#1273444 Schneider re-signs with extended multi-year contract

Posted by DevsMan84 on 11 July 2014 - 03:11 PM

Reminds me of the dopes who say they'd rather have the pitcher who has an ERA approaching 4.00 but has a winning record vs. the one who has an ERA in the low-to-mid 2.00 range with a sub-.500 record because the guy with the higher ERA "knows how to win".  Yeah, there's shades of gray here...an ERA can be bloated by a handful of putrid outings over the course of a season, and if you want to go into sabermetric territory you can bring up ballparks, etc...but the idea is to give up as few runs as possible so your team doesn't have to score as many runs to win.  If the guy with the low ERA is pitching for a lousy offensive team and/or is leaving games with leads and seeing his bullpen cough those leads up, is his team really losing ithe games that guy starts because he doesn't know how to win?!

 

Marty's decent GAAs the past two seasons had everything to do with the team limiting shots...on a lot of other teams, it would have been 3.00 or higher.  And Cory's GAA was light-years better than Marty's last season (1.97 to 2.51), so there goes the GAA argument with the fanboy crowd. 

 

He actually argued the other way around by saying save % can be inflated by the team limiting the amount of shots on net.  For a self-proclaimed scout of anything he sure is a dipsh!t when it comes to his own material.  Not only that but he goes around like a friggin know-it-all and many people come and leave that group just because of him.

 

Also probably him defending Marty because of the other mods is a relative of Marty lol.

#1269278 The 2014 NJ Devils Offseason Thread

Posted by DevsMan84 on 18 June 2014 - 04:15 PM

Thinking about this past season.. I hope Lou does something to add some excitement to this team.

 

Because now that these exciting playoffs are over, I'm starting to remember just how horribly dull and boring the Devils were this past season.

 

Excitement?

 

I bet every time Lou hears that word he does this check of his own mental dictionary while thinking "EX-SIGH-MENT!?" a la Mr. Burns with recycling when Lisa asked if his plant had a recycling program.

#1267849 congrats to the 2013-14 Champs, the Kings

It's the NHL playoffs. There are no "team's of destiny". I know it is cliche as fvck, but it really is the toughest trophy to win. After the 1st round, there are 8 teams that feel really good about themselves and say "that there is just something special about this team." Maybe it's surviving elimination in round 1 or winning in game 7 OT. Maybe it is looking flat out dominant early on in the playoffs, but it's such a long ride and such a long grind...

 

It's very easy to get caught up in that stuff. Eventually, the magic or luck runs out and you just face a stronger team. The Devils were looking great in 2006 having won their last 11 regular season games including an incredible comeback on the final day of the season against Montreal to win the division. They came into the playoffs and swept their rivals. That was 15 in a row, and then they got beat up by the Canes.

 

Usually, the teams that don't talk about that destiny crap are the damn good teams that expect to be winning. Doubt you heard that from NJ fans in 2000, 2001, or 2003, but probably more often during the 2012 Cup run.

 

 

Back in my day "teams of destiny" used to be called teams on a "cinderella run"

 

We also used to tie onions to our belts, which was the style at the time.

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of Rangers fans voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced.

They were talking about the ratings on WFAN earlier. Game 1 of the Cup Finals did a 10 in NYC. Game 1 of the NBA Finals did an 11 in NYC. So game 1 of the NBA Finals between two out-of-market teams still put up a better rating in NY than a Rangers Cup Finals game.

 

Bright lights of Broadway brah!

 

I guess some of the winds in the sails of the bandwagoners deflated a little after that game 1 loss.  Game 2 loss (as well as every subsequent loss) will further weed out the bandwagon Rags fans.

I also hope Gaborik wins the Conn Smythe and they have to present it to him at the Garden. I may die from laughing if that happens lmao.

 

That would be just a little too perfect.  Given how this season has been, I am not going to hold my breath.

#1265862 Doc in NHL 15

Posted by DevsMan84 on 28 May 2014 - 03:09 PM

Eh now I am starting to think you two are right.  Maybe I am looking at this too harshly (I am being 100% honest with this).

 

I think one of the things I will do for this coming season is to be less critical of our own fans and just let it be.  God knows it will be better for myself and others lol.

 

Ok carry on about NHL 15 now.  I don't play the game so ummmm there's that.

#1261573 Brodeur Appreciation Thread

Posted by DevsMan84 on 17 April 2014 - 05:49 PM

Typical. Appreciation thread turns into another bashing thread. :mad:


Who's bashing? I swear you pull this crap all the time by seeing things that aren't there or happening. All this so you can come here and feel high and mighty. Stop it already.

For the Rangers-Flyers series I will be rooting for the arena roof collapsing.

#1256145 Here we go again. New goal song for 14-15

Posted by DevsMan84 on 27 March 2014 - 10:08 AM

I am not sure if I've ever been a fan of yours, but this is some sheer bullsh!t that made me lose the last amount of respect for you I may have had. I didn't come on here looking for a confrontation, but me, being a fan for as long as a can remember, this is just downright offensive. If you're a season ticket holder, you better have a vested interest in what our fanbase does, and the atmosphere we provide. If you genuinely do not care at all, then do us all a favor, and don't renew for next year. I'd rather have one less season ticket holder than an apathetic nothing. Sit on your hands at home.

 

The part you are not quite understanding is that not everyone has the same definition of whats good :atmosphere" at the arena.  I doubt even the dead-set anti-"You suck" crowd would want a library of an arena, but not everyone enjoys the obnoxious atmosphere of a college basketball game either.  There are games I attend simply because the game will be quieter and not filled with the obnoxious college crowd and the silly man-children to basically ruin my enjoyment and be in constant fear of having someone killing my eardrums or drunkenly spilling crap all over me.  That's not fun to me and it's not fun to many others and you have to respect that as well.

 

Years ago (I am saying like 10+ years) I think there was a happy medium for the most part on a lot of game nights, but now it seems there are just two types of crowds: the quiet library one and the college basketball obnoxious crap crowd.

#1252578 GDT: Devils @ Phailures 7:00 PM

Posted by DevsMan84 on 13 March 2014 - 04:28 PM

The people who comment on those Facebook fan groups should be forced to pass a hockey IQ test to continue watching. Since they'd all fail miserably, it would help weed out a lot of fvcking morons.

 

Here are pretty much every post on those groups right now:

 

1) Cory or Marty?

2) I think we should trade Gelinas and a 5th rounder in 2016 for Tavares.  Is this a good deal for us?

3) OMG!! Fully stitched authentic Devils jerseys for only $35!!!! website: www.fakesh!ttychinesejerseys.com

4) The goal song sucks!  I hate everything!

5) Look I made this sh!tty-looking customized t-shirt.  Buy one!!  I even put one that says "Jagr-bomb"!  I am so clever!

6) When is the next game/signing/event/etc.  I am too lazy to do a 5 second google search.

#1247310 All purpose Olympics thread

Posted by DevsMan84 on 24 February 2014 - 09:09 PM

The one that still annoys me is when dm84 tried to get on my case because I said attendance RANKINGS don't mean anything to me. See I do care about the Devils attendance. I don't care about where we rank in relation to the rest of league because even if we sell out every game, we won't be higher than like 17th or something in the league.

There's too many variables when it comes to attendance figures. Unless the league can come up with a ranking system that eliminates all of those variables, I don't care where we rank.


Except there is a significant difference between the two phrases.


No, but if you go into court assuming certain phrases or terms mean the same thing, you'll get blown apart in court.


dm84 is usually just that.

I haven't mentioned you or directed anything towards you on here in almost three days and now this?

Just stop your crap already and stop involving me when you get called out by other people. It's clearly not just me who has an issue with you.
