at game, haven't seen tv broadcast yet, inisital thoughts


Severson looked hurt, or just off near the end of the 3rd.  Seemed to be holding arm or something after a shift in ot.  


Trouble getting out of zone with puck behind net a few times.  Think the NHL guys were out there so can't blame the rookies.  Not sure if it was the Rags pressure, or more miscommunication, but it just didn't look good.  


Lots of wide open hockey in the third.  No clue if this is our new style or just a bad period, we shall see


Tieing a game in ot just hurts my head. 


just go to a 3-2-1-0 pt system so all of this ot crap doesn't matter as much as it currently does  Fine,league want a shootout, at least do it right


guess that 4 on 3 pp work will be big this year.  Why not just make every penalty a penalty shot in ot? sounds like a crappy idea the league would love.




Edit to add food review.  


They now have buffalo chicken and Taylor ham Strombolis.  No ranch or blue cheese, just marinara sauce.  I got the taylor ham, was cubed, not sliced.  I think slicing like they do witht he pepperoni would be better.  With mozz which didn't quite blend well for me.  I had one that was out for a bit while a friend had one that was fresh which he liked so that may be the issue.  I also think I will try it with ketchup next time if there is a fresh one.  I will give a buffalo chicken review once I try it withen a game or 2.  


Designated driver free soda is back.  Which will let me actually get more food.  No free soda last year cut down on my overall food buying

In Topic: Here we go again. New goal song for 14-15

26 September 2015 - 09:39 PM

the you suck part was figured out by the 2nd or 3rd goal.  I was at both games.  had what, 5k at the absolute most Friday night.  I assume your die-hard season ticket holders, the you suck after the vuvuzula guy was louder than when they just had the original song.  They even cheered after the cheer to add extra troll.  Really has turned into a Streisand effect.  


Its been fun to watch.   vuvu starts after goal is announced, so mascot starts a drum 'lets go devils' chant.  Devs wait to announce the goal during stoppage to go right music,  vuvu starts at the puck drop.  I see people yelling you suck now that didn't when it was just the R&Rp2.


tonight was a more mixed crowd.  bigger, more kids, lots o rangers fans.  still many yelling you suck and syncing up after a couple goals.  At this point if we play taps after a goal, we will stick a  you suck into it.  


I did not hear a 'rags suck Ps-Cw' chant the first night and did hear a few tonight.  That one always got me more upset,  I wouldn't mind once a non rangers game and maybe a few during rangers game without all the accouterments.  


At this point, put the old goal song, put the 'you rock' graphics at the appropriate times and you may organically kill the chant after a few loosing years, by making a big deal of it, you intensified just it. 


And I think I've mentioned my stance,  doesn't bother me, I don't chant it, let others have their fun.  Crowd doesn't make enough noise so trying to break up one of the few times they do doesn't make sense to me.  i do understand people not liking it, but don't get the intense hatred from some towards those that do like it.

wasn't an elderly lady that asked the question and there wasn't much attitude about it.


I was wrong, was thinking of a different question.


There was a bit of attitude, especially the In 'one man's opinion' question.

so... say your childhood idol sleeps with your gf.... are you kind of proud of her or pissed? haha


If he is anything like Peter Griffin he will feel like he slept with Jagr.


Better to find out now that she will blackmail someone for 2k then to hear a few months from now, oops, I forgot to take the pill.

In Topic: Devils sign PL3

before I look?  He an ex Penguin?

I'm guessing 75 - 25 he was.


Yes he was.


Still shouldn't see the ice for that stupid instigator when the team was short handed few years ago.  Doesn't matter how good of a fighter you are, you just have to know when it is needed(that was definitely not the time).  Yes it is needed at times, yes you can't be a liability on the ice.  PL3 didn't do either well.   


Maybe there will be some deboer - clarkson magic and Hynes gets PL3  3 goals.  Wouldn't shock me a this point, already in shock and have no idea how this season will play out.
