  1. Brian Boyle has scored for the Penguins tonight. Nice story, glad he is back in the league.

  2. HF boards has this thread so might as well do one here. All tickets, season tickets, and arena discussions including covid related polices for the arena can go in here. The people who aren't interested in this discussion won't have to whine about it anymore. New policy announcement today is a farce. I can confirm no wrist bands are being handed out so people can just wear a mask in and then take it off once inside. If you're a season ticket holder who isn't happy with this policy call your rep. New options have been announced and you can roll over your money to next year for the entire season and keep your seats or you can even take it month by month.

  3. Yet all but 4 out of the 700+ NHL players have decided to follow the guidelines to prevent those restrictions. Blackwood isn't ignorant of those restrictions. These didn't sneak up on him as they have been out for months now. He knows he cannot play in those games. He knows he is creating an issue for the team and his teammates. He know that he is under increased scrutiny. I am not going to pat him on the back for having his own opinion (which he is entitled to) and I sure as hell not going to do the same for creating this distraction for the team. Again, if the Devils are wanting to make the playoffs or at least be in the mix, they need to get as many points as they can with all hands on deck. Having your starting goaltender not available for a possible 18 points is throwing a massive wrench into those plans and everyone has the right to criticize him for that.

  6. I used to see them a lot at restaurants in NYC, but over the past 5-6 years the number of those places have declined. I can't remember the last time I got charged extra in NYC at a restaurant for using a card or going to one that doesn't accept cards at all.

  8. Or if they could at least create and dedicate a specific thread to this fvcking season ticket holders whine fest about policies. I come in this thread to hear about hockey, not this constant sh!t. I come here to escape this fvcking sh!t that's been everywhere for over a year now.

  14. He has 8 posts in the last two pages of this thread alone. How much is your retainer? Crazy that a guy spends that kind of cash to have his own little internet-cop, but I'm not going to judge how everyone else spends their money. EDIT: lmao oh jesus I just read the rest of your posts. My god you've perfected the art of writing 4 paragraphs and saying absolutely nothing. Some people here are self-obsessed losers who love hearing themselves talk. (Note, I'm not saying YOU are a self obsessed loser. I'm saying some people are! This game is fun.)

  16. One place in the city I used to go to was cash only for the longest time. They had an ATM on-site if needed, but the fees on that were crazy. Eventually, they got themselves in dire straits when their landlord raised their rent significantly one year with little notice. In a desperate move they started accepting CC but it was too little too late and thy closed for good about 5-6 years ago. Frankly I think the landlord wanted them out as they were in that space for some time and over that period the space became way too valuable. I think it is some retail chain now.

  17. Well, there you go. Easy enough. Though truth be told, this is the first time I've heard the term "reverse ATM" used. So... you put in cash, and it spits out a temporary debit card or something? Interesting

  18. No one is denying that there are and will be vaccinated players who are sidelined because of COVID. No one is saying that the vaccine is a silver bullet that makes you 100% immune from infection (though it reduces your chances of dying or being hospitalized to nearly zero). The issue is that we have a player who is creating unnecessary drama because he has so far refused to take it. He is literally only 1 of five now four players in the entire league that doesn't have it and it caused him to be pulled from the last preseason game at the last minute because of the inconclusive test he must now subject himself and others to. He is also right now, barring any changes, penciled in to missing at least 9 games because of it which for a team that has aspirations of being on the playoff bubble only makes things tougher. In short, he can do whatever he wants. However there is no denying he is making things far more complicated for both himself and the team for it.

  19. They also have reverse atms now so it's not like they aren't accepting cash at all, just making it an extra step for those people who want to use it. "For guests needing to convert cash to a card, Reverse ATMs are available with no fees by sections 1, 14, 125 and inside the Box Office Lobby."

  20. Oh man, don't get me started on churning those credit card bonuses. Pre-COVID, the sign-up bonuses paid for at least one vacation a year. Best I ever saw was Chase offering like $1500 to open a CSR. If you have a great credit score (750+), use that weapon to your advantage.

  22. This is exactly right, as long as the place involved doesn’t surcharge credit card purchases. I really don’t care if the vendor gets whacked, and the vendor shouldn’t either. It’s part of the process of accepting credit cards, which of course increases their business revenue.

  23. If you thought that "cash back" was coming from credit card company generosity, I am sorry your bubble has broken. The vendor accepting the card is getting whacked for that cash back. So vendors price accordingly. The Federal Reserve is the only entity that creates cash, legallly. One way to think about it is that your vendor is kicking you back the 2% to get or keep your business, not the CC company. Gasoline retailers, who work on miniscule margins, have charged more for cc sales for decades; now that is trickling down to other businesses.

  24. It started before Covid, but became more widespread now. Fair to say that most places around here are now applying the surcharge rather than not.

  25. A lot of restaurants around here are now surcharging any credit card purchases, which is 3.9% so it kills my 2% cash back. So I just stick with cash. If I don’t have cash on me, then I charge and deal with the fee.

  28. Because this is just ridiculous at this point, come on here to read about the devils and upcoming hockey season and it’s pages of vaccine discussion in the season thread. Maybe this forum doesn’t have enough moderators anymore.

  29. Another thread hijacked by the vaccine or else crowd. I don’t see what the big deal is, honestly. If you’re not comfortable going to games then don’t go, sit home in fear and watch as time passes you by. Want the vaccine? Great, go get it. Don’t want it? Don’t get it. If the vaccine is the end all be all go get it and you shouldn’t have to worry about the unvaccinated so much. Have the vaccine still scared? Here’s an idea then you walk around prudential center wearing a mask all night. Some people are just getting to be a bit much with this. Stay home if you’re scared. It’s that simple. More tickets for the rest of us.

  30. Arbitrary and non-sensical. For starters, proof of recovery from covid or a negative covid test should be as valid as the vaccine card. That being said, everyone should be required to wear the mask anyway. Breakthrough cases aren't rare and it's well documented that vaccinated individuals can catch and transmit covid. This is why negative test is the only way to enter the US through air. Realistic policy: If you're vaccinated, recently recovered or testing negative, come to the arena and wear a mask. If you're not in that cohort stay home.

  31. And then just constantly go around the arena checking for masks and wristbands? I just don’t see it happening.

  32. Okay…. We wanted a policy. They announced one. They are requiring proof of vaccination or a mask. What else were they supposed to do? Require a picture of the needle going in your arm?

  33. According to an email, Devils have updated their policy. You either have to show proof of vaccination at the door or have to wear a mask at all times. Not quite ideal, but going in the right direction.

  35. I know it feels like a few years back but that was installed in 2014 already. They did do some cool things with it originally but they either fired the people who know how to really use it properly or it simply can't do Vegas level stuff cause of the model they bought, I have no clue. For the price and what we have seen from it the past few seasons I agree though.

  36. What's amazing is that our owners installed an equally sophisticated on-ice projection system a few years back for over a million dollars and all they do with it is show generic videos of past Devils goals/moments in every single opener. That was definitely money well-spent. As for ESPN+, I didn't stay up to watch the Kraken game, but the quality was all over the place for the Lightning game stream. The commercials came in very clear, so it seems like they have a few bugs to work out on the live streaming portion.

  37. Agreed. The hockey gods did not like it one bit the last time… As for ESPN+, that’s disappointing to hear it’s already having issues. I decided to just keep center ice since I like to DVR the games. Kind of pricey just to have that luxury, but for me it’s worth it since I’m never ready to start the games on time, and I’m out on weekends a lot. I still plan to sign up for the bundle (might as well since I already had Disney +), but I’m glad I won’t have to rely solely on the streaming app for hockey.

  45. You’ll never please everyone but this team is overdue for a sharp 3rd jersey. We absolutely have the color scheme for one. Also that second part seemed pretty unnecessary.
