#1217880 The Pete Deboer Thread

Posted by PWW on 18 October 2013 - 08:00 PM

Maybe Larsson and Fayne have bad attitudes.


I'd have a bad attitude if I had to watch a fringe NHLer (and I think I'm being nice by saying that) and a traffic cone on a nightly basis while I sat in the press box.

Posted by PWW on 17 October 2013 - 10:25 PM

Hes the only one thats got the balls to scrap in front of the net and play an all around physical game. Hes one of the only guys whos playing respectable hockey right now. Hes an invaluable asset to the team.


Welcome to the boards Mr. DeBoer.

#1215170 Thomas Hertl 4 goals against the Rags

Posted by PWW on 09 October 2013 - 08:31 AM

I'm surprised one of the Rangers goons didn't line him up at some point after that 4th goal because although that goal was sick, it was showboating at its best. You best believe that other teams have taken notice and this guy is gonna get pummeled at some point.  I love the skill, but at 7-2, rubbing it in your opponent's faces is hardly classy...(unless its the Rangers).


Disagree to the fullest extent. Here's the way I feel about "running up the score" in pro sports. You don't like it? Stop it. It's not like he was doing this to a pee-wee team, it was to a team that many predicted to be Cup contenders this year, a PRO team. And they just get manhandled by a kid.

#1214918 GDT: Game 4 Devils @ Canucks 10pm MSG+

Posted by PWW on 08 October 2013 - 09:28 PM

to think we have to watch a clown on skates for the next 5 years... someone was drunk when they made that move.


The dude may be slow, but he's been pretty good these first few games in my opinion. He bangs on the boards and forechecks like a madman. I'll take him over Clarkson any day of the week.

This looks shopped. I can tell from some of the pixels and from seeing quite a few shops in my time.

#1200324 Ryane Clowe signs with the Devils. 5 years. 4.85 per.

Posted by PWW on 05 July 2013 - 01:29 PM

My main issue with this is that we were a team last year that struggled to score goals and are in general a team that needs to score goals and we have lost two of our biggest goal-scorers the last two years and yet Clowe scored 3 goals in 40 games last season. He did underachive but this is a $5 million a year question mark. I would almost rather give Clarkie the 7 yr Toronto contract at the slightly higher cap hit and keep his 20-25 goals, almost.


I think Clowe is less of a question mark than Clarkson. He has been pretty consistent with his goal production over the last 5 years until last year. Clarkson is banking off one great year and a good 14 game stretch. Let's not forget he had 8 points over the final 34 games last season.

I doubt I'll boo him. I'll feel the same way I've always felt about him...apathetic. Glad he's gone.

#1198272 Devils select Steven Santini 2nd Round (42 overall)

Posted by PWW on 30 June 2013 - 06:48 PM

Sometimes I wonder if Lou just hears about guys who were Rangers fans growing up and then drafts them to forcefully convert them. Building the fanbase one draft pick at a time.

#1172220 Canadian Anthem/ Chants

Posted by PWW on 19 February 2013 - 12:59 PM

I seriously hope you only act like this to people who are a$$holes and I not to people who are just minding their business. I go to many road games and I show respect and I get respect back.


Obviously I don't pick out people who are just sitting there quietly enjoying the game and kids are off limits. But if they're high-fiving or if they start celebrating or yell anything anti-Devils, they're gonna hear it. Basically, if you stay low-key and just watch, I'm not gonna give you any sh!t. But don't expect me to sit on my hands if you come into The Rock and start jumping up and down in glee when your team is beating mine.

Well, I guess we won't be going 48-0 this year. I'm fine with 47-0-1 though.

#1161473 Rumor from Russian hockey writer: Kovy considering staying in KHL

Posted by PWW on 09 January 2013 - 04:55 PM

This is a lot of discussion and gloom and doom for a guy who hasn't missed any time at all yet. If he misses any games, I'll be mad, but until that time who cares what he decides to do. He's staying in game shape and not abandoning the fans when he doesn't need to instead of coming home and twiddling his thumbs waiting for the CBA to get ratified and for camp to start. He's not on the Devils' time right now, he has no reason to leave yet.

#1148473 Devils Fans in the NHL

Posted by PWW on 22 August 2012 - 12:07 PM

Monmouth County Devils fan checking in. There's definitely a pretty healthy mix of Rangers and Devils fans here because of how many transplanted New Yorkers there are, but the Devils fan population continues to grow, especially as the 80's and 90's kids get older, because they seem to be picking the Devils, which in turn is converting parents as well. Also, I've met a bunch of transplants from NYC who took to the Devils once moving here. I think the biggest reason you have so many young Devils fans here though is that hockey continues to grow in the county and it pretty much started when the Devils came to be and really boomed with the Cup wins. For a lot of young people, myself included, that was our first big exposure to hockey in the 90's (I was 7 in '95). It created a lot of first generation Devils fans, who are now growing up and starting to start families of their own and you're starting to get the first of the second-generation Devils fans.

Also, the argument against there being a "central Jersey" is hilarious. To call this area South Jersey is just nonsense. South Jersey might as well be the actual south. Hell, there's a fvcking rodeo down there. Monmouth, Ocean, etc. all take a bit of culture from both North and South and create something different with a mix of the the two. I can't believe that's even being debated. If you've ever been to REAL South Jersey and consider it comparable to the suburbs and shore areas here, then you're just being ignorant, plain and simple. Totally different worlds.
