In Topic: Are the Devils going about the PK the right way?

I suppose I should have said "offensive skill" or "pure talent". I dont think anyone considers Madden and Pando upper-tier hockey players in terms of their talent. They're famous among Devils fans because they were excellent role players who killed penalties. I actually think they are archetypes for my assessment, where Kovy or Parise would be exceptions.

Here is my take on the PK.

 

- Good PK'ing is a result of effort, not overall skill

-  Good goaltenders are the best PK'ers

- For younger 3rd and 4th line players (even up through college), there is often a real sense of pride about being on the PK. They feel like they have a roll on the team, even if it isn't to dangle and score goals and rack up TOI.

 

Does that mean the Devils should move JJ and Brunner to the PK instead of Elias and Henrique? I'm not so sure, but I'd be very curious to see if it made a statistically significant impact. My guess is that anyone good enough to play to pro hockey can be an excellent Pk'er.

not to be a downer but I got 3 tickets on stubhub for game 1 of the finals the day before for $75 per. First row in the upper deck, it was a corner but great view of the Fayne whiff on the wide open net.

 

You're not being a downer, you just got lucky...and that's great. Personally, I'm surprised you found tickets so inexpensively and I'd prefer to have tickets in hand and know exactly when I'm going and where I'm sitting.

The playoff priority is a huge help. I was paying just over $100/seat for Stanely Cup Final tickets during our last run. Good luck finding that on the secondary market.

 

And yes, the reps are annoying in the offseason, but that's how it is when you work on comission. Once the season starts, having a rep to call is a big help for extra seats, extra games, concerts, etc.
