#1295032 GDT: 12/13/14 Devils @ Stars

Cangi calling Kinkaid, Schneider again. Good job buddy.


I guess technically Cory WAS out. He'd been out for 18 minutes, but still....

Cory Schneider, the Dennis Rodman of hockey.


Rodman knew how to hang on to rebounds, though.

Yeah man, totally impacting the site. EVERYTHING IS AT RISK


I didn't say anything was at risk, I said it's stupid and unenjoyable. There are plenty of other ways to know who we are playing. But these GDT thread titles are not witty, and they have no purpose.

I swear, some of you people don't even read things before you respond to them.

#1294331 GDT: 12/9/14 MC Hammer v. MechaGodzilla

Posted by mfitz804 on 09 December 2014 - 10:24 PM

You're happy? You can honestly tell me that right now you think of the team and smile? We lost. I don't care that tomorrow I'll wake up and realize it was good to get a point. I don't care we were injured and playing our backup goalie. We were WINNING WITH 3 MINUTES TO GO AND WE FVCKING LOST.
Fvck your happiness. I'm not. I'm pissed. I love this team and I feel very UNHAPPY when we lose.
but to be fair, you say this every day during every game and only quote yourself when you're right


I said I was happy with one point in tonight's game. I didn't say i "look at this team and smile". Yes we were winning with 3 minutes left, despite having no offense, our backup goalie, and our defense giving up way too many shots again, against the team with the best Goals Against in the league and probably one of if not the best offenses. If you don't realize that in that situation it's good to walk away with a point, then you need your head examined.

So fvck my happiness and fvck your inability to read and lack of common sense.

Is anyone else finding these non-informative GDT titles a little off putting? Sometimes I dont recall who we are playing next and these threads don't help. I know we aren't playing against a giant lizard because Chara is injured.

I know I'm not the only one who does this kind of stuff.

#1284184 General Questions about Devils History

Posted by mfitz804 on 23 October 2014 - 02:02 PM

For those who prefer a different format for the list:

 

http://www.hockeydb....dr00007066.html

 

Interesting things I saw:

 

1) I didn't realize the Devils drafted Mike Peluso as a 19 year old in 1984.

 

2) Eric Weinrich (1985) had some pretty good hype and had a nice NHL career, I think he was expected to be like a Brian Leetch type and that never really happened. 

 

3) Kevin Todd (1986) had some pretty good hype as well. He had one fairly good year (21G, 42A) but never really got to that level again. 

 

4) Jim Dowd and Brendan Shanahan were drafted in the same year. Never realized that.

 

 

I also find it fun to see who they could have drafted. This list is by no means exhaustive, and I am not suggesting we SHOULD have taken them instead of who we took, its just interesting. These are players that were available when the Devils picked:

 

1982: Dave Andreychuk

1983: Can Neely

1984: Ed Olczyk, Al Iafrate, Pert Svoboda. 

1985: Joe Nieuendyk, Mike Richter (we had two picks before they were picked)

1986: Vincent Damphousse, Brian Leetch, Adam Graves (We picked Neil Brady 3rd overall...played 89 total NHL games)

1987: John LeClair, Eric Desjardins, Simon Gagne (all available for our 2nd pick, we took Ricard Persson)

1988: Mark Recchi, Tony Amonte, Rob Blake (we picked 3 times before they were drafted), Joe Juneau, Alex Mogilny (we picked 4 times before them); our first two picks played a total of 63 NHL games combined. That was a bad year lol. 

1989: Bobby Holik, Olaf Kolzig, Adam Foote

1990: Felix Potvin, Slava Kozlov. We got some guy named Brodeur, only the best pick we ever made. That was the 20th pick too, best goalie in history passed over 19 times. 

1991: Peter Forsberg

1992: Martin Straka, Darren McCarty

1993: Saku Koivu, Jamie Langenbrunner, Kevin Weekes, Vinny Prospal

1994: Jose Theodore, Daniel Alfredsson (drafted in round 6, a lot of balls dropped there)

1995: Nobody major

1996: Zdeno Chara (we picked 5 times before he was selected)

1997: Nobody exciting

1998: Nobody great

1999: These were some boring years!

2000: Ilya Bryzgalov

2001: Mike Cammalleri, Jason Pominville, Patrick Sharp

2002: We did not have a first rounder, still could have drafted Johnny Boychuk

2003: Ryan Getzlaf, Patrice Bergeron, we took that Parise guy.

2004: Corey Schneider

2005: Justin Abdelkader, Paul Stastny, Kris Letang, Johnathan Quick

2006: Nothing great

2007: Our first pick was #57, still could have had Wayne Simmonds

2008: Derek Stepan, Jared Staal

2009: Tomas Tartar, not much else

2010: Tyler Toffoli

2011: Not much

 

 

I kind of mailed it in on the last 5-6 years, got tired of looking!

#1272691 Let's start a pool of where Brodeur will end up

Posted by mfitz804 on 04 July 2014 - 12:03 PM

Put Nabokov in front of our defense and he would easily have better numbers than Brodeur IMO.


Shouldn't our goalie be BEHIND the defense?

No wonder we missed the playoffs...

#1261221 Selanne's Moment: Probably One of the Best Moments of this Season

Posted by mfitz804 on 15 April 2014 - 11:10 AM

hypothetically, if Marty announced last week that he was retiring, then I suppose a little more could have been done, but to have both teams & refs stand on the ice, have him named all 3 stars (thus comparing him to gretzky), dim the lights and have stars shining on the ice as he skates around is a little much IMO.

 

Agreed. Naming Selanne all three stars was cheesy. Actually, naming Brodeur the #1 star was a little cheesy, he didn't exactly earn it in that game.

#1259501 In a Season of Problems, Brodeur was the Biggest

Posted by mfitz804 on 08 April 2014 - 03:40 PM

46 games decided by one goal. Sure, its all Marty's fault. Not the fact that we can't score.
