In Topic: Here we go again. New goal song for 14-15

20 July 2014 - 04:12 PM

Mildly curious to see how a new song gets chosen this year.

I'd like to see the vuvuzelas get the heave-ho more than anything else...the Diablos' main vuvu guy insists on blowing on it constantly and in annoying proportions, and he's like a five-year-old with thundersticks...he seems to be incapable of figuring out when enough is enough. As much as I think the Diablos are kind of lame (like I've said, they're some stuffed-suit's interpretation of an "enthusiatic fan group"...nothing terribly genuine about them), without the vuvuzelas they're much easier to take.


Pretty sure one of the few things everyone here agrees on is that the vuvuzela guy is really annoying. The only people that seem not to mind it so much are the ones who sit on the opposite end of the arena and can't hear it that well lol. I'm fine with it being used sparingly, but when the guy's blasting away on it for 2 mins straight on the pk it's unbearable.

We should get that number the devils put up on the scoreboard for feedback on the game experience on here and all text it during a game next season complaining that the vuvuzela is really, really annoying. That and about how blasting music during the intermission is unnecessary and completely ruins any chance at having a normal conversation with whoever you're at the game with. Those two things are my top two complaints about the game day experience.

In Topic: Jacob Josefson signed to a one-year deal

I'm still not sure where Josefson will fit in. They have 14 forwards signed with what seems like Carter likely to make it 15. Move out 2 forwards via trade and Josefson still seems out of the starting 12, waiting for an injury to happen to get him into the line up. Then the possibility that if/when injuries occur guys like Boucher or Sislo could get the call up to play over him. I just don't see anyway he gets consistent minutes next year.

I still wonder if he'd make it through waivers. I think he probably would but I don't know how the new owners would feel about paying him a NHL salary to play in the AHL.

I may have missed a post that reported this but CapGeek has him on a 1 way deal, $800k/year for 2014-15 and 2015-16.


What makes you think it's likely that Carter will sign with us? Unless he's just waiting for LL to move some forwards, there's really no need to sign him despite Carter being the one member of cbgb that I really wanted to see get signed.

well the argument there is Tallinder. that move was clearly to make room, and you can't say we got any value in return. i believe that is an example where he made a deal just to make a deal


True, but at that point Tallinder didn't have much value around the league due to him being injured recently and not being much of a point producer. I also think he wanted out after kinda being the odd man out in the 8 man rotation on defense. So while it was a move to make room, I don't really know how much more could have been expected from a trade and keeping him wasn't giving us much value either.

I'd be fine with something similar to that. With Gionta signed and Josefson still in the mix, it wasn't going to happen. I've made my opinion known about Gionta and would have loved for the Devils to have signed Roy, and let Josefson have the Gionta role. My ideal 4th line has Zubrus-Josefson-Sislo. That's a really nice NHL 4th line in my opinion. Instead, you might get none of those players.


Agreed. There's gotta be a trade coming to free up space, but we had been saying that about the defense for a few years until Volch got bought out so we'll see what happens. We all know LL doesn't make deals just to make a deal, there's gotta be value in it for us.

Roy on a 1 year, $1 mill contract is a great deal. would've liked to see him in NJ for that price


I'd have paid him double that to be our 3C. We just have too many forwards to be signing more though.
