In Topic: Another Chump Move by Kova;chuk

Yes, but the team was playing very well going into that Final iirc. Could the Devils have won without Stevens? (I honestly don't know, I was fairly young in '03)

Stevens had paid his dues and was close to retirement anyway. Kovy was not and still in the prime of his career. Were both needed? Kovy was definitely needed, but I don't know if Stevens was.

Stevens was the heart and soul of that team. He was a force. Hell, he practically killed Paul Kariya. Yes, he was definitely needed and, although they were the better team in the finals, I don't think they win in 2003 without him.

In Topic: Your Thoughts About: Ownership

25 August 2015 - 09:47 AM

I have no issues with ownership thus far.  They are re-investing in the arena and upgrading the off-ice management of the team.  The on-ice product is a much harder/longer work in progress, and I'm glad they are taking the long view on things, rather than go for short term fixes.   

 

We have seen a lot of change this offseason, and most of it I'm in favor of.  That being said, if they start tinkering with the logo or our primary jerseys, I'm going to have a big problem with them.  An alternate jersey is inevitable, and it likely will be horrible looking since most 3rd jerseys are.  But the primary jersey should not change at all.

"perhaps with Adidas’s familiar three-stripe trademark being added to some or all team jerseys"

 

I cant even relate to "Adidas" with hockey...the only thing that relates to me and Adidas is Run DMC! I'm gonna have nightmares with Run DMC wearing Adidas sneakers NOT tied and on ice?! "My Adidas". I'm just shaking my head with this one.

 

How the hell did these two companies lose to Adidas?! Under Armour and Bauer Hockey

 

Lots and lots of this

The day they allow advertising on jerseys is the day I've bought my last jersey. That's where I draw the line. I'm sick and tired of the shameless money grabs every time I turn around. There is advertising literally permeating every bit of empty space everywhere in every professional sports venue in North America- can we leave the fvcking jerseys alone please? PLEASE?! How much fvcking money is enough? (Of course we all know the answer to that- no amount of money is enough, just ask the NFL).


Couldn't agree more. And the Adidas stripes are horrendous, even on jerseys that already have stripes (see 2015-16 Juventus jerseys) .

In Topic: How many Devils fans that post here are following Lou in Toronto?

11 August 2015 - 01:14 PM

I think Lou may be in for a rude awakening in Toronto. I'm not sure just how much control he will have, but his rules may be too much of a culture shock.

 

That's exactly what that organization needs, a complete change in culture.  Other than printing money, they have done nothing else very well over the past 30 years.
