#1316725 Interesting Happenings down south

Posted by DevsMan84 on 14 May 2015 - 03:49 PM

Pretty much every single third jersey concept I have seen for the Devils I have hated.  The best one I have seen I had pretty much a meh response to.  I figure at this point a 3rd jersey is inevitable, whether it be in a year or in 10 years.  It is bound to happen and Lou can't and won't be in control forever.  I just hope it is not a black jersey which has been done into oblivion and is very un-creative.

 

I too thought we should break out the retros twice a year and a few months ago put out the idea of doing the one time at Christmas and one time on St. Patty's day as well here.  Other posters said it would water it down and I kind of have to agree with that after thinking about it.  I think what they should do instead is alternate the red and white retros every year.  Even years get red and odd years get the white retro treatment on St. Patty's day.  I think that would be neat.

#1316214 Lou Lamoriello Appreciation Thread

Posted by DevsMan84 on 09 May 2015 - 06:50 PM

Simply the best. Ever.

But in all honesty, we shouldn't even be having this discussion. The fact that Lou was forced out of the GM position on this team is a travesty. I'm sorry, but I'm just finding it very difficult to like this team going forward after the disrespectful stunt these owners pulled. I may just follow another sport until they leave or Lou is reinstated. At least show some respect for Lou and bring his son Chris into the fold as Assistant GM under Shero. It's the least they could do. Just pathetic.


Good you and beetlebum can stop watching the devils. Please I beg you both.

#1315907 RAY SHERO = NEW GM. Coach decision is Shero's.

Posted by DevsMan84 on 07 May 2015 - 08:17 AM

 

“They wanted a view outside the organization,” said Lamoriello. “They wanted a fresh view.”

 
fvck these owners, they are scum. Total classless move that they have not issued a statement on Lou's new position, and thanked him for his years of service for the team.

 

 

These owners could cure cancer and you would still hate them.   I guess you prefer JVB nickel and diming everything instead.

 

There is some sort of meeting/statement thing Josh Harris is holding either today or tomorrow.  More likely than not it's about Lou.

Lou approaches the podium and puts on glasses:

 

"Ladies and gentlemen, the orange crop estimates for the next year.  After calculating the estimates from various orange producing states, we have concluded the following...The cold winter has apparently not effected the orange harvest..."

#1311234 Should Daneyko continue as color commentator next year?

Posted by DevsMan84 on 27 March 2015 - 11:10 AM

How I rank our PBP guys (since I've been watching):

 

Gary Thorne

Steve Cangelosi 

Doc Emrick

 

Color:

 

Bill Clement

Dano

Chico

 

To me, Doc and Chico just had too much of that high pitched Canadian voice going on (which is weird because Emrick is American). At least Dano has some bass in his voice. If he wasn't so busy making movies I'd say give Kevin Smith a shot at Color (kind of like how they tried Howard Stern on Monday Night Football). He's been repping the Devils in his movies for years and he's a fan. But I want Clerks 3 and Mallratz 2 first. 

 

Could not disagree more with Thorne and Clement being the best.  I mean I think Thorne is still recovering from the surgery of having his lips detached from Bourque and Sakic's asses during the 2001 Finals.

Posted by DevsMan84 on 26 March 2015 - 07:26 PM

I don't love him in this role but he doesn't bother me either.

We probably wouldn't focus on this as much if the team was better.

#1306940 Devils Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by DevsMan84 on 26 February 2015 - 09:58 AM

Kid sounds like a bust - but at this point I'd take anything with remotely tangible value for a guy who has completely and totally checked out like Jagr has.

 

Bennett could be our next Bobby Butler!

Funny how you got "lazy" when calculating the shots for and against under DeBoer.  Me thinks the real numbers just didn't fit your hatred of PDB narrative.

#1303653 GDT: Leafs at Devils, 7PM

Posted by DevsMan84 on 06 February 2015 - 10:24 AM

A win today means 13 out of the last 14 possible points, and an 8-2-2 record over the last 12.

God damnit.

 

I'm in the same boat.  I mean I won't ever be really pissed at a Devils win but I think it would be better for their future to be losing more games at this point than they are winning.

 

This team has been extremely lucky lately in their last 10-15 games.  They are due to fall back to Earth sooner rather than later.

 

With that said LGD

Absolutely nothing.

#1300282 I really am beginning to hate our fans.

Posted by DevsMan84 on 12 January 2015 - 11:11 AM

Hate to bring this topic back from the dead but what I heard about what happened at the STH event last night on both FB and HFBoards really burns me up.

 

The event was basically the fans interacting with players on various different panels.  The panels were usually around 3-4 players each.  From what I heard last night and today, when Salvador went up people, Devils "fans", actually were booing him!  Not only that but a few people were observed getting up and leaving when he went up.

 

How fvcking disrespectful is that?  These are paying STH who would boo their own captain?  I don't care if you love him or hate him, to do this at a meet and greet event where it is supposed to be a friendly atmosphere is beyond terrible.  I have ragged on Marty here and there throughout the years but I would never boo him at an event like this.  The "fans" that did this are completely classless are rude.  I don't know how I would have reacted to the booing fans, but it wouldn't be pretty.

 

I wish I could say I am surprised, but I am not.  This is what a decent chunk of our fanbase is these days and I am embarrassed to be rooting for the same team as them.  This is why I really do hate a decent chunk of our fanbase.

Hagelin couldn't be any more stiff in it too.  He looks like one of the ISIS victims  who read the anti-western crap they force them to read in their videos.

#1297526 Breaking: Pete Deboer Fired

Posted by DevsMan84 on 26 December 2014 - 08:10 PM

Brooks who has always been very praiseworthy of Lou pretty much called him out a few months ago for the situation the team finds itself in. Even Pierre McGuire was pretty critical of the Devils recently. The media is starting to take notice finally.


I'm not saying I disagree with Chere in regards to lou should step aside soon, but what he goes after lou is ridiculous and what I read all the time on facebook, Twitter and here.

I mentioned the parise situation specifically. Chere is getting on him for not re-signinf him during the season before he bolted. He never mentions that he was about to until his agent told him to wait until free agency. He also neglects the fact that JVB had no money to sign another monster contract with parise after the Kovy contract (he does briefly mention JVB finances as a possibility but a few paragraphs after). Oh and he also gets on lou for the bad signings like for Clowe and Ryder but doesn't mention the contract parise eventually got which could very well be an even bigger albatross of a contract a few years down the line.

And yeah I agree the marketing thing is petty and this is coming from me who has gone after lou for the marketing in the past. If anything Lou should be held accountable to the on-ice product and his timr is quickly coming to an end here, but Chere needs to be a little more objective and fair to Lou when he wants to tear him a new one in a click bait article

#1290858 GDT: Devils at Calgary 10 PM

Posted by DevsMan84 on 23 November 2014 - 01:35 AM

This. I'm glad someone else can actually notice the big picture, and look at things rationally.


No team ever unloads, even the really bad teams. A team like Buffalo might sell off 1 or 2 key guys, and that's it. I also never said anything about buying or selling. I simply said trade. So there was no reason to believe I would want a trade to make the playoffs.


I would rather miss the playoffs and get a shot at a possible generational talent than make the 8th spot to be one and done.

Even if we only have a 2% chance at getting that #1 pick if we miss the playoffs I'm all in for that. I know you would appreciate that because of you being an advocate of low percentage chances.
