#1313767 Lou's Future

Posted by MadDog2020 on 16 April 2015 - 04:45 PM

Great Lou story, piggybacking on the discussion about 90-91: my first experience ever sitting in a luxury box for a Devs game was game 6 against Pittsburgh in the playoffs that year (I was 12 years old). My dad's buddy's company had a box, and he had two extras and invited us. The box was right in back of who else's box- Lou's. My dad encouraged me to ask Lou to sign my program, but he was a pretty intimidating guy, particularly to a 12-year old kid like myself. So what happens next is the Boschman no goal. Some of the long-timers remember this disaster, I'm sure. In the second period with the Devils trailing 4-3, Laurie Boschman had what would've been the tying goal go in off his skate. It was clearly not kicked in. The TV replays confirmed this, but the NHL didn't use TV replays to decide those types of calls back then, and I guess the angle they looked at had some kind of fvcked up viewpoint that made it somehow look like Boschman kicked this puck in... Trust me- he didn't. Anyway, the goal gets waved off, everyone in the place loses their sh!t, and Lou picks up this TV monitor that was in front of him, SLAMS the sh!t out of it, and storms out of the box. I mean, he fvcked this monitor up, it didn't display a picture for the rest of the game after that. The Devils wound up losing 4-3, and then they got blown out in game 7. Pittsburgh went on to their first Cup. I still think we were robbed in that series to this day. What's cool is Lou came back later to his box, and my father asked him to sign my program (I thought Lou would stab me if I asked him for an autograph after I saw him go ape on that monitor 8 feet in front of my face lol). He actually couldn't have been nicer, and he signed my program... Which I still have btw.

#1310568 If we pick 7th.... Who would you choose.

The Devils have a very difficult stretch coming up - it's not particularly likely that they stay in 8th.

From your lips to God's ears...

Clearly Hank is benefiting from the team and system in front of him and isn't really all that talented, if an unproven kid can come in and put up similar numbers.

See what I did there?

Trap brah. System brah. Fatso brah.

You obviously don't understand the game.

Yeah... You might wanna check yourself on that one, given the argument you just decisively lost.

All in all, happy to be able to get some decent picks for two guys whose cumulative age adds up to 82.

Do you realize how idiotic you sound with this post.

No more idiotic than you do in most of yours jackass. And quite frankly, I couldn't care less.

Because in some cases it's like bringing a girl I'm dating to her first hockey and/or Devils game - trying to impress - those kinds of situation. It's off putting. Try brining a family friend too, or a significant other's family to a game, it's just stupid.

Simple- if you're that worried about it, bring her bowling. Problem solved. I'm going to a game with a bunch of coworkers next week- if they judge ME based off of a bunch of a$$holes chanting 'you suck' 'flyers swallow' blah blah blah, then they're pretty fvcking stupid people to begin with. And seeing as how I could give a fvck what people think about me- particularly stupid people- I'm not gonna give a sh!t.

Most of the people I bring are 22-28 - and they all think "what's with the white trash chants?" that's pretty much what we collectively look like.

Then I'd suggest bringing people who don't have a stick jammed up their ass. Like it, hate it, who goes a sh!t- this has been blown so far out of proportion it's obsurd. I have no idea why you guys are still wasting time arguing this garbage.

It's not a tradition, its an insecure plea for help.

Then do yourself a favor and stick a sharp object in your ear the next time you hear it. Maybe that'll help.

I'm not sure that it was directed at Oates - it could just be that coaching changes in general mean less ice time for Jagr. But it could also be a shot at Oates. Either way, he can't be here much longer.

I hope it was a shot at Oates. Oates fvcking blows as a coach.
