I'm incredibly superstitious, and I know how ridiculous it is.
For Christmas my sophomore year of college (12/2009 or thereabouts) I got a Devils-themed fold-up chair (one of these bad boys) and I never really used it until the second half of that awful J-Mac season when the team went on that ridiculous run. I swear, every time I sat in it during the games they'd win (I'm not exaggerating, they won at least 90% of the games where I'd bust out that ridiculous looking chair). I definitely associated luck with that chair from that point forward. They obviously didn't make it, so I retired the chair to my basement, thinking that it had run out of its juju.
...until the 2012 playoffs. Going into OT in game 6, I suddenly remembered the chair and thought "hey, why the hell not". I drove home from Rutgers with the sole purpose of getting that damn chair (only about 30 minutes, but still..see the insanity?). They obviously won, so I kept using it for the rest of that run. I watched game one of the Flyers series at a bar, big mistake obviously - watched the rest of that one in the seat and I was pretty sure something freaky was going on. One other particularly stupid example was..I think was game 4 or 5 of the SC finals (the game where Parise scored, I remember that much) I was visiting a friend's beach house in Avalon. The first thing I did when I got there was plant that stupid chair in front of the TV. They won, so clearly it was WORTH IT but I still get ribbed for doing that.
In summary, yeah I'm a little crazy. But that chair's back in my basement regenerating it's lucky juju for the next time the Devils make the playoffs, I can assure you guys of that
every single one of us should go out and get one of these chairs... no joke
I'm sorry but I can't refrain from saying this anymore...Adam Henrique has been absolutely horrible this season. He has been a total joke of a hockey player and it's time he gets benched or placed on the 4th line. He is not a second line center. I can't watch him coast on the ice while his unit concedes goals anymore. I've seriously had it with him .
And again, the refs in this league continue to be pathetically bad.
seriously? hes been a lot better then some of the others out there that consistently do absolutely nothing.. the guy had 4 points in his last 4games before last night 3 of which were goals... right 3 goals in 3 consecutive games... but hes crap alright deserves to be put on the 4th line yup
We need to ship Volchenkov out. Of the defensemen to be sent down for him, yes, I guess Gelly is the right choice, but a promising young defensemen shouldn't be sent down to bring back a progress stopper. Trade him for a bag of pucks as you did Tallinder, Lou.
i dont think volch is as bad or useless as everyone tried to make him out to be.. he plays a hard hitting physical defensive role which is what this team needs
are we really still making threads about this? ... ignorant and i dont know how you can call the guy a bum. He was a top skilled player in this league the best player on our team and is now the most elite player in the entire khl.. hes a bum? Im sure there was more to it then him just getting up and walking out on the devils.. use your head. You should realize that we needed to get out from under that contract if we hadnt we wouldnt have been able to sign all of the guys we did this off season to try to stack up some depth up front.. get over him..he did us a favor by leaving. Its not like he changed the team all that much by being here 2 out of the last three years with him the team didnt even make the playoffs. Much better off with out him..people like you sound like you have a real lack of knowledge when you say and make stupid threads like this.
This is the worst team in hockey.
What an enjoyable season this will be.
Weird another blown lead.
whos dpb? honestly its time for you to shut your mouth your a goddamn tool and no one on here likes you if you havent noticed from other threads.. you lack any type of real knowledge all you do is talk out of your ass. Feel free to go find another forum to troll around you bum.
i guess neither one of you have been around long enough to have seen the debacle of a thread that happened over chinese jerseys last time it was brought up.. a heated debate broke out .. im not the one with the issue i have a few china jerseys in my closet.. i have a couple authentics and a couple game worns as well but just sayin'. People on this board flip out about them.
I honestly think were going to have a solid team this season. Weve added WAY more depth up front and schneider really looks like a great goalie but I hope marty keeps it together for himself and the team
My first time attending a pre season game.. and man the trash definently comes out for these.. 2 ranger fans sitting behind us in 122 intentionally spilling beer on devil fans.. had a group of ranger fans arguing with us on the train telling us how jersey smells like sh!t this and that.. I told them I was from NY and if they had a problem with jersey to stay out of it
