  1. I haven't posted here in a long time but something about tonight makes me want to. Maybe it's the return of Devils hockey. Brutal first period but they got it together in period 2 - they're going to give some teams trouble with all that speed. Sharangovich drawing 3 penalties, pretty great, him being drilled into the boards, not so great. Thought there were some nice moments for Kuokkanen and Boqvist. And obviously if Blackwood isn't as incredible as he was, we're talking about a lot of different stuff.

  4. So my cousin played juniors. Never big enough to make it to the show, but he has a ton of friends all around the sport. I was hanging with him at Christmas, and he had something to say that I thought would be interesting to you guys. One of his best friends played on Dawson Mercer’s former team in the Q. He said he was an 18 year old, Dawson was a 16 year old. By midseason, Dawson was the leader of the team. Not only was he everyone’s best friend, but he commanded everyone’s respect. My cousin said you have no idea how hard it is for a 16 year old to earn an 18 year old’s respect like tha

  5. Ruff currently doing a zoom call w/ STH's. Q&A. I asked several (had to submit before hand). Are you prepared to have patience with some of the younger players on the team to give them a real chance. Are you willing to perhaps lose a regular season game because Jack Hughes is getting outplayed by the other team’s line on a given night, but still keep him with skilled players as opposed to burying him and not giving him the learning experience while moving a veteran like Travis Zajac up simply because it’s the “safer coaching decision”. Will other younger players who

  8. This will probably get buried but I'm an architect and I helped design Hank's apartment a few years ago. The nicest dude you've ever met, but there's this one story that always sticks with me. We're in his kitchen with his wife Therese and he comes home from practice. He's wildly attractive btw, but that's unrelated. So we're mid conversation and he's kinda pawing at his shirt a little bit all awkward, he's in obvious discomfort. "Go ahead", his wife says to him. He smiles and nods and says "excuse me" and heads over to the kitchen sink. At this point I'm watching him like a hawk bec

  9. Tonight, I walked off of my plane for the last time. I’ll be honest with everyone, it’s been a brutal last few days knowing I won’t fly with 95% of these people again and more than likely won’t do what I’ve been doing for the last 6 years anymore. While it is nearly 100% by choice, it still doesn’t make it any easier. This thread has been my annual way to remind people to look out for one another, but as I walk away from the home I’ve known for the better part of a decade, I felt a bump was in order, since this place was what drove me to do so in the first place. We had a handful of

  10. Left at 4-1, simply couldn’t take it anymore and knew that they were toast. It was weird at first (and a little depressing), but the cardboard cutouts do help the seats feel more populated. The tarps do take you out of things just a little. Food choices are very limited, and the quality is definitely diminished. Not sure if we’ll go again, but my issue is really the on-ice product at the moment. They’re quickly becoming an infuriating and unwatchable bunch. Palms is still getting his share of good chances, but the real problem I see with him at the moment is that he’s really become

  13. This does need to be treated seriously but at the same time panic doesn't help anyone. The current mortality rate for Covid-19 is 4% for known reported cases , seasonal influenza mortality rate is 0.1% and global influenza deaths fluctuate between 2-4% annually. These are all readily available WHO figures. And just remember 4% of the American population is 13.5 million people. That being said there isn't any need for panic. Sensible measures like regular hand washing and self isolation if you have symptoms can stop the spread. It is true that the vast majority of people who g

  23. Back in 2009, when I had season tickets, the Devils has this goofy little area setup right at the top of the escalators of the north entrance tower (now i think it’s a liquor bar or something?) where they’d have stuff to do at intermission. Sometimes it was videogames, usually there was table hockey. Well this one time there was a fake play-by-play booth. There was a green screen behind you and you did color commentary for “Doc”, who was recorded, and you had lines you could read or you could improvise. Doc’s lines would also show up on the screen so you’d know what to say. I was pu

  24. This may sound selfish, but it means as much to me as it does to you. May be more but in absolutely other way. I rooted for the team for a very long time with the help of small newspaper articles. Sometimes it turned out to meet games on TV if I was lucky(there worked Russian commentators and they didn’t do well) or when we met parents friends in their house, they had Sputnik tv, where I watched my first games on english. I finally got the Internet, the first thing I did, besides porn, was watching devils games live. His voice was the first, he was like a father who told stories. admi

  29. Out of all the things to get upset about this miserable season I just can't get worked up about an 18 year old who still looks like a little kid. How many posts has he hit this season? How many fantastic passes that were wasted because his linemates couldn't do anything with them when some should have been easy goals? He's shown plenty of glimpses of talent. Deciding to give up on him this soon is such a ridiculous reaction that it's really not even worth discussing.

  30. I’m a 45 year old architect and own a small commercial firm in the northern suburbs of Philadelphia. I grew up in Wayne NJ but came to Philly for college and have been here ever since. I was a goalie for about 30 of those years but repeated groin injuries and Father Time forced me to convert to a beer league guilt-free defenseman that constantly pinches at ill-advised times. When I was very young I gravitated to the Nordiques, mostly for the uniforms. My Grandmother had corporate season tickets for the Devils and we went to a few games a year. I eventually made the full switch

  31. Great thread - cool to learn a bit more about you guys and nice way to kill the downtime indeed. I'm Greg, turning 35 in two or three weeks. Originally from Long Island, moved to Southwest FL with my folks when I was a young teenager. People often ask if I'm originally from NY, why am I a Devils fan? They don't usually get if if they're not from that area, but I always tell them there used to be (and still is) a phrase called the "Tri-state" area, i.e. NY, NJ, CT - because of that phrase and how closely intertwined the states can be in some areas, local TV stations showed (and still sh

  34. After such a long period of no hockey being able to once again see how quick this game can be is just amazing. Blackwood made the save on Grzelcyk with 10 seconds left in the OT and somehow the Devils have enough time to gather the puck, move it up ice, set up Sharangovich and score. That's insanity. I really missed hockey y'all.

  36. I finally watched Zaitsev's game. And made a couple of video recordings. His number 86, he is left handed LD. He was 12 min 47 sec on the ice. He didn`t play in PP or PK. Zaitsev is a stay at home D with good skating. He skates back well, squeezes players out of the zone, and knows how to use pokecheck. He tries to cover dinamo`s back as much as possible, but at the same time he has a good starting speed, and in general he skates quite fast. He tries to play simply, gives short passes. He makes passes like this on the video. Short, and i can

  38. As a father of two as well, my approach, for better or worse, will be this: My kids need to learn how to lose. My kids need to learn how to have someone have a different opinion than their own and they HAVE to be okay with it. You won’t always like what someone has to say, but you will respect them as long as they respect you back. We have entered a dangerous time where having differing opinions on subjects or views is considered extremism, and for lack of a better phrase, it really feels to me like it has become “conform to my take or die”
