#1306987 Devils Trade Deadline Thread

Yeah if anyone is traded, it's going to be to dump them for whatever, they will not be trading any pieces that yield a significant return.

:noclue:

It is what it is for now..

Maybe the culture will change when the new owners price out the younger / immature crowd in a few years.


That sounds awesome!

Truthfully, the thing I find funniest about this issue is how polarizing it is.

Also, if you are worried that your friends judge you in some way based on things that other people whom you don't even know are chanting, you might want to consider getting some better friends. If you didn't do it, what difference does it make to you what your friends think?

I'll throw in some comments on the anti-family angle this thread has taken.

 

I have a 7 year old daughter, so far I have only taken her to one game. The YS chant is something I can easily explain, if I needed to. I am pretty sure she's probably heard the word "suck" used in that context before, in a movie or on TV (where I am able to supervise but you can't catch everything), or more likely, in school or at one of her activities, which often involve older kids. 

 

"Flyers Swallow" is a little harder to explain, but its easy enough to distract her from hearing that because you know it's coming. Not to mention, when that many people are saying something, and you don't know what it is, you can't always make it out anyway. Especially if you are seven. 

 

From a parent's perspective, its a little more difficult to handle the drunk morons who spend the entire game yelling "Crosby's a jerk" for three periods for no apparent reason (this is based on actual experience, luckily she wasn't at that game). I mean seriously, is he that much of a jerk that you had to yell it for two hours? That's just obnoxious whether you have a kid with you or not. 

 

All of the above being said, as a parent, you KNOW there will be obnoxious drunks, offensive chants, etc. when you go to a sporting event. Some places are worse than others but it happens all over the place. So you as a parent have to decide whether you can handle your kid's reaction, otherwise you have the option of not going. I know my daughter will be fine, she understands right and wrong, and all of that.

 

As long as nothing is directed toward her, its all easily explained or ignored. When I was 10 I wore a Devils hat to a Rangers-Devils game at MSG and a grown man threatened to kill me if I didn't take my hat off. My dad just kind of rushed me away and that was that. It would take everything I have not to knock someone out if that happened to my kid, and honestly, that's probably what would happen. 

Is it obnoxious? Maybe. Annoying? At times. Would I expect anyone to take any steps to make it a more family friendly experience for my benefit? Not at all. I am opposed to the changing of the goal song, not because of the YS chant (which I didn't mind and participated in), but because it was a long standing tradition even before the chant. 

 

In terms of people "having to explain" these things to other adults who haven't been to a Devils game before or being embarrassed by them, that's nonsense. Any adult with a half a brain can figure it out, and being embarrassed over the conduct of other people you don't even know but share a team allegiance with is just plain dumb.

 

I had a friend who was a Kings fan and moved to NJ, and he never understood why the Devils fans chant "Rangers Suck" at games where the Rangers aren't even playing. To which I responded, "Well wherever they are they fvcking suck". He eventually became a Devs fan and realized this was true.

#1304779 Devils Trade Deadline Thread

The thing with Parise is I think it was pretty clear what he was going to do when he signed the one year deal. In that case Lou should have traded him before the season started while Zach still had one year of restricted free agency. We could have gotten some nice pieces from Minnesota as they obviously had a hard on for him. Lou thought he still had a chance to sign him and I think that's part of his problem.


I do believe Zach wanted the Wild as much as they wanted him. There was zero chance he was re-signing here, the one year deal was just to max out his value following a season basically lost to injury. He used us.

Posted by mfitz804 on 03 February 2015 - 07:40 AM

How come when a team switches goalies, you can't stop calling the new goalie by the old goalie's name, every time?

Also, what the hell is "he shoots, he SCARS!"

#1302919 The One Player Who Cannot Be On This Team Next Year

Posted by mfitz804 on 01 February 2015 - 02:48 PM

Zubrus can go. Ruutu can drive him wherever he's going.

Boucher and Matteau should be up next year. I'd rather watch young players trying to develop than old guys trying not to break a hip.

#1302763 Hasan's Brodeur Post

Posted by mfitz804 on 31 January 2015 - 03:36 PM

I can't stand Derek21. His likability and classy posts have long impeded my ability to hate ALL Rangers fans. :) Can't you just come on here once and be like "Marty blows, Devils have no fans!"?.

Well in all fairness, his #1 Brodeur moment was the Rangers winning the Conference finals in '94. We can just not like him for that.

:)

Mine was a save he made where he got pulled out of position, he had to reach back with the stick and pull the puck out, facing the wrong way. I don't remember when it was, the opponent or the result of the game, but I remember watching it and being absolutely dumbfounded as to how he stopped that puck.

Steiner Sports sold an overhead picture of that save for a while, I didn't have $400 for an autographed photo so I never got it, and I could never find that picture unsigned. I should start searching again, it was an awesome memory that belongs on my "Shelf of Glory" at work, where I keep my other collectibles.

EDIT: found the picture, not for sale but here it is for reference:

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.

Posted by mfitz804 on 10 December 2014 - 11:10 PM

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.

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.
