In Topic: Chico Resch Talks Ceremony, PDB, Brodeur's Future, Playoffs

I'm going to be out most of the day today but I will transcribe what he said about Bryce tomorrow.

I called their program director. Not a show. I was told (and I quote) "how would Chico know that Brodeur is a distraction? He wouldn't. He's not a coach."

 

WFAN is like ESPN.  They made their reputations during a time when they were the only show in town and maintain their popularity because they've become the default mechanism for people. 

In Topic: If the Kurvers for Niedermayer Trade Never Happened

Today, 01:10 PM

I did...so much was made of Eric when he was in the Juniors, and I followed the Toronto vs. Quebec stats the entire second half of that season, hoping we'd get a crack at him. Alas, it was not meant to be. 

 

But we made out pretty well regardless, could argue we don't win some cups without Nieds. 

 

We likely don't win any of those cups without Niedermayer.  Just like we wouldn't have won them without Stevens or Brodeur.  Those 3 were the foundation for everything.  We were very lucky to have such a prolonged run with 3 HOF'ers in our lineup each night.  

In Topic: Name an NHL captain less skilled than Bryce Salvador

At least we know one stat Sal will finish the season leading... Most Hate Threads On NJDevs.com

 

He may even break the record Marty set last year.

 

Don't get too far ahead of yourself on that one.

I knew Chico wasn't going to pull punches. Dano seems like a company man to me. I base that on nothing. I hope I'm wrong. If he didn't tell me directly not to post it I would of post the juicy sh!t he said and what he thinks of Bryce as Captain.

 

This board would spin and go into a frenzy.

 

Nice article.  Love that Chico was and still is never afraid to speak his mind.  We were very lucky with what we had between him and Doc doing our broadcasts for years.

Who's to say the new owners won't do this too when it comes to the playoffs? What I highlighed works when the team makes the playoffs and management can do something like that to keep opposing fans out. So far we haven't even made the playoffs yet under the new owners and we are only in our second season with them.

A lot of people are making assumptions based on a single game last night with a team that hasn't made the playoffs the last 2 seasons and are comparing a playoff game from 2 years ago with a ton of bandwagon fans joining in on the first 2 rounds.

I guess anything to take a shot at ownership.


This coming from the guy constantly taking a shot at the former owner. That's rich. I didn't even blame Blitzer or Harris. For all I know, Weber or Oneill made the decision on how to price the rangers games. But keep making your assumptions bud.

Is it hard to jump down from that high horse you're always riding in on? Just wondering.
