#1328420 2015 NHL Off-season Thread

Posted by MadDog2020 on 16 September 2015 - 04:43 PM

haha i dont think its gonna be the case. I'm just getting really really really sick of hearing that im somehow not "allowed" to hate him just cause he donated $10 millions to sick kids. Sure it's generous and great and Im glad he did it. Im super happy for the kids just as im super happy for the education the kids got in Atlanta... That doesn't mean i HAVE to like those guys.

Hate him all you want man, if Lundqvist did the same thing I'd still hate him (in the hockey sense), but I'd acknowledge what an admirable and generous act it is to donate that kind of money to such a worthy cause.

Bill Cosby donated $20 millions to Spelman College in Atlanta at some point... what an amazing human being lol

If in 30 years we find out PK Subban has been a sociopathic serial rapist for the better part of his existence, then feel free to get back to me. [emoji57]

#1326100 Adidas gets NHL jersey deal. Starts 17-18. Advertising on jerseys poss

Posted by MadDog2020 on 17 August 2015 - 03:29 PM

Oh for fvcks sake.

Adidas has a knack for making some of the worst uniforms in college sports. Like, we're talking hideous, embarrassing stuff. Messing with tradition, using terrible lines/designs.. I actually read a good article about this somewhere. I'll see if I can find it.

I hope they have limited creative influence at best.

I should add that if Adidas pulls that stripe sh!t, I'm also done with buying jerseys. G'head- just keep pissing off the traditionalists like myself 'til ya got nothing left ya fvcktards. Keep trying to squeeze out every last fvcking haypenny at the expense of the people who actually give a fvck.

NJDevs is the best place to discuss Devils hockey anywhere on the internet. Love this place, and love interacting and talking with all of you. We may not agree on everything, but what fun would that be? [emoji3]

Knife to my gut on one single thing? Parise leaving. He was the heart and soul... When he left, it felt like that had been ripped out. Still does a little.

New York tourism accounts for 60+ million people traveling here per year, they were always going to need 3-4 airports to serve that amount of people, with the New Jersey one having to be in either Hudson or Essex Counties to service them.

Without that tourism factor (which is a ridiculous number of people to be coming in and out of here), half of New Jersey being a 1-2 hour drive to Philly's international airport, and the other half being a 1-3 (traffic) hour drive to JFK/LGA would probably be enough grounds for New Jersey to not get its own very well-served 3-terminal international airport. But yeah, 60+ million people go to New York, so they needed New Jersey to have a legit airport.

Jersey City/Hudson County's only booming now because NYC really can't fit more new development. Port Elizabeth is one of the biggest ports in the nation because NYC couldn't fit any more port infrastructure. Ikea was in Elizabeth because they previously couldn't secure any deals to put one in NYC til Bloomberg opened the floodgates to certain areas of development. Jersey Gardens is not where it is because it's exclusively for the people of North Jersey, and so on and so on. And that's all a metaphor for a lot of North Jersey's infrastructure, population, mentality, etc. really.

We're all very confused as a population, and slightly "used" even. Especially now, the hipsters and yuppies are moving up here because they can't afford Brooklyn. They have no interest establishing roots here or respecting and participating in the roots that did exist before they got here; they're in and out in 4-5 years until their "NYC adventure" is over and all the amenities they need (the Whole Foods and Starbucks and vegan grocery stores) have popped up just for them; its growth is similar to a mining town, and in the middle of all of it, NEW JERSEY culture, landmarks, establishments, philosophy, accents, personalities, and pride are taking and will take the hit. It's harder to find a Taylor Ham, Egg, and Cheese or a good sandwich or pizza here in 2015 than it was in 2005. But I can find you 4 different brands of quinoa at my local grocery store now. New Jerseyans are moving to North Carolina and Florida.

The Devils sucking right now isn't doing us any favors on the sports end, we're already a dying breed. We're well represented all over the country and yet we're a dying breed here in New Jersey. That's why the mentality up here is so volatile when it comes to sports. All this pushing and pulling that NYC does to our culture and actual physical world takes its toll, and to zoom back in a little bit, it manifests itself in there being "Rangers bars" in Hoboken and Jersey City, and "New York" Red Bulls being a team. It manifests itself in "Jersey pride!" people posting "I Bleed Blue" on their Facebook and Modells carrying 14 different Rangers jerseys to the 1 or 2 Devils jerseys they have in stock.

I'm starting to sound like thecoffeecake!

It's pathetic. That's all I can say. Pathetic. Let these stupid fvcking hipsters go live in the Bronx or Queens or Staten Island so they can lame up those sh!tholes with their hipster vegan caramel macchiato frappucino bullsh!t. And anyone who claims 'Jersey Pride!!' and 'I Bleed Blue!!' in the same sentence needs a swift kick in the tooth. If you're from Jersey and root for that sack of sh!t franchise, you aren't a real New Jerseyan- you're a fraud wanna-be NY'er. So do me a favor and get the fvck out of my state.

I'm not saying that yet. Things can change quickly. I do think the Rangers will win, but things change fast in the play-offs.

As soon as Kreider scored the tying goal in game 5, I knew where this was headed. As I said last night- as easy to predict as the sun rising in the east and setting in the west. The Caps just can't close to save their lives.

#1315618 Lou Lamoriello Appreciation Thread

Posted by MadDog2020 on 04 May 2015 - 06:56 PM

For the first time in 28 years, it's no longer Status Quo. For the first time since I was 8 years old, Lou Lamoriello is no longer the General Manager of the New Jersey Devils. It is truly the End of an Era, and what an era it was. 3 Cups. 5 Eastern Conference Championships. 9 division titles. 21 playoff appearances in 28 years. Making perennial winners out of what was once called a 'Mickey Mouse operation'. Lou is one of a kind. He IS the New Jersey Devils. He has made the Devils what they are. Without him, this franchise would've been in Nashville years ago. He gave us everything he had, he made the Devils feared and respected, and he did it his way all the way to the end. So I wanted to say THANK YOU LOU. Thank you for raising the bar as high as it could go. Thank you for making winners out of the Devils. Thank you for giving us a team we could be proud of year after year. Thank you for always striving to make this organization the best it can be. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING. And congratulations on an amazing career!831c49587f13cf0ddfdeb5f94f58d944.jpg

Tough when you have to beat two teams. Hopefully the Caps win both in DC and have a chance to stomp these fvckers out for good in front of the all the suits and hipsters at the World's Most Overrated sh!thole.

I really wish that those of us here in the Tri-State had the option of watching the national broadcast instead of this 3-hour long Ranger infomercial.
