  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. 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.

  3. 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.

  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.

  13. 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.

  14. Kinda hoping they do a throwback night and rock that old logo. I always had a soft spot for the Utica Devils because that was that farm team when I started following NJ

  16. 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.

  19. 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.

  21. 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.

  24. Agreed plus the fact that so many people are absolute selfish morons. My disappointment in the human race is at an all time low over all this. Members of my family actually fought in World War 2, actually made real sacrifices to try to protect this country and the world. In our present time all we had to do was wear some masks and get a free shot to protect one another and ourselves and we could have ended this sh!t months ago and moved on with our lives but instead we are dragging this out and we have people acting like we are oppressed. I find it absolutely infuriating. Not gonna trail off too much politically but I think the two party system is broken and I find that the vast majority of politicians are attention seeking ego maniacs and that they all care more about themselves and their parties more than what's best for the general public. It always feels like it's choosing the candidate who still sucks but doesn't suck as much as the other options. Red or Blue, it's a different shade of poo.

  27. Yep. Not surprised honestly, people were like “oh, I can get the same stuff for way cheaper”, but then Hollywood and everyone else said “oh yeah? We have an app for that”. Had to know they’d figure that out.

  29. Well, I have Disney+ and Hulu, and as I mentioned above, I believe it’s zero added cost for ESPN+ if you switch to package pricing, which I did just about immediately after it became available. So I have it ready to go if needed.

  30. Re: Ojeda, that was legit…he wound up missing much of 1987 due to ulnar nerve damage in his pitching elbow. Gotta think what he went through in 1986 was related. And yeah, lots of emotion from a number of players…really was a shame that they didn’t get a second shot in 1987 relatively intact…but you had Gooden’s drug suspension, Carter’s decline beginning…even if Knight and Mitchell had stuck around, who knows what would’ve happened? There was a lefty reliever who came with McReynolds, who was even more wrong for New York…a guy named Gene Walter. I remember him because he was that classic awkward lefty, and because in his first appearance, he walked the bases loaded on 12 pitches, then blew up. Total disaster here. EDIT: the bases loaded game was actually his sixth as a Met (had to look it up), and he was a little better than I remember….he just missed so much time due to injury, and was only here a couple of seasons.

  31. chico was more..... fun, though? he was so goofy and he brought levity to the broadcasts. my main issue with dano is his “OH NOOOO” yells. salt in the wound when a big opportunity is squandered or a big goal is scored against us.

  33. they're going to go with someone who has experience, we all know this is just a push to get emails and phone numbers for the sales dept.

  34. Some have some experience while others have zip. Two of the guys I voted for have some sort of experience in PA announcing or announcing in general (radio, DJing, etc). If you watch all the audition videos it is pretty easy to spot who has experience versus those who do not.

  35. Two out of the playoffs disappointing clubs actually got together and played a memorable series. If both these teams were actually top of their division...we'd be looking back at these games as memorable classics...there'd be whispers of an October preview. I'm amazed...they could've swept 'em. Would it have made a difference? Probably not, too much ground to make up. Too few games. And there's always Diaz and Rojas lurking to take the air out of our sails when it looks like things are starting to turn (or the bats will make some Marlin scrubs look like Maddux/Glavine)

  36. Like, not to beat a very-much-so-dead horse here, but 7 of the top 10 players in the league are keepers. 17 of the top 25. Granted, I've got two of them so I probably should just keep my mouth shut. Pick #3 in the draft gets you the 11th best player. 14th and 15th picks get you the 36th/37th best players. Spoiler alert: If you're drafting in spots 3-14 in the first round you're screwed.

  38. My favorite moment was a pair of young ladies who told me that they couldn’t decide between them which one “gets” me, and do I think I could handle them both. Indeed.

  39. My favorite retail story was when I had just gotten picked up for my current job back in ‘12, but was working at sh!tstop then, so I knew the light was at the end of the tunnel. Some guy came in, flipped his sh!t on me about some stupid game system or another. He actually threatens to beat the sh!t out of me, I said let’s see what you’ve got…. He pops to attention, tosses a salute and says “army, special forces” so I returned it and rattled off where I knew I was going and made up what command I would be under. Never saw that “special forces” guy again, but I ended up getting what I rattled off 2 years later, so that was pretty funny.

  40. You may never have done those things, but you understood. I worked in retail from 1992 at age 15, basically straight through until I got my bar exam results in November 2001. Most of it was spent working in a shoe store. Became a junior assistant manager at age 19 or so, which meant I was allowed to carry keys and open and close. Had lots of fun, what happens in the stockroom stays in the stockroom, hitting on/picking up customers, etc. Also, had to point out whenever a customer was wearing a hairpiece in the following manner: Me: How would you like toupee? Customer (angrily): WHAT DID YOU SAY??? Me: You know, cash, credit card… Customer always selected their payment method in hopes that their clever scalp disguise had not actually been detected and they just misheard me. Every time, and there were plenty. I definitely miss retail, all the time.

  41. So he just fvcked you in the ass and you didn’t get a picture? Lol. But seriously, that is really cool. Still one of my favorite movies of all time. I probably bought 50 copies for various friends I met while working in retail while in school. Kind of like “you have to watch this and see how accurate it is”. Nobody disagreed. The quotes on there are great, but anyone who ever worked any kind of retail knows “This job would be great without the fvcking customers”.
