#1185317 Elias about Lou's free agents approach

Posted by ATLL765 on 10 April 2013 - 04:33 PM

"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?'"

Don't worry about Lou's sh!t, he's got it under control.

#1184266 OOT Thread

Posted by ATLL765 on 07 April 2013 - 08:29 AM

Nice to see Ovie bounce back and challenge for the Richard after every analyst and expert in this league had him dead and buried, bolting to KHL, bought out, traded and what have you.

This has started to make me think I undervalued Oates' contribution to the offense....

#1183060 All trade deadline talks & rumours

Posted by ATLL765 on 03 April 2013 - 02:41 PM

But they weren't added during the craze and excitement of the deadline! Lou should have held off on those trades so that we could join in the fun.. Who cares if you add scoring pieces before the deadline?

Sometimes it's like everyone forgets there's an offseason coming up, where buyouts will be flying around. Why in the world would Lou trade away important assets when he might not need to do so if he just waits and tries the UFA market. I have a strong feeling that these buyouts, *cough*cough* Luongo who just said in his press conference that his contract, "sucks", won't be trying to sign the biggest and best deal they can. They may look for just a reasonable price.

#1182622 David Clarkson

Posted by ATLL765 on 02 April 2013 - 02:06 PM

Are you guys for real? It's like some of you guys are in some weird on off relationship with Clarkson. One minute, he's a pos, next minute, he's our guy who scratched his way to the top.

Get over it. He's not a 30 goal scorer, never was, never will be. You guys remember the year Clarky got hurt? In 09-10, he had 4 more points than he has now, and that was in 10 more games. So he was great then, deserving of the contract he would get in the offseason, now he's terrible....Make up your minds.

#1177658 As Devils fans please show Hedberg some respect

Posted by ATLL765 on 11 March 2013 - 12:44 PM

Sneax I don't like the way you speak but I have no real way of arguing these points so go away.

Edit: Is he gone yet?

#1176889 RUMOR: Devils interested in Dany Heatley?

Posted by ATLL765 on 08 March 2013 - 10:45 AM


With that... does Minny still pay that salary, or do they just the paper hit?       I don't think we are worried about cap hits this year.

Minny is within 1.2mm of the actual cap;   and could add 2.5mm today or 5.3mm at the deadline.

Meanwhile, NJ is 12mm actual cap free, we could add 23mm right now, or 49.5mm at the deadline.  

Malkin and Crosby to NJ for Tallinder and Teddy, mark it down. We got the cap space, it could work.

#1171480 attendance..

Posted by ATLL765 on 16 February 2013 - 01:56 PM

Believe me when I say that it was not unprovoked. Drunk guys and girls in Phailure jerseys cursing loudly in front of families with little kids, etc... The guy who got stuff thrown at him was the first one to throw his bottle at someone near my row. Taking things into our own hands when security doesn't have the balls to kick these scumbags out, it's a way of crowd control and partly the reason we're seeing less and less of these dirtbags coming back. They're having some of the worst most embarassing experiences in their short years of hockey/alcoholism and the more we humiliate them after they step out of the line, the less likely they are to come back anytime soon. And the Devils winning consistently is a big help.

 

Our fanbase is not devoid of idiots, but no fanbase is, except Nashville apparently where there was a fight at a game this week for the first time ever, which is amazing to me.

Back to my point though, whenever there's alcohol involved, there's going to be idiocy. I was in sec 212 for the game on Tuesday against Carolina and I should have expected it since it was a college night game, but one Devils fan was incessantly raining down the dumbest insults I have ever heard on a Canes fan a couple rows down. I let it go for a while since the Canes fan was engaging him back and it hadn't gotten too obnoxious yet, but by the 3rd, all this guy was yelling at the Canes fan, who at this point had ignored this guy for the past hour, was things about his junk and liking dick. To make it worse, his white trash gf was egging him on. I finally told him to just stfu and let me watch the damn game. I mean there were little kids right in front of me and this guy was going all game.

Imo, the way heckling works at a sporting event, is that you keep the insults sports or geography related and no one should care so long as you're not screaming swear words constantly in front of kids. It's when people gotta start yelling about how the other guy is a pos or anyone mentions a female, that's when things go downhill fast.

#1171474 So what do you think about the shootout?

Posted by ATLL765 on 16 February 2013 - 01:48 PM

Pure gimmick and I hate it. I miss the old (read-- traditional or real) NHL where teams might even play to a tie (G-d forbid). As for people who hate ties: while I understand everyone has an opinion, there was/is an array of options to minimize the number of ties that didn't reduce hockey games to a random series of artificial breakaways. Some of those are even mentioned earlier in the thread. For me, the easiest solution is the one already on mention here. Simply make a tie less lucrative by using a 3 PT. win system. By only giving 1 point for a tie it makes it far less attractive to play to the tie. There ya go. To help things along play 4 on 4. If the NHLPA won't do 10 minutes perhaps an midway point could be reached? It would sound silly, but who not play to say 8 minutes? What law says we have to play to divisibles of 5?

One last point is that I don't understand why more people aren't concerned that there is an entire segment of the game today that has zero bearing on the playoffs. What sport does this? Does football get rid of kickoffs for the post season? Does basketball do away with free throws? Yet my beloved hockey decides a large percentage of it's games using a system and a skillset that, come playoff time, is thrown away until the following season. Even if you hate ties you've got to admit that that is ridiculous.

 

 

No 8 mins, has to be increments of 5. That's sport rules man. It's in the handbook all of us men are given at birth, duh.

Honestly, I didn't mind the shootout at first, maybe because I was 15, but as time went on, it sucked. It sucks that a real sport was played and a real struggle occurred to try to win the game, but then it's decided in a 50-50 coin flip. It drives me insane. The Devils are great at shootouts as I think we delved into during our great run on them last year, but even so, they're a 50-50 coin flip on the whole and that's no way to end game.

#1167640 I had a dream where the Devils were heavilied rumoured to get Ovechkin

Posted by ATLL765 on 31 January 2013 - 03:47 PM

****WARNING: SERIOUS BOREDOM AT WORK CREATED THIS****


I have a dream that one day Devils nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these goal's to be self-evident: that all Devils are created better."

I have a dream that one day even the state of Pennsyltucky, a state sweltering with the heat of Bryz's implosion, sweltering with the heat of Penguin dissapointment, will be transformed into an oasis of losers and never were's.

I have a dream that my twenty Devils will one day play in a league where they will not be judged by the ilk of their system but by the content of their play.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day, down in Newark, with its vicious Clarksons, with its GM having his lips dripping with the words of genius and old schoolification; one day right there in Newark, Kovy and Ovechkin will be able to join hands with the North Americans and Czechs as teammates and brothers.


Is this how your dream went? Because that's how I pretended it went and how I then transcribed my imagining of your dream, lol.

#1166789 Bamboozled by the Devils?

Posted by ATLL765 on 28 January 2013 - 11:02 AM

What a waste of time. That woman that wrote the article should be banned from being a journalist. She took the easy way with this one. Everybody knew a lockout was coming this year, long ago we all knew it. This guy paid, up-front, for his tix, knowing the season was likely to be shortened, if not cancelled. Stupid move on his part because the fine print covers it all. If he chose the monthly payment plan, he'd have spent nothing until now, but because he wanted to pay up-front, he wants to complain now. Well, too bad for you. This was just plain lazy journalism. I bet she couldn't find anyone who was really bamboozled, so hey, I bet I could write an attack on the Devils based on a situation out of their control.

#1163166 Downloadable Schedule Now Available on Devils' Site

Posted by ATLL765 on 16 January 2013 - 11:59 AM

Did you use this URL? http ://devils.nhl.com/schedule/full.ics

I did mine yesterday, had no issue at all so it definitely works.

Just take the space out between http and :// if I let it stay as a full link it shortens it.


I didn't put the full URL like you listed. Got it to work now. Thanks.

#1152441 Romney on the 47%

Posted by ATLL765 on 26 September 2012 - 12:27 PM

I don't know if you saw ATLL, but I took specific pains not to say Romney was taken out of context, but you're the second person to say I said that. I'm somehow ridiculous, but you guys are comfortable ignoring direct statements and putting your own in their place.

Maybe that's how bias can't be seen by you guys, you refuse to comprehend anything that isn't fitting with what you know must be happening.


Ok. Maybe you didn't say specifically that he was taken out of context, but instead you just said the tape was incomplete and edited, because that's not the exact same thing as saying it was out of context.

#1152431 Romney on the 47%

Posted by ATLL765 on 26 September 2012 - 11:15 AM

I didn't say Romney was taken out of context, I said we can't know for sure without the full answer. Just as with you saying I was implying the Romney clip was edited together when I didn't, you need to stop assuming what I think

I do think Obama meant you didn't build all your business because of the help those other things provided. "that" can't be roads and bridges, that's a plural, that has to be referring to the singular business and, IMO, fits Obama's ideology that people who are successful don't fairly share or give credit to people who he feels created the environment for their success.

If we can reasonably assume what Romney said was true because it fits his MO then we can reasonably assume that Obama meant business because it fits his MO and the wording fits best.


You're officially in the bubble now man. Romney saying 47% of the country are unconvincable bums is being taken out of context and blown out of proportion, but Obama misspeaking in the "you didn't build that" quote, that's fine by you because it's representative of Obama. That's bullsh!t and you know it. Obama CLEARLY meant that to be the bridges and roads, not the business. Otherwise why the fvck did he even mention bridges and roads. You're so far up Fox's ass, you couldn't tell bias from last night's bologna in Hannity's stomach.

As Milton Friedman said, it's always the other guy that's greedy.


And just like Milton Friedman, Parise is a douchenozzle.

#1148897 Devils Dancer - Fan Favorite - Vote Gabrielle!

Posted by ATLL765 on 25 August 2012 - 10:53 AM

I have to admit all these 'please vote for' threads lately have me thinking about what happens the first time two NJDevs members have a different significant other they want to get votes for in the same contest.


Or worse yet, they, unbeknownst to them, have the SAME significant other that they try to get votes for, lol.
