#1199066 CLARKSON SIGNS w/TORONTO $36.75M / 7yrs

Posted by NJDevs4978 on 02 July 2013 - 12:27 PM

Eh it's his job to play hardball.

It's kinda like the opposite of what happens during salary arbitration between a player and a team. Teams will put down a player as much as possible to get the lowest salary judgement. I remember Lou's arbitration with Holik being pretty ugly.


His agent crying Lou is being cheap is one thing, making a douche comment like 'we didn't expect an offer cause of the team's financial issues' poisons the water for EVERY OTHER FA that might want to sign here too.

#1191483 2012-2013 NHL Playoffs

Posted by NJDevs4978 on 13 May 2013 - 09:18 PM

This is the MO for the caps franchise. I have no idea how it happens but it has persisted for decades. In the 80's, 90's, 2000's, 2010's. All they do is blow 2-0 and 3-1 series leads. I swear I think they've done it 3-4 times to Pittsburgh alone.

 

Yeah pretty much.  I can't imagine what it would be to be a fan of that franchise.  The Jets are the closest thing, but at least the Jets are sometimes numbingly bad.  The Caps every single year take you to the brink and find some gut-wrenching way to rip your heart out.

lol if Zach had demanded to play meaningless games when he was coming off injury a couple years ago people would praise his moxie, but since it's Kovy it's only because he wants to play in the Worlds.  I guess he didn't lead the team in scoring last year with a bad back during the playoffs.

#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.
