Thanks for everything. I can't think of a single person that had such a positive influence on a sports team for such a long period of time without ever playing a game.

I'd like to take this moment to reiterate my appreciation of the Tampa Bay Lightning for defeating the Rangers

#1310106 So now that 3-on-3 OT is happening, what about the format?

Posted by StormJosh on 17 March 2015 - 04:28 PM

I don't understand why an extra 5 minutes of 4-on-4 wasn't an option.


Given the options I would prefer 5 minutes of 3 on 3. I'd like to do whatever option minimizes the appearance of shootouts. Not because the Devils are bad at it, but because I enjoy watching the game more than the shootout.

#1224711 Would you take a shot at Yakupov?

Posted by StormJosh on 12 November 2013 - 10:26 AM

We don't run a system that is conducive to his style of play.  He is worse than Tedenby in the defensive zone.  While he is skilled offensively, he would never work here.  No way I trade any of our top assets (Larsson, Gelinas or Merrill) for him.   

We turned Kovalchuk into the league's best PKer and a responsible player in the defensive end. Defense can be taught, offense is much more challenging.

#1224678 Would you take a shot at Yakupov?

Posted by StormJosh on 12 November 2013 - 09:35 AM

I would take him in a heartbeat. Incredibly skilled player who is going through some growing pains like many young players. He led all rookies in goals and scoring last year I believe.


I doubt he is a flight risk. He chose to sign with the Sarnia Sting instead of playing in the MHL (russian junior league) or KHL when he had the choice. He wants to be an NHL player.


I would easily trade Larrson or Gelinas + others for him, even as Gelinas becomes one of my favorite players.

Not going to get into a thing about ELCs here, that aside I don't expect that Matteau is ready for the NHL.

Do ELCs have the same 'slide' provisions that they did in the previous CBA?

So far this has been the most informative GDT. I never cared for the seafood fork.

Go devils.

#1053762 Sykora officially signs

Posted by StormJosh on 05 October 2011 - 07:39 AM


Sykora is back. Contract details to be announced. I think somewhere TG said in the $800k range. I look forward to him being back, I think he is still a good NHLer (don't prove me wrong Sykora).

Too bad he couldn't be here last year, we could have entirely reunited a crappier version of the A-line.

Ah, now you find the time to respond to me. Too bad you didn't have the common courtesy to return emails or reply (even when called out) in Marketplace when i sent you pics of an item and you dissapeared. Pick your battles a little better.

Wow, you really hold a grudge well. Must have been a very long time ago cause I don't even know who you are. If it makes you feel better I humbly apologize for not getting back to you. fyi i dont have any pics

LOL, little Miss Innocent ass kisser...he means YOU as well. :rolleyes: I love your act at times i really do.

Discussing anything with you is a complete waste of time unless it agrees with you. You're a kid and i doubt anything i say will matter (or that you'll even listen) because if you are anything like you are on boards, it's a waste in private/in person.

can you please just shut up and let it go i had to read through like 5 pages of your bs and there is nothing relevant at the end of my journey
