In Topic: Devils open practice Saturday 9/19 10 AM

19 September 2015 - 06:04 PM

it was interesting the harassment of the puck carrier.  Very high energy.  It would be nice to see this team play that way for 60 minutes.  The 3 on 3 OT was a lot different than prospects camp in July,  In July all 6 skaters hung around the slot area.  This one had quite a few breakaways.


Observations:  I know the Devils want to be a fast skating team, but aren't there some taller players with a bit of speed? Very Smirf like team.  Tlusty ripped a great shot in the 3rd practice session.  Over the goalies shoulder hit the crossbar into the net.  There was a new video called "Relentless" which seems to be this years theme.  They played a different goal song. Don't know if it was just for practice and they only played a 10 sec clip.  But they played it for each goal,  It was old time hockey with no ads on the boards.  The fire and ice lounges are completely being renovated.  In fact the construction crews were working during practice.

I really hope not many of the "Lou Rules" are abolished.  I like the fact the Devils were clean shaven until playoff time.  The Devils have a 3rd jersey the red and green.  If they want a 4th the white red and green.  The no high numbers was always waived for a very good player.  e.g. Richer, Jagr etc.  The no #13 was a Macmullin thing.  Did Lou keep it in place? Yes he did.  Not a big deal either way.  All these rules made the Devils unique.  Without them they just like the rest of the league.  Yes I'm an "older" fan, but seeing these other teams changing their uniforms is really head scratching. The jerseys most of the time are horrible.  Orange Oiler jersey at the draft anyone? :puke:

Thanks Lou for everything!  Funny how it all works out.  Lou hard balling Shanahan which led to strong words from Shanahan regarding Lou.  Shanahan gets all pissy signs with St. Louis(plus the Blues offered him really big bucks at the time .  Lou wins arbitration and gets the Devils Stevens.  Some twenty plus years later Shanahan hires Lou.
