  1. Finally got around to listening to the Daneyko spittin chiclets interview and my god, you should all go listen. He is a wind up toy with talking though. Usually the hosts ask several questions and steer the interview. He just talked uninterrupted for like 2 hours. Went all over the place with his stories. My biggest takeaway is that I’ll be way easier on him with how he commentates. Because, holy sh!t guys, there is not a single person on this planet who likes the Devils more than Dano. He is just so, so, so endlessly proud to represent our organization. It’s beautiful to hear.

  2. Got contacted by the MSG Network today, asking me if I am interested in working with them and having the puck project appear on air in the upcoming season.

  3. It happened in an election year, it was fvcked from the start, one way or the other. I’m so tired of people complaining that “the government” is getting too involved and they should have more freedom, meanwhile the government is involved in nearly every aspect of your daily life. And while I’m at it, stop saying that forcing people to wear masks or get a vaccine is “unconstitutional”. The only reason people say that is that the average American knowledge sh!t about the Constitution.

  4. Thoughts from the game: Really impressed with Zetterlund. Hoping he can start on the 4th line with the Devils this season. Good energy and a fair amount of skill. Holtz: Started off slowly, but began to do what he's supposed to be doing, getting open in the right spots and ripping shots. The goals will come if he continues to do that. I also think he offers a lot more than just shooting, which is all everyone ever talks about. Mercer: Solid, he improved throughout the game. Showing what he will bring to the next level. He's a really complete player. I thought he began to develop some chemistry with Holtz, which was nice to see. Bahl: Still lukewarm on him, but liked him more here than in the other games I've seen. Daws: Made some big saves, he might actually have an NHL future. Clarke and Okhotiuk look most NHL ready on the Devils to me. Walsh was showing why he has struggled to make it to the next level. Chico: I miss this guy so much. He is a ton of fun on the air, always laughing and making jokes.

  6. I know the amount of cord cutters are increasing, but the majority still have cable and NBCSN is part of most cable carriers basic package. Now, without getting into VPN's and illegal streams to avoid blackouts, I pay to watch the team on basic cable on MSG and I have to pay again for ESPN+/Hulu to watch 10% of the team's games. A lot of new fans of hockey get started because they are flipping channels and land on an NHL game. Now, they have to basically search it out even more to access it. The NHL should be limiting the amount of barriers to watching games given how weak their ratings are compared to the other leagues, not making more of them.

  7. Thanks. If that is the case I should be alright. Worst comes to worst I can sign up for ESPN+ and then cancel since it appears a majority of the games are in November. For a league that is way behind the other NA major leagues, the NHL seems to shoot themselves in the foot a lot. Adding essentially a paywall/barrier is not how to grow the sport.

  9. my go to joke lately at parties has been to look at my phone and GHASP loudly and say “that actress died! she was stabbed!!!! reese.... (long pause)” someone inevitably goes “Witherspoon????” and you reply “no... with a knife.” 100% success rate so far

  10. After seeing this guy's submission and him NOT getting picked as one of the top 10; this thing now has the feeling of that goal song contest they had a couple years back. I now think they already have someone in mind and this was just a way to collect fans contact info to sell tickets. I mean this guy is far better than at least 8 of the guys in the running.

  14. For me it's personally more about not supporting the idea of more exclusive streaming options. Everything has its own streaming service nowadays and it's gotten to the point of being ridiculous. People bitch and moan about cable pricing but to have all these streaming services plus a good internet connection it ends up being closer to the same price as cable to begin with.

  17. I’d only be on board for replacing him if he wants to leave. He’s Mr. Devil, he should be hanging around, and that job is the perfect spot for him to do so.

  19. Remember when he refused to sign with the Sabres and instead signed with the Rangers, wound up blowing goats, and they traded him after three seasons to the very team he had refused to sign with? He definitely does. I can't even imagine how awkward that must have been, being like "fvck that noise, I'm not signing with that sh!tty team" and then having to show up with your bag and be like "hey guys" to said sh!tty team.

  23. Replays yes, but often when you are streaming a live event, you cannot restart it or start it late, you have to wait until it’s over and then start it. I hope that isn’t the case here.

  24. The problem with this virus since day 1 when it was a threat to the US is politicians decided to make it part of a platform. Period. Dot. End of story. Hard right or hard left, people took stands, meanwhile the average American said fvck it, give me my chip. and no, I’m not starting a debate.

  26. Hope Okhotiuk will make the roster. Great game from him. I didnt see how he lost puck battle. And ofcourse Mercer was good. Every game in Q i did watch last season was only fun to watch him. I like how Talvitie did play today, not flashy, but good 200 foot game. Holtz must be better to score. He finally start to move and not standing and waitin for the shot. Good pass game from him, did make great pass to Clarke. Foote was ok, but wanna see more physical game from him, more involved, more push in forecheck. I know it is a loss but it was a prospect game only. Devils looks better(except Walsh), there were a lot of talent. And buffalo goalie is a good high rank 23 yo prospect.

  30. Was looking at my collection with a “what’s next” view, and I realized I already have 3 out of the 12 captains in team history. I imagine most of them are readily available. So now I have a side quest.

  31. IF it took/takes them off MSG locally for these broadcast I think it drastically hurts the brand with the local causal fan who you may actually win over to attend games etc. at some point, while also pissing off some die hards. If it doesn't take them off the local broadcast but is in addition to than I would agree it can only help. Even then though I think it's only going to help already hardcore Devils fans in out of market areas who find it cheaper than Center Ice or don't have access to it. I personally don't believe any team is winning over many/any fans by watching a small handful of games on a streaming service. That's just my opinion. ::shrugs::

  32. I would add, if I were to take a stand against streaming services, I wouldn’t start with the one that has Devils games. But that’s just me.

  33. In Devils news that I'm actually pissed off about. Apparently the Devils have 8 games that are exclusively on ESPN+/Hulu. I'm not paying for more streaming services. This is exactly the type of sh!t I was worried about when ESPN came on board. I'd rather have had NBC stick around.

  34. The other way to possibly look at it is: if you’re eligible for a rookie camp, why not go? Is there anyone eligible who’s just simply not attending? A few extra days of training with the coaches and skating with the team never hurt anyone.

  36. We get that, but the optics are terrible. The Devils not being able to send out a list of who is at camp yesterday (thankfully they did that this morning) but instead we get Amanda sending out pictures of an empty notebook and her shoes is very cringe. Chris Ryan at the Star Ledger is useless and Cory Masaisasasak seemed to be MIA yesterday. I don't even think The Record has anyone on the beat anymore.

  37. I catch them all on live streams and have since around 2011(for the most part). I have pretty much always prioritized Devils games, and since moving to Texas in late 2019 I have become even more of a hermit due to covid and having limited friends down here. I work from home too, so no chance I ever get caught at the office late. I just turn on the stream and keep working if I have to.

  38. I don't think the Yankees whistling to signal pitches (if that's what they were even doing) is that big of a deal...if a guy's tipping his pitches, then of course you're going to tell your teammates, and even try to do it in real time. As long as the Yankees weren't using any video or other tech to steal signs or anything like that, I can't get on them. And Walker's been bad enough in his last 10 starts (7.38 ERA and an ungodly 17 HRs allowed in his last 50 IP) that you can't help but wonder if a LOT of other teams have noticed that he's tipping his pitches, but were simply more subtle in exploiting it. That being said, cheating doesn't always lead to the intended ("positive") results. There's 'roiders who still weren't all that much better once they went on the juice. Jimmy Johnson admitted that he used to have people trying to pick up the opposition's signaling of plays, but abandoned it simply because he didn't really think it was helping him all that much. So though I'm not accusing the Yankees of cheating here, I will say that some teams who are trying to cheat simply aren't benefitting from it...but obviously doesn't mean that they're not guilty by virtue of suckage.

  40. It's funny MD, as a Pats' fan, you can definitely look at the glass half-empty or half-full. Half-full: the kid QB got more comfortable as the game went on (and was allowed to throw deeper), there was better play from the TEs and WRs than last season (WRs getting separation is still a bit of an issue though), and not really a badly played game by the Pats overall, even with the two turnovers. Half-empty: 16 points won't win a lot of games, and losing a close one (and winnable one) at home to a division opponent is costly...we have no idea how Jones will fare initially in much tougher road buildings. I'm 100% on board with Jones being given the reigns right off the bat, but even with the rules so QB-friendly now, it's still tough to jump right in without a year (or at least a couple of months) to watch and learn. You gotta expect some tough "Welcome to the NFL" games as a true rookie QB. Of course, if Buffalo wins and the Pats win (against the Jets), suddenly everyone in the East is 1-1. A bit like a reset.
