Your Thoughts About: Ownership

21 August 2015 - 01:08 PM

Dont think Mozic or O'Brien will generate much discussion and I think we're out of potential 2015-16 Devils.


Note: Please keep this civilized. It's ok to have dissenting opinions but please be respectful of other posters. Attack the post, not the poster.


Looking back at the changes from two years ago is insane.  We had an owner who was scraping the bottom of his cushions for money so he could pay his rent. Although he should be commended for being a huge Devils fan and helping with the construction of the Prudential Center, he was in way over his head. The lawsuits and constant speculation was growing tiresome. Lou pretty much admitted that we lost Parise because of JVB.


Enter Josh Harris and David Blitzer. Our funds went from zilch to billions overnight. I know people like to point that this ownership isnt committed to the franchise but they did get us out of debt, revamp the arena and have sought to improve fan relations. They also handed out large contracts to Schneider, Cammalleri and Greene.


Of course the goal song fiasco is/was somewhat of a black eye and they've raised ticket prices, but they're trying to appeal more to corporations, which is something we need as there isnt a ton of fan interest.



Then you have the apparent overthrow of Lou. I think most agree that it was the most healthy thing for the franchise.

Overall, I think we're pretty lucky to have these guys

First rounder this year who has freakish tools but the production was lacking last year. However, going back two seasons ago, he did well in the Czech League as a 16 year old. I think the knock on him seems to be that he doesnt use his teammates all that well. Of course, that's a big concern and will limit what he can do at the next level, but the tools are there. It's rare to see a big guy have the speed and hands he possesses as long as a heavy shot. I hope he doesnt play more than 9 games in NJ unless he's a standout

Another youngster on the cusp of being full time.


Tore it up his last year in Sarnia and had an encouraging first pro year in Albany. This year, the production wasnt as strong, but he did maintain a similar shot rate. I think he's a little weak and slow which will hinder him at the next level. But his shot is so good.
