  1. Normally, I'd put an off topic post in another sub, but I feel it is important enough to post here. As the holidays arrive, please, look out for one another, including your friends and family. This time of year is rough for some as they don't always feel included or just feel like they aren't valuable to anyone. I bring this up because about 24 hours ago, I found out a coworker whom I looked up to and went to often for advice took his life in his home, leaving behind a family. He tragically becomes the fourth person I know this year to take their own life. I had no clue. He was alway

  3. To everyone.. thank you. Thank you so much. Your kind words.. I mean, they just mean so much. It just.. it means a lot that you guys are so compassionate to a person and his family who most of you haven't met. Thank you. I don't think I've cried during many hockey games in my adult life, but last night felt special to me. We watched the whole game and honestly couldn't believe our eyes. I don't want to get too "out there" with this post (and I'm already rambling) but I can't help but feel she had a hand in some of those strange bounces in our favor last night. Here's hoping she sav

  8. Sometimes, you have a great day. Watched my daughter sing with her choir. Nothing more angelic than hearing a children's choir sing. My dad is fully recovered from his prostate cancer treatment and his PSA is about as low as it can be. Damned near ZERO. A rough year for him has finally come to end. Recorded the game and watched it in full with him. Taylor Hall...goddamn. Guy is doing it all AND finishing. Who knows if he can keep THIS up (guy is as hot as hot can be), but man it will be fun as hell to watch him try. Hopefully some have learned that there is life

  9. June 23rd, 2017 will go down as the day that will make or break Ray Shero as the GM of the New Jersey Devils. He did what we all thought needed to happen -- he bottomed out. 3 years in a row drafting in the top-10. Now, the number one overall pick in the draft (and a plethora of picks later to make moves.) I'll pretend for the rest of this post that he isn't stupid enough to draft Makar. Maybe if we still had Lou and his 3 Stanley Cups for the franchise keeping him firmly rooted, he'd do something that risky (or stupid). Not a 3rd year GM who hasn't finished within 10 points of a playoff spot

  10. As we approach the holiday season with Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwanza next week, I am doing my annual bump of this thread in memory of my friend(s) and to help those still battling their own way. Each year, I advocate those around me to reach out if they need anything, literally any time, but a few weeks ago, I realized I was doing so without providing much credibility of myself. So here;'s a bit of my backstory WARNING: Emotional post ahead. In 2016, about two months before I had made the original post, I was diagnosed with the early stages of PTSD. It was a freaking nightmare to be in t

  14. RECAP This is a perfect example why you shouldn't own furniture. The less times you stub your toe, the better. In order to not stub your toe, you need to pay attention to where you're walking Devils are 5-12-1 since the toe-stub TOE RECAP Toe 1: Acceptable, no real damage Toe 2: Acceptable, maybe could have gotten a little less bent. Toe 3: Acceptable, close to danger zone but stayed intact (Greene was still bad) Toe 4: Acceptable, absolutely nothing MB could have done to hurt it Toe 5: Culprit #1. Direct contact right into a table leg

  16. Patrik Elias retiring was going to have me come out of retirement. The last link we all have to those great teams that now seem so far away. I am sure we can debate HHOF or not for a long time and what could have been. And I bet in a different circumstance, on a different team, with a different style, with different teammates, the decision would be easy. But that's what Elias sacrificed, and he doesn't seem to have any issues with that. Patrik Elias did what every die-hard fan of a team wants their star player to do. He put winning before anything else. He took less money, less free

  17. That's a stupid title, and this is a stupid thread. When did Shero say we're "out of" our rebuild? Our top organizational defensive prospect isn't ready yet, our top two centers aren't old enough to buy a beer at the Prudential Center. There's a core here that can be a very solid hockey team without a tear-down "rebuild-part-two." The devils need Jack Hughes to become a star and Nico Hischier to become a quality cornerstone player. They need Ty Smith to work out, and they need to nail it with their draft this year. Most importantly, they need to find a solid return from Hall and a coach

  18. Pretty sure it's literally just because I changed my twitter display name to "Blake Coleman Fan Club" like 3-4 weeks ago. I have always interacted with the NJDevils account on there here and there. So on St. Patrick's Day we were in Hoboken and I posted some picture of the group of us watching the Kings-Devils game in Hoboken with some caption about the Devils. The NJDevils account responded "Blake Coleman Fan Club never sleeps!" Anyway, so I guess 20 people got a golden wristband. I wasn't one. However, I saw that they put up on their twitter that they'd be selecting one fan to go out t

  19. Won’t be tuning in, but I have a good reason. Tonight is my wife and my third anniversary. Our third year of marriage was a disaster; after visiting her brother in the ICU for two weeks stemming from a terrible drunk driving accident (he was not the drunk one), she contracted a nasty disease from the hospital. Three attempts at surgery were unsuccessful, so she was moved to a specialist. she’s spent the better part of this entire year in a hospital room or an operating room. 19 surgeries in total. It bankrupt her, it took our nest egg that we were ready to turn into a house and used it o

  21. Bahl is obviously the most intriguing of the three prospects coming back. 6'6", 230 lb left shot defenseman that's going to be playing with Ty Smith on Team Canada at the World Juniors in a couple weeks, and this year I think he's taken a significant step in his two-way game. Primarily, he's still a physical shutdown defenseman and I think he likely projects as a #4 defenseman who can play on our top PK unit at his ceiling, but he also has some decent mobility and hands for a player his size. Tonight, I was already planning on watching a 67's game in preparation for an article on Marco Rossi I

  22. I will not be physically able to stay awake long enough to watch this game. So I am making all of these comments in advance and hoping they will apply somewhere in this thread. Cory Schneider looks like the old Cory Schneider. Hall!! Glad to see him back to scoring goals. That's what she said.

  24. Ray has an incredible opportunity this offseason to make a quantum leap forward. He's got more assets than he'll ever have. He has an expansion draft where teams are absolutely going to be squeezed. He's got more cap room than anyone and an offseason that's going to see the cap stay relatively flat. There's the fear that you go "Buffalo shortcuts." That didn't work out for them this year but you can "shortcut" the right way and dramatically improve. I don't believe in the need to be a "cup contender." If you get into the playoffs, you have a chance. And if the Devils get into the pla

  28. Never made a Game Day Thread before. Maybe some minor change in my life will result in some major change elsewhere in the universe. Namely, on the ice surface in Newark tonight. Three games have been discouraging, but let't not lose hope y'all. We're one outstanding performance on home ice from remembering why this team excited us so much all summer. LGD!

  32. Based on how everyone in hockey told us the lead up to the expansion draft was going to be one of the craziest offseason events we've ever witnessed, sure it's disappointing that we're not at least sitting here with a guy like Vatenen right now. That being said, I think people are being way too pessimistic about Shero and this team going forward. When he took over a little more than 2 years ago, he was left with pretty much nothing other than that some cap flexibility and a star goalie. Because of 10 years of losing/trading top picks and then using the ones we did keep for 3rd line grinder

  35. I don't normally post here, and this is why. Disclaimer: You may fall asleep half way through this. Benjamin Franklin referred to New Jersey as a barrel tapped at both ends. Sandwiched between the South River and the North River—today’s Delaware and Hudson—New Jersey’s colonial identity was synonymous with that of its closest city, either New York or Philadelphia. This split identity resulted in a political divide during the colonial era, creating Berkley’s West New Jersey and Carteret’s East New Jersey. Even though official unification came in 1702, we still live in a divided state that exi

  41. In general, pretty much all of the aspects of the game have been covered, so I don't have much to add on that front...as we continue to see, Hall has found another level. I've never seen a Devils forward EVER take over a game the way he can, and that's not to insult some of the terrific ones the Devils have had through the years. People in my section (210) were genuinely blown away by his game last night, and that sums up how I often feel watching him play. And of course, on top of everything else, the guy now finishes, all of the time. I just hope he can keep being this kind of player for
