In Topic: Brendan Byrne/Continental Airlines arena closing end of Month *Confir

The one thing I hated about the BBA was the concourses were so small it felt like a cattle call getting out after a game.

 

I do love the size of the arena. I know it was rarely ever filled but its just fun seeing 19k in there.

My first game that I ever went to. Got the tickets through the Catholic school group sale thing. Tried with the Nets agains the Warriors. Didn't hook me as much. Also I don't remember them doing Nets group fundraiser sales ever again. Did Devils a few years.

That's the 2nd facile comparison to Charles Sarault - I guess you didn't read the thread since someone already mentioned him - but Sarault is being outgoaled by Blandisi already and it's only January.

 

CHLStats has a cool feature where they age adjust everyone's numbers - although I'm not sure of how they do it, so it may be flawed (there seem to be all kinds of survivorship bias issues potentially) - either way, Blandisi ranks about 30th in points per game age adjusted.  Not great, but not terrible either. 

Either way I see no reason to not sign the guy.

It would be awesome if Red Bull Arena got the event. They definitely could fill the building for it.

when they announced the NY/NJ (or as I like to call it NJ) location I figured the Red Bull Arena made the most sense. Its an outdoor stadium but it isn't Metlife where you have to sell 50-60k to make it work so its unique with more seats.

Well the Devils need young forward talent so here's hoping. HE was doing well in the OHL this season but as a 20 year old in a younger league that can be misleading. Either way I don't know since I don't watch much Canadian juniour hockey.

In Topic: How long as it been since the last Devils game?

Saturday. To be fair I think we've played the most games out of everyone in the league and they have to catch up to us.

Friday but who's really counting. Its funny looking at the Knicks schedule who also played the most games in the league and they played Saturday and in the  8 days after that only have one game and its on Thursday.

 

Its really jarring with the amount of back to backs the Devils play to get these long stretches of days off
