#1313381 End of Season Notes 4/13/15

Posted by HellOnICE on 13 April 2015 - 01:33 PM

We're in a different position than though to "not try to make the playoffs". We aren't in a tanking position. We have a great goalie and a good defense. We aren't going to be a bottom 5 team most likely. Don't make any stupid moves is more like it. If we don't make any dumb moves and somehow make the playoffs, great. 

 

Let's wait until Saturday.

#1306950 I really am beginning to hate our fans.

Posted by HellOnICE on 26 February 2015 - 10:57 AM

Because I'm bored. And it's not a stick up the ass, it's common sense. We look like a$$holes. Chanting You Suck at a team when we're in last place. Want to be relevant, chant the name of the guy who just scored the goal with the vuvuzela retards. I mean, whatever happened to the Mike Miller chant, that was actually nice and creative.

#1304222 GDT: Oilers @ Devils starts 7p, MSG+

Posted by HellOnICE on 09 February 2015 - 11:32 PM

I was there tonight. This fvcking team is unwatchable. It's the first time I felt Lou needs to go and they need to clean house. I mean this is what he brought the other guys in for and scratching Gelly and Ryder. I mean it can't get worse and Gelly is the problem?

 

I think it's time to fire Lou, I really do. We need to start over.

#1296648 I really am beginning to hate our fans.

Posted by HellOnICE on 21 December 2014 - 06:08 AM

This season has confirmed it for me: The majority of our fans, and it is the majority, are fvcking morons. 

I'm so sick of the idiots who claim to support this team and bitch about every fvcking thing about the team, the players, the arena, the owners, the food in the building, the goal song, the announcements, the booing, everything sucks mentality...it just fvcking disgusts me. 

 

 

Just from the start of last night at the rink - the people booing DeBoer in the pregame announcements. Like get a fvcking life already. They have no ability to look at the roster and see that TIM SESTITO, JORDIN TOOTOO, STEPHEN GIONTA, MARTIN HAVLAT, MIKE SISLO are all in the same line up - and they are ranting and raving about ITS THE SYSTEM man! It's the system. Pete doesn't care. Doesn't change anything. He's not throwing benches on the ice like Ftorek - he shows no PASSION man. EVERY game for Pete, is arranging deck chairs. He's got no guns. You want to know why a team like Washington can manhandle us? They have first line players. We don't. It's that simple. Pete said it last night and he's right - "We needed someone to be our first star last night." They don't have one. In 82 games, you need stars to carry you. It's that simple, but no - the coach is the problem. The guy who's at least keeping this team somewhat competitive. 

 

One goal against last night and MORONS are chanting "We want Kinkaid" Go fvck yourselves. Idiots. "This team just plays better in front of Keith" they are saying...are you out of your minds? 

 

It's the same a$$holes who if the Devils scored last night to make it 3-1 - they'd be chanting YOU SUCK! A bunch of idiots. 

 

The bottom line is these idiots have no sense of context and they can't look up in the rafters and see an ARENA'S WIDTH of success hanging down with the majority of this greatness taking place in the 2000s. Aside from the Detroits - who's had it better for longer? I mean, the way people are acting - it's like we're the Oilers and Mets combined. Appreciate what you have here - a team that's struggling but has a great young goalie (and a capable backup) and a great young defense. Realize it's a work in progress and you can't just replace two mega stars like PArise and Kovalchuk with the snap of the finger. 

 

Oh it's Lou's fault. The guy lost it. He just built a Cup contender 3 years ago and the only reason we haven't won one since then, is because our dumb ass huckster owner at the time loved the team so much, he ran into the ground financially because he couldn't bear sell his baby until Bettman had to wrestle the team away from him. First he didn't want to give up any ownership, then he wanted to sell a minority stake (like potential investors were running at that fvcking idea) all while getting loans from the fvcking league - leaving our hall of fame general manager to sit there having no flexibility or ability to keep the Captain he traded up to get and build the team around. Lou had his team of the decade and it was ripped from him over sh!tty circumstance. Now what? He needs time to rebuild and retool.

 

Have some patience. 

 

People at the game, people on Facebook, people on HF talking about putting bags over their heads...saying how this team is like the Jets or the Mets? Go fvck yourselves. Put a bag over your heads. A plastic one. 

 

I'm sorry to take up a thread like this - but christ it's frustrating to be a fan of this team and not because of the team - it's because of the fans. I can see the bigger picture of the team on the ice and I'm fine with that. it stinks to go to games and they lose every one I've been to this season. But look at the bigger picture.

 

These guys work as hard as a team can do playing as many games in as many nights as they are. It's not an easy game and not an easy league. Understand how difficult it is and realize we have three Stanley Cups in my life time. The Rangers have won ONE in 74 YEARS. The Flyers haven't won since GERALD FORD was the President. The Blues, Sabres, CANUCKS have NEVER won anything at all. The Islanders have SUCKED for every year in my lifetime pretty much except for this one. Imagine being one of those fans and get off your goddamn high horse, sit in your fvcking seat with your jersey on, clap when they do something positive, clap when they score and take this season in stride.

#1292110 GDT - 11/29/14 - Devils @ Islanders - 7:00pm

Posted by HellOnICE on 30 November 2014 - 11:34 PM

In 2006 he seemed to lose it.......????????

 

Fact remains, if we had better ownership, we probably would've won a cup in the last 3 years. If we had an owner who could've offered a better deal chances are we would've locked Zach up long term, Kovy would've stayed and we'd be a solid team. 

 

Lou put together a contender but it was dismantled really with none of his own doing. That's what sucks so bad. He made the bold move, it paid off, then it came crashing down because Vanderbeek didn't have enough money.

#1283081 GDT: Devils vs Sharks (10/18) Home Opener

Posted by HellOnICE on 18 October 2014 - 10:40 PM

Just back.

 

The Arena: What a great job they did, really really really. The food options are much much improved. I really liked the sliders in the upper concourse and I am eager to try a lot of the other food as well. It's going to get me in the building spending more money on gamenights rather than guaranteed going to Dino BBQ or elsewhere pregame - so they are doing their jobs on this one. It just looks better too. More creative, more colorful and well thought out.

 

The 3D - I was actually sort of just meh on it. I mean really cool...really cool - but the design and what they did with it was anti-climactic and devoid of story telling. Something like that needs to build like a firework display and it was kind of flat. But still very cool. Hopefully they improve on it.

 

The sound - yeah I had sound issues in the upper concourse. I didn't mind too much what they played on the music-side as others did, but I actually felt it was too quiet. I think that's a problem with where the speakers are and the mix in the building. I was in 228, and just couldn't hear it that well and my hearing is fine. I will say though the GOAL SONG was too loud from the speaker (although it was quiet by me) but it sounded distorted and the vocals in the song mix was 'unhearable'. 

 

Anyway as for the game - looked fine mostly, a little out of sync in the first half of the game. Much like everyone has said here about Sal and Gelinas. Gelinas was a train wreck all night, bad decisions. Zids was too, but at least he got some shots through. Gelinas was a loose cannon literally on that PP and gave the puck up way too much. Time for Larsson.

#1250929 Marty's Quote at trade deadline

Posted by HellOnICE on 07 March 2014 - 09:54 AM

We aren't reading too much into it. It's Marty.

 

I'd be fine if he said "I want to play. I want to play in the playoffs, but ultimately it's up to me. My job is to play as well as I can and make them play me. I'm here to help the team win and if that's playing every night, great. If it's to help Cory and the team in other ways, that's great too. It's not about me. I want the team to win."

 

Except he doesn't say that. He says he wants to play and talked to Lou about it, like a baby who wants a handout.

#1245486 moooooose is back

Posted by HellOnICE on 13 February 2014 - 10:31 AM

Come to think of it, when 30 gets traded is Moose getting a look as a backup - that way we don't have to get a goalie back neccesarily.

#1232580 GDT: Devils at Pens 7:00PM

Posted by HellOnICE on 13 December 2013 - 11:14 PM

It's not the refs.

 

We have two rookie defensemen back there who are being asked to do a lot. Maybe they shouldn't have been paired together against Malkin, who knows.

 

Cory had a weak start, but why doesn't Pete  say "well he hadn't started in a week." excuse the old man uses.

 

WE need to go back to Cory tomorrow and ride him. He's the better goaltender. He didn't get much work tonight, let's let him bounce back.
