  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. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. Watched most of this one with my dad last night...sadly he is back in NJ for a few days, as he is about to be given a treatment plan for a second battle with prostate cancer. He was blown away by Mac...kept saying “Damn, this guy is stopping everything!” He is extremely stressed, and it was nice to see the Devils give him a little break from that. As for the game itself...I’m sure the Flyers had to be thinking “How the hell did we lose by FIVE GOALS?! How did we not even find the back of the net once?” Devils at one point in the third period were 3-for-3. Puck luck definitely wen

  9. 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

  11. I figured it would be good to have a place where we can update on a regular basis how the Draft picks the Devil's received are shaping up. First let's set out the picks and conditions (if any): Arizona's 1st round pick for hall Conditions: Lottery protected, if Arizona wins the lottery and moves into any of the first 3 spots the pick moves to 2021 Current pick : 11th The ideal situation for this pick is that Arizona slides right down the order , fails to win the draft and we get another top 10 pick. They are still very much in the playoff race so I would say this is l

  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

  22. 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

  23. 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

  28. 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.

  29. Based on yesterday's activities, and the way Fitz was discussing the team's future, at this point does anyone really think that it's NOT going to be him going forward? Like I said in another thread, I think the owners believe in him...I think he has a vision, and was able to sell the owners on a possible plan. It would be easy to look at this as a "Baby Shero" kind of deal, much like Nas feels like Baby Hynes, but it really feels like Fitz was going to get an opportunity to be a GM somewhere, in the not-too-distant future...he seems to be pretty well respected around the NHL. So I don

  32. 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.

  33. If you do not trust other people's words, if you do not think that the game should impress someone, I can offer you the highlights of our players in the game Sweden-Russia. And it is up to you to choose which is better - highlight play and sea of points against third world countries or one or two points with solid game in the most important group games.

  35. Makes me realize just how spoiled we were by Marty, who was so good for so long. Cory had plenty of talent and I couldn't have been more thrilled when he signed his long-term deal, but as we found out, playing well and staying healthy well into your 30s is far from guaranteed. The balance of the past few years with Cory was very tough to watch. Really wish him the very best...he's a good guy and a class act. It's very clear that his teammates truly loved the guy and had never stopped rooting for him, no matter how demoralizing his performances could be. His contract obviously made

  38. After a few days of packing and other pre-move crap I’m at this position: If we actually play aggressive hockey and not that “well we can play a period of attacking hockey, then play scared the rest of the game” crap we’ve been doing, I don’t care who the coach is. It could be the two headed monster from Sesame Street with the horns for all I freaking care anymore. He’s not Hynes, he’s not Nas and he’s coached actual NHL teams before. Give me hockey back already.
