Lol there is gonna be a generation that only knows him as a horrible broadcaster

 

Y'know, it really sucks because he was my first favorite player that I ever had for the Devils. Then I switched to Rolston and my god look how that turned out......

But with a team lacking any kind of scoring talent, trapping is really the only way to pretend to be competitive on a nightly basis. We might not win much, but we won't get blown out the way we were.

In Topic: Flyers have a new coach

Interesting hire. You never know how a coach will adjust from the NCAA to NHL but I think this move has some good upside for the Flyers. I'm sure Hextall knows Hakstol well since his son Brett played for him at UND.

So you're saying that Ron Hextall's son, Brett Hextall, played for Dave Hackstol? Please try saying that ten times fast!

In Topic: A Demographics Poll!: Devils or Rangers

North Hudson County; more Devils fans. I make that distinction because Hoboken and downtown Jersey City has more Rangers fans: the yuppie, transplant, hipster effect, etc...


 

I've met a ton of Devils fans from Staten Island. Always surprises me but I can see why. Without traffic, you're like a 20 minute drive to the arena.

Staten Island should be part of New Jersey if it weren't for a poorly written treaty and a speedy (for his time) ship captain.

I really do not think NJ could support an MLB team.  First would be where would you put the stadium?  Second I just don't think this area has enough interest and backing to support one.  I know teams like the Patriots and Blue Claws do well in NJ, but they are at a low level and they present themselves differently as more family entertainment at affordable prices than MLB which is "come see the best players in the world!" kind of thing.

 

Anyways apparently the Devils signed a 1-year extension on the lease for the AHL Devils up in Albany.  Rumors are this is basically giving Lou and the owners more time to get this set up for them to move to NJ as Lou has recently said (or was it the owners or both?) that they would love for their AHL team to be closer.  I would love this and I think the most obvious location would be Trenton.  Next option would be to share the Rock and the third would possibly be AC.

 

Trenton makes far more sense than AC. Trenton is at least near the Mason-Dixon of the North Jersey/South Jersey split for sports, even if it is pretty solidly Philly country. Atlantic City is a dying town in the heart of Flyers Country with not much around it going for it
