#1105836 Why don't Devils get more national attention?

Posted by MadDog2020 on 09 April 2012 - 12:34 PM

People hate NJ.
It's as simple as that.
To those of you that are from New Jersey, have you ever gone somewhere and actually said you were from NJ?
People look at you like you're a piece of crap and compare you to the show Jersey Shore. We're known as the 'worst place' in America.
It's not a coincidence our football team isn't called the New Jersey Giants.

When I go out of state, I proudly tell people I'm from New Jersey. And if they give me a look, I tell them to go fvck themselves, because I'm from New Jersey.

#1105076 Torteralla fined $20,000 for comments..

Posted by MadDog2020 on 06 April 2012 - 04:47 PM

Serves him right for acting so unprofessional.
Of course everyone thinks what he said was true but just let your guys on the ice take care of it.


I can't stand Tortorella, but I hope his players chip in on the fine. What he said needed to be said.

#1100175 GDT: Pens @ NJD 3/17/12

Posted by MadDog2020 on 18 March 2012 - 01:00 PM

Today was only an optional skate? Why?
I forgot getting 14 shots on goal means you actually played a game the day before, oh wait..no it doesn't.
This is what I mean about PDB. These players need to work on their game more than ever right now.
This is when it matters. Work your ass off or go the fvck home.
Everyone knows the Rangers are probably going to play one of their best games of the year against us tomorrow.
They're pissed off, hate us, and want to stay in first place.
Hopefully the Devils go in there with a game plan of shooting more than 15 times on net or else don't even bother suiting up for the game.
I guess let the tough March schedule begin.

The tough March schedule has already begun, which is precisely why they had an optional skate today. You realize they've had a game every other day for about 2 weeks, right? DeBoer has to make sure he manages these guys so they don't burn the fvck out before the playoffs.

#1098742 30th Anniversary: McMullen Still Most Important

Posted by MadDog2020 on 12 March 2012 - 09:01 PM

I would still like to see McMullen honored somewhere in or around the arena. It doesn't have to be anything as crazy as what the Steelers have for the Chief, but something should be done for the man who brought the team here IMO.

Yep, I've been beating this drum for a while. Say what you want about McMullen- he certainly wasn't a perfect owner. But he is the reason we have the franchise we all love. There would be no Devils if it wasn't for Dr. McMullen. I had hoped they would change the name of Championship Plaza to McMullen Plaza. I think it would be a very nice tribute.

#1093682 Devils interest in Dustin brown

Posted by MadDog2020 on 24 February 2012 - 11:39 AM

food for thought:

greene/henrique/4th for brown/martinez

it's a gamble of a deal - it comes down to whether you think henrique could be a 30/70 guy in this league or not.

I'm not feeling trading Henrique at all. I bristle at the mear thought of it.

Today wasn't our day. Plain and simple. Just forget it and move on, as much as it sucks. On to Buffalo.

#1061214 GDT: Toronto Maple Leafs @ New Jersey Devils

Posted by MadDog2020 on 02 November 2011 - 09:01 PM

Wow so much for that. Broduer is awful right now. Whats going to be the excuse this year? We're heading in the same direction and nobody of any major significance is hurt. Are we just rebuilding or old or do the Devils just suck? Because i'm going with them just sucking. They aren't a good hockey team at all.

Right, no one of any significance is hurt. Only the top 2 centers, but they aren't really important.

#1059630 SNY's Daily News Live LOL

Posted by MadDog2020 on 26 October 2011 - 04:55 PM

Rule #1 of working in the NY media: Blindly hate the Devils because they don't play in NY, and are wildly more successful than any NY team not named the Yankees, while secretly wishing the Devils played at Madison Square Garden instead of the current laughinstock that does.

I just saw it on the Devils Facebook. If someone has a link, feel free to post it, as I'm on a Blackberry at work. Just wanted to get the info up and let everyone know.

#987835 GDT: Your New Jersey Devils vs. Les Canadiens de Montréal

Posted by MadDog2020 on 07 February 2011 - 12:35 AM

3 canes games we have to win, and we can believe.

Yeah. And we owe those motherfvckers more than any team has owed any other team in the history of fvcking sports. At the very least, we fvck their chances of making the playoffs. Let's start administering some payback, eh?

#987244 Raising No. 27

Posted by MadDog2020 on 04 February 2011 - 08:53 PM

The years were great. Too bad he wasn't until 10 years into his career. I don't want it to seem like I'm getting on the guy for being a very good player, but we are talking about a number retirement.

Ken Daneyko has his number retired, and he's not a HOF'er. Niedermayer is. Niedermayer became a HOF player while he was still a Devil. He deserves to have his number retired by this organization. Everyone is entitled to their opinion on Nieds (I, quite frankly, can't understand the lingering biterness among some and it drives me insane, but whatever), but no one can deny that #27 deserves to go to the rafters.

This team is just cursed.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but when the Rock was being built, didn't they have to tear up a very old cemetary on that plot of land? I thought I read that somewhere. That might explain the luck this team has had since moving to Newark.

#784712 So, Who's Left?

Posted by MadDog2020 on 15 July 2009 - 01:19 PM

Phil Kessel's out there as well. Not looking like he's headed back to Boston...


He'll be out for the first couple months of the season recovering from shoulder surgery, but after that, is there any reason to believe he won't return to form?

We don't have the pieces to trade, nor do we have the money to sign Kessel. Never happen.
