#1187534 GDT New Jersey Devils at Philthy 730PM MSG+

Posted by NJDevs4978 on 18 April 2013 - 09:58 PM

We're out of the playoffs for sure. They are just making sure they also get a sh!tty draft pick now.

 

lol with the draft pick nonsense.  Some of you guys act like they're going from 1-16.  The range is more like 8-12, realistically.


Not to mention the pick wouldn't mean diddly-poo if they lost 16 in a row to end the year, or 15 of 16.  Then they'd have bigger problems than any pick would fix.

#1185590 GDT: W667 or L8? Boston Bruins @ New Jersey 666 7:30 EST

Posted by NJDevs4978 on 10 April 2013 - 09:26 PM

Lou will deflect blame from himself as he always does and probably give PDB a one-year pass because of the injuries this year. He'll stick to the same recipe of acquiring cheap signings and utility players and nothing will change as far as that's concerned. Anyone expecting big changes this offseason will be extremely disappointed and i'm not being smug in saying that.

 

They have to add offensive talent.  There's no way in hell they're going into next season with this lineup, it just is not good enough.

#1184648 Clarkson never in shootout

Posted by NJDevs4978 on 08 April 2013 - 07:32 AM

lolololol

 

He was in like four shootouts in a row this year.  Did the same move every single time.  It worked the first time, by the fourth time goalies were leaning on the post cause they knew that move was coming.

Unbelievable.  Start a dumbass thread then get personal.   Who can take this thread seriously when it started with 2 years of bad decisions.  Getting to the SCF was full of bad decisions?  Sheesh. :rolleyes:

 

lol it's pretty laughable when it's the thread-starter that's getting on me for posting a YouTube in the spirit of the thread :P

#1181365 Season Ticket Holder Tuesdays

Posted by NJDevs4978 on 29 March 2013 - 10:17 AM

The absolute balls on the Devils for charging interest for monthy payments for ticket plans is huge. I wonder how many season or partial ticket holders have been scared off by these.

Not many considering the Devils' increasing number of sth's the past three years.

I get the principle of the thing argument but really 1% of $5000 tickets (a pair in the lower bowl) is $50. That's basically their service charge lol.

But honestly, if an extra $50 is really that big a deal then you probably shouldn't be buying season tickets in the first place.

Posted by NJDevs4978 on 23 February 2013 - 01:19 PM

Fayne could have had a better comeback than that... leaving Ovechkin in his sweet spot wide open... cmon kid

 

If he didn't leave Ovechkin, Ribiero just walks in all alone with the puck.  Dude was wide open in the slot.

#1171812 Josefson sent down, Loktionov called up

Posted by NJDevs4978 on 17 February 2013 - 06:27 PM

I think JJ will be a useful player. But the comparisons to Zetterberg on TSN' s broadcast of the draft seem ridulous now.

 

Who takes that seriously anyway...Larsson was compared to Sami Salo.

#1162971 Canadians Tell Gomez to Stay Home

Posted by NJDevs4978 on 15 January 2013 - 05:03 PM

What I don't get is where is the Habs' motivation to even do this? They don't save a dime by buying him out early.

I think the Rangers would buy out Redden anyway just because he's been the good soldier there for two years playing in the minors, but I don't see the motivation for the Habs to let Gomez go free unless there's something in this amendment I'm missing.

#1158031 2012 Fantasy Football Smack Talk

Posted by NJDevs4978 on 05 December 2012 - 05:53 PM

Let's see if I can do an ayl-style preview justice for all of 'two' games this weekend:

#3 Wack MC's (8-5, 1276.24 points) vs. #6 Waiver Wire Whining (7-6, 1275.58 points)

Wack MC's comes into the game with a 3-3 record in their last six games, after a 5-2 start that provided enough cushion to earn the #3 seed while Waiver Wire Whining rallied from a 4-5 record to make the playoffs with three straight wins, narrowly missing a fourth straight and an unlikely bye week despite scoring nearly 130 points in their last game. Currently Wack MC's is listed as an 18.57 point favorite based on current lineups but it was Waiver Wire Whining who won the two previous matchups this season - a 16.52 point win on Opening Day and an 8.72 point win in the penultimate week of the season. Wack MC's strength is the QB position, where he has current starter Andy Dalton and backup Matthew Stafford with 240+ fantasy points each this season, RB Marshawn Lynch with 160.7 points and the Denver D/ST with 156 points this season while WWW has fantasy MVP candidate RGIII with 300.9 points on the season. Other key WWW starters include WR Calvin Johnson with 174.8 points on the season and RB Frank Gore with 152.7 points, as well as recent fantasy sensation RB Bryce Brown with 59.2 fantasy points in his two starts for the Eagles.

The winner will face #2 New Jersey Swamps (8-5, 1426.08 points) in the next round with Wack MC's owning a Week 3 win over the higher seed 76.22-70.12 in one of the lowest-scoring games of the season, while Waiver Wire Whining lost two close regular season games to the Swamps in higher-scoring contests by totals of 105.24-96.44 and 134.22-129.82 in Weeks 2 and 13.

#4 Sworn Defenders (7-6, 1296.6 points) vs. #5 DR (7-6, 1287.44 points)

Sworn Defenders enters the postseason as arguably the hottest team, rallying from a 2-5 start to win five of their last six games, including a narrow 88.4-85.3 victory over Big Blue in what amounted to a play-in game for both teams during the final week of the regular season. One of the earlier losses was to DR by a score of 133.7-98.2 in Week 3, the teams' only matchup this season. Currently Sworn Defenders is listed as a 16.18 point favorite by current starting lineups and the #4 seed is led by a dynamic RB duo of Arian Foster (213.9 FP on the season) and Doug Martin (208 FP), as well as early-season MVP candidate QB Matt Ryan (251.9 FP). While Sworn Defenders is on an uptick, DR comes into the playoffs struggling with losses in three of their last four after a 6-3 start, scoring below 90 points in each the last six games of the season. DR's key players are QB Drew Brees (291.56 FP) and WR A.J.Green (176.5 FP), though his RB core is still reeling from the injury to starter Willis McGahee (113.2 FP), lost for the season three weeks ago.

The winner will face top-seeded Dynamo Nation (9-4, 1383.86) in the next round. If Sworn Defenders win this week, they'll be looking to avenge a 172.68-91.1 beatdown in Week 5 at the hands of the top seed. DR also lost their only game to Dynamo Nation in Week 7, but the score was much closer in a 94.52-92.38 decision.

#1156068 Election Night Coverage (radio)

Posted by NJDevs4978 on 07 November 2012 - 07:00 AM

Lost a little faith in the country tonight. People will vote for whoever gives them the most stuff.


It's this kind of simplistic rhetoric that makes me ignore politics all but one day a year. As if people couldn't have more than one reason for voting or the rich weren't voting for Romney because of what he'd give 'them'.

Maybe they're staunch Dems who believe in the platform and vote party line more than candidate. Maybe they don't like Romney because he's a chameleon who will say and do anything to get elected. Or perhaps they know how bad the economy has been under the Repubs the last 30 years and voted on that basis.

Saying someone wants Obama to win because they're freeloaders is just repeating the inane Rush/Hannity etc talking point and not giving other people any credit for thinking at all. As if the same nation didn't elect Bush for two terms. So we weren't freeloaders then but we are now? What bs. As if middle class families aren't entitled to make the best choice for them at the ballot box but the rich are.

#1153103 Krys Barch Twitter Rant

Posted by NJDevs4978 on 01 October 2012 - 07:24 PM

Because unlike players, the league is looking long term. Last time, they sacrificed the year to get the salary cap the players swore they would never accept. In doing so, they gave them a very high percentage of the revenue. It's time they split the revenue evenly.


The players had already capitulated on the cap before the season was canceled, they just wanted a number in the high 40's and the owners wanted low 40's. Funny how that wound up canceling the season and the cap wound up going to 70 million.

If they're thinking long-term they're not doing a very good job of it since we come up with this after EVERY SINGLE CBA. Other than the NBA recently with a two-month stoppage, other leagues have managed to get their **** in order in time to not miss games and the NHL has done this three times!

#1152329 NFL Week 3!!

Posted by NJDevs4978 on 25 September 2012 - 03:52 PM

The real refs do 'not' screw up this much, stop perpetuating this fallacy. Instead of there being a few bad calls a week that get talked about normally, now there are a dozen bad calls and common procedural errors every game. Errors on stuff we should be taking for granted in a professional game of the 'best sports league in America', like marking off a 40-yard penalty on a personal foul in Detroit-Tennessee or using a kicking ball for a two-point conversion last night in addition to all their other errors. Not to mention players and coaches are getting more out of control by the week due to frustration and taking advantage of seventh-rate refs (not even second or third-rate).
