Well to be fair we haven't had a game since, so know one knows if our complaints are being taken. But probably because they still consider "sucks" as a bad word. So it won't win.
You might be talking about the song and not the chant, but the chant and the song are now married. So whether we're talking about the song or the chant is irrelevant since you cant get rid of the chant without getting rid of the song.
True story: Some preacher was performing (forgot who) and there was an hour delay to him coming on stage. Reason was because of all the Devils logos. He wanted them taken down. I'm not even kidding. He finally came on though.
This reminds me of concerts sometimes. Guy is standing up. Guy sitting behind him complains saying the standing fan is ruining his fun. Then guy standing says him having to sit will ruin his fun. Both are technically right with their complaints. But sitting guy wins because it's the easiest solution (standing guy sits down and isn't having fun, but he still sees the show, guy sitting down doesn't have to be moved to be behind someone who isn't standing)
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA @ a preacher complaining about the logos. WELCOME TO HELL!!
Seriously though, is he that clueless that he had no idea the NJ Devils were the primary tenant of the building?
And can this thread just be closed? I waited all offseason for threads that weren't about nothing, then this is the only thread getting action after the season starts. Damn.
RR pt 2 is clearly the best goal song choice due to tradition and it's a point in the game where the crowd gets reliably loud. Though someone suggested the "Hey! Hey! Hey!" section of Ain't Talkin' Bout Love. That was the only suggestion I liked, at all. It got energy, it's a rock song, it's got "Hey" in it.
The chant, while not offensive, is pretty lame, especially when we're getting crushed.
And JBJ sucks a fat one. Whoever chose a song by him should be fired, immediately.
I really hope they pick another song. I'm gonna flip out if this ends up being a story all year.
jagr is definently going to help this team where it needs help even though he is Jurassic hopefully he will stay healthy the pp is going to benefit from him being on it. ... then again last years power play had no where to go but up it couldnt really get much worse.
If I had a nickel for every time a player was supposed to help our middling PP....
Do you think I hate Marty? I don't I dislike him but you hate Parise. How sick you are!
When was the last time you posted something about the team? Instead of arguing how hating Parise is not in anyway similar to your constant detraction from what Marty does and has done for this team? Talk about beating a dead horse. I can take that you dislike Marty, but your constant pissing and moaning about everything is too much. I like this forum because I like to talk about hockey, not constantly be subjected to stupid posts about how you are holier than thou despite the fact that you jump at the chance to argue about anything just for the sake of being on the other side of the coin.
You're right about my hate for Parise and Kovy being silly and illogical, whatever, I've said it is, that's part of what I enjoy about hockey is being illogical and supporting the team no matter what, but you take this to a whole other level of ridiculous. It'd be one thing if you talked about anything else, but it's always Marty is terrible, you guys are stupid because you disagree with me, wah, wah, wah. Why don't you just go start your own forum called Marty Blows and you can commiserate with all the other Marty detractors instead of bringing this one down with your constant whining?
I've had multiple people tell me I'm the most negative person they've ever met and even I cannot stand you anymore. Pretty much all due to your recent fighting with other posters based on petty bs.
So much hate for Parise I am surprised, no I am not, just disappointed.
Are you serious right now? You hate on a current player and anyone who thinks it's a bit much should just shut up. We hate on a guy who dumped us and you're disappointed. Wah wah wah. World's smallest violin here, playing just for you.
It's not that ridiculous. He's a player, who while only having one season in the NHL, is not "developing", except for having to adjust to the NA game. The biggest question for me is whether or not his season was so good only because he was an unknown and know that he's on people's radars, things could be different. If he was any other player at the same age, he'd get $3.5 and multiple years no problem. I don't think it's completely unreasonable for him to ask for it. I wouldn't pay more than $3M per.
Pretty happy. The only thing that really surprised me was the trade. Didn't see that coming at all. Signing Clowe and Ryder will work. Clowe deal could hurt us, but doesn't include a NTC or anything, so that's good. Kinda expected us to make a splash this year with the cap dropping. LL knew he would be able to find value deals and he did with Ryder and Olesz. I'd say the "how pumped am I meter" is at about an 8/10 right now. Would be a 9/10 if we traded a D. Still got my fingers crossed we'll move somebody to leave open a spot for one of the young guns on D.
and he owes it all to Lecavalier. He's the one who got him a training camp invite as an undrafted player in Tampa. At some point they were both saying that they wanted to play their whole career together. It must be a really really though moment for them now.
which brings me back to a point i made awhile ago. And obviously its easy for me to say being just a regular guy but obviously when you can get a top of the line contract and long term. Personally i'd sign somewhere where i want to be and sign to a modest cap hit. Its still a lottttt of money but then we saw the stress and the trouble you get into if you don't live up to it. Fans turns against you. youre always stressed of being bought out or before to be sent in the AHL etc etc... again its easy for me to say but still.
If I thought I could negotiate a $85M contract over 11 years, I would do it in a heartbeat. I could care less who hates me after that. See ya on my private island, NOT, it's private biotch! lol.
"Quote of the Week II: I asked New Jersey Devils executive Lou Lamoriello if he was close to signing any of his potential free agents. He laughed. Lamoriello: 'You know better than to ask me that.' Me: 'Well, if you were close, you might say yes.' Lamoriello: 'Have you ever won a hockey game by being close?'"
