  1. Can't say this summer's been boring.
  2. Wonder who will be the new team president...
  3. The Toronto thing surprised me more than anything else. How is that going to work? Were they desperate for a GM? TY Lou for your positive contributions to this organization. But it was clearly time to move forward. Both on and off the ice.
  4. Wasn't this guy slated to go in the 1st round?' On paper it's a stupid move but you gotta think long term. Kinkaid might want to move on after his contract's up. Or if he puts up nice numbers for the upcoming season he's quality trade bait. Hell for all we know Corey might be traded sooner than later as we might not be competitive for a couple of years.
  5. Oilers needed a defensive D-man... Blame Boston for being stupid.
  6. Good. No problem with Zacha. He's gonna fill a need. Just don't rush the kid.
  7. So what exactly is wrong with Crouse? Is he not skilled enough? Is he the prototypical "Devils player" we need to shy away from? Or something else?
  8. Good thing home opener is a Friday because if this was on a Sun-Thu, oooh boy
  9. Man how time flies. Remember being glued to Channel 5 throughout the night and being excited when the clock reached 0:00 at age 11. I witnessed one of my favorite teams win a championship for the first time and the fact they came from NJ was even more thrilling for me.
  10. 1)Strome or Zacha 2)KHL forward with potential 3)Gelinas or 2nd for Pulkkinen?
  11. People forget that a new arena in downtown Phoenix is an option as the Suns' owner wants to build one and the mayor has reached out to the Coyotes. http://ktar.com/22/1841872/Phoenix-Mayor-Greg-Stanton-Suns-willing-to-talk-about-sharing-arena-with-Coyotes
  12. For all this talk about us needing to get younger this is who we target? Stupid move if it comes to fruition and not because he's a Ranger or whether he'll help us make the PO or not.
  13. I feel bad for the chumptards who paid out the rectum for those seats last night. Okay I kid I don't feel bad. After reading the "analysis" on MSG it makes me wish the Devils weren't stuck on that network. The SCF should be entertaining regardless of who comes out of the west.
  14. People are underestimating the west again. Did you not learn your lesson last year? Plus last I checked it's tied when people have said this series would be over in 5 or even a sweep in favor of the skirts.
  15. Currently in Montgomery County in the burbs NW of Philly. You'd be damned lucky to find someone wearing Devils gear in this whole area, especially with the lousy seasons they've had recently. They did(do) sell some Devils stuff at Franklin Mills mall at some sports shop when I was there a couple of years ago. Odd thing is I keep seeing this black dude in a Rangers jersey around KOP mall once in a while. Also when it's 50/50 in the heart of Jersey far away from the Hudson River, even when the team was doing well, then sorry but something is seriously wrong and the Devils should be ashamed of themselves for not promoting themselves better especially in their own state. 50/50 in Hudson county, Bergen county and directly up to the NY state border I get, but freaking Westfield?
  16. Washington Crapitals FTW. Shameful.
  17. Not to mention that year we were thisclose to getting eliminated by the Florida Panthers. When people bring that crap up they're basically telling us nothing needs an overhaul, we're fine, etc. No we're not fine. Why accept mediocrity? Shero's a fresh face. Think he's learned from his mistakes in PIT(hopefully). He does have success in the new NHL. He's got work to do but he has the ability to turn this thing around. The draft is probably the starting point for him unless he does something earlier.
  18. If the team is good and marketable they'll show up. You forget that despite branding issues our team managed to draw 15,000 despite an awful season. Also sold out nearly every game in 2012 which is something they couldn't do at the Swamp after their last Cup(regardless of the excuses). Problem was building a 25,000 soccer arena in tight Harrison with limited parking wasn't the best choice. Agree with MD's rants. You already have 2 airports within NYC limits with access to overrated Manhattan. Use those if you love NYC so damn much. As far as "costs" lol if you can afford a flight to EWR you can afford a flight to the 2 NYC airports. You think with Christie as gov state pride would have improved.
  19. According to the Penguins' beat writer Tom Fitzgerald is likely to follow. https://twitter.com/MolinariPG/status/595318770161340417 His profile: http://penguins.nhl.com/club/page.htm?id=56242
  20. Had to happen eventually. Surprised it got done this soon. Lou is still team president so we'll find how much pull Shero will have. So ownership was involved. Good. At least they care.
  21. Not in 2013. And even this year they managed to draw over 15,000 despite being dreadful. Before the move in 2007 this team had a hard time attracting FAs(despite them being able to sign a bunch over the years). It's nothing new and it's not the only franchise in the league who has this issue(Buffalo? Columbus? Carolina? Arizona?). It's more to do with the franchise being stuck in its old ways than anything so to put the entire or even most of the blame on the city is ignorant. Marketing is important yet at the same time what is there to market in terms of this sorry craphole of a team who has missed the playoffs 4/5 years?
  22. Them reducing the number of club seats stood out for me. Good. Thought it was stupid for the place to have that many clubs when the arena was being constructed, and it's stupid in 2015.
  23. It will have to be a package for a younger, impactful(or potentially impactful) player in a Stamkos, Drouin, ROR or Couture, even a Malkin(if healthy could really turn this team into a playoff contender). Doubt Edmonton is gonna trade Hall. Also perhaps a smaller package for a Strome. Other than that unless they draft a d-man, Crouse or worse take the 6th and run.
  24. Nope. And not just because I hate them. Even if we were to somehow win again, McDavid might not be a Devil after draft night. How would you feel if they won the Cup and we come away with something baffling based off a trade or a stupid Lou move like opting for someone other than McDavid?
