ten say how Zach is leaving and they have a great young nucleus that will win them a Cup soon

Talk is cheap.. I don't need their praise to know we are the better team, the better franchise, and the better fans
