  1. Haven't posted on this forum in over 10 years, but live in Boston now and went to the home opener against NJ. Got third row so got to see a lot of action. Some thoughts post game: Coaching - Thought the same thing as everyone else, poor line match ups, poor adjustments during the game. Granted the Bruins have some of the best coaching in the game, but the Devils coaching was horrible. Bad notables: Taylor Hall - Had a couple of good shifts and did some good work in the corners to create some chances in the second period but doesn't look like the player he was two years a
  2. I'd love to see Drew Doughty in a Devils jersey. One can only wish.
  3. I like your thinking and your guts. I hate the idea of a tattoo on my arm but if your will to match that pledge and if the Devils make the playoffs I too will get a matching tattoo on my arm and send in pics to this entire forum. I love the Devils, but the thought of getting anything permanent scares me. As a youngster I told my parents I'd never get a piercing or tattoo. But on the other hand I'd give almost anything for the Devils to make it in.

    KOVI chant

    Maybe Kovy justed needed to be knocked around a bit. I gotta say I really like Kovy when he's pissed off. I really admired the skill tonight of Kovy and Elias working in tandom. I hope they continue to keep those two together.
  5. I don't understand why Maclean hasn't asked for a trade yet, he actually has some talent and should be on a team worthy of winning the Stanley Cup.
  6. While I don't believe that Elias would have consistently put up multiple 100 seasons if he had a chance on a more stacked team, but I do think that if Elias had been paired with an elite center for most of his career he would have broken 100 points at least a couple of times. The knock I have against Elias is that he needs a player to compliment his style for him to thrive. When we had Arnott who was motivated and doing the little things for him, Elias excelled. When Jason Arnott started mailing it in Elias struggled with him. I remember Elias and Gomez took a while to develop chemistry and Go
  7. Honestly at the peak of both of their careers (that is if we consider Parise right now at his peak), I would say Elias was more dangerous then Parise. Elias is still a very good offensive player and Zach is certainly the better player right now, but if you look at some of the old video clips of Elias in his mid twenties skating and dangling the puck, he was at the times the most dangerous winger in the league when he was confident. Elias in his prime was much stronger then Parise and I agree with Devils731 in that Elias has a lot more creativity with the puck. Elias was also a threat to score
  8. I'm actually not really that shocked to hear this. The kid has terrific hand eye coordination so it is no suprise that it translates over to hitting a baseball as well. You'll see a lot of athletes playing other sports for charity and looking like naturals just because of their athletic ability. I remember watching some football player getting a hold of jenny finch fastball on the Jimmy Kimmel show while Jimmy Kimmel himself looked hopeless. Pro Athletes are just super human.
  9. Parise is such a different player these last two years then he was in his rookie season. He reminds me a lot of Joe Sakic on how he is always moving around and finds those open pockets of space to make his plays. I think Maurice got it right by not so much shadowing him and focusing primarily on him, but rather taking away his options and giving him less time. Faster mobile defensemen are actually better suited for handling Parise then slow physical defensemen.
  10. I can't imagine what its like to be a fan against the Devils in the playoffs. I'd be scared every time I saw Parise on the ice. His ability to find open ice and always be around rebounds is scary. He has the best instincts of any forward I've ever seen play for the Devils.
  11. Went to the ducks game tonight despite being a fan of neither. One of the most intense games I've seen in a while.
  12. Point production aside, another debate I'd like is who would you rather have on your team? Assuming of course this is Parises's career year. Its a hard choice, but I'd take Elias as he was 8 years ago in his prime. He was faster then Parise is right now, was much stronger and once of the best stick handlers in the league. Parise definately sees the ice better, has a a much more accurate shot. Its really close but I'd choose Elias simply because of his better size.
  13. Ken Sutton I believe also wore #2.
  14. I got tossed off my bed. I was asleep and laying on the edge of my bed. At first I thought my apartment was getting bulldozed, but it kicked in right away it was an Earthquake. I got to my feet and in my doorway right away and for some reason standing there thinking it was going to get even worse in a second. It was building up more and more and then just it ended. There was maybe like 5/6 seconds of heavy shaking and maybe about 10 - 15 seconds of just a little bit of trembling. That was the first big earthquake I went through since I've lived here for 3 years.
  15. I feel really bad for the passengers. The first news report said the kid let out a scream that nobody will forget when he was being stabbed. Many of them are probably going to need counseling. I just want to know what the hell made the guy want to stab this kid if he isn't just some crazy psycho with no motive.
